JOURNALING READS: In his twelfth year, Coleman has become a bit of a master of disguise. Okay, maybe master of disguise isn’t the right term, I mean, we can clearly see that it’s him, but still… He loves his fake glasses, his fake moustaches and his ridiculously diverse collection of hats. In fact, for the month of September, Cole vowed to wear a different hat to school every day and he’s tracking his progress in his journal. Maybe it’s just more of his theatrical side coming out. Maybe it’s the Leo in him that thrives on making an entrance. Maybe it’s just good old- fashioned nutty fun. Whatever the case, I hope Cole never loses his taste for the slightly silly. It’s rather infectious, truth be told.
I have a lot of silly pictures of my son.
I'm sure none of you with 6th grade boys can relate.
The camera is not always their friend during this phase of 'tween-dom.
But I absolutely adore the goofy looks this boy offers up.
Just like allowing me to still accompany him to the bus stop, this era will one day just be a remember when you used to do that? time in his life.
Goofy pictures and expressions are some of my favorites all the same. How about you?
P.S. When you look at the word disguise too long, you wonder if it's spelled correctly and then you Google it to double check yourself and then when you realize it is spelled correctly you feel a sense of relief and yet it still looks weird and you will never see the word quite the same way again. Then you realize you need to get a life.
