The Scrap the Teenz Blog fortnightly inspiration was : What cant they live without? Had fun with this one, Chris is such a techno babe, he even studies computers. I had to laugh when I came to take a picture. There he was, surrounded by the 4 essentials of his life. At the computer, beanie off – headphones on, 2 cellphones! – one telecom- it’s black and hard to see lieing next to the silver vodaphone both within fingers reach. Classic!!!
Check out the other LO’s here.
I’m so glad I joined the scrap the teenz blog! Before I accepted I had a chat with Chris about being the regular ‘ published feature’ of my LO’s and asking wether he’d be ok with it. Knowing I might need his co-operation at times and definetly his consent on things. So wonderful the way it’s turned into an unexpected opportunity and has provided us with another avenue for more sharing and talking. You see a teenagers view of the world is quite different from how the world views teenagers and I’ve learned a lot about that. Chris has always taught me a lot about myself and life in general. He’s one of those intriguing people with a strong sense of self.
Oh my even when he was little. I clearly remember picking him up on his second day of school and he had this ‘you are a star-sticker’ on his black&red striped sweatshirt. As any new to school mum I made a big fuss about it asking what it was for etc. Gosh my mouth almost dropped when he answered in his typical dry way: ” I got all the colours in the rainbow right. But I dont need a sticker for that. I know I know all the colours “. He was not overly impressed by this sticker and well that’s never changed throughout his schooling. He’s never been one to run around pleasing his teachers to gain their approval. Certainly made for some interesting moments;p
Ooops better dash work. Have a great day!
