For today’s Throwback Thursday, I’m going to share a photo that always brings a smile to my face. As a professional photographer, I always get a kick out of those Facebook posts where adult siblings have recreated their childhood photos into a calendar for their parents (such as in the following links):
I always wish (out loud) that my kids would be inspired to do the same for me, but alas, they just aren’t that thoughtful. *SIGH*
Anyway, one of my favorite photos of my son when he was little was one Easter morning when the Easter Bunny brought him a straw that was in the shape of eye glasses. About ten years later, the Easter Bunny found a similar straw, and I was able to get the same photo again. Now I can love it twice as much. I hope the Easter Bunny is able to find this straw again by the time Jeremy nears the end of his twenties. (Now, if only I can get my kids together to pose for eleven more photos, I can finally have that damn calendar!)
Time to talk: Have you ever recreated a childhood photo? Have you ever made your kids recreate a childhood photo? Would you, too, love a calendar of recreated photos from your children’s youth?
