I Never Thought I'd Meet a Girl Like You

Okay, kids. I'm going to put it to you straight. I've been drinking wine at 126 with some friends and I'm a little loopy. It's late and I'm trying to be really careful to edit myself so I don't talk about inappropirate things. Just to be extra, special safe, I'm making this a photo post.

Here is Stinky with bright yellow goggles that make her look like she might have a little chromosonal damage. Shit, that was wrong and bad. I'm sorry. Okay - more pictures, less alcohol induced babble.

In honor of Stinky being on the junior high swim team, I thought I'd do a "Stinky wearing goggles" retrospective. Since she's always been into accessories, goggles seem to be the logical choice to dress up any of her Summer outfits. In this picture, it looks like she got the eyewear covered, but forgot to put in her teeth.

I realize that her head is cut-off in most of these, but when she was younger, she tended to walk toward the camera the minute she saw it - just to make sure we got close enough to see up her nostrils.

Now that she's older, I had to threaten to ground her in order to get her to pose. I'm still on the look-out for a book that converts my bad parenting into therapy sessions. Something that would equate it like this: making my child take self-esteem crushing photos for my amusement = twelve years of aggressive therapy.

As always, I apologize for the glaring typos and grammatical errors - my editor's drunk too.

I am so pleased my dear old mum has no idea what the internet is, let alone blogs otherwise I'd be utterly screwed. that said I manage to post enough embarrassing photos of myself that perhaps the damage would be limited even if pictures of little me appeared online. How much worse could it get?

You do realise that one day, when you're old and helpless, daughters 1 and 2 are going to exact a terrible revenge for this merciless posting of childhood photos?

I love the goggle photos and have been trying to amass a collection of my own boys in goggles because they are adorable. I'm glad to know I'll have a use for all the goggle photos someday.

Mr Atrocity,

You never know, your mother could have a secret blog she doesn't tell you about devoted to posting embarrassing childhood pictures of you.

And, yes. I am well aware what my golden years will look like. I'm sure it will be similar to the scene in Tommy when he gets sent to stay with cousin Kevin.


There is always a use for embarrassing pictures of your children. Their importance becomes more evident, the closer to puberty they get.

Sometimes I can't help but laugh when I imagine E discussing me with his therapist later in life.

Yeah, I feel that way about my girls too. Only I usually laugh until I cry.
