Parents do stupid things... (warning: babypictures ahead)

Sometimes, mothers do stupid things. Little things, like forgetting to bring extra diapers when leaving the house. Bigger things, like stepping on small hands or feet. Huge things, like not using a car seat while driving*.

Most of those things go unnoticed. Most of them are forgiven easily. Babies are resilient. And they have short-term memories. And they will love you no matter what. Or will they?

Sometimes, mothers do stupid things. And some of those things will never be forgiven.

I did something stupid yesterday. And I knew it was stupid but went ahead and did it anyway. You guys will hate me for it. Forever. And ever. And ever...

Here's what I did**:

* See? It could've been worse. I ALWAYS use carseats...
** In my defense: it's Carnaval in the Netherlands. You guys would've looked even more silly had I NOT dressed you up funny. Yes, I COULD have dressed you in something that would've made all your little friends jealous, like Pirate costumes, or SuperBaby suits. But no, of course I had to go ahead and get the cutest and most flowery outfits ever made. I'm sorry. I really DO love you guys. But sometimes, mothers just do something stupid...


  1. Oh how cruel! They'll hate you forever. Especially him.

  2. I forgot to add a :)

    They ARE cute. Flowers and all.

  3. Hahahaha! I LOVE IT! They can totally pull it off.

    But yeah, Cathy's right. He's so going to be all "MOOOOOOM!" :)

  4. LOL!!!

    Wait till you pull that pic out at their 16th, 18th or 21st.

    Then they will never forgive you.

    Too cute. :)

  5. You are probably all right. Think it's a good idea to save these pictures for a moment in the future where a little blackmail might be in order? Like, when he refuses to put his dirty socks in the laundrey? Or when she finds herself a biker-boyfriend and wants to elope with him?

  6. Here from ICLW - Cute pictures, but I hope that he doesn't hate you when he is older. Don't show girlfriends in his teen years, or maybe you should to weed them out...

  7. LOL!!!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!! ICLW

  8. How funny! I love it! I totally need to score me cute outfits like those!

  9. Oh how cute!!! I can't wait until my twins are born and I can make them look adorable like that. :-) I'm just hoping to make it to at least 34 weeks. ICLW
