pump you up!
How about a view from the back? Do you now see anything wrong with this picture?
Yes, that is Justin's snowsuit that he is wearing as a jacket. And, no, for once he did not do this on purpose to be a funny guy! He had no idea that he wasn't wearing one of his jackets! He was almost out the front door to join his Dad and Brian and I told him that he needed a coat on! This, of course, caused a mini-meltdown and he threw himself on the floor. Mom doesn't play that game, so he got a time-out.
Boy was he mad to have to sit and wait even longer to join in the fun out front. So, when he was allowed to get up, he grabbed a jacket from the closet and was out the door before I could blink. I don't think he was paying attention when he grabbed this out of the closet - he was already outside in his mind before and now he was four minutes late from a time-out! I watched him grab the snowsuit and thought to myself that I didn't remember him having a coat that color. Then I realized what it was and grabbed my camera! I was laughing so hard that I could barely walk and tears were forming in my eyes! I followed him out the door and made sure that Brian and his Dad didn't say anything to make him take it off until I snapped a few photos.
At first he didn't want to pose and then I told him I thought his muscles were getting bigger, so I needed a new picture of his muscles from the front and back. Now he was more than happy to flash me a few smiles! Over the years, I have picked up a thing or two to trick the kids into doing what I want. Telling them that they have huge muscles goes a long way in this house. So does the racing thing. If they don't want to get dressed or clean up etc, I tell them I am timing them and want to see how fast they can do something. It works every time!-well almost every time because nothing is foolproof when kids are involved.
