Tater’s Tears

See this?
Now, you might think they’re milk spots. They are not. They are actually Tater’s tears.
You know you are the meanest mom EVER when…throwing a fit because he can’t have a hot dog for dinner, you send your son to his room. Instead of going there, he stands on the stairs and cries a trail of tears.
And, this is also for Wordless/Wordful Wednesday. Hope it made you crack a smile 🙂

    I have never seen white tears! All for a hot dog, sounds like my daughter with her chicken nuggets.
  8. These kids and their tantrums. Mine is just getting started with hers. I thought I had another year before it started. So much for terrible 2's lol. Thanks for stopping by =)

  13. Holy jeeze those are some big old ploppin crocodile tears! Poor kid! haha
  14. Lilac City Momma says:
    Aww =( Happy WW!
  15. I know that I am a mom because I wrote a post about some mysterious goo in my bathroom.

    Darn kids!

    And those are his tears, really? Since when do kids try white thick tears?
  16. I can't tell a lie. Being deprived of food (especially yummy things like hot dogs) makes me cry sometimes too. ;) Way to stand your ground. (But I really did think those were those pesky milk drops!)
  17. Those are some serious tears! We've had more than a few of those. Happy Wednesday!
  18. Secret Mom Thoughts says:
    So sad!
  19. He cried you a river! Those are some big tear puddles.
  20. Oy! The heart wrenching toddler battles.
  21. NO WAY!!! Mean mommy! Those are like alligator tears!

    sorry Natalie, I think that I may have linked up to the wrong blog hop. I'm with the WW group.
  22. An Imperfect Momma says:
    Poor thing! (and I mean you ;o)) Wow...those are some fierce tears. I didnt think their tears could stain like that
  23. Belle's Butterfly says:
    Poor Tater! Did he end up eating the dinner you made? Those are some big tears!
  24. Cry me a river!
  25. LOL.... I thought that they were those spots that show up mysteriously in your pictures!!

    Poor kid was really upset, huh!
  26. Okay, I have to say that babe loves the monster on your blog header.
  27. Tantrums are amazingly powerful aren't they? Especially when they aren't doing any good.
  28. Lori @ In Pursuit of Martha Points says:
    Oh you wretched, wretched mom!!!

    I remember stains on shirts.

    Cause I was a wretched mom too. ;)
  29. Those are some impressive tears. It is amazing how dramatic they learn to be so young. Mine will give me this face that just breaks my heart. If we weren't mean sometimes though, they would be holy terrors.
  30. TornadoTwos says:
    Wow, he's good.
  31. Crap! I didn't read the directions until AFTER I linked up. Sorry Natalie...can you please delete me?

    And for my real comment...

    Awwwww. Poor Tater. You ARE a mean mommy! ;-) You must have been cooking something really horrible for dinner, huh? My daughter usually thinks daddy is the meanie, so I'll just go with that for now. LOL
  32. The Sharp's says:
    Aw! Breaks your heart!
  33. Aging Mommy says:
    He eats hot dogs? I'd be so happy if my daughter would, given her predilection for a diet based solely on pasta and pizza :-)
  34. Sarah Halstead says:
    Wow those are big tears.
  35. That absolutely DID make me smile. I think that pregnancy leads to a little bit of this same kind of emotion...I've recently cried over similar situations. :)
  36. Whoa, Tater! That's hardcore!!
  37. Wow, a real trail of tears! That's impressive, even at such a young age. He should use that skill to his advantage every chance he gets!
  38. Bitter Betty says:
    Who says that it's girls that are dramatic? I've seen some Oscar worthy performances from my 2.5 yo boy! Children!
  39. Oh, poor Tater! LOL
  40. Hi, I'm Natalie. says:
    My daughter cries (tears and all) when I don't cut up her food quickly enough. (But I'm told kids are awesome. =)
  41. blueviolet says:
    How guilty do I feel that seeing the trail of tears makes me laugh hysterically?!!!
  42. Megan @ Bug Creator-Crafts and Life says:
    aw poor tater! But too funny! My son did a similar thing only he walker around in his walker for 5 minutes crying cause I would not let him play with the candle in the window. Than he just stopped laughed and started playing... ugh drama king!

    Just wanted to let you know I have chosen you to receive a blog award!http://bugcreator.blogspot.com/2010/10/happy-101.html
  43. The Empress says:
    Tater's right!

    You are the meanest mommmy, don't ever try to stop me from my turkey hot dogs, sister....
  44. I seriously can't believe you captured those so well. Do you have a macro lens? And I think that means you must be a good mommy. :)
