Olive Branch

Olive branch

Before the whole Childfree controversy erupted last week, I was unaware of how completely inappropriate it was for my wife and I to have procreated, what awful parents we must be, and what a burden it is upon everyone around us when we take our terrorist-like offspring out in public. Now that I’ve been enlightened, I just want everyone to see all of the precautions we’re taking to avoid causing any further trouble.

    hahahahah you crack me up!
    You know, of course, the idiot fringe will call you on this!
    They have no sense of humor on these matters.

    I’d like to see you get back to the regular, delightful context we know and love.
    Enough of these hateful dimwits!

    Where did you get those straight jackets?? My boyfriend has a kid that could do with one…

    Thanks for your wonderful blog! One day you will have to tell us all how you told your kids about this – um – ‘exchange of opinions’ – and got them to sit for this picture. Are you having the picture printed and hung on the wall with the other family pictures? :-)

    That is great. I didn’t notice the chastity belts right away, but that was a classy touch.

    Oh,boy. You’ve been having fun gathering up those Hallowe’en costumes, haven’t you. NOW the real fun starts–State Children’s Services will be around soon. Love the chastity belts.

    –>Hilarious! I didn’t notice the belts at first and wondered if WW was on to a new style for a second before it all clicked. Thanks for the chuckle.

    I had to explain the whole backstory to my husband before showing him the photo. We were laughing so hard and then when I asked him if he noticed the chastity belts, the raucous laughter began anew! Whatever trouble you had to go through to get the props was well worth it, in my opinion. I think they just didn’t know who they were messing with, did they?

    OMG, rofl. I sure do hope tomorrow’s post isn’t about all the new hits you just got from the bondage faction. They might be even more strange.

    As a parent of three (I’m damned to a special place in hell, apparently), I appreciate that you are teaching your children to have a” sense of the ridiculous”, as my grandbreeder used to say. Your critics (and I’m definitely not one of them), obviously don’t.

    And I love what you’ve done with your duct tape!

    Great job! I love it.

    I, for one, can not believe how cute your kids are with duct taped mouths. I have always wondered about the use on my own 3 kids (yep, I’m a moo X 3).
    Great picture, great sense of humor, glad you stood your ground.

    Leave it to WW to make a chastity belt look HOT, right? lol

    I was trying to explain the back story to my husband, but it took me a while to stop laughing. I would like to add my support for the suggestion of using this as your Xmas card photo this year!

    My kids are a bit big now. I may need help getting them to stand still while I put those accessories on them!
