The Parenting Game: Round 5

it's time for my favorite game!!! this will have to tide you all over until i get home from visiting my hubby. ;)

for those that are new to this game, here's how it goes...i show you a pic of a really "awesome" parent then we all take a turn saying why we'd be a better parent without stating the obvious. sarcasm is always appreciated here and the more outrageous it gets, the better!



i'd be a better parent than this one, because i'd spring for a digital camera.

if you haven't entered my give-away, there's still time! hurry, though, because it ends monday night!

oh, and if you have any nominations for a humpday hero, email them to me at storkdropzone at gmail dot com.

I'd be a better parent by providing a video camera. At least that way I could send it in to AFV and win $10K or even $100K to help pay for the hospital bills or college if the kid survives!

I'd be a better parent that this because I'd make sure my kid was posing holding onto the alligator while I took the picture. He's just WAY too far away in this picture -- what kind of memory is that for him?

I'd be a better parent because I'd have also snapped a shot after I encouraged my child to go ahead and wrestle the gator...and he listened.

I am here to show some blog love and congrats for your fab friends feature...and yeah, I would be a better parent because, I would make him sit on the gator's back and pose for me!

I'd be a better parent because I'd use this opportunity to teach my son about the importance of dental hygiene. "See all those sharp teeth dear, he has to brush them everyday to keep them in good shape. It doesn't look like he flosses though."

Love this idea!!
I would be a better parent because I would get all of kids lined up by the alligator so they could all be in the picture together. You know, nothing like having a good memory to look back on!

I'd be a better parent because I'd dress that kid in an outfit from Lady Gaga's raw meat clothing line (steak shorts and a t-bone tee).

omg, I feel so naughty for writing that but it's kinda exhilarating. Ha ha IF...you didn't destroy my sense of humor (today at least).

Wouldn't it make such a cute picture of having the child pose with his head in the alligators open mouth!! TOTALLY better parent by doing that!!!

marilyn said...

ahhh! you are too funny!!

I would be a better parent by telling my son to move in closer!!

I would have sprung for the gator swamp tour where your kid gets waterski behind an airboat in gator-infested waters. Not this lame baby aligator farm that this poor kid was taken too. I bet the next stop on his tour was a mosquito viewing.

I'd be a better parent than this one, because I would have paid for the alligator ride and not just the alligator view.
Have you ever ridden on an alligator?! Be the first among your friends!

I'd be a better parent because I wouldn't make him wear that hideous outfit. That's why the gator is attacking. Because of the outfit ;)

ha, that is a great picture. and such a fun game!

I've got nothing to add about parenting that kid, only a slight jealousy that the real parent is so confident to let their child explore like kids should. You caught me in a cynical moment, but I just wonder sometimes If I'll ever be able to relax enough to let my someday kids experience all the risks and wonders of life. I don't want to be that crazy umbrella mom, (is it called an umbrella mom?) who never lets her kid out of arms reach, but ahhh, i wouldn't put it past me at this point.

can't wait for more pictures!
