Kiss That Frog
Photo-A-Day #1544

I’m on a Peter Gabriel kick or something. Yesterday with Shock the Monkey and Today with Kiss That Frog. Oh, where is the frog? Here.

Kiss that Frog (Bonus)

I went with the lily because I love the richness of the color and the sharpness of the main lily with the green and purple backdrop. I didn’t think that the lilies were going to be the best shots today and so I took a ton of the frog. However, when I was reviewing my photos the lilies immediately capture my interest. I review the rest and yep, the first shots ended up being the ones I liked most. Funny how that sometimes works.

Things are moving like crazy for me lately. I had an interview with a reporter from the New York Times. I sign into Twitter tonight and there is a tweet from Ted Murphy and he’s hooked me up with an interview with Forbes. Wow! So look for BenSpark in your local and national publications. So overwhelmed.

Tonight Eva had a bit of a meltdown. Daddy has some patience however and can wait out the crying. Sometimes she just needs to get it out, regroup and then she can function. Eva refused to sit in her chair and wanted her milk with a cover off. I wasn’t up for dealing with spilled milk tonight so I had Allison put the cover on. Eva was upset, she wanted the cover off. She also wanted to eat in front of the TV and watch Marry Poppins. This past weekend we did a picnic in the living room. She wanted to do that again. We said no, she melted down.

When she finally calmed down she sat in front of her plate of turkey burgers and peas. I told her that if she ate a piece of burger I would get her ketchup. She proceeded to shove the piece of burger in her mouth, take one bite, look at me and demand “Ketchup!” I had to leave the room to keep from laughing.

  1. Can’t wait to see the interviews. Congrats!

    Isn’t it funny when your child is misbehaving but they do something so cute that you have to work at not laughing? They can be so adorable at the wrong times!

    Congratulations and good luck with the interviews. There should be plenty of day lilies out this weekend, they are about to bloom any day here in the yard. Sounds like Eva is testing you.

    Connie,
    Thanks about the interviews.
    As for Eva, it is hard not to laugh sometimes. She was finally calmed and was eating her dinner very nicely. But when she shoved that turkey in her mouth, chomped down on it like Wolverine chomps on his cigar, looked at me with one raised eyebrow and said “Ketchup!” Oh I laughed out loud and scooted out of the room so quickly.

    Dad,
    Thank you. I am looking forward to seeing the day lilies down the Cape. The yard is going to be practically all orange.

    Eva is testing us, and I figure she’ll be doing that from now on, and on, and on.

    Wow Drew! Gratz on the interviews! That’s fabulous! You’ll have to change the name to I’m a famous blogger! Hehe.
    My grand-daughter is at the same age and demanding things her way. Meltdowns are a regular occurrence at that age, but patience does win out with smiles.

    Baba,
    Thanks very much. I’m not sure when the interviews are going to go out live but they were really fun to do.

    Will your grandaughter be coming to IZEAFest? You are going, right? It would be fun for her to play with Eva.
