apparently i stink. it's one of those not-often-spoken-of side effects of pregnancy.

Has anybody else noticed how the new supercool thing to do on effbook is to pass memes around like STDs in the 70's? I was going to just post the answers to this little fella on the effbook, but my self-deprecating self just couldn't resist the potty humour.

And also, certain people have been phoning my neighbors to check on me, because I'm not as perky as usual. I appreciate the concern, really and truly I do. I'm sorry I'm not superperky...I swear I'll do better soon, like in 4-6 weeks or so, when I can resume sleeping on my stomach and also turn over in the night without throwing off all my covers, removing the pillow from between my knees, sitting up, standing up, rearranging my various sundry body props, sitting back down, replacing the knee pillow, lying down, sitting back up to adjust the belly pillow, lying down, flipping the head pillow over to the side with no drool cold side, listening to the Mister's heavy breathing CPAP machine until my brain decides to go back to sleep. It's at least a 20 minute process about once an hour. I'm researching black market sleep aids. I'm researching nothing, actually. Nothing at all. No research here.

Instead of research, I have asked Miss O and Wee Man twenty-some questions about myself. Wee Man, in his inimitable way, answered the questions thoughtfully, but Miss O was in a sassy mood, so there's quite a bit of exaggeration going on here. And by quite a bit? I mean all mentions of farts and pot holders. Because seriously, people, there is no way on God's green earth that my brand is worse than The Mister's brand.

1. What is something mom always says to you?
Miss O: Ummm....I don't know. What do you? No, that's not what I wanted you to write. (giggles) Next question.
Wee Man: Get your pull-up and jammies on and get in bed and read books.

2. What makes mom happy?
Miss O: When I listen.
Wee Man: Getting in the car and you can buckle me and then you drive.

3. What makes mom sad?
Miss O: When I don't listen. And when I steal cookies. And when I steal her farts. And when I steal...when HB steals her earrings.
Wee Man: Telling things bad.

4. How does your mom make you laugh?
Miss O: Sometimes when you fart. And when she makes silly stuff to eat.
Wee Man: Telling things funny. (Crazy laughter) I just waughed.

Wee Man: A mean girl. A mean, evil mom.

17. What do you and your mom do together?
Miss O: Cuddle. And make pot holders.

  1. wow - you go to the post office a lot. I plan to do this soon on my blog. Right after I break up with fbook.

  2. Hey! I love cake as well!

    And Wee Man's answers are cracking me up!!

    I wanted to drop by to say thank you for your support in my Super Heavy Duty Post. I appreciate it greatly.

  3. I can't wait to find out what those two have to say about me!

  4. You had me laughing on the inside just because if I laughed the way I wanted to while I read this I would have been comited to a mental institution.

  5. Hilarious! Best way to start a Sunday morning? Read the dayton time! :)

  6. That was ADORABLE. I want you to know I have every single intention in the world of stealing this idea from you. I'll give you credit back so you won't, you know, sue me or something. :)

  7. LOL. (over and over, again).

  8. your kids are the best! It was great to see you today, I wish we could have grabbed a cup of coffee and chatted for hours, but such is life huh! You look great all big and preggers.

  9. that was so funny - I'm gonna ask my kids those - too funny.

  10. I love these. Well and truly. Especially the "We're growing" one. Snort.

  11. I'm really impressed! I would have probably had a lot of answers related to yelling and saying bad things. Exaggerations all, of course.


talk to me, people. because you know i get all giddy when you do.
