The Business

Ms. L will mean mug you if we tell her to give you “The Business”.

I’ve made several attempts to capture The Business on camera.

Most attempts fail. Like this one…because when the girls see the camera, they say cheese, and you know what happens when they say cheese:

And this one, which is a cross between The Business and a kiss:

But finally, after many failed attempts, I present to you The Business:

This is for Wordless/Wordful Wednesday…Check out some other fantastic posts below, or visit any of these blogs to link up!

  19. OMG. that's giving Tater on the slide a run for his money as my fave photo!
  20. Daria @ Mom in Management says:
    So darn cute! I first thought I should only take pictures of the kids with smiles, but I find I love the other faces better so now try to capture all these goofy expressions too.

    CUTE! (until you're seeing that in a teen face..) :)
  21. Oh man! I need to get The Business look goin' on for myself, because I can already see what an impact it would have on people in my life!!

    But from such a little one?

    Oh man....
  22. Too funny. And captured for all time. Great blackmail?
  23. laughing out LOUD! Oh, that is too perfect! I think you should have a day where you change your profile pic to The Business.
  24. I am DYING of the cute. That first pic with the hint of a smile? DYING.

  36. What adorable, expressive faces she makes!
  37. She is so freaking cute!

    We call it the stink eye.
