So you heard this blog is about unhappy children and you still visited anyway? Okay, great, then you and I will get along fine. If you’re anything like me, you’d rather reach for your point-and-shoot digicam before rushing to retrieve Bactine and a BandAid when your toddler gets knocked into a gutter by a 112-lb Golden Retriever. When a larger-than-life character mascot approaches your screaming kid in a never-been-washed fur suit, do you embrace her in a hug or merely extract her tightly clutched arms from around your legs to get a better angle on the shot? You know that kind of emotion is primal and best perserved on an SD card, right?
Over the years, it seems I’ve collected a range of photos showing my children clearly articulating – through screams and tears – unhappy emotions. When I look back at the photos, I can’t help but smile, thinking — aww, how cute!
The only problem is I have never known what to do with these photos… it’s not like I can add them to the baby books or tuck one into the annual holiday newsletter. So, I choose to share them with you and invite you to share your own gems, too!
