Humor Me


‘Humor Me’ is a phrase that has gotten me past many parenting arguments. As both my college age children prepare to leave the nest, I wanted one more picture in front of the tree; the same tree that they stood in front of for each first day of school picture for years. That is until they rebelled and insisted the living room was a better photo op so they couldn’t be seen by any friends passing by. Eventually they got over it and humored me; their old mom, and once again stood in front of the tree.

As families shop for back to school supplies, clothes, backpacks, sneakers and such, the first day of school is upon us. Parents break out the cameras and camcorders ready for those precious first day of school pictures. Don’t focus so much on the photo that you miss the mental picture of the moment. It is priceless.
