Monthly Melfie with my 3 boys

Monthly Melfie with my 3 boys

I did it! I actually got a Melfie with all my 3 boys.

This is a rare phenomena as Teenager has photographically disowned me but yesterday I caught him unaware, not long after he woke up (that’ll be about lunchtime if you’re wondering why everyone else is dressed!) My tactic was to give him Baby R to hold, block all available exits and pretend I was taking a snap of our TV, why he didn’t question that baffles me, an I really that random in my photography? Who knows.

The important thing here is that I used stealth,  skill and a little bit of dishonesty to achieve the required result.

my melfie with my 3 boys!

    Lovely photo and I now know just how hard it is to capture teenagers, mine are increasingly taken from behind as they refuse to be on camera now. Your lad is a lovely looking boy, such a shame he is camera shy, though he looks like a lovely big brother.

      He’s a fab big brother, thank you for your lovely comments, I wish he wasn’t so camera shy.
