Some Linky Love

I don’t have much to say today.  Well, okay that’s not true…I have TONS to say, but I’m not really sure that any of you would really be interested in hearing me talk about my dirty kitchen, the organic macaroni and cheese I fed my kids today that tasted like smelly gym socks or my indignant objection to this recently announced new policy.

Nope – I really don’t have a lot to say today.  So instead, I’ll let you read a few of the posts that have made me laugh out loud in recent days.  I gotta tell ya – there are some funny, talented people out there.  One of them is BooMama.  Just read this post and you’ll see what I mean. 

Then there’s Shannon from Rocks in My Dryer.  This post about her daughter’s imaginery friend cracked me up, especially given the fact that I’ve had to scold Sloan’s transient imaginary pal, Cody, on occasion for his blatent disregard for the rules of our home.

This is an older post by Dana, but every time I think about it, I giggle again.

Those are but a few of the things that have made me laugh in recent days.  And what am I laughing about right now, you ask?  Wait, what?  You actually didn’t ask anything?  Oh…well, do you want to know what’s making me laugh anyway?  Oh good!

Sloan has a little buddy over this afternoon.  “C” got off the bus with him and they’ve been having a good old time acting like macho little men, high fiving, calling each other dude and playing war.  Right now, they’re on the swingset and since it’s a gorgeous day, I’ve got the windows open and I can hear them playing.  A few snippets:

“Dude! You are, like, so awesome at swinging.”

“I know, dude.”

“Dude, let’s play pirate – I’ll be the bad guy.”

“Okay! I’m the scallywag.”

“What’s a scallywag?”

“I dunno. It’s like a dirty, piratey kind of dude.”

“Huh. Dude!”

So I’m off to put in the oh-so-macho Star Wars whilst the scallywags nosh on brownies and I attempt to figure out why on earth my house smells like cigarette smoke – I’m attributing it to the open windows, but you know – it’s still a little perplexing.

Happy Weekend!


  1. Do “C”‘s parents smoke? Maybe he’s got the smell on his clothes.

    What is UP with that word “dude”? So many perfectly good English words and that one gets way overused.

  2. Don’t they smoke across the street? anyway. It is funny to see how the kids act differently with each of their friends. I didn’t hear a single ‘dude’ yesterday:) Brooke enjoyed having Sloan over, me too!

  3. Hey Kel, Amy and I here. We think that you won’t have to worry about that dumb new law. Nobody’s actually going to enforce it. Obama is making us broke. As if they have money to hire someone whose job it is to come to garage sales and fine you for your lead based paint junk. 😀

    We love you. We think you’re funny. We are drinking tea and having girl time so-we thought of you. 😀

    Happy Day!
    Tiff (and Amy)
