In life, there are some places you are more likely to encounter idiots than others. Like a Justin Beiber concert. The same is true of the internet, and Pinterest is sadly one of those highly concentrated idiot hubs. I can’t scroll a mouse without bumping into a gaggle of idiot pinners. Like the 179 people who thought this was a good idea:
Yes, finally! Some mommy-daughter matching that makes sense! People will appreciate how cute and coordinated you are when you are grocery shopping or dropping your daughter off at school in your underwear! These are the memories your daughter will look back on fondly…in therapy.
I’m a straggler wondering in but had to say that when Pinterest first came out, just the word made me think of Pinheads, pinning someone to go steady, and voo-doo dolls. Oh, and being six-years-old, watching my mother hem my new dress, holding those sharp pins in her mouth and cringing at the thought of her swallowing one. And now thanks to you, my second exposure (pun intended) to Pinterest will keep me at age six, chanting a modified childhood song. “I see London, I see France, I see my Mama’s….” Thank you for the flashback. Glad to find your blog.
Maybe she ran out of fabric. Haha. You are not alone. Some parents are only interested in looking sexy I’m afraid. You live and learn. 🙂
I have 4 children and I am never shocked at the crap I see some parents wearing when at school events or just out in public. I’m no prude, but come on parents. Some parents are a sad commentary on where our society is heading in general.
I think I’ve seen a few examples of what you mean haha
And I was just looking for underwear that match my daughter’s shirt. Really!?!! 179 people “like” this?
Haha apparently there is a big market for that
I didn’t even know my parents had genitalia until I was in my teens, let alone was forced to be in direct eye-line of them or match my outfit with the clothing that covered them. Ew. And, yes those are underwear, unless your Daisy Duke or a Pole Diva. Anytime your ass cheeks can jiggle out of something it’s time to add fabric. Of course, Mathair’s been contemplating if Mommy Dearest has taken the bottom half of the kid’s pajamas.
Thank you!! I see some of those pins and it’s all I can do not to comment that they are nuts!
I know, it is so tempting
Hahahaha, people. My little guy tshirts did always match my dad’s tightie whities, not that you mention it!! I don’t think he ever took a picture of it and put it online though.
That’s only because there was no Instagram then right?
Is that underwear, or just really short shorts?
good question, i guess they could be short shorts. i am going to go with underwear so I don’t lose the right to make fun of this pin
I don’t think you’d lose the right either way.
I think I threw up a little, in my mouth. This is exactly the kind of neurotic thing my mom would have done to me if she’d had the chance. *Shudder*
Haha it sounds like so much work. I don’t even match my own underwear to what I am wearing
1. Who took the photo? and 2. What was posing like? … “Okay sweetie, now hug mommy’s leg… a little higher.. a little looser… wait, can you pout just a teeny tiny bit? Oh that’s a real pout?…
haha all very good questions
I have an entire board on Pinterest for disturbing parenting pictures like this. So bizarre.
Haha well now I gots ta follow you cuz I want to see that board
I love Pinterest!!! Addicted to it actually, but I have to agree that there is a plethora of stupidity on there.
i love pinterest, admittedly i have never seen a picture like this on there but i still love pinterest
I like it too, it’s pretty useful, but sometimes ppl pin/say the silliest things
Almost spit out my coffee laughing at the last sentence! I haven’t been on Pinterest in awhile, maybe for good reason lol.
