You Better Smile

“My son won’t smile for a camera. So this time, on picture day, as I took him to preschool, I told him he’d better smile for the camera this time. When I came to pick up the photos, the teacher pulled me aside. She said that the photographer was in tears, and this was the best he could do. At first, I was a little mad that my son couldn’t pull out a real smile, but it’s quickly become my most cherished photo. It’s so him… stubborn and defiant. Maybe not everyone saw the humor in it. When I gave a copy to my godmother for Christmas, as she said she wanted a photo of my son, she said, ‘What is this?'”
