ME: "Ok girls. This is our 'First-Day-of-School' picture! Smile! Look alive!.....Pazely, maybe a little less squinting."ZOEY: "CHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE......."
|ME: "That's better Pazely. But not really. Nevermind. By the way, your socks are all funky. I'm not sure what you were going for, but they're uneven."|
|PAZELY: "Mom! Just take the picture!"|
ZOEY: "Get the lunchbox in the picture mom! Did you get the lunchbox?"
ME: "Yes, I got the lunchbox Zoey.....OK, how about I get some photos of Zoey by herself first?"
|(Pazely stands like a statue. An immovable sculpture. A giant boulder, not about to budge. Stationary.)|
ME: "Alright, we'll let Pazely go first."
|ME: "Pazely, you're arching your back---just relax your shoulders."|
|ZOEY: "Step aside Pazely! Exit stage right immediately."|
|PAZELY: "Warning: Diva has entered the room."|
|ZOEY: "Pazely! MOVE! You're in the waaaaaay!!!"|
(Pazely walks away singing: ♫"I'm too sexy for this backpack... ♫ too sexy for this backpack..."♫)
|ZOEY: "Here's my first pose. Casual. Confident. Relaxed & ready for a 2nd grade education...."|
|ZOEY: "And now I'm giddy. Silly. How about I kick up my right foot in the back & lean over for a little 2nd grade *Squeeee!*"|
|ZOEY: "And now I'm about to change poses. Still smiling. Still cute. Next I think I'll...."|
|ZOEY: (**GROWLS!!!!!!!**) "Pazely! You're in my shot! You're head is taking up the whole frame! Get! Out! Of! The! Waaaaaaay!!!! MOM! Make her move! She's ruining EVERYTHING!"|
|ZOEY: ( **Pouts**)|
PAZELY: "I am done with this. I'm going inside to pull up my other sock."
|ZOEY: (**Quickly flips head toward camera.**) ♫"Cheeeeeeeeeeese!!!"♫|
|This pose says: Homework? For reals? You wouldn't do that to me would you?|
|This pose says the same thing. Only on the other side.|
|This pose oozes: I'm sweet. I'm adorable. And yes, you can give me 2nd's on that cafeteria dessert.|
|I'm swinging my lunchbox from side to side, I'm swinging, swinging.....|
|ZOEY: "Get the lunch box mom. K?"|
ME: (rolls eyes) "Got it."
|ME: "What now, Zoey?"|
ZOEY: "I'm smiling while, at the same time, planning my next pose..."
|BOTH GIRLS: "One...two...three...First day of school! Yippee"|
