These are two of my boys.
Aren’t they cute? Don’t they look sweet and lovely and well-mannered and adorable and photogenic?
This is the “image”.
…is the reality of life with boys:
Thing’s aren’t always what they seem!
For example, I saw this van a couple days ago. With the cute family stickers, parked in a parking lot. The image of the “perfect” family.
Until I took a closer look!
What the heck happened to Mom?!?!? Erased by an angry teenager? Removed by a disgruntled Ex? Or maybe that part of the sticker was just defective?!?! We will never know!
In another instance, you know I’ve recently made a pledge not to text and drive. It’s the law and stuff.
The question is….does the law apply to lawn mowers?
This one doesn’t have an image vs. reality, I just like giving my brother in law a hard time!
And finally, my very favorite of the week. We had a cookout last weekend cause my brother in law was moving out. His new job is pretty far away. His girlfriend came over as well, and it was the first time we had all really hung out with her.
You can see for yourself the image of how his Mom felt about it:
In reality, It’s a toy gun that Little Man had left on the chair. When Grandma went to sit down, she picked it up and was just holding it kind of absentmindedly. But it made for a pretty funny photo! You can see the dog is giving The Girlfriend the evil eye as well. I can’t imagine why she didn’t want to hang out with us sooner!
Do you tend to share only the photos that show the “good side”? Have you taken any photos this week where things might not be exactly what they seem?
