There is not a Friday Funny today because SOMEONE decided to be awake from 2-4 am and then SOMEONE did not take a nap. For the second of the last three nights. Needless to say, this does not get my creative juices flowing. It gets my anger and irritability levels way up, but creativity? Not so much. So instead, I bring you my cop out (but still hopefully a funny post. Maybe.).
Before she started preschool last year, she never said cheese. Then the week of class pictures, they had a unit where they learned how to say cheese the right way. Ever since then she’s been saying cheese just fine. However, all of a sudden she’s pretending she doesn’t know how to do it. In fact, after a week of terrible pictures, I asked her what she was supposed to do when I said “say cheese” and she claimed she didn’t know.
I’m not sure how to get our cheese back. She got in big trouble over a series of non-cooperation the other day that ended with the “I don’t know what you are supposed to do when you say cheese” statement. After that fight, I did manage to get her to say cheese for real, but she’s doing a big fake smile that makes her eyes close.
Maybe we’ll get the cute pictures back some day, but for now her selection of cute pictures in our photo albums are going to be slim. And if she ever asks me about it, I will show her exactly why.
