The Kiddie Pool

The Kiddie Pool
Last night I was watching a pretty stupid TV show, The Choice.  Basically it is exactly like The Voice only instead of wannabe singers desperately trying to woo celebrity judges from behind, it is a bunch of single women desperately trying to win a date with a male celebrity.  If the guy likes what he hears in the 20 seconds the girl has to sell herself, he’ll spin his chair around.  Then they go to this even more desperate speed round, where the girl has to answer rapid-fire questions from the ‘celebrity.’ 
One example that stood out to me was the question: “Do you like kids?”  And the women would always reply with a near-hysterical YES!!!!! I LOVE KIDS!!!! KIDS ARE AWESOME!!! I WANNA HAVE KIDS!!!!  Like, geez, calm down lady.  You are scaring people. I like kids too, but I am not screaming it from the rooftops to win a date with Dean Cain, ok?
Anyway, my whole point is this: Do YOU like kids?  If so, you will probably like these makeovers.  And you even might win a date with Dean Cain!  But probably not. 
So let’s check them out!
A swinging swing redo from Amy at My Infernal Journal:

A very ambitious quadruple-stroller makeover from Kathryn at The Junk In Our Trunks:

A de-Dora-ed kiddie papasan from Better After reader Hayley:

And a ridiculously cute kid kitchen from Kim at Easy Peasy Pie.

I hope you enjoyed that more than I enjoyed The Choice!

    That stroller make over is AWESOME! It almost makes me want to have four kids to push around in it. Almost.

    LOVE IT – especially the fabric on the stroller! Gorgeous! Not enough to wish for four kids (like Rachel) but perhaps for my single-seater-no-kids-allowed wingback? lol

    Hee hee. That TV show sounds awesome – nothing better watching women who’ve left every shred of dignity and self-respect behind to fling themselves at someone who could end up being William Shatner. Now THAT would serve them right. Love the little kitchen!

    I thought it was illegal to De-Dora anything. A De-Barney, on the other hand, gets a Better Homes and Gardens seal of approval.

    I’m assuming these makeovers are done by parents with small children. How do they find the time to work this magic! Love the tiny kitchen. ~ Maureen

    I love kids but I don’t like those type of shows. It is so demeaning to the women and the fact that they are signing themselves up for this show makes it worse.
    But I do love all these child centered makeovers.
