We faked it


It’s the new year, and I probably should be writing about fresh starts and whatnot. Instead, I’m going to tell you that we faked Christmas pictures this morning. We woke up, put on our holiday pajamas we wore on Christmas morning, and we faked photos. See, we were so in the moment on the 25th that we totally forgot. I’m not sure how we managed to forget, but we did. And I was so, so upset about it – the baby’s first holiday and I didn’t have any photographic evidence of it.

I voiced my frustration online, and several friends told me they’ve done the exact same thing. They’ve just been so busy and overwhelmed with things going on – kids begging to open presents and such – that they totally forgot. I’m not alone, at least, which really does happen to make me feel better.

So we faked them. I’m told that in 15 years I won’t even remember we faked them, but I feel like I’ll still know. I know ultimately it won’t matter, though – I won’t be focused on the fact that we faked them, and I’ll instead be looking at how tiny and sweet my boy is here.

  1. Happy New Year to you and your family. How clever of you to do that! I think it’s perfectly fine to “fake” the photos. Just keep in mind that you were truly enjoying the moment with your baby and that moment will always be in your heart. Plus you’ll have a great story to tell in years to come.

    1. Thanks, Susan! It will definitely be a great story one day. As it is, when I’ve told coworkers what we did, they all laughed :)

      1. Happy New Year to you and your family!
        I think it’s better to be busy celebrating and enjoying so much that you forget to take pictures, rather than be ready with your camera and miss part of the party! :)
