caught off guard

    The Jacob Options these days are a) clear and not smiling/laughing/talking or b) blurry and cheerful. This is option A.

    He looks like he's annoyed about the haircut but I think it was just that I denied him gingersnaps for dinner. Can you imagine how awful that must be for a 2 year-old? I mean, they have no concept whatsoever of the reasons they cannot or should not have gingersnaps for dinner. "Gingersnaps? I like gingersnaps, I'll eat them for dinner," they think, like good little Muppets. So, I empathize, kid. But yeah, still no cookies before dinner.

    at musing's end, puhahaha9, and 3 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Love this. Recently, my 4 year old told me he was going to call the police and have me arrested because I wouldn't let him have cookies for dinner. Instead, I was forcing him to eat his vegetables! The shame!

      My 2-year-old is the same way. I have these gorgeous pictures of him looking sullen and serious. Or blurry/ super closeup pictures of him being happy. Or just pictures of him running away.

      i bribed Cooper with a gingersnap last night so I could get him to try on a hand-me-down peacoat from his cousin. True story.

      it worked and then after he saw the cookie it tried RIPPING off the jacket.

      Even if he told you"But mother, your gingersnaps are so divine?"

      I completely understand with the mothering rules thing. look at that face and I'd have given up the gingersnaps.

      He is just adorable! How funny- yesterday I gave my 18 month-old granddaughter a gingersnap cookie I made that is quite spicy- was sure she wouldn't like it- well, she kept asking for more! I know it's a grandmother's privilege, but- Hurray for gingersnap cookies for dinner!!

      Oh my-- you don't get the "Cheese" face yet? That one popped up for the daycare class picture and it's hilarious!

      my 2 year old puts his little index finger up, makes the cutest, sweetest face and says, "mommy, just one!" and I cannot resist.

      Hah! those are our options too... grandparents however, don't really get that. they just demand pictures!

      He is the cutest little person, like, ever. This, coming from someone very biased in favor of her own brood.

      I just have to tag along on this, because I have twin four year olds, a boy and a girl. My son, in the last few months, has also repeatedly told me that he is going to have me arrested! Too funny. It wasn't because of food, though. It was because I wouldn't let him watch yet another Fireman Sam video. :)
