I’m a stay at home mother of two beautiful children, Zoey and Zane. I spend most of my days wiping butts and cleaning up…but what can I say I love every minute of it. I love the time I get to spend each day with my children thanks to God and my wonderful husband. This blog is about our daily happenings at the Blakley Ranch. Hope you enjoy!

One Smart Cookie...

I love to take pictures and one of my favorite subjects is my daughter, Zoey. However, she is not always as thrilled about the idea. Lately, I have noticed a similar pattern of events when I attempt to take her picture. It appears that she has a system when it comes to picture taking…she starts by covering her face or closing her eyes in an attempt to hide from the camera.

After I talk sternly to her and tell her that I am TRYING to take her picture… she pouts.

When all else fails I attempt to bribe her in order to get a good picture...and nine times out of ten it works.

What can I say, she has found a system that works for her…I can’t blame her for holding out for the bribe. She is one smart cookie that knows how to work her Mama.

I love those pictures...all of them. Even the pouty ones! Can you believe I'm about to get one of those?! A girl...for me? I can't believe it!

well, it is torture to take pictures you know. she had on her princess dress and you wanted her to be still and just sit! no fun in that!
she is pretty smart though... she knows if she holds out long enough, momma will get her some ice cream!!
