52 Project – a photo a week, every week, of each of my two lads


Joe really makes me laugh when it comes to baths. Maybe I’m wrong but relaxing in a hot bath with lots of bubbles always seems to me quite an adult-woman thing to do… But Joe bloody loves them and will often say, “Oooh I think I’m going to relax in a nice warm bath,” and toddles off to stew in his own juices for half an hour. It definitely involves more soaking than actual washing, but with him being a tween boy I guess I have to just be appreciative that any degree of personal hygiene figures somewhere in his hobby list.


Huey’s had his hair cut! I felt awful cutting it as I do love little boys with long hair and it just feels so sacrilegious taking a pair of scissors to that soft, wispy fluff, but it was getting a bit peculiar, was a crazy assortment of different lengths and he was definitely starting to look semi-feral. So we had most of it chopped off, hopefully now ready to grow longer in a more uniform way! Here he is posing with his new hairdo in the bathroom while his big brother melted all his stresses away in the tub.
