What Pepper Will Never Be

I know as a parent I should not limit my child in pursuing career dreams. However, in Pepper's case, I'm fairly certain I know one profession he will never pursue:
Modeling!
If he does, great, and I'll gladly eat my words. But after today, I have serious doubts.

A big box of summer clothing arrived today from Nana and Aunt Linda. Those two obviously had fun shopping for Snapper and Pepper, and I am so grateful! To express my gratitude, I planned on taking pictures of the kids in all the new outfits. Snapper was a ham, of course, and struck some great poses. Pepper was a totally different story. He did great for the first outfit. Then not as great for the second outfit. Then not so well at all for the third. At the sight of the fourth outfit, he burst into tears and ran. I decided that was not a battle I wish to fight today. But when I uploaded the pictures, I got a good laugh. This story is kinda cute on its own. But as the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. So here are Pepper's 3,000 words in pictures. Suddenly it becomes much funnier. Enjoy a good laugh today, courtesy of my 2 1/2-year-old!

ROTFL! That boy shows EXACTLY how he's feeling, doesn't he? There is no guesswork needed. Well, he's a good communicator!

Hilarious! I need to get that application that allows us to make comic thought bubbles on our photos. First pic: "Hey, new clothes!" Second pic: "Yeah, new clothes, I know, let's get on with it! I have way too many other things to get into!" Third pic: "I am Wolverine! Just wait until my claws grow in! Pride and joy? How about frustration and grey hair! Oh, I am so done with this!"
