Best Photo Bomb Ever By A Toddler

posted in: Humor, Monkey My Son, Photography, Scrumplet, Sisters, Toddler 98 comments


This picture of my sister with my kids made me laugh.

It didn’t happen on a Thursday, but it’s my One Good Thing Thursday, as I hope it makes YOU laugh, and your Thursday, a little better.

Aren’t you glad this is a short post and now you can go off with a smile on your face to read the many blogs you subscribe to?

Happy Thursday!

Linking with Sarah’s adorable One Good Thing Thursday weekly linky.

      He’s impossible to photograph sometimes – he’s either mucking about (like in this picture) or running around or trying to grab the camera. So this? This was priceless. πŸ™‚

    Cutest photo bomb ever! What a great shot and memory of your family. I think I have several childhood pictures of me acting like this while my brother just sat plopped in someones lap cute and oblivious…it’s a great representation of their ages.

    It did make me smile…and it made me want another baby….which I can’t, which is good, ’cause can you imagine all the blogs I’d be writing if I was trying to get pregnant again. The word ‘vagina’ would not be safe ever again.
    That was a terrific picture! And kuddos to your sister for letting you post it. My family is always, “No! YOu can’t post pictures of us!” I like your family better πŸ™‚
