Babies in flower pots

Two babies, sitting in lettuce, with their heads covered in a piece of lettuce. You might wonder what I am saying, but that was just a description of a poster in our classroom. One from famous Anne Geddes. You know, that woman who pictures babies in the weirdest ways. I mean, what’s cute about a baby sitting in a lettuce? In fact, I find it a little perverse.
And would you be happy if your child would be dressed up as a rabbit and be exposed to the world? Or imagine that you’re an adult and you’re that kid looking like a snail on a poster.
“So, you were a model as a child?”
“Yes, look, this is me sleeping in a tulip.”
“Oh, and that’s you dressed up as a sunflower?”

Maybe it’s due to the fact that I don’t really like babies that I can’t find any pleasure in seeing this. Okay, I was a baby once too, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that I won’t some, later. Don’t shoot me for that. There’s a great chance that I will change my mind in a few years.

Back on topic. Are you in favour of babies in flower pots?

    Babies tend to be annoying. Especially when they are brought into the office and every female nearby starts cooing and ahhhing at it.

      Oh, that’s just cruel! Why can’t they treat babies like adults?
      I can’t imagine I’ll ever be like that.

    I think if I were to find a baby in a flower pot, I’d be mightily surprised and not a little peeved. I’ve already got one (baby. Not flower pot) so I don’t need another one. Esp one covered in soil and worms.

    I despair of Anne Geddes, she gives photography a bad name.

      Aha, so there actually are mothers who share my opinion! It’s a sort of relief that having babies doesn’t necessarily mean that babies conquered your brain.

    I totally agree. Years of babysitting were enough birth control for me.
