Laughter...I've got that covered!

Love that song...

So, here are a few funny things to get you to Friday..

First of all, I read fluff. I mix in some good old fashioned fluff with the good stuff. :) Ok, but you knew that. I'm reading Cinderella Rules. Very funny. Fluff galore. Here's Cinderella Rule #4:
Never underestimate the power of fashion as a business tool. Unfair as it may seem, a well-tailred skirt matched with the right pair of heels often influences people more than the corporate presentation you spent weeks slaving over. Embrace that reality ...and accessorize ruthlessly.

If that doesn't crack you up..I have another.
Last night Sam and ava were in bed. I just tucked them in and walked downstairs as I heard this little exchange:

"Hey Ava, I dropped a plate today. It was an accident, though. Hey Guess what Mommy said," asked Sammy?

"Go to your room," Ava laughed.

"No, she said Shit! It was like Ooooooh Shit! Shit Shit Shit. (yes from my 5 year old,)"He then just cracked up!

"Shit," she spell, "S....H....I....T, SHIT."

"Good we can say and spell shit," my sweet sammy proudly announced.

PS..I only said it once!

"Say it and spell it"...that's great!!

I had one of those moments last week with my 3 yr old son. I (sitting in recliner with toy poodle on lap) was trying to get gum out of the dogs hair.(that 3 yr old had EVERYTHING to do with) Anyway, I am trying to seperate the hair that has gum all in it with the hair that is clean. So that I could cut it...really didn't want to cut anymore than I had to. Ya know. Well anyway, the dog was going nuts, couldn't possibly sit still for one darn moment. So after about 5 minutes I start to get agitated. So I tell the dog, "If you quit being a bitch for one damn minute I'll be done."

Fast forward to the next morning...

My daughter is getting ready for school. I am talking to my Mother-InLaw who made a surprise visit at 7:30 in the morning!!! I am brushing my daughter's hair, and she of course is not cooperating. When my son pops out with "Sissy, If you would stop being a bitch for one damn minute, Mommy would be done!" I was COMPLETELY mordified!!! ...and with Nana there...Thanks Son! I seriously thought my Mother-InLaw was going to drop dead right in my dining room...or maybe I was hoping that I would!!

Shit that's funny! Out of the mouths of babes.

Reminds me of when my daughter started talking about something and I couldn't understand what she was saying. She was talking about her pagina...I had no idea about the context - I thought she was talking about one of her toys and it's name was Pagina and I wondered how did she decide to name it that. But finally I figured it out when she said something about her sibling saying that she wasn't supposed to play with her Pagina that I realized what she was referring to. Replace P with V.

CRAP, C... R... A... P... CRAP. :)

Thanks EVERYONE for the much needed laughs this am. I'm sure I should be able to share a good story but I can't think of one today. Ah well. There are plenty of good ones already!

Why I can't get the "See and Say" visualization out of my head... that'd be an ugly one. :)
