So I choose costumes that don't usually look like costumes. It seems easier to convince my hard-headed son to wear something that isn't out of his normal wardrobe. This year, we dressed them up as Charlie and Lola. That basically meant, Charlie wore a baseball ringer shirt with "Charlie" written on it, jeans and sneakers and Jane wore a funky and/or stripe-y dress with clips in her hair. This is what transpired during my photo shoot.
"Charlie, don't squeeze Janie's neck, please"
Someone pushed someone
A lot of giggling
"Let's try this one more time...no stay over there, Jane."
"Could you stand up so I can get a picture of your outfits? No?
