Sometimes He Cries

…because I won’t let him look through the viewfinder of the camera WHILE I’m taking his picture.

Oh the sweetness of the calm after the storm.

…because he can’t find his FUDDY GUY! (Anything from a clown to an astronaut to the demonic bionical happy meal toy with the red glowing eyes is a “funny guy” according to Magoo.)

I found the fuddy guy!  You can stop the waterworks buddy.

…because his spoon is the wrong color.

Oh the horrors of a GREEN plastic spoon.  The tears in the first photo are brought to you by the color of this spoon.

…because when he said “yes” he really meant “no” which of course meant “yes” except today because it didn’t and I dared to misunderstand his meaning.

…when I move him back to the crib after he escapes from his bunkbed. As he cries, he yells, “I WANT MY CHANCES!”

…because these feet aren’t really skid proof and the linoleum is less forgiving than he’d like.

One day he'll enjoy sliding around the floor when he's old enough to keep his head from blamming into things.  Unfortunately by that time he'll probably be too big for this sleeper.

…because everything fun is “dangerous.”

…because he’s two, the cookies are “hid” and life is pain.

    It sure is tough being two.

    He is too cute.

    Oh, it’s so true. It could be ANYTHING that sets them off. “BUT I DON’T WANT THE SUN TO SET.”


    Good luck with that.

    We had an evening like this tonight, full of oops’s, ow’s and tears. It’s always so reassuring to me to see that it’s a 2 thing and he’s being typical and it’s not a T21 thing. Not that I wish tears for Magoo, but thanks for posting them.

  5. Jeana says:

    Don’t forget the dropped wishies. It’s a cruel, cruel world.

  6. Theresa says:

    Being 2 is so hard!

  7. My 1-yr old son cries because I won’t let him look at the viewinder of the camera while taking HIS picture too. What a cruel, cruel world.

  8. Oh my word, he looks so much like you.

  9. Rebecca says:

    Aw, that face.
    And yes, we have the wailing twos here as well. Oh, the heartbreak.

  10. janssen says:

    DANG, that kid is cute (those tears just break my heart). And I lauhged aloud when I read “I WANT MY CHANCES!!!”

  11. bananas says:

    don’t we all just want OUR CHANCES? Cutie pie.

  12. Those are great pictures! And a great summary of how hard life is for a 2-year-old…and a 2-year-old’s mommy! Good luck at the mind reading.

  13. jenn says:

    Oh the life of a mom with a toddler, Im so sorry.. I remember those days almost dare do or say anything in fear that it will set them off! those are great pictures though btw!

  14. Shalee says:

    Hey, I’m 36 and that last one would make me cry too.

  15. Bart says:

    What a cute guy!

  16. Jessica says:

    My 2 year old has experienced the same problems and cry-fests, as I like to call them. I haven’t been able to see them in such a cute, positive light yet. Hopefully soon! 🙂

  17. Lei says:

    oh bless his heart…have you told him how much more difficult life will get yet? lol.

  18. ……and yet, sadly, these days will pass too soon!
    He’s a cutie though!

  19. Laura says:

    Oh, the logic of “kid-thought”….or illogic, or non-logic….they never fail to amuse me!

  20. A sweet post, really….sometimes I cry too.
    For different reasons of course, but you did hide the cookies!

  21. Emily says:

    Aw, its tough to be two. 🙂 This post made me smile – my oldest is nearing three now, but I remember this stage!!

  22. chilihead says:

    I remember this period with my son very well, indeed. Everything needed to be green. I had to figure out that if you mix the orange and blue slushies together at Sonic, it makes a green one. So I would explain that to the people at Sonic every time we went.

  23. Nicole says:

    Yeah its hard to be two, we have those same Jammies and they really are slippery.

  24. Kristi says:

    What a sweet post! And perfectly written about two year olds and their feelings 🙂 Loved it.

  25. mother of the wild boys says:

    I love this post! What a good idea, and the pictures are awesome. Why is everybody but me an amazing photographer?

  26. Caryn says:

    Oh, poor dear! Still, I can’t help but assume that he laughs far more than he cries. I just have that sense.

  27. Becky says:

    Really great Pictures Kate. I love that little. dude.

  28. sheena says:
