Capturing “Madditude”

A few weeks ago I shared a story with you about my granddaughter, Madison, and her attitude.  Madison + Attitude = Madditude

Well since that post we have tried unsuccessfully to capture Madditude in a picture that would show you all what I am talking about.  My daughter, Naomi, was finally able to capture Madison in action with attitude this week.  I present to you all the very face of “Madditude”.    I just love her oh so serious smirk.  I imagine she’s thinking, “Does my Mom really need to take anymore pictures of me today?,  Such a bother.”

Now imagine this face with hands on hips professing her knowledge of the world.  Oh and if there is finger pointing involved take cover or run in the opposite direction.  She is probably not a happy camper.

It just amazes me that at the ripe old age of 2-1/2 Madison is able to convey so many emotions and expressions.  My photography goal for the rest of this year is to try and capture as many Madison expressions as I possibly can.  The family calendar will be amazing for 2016!  Happy Sunday to everyone.  Enjoy your time with family.

How’s Your Madditude?

Maddy has attitude.  That equals “Madditude”!

2 years old + Mind of her own + Independent spirit + Solo flyer

I have recently coined a new phrase to start off the beginning of this year.  My granddaughter Madison, is just about to turn 28 months old.  She stays here at Camp Grandma two days a week.  We have fun together blowing bubbles or getting creative with the play dough.  She loves to go outside, and just dig in the dirt.  Oh the life of a two- year old.

Madison is probably the most  independent spirit that I have ever known.  She definitely has a mind all her own, and loves to be a solo flyer doing things.  And of course I have to watch her like a hawk since there’s so many intriguing things to look at or get into here.

So, now to explain my new phrase; you see when the little person in your house who is only 28 months does not get her way, or has to be emphatically told, NO, that’s when the “Madditude” bubbles to the surface.  It mostly comes across in the form of a scream, or instantaneous crying, very loud crying.

So the next time your favorite toddler gets in trouble, and their “Madditiude”” bubbles to the surface, just picture Madison yelling, or crying, or standing in front of you with arms crossed glaring (I’ve been trying to capture a picture of this with no success yet).  And if that favorite toddler is your grandchild you have to study them carefully because all their little mannerisms will remind you of your own kids at that age.  Precious and priceless!!
