Happy fucking birthday, Pea! i almost missed that the first time... hehehehe!

Robin said...

PLEASE tell me those are available stateside.

And Happy Birthday Pea!

Raina said...

Robin, The hat is from an "X-rated" party pack I bought at Urban Outfitters ages ago. It came with plates, balloons, and naughty candy.

Decorina said...

Happy Pea! She is just the cutest!

Love the hat.

Kate said...

You're a bad mother.
But then again I just laughed so hard that makes me one too...
I may have to make my own hats in a similar vein.....

Happy Fucking Birthday sweetest Pea.

Ack, in New Zealand it's Jan. 2?
That hat is amazing. Hope the b.day was sweet and fun for all.

Happy belated birthday sweet pea!

Anonymous said...

sorry but i think that's really in poor taste. nice photo to remember the occasion.

erin@designcrisis said...

Well, I think it's fucking hilarious.

Decorina said...

Well then Anon, I guess you won't be searching for those hats for your own birthday party.

Oh well, bringing up a kiddo with a sense of humor and wit isn't easy, but Raina is up to the task.

karly / design crisis said...

Right Anon, I'm going to shelter my kids from bad words too. that's a fucking fantastic idea.

Anonymous said...

hmm... never really considered bad language to be humourous, just kinda base. What next - are you going to put your kid in a tee shirt that says 'slut'? Kids are so innocent, which is what's great about them. If your kids first word is 'fuck' are you going to be a proud parent? Our role is to shelter our kids to a certain extent until they can understand what things mean. I'm not one to send uppity comments to blogs and I'm certainly not trying to preach - I just felt awful when I saw the picture and I felt compelled to send a note. Everyone has their own parental style...

Debi said...

Anon - those of us who know Raina and family know that they are well grounded and decent people - with a fabulous sense of humor. Pea will also grow up not using those words inappropriately - but will find humor in the picture. I think you have to know Raina to appreciate that this is in no way tasteless or inappropriate - and will likely not be next years Hanukkah card.

Raina said...

Anon, what you can't see in the photo is the hot pink toddler thong she's sporting. As soon as her gross motor skills are up to snuff, she's gonna work that pole. She's gotta earn her preschool tuition somehow.

Raina said...

And to Only a Movie - welcome to this deliciousness!

I'm so glad I came back to see the comment skirmish, Raina! :-) Now off to look at landscape porn. Are you on flickr?

Raina said...

OAM, Funny you should ask. I've only goofed around with Flickr but was thinking about posting our trip shots. I'll let you know if they go up.

The Nerdy Fashionista said...

I'm not one to send uppity comments to other people's blogs, but I'm going to do it anyway. Everyone has their own parenting style, but I feel totally justified in vocalizing my judgment of yours on your blog, even though I don't know you, your kid, or anything about any of you. And I am going to preface my unsolicited criticism with the words "sorry, but," to make it clear that I really don't want to criticize you, am struggling hard against the urge to do so, but was overcome in the end, and so I have to apologize to show that I really didn't mean for it to slip out. Whoopsies!

Raina, I trust you will be passing out crack pipes at her three-year party, right? Wouldn't want Anon to be disappointed...

Raina said...

Her Hasbro "I'm a Little Oxycontin Dealer (with Bonus Coffee Maker)" playset is safely hidden in a closet. I got an after-Christmas deal on it.

It's all the rage with kids in Alaska.

Raina said...

Anon-troll has forced me to remove "Anonymous" posting from the blog.

For any of you who were exposed to that last nonsensical rant, my apologies and it was permanently deleted.

Decorina said...

No apology necessary Raina. They are a PITA, aren't they? I go back and forth with allowing/not allowing them to post.

Decorina said...

And, I have gone back to not allowing the Anons to post. That idiot on my blog was just such a gasbag that I had to stop with him.

Raina said...

It's a shame that crazy trolls have to ruin it for all. The nutter I had on here popped up during the political season and kept threatening/promising to leave, but she kept coming back like a bad rash.

She never understood the difference between a personal attack and a dissenting opinion. I mean SHE JUST DID NOT GET IT.

Iheartfashion said...

Rats! I missed the crazy anonymous ranting?

Decorina said...

They never seem to get it. That troll I had also started during the election; what I really hate is his attacks not only on me, but on people like David. Better off without them. And I especially find them irritating because they always hide behind Anonymous. No reason for that - we let everyone know who we are, they just don't have the fortitude.

Raina said...

Hello IHeartFashion and welcome to this deliciousness!

You didn't miss much, just a troll attacking and then acting wounded when other commenters called out her bullshit.

Camilla @ Designalogue Blog said...

Never dull over here at Lampshade is it!!

hello gorgeous said...

How did I miss her birthday? See, this is what happens when I try to blog less...

Happy belated, dollface!

karly hand - identity crisis said...

ok, now i understand why the comments aren't working. just for that I'm going to force my kids to say fuck before mama or dada and I best get that oxycontin playset as a hand-me-down

woodley park-zoo said...

I was just going to say omg, sorry I'm late, as I'm only now getting to this via my wonky RSS reader! HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY PEA!

I thought the 31 comments indicated overwhelming good tidings, but oof! Oh wells. Pooh on trolls.
