Oh My Flipping God!

Yes, that’s a paint can. Thank Flipping God they aren’t my kids! :)

    This is so funny! I could not pass it by without commenting. Great picture! And yeas than goodness they are not mine either!

    Ha, ha!

    I though they were yours! Their parents had to redecorate a bit, that’s for sure. I can imagine a dialog sequence between dad and mom: “Hey, the kids got dirty! Are we going to wash them, or shall we make some others?”

    LOL! Last year I put together an e-course for parents who want to “Turn down the anxiety/stress at home” - and found this exact image to put in it. It’s such a beauty!

    The wierd thing is, they look exactly like my brother’s kids about 6 years ago. But he won’t admit that this is taken at his house!

    My hope is that the parents in question used the word “flipping” like you did! :)

    Wow… worse I ever did was burn a hole in the carpet. Though, I would still not use the F word. Not that I wouldn’t want to, I just would be utterly speechless.

    I know I’ve seen this picture before… how can you just post a picture on your website, knowing it’s not your’s, without even bothering to cite the original source? You took that picture from somewhere and didn’t even bothering linking to the photographer/father’s page.

    On February 13th, 2007 at 12:58 am, Wendy said:

    “amh” - if I knew the source, I would most certainly link to their page. I got this in a chain email. If you find their source, I would be happy to give credit where credit is due.

    But because that parent posted this picture to the internet and sent it around in a chain email, they should expect to lose track of where it goes.

    And “amh”, if you read my blog, you would know I am not the kind of person who would do that.

    Dear Wendy,

    It’s totally irrelevant that the original poster “should expect to lose track”. In terms of copyright law the person who originally took the
    picture has ownership over that picture.

    It’s equally irrelevant what kind of person you are in terms of copyright.

    My sister and I had done the same thing when I was 4 and she was 3. My folks had just finished rebuilding the inside of our home….and I remember it well. I am sure the ‘F’ word was used.

    On February 13th, 2007 at 8:46 am, Wendy said:

    CopyCoach and “amh” :: there are different laws around images sent all over the world such as this - it’s called public domain. And the Daily Mail, UK’s largest newspaper, seems to agree. And they don’t give credit, either - because they don’t have to, nor are they able to.

    Jeesh! :)

    OMFG this is clearly photoshopped. Dont believe everything you see on the internet.

    On February 13th, 2007 at 11:47 am, Wendy said:

    DeadlyRed - do you have kids? I am both an expert Photoshop user and a mom - this would be extremely difficult to do in PS.

    Plus, with plenty of Desitin wiping under my belt, I can indeed say it looks exactly like a bunch of white, sticky gooey stuff should. ;)

    Hey, that looks like me when i was about that age… a bit cleaner, though.

    On March 9th, 2007 at 1:59 pm, Alex Shalman said:

    Wendy, I’m just curious - in a situation like this, would you beat your kids?

    On March 9th, 2007 at 3:27 pm, Wendy said:

    Define “Beat” specifically…


    On March 9th, 2007 at 3:56 pm, Alex Shalman said:

    Alex Shalman Dictionary>> Beat>> Put child on your lap - take hand - smack the fatty part of child’s buttocks until it turns red and they swear they won’t do it again - 20 times.

    On March 9th, 2007 at 4:00 pm, Wendy said:

    OK, so when I do it 19 times, it’s not “Beating”, right? ;)

    OK, totally kidding, though I will admit that my hand and my kids’ butts have indeed met each other on a few rare deserving occasions…

    On March 9th, 2007 at 4:11 pm, Alex Shalman said:

    I hope you know that I just used a very basic scripted conversation to get you to admit to this act. Dyfus - take Wendy away.

    On March 9th, 2007 at 4:13 pm, Wendy said:

    Hey - How did Dyfus get here so fast?!


    On March 10th, 2007 at 8:17 am, Alex Shalman said:

    Wendy - you are the silliest. Don’t change.

    On March 16th, 2007 at 3:22 pm, Jim said:

    Hmm, I wonder what they would have been if they’d lived to grow up?

    On March 17th, 2007 at 7:46 am, Alex Shalman said:

    Jim - I think the answer is obvious… painters ;)

    On April 17th, 2007 at 5:04 pm, Sarakastic said:

    Kudos to whoever took that picture, they obviously had a much better sense of humor about it than I would have

    On April 17th, 2007 at 9:02 pm, Dan and Jennfer said:

    Oh my gosh! I’ve never seen anything like that!

    Of course Dan said that the real irony there is that the paint will come off of the kids :-) .

    The worst mine ever did was draw a green crayon line around the wall of the entire house at two year old level…
