Funny, Funny!

Sometimes being a mom is really funny.

Like when you go to the thrift store with one of your "besties" to peruse used books in insanely good condition and at insanely good prices, and you notice your son is trying to crawl into a dressing room that is muy ocupado.

That's funny. 

Then there's the time you're "crafting" at a friend's house while the four children play.  Suddenly, two of the four are buck-naked and running through the house and the bathroom smells strongly and peculiarly of hand soap and NO ONE under three feet tall is talking about what really happened upstairs while "the moms" were into the mod podge.  The "newly potty-trained" third kid emerges from the bathroom (after needing to "tinkle") and forgets to put his bottoms back on, so now HE is running around partially naked and your mom friend keeps saying insanely hilarious things like, "Put on your pants!  Cover up Mr. Bo Jangles!"

See?  That's funny too.

Or how about when you take a trip to the craft store and your kids start acting like monkeys in the cart.  Your toddler keeps yelling, "Gee oww!  Gee oww!," because he really just wants to "get out" of the cart and run around.  When you finally succumb to his pleadings you wish you hadn't because NOW he's chasing the little old man in the Rascal Scooter.  The kid is undoubtedly obsessed with ANYTHING with wheels, and the little old man seems slightly ticked.  So back into the cart he goes, only to pitch a colossal fit that involves his big head butting into your preschooler's big head.  Now SHE'S crying and you can't help but think about how ridiculously small the stinkin' craft store carts are.  All you can say is, "Geez!  What IS with you guys and the craft store?!  I can't bring you in here.  It makes you weird."  That's when you hear the woman in the next aisle start giggling, because she totally heard your rant.  After waiting in the checkout line, you make yourself feel better by purchasing TWO candy bars.  (Which you will eat at bedtime, while the kids are sleeping.)

Sometimes being a mom is really funny.



It's a darn good thing I've got a sense of humor!

  5. Seriously!! What IS it with craft stores??? I take my kids into Michaels and they turn into their evil villain alter egos. Yikes.

    And can I just ask... MR. BO JANGLES!!!??? Hahahaha!!!!!! That's hilarious!!! My 7-yr-old refers to his...area...as "my tenders", and I was totally grossed out until my husband clued me in on everything else he could be calling it. So tenders it is.
