I have one of THOSE kids...

May 12, 2008
WARNING: May not be suitable for...well, it just might not be suitable...just remember...I WARNED YOU!

So I never thought I would have one of THOSE kids...you know the ones...the kids that, as the OTHER parent, you laugh and think in your head...I will never have a kid like THAT!


No not me...my kids weren't going to be dirty, or have bare feet...uugghh...or be disrespectful to their elders...



My kids were going to be perfect! They would be those kids that everyone looked at and smiled at, and thought to themselves...aaahhhh, such cute PERFECT kids...not like that kid, and then they would point to him...



Yes...him...the kid with a PLUMBER'S CRACK...they would shake their heads and be ashamed at the sight! Who would buy their kids swim trunks TOO big...(hello...me here...let me answer that...the kind of parent that let's their kids wear hand-me-downs from their cousin...because it saves me what? $10.00?)...back to the point at hand...




So to give THAT kid some credit...he did attempt to keep up his shorts...he did...he really, really did! They were waiting for the water...and then boom...all thoughts of keeping the shorts up went bye, bye...


As he, in child free spirit, enjoyed the moment...like we should...live in the moment...I mean who cares



Laugh.play. drink. in the sun and the fun...



Oh Hey...little PeePs...Enjoying yourself??? Of course you are waving at your Daddy...not paying any attention to the crazy lady yelling your name to smile at the big black camera...why...why...must I scream, why don't you smile and wave at Mommy?...anyhow...what was I saying?

Then the waiting again...and so I remind him...because, well I must...because I am the parent...

"Hey, DCar, pull up your shorts!"

And then the water comes...and then all thoughts of being the PERFECT kid slips away...

He must frolick and play...


and lose himself in the pure enjoyment of the water shooting out of the sidewalk!!!

Oh come on now...did you have to do that...crap, I am going to have to admit it huh...I HAVE one of THOSE kids...

Do I lose points as a parent or something? Is there some protocol I must go through to redeem myself because guess what...I secretly laughed...I did...I laughed and laughed because those darn shorts would not stay up and he could've cared less...he had no modesty...and I loved it...I love him...and I get to claim him. :) hahaha!

That is awesome! I am so embarrassed for you.... just kidding. That is one good thing about diapers. As soon as you start wearing undies, out comes the crack.

My maiden name is Robinson.... maybe we are related somehow.

Hahahaha.. that made me laugh! My kid is barely one and I've already had those moments when I've thought... didn't I'd say I'd never be one of those mom's.. and let my kid have a crusty snot nose for more than 10 seconds!? Gross.

(Kelly said)They look like they are having a blast! What fun pics! I know what its like when your kid ignores you when you want a picture. Emmy always purposely turns her head when we take pictures! Well we just got back from San Diego so you will have to check out our blog- but I haven't done it just yet. Okay, so Thursday is great. Is it for sure? Let me know. I hope I get to see you!

PS Loved the post about moms. I guess I can attribute my spunk to Gram R too.

I think he just looks like a kid being a kid! Barefoot and dirty are perfect little boy things to be (and the crack, well that never really goes away, right?)

I have to say, I do get frustrated by other people's kids when they are disrepectful or foul-mouthed, but never for just being kids!
