    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. πŸ™‚

    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.

    • Megan says:

      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).

  3. caleggs says:

    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…

  4. Tanya says:

    I love this!! It is just so natural.. not photo shopped, or anything else… just kids being creative kids!

  5. TerryLeeForever says:

    It’s so funny that people are commenting on the lion costume instead. LOL

  6. Daisy says:

    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!

  7. thetallamy says:

    totally a grrrrrrrreat picture for the SR. yearbook!

  8. beerjudge says:

    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.

  9. LindsayLu says:

    I have a feeling these pictures will resurface when these boys start dating.

  10. jenniep says:

    what got me was the pacifier on the floor, you know the little guy launched it to say “Ohooooooooooo!!!!!!”

  11. Tim says:

    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

  12. binkymae says:

    “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)

  13. Tamara says:

    Hey! Even some of us adults play with these about every month!!!

    • Tamara says:

      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.

  14. J says:

    We have had similar fun in our home. ugh

  15. Emily says:

    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.

  16. j0009 says:

    Ahaha that’s amazing, I totally want that lion costume.

    • nite owl says:

      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.

  17. cynthia says:

    I told mom never to take pictures of me on the internet when i’m high on play-dough! Darn it!

  18. Ninjacat says:

    Edward Tampon-hands

    I’m surprised nobodys come up with that

  19. kandee says:

    and just where are the ones with WINGS?

  20. Ima Biznatch says:

    kids are amused by anything… oh to be a kid again

  21. Corbin says:

    Ok, this made my day.

  22. Cuddlebutt says:

    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!

    • terri says:

      My husband used to use his sisters pads for mattress for GI Joe.

    • elizabeth says:

      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!!!

  23. K.J says:

    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. πŸ™‚

  24. SeΓ±or_Citizen says:

    Let’s just hope their “timing’s” off.

  25. Karen says:

    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?

  28. Cee says:

    Have a happy period!

  29. doggiekittymama says:

    Sticky situation. More original than playing with the box something came in.

  30. Rev says:

    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!

  31. Tishomingo says:

    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.

  32. Jeff M. says:

    I’d be lion if I didn’t say when you play with these things, there are some strings attatched

  33. Maya B says:

    Oh man, I’m so glad I don’t have kids…

  34. Future ad men for Tampax.

  35. Jessica says:

    I have these same kind of pictures with my daughter!!!! One is on the buffet in my living room

  36. Richard Davies says:

    I fear for their sanitary.

  37. Uncle J says:

    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.

  38. joaniebaloney83 says:

    You can almost hear the little boy on the right saying “Ooooooooooooo! Cool!!!!!!!”

  39. Ellen says:


  40. Deb says:

    It’s the lion costume that elevates this from merely awkward to mystically inexplicable…

  41. Chris says:

    Did she put the lion costume on before or after she made the claws?

  42. APRIL says:

    omg that is so cute!!

  43. Christopher says:


  44. cowgirl says:

    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!!!!!!!

  45. Jill says:

    The looks on their faces are priceless!

  46. Cindy says:

    O.M.G! LOVE the expression on the little boy. And man, that lion has some looonnngggg claws!

  47. CaliBelle says:

    I love how excited the younger boy looks. πŸ™‚

  48. Pete says:
