During the recent cold weather here in North Alabama, my husband and I had fun (he might debate that!) trying to create bubbles that would land on the ground and freeze, enabling me to photograph them. Instead, our bubbles floated away, making it very difficult to take pictures of them! The one above was one of the few that I captured that contained a reflection, which is what I really wanted to get.
Have you noticed how much little boys often reflect what they have seen in their dads? My daughter told me a few months back that her four-year-old had decided he didn't need to sleep in a pajama shirt anymore--he had noticed that his dad didn't, and, therefore, he concluded that he didn't need to either. (Never mind that it was winter and nights were cold!)
I had my own opportunity to observe this desire to imitate or reflect something of his dad recently when they were at our house for Sunday lunch following church. Jack had on his oxford button-down when he arrived, but I noticed when he sat down to eat that he was shirtless! His dad always takes off his outer shirt prior to eating our typical Sunday spaghetti meal and hangs it on a chair. There, in the dining room, was Jack's Sunday shirt hanging beside his dad's.
I love that Jack wants to be like his dad! And, because I'm always taking his picture, I often see just how much he looks like his dad! Someday, these photographs will remind his parents of these sweet times when a boy wanted to be just like his dad.
