Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

Photo Problems: Solved!

Who is that handsome young Thor in bubble wrap armor? Why yes, it is Sweet Boy#2. The same boy who previously refused to pose for photographs. Yes, a photo solution has been discovered.

If homemade armor is involved, then young men are not opposed to a photograph or two. Now you have it, Moms! Just drag out all that old bubble wrap come portrait time and your young warrior will be ready and willing to be involved in snapshots. Of, course … if you were wanting portraits that did not involve armor of any kind whatsoever … I’m afraid that you are out of luck.

You will be forced to try my “chicken solution.” First, hand your young model a live chicken and then take several photos while they are distracted. This also works with goats and puppies.

And yes, you’re welcome. I realize that my advice has probably changed all of your lives and that you will now be carrying bubble wrap or a live chicken with you on every family outing.

Photographic Proficiency, here we come!


I promise you a crazed animal, a concussion, and a kiss in every single book...you're welcome!
