I was taking some ‘first ever trip to the beach’ portraits of Rory, whilst Arlo was playing around next to us with a discarded, broken spade that he had found.
And so it was that I captured Arlo’s split second decision to whip around and donk his unsuspecting brother over the head in the way that siblings do – where they are hurting each other one minute, loving each other the next. Exploring the boundaries of a complex emotional relationship, I guess.
But just LOOK at his face! Look how gleeful he is to be bullying his brother, to have realised that it might be more fun to inflict pain on Rory than to do something constructive with the stick.
Perhaps I should be panicking that I have spawned a sadistic child, but for whatever reason, mainly this photo just makes me smile.
Oh… Yeah. I did stop him before he actually hit him. Should probably mention that.
This month I’m sending you to see the lovely Lauren over at The Real Housewife of Suffolk County. She’ll be sharing a photo of her children from this month, and sending you along to visit someone else. You can follow the circle around to see what all the hosts have been up to.
Have you taken a sibling photo this month? Link it up below!
