Take this look for instance...do I pass for a girl? My big sister's, who keep begging my mom for a little sister, got what they were asking for - if only for a minute or two. (by the way...that long hair stuff is for the birds)
Here I am on my third birthday - you might ask yourself why this picture is funny? Well, my mom decided to take me to a professional photographer to have some really nice pictures taken. She spent about 20 minutes getting me all situated, fixing my hair, staightening my clothes (the way all good moms do) and explaining to the photographer that I do not smile on demand. (obviously I do things my own way) After she was all done fixing me up, she turned around to walk back to where the photographer was situated when the picture man exclaimed, "I thought you said he wasn't going to smile?" My mom turned back around and saw me grinning ear to ear - boy did I get her good!
This one still makes me giggle. My mom (mostly the recipient of my practical jokes, poor thing) had a friend over one day when she decided to show off all my beautiful teeth. She opened my mouth and was touching my front teeth to show her friend, when I let one loose - tooth that is. Out it popped right in front of their faces. My mom didn't know whether to laugh or cry it happened so suddenly.
My brother and I take Karate - okay, he takes and I watch. I was still learning though - he just didn't know it. One day after class I got to go into the DoJo so he could practice some moves on me. Little did he know, I had some moves of my own and before he could say "UNCLE", I had him pinned! To this day I am known as "Grand Master Ben" at the studio.
This one is probably my favorite prank to date. We were visiting my Mimi and Grampy down in Florida while they were on their mission. My Mimi loves to hold me because I am the cutest thing ever! On this particular day we were waiting for Kaleb and Stevie to get their hair cut. As I was sitting on Mimi's lap she noticed that I was smiling really BIG! She told my mom to quickly get the camera which she did. What Mimi didn't know (until the smell was overwhelming) was that I was passing gas...hee, hee. (I'm still cute though, aren't I?)
HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY!
