Even more important is to take this opportunity to stretch and improve one's photography. Not just document because that is all one has time to do, but to push one's envelope. Everyone take photos of their kids...but what else can one do with the subject matter?

When my three boys had yet learn to crawl and I had them to take care of by myself from get-up to go-to-sleep, I manipulated SX-70 images of the boys in between bottle-feeding 3 infants every couple of hours (not to mention diaper changes!) -- I had no time for darkroom work. Eventually I could use my small camera (Rolleiflex) until I could start using the 8x10.

What do you do when life hands you lemons, and you don't have any sugar? You just pucker up and enjoy it!
