Two, two, two posts in one. . .

Does anyone else's baby really like being upside down? Little monkey.

(Warning: Some corse language to follow)

Originally that was all I was going to post tonight and then I made a mistake and watched the Baby Borrowers. I almost cried several times. This show was advertised as being funny, instead it's one of the saddest things I've ever seen.

For those unfamiliar with the show, three sets of teen couples decide to see what it's like to be parents. They do this by "borrowing" other people's babies.

What the fuck kind of parent agrees to give their 8-month-old to a teenage couple for 3 days!?!

The parents watch on CC camera from a house next door and can intervene if things get really bad. One mom got involved because the teen mom watching her kid wasn't feeding the baby because he was spitting out the food (he must not be hungry why else would a baby spit out food) so he had gone most of the day with no food. Another father came over because they did nothing but hold the baby when all she wanted to do was crawl around (they had no idea she could crawl), the last mom came over when the couple was trying to get the kid to sleep with no bath, no food, a dirty diaper, dirty clothes, and finally threatened to put her in bed screaming and ignore her for the night.

And most of these fucktard teens were offended because the parents were telling them how to take care of their babies!

The tears welling up in my eyes, I watched as the parents sat by watching their kids being mistreated. I'd say "those poor parents" but these dumbass parents chose to give up their babies for 3 days! I will say "those poor babies" because they're at the height of teething and separation anxiety and their shitty parents hand them over to teenagers who think raising a kid would be neat. The kids look so miserable.

I will not be watching another episode.

After a full-night's sleep and a slightly cooler head. . . I see some irony in the guy who's pictured holding his baby upside-down judging other parents decisions.

I saw commercials for it but didn't tune in. Doesn't sound like a commedy to me.

Peyton doesn't like to be upside down. He just warmed up to being tossed in the air. Now he loves it. My 3yr old still doesn't like being flipped upside down.LOL I have some very cautious boys.

Good gravy muffins..o.0! Haven't they ever heard of those baby-think-it-over dolls? Or heck, just give 'em an egg with a face painted on it like the rest of us got when we were teens in home ec. That story/show is making the brainpan ache.

That was terrible. I watched for about 10 minutes and then had to go away. I'm sure next week they will find a way to make it even more exciting. . I'm thinking something to with big empty plastic bags or scissors. Sheesh.

Ri-di-cu-lous!!! I can't believe parents would hand over their kids either. I can't believe someone even thought of this as a show idea! It's tragic.

On the bright side, my little one loves to be upside down. Especially leaning her back over or dipping her. She's a monkey child, too!
