When I first saw the baby, I grinned and thought PhotoBomber!  But the kid is in almost every photograph.  This had to be deliberate.  The house is empty, so the kid doesn't live there.  Is it the realtor's kid, or did the owners want their kid in the photos?  Either way, eyeroll.

So not only do you need to check for termites, but you need to get the baby exterminator out there too? That's going to cost extra, hopefully the seller will pick it up in closing costs...

No, it doesn't teleport; but I'm sure if you paid the extra shipping and handling charges they could have it to you via Fedex the next day.

The kid wasn't there when the realtor took the photos. A friend's cousin's ex's hairstylist said the baby in the photos looks just like a kid that died in that neighborhood 15 years ago.

I'm so glad that I live in Texas. 500 more sqft, muuuuuch bigger piece of property, great neighborhood, excellent city (although it did have its first murder in like 50 years a few months ago), booming area, and my house was brand new and $70K less.

And only 25 minutes from Downtown Dallas* (*without traffic).

Now if you excuse me, i'm going to go home and kiss my house.....and my hot neighbor.

Elzar: Someone needs to fire these amateur hour realtors... Do they even want to sell these houses anymore?


You're kidding, right?

Do you have any idea how many people have looked at this otherwise unremarkable house BECAUSE there was a baby in the photos?
Sure, 99.99% of them aren't in the market for a house in WA. But the realtor got the word out about the house, and that is exactly what their job is.

Having a baby in the pictures also makes it easier for parents...and especially parents-to-be...to imagine their kids living there. Heck, as crazy as pregnant women get, I wouldn't be surprised if there were some making completely irrational decisions to buy that house, because of the baby in the pictures.

Babies climb on things. When my kid was that age, he loved to climb things on his own. Counter-tops and bathroom sinks were the first place he would head.

But you were usually close by with one or both hands free to catch the baby.  The realtor obviously isn't.

My babby loves to sit on the bathroom counter and brush her teeth. I am standing right behind her with my hand on her back the entire time. I cringed at the one with the babby leaning into the sink. That lean move is typically followed by random flinging backwards.

I have video that proves I was across the room with a camera in hand when the kid discovered gravity.
He cried when he fell off the table, that was about it. No bruises, no concussion, etc.

Toddlers aren't THAT fragile. I wouldn't chuck one out a second story window, but they literally spend all their time falling down. They get pretty good at it.

I thought they only came in quarters, one each for sink, toilet, shower and tub.

0.1 = closet and an empty soda bottle?

I had darned near white hair as a baby, moved to dark brown over the years and now is graying - maybe I'll close that circle! My wife's hair is black, both kids started out with dark hair that has changed to light brown. Genetics... how does that work?

So you got lucky he didn't fall and hit his head either killing or crippling him. Because you know, that shiat actually happens. To be clear, I'm not calling for Family Services to get involved. I think if parents want to be stupid, they should be allowed to be. If you wanna play stupid risky games with your kid's life, by all means. If you wanna leave him/her alone in the bathtub because there's only a few inches of water in it, go for it. But that you defend it as an acceptable practice means you're stupid. At least realize and admit you're taking a risk.

The hospital will take care of that when they have to take the kid in with a broken limb.
