You know that school started back this week I assume. It was time really wasn’t it? We had a great holiday but that last week was trying with tired kids & a tired mum, kids sick of each other & a mum sick of the kids. It’s true. Luckily it passes!
So for the first couple of days this week I was seeing lots of gorgeous sweet images on Facebook & blogs I follow of the kids all dressed in their uniforms, beaming smiles & glowing eyes. New bags, lunchboxes, shoes & a fair few trimmed locks – adorable, touching images. You saw some too probably.
I thought I’d try the same with my own gorgeous, sweet, adorable & freshly shorn 7-yr old but I have to say – fool am I! I got not a smile but a tear. Not a tear for his aching little heart that would surely be missing his beautiful nurturing (poetic license) mother all day. NO. He gave me tears because I was making him have his photo taken. Huh?
and then he turned on his heel & walked off…
This is why I take candid shots of my kids. Never ask them to strike a pose, ever!
I can tell you that despite the sad face in these pics, he had the time of his life at school this week & that’s all that matters. Oh & I missed him, like crazy.
Have a great weekend.
