Big Butt Baby Pant outtake

Remember this picture?

The other day as I was thumbing through my photos trying to find something, I stumbled across another picture from that photo shoot:

It just cracks me up every time. That tortured look. Just can’t stand that grass. Worse, it’s not the first time her evil mother has done this to her:

Anyway, thought you might get a kick out of that. Or maybe this will be the beginning of the child-advocacy group hatemail.

  1. That is hysterical!!!! thanks for making me laugh!!! I love these pics!!! i have a few of those with my son on my copputer too!

  2. Miserable kid pictures are too fun. Glad I'm not the only one who does that. Its always fun to make a kid stand outside in the cold or snow to model my latest knitwear.

  3. omg, ha ha! I bribe my kids with candy. πŸ™‚ but, we get crying frequently anyway. *sigh* My 4 y/o had gotten to where he's happy to model. So, I guess I have two more years of the other uncooperative model. Yay! πŸ™‚

  4. So funny. I had put the picture of the sunsuit in my favorites for this summer and Tuesday when my daughter and I were discussing a 4th of July outfit we looked back at the sunsuit. I think we laughed as much the second time as when we first saw it.

  5. Awesome! She's so cute. πŸ™‚

    It's good to get them exposed to the texture of grass early, even if they hate it! My son has texture sensitivity issues, and it was actually kind of hilarious to watch him try to stand up from grass or dirt without touching the ground with his hands. I'm a mean mommy, too. πŸ™‚

  6. LOL
    I have a collection of "MOM=MEAN" pictures as well. It's always the really bad pictures you gotta collect.
    I'm a very expressive talker and it's very normal for me to make expressions like I smell something absolutely terrible. My mom likes to collect pictures taken of me at special events making this face. Grad… engagement party… wedding… that sort of stuff. If she had really thought ahead she probably could have made a slideshow of those pictures for my wedding… thank goodness she didn't. πŸ˜‰

  7. You're a mean, mean mommy. Except your grass looks so soft and supple compared to our rigid, thick prickly excuse of a lawn.

  8. Like others, I can't decide what is more priceless in this picture: the tortured child or the soft green grass.

    LOVE it!!!

  9. My mom has this photo of me standing in the freezing cold ocean in Maine as a kid, howling in pain at the cold. For some reason, I absolutely love that photo. Yours are great!

  10. Too funny! And that is the sweetest sad face in the first pic too! Thanks for sharing a smile….even at her sweet expense!

  11. Those are fantastic! Everyone needs pictures of their kids screaming – just to prove that their adorable, well behaved children AREN'T robots! πŸ™‚

  12. I love it! Someone should start a Flickr group for all these tortured little models. I'm certain I have similar shots from my own childhood, wailing in Little-House-in-the-Prairie-esque dresses. πŸ™‚

  13. I love crying pictures and always pick up my camera to capture a moment. oh, the crumpled face.

  14. Best. Baby. Pic. Ever. My toddler (close to 3) runs from the camera now, screaming "No, no! I'm hiding from your pictures!" and I've been forced to concede that the days of endless baby pics are over.

    BTW I adore your blog and credit you with my love of sewing. I made 5 Buttercup bags over the last year as gifts. I had sewn curtains before–straight seams, that was it. Your instructions were incredible. The bags are adorable! Though I've yet to make one for myself…

  15. Ha ha . . . you couldn't tell her displeasure from the first photo. I guess some things never change. My LO took a little while to become displeased with the grass when I did similar photo shoots.

  16. Ha, ha! That's awesome. I've done the same thing myself but the crop tool always takes care of it for me.

  17. if i wanted my third child to stay put i just had to put his blanket in the grass-he hated it too! he would do anything to keep from having it touch him. poor kid πŸ˜‰

  18. I see that type of face all the time- but its the grass that has my real attention! Haven't seen that in a long time…

    PS 2/3rds of mine hated grass too and I love the funny baby pics I took of them avoiding it πŸ™‚ She's adorable.

  19. Love these! I am afraid to say that I have a few pics of my own wee one with the same expression. What is it with toddlers and grass?

  20. Ha! Too cute! Thanks for sharing those. Now I don't feel bad for the 'sad face' pictures I take. πŸ˜€

  21. Reminds me of the pictures I took of my then-3-month-old on a haystack (but there was a blanket underneath her!) at the pumpkin patch.

  22. So cute! I have some pics of my oldest that look just like that, I told my husband we have to capture all of her moods, even the sad ones πŸ™‚

  23. Those pictures are hysterical! I have plenty of my son making that exact face. Poor kids…always getting "tortured" my their mothers.

  24. Oh my goodness, those photos just made my day!! And I thought my daughter was the only one who's tortured by modeling lovingly handmade clothes. It's rough having a mom who sews, I tell you.

  25. Ahahaha, that makes me feel better for the pictures I sometimes post of my daughter with crazy morning hair! πŸ˜€ very funny!

  26. Gave me a good laugh! My daughters hated the grass at that age too…and the sand…and the lake water…
