This One Kills Me

This picture exhibites several reasons why I am a terrible mother.

1) I let my son play in a public fountain in his underpants.

2) It cracks me up that it looks like he is peeing.

3) I posted this picture on the internet.

  1. Nah. It just shows that you’re letting your kid be a kid. Now, if you let Gabe do that, I’d start to worry.

  2. OH MY GOSH, that is so hilarious! I laughed so hard!

  3. Nah, it just means you have a sense of humor!

  4. Public underwear shots don’t put you in the terrible mother category until they are at least 7 and their face is attached.

    Just sayin’.

  5. You aren’t a terrible mom, at all! I did think he was peeing and thought it was great that you got it on film!

    He’s having fun…so it sounds to me like he’s got one heck of a mom!

  6. If that makes you a terrible mother then I feel that I must be a terrible person, because I find it funny too.

    But he does look like he’s having fun.

  7. *snigger* peeing in a fountain… funny…

    even if he isn’t it is still funny.

  8. I, too, fall under the terrible mother catagory because I, too, find that both hilarious AND perfectly acceptable.

    BRAVO Capt’n Underpants!

  9. I see your “wearing underwear in public as a child” and raise you “wearing pajamas in public as an adult.”

  10. Nah! It looks like that famous statue in Brussels…Manneken Pis.

    Your photo is art and don’t let anyone tell you differently. Especially not a Belgian.

  11. Only missing the sound effects of the grunt and the ‘Oh, MAAAAAN, I’ve been holdin’ that in forEVER, WHOOOOOOOO!’

    Also, for your viewing pleasure…

    I’d have that blown up to 16 x 20, framed and then I’d hang it prominently in the foyer or over my fireplace. I actually think it shows you are a great mom that is in touch with her young son. I’m a little bit jealous that I can’t run through a public fountain in my skivvies without getting arrested :o)

  13. I would so do exactly the same thing.

    Good job mama

    1. For letting your son play under the fountain in his underwear

    2. For capturing an embarrasing moment on camera

    3. For posting it on the internet so we could all have a good chuckle.

  14. 1. He isn’t hot and crabby – and his clothes are dry

    2. At least he isn’t squating to take a dump

    3. Thank You

  15. I particularly like the arched back. He’ll pose just like in another 60 years too.

  16. Oh, the “looks like he’s peeing” pictures…I thought only I was that immature…apparently I have company! How old is too old to run around the public waterpark in your undies? My kid would still run around naked if I let him, and he’s six…I don’t know if he’ll ever grow out of that one!

  17. And you’ve just demonstrated several reasons why we love you.

  18. he has clothes on. I’ll see you and raise with getting naked in the public fountain. Not me.

  19. I more thought he looked like an old foagie all sticking his belly out.

  1. […] So you, if you knew me in high school – welcome. You may be wondering what the hell I am doing with seven blogs and why so many people read me every day. The truth is that I don’t know. I like to think that I am witty but it is far more likely that people just like to know that somebody is worse at this parenting thing than they are. […]
