Honey, look what I brought home! – Wordless Wednesday

Yes, I know how totally creepy this picture looks (and how weird you must think we are for stuffing our kids in bags – nope, it’s not the first time LOL). Rest assured, no children were harmed in the making of this picture and no, this was not Photoshopped in any way. Ava really was in the bag with just her head sticking out (for about as long as it took me to snap this picture). Then she got out … and Julian got in. 😉 The things we do to entertain ourselves around here. 😛

  1. That is hysterical. My kids loved to do stuff like that when they were smaller. I have a great shot of the two of them shoehorned (together) into a fairly small cardboard box. No idea why they got in, but they certainly had fun with it.

  2. we have one of anna, naked, about 2 years old, in a large rabbit cage that we were photographing to sell…we ended up posting it on Craigslist with a caption “child not included” hoping no one would report us to child services. I swear she looked like she was at Guantanamo…but she really wanted to be in the picture, and the naked, well, it was summer and that’s just how she was!

  3. This is really cute! I think it is funny how much has changed in 30ish years or so…whenever we do anything like this, there is the immediate need to say “we didn’t FORCE them,” or “they didn’t get hurt, i swear!” as if we KNOW there will be some jerk out there just waiting to accuse of being insensitive and cruel parents!

    About 30 years ago, when I was a little older than Ava, we didn’t have a pool, or access to one, so my mom filled black lawn bags with hose water, stuck us (my younger brother and I) in it standing up and tied the bags shut at our necks! She certainly did not feel the need to explain it to the neighbors :)And of course, we were also one of the last generations to ride in the back of the station wagon with no seat belts or car seats, either! Yikes!

    It is just interesting how much more aware we are of the perceptions of others nowadays.

    I say, go ahead and stuff your kid in a bag…looks like she loved it!
