S is for Son(s)

Long, long ago, son 1 and son 2 loved to scratch about in sandy soil until they needed scouring, at which they not-so-secretly scowled.
Only slightly spoiled, they seized the moment and enjoyed a certain savoir faire.
They had their sibling spats and spars, but they smiled in sequence and were generally inseparable.
And they sure were sweet... when they were asleep!
The sons, both past 30 now, will snicker at their former selves. Their sibling, a sister, will no doubt snicker as well.

  6. That first photo is a classic!
    And about the Chinese wedding dress thing: that surprised me too. Whenever I've seen a smart Chinese wedding party, the bride is always wearing a big white frock. From what my twentysomething Chinese friends have told me, if a red dress is worn at some point, it will only be to placate a traditional grahdparent.

  8. My two youngest sons were only 16 months apart---so they were almost like twins. I have some of the same pictures of them that you do of yours... TOO CUTE.

    Now mine are 38 and 39... Time Flies.

    Have a great day.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  23. Oh my goodness, Janie, for a moment I thought I was seeing things--the second photo of your sons looks just like one I have of my two boys with the same rocking horse! They're in their thirties, too, so it must have been a popular toy back then:) It's so much fun to look back at photos of our children when they were young and relive all those precious moments. Thank you for sharing!

  31. So much changes, but so much doesn't too. Pictures like that make you think of both.

  32. What a hoot! Don't kids get a kick out of seeing their 'young' selves when they reach about 30 but not so much before? Your narrative and photos are, as always, super!
