OctoMom to Kid: "Do Not Play with the Paparazzi!"

As if OctoMom didn't already have enough on her plate, now one of her kids is setting play dates with the paparazzi.

OctoMom's parenting regimen is in such an altered reality, even she had to laugh yesterday when she yelled at a member of her swelling brood, "Do not play with the paparazzi!"

But it was too late ... the kid had already picked up a snapper's camera and shot pics of grandma, the dog, and anything else he could get into the frame.

Wasn't bad either. And now at least someone in the family has transferable job skills...
