Fair Warning

Instead of charming, face-front photos of Bear, you're going to be seeing a whole lot more of this style:

We're starting to get some of that stuff too.

*sigh*

I'm sure they'll smile again at some point.

Pleaseeeeeee, tell me the heart tattoo on the right ankle is the, temporary, washable kind??????? Otherwise, great picture and good luck through the pre-teen years. "Sigh :-("

Rest assured, Grandma - it's just a kiddie tattoo. Washes off in a week or so! :)

Cute! I am not looking forward to that. Loved your last post. Too funny. Bribery is a great thing!

You went through the same stage - no smiles. People used to ask me if something was wrong.

Cute tattoo on Bear's ankle! I figured she'd be getting interested in those washable tattoos soon - they'e all the rage with junior and senior high kids around here.

I have about 4 years worth of those kind of pictures. Now she'll pose every time I aim the camera at her (and she's 23! lol).

Danger Boy is the worst--he's 16 and I think he's been in that phase since he was 7.

He has promised me one solo, smiling photo this summer.
