I don't have cute kids, but I was a cute kid!
I love that Obama went along with that... given the rampant cheating and multi-image posting I had to come back :)
Those are about a year old and this was Halloween that year..
I am dumb and don't know how to make the photos smaller than the versions on the internet, sorry.
In grandma and grandpa's vineyard in Bucharest:
Also, he shreds at Rock Band:
I wouldn't worry about it, the board resizes them anyway. :)
Just got back from a bit of vacation, so what the hell - here's my two entries. 4 1/2 and almost 2.
When I was a kid, we didn't have giant child-eating bubble makers! (jealous)
I know! Do they digest all those tough-to-get-rid-of hard parts too?
Here's mine, aged 10 and 7:
All right sure, those are all cute kids, no doubt about it. But who can withstand the adorable ... Pogue Jr!
Why hel-lo, mister gummy grin and wide-eyed smile! <resists urge to nuzzle screen...barely>
Pro tip: if your child is having a rough day, a splash of bourbon in the sippy cup works wonders:
But in more serious news, is your fireplace a secret gateway to another world... or just a hole right through another room?
That's gotta be seriously the worst design I've ever seen - unless you live somewhere, where it never gets cold. But then, why a fireplace.
Fireplace is in the center of the house, so your fire is enjoyable from two different rooms. It's quite pleasant, actually.
Yeah, I can see how that's nice.
What I cannot make out from the picture is whether it's open or has an insulated glass front. If it's the latter, all i s well, but if it's the former, then it will be sucking more already warmed air out from your house, than it heats.
Where I live the winters are cold and heating is shockingly expensive, so I notice these things. Ymmw.
I also am going to be stealing children from their rightful parents for this. These are my nephews:
Peter at 4 discovering that his Uncle IainC is a soft touch.
And Ben at 18 months just being all cute.
My beautiful niece Ella:
And her brother, Carter the Eternally Surprised:
We got pictures taken this weekend. Here is is with Fozzie, at one of the rail stops, getting ready to find a bite to eat and an honest day's work. At least, if Fozzie can stay out of trouble this time, and if word of what happened in Winslow hasn't reached the Sheriff.
Hardcore. When I tell my kids to go play on the railroad tracks, I don't actually mean it.
Were you twirling your magnificently waxed moustache and adjusting your top hat as the train hurtled towards the unsuspecting victim?
Train had gone by about five minutes before that picture. I figured we had some time before the next one came along.
Or the top hat thing. I think I like that explanation better.
EDIT: And lest anyone think I'm that bad a parent, this is a small town where the train goes by exactly once a day.
Game over, bitches.
ETA: In fairness, since that was a baby photo, I have to post something a little more recent. He looks just a little different now.
I like the lack of certainty in that statement.
And for good measure, the other one:
Those foam block pits used to be really scary when I was that small. I think I usually failed to grasp that there was a bottom.
Wait a minute.
This is just a cleverly renamed "LIKE EVERY POST IN THIS THREAD" thread. You clever bastards.
It's like achievement servers in TF2
This is what happens when you have two snow days and take away their video game privileges:
Every time I see this thread bumped I am compelled to post a recent pic of my kid.
Overalls and newsboy hat, what kind of hipster child are you raising?
That hat, man. The kid is so fly.
He loves that hat. He's the one that insisted on wearing it with the outfit, actually. Hmm, does that mean he's naturally a hipster? :/
You're taking hipster remarks seriously from a guy that obsesses over antiquated shaving gear? ;) Besides, your kid's wearing a flat cap, not a newsboy hat. Crucial difference.
It'd be hipster if he was wearing a trucker hat and oversized 80s-neon-glow sunglasses and had a PBR in hand.
And here they are several years earlier, when the little guy was a few days old... wait for the punchline:
I just want to point out that there's nothing antiquated about my shaving gear and the shaving hipster crowd tends to look down on the stuff I have. A straight razor with disposable blades instead of a vintage straight razor and a synthetic brush instead of a silvertip badger brush. Come on, no self respecting hipster would be caught dead with those!
So when do we start the voting brackets to decide who the cutest is?
this is just the most emotionally balancing thread i have ever known in all of my years
Cute is not always in the face.
Or this one, where the shutter speed of a cell phone camera is fine for everyone in the shot except her.
You don't even need to have both eyes.
