Out of the mouth of babes…

We should have done a linky today.  Mer, Kellie, Gretchen, and Tiffani did this meme and I’m copying because other than finding all of my Italian pottery serving pieces on the floor of the boys’ bathroom filled with water and floating Lego pieces, and making inedible soup for supper (a meal only saved by Whimzie’s Crack Popcorn), nothing much happened around here yesterday to warrant an interesting post.

So I brought them in for questioning and here’s what they had to offer, unedited.  Since this is a game that Travis is challenged to participate in, I’m going to provide his answers in italics as the truth.  Tommy’s in blue and JJ’s in purple.

  1. Love it!!
    Thanks for the smile.

  2. You both rhyme with “ommy.” That one’s my favorite!

    Please scan the picture?!

  3. I hope you rescued your serving pieces before any damage was done – to the pottery. Cute answers! My favorite ones were “being dad’s boss” and “Adam Ant”! Is his Adam Ant different from the Adam Ant I’m thinking of? “Goody-two, goody-two, goody goody two shoes. . .”

    • I just realized it’s ATOM Ant, not Adam Ant *and edited my post*. I guess JJ was right – I don’t watch much TV – cartoons, anyway.

  4. I am loving this meme…I’m getting a really good glance at all my favorite bloggers.

    I’, hoping that your favorite foods are not Brussels sprouts. I have eaten a lot of veggies, but never brussel sprouts. That just doesn’t seem right.

  5. hahahaaaaa. cracked up at
    She’s still here isn’t she…

    and i’m in a starbux right now so i look like a lunatic. hahaha. thanks!

  6. Ok I needed a blog topic that wasn’t as depressing as what I want to blog about so I am going to copy this tomorrow. Love the “being Dad’s boss” comment.

  7. We both rhyme with “ommy”. How funny.

    You really must post the toilet pic. Or burn it so they don’t blackmail you with it.

    Are you really 5’11? I don’t remember that.

  8. You both rhyme with “ommy.” My fav.

    Love this. But very scared to know what my kids would have to say.

  9. Wow. The carpoolqueen is tall…

  10. Howdy! Well done. I’m sick jealous of your 5’11 height. Feel like I might be bipolar too–or just a bipolar mother. And I totally feel the distracted…wait a minute….what was i saying? Lastly, no half and half warrants the ugly cry. Just sayin’

  11. oh my! this is soo funny! I laughed so hard at the beginning before the Q&A even got underway b/c I soo identify w/ drowned Lego pieces in “serious” dishware…

    She’s still here?? Funniest response I’ve heard YET!!
