Baby Neighborhood

pimpin’ out snow white

I figure if my mancave can win me $100, perhaps my toddler can bring me some dough too.  Here’s the little one, competing in the “2 and under” category for cutest Halloween picture in the Parent Bloggers Network giveaway, sponsored by

Not that they even came close to competing with my little one, but some of the neighbors were also out with their youngsters, including the little boy from across the street who’s always nosing around my daughter without invitation.


And, just in case you’re wondering if the gay couple was feeling left out with no urchins to dress up, the answer is “no, they were not.”

And just in case you were wondering if all the costumes on our street were cute and sweet, the answer is “no, they were not.”

  1. Are you Britney Spears? I recognize the Bret Michaels hat and wig but the rest of it is eluding me. 🙂

    Perverted proud papa pimps princess for prize. “pretends” prettiness, pathetically. posts pictures. pops pepto.

  3. That IS a scary Daddy!

    I had to put the pretends in quotes because I suspect you like to get dressed up like a girl more than the next guy.

  6. That is one embarassed looking dog.

    “Like it’s not bad enough that I have this face…”

  7. Oh, awesomeness.

    And you’re right – that little lion from across the street has got “shifty” written all over him.

  8. Yanno, for all the so called ‘offensive’ costumery in your other post, I find myself most disturbed by the dog in the tutu. He just has such a poignant ‘please shoot me now’ expression.

  9. I like how the dogs skirt is flipped up…like it’s “presenting” itself.
    Bob Barker knows best.

  10. Countessa, I’m not sure what the hell I am…I just went in the closet, grabbed some old costume material, and walked out.

    AvatGard, Funny, and accurate.

    FreeMan, Agreed.

    Sarah, Thanks!

    Staghounds, I felt bad for the dog, too, but the dog has its own room in their house, so I can’t feel too badly for it.

    Anna, I don’t trust the progeny of non-edgers.

    ShieldMaiden, Hilarious…I think you’re right.

    Matt, Bob did know best. The bulldog is quite immodest.

  11. Damn, I’m the last commentor again! How does that always happen?

    Anyways, my baby girl came home this weekend – from college. She wore a ladybug costume for Halloween. I’m not exactly sure where she went dressed like that, but I’ve learned by now that it’s really best not to ask sometimes.

  12. so cute
    so sweet
    poor dog!
    what the??

    awesome. gotta love a guy who’s secure enough in his masculinity to seize an opportunity and dress in drag.

  13. Doug, It’s okay, my friend! I’m not sure I know how a “ladybug” costume would work. I dread the days of “it’s best not to ask sometimes.”

    ChurchPunk, I’m glad I’m “secure.” And that dog is pampered. No sympathy needed.

  14. I don’t remember you looking that good in Iraq, you better be glad! Those shoes just do it for me.

  15. Harlin, I DID look that good. You just weren’t looking hard enough.

  16. Tell Doug that actually I am the last commenter! Ha!

    Oh, your post? Did your daughter win? Loved the costume and yours too.

  19. I recently wrote an essay on a similar thematic but I see some nice points listed here that I miss in my essay, “ask for change” for example. I really like this one
