Family Pictures - Part 2

Well, it's over.

That's a positive.

I haven't seen the proofs yet, but based on the behavior of both Yoys, there will be nothing salvageable.

Frustration doesn't even begin to describe what I was feeling during the photo shoot.

I'm about 99% sure I was clenching my teeth during our family picture.

Big E would not smile, sit still, etc.  Not stickers.  Not "raisin snacks."  Not Thomas the Train himself could get this kid to cooperate.

Little E was not much better.  Although he is too young to really follow directions, I couldn't even get him to crack a smile.  Not once.  (Am I raising a serial killer?  No, seriously, am I?)

Mr. Yoy and I were jumping around like monkeys.  We made crazy alien noises.  Nothing.  No reaction whatsoever.


So, we called it a day.

Once we mentioned we were leaving, Big E started crying that he wanted to stay and he went and planted himself on the very spot the photographer had asked him to sit like 100x.  He kept yelling "take pictures!  take pictures!"

I literally wanted to walk over there and snap his head right off.  But, I didn't.  I can think it though, can't I?

The photographer assured us she got some good stuff.  I guess time will tell.
Me, post pictures.
