Once in a lifetime comes a parenting blog with photographs so touching, it makes your ovaries ache. This is not that blog.
Mr. Candy and I agree that this picture captures 99% of parenting a preschooler:
- One (1) preschooler clearly faking-slash-exaggerating the “wrong” being forced upon her (in this instance, me handing her off to her father — the horror!)
- One (1) weary mom
- One (1) dad trying to suppress his irritation about this all-too-familiar scenario
- The audio of the preschooler yelling “Poopy!” or “Booger!” Because our preschooler likes to interject them into most all conversations, especially when we’re at a venue such as a church.
On the bright side, the photographer also managed to capture one of our best family photos to date (not shown here, obviously). And isn’t that why we really attend family weddings — to take advantage of their professional photographers?
