I didn’t feel great all day Thursday, and kept myself inside for most of the day, and then the rain started to come… again.
But I love rainy-blowing weather, and so do my kids, who happened to both be dressed because Daddy took them for donuts this morning, and so I sent them outside and grabbed my good camera.
And what I caught are the best pics yet. Gotta be. Wanna know why?
They both understand me when I say, “If you will do what I ask, I will give you a surprise!” And they did what I asked and they had fun with it too and I did give them Red Velvet Poptarts once it was done so they were pleased and so was I.
And my carefree wild child.
My serious little man, who does not look like a baby in this picture at all and I DO NOT LIKE IT.
Here’s where bribing began.
It got real thick here. “Prizes and surprises! Hug! Hug! Hug!”
And Judah takes after his Uncle Paul. Judah just wants people to know what he’s capable of. I think it’s a message for future Lucy-Suitors. “I may be a little brother… but I care more about her than you know. And I’ll get you.”
And where the bribing took me. Cannot believe they did this willingly for me.
And parents of young children know… that even with bribes, kids will only do what they want to do. I am super blessed that my kiddos love each other and want to make me happy too. Their smiles were genuine. They don’t normally kiss each other, but they do laugh and play together all the time.
And of course I want to show this one. Because I get tired of seeing moms only post the perfect shots. This is what the majority of my pictures looked like. Two little goofy kids making faces and not setting up my shots for me.
I may like it the most.
These pictures took a not so fantastic day and made it a million times better. Just with their sweet little faces.
