Sticker Man

Colin loves to pretend to be different superheroes.

When Grandma Nette gave him and Cameron umpteen sheets of stickers a couple of weekends ago, he apparently decided to turn himself into 'Sticker Man'.

The result? Dum-da-da-dum: Presenting Sticker Man!!

Mastering the art of sticker applique

"Yes....I'm quite pleased with this. I'm thinkin' I look pretty awesome--Huh, Mom?"

Of course, Cameron had to copy so they could both be 'Sticker Man'.

And, then....the time came when Colin wanted to not be Sticker Man anymore.

This ensued.

A few smiles and laughs {in between the shrieks of agony} to show
how he was trying to be a very tough Sticker Man despite the pain
"Ow....Owwww....I can do this, I can do this....."
And, of course, I was not snapping photos from whatever angle I could to document this process while peeling stickers from my eldest son's poor little face.
That would be crazy.
And cruel.
Aw. What a sweet little face. This picture really got me.
Poor Colin. He was slightly traumatized, I think.

Cameron, on the other hand....
...nothin' phases this kid.

He was sitting there, watching Colin writhing around in pain, yet still continuing to attach more and more stickers--apparently completely oblivious to the fact that he, too, was going to have to go through this *ahem* slightly uncomfortable removal process.
Good thing a kiss from Mommy makes everything better.

I can totally relate to this....My 6 year old is forever pretending to be a superhero.
Awesome pictures. Do you think he will do it again? Mine would, LOL

AWWW!! Poor guy! I was laughing with tears in my eyes over those pictures, because it was soooo stinkin' funny, yet sad at the same time.

And of COURSE you would NEVER take pictures of the torture, I mean sticker removal process...you're MUCH too sweet for that!

Sticker Man to the rescue!! Ha . . . I love the first picture. He looks like he is in the middle of running somewhere but quickly stopped to pose for the camera. The last picture of just Colin is so sad. . . poor guy! I think that is how I look when I get my eyebrows waxed. Ouch! :)

Thank you for your sweet comment! It looks like you have so much fun with your kids! I hope to be a fun mom like you one day! :)

Sticker Man looks so professional when he is putting on his stickers.
I wonder if Sticker Man will return.

Molly said...

Um, would Colin let me borrow some stickers? I could save myself a trip to the "waxing room" at the salon . . .
