PhotoStory Friday: I'll Get You My Pretty



When I posted this photo in my Facebook album, I just liked the fact that Miss Peanut Butter was shoving a rock at me saying, "look Mama, ROCK!" One of my friends commented on the thing she loved about the photo was the girl trying to choke out the other on in the background. I didn't even notice it. It is a little funny because I'm on a mission to find out who the parents are of the girl in yellow. She is not the nicest of girls. I understand that play can be rough sometimes and Miss PB is a rough houser, but she is also only 2 and a half. The other night this girl was trying to smother PB into the ground, push her down the hill and who knows what else when I wasn't looking. She is at least 5. The best part of it after all the stuff I saw her do, she told me Miss PB pinched her as I was taking her out of the situation. I'm sure PB might have pinched her, but I was so hot at the time that I actually said to her, trying to not fly off the handle, "well, you are not so innocent yourself." Thinking a 5 year old is going to comprehend this, as I walked away she asked the other girls there what that means. Argh. J and I have always believed in teaching standing up for yourself, it somewhat worked with The Boy and PB isn't going to be any different, in fact I think she will do more than fine with it, she just hasn't figured out the girl is being mean to her. When she does, I'm sure she'll be saying, "I'll get you my pretty..."

Holy crap. I so didn't even notice the girl chokehold in the background. I'm fairly certain in the distant future, this will be a keeper of a photo!!

I didn't notice it either!! Maybe she's just showing that other girl a new dance move...or something. :)

Sharon said...

I admit that I didn't notice the background either! Wow! Caught on film! ;)What are the odds of that happening?

Emily said...

I didn't notice either! Hmmm...let's hope her mommy and daddy nip that in the bud!

What an interesting little side note... the fight in the background. I hope you solve the mystery and save a few kids from her choke hold.

OMG, until I read the post I didn't see the background either. Girls can be so mean but sheesh, that little one must be so scared!

Love the rock though and those tiny little fingers! Happy Friday!

Chris said...

Oh my gosh! What a moment to capture -- did that other girl have parents in the vicinity?

Michelle said...

Oh my goodness, how funny is that capture??

Shellie said...

That is an awesome picture!

Maggie May said...

That quite funny. We never know when we take a picture, just what evidence we might be picking up!

Made a good PSF.

Cool picture, and how great that you captured the little bully in your shot. I hope your crusade to find her and her parents and teach her a good lesson works out. As a teacher and a parent, I can honestly say bullies are the WORST!

Lisa (Jonny's Mommy) said...

Whoa! That's awful! What must that girls parents be teaching her...or not teaching her? I hope things work out with that situation!

Julie said...

Geez I didn't see it either. Maybe her parents need a copy of that photo!!! Be nice to PB!!!!

April said...

Wow! Until you pointed it out, I totally didn't notice that bratty mean girl choking the other in the background. Scary how mean some kids can be to each other!
