Time Magazine: Are You Mom Enough?

This was too easy that I actually had a difficult time coming up with a trademark #8BD lead image. I hemmed and hawed over options like this, to this, to that… and somehow, I still feel like I’ve let you down.

Anyways, the latest issue of Time Magazine is the equivalent to a Paul/Blake lob city slaaaaam dunk for social media. Everyone is talking about the cover featuring nipple-magnet Jamie Lynne Grumet, a somewhat attractive a-cup L.A. mommy blogger who continues to breastfeed her 3-year-old son in skinny jeans and will continue until he’s five. Her blog is Iamnotthebabysitter.com, which has since crashed due to traffic (even though she’s had half the number of monthly visits we get… until now).

8BitDad tech note: don’t host your sh*t on e-relativity.com.

Most of us just cave in and buy one of those little kid floor potties, then slosh toddler poop everywhere and stub our toes on it every night. Not Fernando.
