Cutest Kid Playing With A Toy Contest

I know that I take a lot of pictures. The last I looked, my Picasa album had 12,000+ photos and surely there is one cute picture in there.

Or I could just do a photo shoot today.

Hmmm . . .what is my cutest toy? Forget the kid. I need to find a cute toy and put one of my kids with the toy. Yea. Toys are important. I want more toys.

Are you wondering what I am talking about? Do you think I am talking like a woman who hasn't gotten a lot of sleep? Well, it is true that my sleep has been lacking these days, but I'm being crazy to get your attention.

Why not enter a contest--today? Take a cute picture. And you, along with me . . . could win some toys. OK . . . the toys are really being won for our kids. But admit it. You live vicariously through your children and buy them they toys you always wish you had. Right? Or am I the only one?

Do you want to know what photo I am submitting? I know that I might have "cuter" photos, but this one picture captures Mr. Smiley's two favorite toys in the whole world.
  • His Radio Flyer bike
  • His brothers' Knight helmet and sword
And the reason I turned the photo into black and white is because . . . well, he is horrendously unmatched. Maybe I'll let you see . . .

Turquoise woolies with a RED sweatshirt. Nope. Not runway fashion!

I don't have a photo to sumbit because I don't have a child, but I LOVE your photo! He is so cute I don't think anyone would have noticed that he didn't coordiante! I imagine that when my husband and I have children, there will be a lot of non matching days!
