How stinking sweet is this outfit??
As I headed home from work yesterday all I could think about was how perfect it was that the sun was still blazing bright. I feel like I go to work and come home in the dark. I am so ready for the long summer days! Anyway…what I didn’t estimate was the length of time it would take to dress a 2 year old and do her hair versus the amount of time I had before the sun actually went down. So we raced about the house trying to keep her focused (girlfriend is easily distracted by shiny objects) then headed outside for a little photo shoot. She likes to do her own thing which usually includes just running away from me or hiding behind a bush. I have no idea why she thinks this would make for a good shoot. So I didn’t have a choice. As she headed off for the trees, I stooped low and bribed her with M&Ms. I’m not proud, but it worked. Anything for a shot right?!
As a side note- I originally bought the M&Ms for potty training. I’m not a fan of supplying my kids with loads of sugar, they’re crazy enough on their own, but when you have a goal in mind and they try to stray you have to do what you have to do, am I right? So anyway, I tell her during this mini shoot that if she takes a nice picture I will give her an M&M. Her response: “ok, but no potty.” Sure babe, no potty (this time), just pictures.
