Wordless Wednesday — Screaming Ballerina

Wordless Wednesday - Screaming Ballerina

Olivia — Screaming Ballerina

After Olivia and Julia’s ballet recital, while I was being mamarazzi, Olivia had a vicious tantrum when I took a photo of Julia instead of her. She ran away and I chased her down to this wall. Of course, I took some shots, which made her scream even more But seriously — I had no choice — this is a hysterical shot!

Mom Bloggers (and Dad Bloggers too!) post a photo on your site, link up and find others… Wordless Wednesday is tons of fun. (And I know it says “wordless” but I just can’t bear to not write anything! If I had created it, I probably would have named it something different! LOL So feel to link up your word-full or word-less Wednesday photos!)

Leave the URL to your photo (clearly mine are never truly “wordless”) and then visit others!

Here is a fun thumbnail linky:

And here is a basic linky if you prefer your linkies the good old fashioned way!

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

That is so funny, and cute! This reminded me of when I first brough my daughter to ballet… she was about three and I just assumed that since I grew up dancing that of course she would too (ha!). Imagine my surprise when she sat on the floor refusing to dance, ran out of the room crying, and proceeded to scream at the top of her lungs for a half hour because she, “didn’t want to dance!” Oh my… :)


18 Mimi June 29, 2011 at 12:52 am

I love how we think as moms! Awesome that you caught her at her NOT finest moment. Nothing’s better than true life. =)


19 Amy June 29, 2011 at 12:56 am

Hilarious! You know, I actually look like that on some days – all dressed up and no one paying attention to me! LOL! Great picture!


22 Emilie June 29, 2011 at 1:32 am

27 Joni June 29, 2011 at 6:42 am

even if she is having a tantrum, she is still cute. i actually like photos like this. i prefer to capture all of the moments, not just the good ones.


28 Beth June 29, 2011 at 7:38 am

LOL – Laughing with you of course. So nice to know that I am not the only one to chase down one of the kids during a tantrum. So many funny items to capture during these moments.

31 The Gang's Momma June 29, 2011 at 7:56 am

LOL – and I’ll bet she has the pipes to go with the face here :) So funny. Some day, she’ll laugh about this one. For now, she’s comforting hundreds of other moms with the thought, “Shew, I’m glad my kid isn’t the only one who throws royal fits in public!” LOL!!!!!!
