Crying Baby Photo Contest

crying baby contestSo my favorite local radio station is hosting a Crying Baby Photo Contest.  When I heard the announcement I immediately turned up the volume to hear all about it!

The contest: post your best crying baby photo!

Immediately I knew the photo I wanted to submit!

Back in 2009, I was watching Amy’s girls and I took them to a local kids play place for the day.  Her youngest, Jordyn, was only 4-months old, so I was wearing her in a Baby Bjorn.  At some point, Jordyn got MAD and like any super nice human being I took a photo!  It’s a self-portrait of Jordyn screaming and looking like she is going to punch me in the face!

Unfortunately I don’t qualify.  The baby must be no older than three years old TODAY, Jordyn just turned 4 :( I think that is the stupidest rule!  The rule should be the child can’t be older than three IN THE PICTURE!

I’m not happy because I know we would have won!

Freakin’ annoying.

Stupid rules.

Not that I’m bitter or anything?!

What are your thoughts?  Think Jordyn & I could have won the grand prize?  Do you have any fun screaming photos of your kids?!



Last night I posted on the DJ’s Facebook page my complaint about the rule….Here’s the response I got…

My complaint and Bender's initial response....

My complaint and Bender’s initial response….


So like any bitter-I’m always right person would do, I responded back INCLUDING the small print of THEIR rules…

Trying to prove Bender wrong....

Trying to prove Bender wrong….


Will my plea work?  Was I right and Bender was wrong?  Now we wait to hear his response….fingers crossed that I just can’t read and we can still submit the photo (by 5pm tonight!)…..but I’m pretty certain I am right.  I always am, after all…

Stay tuned….


I’m happy to announce that I was right and the rules did state that the child must be 36months or younger TODAY and not in the photo.  Bender responded and apologized for providing the wrong information.  That helped…a little.

Yep, I was right...

Yep, I was right…

Well in the end I DIDN’T enter the contest.  BUT I did get to “talk” to Bender….

    I totally agree. NOT FAIR!!! It shouldn’t matter how old the kid is now. Especially since she just turned 4 a couple weeks ago. Boo!!

    It shouldn’t matter how old the kid is – they all scream and it’s never fun!! Their rules are definitely misleading!

    What a funny contest! It’s too bad you couldn’t enter, it is a cute pic. I have a couple crying baby pics of my kids too but they are too old now as well.

      Silly rule!! I think the child IN the picture should be under 36months…why does it matter how old she is today?!
