AIBU to be so shocked? So ds and I were at the beach earlier and we saw a little girl walk past, she looked approx 2 max maybe 20 odd months. I had to look twice but her tshirt had the following phrase printed on it. "if you think im a little bitch you should my mum" shock Bitch was fully printed out too. Who the hell makes such tshirts and who would put one on a child it was all a bit shock and sad Does anyone else feel this is just wrong? Her mum must be a real prize role model hmm

I suppose her mother thought it was 'funny', but I find it tragic and very sad.

<< hands frog a flameproof jacket and we both take cover before getting flamed >>

YABU for being on the beach envy

People think jaunty/rude slogans on kids clothes are funny. They aren't. It's all a bit sad.

Sparkling it turned out to be only 9 degrees at the beach and it started raining. I was glad to get out of there, mn and get my flameproofs on for an aibu post grin

YY we will be flamed any minute for having zero sense of humour. wink

No beach here in Brum sad

I have a super fireproof cape wink The edges are a little frazzled though grin Maybe i should get a slogan printed on it like aibu?

I don't think you will be flamed. That's pretty gross and I quite like the 'I've been inside for 9 months' babygros.

Ooh this is v tasteful.

This is a bit realistic.

OMG shock

GiveMumABreak Mon 06-May-13 16:44:19

So wrong!

RuckAndRoll Mon 06-May-13 16:45:01

That really is quite sad. YANBU.

But having said that, I like the 'Been inside for 9 months' ones too.

DH wanted to buy one last night that said 'Mummy doesn't want your advice' it might be true but I would never dress my child in it!

froginthepond Mon 06-May-13 16:46:05

Am i just a prude? Im not keen on either of those links sad I do agree with the person that said they liked the "been inside for 9 months" baby gros and i dont mind the ones that say "party at my crib 2am bring a bottle" they make me grin but some just make my stomach turn.

froginthepond Mon 06-May-13 16:48:42

Im shock at that whip em out one! Im cringing at the thought that there is a child out there wearing that baby bib right now. confused

I don't really like any clothes with slogans on apart from maybe DS1's Bazinga T Shirt.

SoleSource Mon 06-May-13 16:50:15

I don't like any of them. Or the clothing that says 'made with pure love' etc


I saw this pushchair in town the other day. Just why?

SoleSource Mon 06-May-13 16:51:50

I have seen that pushchair too!

Double barf

what's wrong with people, putting adult jokes and sexual innuendo on babys clothing is just vile!

froginthepond Mon 06-May-13 16:54:23

oooooh i like the sound of a bizinga t shirt! ds who is 3.6 loves the big bang grin i think he just likes seeing if there are going to be any robots. The only slogan tshirt he has is a Beastie Boys one and we both love it grin I would happily buy him a Beatles yellow Submarine one too as its his favourite CD and he plays it all the time in his room. I dont tend to buy slogan stuff though.

Saw a little girl is supermarket just now with a liverpool jersey on with BITCH 1 on the back. How is any of that cute?

EarlyInTheMorning Mon 06-May-13 16:59:43

I hate slogans on adult t-shirts anyway but something like that on a child is just pathetic.

I saw a changing mat last week with "9 months ago my Mummy read 50 shades of grey and here I am" <shudder>hmm

roofio87 Mon 06-May-13 17:17:15

I saw a baby gro that said "if you think I'm yummy wait till you meet my mummy" that is cute, no need for a child to be wearing clothes with a swear word on. but having heard how some people speak to their children I'm not surprised!!

C999875 Mon 06-May-13 17:20:27

I'm with you. I hate t shirts with disrespectful slogans written on them and then we have a society that wonders why some children have no respect. I was a frilly smock dress type of mummy for my child obviously. Absolutly each to their own but I hate to see children dressed like adults. xxx

PipkinsPal Mon 06-May-13 17:26:08

YANBU but I think I would be saddened rather than shocked. Saddened that the little girl's mother thinks it is acceptable to dress her daughter this way. My Mother wouldn't let us wear tee-shirts with our names on them when we were kids in case a stranger said "Hello Pipkins" and we would then think that person knew us and we would go with them. And just to be smug, lots of lovely beaches in Swansea/Gower and I was at one today wink

miffybun73 Mon 06-May-13 17:30:24

YANBU at all, just makes me feel really very sad for the little girl.

zeldapinwheel Mon 06-May-13 17:38:35

I saw an approx 3 year old wearing a t-shirt saying "hooters girl in training". Classy.

miffybun73 Mon 06-May-13 17:56:26

shock at zelda

Pollydon Mon 06-May-13 18:01:14

Hell.No shock

MadameJosephine Mon 06-May-13 18:11:58

Ick no, buying for dd1 (8) is tragically hard but i'm used to it - i shop online for her as i am able to skip past tarty clothes to normal 8 year old girl stuff.

Buying for dd2 (due august) has been a revalation confused dd1 had a top from adams ''future princess'' <boak now but i was young!> but the things i've seen for babies now make me sad leopard print and nasty slogans that a grown woman should be ashamed to wear never mind put on a baby.

fluffyraggies Mon 06-May-13 18:23:08

madameJo shockshock sad sad

In fact more sad than shock

I once saw a girl, about 5 years old, with the tshirt 'I'm proof my mum is easy!' On it.

I was, and still am, totally gobsmacked!!

Have read the thread and agree with you all, but really have only come on to applaud shipwrecked's name and offer her some mango juice smile

lljkk Mon 06-May-13 19:41:16

I think it's hilarious <<Shallow>>.
I wouldn't buy one for my child, or even let her wear it, mind.

DH at the beach with 3 DC today!

ShipwreckedAndComatose Mon 06-May-13 19:47:28

Ah yes! With goldfish shoals nibbling at my toes...

Thanks grin

All of them are vile. How can anyone think they are cute or funny?
