My kids love the end-of-year holidaze. They spend eleven months looking forward to the celebrations, excitement, gift-receiving and general merriment. Can you blame them?
When they are little they tolerate the pop of flash bulbs that document the year-end joy. But… things do change. As they grow older they snarl and spit “point that camera somewhere else!” Can you blame them?
I managed to get two of my (adult) kids to sit still for my camera a few years ago. There was joy and merriment and the twinkle of tree lights and the twinkle of eyes reverting back to a being a little kid at year end.
May all your holidays be filled with twinkle!
