The things parents do to torture their children!
Today we were doing our grocery shopping and they had the easter bunny out to take pictures (for free!!) with the kids. So I convinced my 3.5 year old son to sit with the easter bunny. This is the response I get. I LOVE it though. Because that's totally him! If he's not interested he'll let ya know and he surely did!

It's bad enough sitting next to Santa for a picture when all you want to do is go to the mall and play with toys in the toystore and get an ice cream but the easter bunny too? THat's what that look says to me. Well, at least that's what my kid says to me when he has that look in pictures. Although we never did do the easter bunny. Just Santa.

That is priceless! Someday you can use it for blackmail.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

That's wonderful!!!!

'The things parents do' is a great title, also. It's our job to get expressions like that on their faces.

I have no pictures of my kids with Santa or the Easter Bunny. They would get all excited and we would go to the mall and the second they actually saw Santa or EB they would run screaming in terror. They were like that with any costumed character. Nick Jr. characters would come to town and the kids just *had* to go see them - from a very far safe distance. It wasn't until we went to Disney World the first time and my oldest (then 4 yo) saw Goofy that the fear of large costumed characters finally left (a bit) but they still wouldn't sit with Santa or EB. Only Disney characters. My mo always asked me why I just didn't force them. Riiiight, the memories I want to have captured on film are those of my screaming children injuring costumed people in order to get away from them.

This is priceless though because it really shows his attitude and he looks more disgruntled than scared out of his wits!
