This little guy.
He was in close proximity to Bossy all day yesterday, as his family situated themselves on a plot of sand directly next to Bossy. Bossy admits she doesn’t like kids. Well, that’s not true — but she isn’t one of those people who love babies just because they’re babies, or thinks all kids are adorable. She enjoys kids, as Nicholas Cage says in The Family Man, but on a case by case basis.
Enter this little guy. He was completely happy, self-contained, self-directed, smart, content, flirty, and lit from within. He had his little shit completely together, all day long. Also, he looked like Matt Damon.

Is he wearing one of those surf-type shirts? God, I could eat him with a spoon.

The best kind of babies are little laid-back beach dudes.

Yeah. Pretty much all I wish for my son is that he have his little shit together. Looking like Matt Damon wouldn’t be bad, either. Though unlikely.

Thank you Bossy, for completely and succinctly summing up how I feel about kids. YAY for kids with their little shit together!!!

Oh dear gah, bring us more kids like this. And more adults who look like Matt Damon.

At first I thought this might have been a old picture of Bossy’s son….still very cute though!

I’ve always been drawn to toddlers with no necks as well.

That kid is kind of glowing! I like BOSSY’s philosophy on kids, and liking them case by case basis.

He does have a certain aura about him…like, literally. He does!
David saysSeptember 4, 2010 at 12:22 pm
I like most babies, but that’s because most babies like me.

I’m with Bossy. Some babies are great, others not so much.
