My little man has a very bad habit - he kicks stuff. I mean, not just your regular soccer ball kicking, he cant help but kick everything in his path.
Walking past a tree? Gotta kick it.
A big rock right beside you? Kick it.
Standing next to the lounge? Kick it.
Nothing but gravel on the path? Kick it everywhere and drag your shoes through it too for good measure...
*Big Sigh* Apparently his daddy was a bit like this as a kid too.
With all this kicking, he's gone through 3 pairs of school shoes in a year. Toe blow-outs, sole blow-outs, or velcro failure... The first pair were leather and supposedly harder wearing (scoff) but after we only just made it through a term with those, I switched to a cheap K-mart pair for $8. They also only lasted a term, but at least I was only out of pocket $8!! I went back to a slighter dearer pair of Grosby's... you guessed it - just over a term before his socks were hanging out the sides... AAARRGGH!!!!
I have threatened that the next pair of shoes will come out of his tooth-fairy money if he doesn't stop this!!
Apart from tying his legs together... and more threats that he must stop kicking everything... what can I do??!!!!
I recently had the pleasure of meeting gorgeous little Hunter in his Newborn Portrait Session - we did this session in the comfort of his own home - meaning the older kids could come and go as they wanted, and mum Kristine could relax in her own lounge room!
This handsome little man was just 13 days old on the day of his session, and he slept like a dream. A couple of lovely big yawns and a few extra cute smiles were captured! I love his cute "name" sign too :)
Thanks so much Kristine, I loved creating these special memories of your cute little guy!
