My Sunday photo – Father and son bonding

My Sunday photo this week is again not a photographic masterpiece, but it’s a very special moment that me and my son shared yesterday afternoon.

I picked this photo in particular because over the last few months due to the nature and position of my illness I’ve not been able to hold my children very often due to the pain it causes. Especially Arran who is normally a little wriggler and likes to kick and scratch me.


But yesterday he was so tired and desperate for a nap, so I asked for a quick cuddle before Mum was going to put him down for his nap. However, much to my complete and utter delight, he was so tired that he instantly fell asleep on me. It was my version of contentment, I just wish I could do it more often.

As always, thanks for reading.

This real life Dad and my sleepy son Arran xx
