Vindication!!

AT LAST!! After enduring three years of countless taunts from you nitwits for innocently snapping a photo or two of my son doing embarrassing and/or socially unacceptable things, finally I can get a little reprieve. Turns out I'm not the only one who wants to capture every joyful moment of motherhood on film to share with family, friends, and total strangers on the web.

Shaken Mama is a lady after my own tiny, cold heart. Unlike some of you humorless jerkoffs, she seems to instinctively "get" that, while motherhood is fraught with more penalties and thankless chores than such a noble endeavor should be, a smart parent knows how to find joy in the daily grind--that it's so very, very important to stop and appreciate the journey itself, rather than just trudging grumpily along to the bigger goal, which is, of course, to raise the child to adulthood.

Sometimes "finding joy in the daily grind" translates into "take poop photos and post on the 'net."

And you have that future blackmail all taken care of.

What if I got so high on all this praise that I started STAGING disgusting pictures of my children?

I suspect that won't be necessary, but I'm just saying I'm not above it.

the fetishists are gonna get a huge kick out of that one.

You naive babbler! That picture was obviously Photoshopped. The poop is real, just not the baby.

No wonder men are so screwed up. It's because of mothers like y'all.

Who are you kidding? You'll be lucky if your naughty spawn don't climb a clock tower with a rifle. Come to think of it, so will I.

On the good news side, at least they can't grow up to be Howie Mandell.

OMG this brings back memories...the girl pulling shit out of her diaper and painting the coffee table with it. Unfortunately I couldn't find the camera...

And to think a kid screaming louder than a Marshall stack was what kept me from breaking out the stallion.

Thanks for confirmation of the right decision KB.

Cheers

My mother actually had to sew special outfits for my twins when they were babies that zipped up the back and had tight elastic around each leg to prevent them from EVER reaching their diapers...the little bastards painted the walls and their cribs with the contents of their diapers more than once...

Neptunebaby said...

Ahh, very disgusting, but well documented. You should check out sarcasticmom dot com also. she posts a lot of totally inappropriate child/poop photos too.

ok, i'm throwing this right out there for the general public to know... my mother loves to tell the story about me as a diaper-wearing toddler happily toddling about the house, following the mysterious trail of powdered sugar covered raisins, and EATING THEM along the way...

just don't inform my new husband of this. we're still in the heavily-making-out stage in our newlywed lives. maybe i'll throw that story at him when we become tired of being newlyweds and eagerly yearn for the impending rut called life. better than using the old "i have a headache" routine...

Okay, okay, so I heard of a tale deep in the family archives of me doing this once, but I don't believe it. I mean, really . . me? As if.

OldHorsetailSnake said...

Well why not? I mean....Yech!!

stupormom said...

I gasped at this one. And added SM to my blogroll ;) Wow. I never thought I'd be soooo thankful my weirdo husband passed on his compulsive genes. My kid loathes being dirty ... um, wow. Thanks?!

Your son may need to change his last name when he gets older (assuming you both share the last name "Babble.")
