My New Career (again?)

So we all stayed home today, and were really, really bored. Then the kids started sniping at each other and I thought about auctioning them off. My oldest son Dainon started editing photos of himself for his Facebook profile. I saw what he'd done, then I begged him to let me take some of him and mess with them myself.
I begged, pleaded, shed a tear or two and then he let me! Now, I have a really cruddy point and shoot camera. It does a terrible job with faces, the flash is so harsh and no flash is blurry, but I had a fantastic time. I was giddy.
Am I a pro? Alas, a lack. But my son will no longer have a lame facebook presence. Any little thing I can do as a mother, you know?
I present to you: The Many Faces of Dainon

I love his eyelashes. Did you know he stole them from me? Mine kinda fell out after he was born.

He let me mess with his hair too. The sacred forehead is showing. That sucker hasn't seen the light of day in years.

This one reminded me of some Andy Warhol print.


I call this one "Edward" I think he should be all pale and sparkly for Halloween.



I'm lovin' the hair. Would that mine had curl like that!
The eyes have it.
This one has a 'rebel without a cause' feel to it. Yeah, it was such a blast to do, too bad Logan won't let me take pictures of him. Maybe I can bribe him with something?
Hey, Loganski, I've got some chocolate soy milk for you!

I took a page from your book (not the make my son look freaky page) and let my daughter stay home from school because she may or may not be feeling like she might get sick a week from Thursday! Heck, it's only first grade and I needed the company on this rainy, pack up the kitchen kind of day.

He's so very hip. I'm surprised you didn't put any girl hair-dos on him. Now THAT would be fun!

You are a brave woman, ya know that? You made him look way too good! Aren't you already struggling with the girls trying to break down your doors? Why on earth would you help him look better!? lol

Well, Little E is up,
gotta go! :)
