5 Stages of Popsicle Eating
Think blogging is always so glamorous? It’s been awhile since I shared the “true” photos from my camera. As a behind-the-scenes look at blogging, today I’m sharing the 5 Stages of Popsicle Eating, a perfect edition for Family Focus Friday. Does your child eat a popsicle like this too? Or is it just my blogger kid?
Best. Day. Ever. Stage
If you give a child a cookie. Or in this case a popsicle. The awe and wonder stage is my favorite part of popsicle eating. This is of course after 20 minutes of my agonizing picture set up as my toddler looks on with whines and complaints. But I could have gotten this girl to do anything at this point. And my heart melts (get the pun).
Ah. My child’s true colors begin to emerge as all manners and eating skills go out the window. This would definitely have to be my next favorite stage of popsicle eating. Because….how could adults get away with eating like this? Never. Classy.
Not-So-Real Smile Stage
As you try to wrangle your child back to civilized eating, the blogger kid smile emerges…aka the fake-est smile ever. Full on monkey teeth come at full force. You click away anyway to someday show their future spouse. And just when you think it’s safe, you beg for a few more pictures and get….
Silent Protest Stage
Priceless. I’m printing this one.
“Fine. Take pictures, but I’m not going to be happy about it.”
At this point, it’s probably somewhere in the 20 picture range of my photo shoot. The sneer comes out and I try my hardest to hold back the laughter. Because….this face. How can you not LOVE this face? I can only imagine all of the baby swear words she’s thinking right now.
Can’t Even Show You Stage
All bets are off. I’m somewhere between making sure my toddler doesn’t throw the popsicle at the floor/her outfit/my head and trying to put down my expensive camera out of range of the toddler tantrum.
And the best part of this post? This all takes place within a 5 minute span. Trying to get photos of my toddler during ANY blog post is just as fun. If there’s no toy or bribe involved…..complete torture times 1000. Begin concrete foot walk and full on meltdown whine.
So there you have it, the “other” photos from my Raspberry Kiwi Popsicles photo session.
