The Parenting Game: Round 3

today is a do-nothing day, which makes it a perfect day to play the parenting game.

for those of you who are either here for ICLW or are new followers to my blog, let me explain... as an infertile, it's really easy to look at the people around us who are parents, but obviously shouldn't be, like the crackhead mommy or the teenage i-want-to-have-a-baby-so-i-can-play-house floosy who gets knocked up at prom, and get really, really pissed off. i like to keep things pretty light here (minus my hormotional rants), so i've gathered a collection of pics of bad parents. the point of the game is to make a comment about what would make you a better parent than the idiot in the pic, but without stating the obvious. sarcasm is the language of choice here, so don't hold back!

 i'd be a better parent than this one, because if i was going to feed my kid to wild animals, i'd pick something much more ferocious...like a hippopotamus!

now it's your turn!

I'd be a better parent because if I were trying to entice rabid raccoons to eat my toddler, I'd use better bait than bread. Please... everyone knows raccoons prefer apples over bread.

LOL I'm not good with sarcasm, but I do love your comment on that! Got to love parents who seem to be lacking some brain cells ;)

I'd clearly be a better parent because I'd feed my child to the raccoons feet first so all the blood didn't rush to their head.

I would be a better parent than this because I'd make sure my kid was in their play clothes, not their school clothes...

Dude, raccoons are vicious.

New Year Mum said...

Love the idea but not feeling very witty today & brain not working from all these bloody hormones... will join in next time :)) Thank you for your gorgeous comment on my blog xoxo

I obviously would be a better parent because rather than dangling my child to feed the raccoon, i'd get little Junior a raccoon of his very own and I'd let him sleep with it each and every night. I believe children's whims should be encouraged and supported fully.

Liz said...

I'd be a better parent because I would dip my child in peanut butter and fill his pockets with garbage (raccoons always raid the trash) in order to better entice the little critters. Then my arms wouldn't get so tired from holding the bait for so long!

Good luck TOMORROW! I can't believe how quickly that happened. When do you get your first beta?

Marianne said...

LOL! Hilarious comments! I love your blog! Thanks for following mine! I will be following yours!

I'd be a better parent than him because I'd feed BOTH my children to the raccoons, not just one, so that it would be fair.

Cathleen said...

I'd be a better parent by sticking both his food filled hands in there, dummy! I'm really enjoying your blog, it adds humor to my self-pity party :-). Thanks!

Liz said...

Found this and had to share: http://mybadparent.com/

They add a picture every day!

You made me laugh and this pic makes me want to cry! There might be a reason why these racoons are behind a wall? ICLW #150

Rebecca said...

LOL. I'd be a better parent than this because I would never have let my kid do this without a helmet and eye protection!

Amanda said...

Unbelieveable!! Someone sent me an email the other day with this picture, and about 10 others in it, and it got me so mad. It was supposed to be funny, but obviously my IF brain overthought it and got so frustrated!

mamscales said...

Wow! I really needed a laugh and you gave it to me. I'm dealing with one of these right now in the family, apparently illicit drugs are secretly a fertility aid?!?

Kerrik said...

Just found your blog through ICLW, and had a good giggle looking at that awful photo. My earnest hope is that it is photoshopped, but I doubt it.

P.S. I'm now a follower!

Lindsay said...

Thank you for stopping by - that is an awesome positive. I hope it is your only one!

KellyAnne said...

I'd be a better parent because I would never let my son out with hat hideous hat! I'd also hold him by his toes to get that extra inch in.

Maria said...

I'd be a better parent these these douches, because this is obviously just a tease for the poor kid. Let him run around and play in there with the ferocious, long-nailed, furry animals for a little while! Sheesh!

Kim said...

I wouldn't be a better parent. Obviously, this man is pulling the poor boy out of the raccoon invested parkland. I would in fact be throwing a few of mine in. Oh, but I would be feeding the raccoons wheat bread, not white- as it appears they are using. White bread is so unhealthy for wildlife.
