Photostory Friday: The kind of dad I am

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek





I don't know if this post says more about the kind of father I am, or the kind of son Matt is. 

Me: "Matt, go stick your tongue to a metal pole, so I can take a picture of it."

Matt: "Okay."




Actually, I dedicate this Photostory Friday to our favorite expatriate in England, J the Grockle, who, after I posted the Leg Lamp Story, practically TRIPLE DOG DARED me to take this picture. 




By the way, his tongue didn't actually stick. 
I tried it first -- I'm not THAT kind of dad. 

I hope everyone is having a Merry Christmas!!

I gotta get back to Guitar Hero!

*LOL* Love the pictures. You know I actually didn't watch Christmas Story today. I'm sure the marathon is still going on though.

Great fun! Matt did a great job at acting for the photo too. It really does look like his tongue is stuck!

Robyn said...

I am so glad his tongue didn't stick. My dad said that one time a kid at his school did it and it was just like A Christmas Story...they had to call the fire company and everything.

Great shots!

This was very fitting for your blog and so glad Matt could be a part of it. You are keeping "The Christmas Story" traditions alive and that makes it fun. Be ready for your grandchildren to present you with these pics years from now!! Thanks for the visit and I wish you many more abundant days in the coming year!

Happy Holidays - it doesn't look cold enough for his little tongue to stick! But great photos!

When I saw the first picture my thought was "I sooooo hope that's a freezing cold metal pole!" and was quite excited when you said it was. But it didn't stick? What the...!?!

Katie Says So said...

Very cute! haha! Reminds me of A Christmas Story!

CaJoh said...

It may not have been cold enough outside. I actually had my keys stick to my lips as I was holding them Tuesday… ooops

That's it. You're officially my favourite, Sharon. Not only were you brave enough to experiment with your son, but you took gorgeous photos to prove it! Those need a frame.

Sorry I haven't come around, I have a sick little guy who is frightening us :-(

I hope you had a great Christmas.
