It's ironic. If you knew me in person, you would know that I carry my camera everywhere I go. I'm known for taking pictures everywhere. In fact, many of my friends don't even take their camera to school events because they know I'll be there and I'll take pictures of my kids and their kids too.
It's funny how all the children know to smile for Miss Tina. Except for Shane.
He does not like to have his picture taken.
He goes a little nuts and shakes his finger at me.
He will not let me record these precious childhood moments.
Okay maybe I understand Shane not wanting any naked pictures taken, but I cropped out the private parts.
Dave said the pictures don't really show what it's like trying to get a picture of this child, so I videotaped him Thursday night after his bath.
Here is what it's like, in person, live:
I showed him this video and I think it embarrassed him a little. He let me get a picture.
This was after he saw the video.
This was after a chocolate bar.
I guess, I'll have to bribe him with chocolate or embarrass him with the video to get a picture with a smile.
Any suggestions? This has become a problem. The few pictures I get of him smiling is after many pictures of him running from me and fussing at me.
What am I to do? He hasn't always been like this. I have lots of pictures of him when he was younger smiling and happy for the camera. It makes me so sad and frustrated.
Frustrated is often with . . .
the Ferrell boys and me!
Now I feel I must add to this post a little further information. Shane is still not very cooperative when it comes to taking pictures, but we've learned to work around it or just accept whatever picture we get with him in it! All in all it's just a part of his personality that we've come to accept. But it is funny to see these old pictures and video and know that Shane hasn't changed much at all!
