I hope he doesn't hate me for this when he's older.

Yesterday evening, I heard lots of giggling coming from the playroom. Then my son runs out and says, "Look at me, Mommy! Look at me!" And as I turn around, this is what I saw.

And of course I said, "Let me take your picture!" Normally when I say this he gets annoyed and doesn't want his picture taken but he was all for it. In fact, he decided to pose like a tough man.

A tough man in a tutu and a floppy hat.
I put my camera away and he scurried back into the playroom where I heard more giggling and then he came out dressed like this:
He had changed skirts and added some lovely pink heels. And he requested that I take another photo. And of course, I obliged.

He and his sister retreated back into the playroom and he came back out like this:


But I think the skirt, boa and pink teddy bear were too much for his testosterone to handle because the next time he came out of the playroom, he looked like this:

A pirate with a gun. Now that's more like it.
And Daddy, you can rest easy. I don't think the dresses, heels and boa will be a permanent play item for Peter.
It was just a fun afternoon of playing make believe with Sarah. And Mommy's camera.

Very cute! Very endearing! I'm glad you snapped the moments...He won't want to see them when he's older, but these innocent times are gone so fast!

He's a little, uh, phobic when it comes to stuff like that.
The funny thing is that Eli loves the color pink. HA!

Oh, yeah he will hate this but this is good amo for first serious date. It's your job as a Mom.

Lane Boyz Mom said...

Oh he is going to hate you for sure when he gets older, but darnit, he looks adorable;)

Jaina said...

Haha, too cute! He'll only hate you for it during the self-conscious adolescent phase...when he's older and cooler he'll laugh and crack jokes about them. ;)
