Because truly, if you see the picture of my boys on the first day of kindergarten last week, I should be given a medal. CRAP. I should write a blog post on this. Pseudo blog post: 1. Bribe children with smarties. They are pure sugar so no one is allergic to them. They don’t stain clothes or hands. And you can dole them out one or two at a time for good photos. 2. Go to Target and buy yourself a little stuff dog toy that squeaks. Make him sit on your head. Squeaking = farting. 3. If that fails, tell them something crazy. Like you’re going to throw your sunglasses into the lake. They will be all “No?” and smile because it is so naughty. 4. Very loud cow noises and vomiting noises bring giggles. flesworthy says: August 13, 2011 at 11:54 am You DO need to do a blog post about this! Good tips! Em says: August 11, 2011 at 11:45 pm You are looking extra beautiful, lady! And our whole fam is, too. Em says: August 11, 2011 at 11:46 pm Ooops! I meant, “And your whole fam is, too.” *Ambien’s fault! flesworthy says: August 13, 2011 at 11:53 am You can totally say “our family,” because we consider you part of it! Heather says: August 14, 2011 at 11:35 am Your kids are absolutely precious. I think I love the last shot too– that is HILARIOUS! flesworthy says: August 14, 2011 at 10:50 pm Thanks! I think they’re precious, too. But, you know, I’m biased, so it’s nice to get outside confirmation Regarding the last shot, we have a handful of those “use our uncooperative daughter as a posing prop” shots—they’ll be fun to whip out to embarrass her with in about ten years!
