No Self Esteem Issues Here…

I’m happy to report that after this exchange in the car with J yesterday, it has been confirmed that there are no self esteem issues in this house. None. Nada. Zilch.

Me: “Oh, the leaves are changing. We need to see what Julesie’s availability is in the next couple of weeks so she can take your senior pictures. Do you have a nice sweater you can wear?”

J: “Boy, DO I. I have a sweater so ugly it’s going to be great.”

Me: “Wait, I don’t want you to wear an ugly sweater in your senior pictures.”

J: “It’s ugly, but in a good way.”

Me: “What does it look like?”

J: “It’s champagne-colored with a little bit of red and blue and…”

Me: “Is it busy? You can’t wear a busy sweater in your senior pictures. It’ll take away from the, well, the whole picture.”

J: “AND my beautiful face.”

Confidence? We’ve got it!

(P.S. He is quite handsome.)

    You and I would make SUCH great inlaws, just saying.

      RIGHT?? I know. But first we have to have our families in the same state for a minute.

    I’m just impressed he knew what “champagne colored” was.

      Yeah, I know. It surprised me and impressed me at the same time. πŸ™‚

    LOL! Love it! He’s sexy and he knows it! You should play that song for him when your sister takes the pictures. πŸ˜‰

    Awesome. I love it. So does this mean I will have zero control over their wardrobes by that point in their lives? I really just want a photo of this sweater. You know that, right?

    Oh, and yesterday I took photos of the wee ones and joked that I already had Little Miss’s senior photos. SO cute.

    So, this is what Evan will be like in 8 years, eh? It’s definitely better than thinking they’re not good-looking. πŸ™‚
