I did not google this picture.
This train wreck of a studio portrait outing contains my niece and my son. I like to call it "hilariously frightening".
Anywho, I've said it before and I'll say it again:
I'm not really into the school backdrop portraits. It's not my thang. Boys had their school portraits last week, and I just won't fork out the dough since we're at the "little boy's grimace" stage.
You can bet when I walk into their school that there's lotsa loud whispers going on.
"She's the mom who won't pay for school pictures. I hear her house is pretty dirty, too. Tsk."
So there's nothing left to do but try and make up for this lack of professional portrait taking--
and I'm tryin' darned hard. You know what I want?
I want my kids to look at their pictures, years from now, and have a clear idea of what they were doing when they were 8. And 6. And 4. And 2. Respectively.
I want their personalities to be captured somehow.
I want 'em to know how a typical day was. What they were up to.
'Cause I sure as heck can barely remember what it was like when I only had 1 child. Or even two.
Heck, maybe I need the reminder of when my 2 year old wore galoshes every chance she could get.
And ya know, I'm loving this little project of mine. No more "Look at me!" 's. "Smile!" 's.
Just, "Hey-- show me what you're up to."
And they don't mind. Yet.
This is my philosophy, and I'm stickin' to it. Hope I don't regret it.
