jared padalecki in the supernatural gag reel → season seven
This is my son, Chester, who is nearly 4. He was invited to his friend Chloe’s birthday party today, the theme was prince and princesses. He asked if he could go as Sleeping Beauty, so I bought him a dress and put a cute little clip in his hair.
We arrived at the party to the following comments from the adults present:
“Oh that is just cruel.”
"Why did you make him wear a dress?"
"Poor little man, what’s your mummy playing at?"
"He’s going to hate you when he grows up."
"No way I’d let my son dress like a girl."
The fact is, Chester is almost completely gender neutral. I let him wear what he wants, be it boys or girls clothes, and he plays with whatever toys he likes. This usually involves him holding tea parties while wearing his pink Minnie Mouse top, jeans and a tiara. The guests are more often than not a mixture of Winnie The Pooh characters, dinosaurs, Barbie, Dora and solders, and they’re usually transported in his favorite fire engine.
When my husband arrived at the party later on, he was subjected to endless ridicule from the other dad’s present about how I must keep his balls in my back pocket because otherwise he would have put his foot down and not allowed Chester out like that. Oh, and by the way, our other son dressed as Ariel. When my husband pointed out that the boys were happy, and the mother of the birthday child made a point of saying how wonderful she thought it was that we allowed them freedom of choice and expression, they then stopped talking about it to our faces and started muttering about us behind our backs.
Interestingly enough, not a single child said a word about their choice of costumes, other than to compliment Chester on his new dress.
And then I swear we all were Mrs Hudson.
New Sherlock trailer (X)
Sobbbbbb.sob. The last one breaks my heart majorly.
This confirms (for me) what I’ve been thinking since the “thrill of the chase” clip; Sherlock is going to be brought so low in this episode. They’re showing all the bravado and hubris, but remember that face at the restaurant. And John’s anger. And the fact that they have never once had any qualms about showing Sherlock’s embarrassment. This one’s going to be an emotional fire walk.
re: my url
cas becomes enamored with a nearby asian grocery store and always keeps the bunker stocked up with boxes of mangoes, bottles of aloe drinks, and bags of various vegetable flavored chips.
sam and dean think it’s the cutest thing in the world and don’t even complain when cas starts putting mangoes into literally every recepie he cooks for them. ;U;
