Sad baby? Great photo


Why do parents love taking photos of their children when they're crying? In this one, Jammy looks like he's thinking, Help Me! Help Me! For the love of Pete, can't you see how sad I am, put that camera down and Help Me! But how can you help it? They look so doggone cute.



Oh yes, they do look cute, even though at the time you just want to strangle them. Cute was the last thing on my mind when I snapped this. I was trying to take a photo for our Christmas card and doggedly ignoring their wails. Looking back, I'm glad I kept at it -- looking back.




Of course, when you're a grandparent, you have everything in perspective. You know it will soon pass and you'll be wishing you could bring back those days when they were tiny, screaming babies. So you smile and enjoy them while it lasts, and the louder they cry, the harder you laugh.

Adorable ! all of them ! I had difficulties to find a "sad" picture, no children, no dog available and cats don't look sad, lol !
