Show & Tell: these boots were made for toddlin’

by Lori Lavender Luz on June 8, 2008

in Excavating,Show & Tell

It’s Show & Tell time again, boys and girls. Today I am going to show you how rotten my parents were to me.


Or maybe this was before scientists discovered that smoking was bad for children.

What brand of tobacco did YOU smoke when you were two?

Click here for a photo of my monsters parents.

When I was 2, my dad smoked like a chimney. He finally quit when the cigarette prices were raised to pay for the tobacco settlement. Am I ever happy that law suit happened!But you look adorable. Was that taken for or ever used as blackmail material? By either side? :)

That is so funny. I didnt even notice the pipe. The boots stuck out like a sore thumb. I think its cute. Just think of all of the things you have done to the kinds in the name of “cute”. :) Thanks for sharing.

Hahaha, I LOVE it. When I was 2, I snuck behind my grandparents wet bar, and ended up in the hospital getting my stomach pumped–that was my first experience with vodka. Yum.Love your picture=)

I love starting my morning off with a good laugh and your photos did it for me today.No smoking in my infanthood. But at a party for my dad’s birthday, the 18 month old me went un-noticed around the room swilling the dregs out of the guests glasses. They only noticed when I kept falling over and laughing like a maniac. Not much has changed.

That is positively adorable. =)My parents preferred to give us candy cigarettes. They gave the stigma of smoking a sweet little aftertaste.

I had those candy cigarettes when I was little. They might be just as bad as the pipe!Here from NCLM

Wow, I’d forgotten all about your dad being a pipe smoker. That brought back a whole tapestry of memories–mostly smells and a sense of atmosphere.You DO look awful cute!

LOL Very cute! I’m going to have to dig out the picture of me surrounded by liquor bottles that my parents took of me. Apparently I was known to finish off peoples glasses when I was a toddler. And my parents didn’t stop me!!

So after I sprayed ice water all over the monitor, I thought back and tried to remember what brand it was I couldn’t get enough of wayyyyy back when I was two? I didn’t even notice the pipe at first – started scrolling down thinking “awwwwwww . . . ” and then started laughing, spraying and falling off my chair!

That’s wonderful. I love it! While we don’t smoke at our house, Zozo has already developed a fondness for beer. She is always grabbing at our bottles, but B tells her she has to wait until she’s 4.

Dear, dear Lori. What a fashionista you were even at a young age. As for your parents – not monsters – they rightfully recognized that children are solely there for the purpose of dressing them up in embarrassing outfits and taking pictures of them in said outfits. Duh!

VA Blondie April 7, 2010 at 12:05 am

Thanks for the chuckle! That picture is just too cute! I waited until I was a teenager to cause trouble. Oh well. I guess I lived a pretty boring life in comparison to you.

Popping by from Mel’s Show and Tell.When I was 3 I was asked by a friend of the family to take a glass of Peppermint schnapps to my dad. While on the way to him I drank it much to my mothers dismay.What a great photo, it brought a smile to my face.

Does it have to be tobacco?I can remember going to the local liquor store when I was like 8 and buying smokes for my dad. Good times, good times.
