A big family, a reading addiction, and the occasional celebrity scandal are the ingredients of life that create one woman's opinion on just about everything.

Praise be the kid is on his way. He was running late and was a most uncooperative photo subject. Can you see Emily in the background of the second photo? I don't know who was more a PITA getting a few photos taken. Crikeys!

You have all been so nice and sweet with your comments about the continuing saga that is my Shmoo. Truthfully raising him has been very challenging. While he can be delightful and a joy to spend time with one on one, sometimes, like during picture taking tonight I wonder if aliens have stolen my child. The arms folded was my idea so he isn't angry in that one...he was still somewhat cooperative. Take a look at the second one after we chased Emily from the room and tried to get Shmoo to smile. Yeah...not a happy camper. He'll be sorry when I put them in his scrapbook. Right?

He'll laugh call ME crazy and tell everyone how nuts I was about taking his picture WHEN HE DIDN'T EVEN HAVE A DATE. Yeah, that's the big crime. Apparently there's some obscure rule in the Mother Manual that says 'thou shalt not take photos of your son before a big dance if he doesn't have a date.' Any one else hear about that rule?

I swear teenage boys hate cameras. My brother was the same way and all we would get is his shoulder as he walked out of frame.

I just caught up on your posts and wow, what a mess of a few days. I'm sorry for Schmoo cause no matter what, that stuff hurts and then for her to say she's going to his homecoming. Yeah. So not going to happen!

I hope he had a great time and was able to dance with someone he liked.

I also hope you are feeling better!

Cindy, he was in a particularly snippy mood because he couldn't see the point of the photos since there was no date. He doesn't get that Moms like pictures of the kids all dressed up. Litte poop that he is.

Dev, he did clean up pretty good. Lots of running around finding everything though. I guess it would be even more of a challenge with a girl with all the stuff they have to do and buy.

Didn't know that was a rule. I think I'll just dismiss that one.

He looks very handsome!

You just can't win...they won't let you take a GOOD shot of them all dressed up, and it's going to be your fault when they're looking through the albums one day saying, "How can you let me go out of the house those clothes" about their everyday attire when they are older.

I so knew GF#2 would end up liking him. ;0) But then, how could she not...he looked very handsome!
