Moms Confess F’ed Up Things Their Kids Have Done

From Huff Post

Below you’ll read a collection of 20 stories gathered from a show called,The Pump and Dump: A Parentally Incorrect Comedy Show and Night Out, For Once“.  At each show, the hosts provide an index card to audience members and ask them to write down the most f’ed up thing their kid has done, and then they read them aloud on stage. It’s amazingly cathartic, hilarious and completely true.

Anti-vax doctor’s comments causing outrage

Reposted from 22 Words. Adam sums it up pretty well for us.

The Jacksons’ daughter has leukemia which has ruined her measles immunity, and their son is too young to be immunized. So they are, in a sense, at the mercy of their community when it comes to contracting or not contracting the infection.

Now, after a trip to Disneyland and having indirect contact with a family who doesn’t vaccinate, their son is showing signs of the disease. And there’s nothing they can do but wait and hope.

Their story is sad enough told just like that. But to add salt to the wound, let’s see what the anti-vax doctor interviewed for this segment has to say…

His remarks (which begin about 2 minutes in) are clearly edited, so it’s possible he’s not as terrible as he comes across. Let’s hope so anyway, because how could anyone — and a doctor, no less — show such blatant disregard for the lives of other people?

Swedish toy catalog shows boys with dolls, girls with guns

One of the largest toy chains in Sweden published a gender-neutral Christmas catalog, showings boys playing with dolls and girls holding toy machine guns. In the past, the company has been accused by the public of encouraging outdated gender roles with catalogs that featured boys dressed as superheroes and girls as princesses.

This was the company response to that.

What do you think? Think this confuses our kids, or something people need to stop freaking out about?

Peter Alsop: Master Creepster of Children Songs

Kids can be surprisingly morbid. It’s really only natural; ask any parent, and they’ll tell you stories of their kids asking about dying. I am not sure we should be composing cute Raffi-like songs about death though either. That hasn’t stopped Peter Alsop from writing a one of the creepiest kid songs ever. The video is a bit disheartening too. The little ginger boy will haunt me tonight.

Peter Alsop is a creepmaster of other songs too. His other CDs include songs like “Don’t Put Your Hand In My Pants”, “My Brother Threw Up On My Stuffed Toy Bunny” and “Poop Goes The Weasel” (we assure you: that last was not a typo).

A feline organist and an incredibly creepy man offer a rendition of ‘Jesus Loves Me’ that might even give David Lynch nightmares.

A 4th grader’s first ski jump

Learning ski jumping takes courage, and this 4th grader has what it takes. The fear of facing something scary and then forcing yourself to push through plays out in this video. You can hear the excitement in this kids voice at then end. Challenge accepted. Life lesson learned. Confidence boosted. Awesome.

A child’s to-do list

Being a kid was the best. I wish my to-do lists looked more like this. Maybe I’ll adopt this list as my own for the weekend.
