Why I Will Never Be Invited to the Neighborhood MOMS Group: A Photo Essay

When you have a Demon Baby, you have two choices. Crush his spirit, or embrace his spirit.

I chose the latter. Thus my free-spirited child is always naked. And this top photo is the most G-Rated pose I could capture him in. He is sitting on the couch, with the window open. Moments after this photo was taken he leaned out the window and screamed to all the birds and squirrels to come on in the house and have lunch with him. He was quite loud.





This second photo was his hiding, just in case a squirrel decided to come in and have lunch with him and instead decide to bite his little rear end. I guess the reality of rabid squirrels indoors gave him pause.
Now, look at my picture window.
Essentially, Demon Baby is mooning my entire neighborhood.
Note: I am not friends with anyone in my neighborhood. I am pretty sure they think I am the "weird" mom.
And perhaps . . . they do not appreciate being mooned.

Not only would I happily invite you to the neighborhood Mom group, but Demon Baby would be welcome to come over and run around naked anytime. That's a big problem with the world. No sense of humor. Sheesh.

You would SO be president of MY MOMS CLUB. (even though I don't have one)

Robin:
Aww . . . we could be the cool moms group.

(In general, the moms in here really do seem to shun me. Maybe it's because in summer Demon Baby pees on the lawn. Who knows?)

I'm reading a novel that has a bit of a Demon Baby in it. (No one can live up to Demon Baby.) He's a Batman instead of a Ninja. I keep laughing and thinking of you two!

I think you're an awesome mom. I wish you were in my studio!

Naked boys and squirrels do not go well together because of the obvious nut correlation.

Hi Spy:
I have a post about his Sunday School teacher tomorrow. :-) Yes, he takes getting used to.

LOL! I had the same thought myself.

If that 1st picture isn't a winner for a Coppertone QT ad, I don't know what is.

pita:
LOL! His dad is Hispanic, so in summer, he gets super brown . . . and makes a perfect ad for sunscreen.

Looks like I'll have to get in line to bite his little tushy! (from the squirrels, of course)
