I am usually all over sending out Christmas cards. This year, I got nothing! I have totally lost all track of time (with children, a Aron, a dog, and a whole buncha other things)! So, last night, I thought, oh I can definitely take a sweet picture of my children in front of the Christmas tree....... HA! Who am I kidding!!
This photo was the start of what I was thinking would be the most precious photo shoot.... NOT!!
Me: Sophia sit by your brother and smile
Sophia interpretation: Squeeze my brother tightly with a one armed choke hold!
Brayden's interpretation: Get away from my sister!
Me: Sophia, stop loving your brother so tightly. Be gentle. Be sweet.
Sophia hears: Okay Mama, read.
Brother wants: Brown Bear
Me: Sophia put the book down. Brayden put your book down for mama!
Sophia hears:...........I think she is blocking me out
Brayden wants: not to be in the picture anymore.
Me: Hey, looky looky, snap snap, up here, looka mama, here, hey, cookie, cookie
Me: I try to take the books away.
Sophia: Sophia book, mommy nothing
Brayden: getting ready to reach for his book.
Me: I cannot see your faces. Show Mama your teeth. Smile.
Children:....... now eating the books.
Me: One more please
Children: immediate response.
Children: back to the books
Me: Okay, this is really the last one.
Sophia starts taking off shoes.
This is going no where!
And, we're done.
Tomorrow, we will have another photo shoot. Hope it has better results!
Merry Christmas from the Foresee's!
