I took these pictures of Seth at five o’clock yesterday evening. The boys were getting ready for football practice and Seth was taking much longer than usual to get dressed. When he appeared I took one look at him and noticed he had mysterious blue socks on….no one in the family has socks like this…..did he actually have the nerve to borrow someone’s socks?….no, wait….those aren’t socks….those are sleeves….did he cut the sleeves off his blue underarmour layering shirt??????????? He insisted that he had not. I started using my “tell me right now I need to know what is going on” voice (similar to an excitedly squealing pig). When it all became oh so clear, I took him outside to take photos.
“You better not post these anywhere,” he said.
“When you do something like this, it’s going to be on the blog,” I replied.
Taking his photo proved to be as difficult as IT ALWAYS IS with Seth. He cannot stay still.
Although he has the looks to be one, he will never be a career fashion model. As soon as I “see” the perfect photo through the viewfinder of my camera, but before I can push the button, he has moved. I have to use high speed settings and much patience. However, I persevered this time and got some good ones, all to show you his creativity. Genius.
Notice the “SOCKS”:
THEY WEREN’T SOCKS
THEY WERE SLEEVES.
IT WAS AN ENTIRE SHIRT.
(and yes he went to practice that way)
I think he’s STYLIN’!!! Really, it’s kind of an ingenious stab at starting a new fashion trend, though only Seth can say if it’s too uncomfortable to take hold with the general population.
I think he should get some ‘Mom Points’ for not cutting the shirt.
Too darn cute.
Haha 🙂 Love it!
They look pretty awesome! I think he may be on to something! Under Armour should pay attention.
Ramona Quimby wondered in kindergarten how Mike Mulligan went to the bathroom when he was digging the town hall basement in just one day. I wonder how Seth managed this unusual arrangement…
kids and shirts…my bros did similar things when they were dressing up at home in order to wrestle. (Not the real sport, just their own version at home.) They also wore shirts on their heads.
Definitely an “A+” in creativity 🙂
