I was hit with “giddy mommy brain.” It is what I like to refer to when I have these great, mushy ideas that I later realize to have been completely impractical.
I just needed one good picture for a Christmas card. Just one. It could not be so hard, right? I am not a professional, but my goal wasn’t perfection, simply two smiling kiddos. Oh, how happy all my family would be to find a postcard from my two little munchkins, happily smiling by the Christmas tree!
And so we began. . .
This is Boston attempting to hug her uncooperative brother in order to gain her candy bribe.
This is her face when I asked her to pleeeease try one more time.
And now here I am foolishly attempting to gain their attention while sugar is involved.
Yeah, nice try mom.
My final solution: make a complete fool out of myself in public (I tried taking these by the tree in our lobby) in order to gain giggles from one and a confused, candy chomping face from the other.
When it comes to my two, this is great. So here we go: Christmas card done! Mommy brain accomplished! Well, half way accomplished anyways.
What about you?? Have you managed a good Christmas photo yet? If you are still deciding, I would recommend using a professional. 🙂
