    Friday Funnies

    It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Friday Funnies post. Maybe we’re losing our funny over here? Man, I hope not! Slowly, but surely I’ve been accumulating some stories that tickled my funny bone. Enjoy! ACRONYMS ARE TOUGH  My daughter and son were playing some sort of game. I don’t know what it was. I just know they weren’t fighting and they had created costumes. These costumes involved using eyeliner to draw whiskers on their faces. The point is THEY WEREN’T FIGHTING. My son’s character (I’m fairly certain he was a cat) suffered a tragic accident. He was lying down with his “paws” up in the air. It was all…

    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… (source: @leahgay on instagram) Yep. This. All of…

    Friday Funnies #2

    Here are a few items that put the happy in my dance this week. Enjoy! via GIPHY My son started taking fencing lessons. If you have a little boy or girl who is obsessed with all things swords and lightsabers, then this is the sport for them. Here’s a conversation my son and I had when we arrived at fencing practice last week. Son: Mom! Did you see those lunches last week? Me: Lunches? They had lunch here? How did I miss that? Son: No, mom. The lunches I made with my sword. Me: Oh! You mean lunges? Son: Yeah. That’s what I said. At that point I started laughing…

    Who is ready for the weekend? *raises both hands* I’m always ready for the weekend, but September weekends are especially welcome. This lady nails why September is the Worst and does so in a funny and relatable way. Since I’ve been completely serious halfway joking that I’m dying a slow death by homework, I appreciated her take on things. (source) On our train ride home from school recently, my 6-year-old was reading aloud the advertisements inside the train car. He got to this particular ad. It’s an important message. There’s no doubt about that. His finger was pointing to the words and he said them very deliberately and loud enough for everyone near us…

    Friday Funny

    I recently started reading How to Eat Fried Worms by Thomas Rockwell with my children. Do you remember that book? One boy takes a bet to eat 15 worms in 15 days and if he does his friends will give him $50. A movie was made in 2006 based on the book. From what I can tell from this trailer, the premise is a little different, but something my kids would probably eat right up. Pun definitely intended. My kids are loving this book. It has the kid factor, the gross factor and the “would I really do it” factor going on. On the day we started reading this book, I took the kids…

    Laugh Out Loud Moments

    Some pretty stinkin’ funny things happen during motherhood. I mean, they aren’t funny at the time, but later. I’m sure they are funny later. Right? Right? Like that time I let my son pee in a sippy cup…in the backseat of the car…in front of my husband’s office. I won’t even tell you what happened to my hand that was holding the cup. I do need to get more hand sanitizer though. Never hold the cup. Words to live by. And, of course, it is perfectly reasonable to wear the fire hat while watering grass seed. The good news is that his hard work paid off and we finally have…
