|First, you need to convince the kid to come out of hiding in his closet.|
Next, take photo. Kid will claim to smile. This is a lie.
Threaten with kisses.
Try again. Get the only great photo of yourself that has been taken in weeks, but also get another goofy photo of the kid, not smiling and missing half an eye.
Try again. Kid smiles. Like a puffer fish would smile.
To hell with it. Tickling commences. Camera is wildly turned about, capturing odd photos.
Threaten to eat brains unless a good photo is taken.
Kid will, again, try to convince you that this counts as a smile.
Make your own goofy smile, "Just one goofy photo, THEN a real picture!".
Kid takes camera. Kid takes self-portrait.
Get a photo of kid with a good smile, and the closet in the background.
Make faces with kid, telling him to "get the goofies out".
But - try one last time!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
