Emotion

You Capture is a weekly photo challenge at I Should Be Folding Laundry. This week's challenge is Emotion.

Last week Sunnyboy had the biggest meltdown of his life, ostensibly because I needed to go to the Post Office but he had a lot of big emotions that needed to be expressed. It was so overwhelming for him that afterwards he fell asleep in my arms, still with his coat and shoes on.





When he woke up Sunnyboy was his usual happy self again and asked me to get the camera to take a picture of him and his baby doll.

  26. James doesn't have many, but I do feel for him when they happen - such big big emotions - they have to come out somewhere. I think if they are allowed to feel these enormous things it strengthens them so much. Look at Sunny boy smiling there - he is so happy.
    Thanks for your comment on my blog. I have a link for you http://www.archive.org/details/SaturdayWithMez
