Sadistic Summer

As I was scanning baby pictures for my little biggest brother, I came across these pictures. Proof that my parents used their children as a private source of amusement. This particular incident involved a traditional summertime treat. Most of the time this summertime delight is served in bite-sized cubes or inch-thick slices. Usually. When one isn't intent on using your position as "parent" to construct humorous situations involving young children just to fulfill your sick, sick sense of humor.

This is representative of the size of the slices of watermelon given to the adults:

And these are the slices given to the toddlers:

I just bet my "loving parents" had sooooo much fun watching their kids trying to handle eating 1/4 of a watermelon each.

Sick? Twisted? You decide!


  1. Maybe twisted but not sick! I love it and have no memory of it.

  2. That is a great picture Karen! I love it!

  3. This is the rest of the story: Across the road and one field down was acres of watermelon. When there is that much watermelon with unlimited access it seemed silly to have to deal with seeds so Dad and I cut pieces of watermelon big enough that you could have your fill of just the heart. We thought we were being super parents sacrificing a whole watermelon just so you kids could have the "best part". The picture does look funny though and that pic of Dad..."Oooo baby!"

  4. I think it is WONDERFUL and want to have children solely for the purpose of subjecting them to large amounts of watermelon.

  5. I can't believe how much Connie's kids look like you guys.
