The Misadventures of a Third Child


When little boys spend their days getting into mischief of one kind or another,


sometimes, they get just what they deserve…


And, as payback, their mommies may just delay rescuing them long enough to snap a picture.

Fair’s fair, right?

    I find I am always saying “Hang on…Mommy loves you, you’ll be ok, stop screaming, I am just trying to find the camera”.

    He sure is a cutie!

    I swear I have a son that could be the twin to your little darling…complete with the mischevious little glint in his gorgeous, big eyes. boys like this will spend their lives getting away with far too much, I think. thanks for the fantastic photos.

    As with most everyone above, I concur that this is fair and very funny ground. If you begin to show these pictures to every one of his dates in high school, then fairness is in your rearview mirror… oh, you would never do that? That only happened in my house? Well, whatevers.

    I am a third child.. can’t really remember my ‘under five’ years.. however, I also have a third child (and a fourth) and I can so see my own pictures (and memories) similar to yours. My #3 is a girl and found her share of mischief! Enjoy these days Jill.. they go by so quickly!

    p.s. My youngest child ‘Jill’ is 18 and going away to college in two weeks.. I do mean quickly!

    LMAO!!! Priceless! What do you do? Follow him around the house all day with a camera?

    I have to wonder what’s going through his head when you leave him stuck in a pot and say “hang on honey, let mommy get the camera!”

    Ah well, that’s all for the therapists to sort out. ;)

    Love it!

      No, he just wrecks havoc ALL DAY LONG. My camera is in the kitchen, so I can grab it quickly when he gets into trouble there. Oh, the moments I haven’t caught on film!

    This just totally makes me smile. Licking the spoon, playing with boxes, climbing. Those are all great fun kid activities.
