Lately, I’ve been admiring the Weekly Roundups some of my fellow bloggers have been posting and I want to try it too!
But here’s my spin: I’d like to share a few funny exchanges I had with my weird kids this week, then mention some reactions the week’s topics:
Our Ridiculous Dog
Brontë (looking very serious): Mommy, I need to talk to you about something.
Me (sitting down): What is it?
Brontë (deeply sighing, then taking my hand): Well, Douglas chewed up the cushions, ate our toys, barks at the kitties, and keeps knocking us over when we play outside…
Me: I know. He’s a very frustrating dog.
Brontë: And I think we should change his name from ‘Douglas’ to ‘Butthole.’
Kids Who Won’t Nap
Brontë: So are we gonna go on a walk and then swim?
Me: That depends on you. We’ll have time if you guys take a nap when we get home. If I keep having to go in there because you’re playing, then we’ll probably run out of time.
Brontë: We’ll be good and take a nap but first, I want to make a bunch of noise and have you run in and say, “SHUT IT DOWN, BABIES!” Then we’ll be quiet, okay?
Me: That works.
Brontë (upon seeing her stuffed lemur in my room): What are you DOING here??
Me: He’s been hanging out here lately.
Brontë: Why? To pet Violet the kitty?
Me: Yeah. Plus he said your room smells like farts.
Brontë: WHAT!? Okay, that’s fair. Can you come open my window?
- Got props on Twitter this week for being the mommy blogger who actually worked the phrase “Angry Rabbit Perverts” into an article.
- Turns out, most parents are still firmly in the pro-sharing camp. I think that’s probably wise.
- According to my kids, Bubbles and Beebots remains painfully short on bunny captions.
Have a great weekend, everyone! 🙂
