Why, Mom, Why????

It's time for We are THAT Family's weekly Sincerely Fro Me To You. Please go have a look see at what others came up with this week.

This week I offer you a picture that no child should have to find of them self.




Why, Mom, Why???

Was there really nothing more to do while we were camping? When your 5 year old daughter did the potty dance and might have said she really needed to go, did you really think photo op? Did you position her just so on the picnic table, surrounded by people (I see someone leaning on the tree, Gah, I hope looking the other way!) then run to get your camera? Or did you make me hold it until you got the camera? I hope it was handy.Did you confirm it was just #1? Or were you willing to take the chance all in the name of creativity? From the surprised look on my face I had NOT signed any waivers for this photo shoot. Did we later eat at that picnic table or were we just defiling someone else's campsite?

Mom, you need to answer for yourself and we are all waiting..................


Why, Mom, Why???

Bwahahahahaha.......that is TOO much for this girl!!!!

I got my foot stuck in a tree trying to climb it and my mother had to take a photo before she got my foot unstuck. Sheesh, the things mom's do for the sake of a photo! :-)

Oh! This is the best one yet! Too funny. Absolutely love it. My daughter with the bladder the size of a grape- she left her mark all along the trais of the Grand Canyon when we visited recently. My husband wouldn't let me take a pic.

HAH! It must be a once upon a time thing cause my Mom made me go on the side of the road plenty of times, and yet my kids have ALWAYS gone inside. Except the boy, he is equipped.

Funny post and yeah, that picture....ACK!
