I’m happy to report that after this exchange in the car with J yesterday, it has been confirmed that there are no self esteem issues in this house. None. Nada. Zilch.
Me: “Oh, the leaves are changing. We need to see what Julesie’s availability is in the next couple of weeks so she can take your senior pictures. Do you have a nice sweater you can wear?”
J: “Boy, DO I. I have a sweater so ugly it’s going to be great.”
Me: “Wait, I don’t want you to wear an ugly sweater in your senior pictures.”
J: “It’s ugly, but in a good way.”
Me: “What does it look like?”
J: “It’s champagne-colored with a little bit of red and blue and…”
Me: “Is it busy? You can’t wear a busy sweater in your senior pictures. It’ll take away from the, well, the whole picture.”
J: “AND my beautiful face.”
Confidence? We’ve got it!
(P.S. He is quite handsome.)
You and I would make SUCH great inlaws, just saying.
RIGHT?? I know. But first we have to have our families in the same state for a minute.
I’m just impressed he knew what “champagne colored” was.
Yeah, I know. It surprised me and impressed me at the same time. 🙂
Nope, no self-esteen issues here. I hope you post a photo of his Ugly sweater.
LOL! Love it! He’s sexy and he knows it! You should play that song for him when your sister takes the pictures. 😉
Awesome. I love it. So does this mean I will have zero control over their wardrobes by that point in their lives? I really just want a photo of this sweater. You know that, right?
Oh, and yesterday I took photos of the wee ones and joked that I already had Little Miss’s senior photos. SO cute.
So, this is what Evan will be like in 8 years, eh? It’s definitely better than thinking they’re not good-looking. 🙂
My friends often laugh at my self confidence too, but it was hard won for me and now I’m darling, what can I say! LOL. And I’m sure he is handsome AND a marvelous person too, right? Go ugly sweater! GO!
That is awesome. LOL
Well. Now he has to wear the sweater so ugly it’s great so we can all see what it looks like =)
