umm seriously?

1 Jul

Parents are having a huge bitch fit over this commercial.  I have no idea why.   Some people are saying it “sexualized” children.

There are three things wrong with that

1. Um no it doesn’t you dumb shit

2.  The kid is supposed to be “cool” that is why they are all staring at him.  Not because he is sexy.

3. The people who think this is sexualizing children are the fucked up ones, I mean really whats going through their head?

You know what sexualized children?  Those fucked up glitz pageants.

If you are making your daughter look like this..then you have some serious issues on your hands.

I think my husband might keel over and die if I dressed my daughter up like this.

Did you know that they have a SWIMSUIT part in these pageants?  Yeah a fucking swimsuit part.   Now I must ask.  Why the hell do they need little girls parading on stage in a swimsuit so they could judge them?  Nothing like telling your daughter hey you’re not pretty enough at 5 years old so lets cake on the make up, do a spray tan, put some fake teeth in your mouth and parade you around in a bathing suit in front of some middle-aged men who are judging the pageant.  It’s incredibly screwed up if you ask me.

Have you noticed that most of the pageant moms are over weight housewives?  Just saying….

The Napkin Dad

30 Jun

I think the best dad award goes to…

Napkin dad

Here is a little excerpt from his blog on how the whole thing started.

“The Napkin Dad Daily began as a series of drawings and quotes on napkins that I put in my daughters’ lunches during their middle and high school years, most every day from 1998 -2004.

I started doing the napkins while I was unemployed and making their lunches for school. I did 3 a day, one for each daughter. After many months I felt sort of depressed because, as funny as it sounds, it was the my main creative outlet, the only artwork I was doing at the time, and they were all being thrown away every day. ‘Oh well’ I said, and went about doing them until the end of the year.
My wife at the time was not happy in the marriage (we later divorced) and took the girls to California to visit her family in the summer, and I was not invited. I was home alone on Father’s day when the girls called to tell me they had hid their presents for me around the house. I walked around the house following their hints and found my oldest’s and my youngest’s presents.
My middle daughter directed me to a bottom drawer somewhere and there I found a napkin she had drawn for me …
and below it…there were all the napkins from the entire year! She had saved every one and given them back to me for Father’s Day. It truly was the best present I ever got, I cried when I found them. She really didn’t, and couldn’t, understand how much it meant to me to have her do that, and to have them still in existence. I continued to draw the napkins for 4 more years, almost every day, until my youngest graduated from High School.
In 2005 I started scanning them little by little and posting them to my flickr.com site, which I had set up for my photographic work but had been posting drawings to as well. The napkins got a great response and I started to consider ways I could get them out to a larger audience. In 2008 I started the blog you see here, the Napkin Dad Daily, and started posting a napkin a day. Eventually I added commentary below some of the napkins, in response to conversations that were going on in the comments, or on flickr.”

I have to say,  This is probably the sweetest story I have ever read.   I didn’t have the best father growing up.

I have a little soft spot for great dads

So many times we get into the rush of life and do not make time to do little things like this for the people we love.  Sometimes a simple note or a “napkin drawing” can make a huge impact.  I remember my mom leaving me notes in my lunch box.  I loved it.  And I really wish I would have saved them.  I think we need to slow down a bit and do the little things like this for our kids or people we love.  My challenge for my self and for others to join me if you would like is to do one nice thing like this daily for someone YOU love.

So Napkin dad I really applaud you for doing this for your girls and being such an awesome dad.  This is something that they will always remember and hopefully pass on to their kids some day.

The Napkin Dad Daily, is in the running in the ‘Most Inspiring’ category People can vote on it until July 12th.

Yes I need to shut my whore mouth

18 Jun

I decided that friday is going to be my rant for the week.  Maybe because im PMSing but I have a lot to bitch about today.    I am going to start with the creepy old man next door.

Dear you creepy old man,

STOP STARING AT ME.  Its fucking creepy.  You don’t even try to hide the fact that you’re staring.  The suspenders are fucking creepy too.  You hide in your house all day until I come outside to smoke and then magically appear in your yard looking at me.  Enough already before I come over there and kick your ass.

Dear neighbor in front of me.

I realise you just had a divorce and are probably going through a major midlife crisis,  But your corvette is not that cool.  We all know you have one.  You do not need to rev your engine in your garage for 45 mins.  WE GET IT.  And quit trying to kiss my ass.  Just because my Father in law kicked your ass doesn’t mean you need to suck up to me and keep trying to be friends.

And last but certainly not least.  My step dad.

Dear sneaky step dad,

I know what you are up to.  Now quit trying to be so damn sneaky.  Karma is going to come after you hard.

Feel free to add your rants in the comments=)
