Ridiculous picture of the week

In the early '90s, my sister and I saw Parenthood several times (it's possible we had unreasonable crushes on Tom Hulce) and we were endlessly amused by the toddler who ran around with a bucket on his head, crashing into walls. We felt a bit sorry for his mother.

Now Berry's making me be that mother. She loves to put blankets, paper bags, towels over her head and crow, without a hint of irony, "I seeeeeeeeeee you!"

I'll say this for the Parenthood kid: if you're going to crash into walls, a bucket makes much better headgear than a paper bag.



  1. My baby does this too. Drapes anything over his head--blankies, hats, sister's panties--and full steams ahead. I'm glad I'm not alone.

  2. ..and parents spend so much money on "real" toys!

    Love the picture! Lol!

  3. lol. My daughter used to do that as well. Even went as far as making masks and such when she got a bit older out of them.

    I agree that a bucket does make much better headgear.

  4. Ahaha!

    And I must have seen Parenthood about 50 times, it was one of my favourite movies when I was younger :)

  5. that is a great photo as is the newspaper one! My Dad has two letterpresses- one day I'll learn to work them! Good luck :)

  6. My daughter stopped putting stuff over her head when she cut her nose removing a bucket.
