Taking blog photos is always interesting. Wait, did I write “interesting”? Because I mean “mortifying”. The act itself is embarrassing enough (I think my neighbours think I’m a whackadoodle … which is probably not that far off, actually), but then there is my entourage. I use that term loosely, obviously; I’m referring to my kids. Miss T is still too young to cause much of a commotion, but her brother’s got her back – he creates enough commotion for two kids. Two kids and a hyena. A very angry hyena.

Which means I usually end up with at least one photo that looks like this:

What the heck, angry hyena?

I’m trying not to read too much into it (and failing), but my son loves asking to have his photo taken – while doing random things. To wit:

“And the car was brokened. And Taylor fixed it. But not really.”

In case you’re confused, he is reading a “book”. Better known as an IKEA storage box. Apparently, it was a very good story – by the sounds of it, loosely based on the narrative pattern of The Giving Tree, and featuring his dad’s 1974 Beetle and Taylor Swift. This, by the way, describes 85% of stories he “reads”.

Alrighty then!

Sometimes, the outfit is the least interesting part of it all.

  1. LOL! At least he’s interested in “reading” 🙂 Must be all the books on your shelf to give him such ideas. I like the blazer rolled up… For some reason I have a problem wearing blazers with the sleeves untouched. I NEED to roll them up. Compulsively.

    • Yeah, me too. I just like bracelet length (or 3/4) sleeves best.
      And lol! He does actually know the alphabet, and can “spell” out words if they’re in block capitals, but he’s not quite at the actual reading stage. I guess Harvard will have to wait 😉

    • Yeah, I’ve been perfecting that look for almost 3 years. I’m glad to hear it’s coming along. It’ll be working overtime as Thing #2 heads into her toddlerhood.
