Here is one of my latest scrapbook pages for little man. This day I had spent forever trying to get little man to provide me with one of those perfect photo ops. He was playing in the pool (ok maybe 'playing' is being a little optimistic, since every time I put him in there he cried like he was on fire or something). I wanted one of those adorable photos in his little swimming suit, but little man wouldn't do it.

He refused to be cute while he was being forced to stand in that wretched, torturous swimming pool. So I got him out, but he was still absolutely indignant at the horrors he had been forced to face, and would not stop crying until a cookie was laid on the table as a peace offering.

'Ah yes a cookie, that will be enough to compensate for all of my pain and suffering mom.' And well little man I have to tell you that you may have won the battle, but I won the war, because I got my photo op after all.

And seriously, he is so cute isn't he?

Great job on the Page!! I love that my kid isn't the only one avoiding pools this summer like the plague.

I think you need to do a crying page, too. Cause he is "so cute", even when crying!

Yes, he is SO cute!
Wonderful page!
I like nettie's idea, too..make a crying page!

Don't you hate it when you are so ready for the perfect photo op and they totally thwart you? You totally won though - that chocolate picture is priceless. And Sam has been screaming every time we take him in the pool too. People stare at us as though we're pulling his toe nails out. We just want to swim!

Nicole, thanks so much for your comments over on my blog about Sam's sleep. I really appreciate your support and what you said made so much sense.
