I finally got to school 30 minutes late after trying endlessly to cheer the cowgirl up for a picture. She did great once the camera went away...then I'd pull it out thinking we were over the tears and as soon as she would see it the tears would come out again. We did this over and over until I gave up. So, these will have to do.
Here are my two little cowgirls this morning..
I started with Ellie as we attempted both at first but Hadley was screaming:
Took the camera away and got this one a few minutes later but as you can see underneath...the tears came back quickly.
Got her happy on Rody...
Got ready to go in the car and she was excited to be going to school so I thought, what the heck, I'll try outside....nope..
Running into school. Pretty happy...but won't look at me..
Nope.... NOT going to look....
Another parent stopped and tried to help me get a picture and she looked at us right here and said, "I go insi..(Inside) I see Ms. Renee."
The other parent put them down on the curb like this and Hadley refused to look at us...then when Ellie put her arm around her, she shrugged her off....
She was NOT having her picture made today. Not with my camera. She can be such a little STINKER sometimes. As soon as we got inside she was running and happy. The girl loves preschool....but obviously hates the camera. I was so DETERMINED to get a good picture...but Hadley won. She won today......And all I keep hearing in my head is, as my dad would say, "payback." Strong willed children- gotta love them!
