Boys and Girls

I seem to make more pages using my daughter's pictures than my son's. Whenever I can I prefer to use pictures of them both, but my daughter just seems to be more obliging when I want to take pictures. My son on the other hand seems to be rather uncomfortable in front of the camera. Guess I need to take more pictures of him to get him over his aversion.

I find it interesting, the difference in raising sons and daughters. At least in my case, my worries for each child are completely different and neither one is easy. No one ever told me raising kids would be easy, but they all failed to tell me it could be this hard. And I've only just entered the realm of teenagerhood.

Anyhoo, without too much detail, here are my pages for the past few weeks. Oh the adventures of parenting. If you want to delve into my journaling, all of these can be found in my TDC Gallery.

And speaking of adventure, I used to be quite bold and daring. Before getting married I even took a 2-month solo journey through Indonesia and Thailand. You'd think I would have made more pages with all those photos by now, but just haven't. Seems like a lifetime ago...

I can so relate to the "seems like a lifetime ago" comment about your adventures... I feel the same about my 1 month solo trip in Malaysia.

I don't know why boys (and teenage ones especially) are usually more shy from camera. But you make gorgeous pix even though he isn't as cooperative as your daughter. And I'm not even mentioning your pages, which are absolutely perfect! <3
