Hey there, daddy-o...

On my way to campus today, I was snapped out of my "I'm really getting sick of grad school and many things that accompany it" funk-o-rama when, while waiting at a crossroads, I noted a very handsome man across the street carrying a small child, laughing and talking softly.

Hellooooooo! HOT?


I'm sorry, but a man with a child is just a beautiful sight to me*. Of course, just the man is fine too, especially with this guy. I guess the next step might be man with dog, but I really hate dog hair indoors so I'd have to find out about outdoor kennel options before taking any more mental time to consider the guy's hotness factor.

Harken ye, female and male perspectives, do you feel this way about seeing men or women you find attractive and then if they're also with a kid, the hot-to-trot-ness rises?

Gosh, does this really mean I'm attracted primarily to people I can't pursue? Oh, but what if it wasn't his child and he's hip 'n single? What if he's widowed? No, I didn't put any thought into this during the 2.4 minutes of my observations.

Comments, please!

[*Caveat: fear not, if you are a man I either (a) already know personally with a kid; (b) are a man with a kid and whose better half I also know; or (c) are a single man with a kid but I'm just not feelin' the va-voom, then you are not included in this category. I think that's a good thing; otherwise, my totally creepy factor would emerge and that's just not something that should happen! ;)]

"...laughing and talking softly."

Yep, I'm with you on having felt dreamy about a man caressing a tot's forehead or picking them up with a hug and a happy sigh, and I've given it some thought...

I think I'm attracted to seeing a person be affectionate and loving and small children are designed to bring that out. Plump (or not), irresistible, amazing.

It's like the kiddos let the guy show his wacky nurturing side. Cheers to men who are comfortable with children! I know there are sad cases of innappropriateness, and that makes those men who are able to work with kids that much more amazing (they have to prove peoples' suspicions wrong).

I'm married. I NEVER look at other men. HA! ;-) Man and child is hot stuff. Seriously.

Dat there's yer ovaries talkin'

But for real: Anne Geddes aught to do her self a favor and stop taking pictures of babies in flower pots, and start taking pictures of babies in man-hands.

I'd buy checks with those images.

i tend to chase things i can't have too. is it the fun of the chase, or when you can't achieve the goal you can justify it by saying, "well it was an unattainable goal?"

kids love me.
