"Show me your teeth."

These pictures just crack me up. Seriously.

And maybe you won't get the same enjoyment. But I couldn't pass up the opportunity to record this memory.

These pictures are actually from about a month ago.

We had just finished our M&M experiment during our Letter of the Week: M.....and I was tending to Grace....and Geoff was trying to get Parker to smile for a picture.

I thought we had tried everything over the course of the past {almost} 3 years...."Say cheese!", "Smile!", "Look at Mommy!", "I'll give you some M&Ms if you'll smile!", "Pleeeease!!".

But leave it to my husband to think outside of the box on this one.

He would say to Parker, "Show me your teeth!"

Such an obvious thing to say....I guess.....but I'd never thought of it.

So anyway....I hear Geoff telling her this as he is having some fun with her taking her pictures. But at the same time....I'm not really paying attention to what is going on.

Later that night....after the kids were in bed....I uploaded the photos from the day onto the computer.

As I was going through them...I found these. And I couldn't help but laugh out loud at her faces. Even tonight....as I went through them again.....sitting here all alone.....I laughed out loud. Haha!


"Show me your teeth!!" It's a decent smile.


Ok.....so here's where her face starts kind of looking....ummm....scary??


Funny face. You can kind of see she is starting to get bored with/annoyed at the picture taking.

Here....she kind of looks....well...maybe you can guess it. I can't bring myself to write it. Bless her heart. ;)



This kid.

I just love her to pieces.


And since this 'smiling lesson' a month ago....I'd say we've gotten some pretty good smiles!
