My Son Is Not Amused


I have difficulty taking pictures, especially with my phone.  I have tremors, and the harder I try to hold still, the more I tremble, and the blurrier the photo.  So I take about 47 pictures for every one that looks fairly decent.  Unfortunately, my son's patience lasts about 35 pictures.  Then I get "The Look". 

I can't be too upset with the boy over this expression, because he got it from me.  I think that I would spend a good chunk of my day with this expression on my face, if I were independently wealthy and didn't need gainful employment.  And who could blame any child for getting this expression after having to sit through 47 attempts at a picture for his mother, just so she has something to blog about on November 1st? 

This look is but a taste of what the teen years will be like, I've heard.  I may need professional help.

    1. Lol. More like, "Moooom! You're taking too long and I've moved on."

  2. I like the bit about having to control "the look" in order to stay employed. I don't have a poker face, so I struggle to keep myself in check sometimes.
    Happy NaBloPoMo!

  4. He's got my attitude, that's for sure! I'm in for a ride when he turns 13, if not sooner.

  7. My son has mastered that look! He's only 5, so I can assume that it doesn't get better??
