Now THERE'S the clog!

So I came across this site, which was having a contest for St. Louis's cutest baby. Now, I thought that I was St. Louis’s all time cutest baby and that they should have retired the contest after me, but, whatever, I thought I would look and see how the new crop is. I like cute baby pictures as much as anyone. And then I came across Maddie C. I have no problem with Maddie herself, who seems like a cute, happy lil girl. I have an issue with her parents, who thought that it was all cute to PHOTOGRAPH HER STANDING IN THE TOILET! I mean... come ON people! Am I the only one who is amused but also horrified by this? Both that someone would put her there, and that they would then think it is a good idea to DOCUMENT it and share it with the world? Am I (and I hope this is the case) somehow misinterpreting the picture, and she isn’t actually IN the toilet? What the HELL is going on in the Gateway City since I moved away?

Edit: I couldn’t help myself. I looked at more of the pictures. Tad R. here seems to be in some sort of appliance, perhaps a microwave. Is that worse?
I repeat: what the HELL, people!?!

It just... I don't really have the words. There is not really a part of my brain equipped for that.

Last night I kept thinking Obama was gonna say that he WAS gonna be with a family in St. Louis, but they kept putting their baby in the toilet...

I think it's a dryer, actually....

That was my second guess, but it seems to have a light inside, so I am not sure.

Tad R. looks like he's standing in a dryer. And he's not that cute.

Well, maybe he was just tumbled and fluffed.

hahahaha Oh my dear lord. And the dryer one...wtf? What's next, a baby playing in an abandoned fridge?

It could be worse.

Stefanie feels that that might be a 'before' picture for the toilet one.

So, I also poked around a bit, and in the E-whatever section saw one little girl with a t-shirt that said something like, "sorry boys, I only date rockstars" - on a toddler! And my all time favorite was a little African American toddler boy in a white silk suit with white shoes, with bling and black sunglasses! Too funny.

Are there rules of tzniut for toddlers?

i certainly find the whole thing funny, also horrifying. both sets of parents should be talked to about abuse and neglect. the american academy of pediatrics would have a time with those. i'm pretty laid back (ask stef- i spent months discussing poop with meret, in some of our tamer conversations), but wow- has anyone ever heard of a toilet lock? i hate to be the prude, but everyone's going to be crying to the ambulance guy (that used to be me!) when they find the kid blue and bloated in the can...
