cry baby

For the past week, I have been making a conscious effort to photograph my son crying. As much as it’s important to photograph him with the biggest smile, I also want to make sure I get the tears. Now, before all the moms and grandmas start shaking their fingers at me, let me say that I’ve photographed him while he cried about something small. For example, my son often cries for “more jish (juice)”, not being able to go outside to watch the trash truck for the 15th time, or when he earns his time out after throwing food on the floor. Cry all you want, kid! Mommy’s not changing her mind!

I’m not sure if it’s the teacher in me, but I’m perfectly fine saying “no” to him and watch him cry. No way in hell we’re calling Super Nanny.

I would be lying if I said he doesn’t look cute in tears. He’s a cutie.

The best part of my son crying? The hug he gives me after he’s done. Oh, and the hiccups that follow. He tries so hard to suck on his two little fingers while hiccupping. Cute. I love him, and I promise you I’m the first one there if he’s ever crying in pain.
