  6. Oh, look at that sad little face! We have a balloon ban on our house just b/c they drive me nuts the way my kids play with them!

  7. That is the saddest face I have seen in a long time, and I see a lot of sad faces. Those splotches are serious!


    Never underestimate the drama that can result from having a balloon in your house. We've had more instances than I can count.

  8. I am not a big fan of balloons to start with.

    Our weekend was uneventful. No balloons were involved.

  12. Well hello stranger. :)

    Oh my goodness, that sad face is so sad. I am surprised that she let you take her picture. LOL!

    I am going to have to catch up on your blog! It's been awhile.

  15. Poor baby :-( Mommy always messes up the fun. LOL

    We don't do balloons. They are the most annoying things ever when kids are involved.

    Our weekend was far from a weekend. Charlie is still doing training so he was working, meaning it felt like a Monday and Tuesday around her. Blah. No major "incidents" thought so that is a plus!

  16. Oh poor baby. I know, balloons are fun for a little while, then they either pop or loose their helium and just lay around. What a sad pic :-(

  17. Oy - why does it always have to be PERMANENT marker??? Eek!

    Poor little sad face!:(

  18. Even this will pass. I think that's why they are called kids. I love you Miss Alex. I hope it didn't get on much of anything else.

  19. Awww, poor girl. Hate permanent markers.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh no! My kids always seem to find the sharpies and get it all over the place!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh dear...they feel those tragedies strongly, don't they?

    ReplyDelete
  22. My kids hate it every time we have to sacrifice a balloon. That is just the saddest pic ever...
