This is Katie when she went to the pumpkin patch with her preschool. Her teachers take a picture of each of the kids in front of the pumpkins. Usually each kid smiles and proudly shows the pumpkin they have chosen to purchase. But not my child. She was afraid of something in the distance-(She said there was a monster there and according to the words written on the board in the picture- she was right!) and they couldn't get her to smile. I think her teacher felt bad, but I think it is a great picture. We have plenty of pictures of her smiling, but this is our first one of her looking scared. What great mother I am that I delight in my kids fears!:) Often during the Hallowen season when she saw something that scared her she would say, "I don't like that spooky."
