my daughter is not always happy…

Take for instance this picture, which I took during a tantrum about something or another.

Of course, I told her (fresh out of the bath) that she should probably put some clothes on before I took any more pictures of her being “sad”. 

This got her to stop crying and put her bathrobe on.  But, being the Hannah she is, insisted on “reenacting” the unhappiness for a picture, fully covered.

I think you can tell she was “pretending” to be upset.  But as always she gets a gold star for creativity. 

Also – this isn’t the best quality picture, but a week or so back my son woke up from a nap with the worst bed-head and I tried to capture it on camera:

The back was sticking up just as much as the top.

Love the bedhead AND the crying face!! We're blogging Mommies...we MUST record it all, lol!

I now threaten videotaping Bella when she acts up. She's so horrified of me posting anything of her where she's behaving badly, lol!!!!!

HIs hair looks like mine in the morning. I should totally take a photo of it. I love how your daughter re-inacted being sad. She's going to be famous with those acting skills.

Ms Bibi said...

She did a great job reenacting the tantrum,lol.

It looks a lot like my son's fake crying

Brian Miller said...

ha. yeah we have those times as well. i do like the happy pics better though,

Pinkie said...

Great job on the re-enactment. And I see absolutely nothing wrong with that hair-do.

Connie Weiss said...

The fake crying gets me everytime...and M has the worst thin hair that creates horrible bedhead. I think I'm going to have to shave her head.

christy rose said...

Oh my goodness! all of these are so cute! Love the hair! Jacob wakes up with his hair looking like this often actually. His hair is really long and curly so it looks hilarious in the morning. LOL

Jennifer said...

How priceless!

BTW-We call that "Rock Star Hair" in our house...especially when they refuse to allow me to comb it down!

otin said...

She did an awesome job of reenacting the pose!

Lee said...

Her reenactment looks more confused than sad.

So cute!

Kimberly said...

How do you forget the tantrums? They are fun sometimes too. The total cuteness of the whole thing.

Lucy said...

As a former theatre kid and children's theatre director, here's my (unsolicited!) advice. Put her in a theatre class NOW! She'll be a STAR! :)

HeatherOz said...

hahaha! That is the best bedhead I have ever seen! And your daughter should get an Oscar for her performance!

debi9kids said...

OMGOSH! That is the most fantastic bedhead I have ever seen! LOL

Love the fake tantrum too. heehee

My name is PJ. said...

Your daughter is a future Academy Award nominee. A little more practice and she'll be able to do a heartbreaking re-enactment!

And your son could very possibly have started the newest hair style trend....Yes, I think so!

Alyssa said...

Please forgive me for laughing. I think that's the best bedhead I've EVER seen. There's actually a picture book called "Bedhead"...but I think he outdoes the illustrations.

Your daughter looks familiar. I tell mine she has "crocodile tears"
Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could get what we want the same way?

If I looked that adorable with my bed head I would go out in public with it. SO freaking cute!: )

Christa said...

You need to take that girl to auditions ;)

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Cute "mad" pics and GREAT bed head! He wins the bed head prize of the day!

Molly said...

the photos of your kids always crack me up!

thanks for your comment on my last post, life is so crazy sometimes. And I'm also sorry about your friend who passed. I try to look at times like this as a reminder to love those in our lives even more, if possible.

Lucy said...

Hey, girly. I've left a little something for you over on my blog. Hope you've had a good weekend with the cute kiddos!

The Blonde Duck said...

The good, bad and trying not to giggle!

THE Stephanie said...

Hilarious! I have a pic like that of my daughter when she was about 1 - standing in her crib with a straight-up mohawk! I need to bring that one out! LOL

Clare said...

Gotta love kids. My little R. is quite the drama queen lately. LOVE the bedhead. That made me laugh at work

The Rambler said...

Bahahahahahahahahaha! Your son is gonna kill you later on :)

LOVED IT!

And again, maybe our daughters will be winning Oscars together later down the road. Caught my little one 'crying' but in the mirror. Mmmmm, she's practicing for suckers.
