(Not So) Wordless Wednesday – Fussy Guy

Boy, can I relate to this photo! My son Brendan recently had his very first teeth pop; his two lower incisors both made an appearance last week and he hasn’t really been enjoying the experience. He’s been fussy, crying, and wants to be held more than usual. I doubt this photo of my dad taken around 1953 involves crying over new teeth but his sentiment is the same as Brendan’s – “I’m not a happy camper.” I saw my dad this weekend and he appears to have made a recovery from whatever bothered him while this photo was being taken.

Patrick Lowry [year of birth withheld], Photograph, taken in unknown location, in about 1953; digital image, photocopy of original, scanned in 2013 by Joseph Lowry; privately held by Mary McCaffrey, [address for private use], Canton, Ohio. Child crying in a crib. Provenance is Charles Lowry family to Mary McCaffrey.
