Sunday Pictures: The Difference A Generation Makes

So we’re home sick.  Itty Bit missed his first soccer game, mommy is out of commission, and both grandmas are duking it out too.

In an effort to at least do *something* (other than cough and sniffle) while stuck at home, I raided my picture files to free up some memory.  Which means that this click-happy chick deleted 2,300 photos in one afternoon.  EEK!

I stumbled across these… which sure illustrated the difference between Mommies and Grandmas.



See, the kiddo was being uber-cute… though the same could not be said for my Queen of the Wispies hair day (see why I might feel sorry for the Locks of Love recipient… here’s your public apology).


So I figured he might be content to smile for a few eyes-open shots with Mommy since Grandma was armed with the camera.

Let’s sit in the back of the truck and try a few shots:

Shoe in front of the face, nice touch.



Silly face with double eyebrows… sweet



Even better… “not gonna smile”



Fake smile that looks like Mommy is hurting you.  *sigh*



The famous “underbite and throw yourself backwards” pose…



Giving up!



Hey Mom, gimme the camera for a few seconds and let me try, k?

And instead of smiles being a problem, it’s mommy trying to figure out her prime lens.

See, told you there was a difference between Mommies and Grandmas!  Gotta love ‘em.


Happy Sunday and stay healthy!

Grand parents and grand kids ALWAYS get along better. They have a common enemy. (Love the giving up shot!)

Rachael, thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving the comment about the baby squirrel.

You and your family are so adorable. The picture of your son with his grandmother is priceless.

Nice to meet you.

Amy said...

Hope you are all better soon! Super bummed that he missed his first game by the way :-( I was really excited to hear (or see) about it!!!!

Glad to know it isn't just my kids that does all those "no way will I ever take a decent picture with my mommy" poses. Now Granny works for us.... but Uncle Eric works even better! Kids have so much love it is unbelievable sometimes! When do we lose that???

HeatherOz said...

My kids always behave better for other people than they do for me! Their teachers think I'm crazy when I mention some of their naughtiness!
Itty Bit is hilarious!

Shana said...

Ok, that is so not fair. I love all of the pictures though!! Why do kids do that. That is what Blaze did to that poor photographer too. They are so funny.

Great pics...grandmas always have a little trick up their sleeve to get what they want out of our kids....those bribers!! haha

Foursons said...

Stinker. Hahahahaha. I think your wispys are cute.

Mom of M&Ms said...

Awww I hope that you feel better soon.. We are sharing Strep at our house.

Melissa said...

Wouldn't of noticed the double eyebrow, so funny the things we moms notice! Ya know Grandma may be able to get him to smile easier but Rachel, I can see your tender, tender heart and sweet gentleness in the mommy-n-me photos...your love for him just spews out all over!

Kmama said...

Those are such sweet pictures, even if he wouldn't smile nicely with you!

Emily said...

That's how are pictures go too!! And I am jealous of your hair...oh how I would love a little bit of wave and body in this straight, fine hair! :) Hope you're feeling better.

GunDiva said...
