Baby Scares The Hell Outta Me

Did you guys ever have to take these creepy things home in high school? The Real Baby Simulators for Sex Ed or whatever the hell your school taught. We were in the bible belt so ours was for Sex Ed with the sole purpose to scare the hell out of us. Good tactic, I think. Look at them! Scary. And they're tempermental bastards, too. You know, like if you shake the shit out of them for gurgling all night long, they tell on you in the morning. Then you get detention or in school suspension... Not that I know or anything.

My best friend's neice came along with her to visit this weekend and it was her weekend with the creepy thing baby.

We took that thing out to eat lunch and of course, it cried. People looked at us like we were insane when we held it.

Okay, I never held it. I've got my own kids, no doll can scare me now. It'd be totally wasted on me.

I was reading the booklet that comes home with it, her - Apple Jane, in this case. Do you know these things can 'die' of SIDS? And if it does, you get an F? What kind of bullshit is that?

I'm so glad there is so much strange shit in the world to serve as blog fodder.

seriously you get an F if it dies of SIDS? WTF is that about? Thankfully we never did the doll thing lol our school was too cheap so we had the egg thing.

Supposedly if you can take care of an egg you can handle a kid lol um NOOO people. Eggs don't cry, pee all day, require to be fed and wake you up screaming at all hours.

I aced the egg thing, the kid thing... well the jury's still out on that one.

So if you fail because it dies of SIDS, does that mean they know what causes SIDS? I'm sure the rest of the world would like that answer. We didn't even have sex ed where I kive.

Well, that's not very real life is it? SIDS has completely unknown causes so if this "child" dies randomly your grade is shot? We had to babysit an egg - not an actual "child." THe ony way you got an F withthe egg is if you dropped it and broke the guts out of it. My sister's had a small crack so they put a plaster "diaper" on it to keep it from leaking and still passed. They actually got extra credit for getting "medical attention."

Very creepy! Especially that bright eyed one, (A), up in the corner.

Wait, SIDS gets you an F?

What the hell kind of lesson is that to teach them???

Funny in my mind said...

That crazy lady should have gotten 8 of those. You know, for practice; to see what kind of grade she'd get.

Very creepy looking! Didn't have them when I was in school. My main memory of sex ed is the day the most popular girl in school cried on my shoulder (The least known girl)because she was worried about maybe being pregnant. Left a big impression!
