    Just like PMS, only with more pouting.


    1. Sarah S. says:

      But I don’t ever look that cute when I have PMS. Maybe it has to do with the veins popping out of my neck and my frothing mouth being open and screaming. Maybe.

      Well, you know, being on the water, with your own chair and umbrella, if it’s not YOUR idea, then it really sucks.

      Hey, I got a little boy named Sean that can do that very same pose.:)

      And to think this is what he looks like when it seems he’s in the middle of a fun outing… 😉
      I got some squash faces for ya, come look!

    10. daisyaday says:

      Oh, yes! I so remember! In fact I have a fifteen year old and she hasn’t lost that look. It’s just way cuter on your little guy. Maybe because he’s not mine.

      What would you take for that… Mope-trin?


      Like most little boys – adorable even when angry.

      I love the way their whole bodies reflect their feelings at that age!

    14. Donna says:

      That’s the sweetest-looking pout I’ve ever seen!

      Spud is coming up to this stage. He’ll have 3MS on Sunday….

    16. Shalee says:

      So that’s what I’m going through… I thought it was peri-menopause, but really it’s 30’s-MS, a rare, but strong grownup strain of the 3MS condition.

      Thanks, Dr. AM!

      Oh the drama. Great picture to show at his wedding.

    18. cce says:

      What’s the pout about? Looks like the photo was taken at Typhoon Lagoon or something, ready to white water raft the rapid in Montana? I love that kids can find a reason to grumble at the most outrageously wonderful times. Their must be some background here we aren’t getting.

      Sitting in Santa Fe at 40 degrees this morning, I just think he looks cold! Still boating in the DFW area, huh? I was sweating through a TCU game two weeks ago… Like how you are doing the watermarks…

    20. Antique Mommy says:

      cce, are you kidding me? There’s no back story. 3YOs don’t need a reason to pout. It’s their perrogative.

    21. YewNorkBabe says:

      Oh My Land! That’s exactly how I feel today too.

      *snort* omg, i’m loving that. great catch with the camera, i must say … i usually get an even more straight-on peeved look when they think i’m photographing their 3MS, lol!

    23. Kelly @ Love Well says:

      No eye contact.

      Arms crossed.

      Lip out.

      Yep, looks familiar. My three-year-old turns four next week. Do you think it will magically go away?!?

      Oh, Antique Mommy…your blog is always good for a giggle! Thank you for sharing your sweet (even while pouting) little boy with us!

    26. Sally says:

      My two teenage daughters still have that look when they don’t get the response from me that they were looking for. Life is rough……..

      You crack me up!

    28. wordgirl says:

      Oh my gosh! Could he get that lip to curl any more than it already is? I doubt it!

      October 11th, 2007 at 12:59 pm

    29. Betty G. says:

      Great shot! Since Halloween is coming up – tell him that Pirates do NOT pout. Maybe that will help. (Did you get his costume made??)

    30. Erin says:

      My husband’s college roommates used to tell him that he got PMS, also known as “Pissy Mikey Syndrome.” And boy, they sure were right! 🙂

    31. Linda says:

      Even when he pouts…what a cutie!

    32. An Iowa Mom says:

      Oh I am soooo glad I have a label to put on my pouty kids now … that somehow seems to justify it for me. 🙂

    33. Kellan says:

      I dunno – I do an awful lot of pouting. What a cute picture!!!

      October 11th, 2007 at 3:15 pm

    34. Sharyn says:

      Clearly he’s grumping in anticipation of the day when he tries to look tough and the first adjective that springs to mind is “adorable.”

    35. Twisted Cinderella says:

      what a cute little pout!

      October 11th, 2007 at 11:07 pm

    36. midlife mommy says:

      Oh my heavens. Been there, more often than I can say. To hear my daughter tell it, or scream/pout/cry it, life is very hard.

    37. Becky says:

      3MS…LMAO!!! Thanks for the laugh. I needed that.

      October 13th, 2007 at 10:31 pm

    38. MamaLady says:

      5MS comes with lots and lots of loud griping, complaining, b&c’ing along with the pouting.
      Ask me how I know? Just take my word for it. I just know.
