Whenever I try to take a photo of my children, I say: SMI-ILE!
But what I get in return are horrible, teethy snarls you’d find at a dentist’s cavity inspection. And the sound effects too!!
I always end up shouting… “Smile normally! Close your mouth! Stop twisting your face like that! Can you spit that out? Don’t show so much of your gums! I said SMILE for god’s sake, not show me your tonsils.”
Then I sigh, put my camera away and wonder why I even bothered.
Please tell me it’s not just me.
Lately, Liam has perfected this super-cute crooked smile as his go-to smile (top left).
I love it. He looks like a teddy bear.
(And it matches my husband’s crooked smile.)
