It's hard to have the camera ready at the right time. Yesterday morning we were at the computer, watching a video from the Christensen Family blog of when Luke's cousins sang him Happy Birthday. I told Luke it was about time to get in the bath. Then I got the mad/sad/disappointed face. So I busted out the camera. Hey, Luke, can I see your mad face? I asked.
Um, nope, that's not it. I had my camera ready to see if there would be a spontaneous repeat. There was, but it was not well documented. We would watch the video and I would tell him it was the last one and we'd have to get in the bath soon.
No, more birthday. Luke would let me know. So we'd repeat the process.
I wasn't trying to torture my kid, I promise. He was pretty smelly and did need a bath. I just happened to have the camera there. I just with that I had gotten the full-on pout face with his lips stuck out and brow furrowed. He gave it to a little girl at story time that was trying to do a good deed and put his scarf away for him. He gives it when Mac leaves for work and he says "My Dad". I can't wait to get that face on camera. I know that may sound terrible, but I love seeing his expressions and emotions.
Eventually I convinced him that we could watch more of the video after the bath. In a situation like that I'm kind of hoping he forgets about it (seeing as we had already watched it 20 times). Well, this is him right after drying off.
