I got the boys all posed for their first day of school picture this morning.
Me: Come on, boys, smile! What is this—the first day of school or a funeral?
Me: Well, if that’s how you’re going to be then go ahead and frown. I can still get a good picture.
Me: Are you forgetting that one of you gets to stay home and bake chocolate chip cookies with me?
Sigh. I guess that’s what I get for waking them up an extra half hour early to get the *perfect* back-to-school picture because I can’t just take one picture on my phone and call it good enough. Have I ever called anything I’ve done “good enough” before?
I got the older boys to come close to almost smiling, or at least almost thinking about almost smiling, for one shot.
They’re actually all excited to go back to school; I think that just is their happy face.
But wait—no! These are their happy faces!
Me: How about one last chance at a group shot?
