But Jake's? I don't know why other people have such hard time getting a decent smile out of him. I know he is going through that awkward "cheese" phase but did they really think this was acceptable?
I knew it was bad when I asked Joe if he thought it was worthy of having it retaken on the designated day and he agreed.
So, retake day is this week. I had told Jake that I was going to have him retake his picture, that while it was an okay picture I know he can look much more handsome (I was trying not to make him feel bad).
Jake came home from school yesterday and said, "They are letting me retake my picture this week but I have to wear make-up or something like that," he scrunched up his face in a sort of grin (similar to his school picture actually) looking truly confused and frankly so was I. And then I realized where the confusion came in. His teacher had said they were having "make-up pictures" as in to make up for those who had missed them or needed them retaken. I cracked up at Jake thinking he was going to have to wear make-up for the picture. That is just too cute - classic Funny Nose!
