the family in sunglasses

Clementine has these cheap, pink-tinted glasses that she likes to run around the house in. (We think they make her look like Elton John, so we don’t discourage it.) Today, she pulled up her hoody, put on her glasses, and then, after hopping and shouting for about five minutes, persuaded us to join her. (Clementine found Linette’s sunglasses and a hat and kept following her around with them until she put them on. (Maybe she was pretending that they were being followed by the paparazzi.)) Anyway, it seemed like a good time to snap a few family photos.

    And that’s not drool around the collar of my Twin Peaks shirt. It’s sweat.

    LIAR, we know what it really is…nice try though.

    OK, she is too cute and the following around thing engaging you in role playing games at just a year means that she is really smart. Are you two prepared to raise a child smarter than the two of you, I mean really prepared?

    I thought I would make it to our son being at least in the double digits before he asked a science question I couldn’t answer but: How do CD-ROMs work? I just started babbling some shit about the binary system before my husband gave me a withering look. BC (before child)I told husband he had to handle all the dead white men civil war crap and I would handle science…I am screwed.

    But at least I made it to six years, it looks like you all ain’t going to make it to two. KUDOS!

    I didn’t expect that you would be the kind of parents to raise a child in rose-colored glasses.

    I immediately thought of Trevor Horn when I looked at BrianB’s linked picture.

    YES!!! She’s the cutest child I’ve ever seen and also the funniest and smartest child I’ve ever seen.

    OOPS! That wasn’t Mark, it was grandma, and I don’t know how to change it – sorry.

    Mark, I know you’ve wished to change your mother over the years, but it’s not nice to refer to her as “it.”

    This is the real Mark. Apparently I must have used my mom’s computer to leave a comment over Christmas, and now it thinks she’s me… From now on, just assume that everything on this site was written by my mother pretending to be me…

    Now to get started on my new regular feature – “Meet My Most Recent Beanie Baby Acquisition.”

    Is Clem wearing plaid and stripes?!?!?! Someone call the fashion police!

    Mark, I’d like to suggest Elwood’s Barber Shop on Grove and Tyler.

    Do they do throw in a complimentary nose hair trim with the purchase of a haircut, Dr. Cherry? I’ve blown up a few photos of Mark and it looks as though he’s in pretty serious need of some pruning.

    You have to tip well for that.

    I get my hair cut by my friend Marty… You know him as the blood-soaked bunny at Zombie Claus.

    BrianB, your kid looks cool and all, but I think that this is the guy Clementine needs in her band.

    And, if you charge a monthly access fee and don’t care about the permanent psychological damage, I hear you can get quite rich!

    I became suspicious by your insistence in referring to it as a “Twin Peaks T-Shirt”. One can’t really tell what it is in the photo, and it seemed like you were suggesting an edgy, cult show was the shirt’s subject matter possibly as an attempt to appear ‘cool’ and ‘hip’.

    Then it crossed my mind that you weren’t merely trying to convince us of the image on the shirt, but could possibly be attempting to distract us from wondering what it really consisted of. Using an advanced set of pattern recognition tools, I’ve determined that the visible white shape on your shirt must be the top section from one of several possible headshots of Dick Van Dyke, from this Diagnosis Murder Fanpage.

    Nice try. Liar.

    Good detective work, Brett… But, in the words of Maxwell Smart, you missed it by that much. It was actually one of my serveral Angela Lansbury shirts.

    I thought your “Murder, she wrote” shirts were all tank tops…I guess I must have been thinking of the “Matlock” one you were wearing the other night at the “Doc” Fan Convention.

    In my defense, Brett, I thought that it was a Papa Doc Duvalier convention.

    This is my last chance to be a killjoy before I go on vacation. It is a fact that Mark really does have a Twin Peaks T-shirt. I have seen it, he has had it for years.

    I’ll be back after Valentine’s Day. Don’t believe anything you read on this site. From me or anyone else. This site is like a Liar’s Club.

    It’s a kind of funny shrit for a man with such fleshy breasts to wear, don’t you think?

    He must be very confident.
