What? Your baby can't read.

You got a problem with it?

A shirt for your toddler.

Yes, I hate stuff like that. It's like putting an embarassing shirt on a severely disabled person. Not very nice.

Here are some other T-shirts for toddlers.

Thorley: Those are disturbing. You're born... to these people and that's what you're stuck with.

Thorley: Good googling! Someone bought us some weird t-shirts when we had our son. When I saw this post I asked my husband if he could remember the exact designs and neither of us could. But, there they were on your page! Pottyhead and I Can Kick Your Baby's Ass.

Our son wore neither. I can't stand tacky-message-tees.

But, I'm oddly interested in the Someday-I'll-Get-Trashed-At-Prom shirt.

And here it is!

It's tacky, but a fresh toddler wearing an "I can kick your babie's ass" T is kind cute in a wrong way.

As far as the shirts with political messages, I would like to know if any libs would want their kid to be elected president or anything else, like White House Correspondent, and have these hateful political shirts displayed on the screen. In fact, based on the approximate size and shape, I think helen thomas has a small wardrobe of the "baby smarter than pres" t-shirts, the thing is that the tardo wears them herself.

campy tacky clothing is a STANDARD among people who try to dress their babies snappy, so I don't mind some of them; however, others are out of line.

Why does it seem tougher for kids to just be kids (as opposed to fashion statements, political advertisements, proselytizers, etc. etc.) these days?

Because they're being raised by asses just being asses.

For a moment, I thought you were going to write about this company that "teaches" your child to read at an early age. I anticipated another long comment section like the "how early is your kid potty-trained?" section.

You mean like those "Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some Assembly Required" shirts sold on conservative sites, including Michelle Malkin's?

Conservative. Glass House. Rock. Some forethought required. But not likely.

Ah, the coarsening of culture continues. Like to see a study of how people talk to a baby who wears that shirt v. one who wears shirts w/ ducks or bunnies.

When parents act like high schoolers, imagine how the high schoolers will start acting.

Joe baby:

"When"?

And I think the ""Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some Assembly Required" t-shirts are sickening. Anybody who'd wear that sort of shirt, or spend or earn one red cent from such a thing, disgusts me.

But maybe I'm just being overly sensitive given that I just can't get the picture of what happened to Iraqi journalist Atwar Bahjat out of my mind today.

The bile rises.
