Anyway my plan is to try and get the kids' picture taken at the mall. (Free and cheap attractions there include a pet store with snakes, a glass elevator, a soft pretzel place, a fountain, a kids' play area, and some little rides - not to mention the stores for me!) I picked out some cute outfits for the boys and threw them in the dryer with a wet towel to dewrinkle. (Works great!) The baby is wearing his now.
My older son? He opted for wrinkled shorts from his drawer - "These are better, because they don't have buttons!" - and a tie-dyed T-shirt.
- Will I be able to talk him into wearing the more portrait-friendly outfit after school?
- Will the baby's face remain free of the mysterious red bumps he had earlier in the week?
- Will I be up for the trip by this afternoon when I'm already feeling like it's nap time at 9:30 in the morning?
