In the tradition of First-Day-of-School photos, I share with you a scenario you've seen me share in year's past. I'm hoping that I'm not the only one who goes through this. Please, oh please, tell me that your perfect children with their perfect first-day-of-school outfits & perfect first-day-of-school smiles are aliens from another planet?
I now present "First Day of School 2012"...
Me: Time for the annual First-Day-of-School pictures, girls!
Pazely: Me first!!! Make sure you get a close up of my freckles, too, mom.
Me: And that milk on the corner of your mouth?
Pazely: MOM! Not THAT close!!!
Me: Ok, Zoey, you're up next!
Me: How about you relax your jaw a bit? Just give me a natural happy look.
Me: Can I get a close up of you, too, Zoey?
Me: I'll take that as a "NO."
Me: OK! Time for a photo together!!
Me: Just stand a little closer together. And, Zoey, turn off your laser beams.
Me: Ok, let's try one more time. Please.
Me: Zoey, remember what she said about her braids. Let's just step away from her hair for a moment.
Zoey: I will stand here like a rock. You cannot move me. Your pushes are like feathers.
Me: Please, I beg of you. (*wimpering*)
JUST STAND NEXT TO EACH OTHER & SMILE!!!
