For the longest time, we've been working with a fashion dummy for displaying Milky Way pieces, so it was with more than a twinge of excitement that we planned for our first ever outdoor photoshoot.
While we were mentally prepared for the various logistical issues that were par for the course, a runaway toddler definitely stretched the limits of what was expected.
The tot in question was my son David who was 15 months old then. He just kept practicing his newfound skill of walking. And so he kept walking away. And away again. Loitering everywhere except where we needed him to be.
Though not a mummy (yet) herself, Shennon sure shows the qualities of a patient and resourceful mummy dealing with a tot that kept running away!
He just kept walking away! It was a good thing David didn't tip over, because right beyond the edge is the deep blue waters of the marina. Looking back, I shudder at the thought of what could have happened.
Picking him up didn't help either.
In the end, there were plenty of photos taken that captured the little boy playing around but not many that could be used for the actual website itself. Ah well.
