The Sabotage Of First Day Photos

by Tina @ Life Without Pink on September 8, 2010

It was the first day of school and I did what every good mom would do; I took a few photos of my son before he headed off for his big day.

And my boys did what boys do best, they made a funny face in every photo just to drive their mom nuts!

Case in point; the little guy thinking he is funny by sticking his tongue out at the last second;

Big A makes it look so painful to smile;

Getting their photo taken with Mom Mom and Poppy and both boys try to be funny once again;

Here is Big A trying to ruin a photo with me;

Now its Little B’s turn;

But finally I was able to get one good photo with my preschooler;

It might be the one and only photo I get with him where he is not making a silly face.

Gotta love boys!

Taking good photos with more than 1 person in it is challenging. When it was just B I was usually able to snap a good shot or two. Now with a family of 5 getting a shot where all of us look good is nearly impossible!

The boys only get worse with their weird faces as they get older, too! I do a yearly calendar with photos of my kids for each month, and I’ve decided to embrace the weird faces and do a whole month that’s nothing but THOSE photos! :)

hope they had a great first day!

Oh, yes. We had a very similar experience yesterday. The pictures I got were hilarious – not a single one had both boys behaving at the same time.

What is it with children, boys in particular, not being able to stand still and look normal for 22 seconds?! ;)

Hilarious! I guess that they, in their own way, wanted to put their own personal “touch” on things. Hahaha.

LOL BOYS!!!!

My oldest gave me dirty looks, like he’s already too cool for first-day pics.

And my middle stuck a finger in the corners of his mouth and pulled it wide and stuck out his tongue in every. single. pic.

Thanks for the comment love! I just spent some quality time at your blog today…it’s a small blogging world :)

I’m smitten by your adorable boys! I have two girls (13 months and 9 months…yes, four months apart…it’s a long story) my hubby and I are already scoping out prospects for them :)

Wait! Was that my kid making those faces in YOUR pictures? “Cause I could have sworn that was my kid!…well, it’s hard to tell when the little gremlins all insist on doing that. It’s the age. I think they outgrow it by, like age, 42…something like that.

These are SOOOOOOO cute! I’m glad you can see the humor in them! It drives me nuts when my boy doesn’t smile at the camera, but runs away instead!

Sister I have to tell you that this is not just boys. Girls do it too, but they have the “cutesy” poses where they think they look like a model, but they really just look like a freak.
