I realize many of you have found your way to my blog recently. First and foremost, I want to express my appreciation for taking the time to read my silly little blog. Until recently, wandering to this blog has always been a like a box of chocolates - sometimes you get the delicious nougat centers. Other times you get the one filled with toothpaste. But I've sort got a groove going on here now, and so far I dig it the most. Here's what you'll find and when you'll find it:
A post that (hopefully) honors God
A guest post from Billy Coffey
An awesomatastic post from a fabulous guest blogger (or one of my friends - SNORT! - just kidding, they're all awesome.)
The epic twitter update
A repost of something that has appeared on this blog previously, typically something ridiculous. Because I'm all up in ridiculous.
So...according to my schedule, today is "Something Else":
My 8-year old daughter informed me last week that she wants to dress as a devil cat for Halloween. What's a devil cat? I have no idea. But it sounds sort of slutty to me, so she will most likely NOT be dressing as a devil cat.
Did I miss something? Since when is it acceptable for pre-pubescent little girls to dress like hookers? Or as Erin, winner of my first ever Super Skanktacular Saturday Giveaway might call them, Prostitots?
I suppose I could play the blame game here. Kids are constantly bombarded with inappropriate images from TV and other media outlets. When was the last time you tried to buy your daughter a pair of shorts? It's becoming increasingly difficult to find plain, knit or cotton shorts without words like "Juicy" or "Jail Bait" emblazoned across the butt. Lovely...
But here's the thing - if you don't want your daughter to dress provocatively, man up and put your foot down. Don't give in to their incessant whining. Just say no to skanky kids costumes.
