So, I'm trolling about Pinterest, as I often do on the couch, when I came across this picture of a baby dressed as a cowboy..
Well, I use the term "dressed" loosely. Whatever, maybe he's related to the Naked Cowboy in New York.
Naturally I had to show it to Lindsey and get her thoughts. This is the conversation that followed:
Michelle: Hey, look at this cute cowboy baby.
Lindsey: Why is he naked? And in a barn?
M: I don't know, because he's a cute baby.
L: Where are his parents? Why is he carrying a rope? Why doesn't he have shoes on?
M: I think you're missing the point. He's a cute baby, kind of dressed like a cowboy.
L: (Anxious look) That rope is touching his tushey, I don't know... I just don't like it. I don't like the idea of my baby wandering around naked in a barn on a farm.
It is troublesome that the rope is touching his tushey. Also that he has no shoes in a barn. I'm no farmer, but I don't think that's the safest idea. Although my spuddy senses are telling me this is probably not a real barn, so it might be okay. I personally don't think I would do this to my kid.. but I also never thought I'd drink wine out of a tervis tumbler or dance with a sombrero on my head in a public restaurant. Sometimes people do weird things.
Weigh in on the debate: Yee-haw or Naw to Cowboy Baby?
