When your children grow up they stop letting you take a million cute photos of them.
They moan, refuse to smile, look bored, stick their tongue out, pose for ONE PHOTO AND THAT’S YOUR LOT.
I adore looking back at photos like this; grubby fingers, bit of food in her teeth, shielding the sun from her eyes as I stand on the steps above her and ask ‘can I take a picture, you look lovely?’
The response these days would be: ‘no. If you like how I look then just look’.
So this is a warning to all you parents out there happily snapping away; Make the most of it and enjoy it while you can!
