Most of the time I have a happy smiley teenager. But then there is the time when you ask her to do something she does not want to do, or take her away from something that she wants to do such as taking her to church on Sunday morning when all the rest of her cousins are staying back at the vacation house that we are staying at. When you do something like this you are apt to get a not so smiley teenager.

You are are also apt to get a response from the priest at church that goes something like this: "you know you guys could audition for a carnival cruise commercial". I'm not sure if the rest of the family wanted to crawl under the pew or burst out laughing. One thing I do know is that it is soooo true. She has the same look as the teenage girl on that commercial.

I am hoping that statement will make my daughter think a little but I'm not holding my breath. I'm quite certain that I will see that pout for at least another 5-6 years. Oh well, it makes for a great story. My goal now is to capture it on film so that when she has kids I can say "Oh yes, you did pout like that"

Truly one of the highlights of our weekend. It was as though the priest was a "plant"! And I was one of the family laughing.
