When Mom asks for a few pictures for her husband’s office, their wall in the living room, something for Facebook … these are the pictures she wants. The ones where they are all smiling and looking at the camera.
I get that. I do. It’s what I do for a living.
So, Liz. These are for you.
… and the following ones are for me.
It’s the shy ones that always get me. The quiet ones who won’t quite make eye contact like their siblings do, even if I make a joke about farts, snot, bugs, or girls.
But who will give me their million dollar smile when I tell them that we’re done … and you’re the greatest Super Hero I’ve ever met. Thanks for hanging with me.
Yeah, these are the pictures that never make it above the fireplace, but are the ones that always make my heart sing.
