Wow. Look. The Hand. Again.

And again, with the hand. I have dozens of these.

Every year, I take a picture on the first day of school in front of the school's sign. Look how cooperative he is.

Crap. Saw me coming.
It's just not great when we include him in the family pictures, either.

Unless we do it his way.

Don't think for a minute that this is a recent development. Here's the evidence:

But today, TODAY! I got a SMILE!!!!!! a genuine SMILE!!!
Because Luke Skywalker was standing behind me picking his nose just to make him smile.

And just so you don't get the crazy idea that any of the rest of my kids are normal and take lovely pictures, I present Middle Daughter:

And....Thing One.....

...and....Luke Skywalker....

And sadly, even me & Eclair.
