Here, at Mommy Shorts, we thought Evil Babies were SO LAST WEEK, but it appears the rest of the world didn't catch on until this past weekend.
The Evil Baby Glare-Off made the front page of the Huffington Post on Sunday, MSN put it as one of their top trending items on Monday and then on Tuesday, it made it's way onto The Today Show. Which was AWESOME, except for the small detail of Al Roker calling me Mommy Pants instead of Shorts.
Learn your hemlines, Al!
I thought it would be nice to provide a list of all the outlets where the Glare-Off appeared because 1) I like to feed my own ego and 2) so all the parents involved can see where their kids landed.
The sites that covered the Glare-Off (some with my permission and most without) used different photos (including some from my fanpage that didn't make the cut) so have yourself a look and see if your kid wound up on the news in Viet Nam.
I'm not kidding.
But before I use this post to revel in my international fame, I wanted to do one more thing for all the evil babies that made this contest such a success. Thanks to an idea from Neil's mother, I'm giving all the contestants the opportunity to convince us they are way less evil than they originally appeared.
It's amazing what a dimple and a toothless smile can do to hide the demon within…
I included Coralie's shirt above because on the Huffington Post (where everything must be turned into a political debate— read the comments), many people accused Coralie of being a mini-Romney. Clearly, that's not the case.
And now for the listing of sites that covered the Glare-Off. I hope you don't mind your child's picture on a site in South Korea, because I have no idea who and how to contact someone to take it down.
The Today Show (watch the clip)
MSN (used 20 random photos from my fanpage)
KTLA (video clip from the news)
Next up, I'll be doing a Halloween costume contest. No prizes, just for fun. Except if you ring my doorbell on Wednesday, I might consider giving you a mini Kit Kat. If I haven't already eaten them all myself.
Submit pictures all next week by posting them to wall of the Mommy Shorts fanpage and awards will be given out on Friday.
Have a good weekend!

all kinds of awesome going on in this post. 🙂
I’m disappointed the Today Show didn’t spend more time on you 🙁
Bambini giù lo sguardo!
That’s awesome, especially in Italian!
OMG… Eamon… My uterus just twitched. His Momma needs to call Gerber NOW. 🙂
There’s no way those two pictures of Lil D are of the same kid.
Man the difference between evil and adorable is amazing!
Congrats on all the features, both home and abroad! Love the kids’ non-evil pics. I especially love that were prolly taken seconds before/after the evil ones.
Holy moly! You’re getting some serious exposure! Awesome!
omg so so awesome! thanks for doing this!!! these babies are all just beautiful and adorable!!! Seriously in love with Ronnie, what a smile!!!
I can’t get over how many international sites picked it up! I mean, wow… just wow.
You’re Internet-famous. 🙂
I LOVE THIS! Isn’t it funny how kids personalities can change in an instant?
congrats on your international fame!
Congrats on the exposure!
I submitted Lila’s cute pic. Hope I’m not too late.
how wonderful! I love all the coverage that the contest got.
AND, i especially love the sweet pictures juxtaposed with the glare off ones– nice touch!
i just watched the Today Show clip, Mommy Pants. ahahhaaha
that was awesome, especially how much the hosts laughed and laughed and laughed.
Sandy – I assure you it is in fact her. She has an entirely different persona saved for grandparents and teachers.. See for yourself –>
I love the transformation an how you did it side-by-side with their glare pics.
Nice to know Lil D isn’t the only one who can go Jenkyll/Hyde.
What a nice idea! Every baby is adorable with a smile!
Congrats on the seriously international coverage.
I read Korean site one and it says don’t copy and use their article without permission as if they got your permission?!?? WT$$?
I love how all babies have two faces…lol
Just FYI, you also made it onto an interactive news site in Hong Kong. I’d find you the link, but I’m too lazy.
Haha, that is fantastic!
Thank you! We are in love with Ronnie too;) All of his school pics look like his evil side though. We will have lots of submissions for future years.
Awesome! Great news! You are a rising mom-blogging-star! (Even little ol’ me couldn’t type fast enough to share your scarey baby face off!)
Exciting stuff – congrats.
Awesome! Love these pictures and thanks for including Coralie’s shirt! 🙂
Hello! I understand this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
Does managing a well-established blog such as yours require
a large amount of work? I am completely new to blogging however I
do write in my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and feelings online.
Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
