It’s time again for my annual family photo and I’m so happy that this year the lovely Yvonne will be taking our picture.
She’s already given me GREAT advice about what to wear, bring, etc.
The trick, as always, is getting my boys there.
The first time I did this to them they gave me a hard time about it.
The second time went smoother.
And this time, I think it’ll be even easier.
In true motherly fashion, I have GUILT TRIPPED my boys into taking the photo.
I reminded them: MOTHER’S DAY IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER. . .
Truth be told, I wish my boys were a little more helpful and participatory when it comes to helping out and doing things.
This past weekend, Yvonne held a party for her late husband and close to 60 people showed up to remember him fondly.
Yvonne is also mother to two boys and they showed up and helped out and were basically incredible.
It made me a little wistful thinking of my own boys.
Hopefully they will mature into men who are more helpful and supportive. Hopefully I’ve laid the right groundwork and it’s just a matter of time until I see them mature into the fine young men I know they can be.
But for now it’s all about video games, and cars, and animals, and avoiding me.
So here are the outfits my boys and I are wearing for our photoshoot – pastel green, blues, and purples for us. Should be BEAUTIFUL!
We’re going to Natural Bridges in Santa Cruz to take our photos.
