  • I laughed so hard my 5 yr old said to my husband ‘mommies noises are scaring me’ and my husband agreed. Then my 3 yr old peed on herself.

  • Loving your blog! Haven't laughed so hard in weeks! My phone rang while I was reading it and when I answered, my friend said, "Are you okay? You sound like you're crying!" and I had to tell her it was from reading this blog and laughing so hard. :-P

  • Marieka Freestar

    Also, regarding #46 – What's wrong with your current manger? Is baby Jesus sleeping in it?

  • I love this one. I can relate all too well. Blathering nonsense of the mind.
