The Terrible Twos


We have approached the terrible twos. If you're a follower, you'll know Jack is usually a smiley little chap. He always has a grin for his Mammy behind the camera. But even the most smiley, well behaved and all round lovely kid can have a little melt down sometimes. This one came about last week as I was hard at work taking some product photographs against a backdrop. Jack popped in to see me to ask for some "chocchock" (as he calls it) from one of the many selection boxes he received at Christmas. His Daddy had told him no, you see, as he had already had something from the tray earlier. Standing unified with my husband, I seconded the decision. Well. This was the result. A full blown temper tantrum. Of course I photographed it. He can thank me later. The tantrum only lasted a couple of minutes before he gave up. Even making these pathetic scrunched up expressions I think he is too cute! I could just eat him up. I want to remember all his little faces in years to come. So this will make the album. And he'll probably hate me for it.

  15. Bless you with this tough stage of life. My best advice is make sure he knows you are boss because if not, the teens will make the twos look easy.

  20. YES, YES, YES!! HAHA, this mirrors my days to a tee ;) We're entering the terrible twos next week, although I think they began 4 months ago when baby brother was born and stole my daughter's thunder.

  21. That's so adorable! I love reaching for the camera when they're being particularly photogenic in their tantrums. ;)

  22. Oh my yes I know the terrible two's very good. My daughter knows them even better. She has four boys and one girl. The two youngest are two and three.

    These pictures are just terrific. He is so so mad. You can drag these out when he brings a girlfriend home! :-)

    I do apologize for not following your blog sooner. I thought I followed you on Monday's GFC blog hop but I didn't. Well, I took care of that and am now following.

    Thanks for linking at my blog http://expressionsneeded.blogspot.com/ and thanks for following me too!
