Inspired by Norman Rockwell - yes!

[Sep. 10th, 2013 03:51:51 AM]

So I said to my son, "son, dress like a nerd, and put your fathers old glasses on, and comb your hair flat, and help me find some old looking books" and like the good kid that Luke is he did it. At first he didn't want to put the glasses on, but I gently persuaded him to do so, in order to get that whole nerdy thing going on. I think he did a good job, I never have to persuade him to read though!

Thanks for all those who stopped by, left a comment and a good vote... bye for now, off to Europe today so if it does well it will be a great going away pressie for me.

I was going to do the same thing, except with my kid asleep on his homework, and the books stacked on one side so you could see the spines and the classes.

But I like your processing much better than mine!! I'm glad my son went to bed early. Mine shot would have flopped in comparison. :)
