Seven-year-old Emma recently discovered Bill Waterson’s Calvin and Hobbes. She tried reading it a few months ago, and declared that it made no sense; now she finds it hilarious! It’s funny to see kids grow up and change!
Johnny has reminded me of Calvin for quite a while – most especially for his ability to grimace for photographs. Sometimes I catch him off guard:
But he quickly starts posing – and pulling faces!
I’m glad he has a sense of humor – and that modern technology means that I can take picture after picture without having to pay to develop the film!
But, maybe I should print them off anyhow. After all this is his personality!
Do your kids make faces instead of smiling for pictures? Would you frame a picture like this? Did you pull faces for pictures as a kid? Do you have prints? I remember insisting on smiling “like a Cabbage Patch Kid” when I was around Johnny’s age!
