Don’t you just love lazy weekends? I do. Last Saturday, I had a lovely long(ish) lie-in while the husband took little T out for a father-daughter brunch date at our friends cafe nearby. They don’t do this often, so when a chance for a lie-in comes up I grab it as if my very life depended on it. If you’re a mum with a small child, I’m sure you’ll know how precious and how rare these moments are.
T was in a good mood after lunch, so I grabbed this chance by asking her to wear some of the new clothes I got for her this week. Of course, for any mum who blogs, this also means a chance for a photo shoot. If your daughter is like mine, who doesn’t really being photographed and likes to annoy me by making the silliest and most ridiculous poses just as she sees me aiming my camera at her, I did what any other mum would do, I bribed her with ice-cream. Yes, indeed, shame on me.
I also shamelessly, used Bob bear (the school mascot), as an excuse, since he is staying with us for a week and we do need to post some photos on his diary of how he spent the week with T.
Does your kids like being photographed?
