I am back from the dead and what better way to celebrate than to kill myself in the 30 Days of Photographs III challenge, hosted by Ziva and MikeWJ. Today’s prompt is stalker.

You would think that being stalked by the Black Death would be terrifying, but it wasn’t. You see, for the last five years, I have been stalked by something far more terrifying. Every time I turn around, he’s there. Watching me. Demanding my love and attention. And waffles. Work is the only place I can go and find peace. Is it any wonder I love my job?

little boy, red hat, tree

Many have been fooled by his adorable face, charmed by his endearing smile, fallen in love with his big blue eyes…but trust me, he’s evil.

To see who else is looking over their shoulders today, check out the links over at Ziva’s blog.

  • Great idea – darling little stalker!

  • Glad that you are back with us – even if in ghostly form. You have the best stalker EVER! I’ll take Max any day any time. Just bring him on down to me. Oh, I guess you can stay for a visit too…

  • Geez, they start young in your family don’t they.

  • Awwwwwwww! Of course he’s evil, he takes after you! But such a sweet little devil..

  • Tami Von Zalez

    Yes, the elusive love bug waffle stomper. Must watch out for them.

  • If anybody has to be stalked, Max is the guy to do it. He could stalk us any old day! I’m glad you are better!

  • He is so cute!!! I am sure most people wouldn’t mind being stalked by Max.

  • I do not believe you. He looks positively angelic πŸ˜€

  • Awwwwwwwwwwwww! Totes ADORBZ!

  • MikeWJ

    This is a great photo — your best yet, I think — but Max looks like the sort of kid who would flip the bird at passing police cars. Maybe you should put him up for adoption or something before he murders you in your sleep. Or demands extra waffles. I hate making waffles. Or pancakes. In fact, I hate making breakfast foods in general, even bacon. It’s just a messy hassle. Which is a little off topic, but I think you get my point.

  • Coco

    Awwwwww… sweetest stalker you have!

  • What an adorable stalker! They are fun except when we are trying to go to the bathroom. One day I hope to find privacy again. LOL

  • Paula Wooters

    I wish all my stalkers looked like Max!

  • ladyV

    i know that’s right. my stalker is closer to me than my shadow.

  • Thanks, Pat – but don’t be fooled by that innocent face! He strikes fear into the hearts of warriors!

  • You might be a little more enthusiastic about inviting me to stay too, LM, after you spend 5 minutes listening to him chatter away at you in French! πŸ™‚

  • Young? Why, at his age I was already… um… never mind.

  • A sweet little devil? Well, then he only takes after me a little bit πŸ™‚

  • Ah, you understand, Tami. Nobody ever believes me when I warn them of the danger!

  • Thanks, hon! Still a little lacking in energy, but I’m getting there. Btw, did you notice the hat Max is wearing in the pic? πŸ™‚

  • Really? Which people? Do you have names and addresses for these people? πŸ™‚

  • The key word there is “looks”, Babs. πŸ™‚

  • Yup, and he knows it! πŸ™‚

  • Yep, I try to outrun mine before they wake up.

  • Tell the truth, the reason you like this pic so much is because you recognized the vagina-tree, didn’t you? And Max looks nothing like the kind of kid who would flip off passing police cars – what kind of monster would *do* that?!?!

    I get your point. πŸ™‚

  • Don’t you believe it, Coco! He’s a devil πŸ˜‰

  • If you find it, Junebug, please let me know where it was hiding! πŸ™‚

  • Be careful what you wish for, Boom Boom! πŸ™‚

  • Sigh. I know, Lady V. It’s been years since I’ve seen my own shadow!

  • Non! Il est mignon, et je suis faible. Actually my kids chatter at me incessantly so he would probably just blend into the noise. I’ve learned to tune out all but the most important stuff, like when blood is involved or the police.

  • Danielle Batog

    I used to call my little ‘stalker’ the velcro kid…but stalker would have been more appropriate…now that she is 18 she has little to do with Mom anymore ;)…heck she even feeds herself now πŸ˜‰

  • πŸ™‚

  • OMG! That’s his SF hat! I wish he was here right now!

  • Welcome back! I’m glad you’re feeling better. I’ve got a kid stalker, too, though he’s 23 and not underfoot at the moment. Max is the most adorable stalker I haven’t seen.

    In my experience, kid stalkers can be more challenging than the black death. : )

  • It’s much easier with the teenagers. They don’t wake up until 1 in the afternoon.

  • Is it wrong that I envy you? None of mine will leave me alone. Ever. And they can feed themselves????? Since when?????

  • Thanks Lauren. Actually, Max has 2 big brothers and they stalk me when he doesn’t. They’re like tag-team stalkers. And yes, more … challenging… than black death πŸ™‚


  • Ha ha ha!

  • He ate them all, Katherine. See what I mean about being evil? πŸ™‚

  • Mais, je suis trΓ¨s impressionnΓ©, LM! Je vais te lui envoyer aujourd’hui, d’abord! Bonne chance πŸ™‚

  • So does he! So do I!! πŸ™‚

  • How old are they?

  • 18 and 15. And bigger than me. πŸ™‚

  • It’s tough looking up to a kid with the height advantage and saying, “Go to your room!”

  • That’s one stalker I wouldn’t mind watching my every move. Okay, that’s not true. It probably would get annoying after awhile. But that’s when I’d simply say, “Um, don’t you have a Mommy who’s probably wondering where you are right now?”

  • Perfect! I had never thought of our children as stalkers…more like prison warden’s, but stalkers works too. Although in your case, the big blue eyes kind of make it more acceptable. Mine are big and not the least bit charming, and they stink, so being stalked is not charming in the least.
