Who needs toys?
(submitted by Megan)
It’s 3:30 in the morning here and I’m just about asleep, but it makes me want to hunt down on a picture of my naked 2 1/2 year old daughter (you can’t see anything). I do remember I titled it, “All Stickered Up”. While I was on the phone I gave her some paper and stickers to play with and she went in the room and stripped and stuck a sticker on almost every part of her body she could reach – even over her eyes!!! Kids…on days when you want to strangle them it’s nice to remember some of the funny things.
Uh, really folks, the older child is a girl. Take a good look at her face, bangs, and the part of her red shirt that is showing.
Actually, they are both boys. The older one is around 4 1/2 and the younger one is around 1 when this was taken. They are my nephews. My sister happened to walk in to see this (not Halloween).
My 3 yr. old came out of the bathroom with maxi pads on his feet and said, “look mom, I’m going skiing!” the innocence of a child…
I love this!! It is just so natural.. not photo shopped, or anything else… just kids being creative kids!
It’s so funny that people are commenting on the lion costume instead. LOL
I think what I love most about these pictures, is A.) that it takes NO explanation to understand what’s going on B.) They are utterly priceless and later, humiliating and C.) The stories that invariably are spawned from them.
I just read ALL the comments, and laughed so hard I scared the dog off the bed.
Pic = LOL
Pic + comments = ROFLMAO!
Isn’t this web site great! Much cheaper than therapy! LOL
totally a grrrrrrrreat picture for the SR. yearbook!
Reminds me of when I was using my mom’s birth control pill case as a Star Trek communicator. Those pictures have happily not appeared.
now there’s my laugh for the day! hilarious! I can see how it would look Trekky
such a shame! We so want to see them!
Now THAT! is freakin’ awesome. Combine that with a bluetooth earpiece, man you’re in business for real now.
There are pictures??? Hello… You should send them in! I would DIE to see that!
Beerjudge,at least you wre bright enough to just use it as a communicator.My ex-husband’s brother found their mom’s birth control and fed it to the cat.he thought they were kiddie mints.
Oh I just flat out ate them, they had a sweet coating on them
I have a feeling these pictures will resurface when these boys start dating.
I would really like to see a picture of that day.
what got me was the pacifier on the floor, you know the little guy launched it to say “Ohooooooooooo!!!!!!”
Holy crap I can’t stop laughing at this.
I hope the parents of these kids keep this picture in a safe place until these boys, particularly the youngest, turn 21, so it can be shown to all their friends at the party! hahaha
“OK Freddy I will help you with your Luke costume and your lightsaber, but first I need to get my claws to stay on with these bandaids. It will look just like lion paws when I get through.”
( I love that the little one got so excited he dropped his pacifier on the floor)
Hey! Even some of us adults play with these about every month!!!
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that us girls would polish our boots with tampons in basic training. They work great! No really, I’m not kidding.
We have had similar fun in our home. ugh
I used to shoot tampons out of the applicator all the time when I was little…like until age 9…never played with pads, though.
Ahaha that’s amazing, I totally want that lion costume.
My son showed me the individually wrapped tampon and asked what it was…he was about 8. I went into this long explanation, saying they were for grown up ladies only, yadda yadda and finally he said “I just wondered what they tasted like!” He thought they must be snacks, since all the special kid treats come individually wrapped! Once he found out they weren’t for eating, he lost interest, to say the least.
My step son also found one when he was 4 or 5…he thought it was a candy bar!
My six year old daughter came to me with a tampon applicator and asked, “Is this big enough to be a totem pole?”
Seems her first grade teacher had instructed the class to scavenge for items around the house to use in their Native American diorama.
I told mom never to take pictures of me on the internet when i’m high on play-dough! Darn it!
I’m surprised nobodys come up with that
and just where are the ones with WINGS?
They flew away, of course.
kids are amused by anything… oh to be a kid again
Ok, this made my day.
This reminds me of a story my boyfriend told me. He and his brother took his mother’s tampons and played “war” with them. It seems they make great rockets and sticks of dynamite and/or grenades. Of course, they did not know what they really were!
My husband used to use his sisters pads for mattress for GI Joe.
oh my goodness, I swear my husband is related to yours. He did the same thing! You know what else my husband does with these…..shotgun barrel cleaners!! haha! So I asked them is slim fit a .410, regular a 20 gauge and super a 12 gauge……he said you mean THOSE come in sizes!!!! He was baffled!!!
I hear they’re also useful for stopping up a nose bleed. A friend who used to be an athletic trainer taught me that one.
Your comment made me laugh out loud!
Oh heavens. That would be very hilarious/awkward to walk in on your kids like this.
I’m sure they will loathe this photo when they become teens.
Let’s just hope their “timing’s” off.
My son and two of his little buddies did something similar when they were about 3. I go into my family room and see an entire $15 Sam’s club package of Always with Wings attached to my sliding glass doors. I asked them what they were doing and they told me, “playing airplanes.” I had to laugh…what else could I do?
Karen, that story is priceless! Thanks for that laugh.
Were they sliding the glass doors back and forth going “Vroom! Vroom! Eeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrr!”
Sorry that’s just too funny and cute.
Well, they do have wings. Kids are creative.
It’s only after I read your comment that it actually registered in my mind what was really awkward about this picture. Am I slow or just too much of a man?
reeeaaally slow, man
Have a happy period!
This needs to be a greeting card now
I second that!
The new tampax multipax comes in Light, Regular, Super, and Lion
Sticky situation. More original than playing with the box something came in.
The fact that one of the kids is dressed in a costume leads me to believe that he is showing off all the cool treats he got on Halloween. Yum!
Wonderful photo ! This has probably happened to every Mom out there, but this woman caught it in a snapshot. And the kids are not mugging at the camera; they are totally into their little Lightdays-Tampon Game. I love it.
I’d be lion if I didn’t say when you play with these things, there are some strings attatched
That was so excellent!
Winnah! Winnah! Can’t touch this!!! LOL!!!
That is the A-#1 Comment!!! You win!!!
Oh man, I’m so glad I don’t have kids…
Yes..because the all get into your stuff!
Future ad men for Tampax.
I have these same kind of pictures with my daughter!!!! One is on the buffet in my living room
I fear for their sanitary.
Took me minute to get that! LOL!!!
Sweet cracker sandwich, that’s a winner!!!!
Don’t worry Richard…they have napkins
Yeah, they’ll be fine…although they may end up getting kinda cranky every 28 days or so!
That is hilarous! Mom’s just glad they didn’t come running out with those when there was visitors.
The 60+yr. old guy on talk radio mentioned his Mom was called to school when he was in the 3rd grade because he was blowing up condoms like balloons.
You can almost hear the little boy on the right saying “Ooooooooooooo! Cool!!!!!!!”
It’s the lion costume that elevates this from merely awkward to mystically inexplicable…
Did she put the lion costume on before or after she made the claws?
omg that is so cute!!
And the cowardly lion says to the “young man in training”………. Son, when you see a woman with one of these in her hand……… RUN!!!!!!!
Advice from a wise lion! LOL
The looks on their faces are priceless!
Especially the boy. Oooh!
O.M.G! LOVE the expression on the little boy. And man, that lion has some looonnngggg claws!
I love how excited the younger boy looks.
seriously?! a lion costume? was this some post halloween fun? what the….
Kids love costumes regardless of whether it is Halloween or not.
Very true! My niece practically lived in her cow costume when she was 5
I, for one, used to wear my favorite Halloween costumes as often as possible.
Post a picture of that — it would fit right in here lol
My son lived in a Batman costume for 2 years. When he outgrew it, he got a new one. WITH MUSCLES! I always crack up when I see a kid in a store wearing a cape.
OOH, FINGER PUPPETS!
Was it Tinkerbell? It may have been my niece. That’s her typical Weds.
The lion costume is as cute as the “toys” I love kids in costumes! My son wore Superman every day for MONTHS! Then it was the Spiderman halloween costume, then the Thing costume we found at a garage sale. Grocery shopping to the park etc, LOVE IT
