Ok, have you seen this new baby onesie with a mop attached to it yet? Yes — I said a baby onesie with a mop attached to it, as in a little suit that your baby can wear so he can practice his crawling skills and mop your floors at the exact same time. (Whaaattt?)
For the bargain price of $34.99, you can order your very own “Baby Mop” from BetterThanPants.com, and turn your lazy baby into a chore-lovin’, floor-moppin’ little worker bee.
The retailer promises the onesie will teach your baby a strong work ethic all while giving him exercise and improving muscle tone, and apparently there are plenty of parents who just can’t resist this thing — because the website shows that inventory is already getting low.
And while most parents will look at this thing and laugh and assume it’s nothing more than a fun joke — if people are snatching these things up, you gotta wonder if there are moms and dads out there who are truly buying into the idea of getting their babies to chip in and do their fair share of the housework. I mean, we spend so much time trying to keep our homes tidy as it is — why not put the little ones to work on the floors so we have more time to do other stuff? (Duh, I’m kidding.)
If anything, the Baby Mop makes for a great photo opportunity for sending out quirky holiday cards this year. I guess maybe it’s safe to assume that’s why parents are so eager to purchase these things?
Would you buy this onesie? Better yet, would you actually use it?
