What started as a yearly tradition that many of us share, has turned into a photo project for me this year.
On the first day of school, I almost always get a picture of my two boys before they leave the house. This year though, Connor being a “cool” sixteen year old decided he was not going to partake in such a stupid tradition.
As I am sure you can imagine, this did not sit well with me. All I needed was a few seconds of his time, as I was using my iPhone for the shot as we left the house. My insistence for him to cooperate was met with anger, rage and the f-bomb. Through my stubbornness, I got my picture though.
As the day wore on, I decided his attitude was worthy of a lesson. One that would teach him that it really isn’t worth fighting over something as silly as a picture. And, my photo project was born.
In the two short weeks my project has been running, I have endured my fair share of angry boys, and grumpy boys. There have taken to hip checking eacjph other, and the shenanigans they can pull of in a 60 second photo session is impressive. (The 4th shot is my favorite so far…)
I honestly can’t wait to see how this plays out. With the crappy weather not too far away and ever irritable boys, I should be in for some entertainment.
