13 Interesting Tidbits About My Week


1. Everyone in our house is now wearing regular underwear. Holla!!

2. When I tell my daughter to be sure and wipe after she goes potty, I really need to specify that she do it with toilet paper and not the kitchen towel.

3. After four years of using a flashlight when I went up in the attic, my husband today informed me that there was a light in the attic. It took him four freaking years to tell me that.

4. Don’t leave a library book sitting on the same desk as a pen. At least don’t do it when you have a 3-year-old in the house.

5. When you lose the library’s copy of the Meet Blue’s Baby Brother, you have to pay them $16.99.

6. A 16-count box of crayons is damn near impossible to find. I’ve decided that teachers are f*cking with us when they make the supply lists.

7. My husband sending me to the store to buy any garage item is the same as me sending him to the store to buy maxi pads. It shouldn’t be done.

8. When PMSing, I can justify eating a tub of cookie dough.

9. Eli and I had a long conversation about how the toothfairy knows she has a tooth to pick up. We decided she is either notified by email or she has a watch that beeps.

10. I’m looking for business attire to wear on my New York trip next month, and I realized that things have changed a little bit in the last six years (the last time I needed business attire).

11. I discovered that it doesn't matter if you haven't seen someone for two years - they're still going to invite you to their Mary Kay party.

12. I have realized that the more my daughter’s little attitude increases, the more I start channeling my mother. I can’t tell you how many times I have recently said, “Watch your tone, young lady!”

13. If promised sexual favors, my husband can put up an entire wallpaper boarder in one hour.

Your list rocks! I got a good laugh, but the sad part is, I can agree with the entire thing or have done it too. Daughter with an attitude- no way! LOL- my DD says she is a little angel every time she gets into trouble!

I could so relate to so many of these, but I am jealous about the potty training achievement. Well, maybe not, with the kitchen towel thing.

Zenmomma said...

#2 had me lol. Fun TT.

Yeah for potty training. At 6 my daughter no longer uses things other than tp to wipe, you just can't always count on her to wipe. And attitude we have in abundance, and I have long since given up channeling my mother, I have become my mother. Guess that's just the way life goes. Thanks for the fun 13!

Great list!!

At least #2 was a disposable item. Mine has used towels and facecloths.

Thea said...

LOL! We haven't experienced the kitchen towel predicament yet, but Emma will draw on anything and everything in the house...except coloring books.

We found 16 count crayons at Wal-mart!

Miss said...

I can relate to you on so many levels. Except it's not cookie dough, I'm all about Coffee ice cream lol.

Great list and Happy TT. I'm late, but it's still thursday afternoon in Hawaii lol.

You should have told me about your struggles to find a 16-count crayon box. No problems finding them here!

Crazy Working Mom said...

Hurray for everyone wearing big pants! :) Whoo hoo!!!

We have to remind our kids to flush. My husband says he wouldn't mind the not flushing if he just saw some toilet paper in the water!
