Way back when I was a little tyke, well not that far back, don’t wanna age myself more than I need to, my mom started the tradition of taking my photo in front of the maple tree we planted in our front yard. I can remember as my sister and I got older we kind of put up a stink about having it done each year.
Well, now that I am a mom I get to make a stink of having my kiddos stop and take a picture with the tree each year.
Is it any surprise than that this year I had to carry on the tradition of
torturing taking my kiddos picture in front of the still growing maple tree of yesteryear. I was lucky that there were still leaves left on the old thing since the week before was full of strong winds and heavy rains, good ol’ tree knew I was coming to take his picture and didn’t want to be presented to the world all bare and naked.
Since Little Miss can’t stand on her own yet and I didn’t want get her tushy all wet from the growing pile of leaves, the hubster
grudgingly willingly helped out by holding the little peanut for her first “tree pictures.” He is kind of awesome like that.
Then we threw Padawan in front of the camera for a couple with dad and sister
and then one on his own.
How about you guys, do you have family traditions that your parents started with you that you care on/hope to carry on with your kiddos? What about new traditions that you would like to start?
