Wall of Shame

Many years ago, one of my long time friends used to joke about (if) she ever had children, she would construct a "wall of shame" in her home that showcased all of the embarrassing and horrific photos of her child behaving badly.

When I heard her idea, I was not yet a mom but you better believe I laughed my ass off. Can you imagine? Your child as a teenager and them bringing home a date or friends and then leading them down the hallway to view their "wall of shame"? I giggle every time I think about it.

I never actually considered doing this to my own child. Then, I had Berlyn. She is an angel. *cough*...Usually. But when she isn't?  I do take pictures of her so she can see how ridiculous she is being/acting. It seems to work once she gets an eyeful of a hideous picture of herself. I know I learned MY lesson years ago from all the traumatic shots my mom had of me in family albums.

Will I really construct my own "Wall of Shame" for my daughter? Not sure yet. Only time will tell. Depends on how wild of a teenager she ends up being. Then, it will be my revenge.

I think being able to embarrass your child is a parent's right and more often than not, it is so fun.

Here are a few of my faves...and one day, will probably be some of Berlyn's least faves.

##$@%^% this beach, shit!

I don't wanna.

Please feed me, I am starving.


Waking up is not so pretty.

Call me, OGB.

Haunted Mansion @ Disneyland. Obviously, not enjoying herself.

My Grumpy Valentine.

The valentine picture looks like she is going to a dance and doesn't have a date and is just really really pissed off! Ha!
