    I must be missing something. What’s so cute about teaching Tripp to stick his tongue out at anyone?

    • Sami

      You can’t be serious!

    • section9

      Well, Bristol is teaching Tripp that sometimes as he goes through is life to come, he’ll run into an a$$hole, like you for example. So, if the individual acts like an a$$hole, as you just did, instead of getting into a fight or saying something snarky, just stick your tongue out and walk away.
      Moms are like that sometime.

    • Gilly

      I agree Kathy. There is nothing “cute” about it. Based on this and his language from an episode of her cancelled reality show I would say this poor chap doesn’t have a chance. What a shame. He will learn to be irresponsible and entitled from his unwed mother and to not finish what he starts from his grandmother. Not good odds for him :(

      • liberty

        Gilly if you were looking in the mirrow when you said nothing cute about it I would have to agree. I can tell by your posts that you are just a jealous SKANKY HAG that when people see you they run away screaming in horror for they have never seen anything so horrifying in their whole life.

      • Sarah Strickland

        Gilly- How would you know if he has a chance, he is a little boy, for you to say things about a child that way is rude. It is possible it is something they do together all the time. Sticky your tongue out is not that big of a deal. Once again he is a child, how many children have you seen do that????????? I do it to my kids when we are being silly. All children go through phases. Get over your self already and leave Bristol alone. At least she is there being a mother to her child.

        Bristol, You keep doing what your doing dont let people like that bother you, you are a great mother and just always remember that .

  • Lakerfanalways

  • Mae

    He’s so precious. I love how lighthearted you are. He really seemed to enjoy the show Monday. He was glowing! What a good, sweet boy you have.

  • Rissi

    Aw! So cute, Bristol.

    Great job on DWTS on Monday – I hope you go far. No matter what the judges say, you were great! Never forget that.

  • Abigail

    Bristol I think you are doing amazing, I enjoyed watching Dancing with the Stars. And Kathy Really? Just dont comment if you dont like it. I teach my son how to do that! Really, get over yourself and move on.

  • Eddie Greenberg

    I also think that you were great Bristol. I held my breath until you and Mark were safe. This is your year! Very proud of you to!!!!!!!!

  • Kirstin

    This photo is so sweet! I voted for you and will continue to do so!! You have really imporoved and I can’t wait to see what else you and Mark have to offer!

  • Yvonne

    Adorable picture of both of you, Bristol.
    Kathy .. I think maybe you need to lighten up.

  • Fado

    No Kathy has a point. Bristol is a young, somewhat immature still, parent. She doesn’t yet appreciate that kids need their parents to be parents and not their friends. We saw on her reality show how she has zero disciplinary skills. Kathy’s comment speaks to that. It would be inappropriate to encourage your young child to stick his tongue out. For starters its brattish. And it sets a bad precedence.

  • opditch

    Dislike, sorry, me too.

  • Thomas Hubbard

    Uck: Best check your tongue before you pull it back in, it’s hard telling what may of landed on it, as my Grandmother use to say. Trip he’s a Trip hope to meet him some day.

  • Tim D Enchanter

    Now THAT’s a cute couple !!!

  • Abby

    Love love you guys! Such an inspiration!

  • Luiz Tadeu Rocha

    Darling Bristol Palin: Health Care! Yesterday I look the Vídeo Dancing with Stars , You and Mark: Happy! I Like very muth! Hope! Good Luck! God look We! Caress, Kiss,

  • Fado

    I wonder if triPp realizes that he is mommy’s little moneymaker. Possibly, even at a young age. Messes up the parent child relationship I imagine. Careful there, Bristol.

  • MiddleRoader

    Looks like a sweet mother-son moment to me! For one thing, we have no context to this pic. We don’t know who stuck his/her tongue out first. Children need to learn that certain actions are appropriate in certain times and places but not in others. Everybody sticks their tongue out doing the Hokey Pokey. Doctors and speech therapists make children stick out their tongues. Some children cannot stick out their tongues and need to be treated. (That’s where the expression “tongue-tied” comes from. If it becomes a behavioral problem—for example, he’s sticking his tongue out at teachers when he’s angry, then you deal with that when it happens. But to me, this looks like a little ritual they do, no worse than rubbing noses, fist-bumping, or making funny faces at each other.

    • Fado

      You must not have seen the cancelled reality show middle roader

      • MiddleRoader

        Not sure where your going with this. I’ve seen few, but not all the episodes. I know Bristol has problems disciplining Tripp, I just don’t see it in this particular picture. Just my opinion.

      • liberty

        Fado I mean Fido woof woof . Wasn’t cancelled dogboy 14 episodes did 14 end of season GET A LIFE LOSER MORON.

  • CJ

    Totally ADORABLE! :)

  • Fado

    Liberty, they moved the show out of prime time when they realized interest wasn’t there and doubled up the episodes to get the show off the air sooner. Tripp is no cuter than most kids, Bristol is well…. Just dull and whiny, her life experience doesn’t teach other teens or teen moms anything and Sarah Pslin isnt a big draw anymore since she finally ended her long drawn out presidential tease

  • Ted A

    Looks like even when working on DWTS Bristol take the time to be a Mommy. Great job Bristol! Keep up the good work. Don’t listen to any of the haters.

  • Carol Dreeszen

    Such a cute picture!!! He is a little sweetheart Bristol! Keep on dancing!! Give it everything you got!! God Bless You Both!
