Always, the Daddy


I imagine it going this way:

"Susie. Susie, hold still."

"You can go play in the water after I take the picture."

"Susie! Stop moving."

The photographer, who was probably the Mama, sighed. She most likely turned to the Daddy who knew what to do.

He crouched behind me, holding me in place.

"Susie smile at the camera."

Click.

No doubt the Mama sighed when she saw the photo. Oh, well.

Throughout my life, the Daddy always had my back.


Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there!

    1. When the Mama wanted to make sure I got and understood an important message, she had the Daddy convey it. :-)

  3. I have a very similar photograph (actually a slide) that my father took with my mother trying to hide behind me. I was dressed as an elf for a Christmas party at an orphanage and when I got home I did not want my picture taken. I guess we all have our moments. How neat that your Dad always had your back.

    1. It was a creek in Santa Cruz (by the Boardwalk) that flowed into the Pacific Ocean. That was our 4th of July treat for a lot of years.
