It took about 5 rounds of persuasion to get the teen to take this photo and absolutely no way he was going to be in it.

We also had to do the briefest of poses because he’d only take 1 shot. Taken on Christmas Day 2018. Took another 9 days for him to get round to send me the picture, despite asking daily. Teen parenting - who’s got that down? Not us two, despite the smiles - although I do find smiling through it helps! Oh and the beach and a glass of fizz comes in handy too. 😉 I can also hugely recommend @nicolamorganauthor book #blamemybrain for some very clever insight into the actual science of what is going on inside a teenage brain. Helps when, for the life of you, you can’t understand why they don’t want to pose with you in your sparkly cossie and your Wham t-shirt on Christmas Day! ! 😂
