How Many Pictures Does It Take To Get THE RIGHT ONE?

For my birthday we go to the Nelson Atkins Art Gallery every year.  I love to see how each kid discovers something new they love about the Nelson.  Along the way I try to take a few pictures to remind us of our time.  I realized there seems to be an issue getting a good group photo.

Have you ever wondered how many pictures a parent has to take to get the right one?

First picture.  #6 thinks he can be cute and lay to the side.  #1 is fixing her hair, #2 is smiling weird, #3.5 is telling #4 and #5 to do something.

Second Picture: #5 isn’t smiling his hair is messed up and #4 and #6 are smiling strangely.

The Secret Life of Artists

Sometimes as a mom you get to peek into the lives of you children and it makes your heart happy.  #3.5 is quite the artist.  She draws all the time, and I think she inspires #6 to do the same.  A couple of nights ago #3.5 was sitting at the table drawing, and #6 started drawing with her.

He’s not sure how to sharpen the colored pencil so she’s showing him.

She let him use her phone to draw a sea life.

Not too bad for a 5 year old.

How Do You Know a 3 Year Old Loves his Family?

 I've been taking Christmas pictures of my children since well.. I've had them. The other night #6 brought me an 8 year old Christmas photo and was VERY VERY sad.  You know sobbing with the lip out sad.

I asked him what was wrong, and he told me; "I'm not in this picture. Where am I mommy?"

I did the best I could explaining to a 3 year old where he was 8 years ago, and he demanded that I somehow put him in the picture.

I asked him why he wanted to be in the picture, and you know what that sweet little muffin said?  "I just love my fambly (family) and I want to be with them."  That warms my heart. 🙂

This is #6.  He wants something, and I told him to wait just a second.  This is the look he gives me when he wants something  and it melts my heart.
