..and then the war began.


In our family, a major war begins with a simple nudge, an innocent poke or a certain look. The parents planned a family walk through the woods on a nice winter morning. It started off pleasantly, with good cheer but didn’t last. I documented the fight instead of mediating.

Starting the walk, with grumpy faces.

Getting along.

Sibling love. Parents heaving a sigh of relief. The walk was a good idea, after all.

Oh, the smiles.

All in fun...still.

Do I detect a frown?

Ryan is not too sure...

Target Daddy but cracks forming in the wall of solidarity.

Getting serious.

Prior to being pushed into a pricker bush - unintentional.

Being pushed into the above said pricker bush.

Grumpy face 1.

Grumpy face 2 who wouldn't let me take a closer shot.

    Thank you Travel Spirit, for the like.

  2. By shot #3, I would have been saying “Somebody’s going to end up crying.” Because I am my mother.

    I just discovered that:

    1) It’s easier to see other kids fight than your own

    2) Fights are MUCH more tolerable when you can’t hear them!

    Ugh! So true. Just looking at these pictures are so calming now that the moment has passed!

    feeling of deja vu….these days here it starts with a pinch or hair pulling…poor Royina her long hair is now a bane….I loved the picture where Sahana and Ryan are smiling at each other

    Fantastic…the pics are superb…and you should venture into serious writing and publishing. I will send you some links of blogs, start sending them your write ups. And, no don’t give me that “I write only for myself and my kids”. Cheers!
