iHeartFaces : Nostalgia

Toothy smile

Today at iHeartFaces the theme requires participants to post a picture that would bring a nostalgic feeling. I initially thought of posting my grandmother’s picture with her siblings beside her, but I’ve changed my mind because the old photo made me really sad. I miss my granny so much. She passed away when my kids were little. I don’t wanna cry so I look for another picture and my search lead me to this cute photo of my kids – Naomi and Khalil, taken about four or five years ago.

I instructed them to pose and give me their best smile. They wouldn’t follow. They would make faces and laugh all the time. You know how I get them to stay still and ‘smile’ for me? I promise to give them chocolates. So this picture was the product of that little bribery. Now I’m sharing a secret behind their toothy smile.

I consider this as one of my favorite pictures. I definitely miss the time when they were younger and shower Mommy with lotsa hugs and kisses. Today, I still get kisses from them, but not as much like before. But I still get to hear them say ‘I love you, Mommy’ before they go to sleep.

    @Shie sis we had so much fun doing that simple shot. They were uncooperative at first, but when they see my face slowly turning red hehe, they finally give in. lol

    @Chris you will really miss that moment when you kids are a little older. I hope your kids won’t change showering you with plenty of hugs. 🙂
