This week, we welcome special guest blogger, Jami Davis.
It never occurred to me that boys could be so wickedly awesome. Coming from a family of ALL girls, I had my heart set on rearing a mini-me. That’s what I was comfortable with. I mean, what does one do with boys, anyways? Do they tinker with cars? Hunt small animals? Do they shoot ‘em up? Pick their noses all while belching the ABC’s? I just couldn’t foresee a life without curly locks and fancy frocks, let alone manners!
Then it happened. He arrived on a blustery day, two weeks late, and more than I could have hoped for. The boy of my dreams came equipped with a chivalrous heart, a prudent spirit and a love for his family that won’t be rivaled. He talks with his mouth full, pees on the seat and drives his sister crazy. Do I love every minute of it? Yes. Yes, I do.
I have but 9 short years left with this boy who will someday talk politics rather than legos, who will prefer the company of another woman to his mother, who will one day teach his boy to skip rocks and armpit fart. Yes, I said it. It’s what they do and we love them for it anyways.
It was such an honor for me to join the crew of The Good Ones to capture “behind the scenes” footage of their Austin photo shoot. Peeking in on this world of boys doin’ their thing made me proud to think of who they will become and what they have to offer this world. They pretty much “rocked” it all weekend and after meeting their parents, I can see why!
I hope you enjoy this glimpse into a Good Ones shoot. I know I did!
