Look Up, Look Down


..with Helena's clever weekly series. I've got one today that's a little bit of a cheat. Little bit. It's a two-in-one, a look up look down combination...


At the weekend we were looking at some photos we had just taken with our friends from San Diego.

Am I really that much bigger than everyone else? The Tall One asked

Oho, yes, said his Dad. Stand beside your mother and I'll prove it

So he did and we took this picture and today it's my Look Up, look Down with a twist. Twist? Did somebody say twist? If I stand like this for much longer, I'll end up with what round here we call a "crick" in my neck.. 

Many thanks to all the Storytellers this month (and hello to the newcomers!) There is still time to add yours to the Storytelling Sunday collection. The linky is open until the end of the week right here 

and  you can read more about Storytelling Sunday in the latest issue of Jot magazine, which is free and ready to be enjoyed right here. I was delighted to see my lovely blogging friend Abi in there too this time round. Check it out!

He definitely earns his moniker :) Lovely to see you both tho'!

Jo said...

I don't think it's a bit of a cheat at all, I think it's a great photo x

Fiona@Staring at the Sea said...

Your photo really made me smile, this sunny morning Sian :o)

Cheri said...

All my children are taller than me - but nothing like that! Maybe you just need a fluffier hair-do?

Ruth said...

Love that photo! Has TTO had a smallish haircut; he's looking a little less wild?!

Sue Althouse said...

Lovely photo and a great twist on look up, look down. I remember when our son began looking down on me. He loved that!

Deb @ Paper Turtle said...

Such a clever photo for the up/down meme, Sian! I'm off to check out Jot...

Carmen said...

Wow that is a fantastic photo Sian :D Definitely suits his name :)

Barbara Eads said...

So, I'm guessing that your tall one is 6'4" or else you are 5'. Reminds me of my grandson and me. I'm waiting for the doctor's report---I'm saying 6'4" for him too.
Great photo!

Jennifer Shaw said...

Love that photo! Yes, he looks pretty tall.

JO SOWERBY said...

He is impressively tall and handsome,

He has some impressive height!

Alison said...

Your TTO really IS tall...great take on LOOK UP LOOK DOWN!....I am getting really frustrated, because no matter what I try I haven't been able to download JOT!!

I'm waiting to get a bit of time to sit down with JOt. I think this week's photo of JJ felt a bit of a cheat because although I was looking up at her, the photo was taken (technically) from above. Although I think it sill has a bit of a looking up perspective. And I really liked my pair, so I left it.

Nathalie said...

Just like Maria, I am reserving some me time to savor this new issue... Congrats on being featured!
Where did your boy get his genes? From his dad?
:D

Abi said...

Gosh he is very very tall! Congratulations on your jot article. I loved reading it and your advice on starting a linky party.

Amy said...

Nah, no cheating ... you're looking up and he's looking down ... fits the bill if you ask me!

Ladkyis said...

My youngest son says he is 6'5" but we have his pencil mark on the wall and it measures 6'7" even allowing for error that is still 1'6" taller than me so I know how your neck feels. My other son is only 6' and my daughter a mere 5'6". They get their tall genes from their father and from my Dad's side of the family.
Being the shortest is something I have grown (hehehe) used to over the years.
I intend spending tomorrow morning reading Jot

Karen said...

Frankly, this is the best Look Up, Look Down of all! It probably is a cheat, but it's wonderful. I've already started enjoying Jot, but it's going to take a bit to get through it. Lots of good stuff!

helena said...

great twist and makes me smile - I have some very tall cousins who make me feel just like that

Sheena said...

I don't think it's a cheat ;) but where did he get those genes ??
I'm loving this new copy of Jot & even more pleased that I've got some work in it :D

S said...

There's the proof. I'll have to run and get my Nook to download the newsest Jot. Can't wait to see what it holds.

Sinead said...

This is a great Look Up Look Down photo, I love it! He really is quite tall :D Congrats on your Jot article, I really enjoyed reading it. x

Louise said...

haha!! love your twist. He sure is tall!! I've not had a change to join in yet with STS or read all the stories...I do hope to get around to it...still need to read Jot too x

Melissa said...

What a fabulous photo for Look Up Look Down! Yes, do be careful or you'll have a crick in the neck for sure!

Becky said...

Great photo! Also love your article in Jot :)

Sandra said...

Lol ... What a fabulous photo

Beverly said...

I think this is the most awesome "look Up, Look Down" photo I have ever seen! Funny, we say a "crick in the neck" here, too.

Lisa-Jane said...

That is a superb picture Sian! Definitely one for the scrap books. How could he not know that he was so much taller than everyone!

alexa said...

Brilliant photo for scrapbooking - and I am sure you will both smile at this in years to come. I was trying to remember the height of TSO - has she overtaken you yet?

Sian said...

Oh, yes she has :) by a couple of inches..

tidbitsandtreasures2011 said...

You will simply have to continue reminding him that you are the mom and that status trumps his height any day. Terrific photo; perfect for the challenge!
