A Sweet Two

Cosme from bCL Photography invited me to participate the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge. I don’t remember what brought me to his blog, but I know I keep following his blog not only because he is a great photographer, but also because he is a wonderful person.

The rules of Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo (It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph) and then nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge. Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command.

I would like to invite Lois at …On Pets and Prisoners… to join the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge. I don’t know how many times after reading Lois’ blog, I have had a smile on my face for a whole day. 😉

Here is my first photo/story…


Last year, while visiting my nephew in Virginia, one day I got up early and washed my hair. As I was about ready to blow-dry my hair, I heard my grandniece crying, so I rushed to her room; my hair was still wet.

“Good morning, Vanessa! Don’t cry. I am here,” I said.

She took a quick look at me with her tearful eyes, and then got out of the bed, walked right past me.

“Where are you going?” I asked.

She didn’t answer. She walked across the hallway, and tried to open a closet.

“What do you need? May I help?”

She ignored me. On her third try, she finally opened the closet door. She then grabbed a bath towel and placed it in my hand.

She was 2 year old.

    Two years old and so cautious of you. She is a darling. I’m glad you got tagged for this challenge, it will be fun to see what you come up with. Lois from …On Pets and Prisoners… is a doll herself. 🙂

    Sometimes, helping makes us forget what we needed help from before.

    Lovely story and photo, Helen! Always enjoy reading your stories. Vanessa is way too sensitive for her age. 🙂

    I absolutely love your photo and story. I will be following you and the challenge. I recently spent three days with my grandchildren and their parents in Pacific Grove, near the Monterey Aquarium. A 5 year old, a 3 year old, and a 4 month old showed me how difficult it is to take photos of children!!
