Holy shit-buckets! I struggle with this on many levels but none of which have anything to do with the gender bending of a daddy-daughter swap.

First, the name 'daddy-daughter swap' just sounds illegal.

Secondly, someone has more time on their hands and disposable income than me and the fact that they choose to do this with those resources is downright frustrating.

I'm mainly offended that someone has the inclination to spend good money on a suit coat/blazer as a kids dress up item. (Oh, I hope that was from Goodwill.)

And what father would put on a baby tee with his tutu as opposed to just going full-on-girly and donning a pastel leotard?! Everyone knows baby tees are for tweens and heavy-set women who land on Maury Povich or Jerry Springer.

Let it be known that if I ever go out and purchase enough tulle to make a tutu for my husband, it'll be time for me to get a job or seek therapy. It would also be really odd since we have 2 boys. BUT my oldest did get his nails painted purple at his preschool Fall festival on Thusday so maybe he will be a card-carrying, tutu-wearing little she-fella sometime and I could relive my glory days as bestie to a slew of sweet queens.

Happy Halloween! What is Junior dressing as this year?

I just love this photo, and that damn Parenting magazine keeps sending me their latest issue. I did not see this picture, for sure. Menaissance, here we come!

I think the baby tee was what unnerved me too. And the bow. Some of Chuck's friends play dress up with their little girls but this just...I don't know if I have the right words.

Junior's going as a dragon.

So I guess it's okay that my teenage son went as a girl?

Jeanne said...

I'm troubled.

That's all I'll say.

Yeah. No. Just, no.

I don't believe I'd ever be able to boink my husband again if I saw him in a tutu.

In defense of adoration—even in the deli line

The toddler was all over his mother. Cam and I were in line at the deli at Mulletville Lite's town grocery store, watching the lov...
