Yesterday Ruth sent a pic of Annie of a child fighting the picture process. I love this kid
It reminded me of my attempt to 3 year old pictures of MJM. If I ever wanted to disown (or dismember) a child it was then. She practiced and practiced before we got to Wal-Mart. then we get there and she wouldn't if go in front of the camera. This young unprepared mother even stepped in to get her to smile/get in front of darn scary camera.
Then bribed her (please note that there is a fine line between tears/freakout and let me try to smile)
I was so mad that I left Walk-Mart without the pictures and went home for naps. Once home, I called her Aunt Tami who went to Wal-Mart to purchase the pictures unaware to me. When we woke up from naps the packet was sitting on my doorstep. With sleep (and now with years) behind us, I laughed. Laughing again now, and loving Annie even more!
