Potluck without a point

Without a point?

Did Potlucks ever have a point?

I guess I missed that.

And now for a little story entitled (w/picture):
Does Everything have to be Educational?

If you have ever been to the Fort Worth Zoo you may have stopped at the Play Barn. If you have stopped at the play barn then you probably have a picture similar to this on your camera:

This is from the zoo’s “manure making” exhibit. I am not sure that the kids learn much of anything, but the moms learn to scramble quickly for their cameras to snap a shot of their child “elbow deep in learning”.

And proving my theory that everything is better with a button:

You know you want it…

So these random phrases had eager readers Nirvana bound this week:
1. I would rather wet my pants.
2. It is a sunny day and I feel brand new.
3. alien fruit boobs
4. my feet stink

What is up with Holly’s coccyx?

Doing good.
How many weeks is she going to include the coccyx segment (hehe) without any actual update?

Let’s find out who is Peep of the Week!

One of the best peep comments to date in response to Ryan’s 8th birthday post:

Happy Birthday Ryan. Now if you let Mommy and Daddy take an afternoon nap, they might dream you a little sister.

Yep, that is from Weaselmomma. Again. I may have to add an additional column to the blog to keep her permanently ensconced as Peep of the Week.

What is in Holly’s fruit bowl?

You know all that crap that I had in the fruit bowl last week? Well it is still there minus two bananas and one potato.

May your turning produce lots of manure…

    I knew there was somwthing different about you.. Alien boobs ah is that what it is..

  2. Manic Mommy says:

    The notion that kids don’t understand poop is just a little ridiculous. It’s been the ongoing favorite joke since they could speak.

    Yeah, I’d totally have taken the picture.

  3. WeaselMomma says:

    CHA-Ching winner and still reigning Champion!!!!!!
    Oh and BTW, I so want to know how to change the code n the manure button so it read WeaselMomma instead cow. I need that button!

  4. Valarie Lea says:

    Oh the depths we go to teach our children… 🙂

  5. Angie Ledbetter says:

    With three teens, a Cajun hubby and a new puppy in the house, I don’t even need a manure-producing button! (Hip waders, however, would be nice.)

  6. LOVE the button…

    and really, it’s better that your bananas are gone. They don’t keep well…

  7. the mama bird diaries says:

    What’s going on in that picture? Is her hand up the fake horse’s tush?

  8. Momo Fali says:

    I once had to take a loan application from a bull semen collector. He literally had to stick his hands places that no human should ever have to stick their hands.

  9. Jennifer H says:

    Oh honey. At my house, it was all those afternoon naps that brought tons of (child-generated) manure into my life.

    Live it, learn it.

  10. Domestic Goddess (In Training) says:

    So she’s basically elbow deep in…. education?

  11. The Lucky Mrs. T says:

    Must have been the weekend for manure. We were in it deep at our place. My girl took photos. Tune in tomorrow for the full story!

  12. Elaine A. says:

    Ah yes, the play barn and the potential for manure aqusition. I know it well. But I do not have a picture like that. Next time….

  13. Jenni Jiggety says:

    All we have is fake cows with rubber udders to milk!

  14. Thats an icky button – it makes me want to barf.

  15. the planet of janet says:

    i might need a whole extra sidebar just for your buttons.
