Have you heard this one?

"Why was Mrs. Potatohead on the kitchen counter?" Waiting for punchline... No- he really was asking about Mrs. Potatohead being on the kitchen counter.

I finish wrestling with her impossible pants belt buckle. "I have a seat belt, like Daddy! Now I can pee standing up!"

Sweeping a little too close to Bree in her high chair. She pats my bum and says "Bahm baahm!"

Mia calling from the bathroom, "Mooooomeeeee! Wipe meeeeee!" Anya answers "Kaaaaay!"


Mia's friend's mommy is pregnant, and Mia's friend is convinced she has a baby in her own tummy, too. "Do you have a baby in your tummy, too, Mia?" "No."
Two Christmas stories and a church video later: "I have a baby boy in my tummy! His name is Jesus!"

Mia watching a commercial for Evan Almighty, "The Office! Oh I love The Office!" Errr...

After three months of non-stop requests for the same song, Mia asks me for the gazillionth time, "Mom, do you like Hootie and the Blowingfish?" I decide to mix things up a little and change my answer for the first time. "You know what, Mia? I think I like them now! Yep, I've decided that because you like them so much, and I like you, I now like them. So, yes, Mia- I like Hootie and the Blowfish." Our very next trip in the car- her "favorite" song is already cued starts playing. "Nooo, Mooom!! Not that one again!"

On a more serious note, did you see the rash on Bree in the Potatohead glasses? I'm thinking combination spicy food, windy cold weather. Well, A+D ointment is to my mom like Windex is to the dad on Big Fat Greek Wedding- and I swear by the stuff myself. It looked this way the next day, but I didn't get a photo 'til two days later:

I don't know how you've made it this long listening to Hootie without losing your mind. I think that goes against the Geneva Convention ...

And that's the cutest Mrs. Potatohead I've ever seen!

Ha- Kelly! I've never thought of my house as a POW camp- but I'm sure now that the idea is in my head I'll begin to draw some parallels...

My son gets that same rash when he eats oranges or canteloupe. Too bad they're his favs cuz he ain't going to stop!

I liked the pee standing up one. :) I was shopping and I found a Thanksgiving sign at JoAnn's that says "Counting Our Blessings" It's really cute and made me think of your blog. I bought the sign and love it. :)

Oh, are they the same ages? That's fun. As far as home schooling goes, I haven't met a lot of people who were home schooled, so I can't really say how weird it makes them. :) But I agree weird isn't so bad these days. And I'm anything BUT patient. I think one of my biggest fears about home schooling is that I'm LAZY and I'm afraid I won't do enough! But as my girls get older and I can talk to them about intelligent things and not just poop and ABCs, I think it'll be a lot more interesting!

I love this post. We have so many Mr. Potato head glasses pictures. Alli used to fall asleep with them on! Hilarious!

Megs said...

haha its so true. I think mom is the reason A&D stayed in business! Mike swears by Burts Bees Banana hand cream for Keinan's dry hands. Same effect...one day, awful - the next morning - perfect!

Wow! Amazing stuff, that ointment.

I love the things kids say!

We went through the pregnant with baby Jesus thing with Princess the year we were expecting the twins.
