Monday, 13 June 2011, Day 202/365.
Sometimes I get to the end of the day and realise I haven’t done my photo for the day.
I was scratching around for an idea this particular day and my son said that I could take a photo of him if I wanted to.
He is so photogenic so why not.
A couple of days prior we’d been to a party where he was the only child. He was so well behaved and so grown up and made a great impression on the other guests.
On the way home – about 8.30pm – he fell asleep in the car and when we got home I realised he hadn’t had a shower for a few days. With various commitments that week it just hadn’t happened. A big argument ensued where he refused to have one. I ended up taking his favourite things to do in the morning away from him because he’d refused to have a shower. He then went off to have it but I didn’t back down on the punishment.
I felt a bit mean because I knew he was tired but a shower doesn’t take long and I really felt he needed it. And guess what? He was as good as gold the next day.
