Friday Fragments

Welcome, to another addition of Friday Fragments...hosted by the fabulous Mrs. 4444 @ Half-Past Kissin' Time.

*Smurfette: "mommy, can boys have babies?"
Me: "No, honey, boys can't have babies."
Smurfette: "I know, mommy, I was only testing you."
*Dear baby girl, please stop testing me. I'm not sure how much longer I'll be able to continue passing your tests. When the whole "how do mommy's get pregnant?" question pops up? I'm totally cheating off Great Grandma's test and telling you "they swallow water melon seeds".

*Me: *singing to some tunes while cleaning my house*
Dreamy: MOM! PLEASE! 1st I had to go for an MRI this morning and now THIS??!! REALLY??!! How much can a kid take??!! *snicker*

*"Tiny long saggy boobies" and "little boobies nipples pictures" ...these are 2 recent google searches that landed someone to my blog. Seriously.

And so is this....word for word...copied and pasted....
"So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad And I’m still trying to figure out how that could be." ...I hope she wasn't looking at my blog for the answer!

*Had a fantastic morning with my kids at their school for "pancakes with parents". Only, they didn't want to sit with me. I tried to explain to them the meaning of "with parents"....but their buddies are more fun to sit with. Gonna have to work on that. I think I embarrassed them when I started belting out Josh Groban tunes. *no, of course I didn't.....YET!* =)

*I haven't even started Christmas shopping. There once was a time when I would have been completely finished by the end of October. *try not to gag*. I would get it all done in one long girls weekend shopping excursion. Now it's just a chore. I'll probably be one of those people at the store at midnight on Christmas Eve. I'm dreading it this year. I don't know why. I'm thinking about doing all my shopping on line this year. But then I can't bargain hunt for the sales. So....any suggestions? I like does anyone know of any great bargain shopping sites?

*Dreamy update - MRI was done Monday. Couldn't get in to see the doc for a follow up appointment to discuss the result of the test until NEXT Friday! ACK! But the good news is....he thinks it's getting better. He actually participated in gym yesterday and did a little running and jumping and woke up extremely sore just from that little bit of activity. He has lost all muscle tone in these 4 months of slothful living. And I'm praying this won't lead to yet another injury when he returns to gymnastics.

*We had Hefty's conferences last night and I'm enormously proud of him. Every one of his teachers had nothing but wonderful things to say about him. My personal favorites..."he's very hard working" and "he's very polite". Makes the recently discovered "eye rolling" seem a little less infuriating. =)

*I watched Hitch last night for the 374th time. And I laughed just as hard this time as I did the 1st time. Love that movie.

"Right. Well, see, I'm more of a literal kind of guy. So when I do this...
*twists his arm and slams him on the table* This is more like me saying that
I will literally break your shit off if you ever touch me again. mkay punkin?"
I really want to be able to use that line on someone in real life. Wouldn't that be "bad ass"?

*I steam cleaned all my carpets yesterday. The great room and 3 bedrooms. 2 hours after they dried? My dog shit on it. Why. do. I. bother?

I'm not answering any sex or where do babies come from questions. Ever. Because I'm very afraid I will die when the time comes. In fact, my son thinks the clinical name for his, um, "boy part" is "business". The conversation went something like this,

"What's THAT Mommy?" (points downward)

"That's your business, child." (Husband mutters and shakes head)

"Oh, my business! My business is FUNNY!" (Make mental note to tell this story at a time when it will be at the pinnacle of embarrassment for him.)

If my son goes to his grave calling it his business? I'm perfectly OK with that.

I like to watch Anchor Man twelve million times. I try to find a reason to say, "Sixty per cent of the time, it works EVERY time" at least once a week.

I thought I had a witty and insightful comment, but-nope, it's gone. :)

Melisa with one S said...

Isn't that blocking feature on FB FABULOUS??? I have blocked a few folks myself. :)

P.S. I have never seen "Hitch". Not once. :)
(but might someday!)

April said...

I like the "hide" feature on FB, too, for the people I don't want to de-friend, but just don't need to see their updates!
Xmas shopping will be very, very limited this year. And anyone who doesn't like it can get over it.

Eve said...

Oh my goodness... your little girl is too adorably funny!!! "just testing you"! Hahaha :)

I've become a last minute shopper... by choice. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Christmas, but I get annoyed with the shopping part. I like to give gifts, but there are a few people on my yearly list who are so critical (no matter how much I try to find something they will love) that they've managed to take the fun out of the search.

Oh well.

Tracey - Just Another Mommy Blog said...

Quite the update! I think I saw Hitch once... The one with Will Smith as a dating coach, right?

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

HA! Smurfette was only testing it!! :)

And Dreamy commenting about your singing...priceless! :)

What is it about being at school that kids don't want to be seen with their parents? It must be in ingrained thing, because even in first grade PN has shown that avoidance technique to hubby when he had to drop her off last week when we overslept and missed the bus. I'm afraid that when we have the 'lunch with parents' day next month she's going to want to sit with her friends and leave us high and dry... ;)

Good to know you can totally block someone on FB...I might need that in the future! ;)

Happy FF! :)

Yes, you would be a bad ass in real life if you used the line from Hitch, but I hope you never have cause to

Oh I say do your shopping online. Don't a lot of online retailers do Black Friday sales too?

Dang animals always have to ruin our best efforts.

I didn't know you could block people of FB, how about MySpace?
