{seven year old, picture day, that is not a smile}

Can you see the expression on this one? Whereas big brother is pining for button-down shirts and ties, this one positively lives in t-shirts. His upper body wardrobe consists of precisely two types of clothing- short sleeve tees and long sleeve tees. Needless to say, he wasn't happy this morning when it was time to get dressed and I presented a freshly pressed, long sleeve, button down, collared linen shirt. Oh horror of horrors! He stomped and threatened and left in an angry huff! Oh well, it's picture day and mama's got the last word. ;0)

{addendum: tonight I could not get him to take a shower, so I threatened, "If you do not get in the shower right now, I will get you another long sleeve, button down, collared shirt to wear to school tomorrow!" Man, he was in the shower before I finished my sentence. My husband came upstairs and asked what had I just said, rolling his eyes. Hey, it worked!}

He's such a cutie! Somehow I always goof on picture day and the girls are a mess. Oh well...

Haha..! I think this one is a lot like my little one -- no button-down shirts for him. Or baths, for that matter. :)
