A few months ago Miles attended his first funeral after his great-grandmother died, aged 101. He's a big thinker, so there were lots of questions about the funeral beforehand. It was only when I bought him a new outfit for the occasion that he really understood that this was an important event at which he had to look and behave appropriately. As we got ready and put his new clothes on he reached down into the box with his "Doctor Who" kit and asked if he should put on this bow tie. It came from the front of a magazine, so it's not a real bow tie, and I was worried he might be uncomfortable in it all day. But he was so earnest about wanting to look smart that I told him that would be lovely.
After our long drive to the church, Miles sat down carefully. He behaved impeccably throughout the service and charmed everyone before and after with his winning smile. I don't know whether it was the bow tie that made him so charming, but looking at his face I have a sneaking suspicion that it might have helped!
Here's another adorable grin by ~Becky Sue~(RSL Photography) that will charm you. Look at that grin. It's irresistible, isn't it?
Have you tried to snap a charming smile? They're difficult to capture but so worth the effort.
