I have been challenged by Tracie at Life in the Wylde West to the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge. “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph, and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge.”
My son loves me so very much.
I mean look at this picture of us, it’s clear to see how much he loves me!
He loves me so much that we even dress alike!
And we hold hands!
It’s enough love to make a momma cry!
And it’s a lie!
It’s all lies!!!
I’m not kidding, that photo is one big work of non-fiction!
Yes, we were dressed alike, but it was the day of a Cheer fundraiser, and dressing alike is pretty mandatory, all of the parents were in their cheer shirts. It wasn’t just me.
And yes, we are smiling and holding hands – but only because he didn’t want to smile. He was being an I’m-not-going-to-smile-in-this-picture teenager, and well, my hair looked too good for him to not smile!
So, I started tickling him.
He in turn, grabbed my hand to hold it still and his girlfriend timed it perfectly when she hit the shutter button!
Just remember this next time you see a picture on Facebook, what looks like a loving family could turn out to be a pack of lies! 🙂
