Friday Funnies #3

Well, we survived our first week back to school after the holidays. Just barely.

Humor gets me through it all! Here are some moments, pictures and stories that made me laugh out loud recently.


BUSINESS ADVICE FROM KIDS

6-year-old Son: How many subscribers do you have, mom?

Me: On YouTube? I haven’t posted any videos, so zero.

Son: What about on that other thing you do?

Me: My blog? Probably 3? I don’t know. I don’t pay attention.

Son: Wow. That’s bad. That’s really bad. You should work on that.

Me: Thanks, kid.


INTERVIEWING 101

If I ever go back to the corporate world…

Yep. This. All of this.

Especially back in the days when I had to wrestle kids into car seats.

I haven’t driven a car in 6 months though, so let’s just hope I remember how…


LIBRARY CONVERSATIONS

The scenario: sitting on the floor of the library reading a book about knights with my son. I’m not sure why this book prompted the following conversation, but I’ve learned to just go with the flow on these random interruptions.

Son: Jumping jacks are really good, mom.

Me: Yes, I know.

Son: Do you know why?

Me: Well, it’s good exercise…

Son: No, mom. *he sighs heavily like he can’t believe he has to explain this* Because if someone is shooting bullets at your feet, you know how to jump really good so you don’t get hit.

Me: I was going to say that too.


CRAFTING PROBLEMS

This is something my husband would say…


READING FOIBLES

Last month we were reading a book about trains. One of the pages showed a picture similar to this one of Union Station in Colorado.

In a burst of excitement, my 6-year-old pointed to the Union Station sign and triumphantly said, “Mom! There might not be a pickled onion museum, but there’s an ONION station!”

Then I died laughing.

To his credit, the letters u-n often make the “un” sound instead of an “you-n” sound.


I always enjoy the best parenting tweets of the week on the Huffington Post. This is a sampling of what they deemed to be the 50 best parenting tweets of the year.

Honest to goodness, Kate Hall nailed our weekend activity planning on the head. Then, after all is said and done, whichever kid whined the most inevitably says, “that was the funnest activity EVER.”

Then I’m all, “that’s nice because we’re never leaving the house again.”

Yep!! Just what Amy Dillon said. When I ask my kids what they enjoyed most about (insert any activity they were dying to participate in here) they inevitably say, “snack.”

I should just hand them a fruit snack every Saturday and call it good.

If you’ve met my children, then you’ll know that 97.3% of my life is telling one of my kids to put their clothes back on. Don’t even get me started on the shoes.


I hope you had a great week filled with plenty of humor! Happy Friday the 13th, everyone!
