Every once in a while I get this idea in my head. “I’m going to get a picture of all 3 kids looking and smiling. It won’t be hard, I’ll be fast. It’ll be easy. You would think I learn. And really, I’ve learned to not only live with it, but love the pictures, even if they’re not perfectly posed – I like them because they’re real.
Today I thought it would be easy to get my 3 kids to sit, smile and be happy for pictures in their new Halloween shirts from Nana. Easy? No. Funny? Yes. So to lighten the mood and relieve the pressure off them I just told them to SCREAM.
And then (after a shirt change…one of Ethan’s issues was wearing that new cute Halloween shirt, he doesn’t like to change clothes just because) we made faces.
And don’t you think Ethan looks surprisingly happy for a boy about to be eaten by his mother? I sure do.
