Soooooo, yeah. I decided last year that THIS year, I was going to buy Dean some bunny ears for Easter. Then it dawned on me, wouldn't it be cute to put them on him and take a picture so we could do an Easter card!!?!?!? Well, sure it would! I
trapped him buckled him into his booster seat and tried to put the ears on him. What happened next reminded me of this LOST A SOCK post that Molly did just before Christmas. Poor lady could NOT get her three kids to pull it together for a Christmas photo. I should have known this would never work.
Mooooooooooooooooooooom, I'm trying to drink my milk! Quit puttin' ears on me!
Sadly, I think that's the best picture I took, milk goatee and all. Just leave the ears on for a minute, Dean, so Mommy can get a picture.
You mean theeeeeeeeeeeeese ears?
I then realize that maybe I should give him Stu, his favorite monkey/constant companion, to hold. Perhaps having a handfull of Stu will keep him from ripping the ears off his head.
Not so much.
Then I think, Hey! How cute would it be if we spelled out an Easter message on the fridge with letter magnets?
Extremely cute! Now let's see if we can get one with the baby actually IN the picture. Look at Mommy Dean!
No, Dean, look at MOMMY. Over here.
Yep. That's mommy over there. Nope, she doesn't want to wear your ears. YOU wear the ears.
Uh, dude. Could you get Stu out of your mouth so I can take the picture, please?
Wait! Come back! I said NO ESCAPING!
Maybe a change of venue is what we need. Let's go downstairs.
Yay! Now I can rip my ears off in the family room, too! Here, Mom.
Thanks. Maybe if I hold them on your head...
Uh, except it would be nice if you were FACING THE CAMERA.
Wait, Dean, what are you doing? Don't...
Very good, but I don't think people will want an Easter card with Jonathan the monkey on it.
One more try...
Oh, forget it.
Happy Ea ter, y'all.
