Smiles of a Tot
My Ay! Phone!‘s photo repository is full of tots. Luv kids. Can’t blame me. They’re so… naturally kids — honestly without sugar coating. WYSIWYG. Even with tantrums! At least you have an idea why their into a fit.
But most often, kids are sure fun to be with.
I have these two pics taken when I accompanied my nephew, Deen, to his Christmas Party last year. Deen is another tot, a 3-year old brilliance who can already read. In fact, he was the one who read the opening prayer before their party began.
As a toting Tita, since his parents where both indisposed at that time (sis was in US and bro-in-law was on an urgent business call) I asked Deen to pose for a souvenir picture.
Like a photo pro, I said, “Ok Deen, give me your brightest smile… 1, 2, 3, Smile!”
Cutie right? This pix is my screensaver. A real day brightener. That smile.
Anyway, I took another photo. This time, I want to see Deen’s eyes smiling too. So I simply instructed him not to close his eyes when he smiles. I even showed him how to do it. And this was how he smiled…
This forced smile of Deen made me laugh really hard! Oh kids!
