One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to get published. Here it is:
I submitted this photo to a community magazine for their Siblings issue. It didn’t make the cover page but it was selected for the “snapshots” page. It wasn’t quite what I had in mind when I wrote “Get published in 2011” on my resolution list. But if I have nothing written for publication by December 1st, I’ll make it count.
I was pleased it was selected. Jess and Charlie represent not only siblings, but step-siblings and siblings through adoption. They belong in that Sibling issue.
Charlie is a great brother and he spent a lot of time helping Jess on the bike that day. But, as with most boys, they don’t care to be caught doing something nice for a pesky little sister.
To make matters more awkward, he was the lone teenager in a group of photos representing children from infants to 9 year olds. When I asked him how he felt about that he said, “Well, a couple people have asked me about it. I just tell them I was trying to push Jess over.”
Spoken like a true big brother.
