It's Actually Suprisingly Easy Bein' Green

blue and green all over

James has these frogs boots, a hand-me-down from the sons of our wonderful friends B. & J., and these boots are the closet thing he has to a security blanket. When he sees the boots, he begins to ribbit frantically, except it comes out "BIBBIT! BIBBIT!" and so the boots are called The Bibbits. Many mornings, while still in his footie pajamas, James will retrieve The Bibbits from their home beside the front door and demand assistance in donning The Bibbitts, posthaste, if you please, he has places to go. ("BIBBIT!")

See, like any fashionista worth his salt, Jimmy knows that these boots are the perfect accessory, his ace in the sartorial hole, and can pull together just about any outfit. He sports The Bibbits with pants, overalls, shortalls, swimming suits, and even the occasional diaper.

wellipet

And while the Bibbits are obviously perfect for puddle-jumping after a storm...

rocks

...they are equally nice for casual strolling...

path

...or swinging at the playground (in OHMYLAWD the filthiest swing this side of Filthytown)...

swinger

...or fleeing in naked terror from an unknown assailant, armed with only your wiffle ball.

flee

And though The Bibbits are indeed fly and we've tried to support our son's footwear passion, there are some problems. First of all, PVC boots are not the best summer footwear choice, and when we slooooowly yank them off after a vigorous play session, his frightfully sweaty, pink toddler feet are approximately 178 degrees. And, I'm no podiatrist, but that ain't right.

The other problem: The Bibbits are getting smaller every day, and it will be a sad, sad morning when The Bibbits can no longer be crammed onto Jimmy's feet. I suppose I could cut the toes off, make Bibbit sandals, but the toes are obviously the part that give The Bibbits their bibbit-y charm, and surely the boy would be forever traumatized if his mother took a serrated knife to the faces of his dearest rubber friends. ("BIBBIT?")

So, in closing, if anyone out there has green frog Wellipets in sizes 2T through, say, adult male 13, kindly drop me a line. I know a young man who might be interested.

Ribbit

Until then, you shall know him by his Bibbits. ("BIBBIT!")

I cannot wait to see the slide show you put together for his wedding reception!

Oh, Jenn, the damage I could do...

ebay, baby, ebay ...

amy t sharp said...

Finnian wore his green frog boots today too! They are sweet!

The Cheap Chick said...

They really look like Kermit THE Frog, don't they.

And I am always armed with a Wiffle ball. Sometimes a Nerf dart or two. You never know what may be lurking in the yard....

ewe are here said...

Those are awesome wellies... my Ramekin is verrrry attached to his red wellies with little white hearts all over them. I'm dreading the day he outgrows them.

Jennifer H said...

Ebay,size 9 (what size is he?) with a Buy It Now price of $1.99.

I'm sure you could just run them through the dishwasher if you don't want someone else's footiness. :-)

Jennifer H said...

oops, it cut off the link. Just search ebay for Wellipets, and it's the first result.

dharmamama said...

Very sweet. A friend's son had a similar pair... and she went out and bought the next 2 sizes, too. He wore them, literally, every day for a year and a half. No permanent damage to the feet! lol

Jenn said...

How cute!

Lisa Milton said...

I can see the bibbit appeal; my boy wore his boots bare.

As always, I love the pictures. He is so cute.

hippyhappyhay said...

Cripes, I thought you were going to talk about recycling, and I almost cried.

Those boot scare me. Get the boy some real frogs. Bibbit, bibbit.

The Girl Next Door said...

Those are THE COOLEST BOOTS ever. Why didn't they make such things when my kids were small? You have one awesome boy there. With great taste. Sigh. Do they make them in my size? And can I wear them to work??

smalltownmom said...

Those are the cutest! Both my sons went through MANY pairs of red rain boots in increasing sizes. Fortunately the boot obsession was not as severe as the Batman t-shirt obsession.

Magpie said...

we've had a yellow boot obsession - i have a picture of her asleep in her crib in them.

Mike Golch said...

Jenn said that she could not wait to see the slide show for his wedding.it is more fun to hald that as blackmale to keep him in line.like my uncle hasdone with som of the imbarassing stuff he took when we were kids.

Angie said...

Too cute! My girls had these exact same 'bibbits' - but they were sold long ago at a garage sale.....sorry:(

i am very mary said...

Perhaps some Bibbit talcum powder is in order.

stu said...

Mason (almost 10) has a set of yellow rain boots he insists on wearing like they are his only footwear sometimes. He will wear them (sans socks) with shorts on a hot day and boy can his almost-teen feet generate some super funk.

Great pictures Melanie.

-Stu

Dr. Cason said...

Great photos.

I can't think of an easy solution. Poor baby just might have to bite the bullet and adopt another little animal boot! You could play it up and say they need a good home. :)

myra@wemakethree said...

those are the most precious photos! i wish i had found those when my son was that age. they sure create photo ops!

dkuroiwa said...

what is it with kids and wearing only a diaper and funky footwear?? My youngest used to wear his cowboy boots like that!!!
Too cute for words!!
I wonder if they would be as cute on adult feet....and with no diaper..somehow, i don't think it would be quite the same!!!
deb.

reneedesigns said...

Too cute. Maybe check e-bay or consignment stores for some more.

Mrs. G. said...

"...or fleeing in naked terror from an unknown assailant, armed with only your wiffle ball."

My best laugh today. That face.

Meghan said...

We also have a love affair with green froggy boots at our house....my daughter likes to wear them with her swimsuit while riding her bike! I love the pictures!

Jozet at Halushki said...

Too flippin' cute!

LOVE the BIBBITS!

stephanie (bad mom) said...

The wiffle ball pic is, indeed, the best laugh of the day. Kinda mean I suppose but there it is.

I'm imagining we will hear the roaring lament here in Washington when the Bibbits are no more...Maybe you could plant some fun flowers in them?

Stacey said...

He sure does love those boots, doesn't he. As well he should - they are cute.
And what have the people in your town been doing in that swing?? Gross.

Rima said...

You know, I never knew what all the fuss was about wellies until I tried on a pair, just this afternoon. I think I could live in them, too!

MamaBird said...

whoa, a one week vacay and you come out with bibbits?! I was just musing about the fallibility of hand me down bootage with my SIL but you've proven us wrong. ebay away... love yr new banner, happy summer!

Scary Mommy said...

Those boots are seriously one of the reasons I wanted boys!!

Sojourner said...

Froggies are equal opportunity boots. Littl girls like them too. Really Melanie your kids are too cute for words. And I am with Mrs G on the best line of the day! Great photos!

bipolarlawyercook said...

I think you're gonna have to hang those Bibbits from a mobile in his room when he outgrows them, so at least he can look up and see them hanging over his bed.

Minnesota Matron said...

Poor sweet-heart! My man wears the same cowboy boots every day, all day (or bare feet). He's the only five-year old at the playground in gear: cowboy boots, army pants, long-sleeve shirt. Clothes define him. He said to me the other day that he's scared he'll grow out of his boots! Like you, me too!

xtine said...

If all else fails, you can just cut the Bibbits' mouths open so they have toe-tongues...Heeh :)

Hello. And Bye.

Vickula said...

Too sweet! Hope you found at least one pair in a larger size! and not the replicas either! My son inherited his wellipets froggy boots from his older brother and has snubbed all others, despite the fact that he can now only wear them partially loaded onto his feet. (he'll be 2 at the end of this month) I found your page because I, too, was looking for a larger pair or pairs for him! I'll let you know if I find any! I saw some bigger ones on ebay... size 12 I think.. I'm still looking for size 8, 9 or 10.

Вопрос:   Я очень надеюсь пообщаться с гармоничной девушкой. Времени после занятий катастрофичеcки нет, а в праздники часто приходится тоже  бегать по разным инстанциям. В общественных местах знакомиться не удобно.  Пока на сайтах встречаю  как правило продажных девушек. Порекомендуйте вариант решения проблемы, пожалуйста. Заранее большое спасибо J)).

Как говорилось на Seexi.net Живу в области в 80 км. от Москвы, парни тут не очень ухоженые (не ну я не в восторге от метросексуалов, но грязь под ногтями меня также не возбуждает). Я девушка ухоженая и милая. Многие ко мне клеятся, но мне они не нравятся. Очень тяжело тут сыскать любовника, в большинстве случаев все тупые, а меня еще так как и ум возбуждает! Встречалась с парнем из Москвы, но расстались. Вот уже 3 месяца без секса..боюсь как бы не перетекло в 3 года! В Москве бываю не часто! Что делать? Отдаться быдлу я не хочу!!!

How do you keep out the burgeoning viruses and Trojan horses, prowling in the cyberspace? There is any amount of plans like spam, adware, adware, malware and hackers ready to attack at the earliest chance. With no the knowledge of world wide web consumers, credit card figures or passwords can move onto the improper hands. These security difficulties need to have to be dealt with urgently and right here are two important ideas for you.

1. The very first action to guard your laptop or computer is to install a excellent virus scanner and firewall. Let us encounter the specifics, Microsoft's firewall is just not adequate, and so are from your ISP and modems. No modem arrives with created in antivirus software. Thus you have to get and put in one particular. You can select from a amount of virus scanners and firewalls, but reputable between them are: Norton, AVG, McAfee, and ZoneAlarm. AVG and ZoneAlarm are cost-free software program.

two. A [url=http://scrapeboxmarketplace.com/scrapebox-proxies ]scrapebox proxy [/url] aids on-line safety. This server hides your IP, which is special and unchangeable even if you want to. This IP identification must be held magic formula. If a cybercriminal accesses it, he can get your data, and use it to your detriment.

In this entire approach a proxy operates discreetly. When you consider to entry a hyperlink, the browser informs the server in normal instances, while a proxy server makes certain that it receives this details first, and filters the data. Even if the internet server tries to know your IP, it will only be accessing the IP of the proxy server. Even so, the proxy server can access all your facts, and as a result you ought to go for a proxy server which you can count upon.

Since Proxy Servers assist On the web Security., you must know how to set up one. Faulty set up can guide to an unsafe proxy - therefore meticulously stick to the a variety of methods.

1. A excellent and anonymous proxy is a need to. The Net has a entire lot of paid out and cost-free proxy servers. While compensated proxies give much better anonymity, cost-free proxies can also be opted. You should zero in on a great Proxy Server which will support your On the internet Stability.

two. Right after you have decided on your proxy, you need to have to configure your Web browser to use it. This procedure is diverse from one particular to yet another browser. If you are using World wide web Explorer, here is how to put in the proxy. Open World wide web Explorer, go to Internet link, click on relationship, pick the suitable button for LAN or dial-up link, and click on the configurations. Empower use a proxy server, and type IP of proxy - which you ought to have pointed out on a paper, ahead of commencing to put in, adopted by port in the respective fields. When you click on on "Okay" twice, you are now obtaining a Proxy Server for On the web Stability.

3. It is not adequate even right after you have completed configuring your browser. You just cannot forget it. If you have opted for a totally free Proxy, it may well not be working immediately after some time. Consequently, you must hold an eye on the proxy, and continue to be protected. Use Proxy Servers for On the internet Security and it will alleviate you of whole lot of concerns.
