I mock people who do this.

But here I am.  One of them.  (I also mock people who obsess about dandelions.  And what did I do yesterday?  Weed our front yard of every last dandelion.  It was like a dandelion genocide.  (Can we joke about that?  I have jewish friends who joke about the Holocaust, but maybe that's like the N word?  (And can we use parentheses inside of parentheses?)))

Anyway, one of those people.  Those people who put their kid in beauty pageants.  And otherwise attention whore their child.

But in a moment of weakness, I submitted MJ to the Parent's Magazine photo contest.  And now that I've done it, I feel compelled to try to get her votes.  So that one day I don't have to tell her "Yes, honey, I put your photo in a contest but no one voted for you but me."  How sad would that be?

So anyway, here I am, asking you to vote for my child.  There's no prize for you, but she is a cutie, isn't she?

You can click here to vote:
You can vote once per day.
 And now let's never speak of this again. 


  1. But MJ is sooooo cute!! I voted!!

  2. Next thing you know you'll be buying her Happy Meals with FRENCH FRIES (gasp (gasp)).

    She's cute. I'll vote.

  3. I never tire of hearing that she's cute. I've always hated compliments, but when it's about your little one it's entirely different. French fries? She's already been begging, it must be from all the commercials she watches during her daytime soaps.
