    Photo Temporarily Unavailable

    My computer died suddenly Friday night after a long and protracted illness.  She had been sick for some time with the vapors but late Friday, she gave one long loud gasp and she was gone.  So Saturday we took the money we should have spent on tires for my car and got me a new ‘puter!

    At any rate, I now have room for all of my pictures on my computer and as I was downloading them (uploading? whatever) I came across a few pictures that reminded me just how far we’ve come as parents which is to say, not that far.  Not only is Sean a yummy delicious tax deduction, but he is an endless source of entertainment.

     Here’s one of Sean in MeMaws store window when he was about four months old that we took to amuse ourselves and passers by  in Downtown Tuna.

      Now that’s a classic. I bet the price tag read “Priceless.”

      Only in a small town can you get away with something like that without having someone call CPS. That’s an adorable picture!

      From that distance he DOES look like a doll! Very cool.

      He totally looks like one of those “lifelike” babydolls. The things we do to our children for a photo op…

      Precious. I would have snapped him up in a second. Even without a coupon.

      I am SO sorry about your computer! I recently lost mine, too! Glad you were able to get a new one! Who needs tires, anyway! haha

      HA HA HA HA HA!

      Okay, what were the comments you received? Did people think it was hilarious? Where they concerned for his welfare?

      I promise you I would have knocked elderly people and trampled anyone who got in my way so I could run in and make a very competitive offer.

      SO FUNNY!

      I didn’t see a price. I’m guessing the sleeping model is probably more than I could afford! 😉

      He looks like a doll, literally!

      Too funny! When I first glanced at the picture, I actually thought it was a doll. After reading your post I looked at it again and really had to study it to see that is was indeed Sean. What a cutie!

      Oh Lord now my mama will be looking for some sweet innocent baby to pose in the window of the Greater Knox Agroplex Daily Times like this. Are you sure we’re not related? Maybe our mamas are 4th cousins twice removed or something like that? think Tuna and the greater Knox Agroplex might be one and the same…come see me sometime!

      I am completely amused! Congratulations on the new machine.

      We’ve joked — mostly with our accountant as she’s the only one who might get it — that our children would be named 11 and 22 — for the tax-free gifting our parents could do for us each year (if they wanted to…) and then the deduction went up so now it would be 12 and 24, which isn’t as funny for some reason.

      That picture is absolutely hilarious! I called all of my children to come and take a look at it.

      No way. Is that really him? He looks so perfectly tiny, just like a doll. Great shot.

      I must be an “Old People” cuz I was TOTALLY amused. And, like many others, I thought it was a picture of a doll. Thanks for sharing that with us.

      I would have bought him for sure. 🙂

      After going through a whole pregnancy (or three) and the weight gain and the hospital bills, I can definitely say that picking up a baby at a “Baby Sale” would be a heck of a lot easier! 😉

    29. Kathy/ Lessons from the Laundry says:

      I totally thought he was a babydoll! I bet you got a lot of lookers that day.

      LOL! Before reading the post, I thought that was just a toy doll in the window 🙂

      Too cute. But I bet his price tag was way out of anyone’s possible reach. 🙂

      Oh my gosh that’s too funny! And totally something that I would do if I had a store window to play with!

      Count me among those who thought that he was a doll at first. I’d be afraid to do something like that in my big city…
