i tell my boys quite frequently: there will BE no grousing in your late teens about how we have a paltry two photographs of you and roughly thirty-eight million of your sister, and how your therapist agrees that this is clearly indicative of Favoritism And General Injustice and as such, any and all misery or woe you sustain in life will have this early grievance at its root.
the reality here is that when i bust out my camera (or, okay, sometimes i'm wearing it already), my older three dive for cover while the youngest cheerfully humors me.
clearly a case of It's Not My Fault, right?

and to atone for the fact that i only have one face to share here, i've processed this image several different ways. i always marvel at how variation in coloring can alter the mood of a photograph.
i really do have four children. i promise.
