A Pullup Held Hostage....


Are there any flowers? Are there any flowers? Flowers mean it hasn't been pee'ed. Dang! No Flowers!

Note to self: Buy new bathrobe tie. Burn the old one!

My bathrobe tie is the best toy in the house. My girls tie toys to it and hang them from the stairs--apparantly Elmo is suicidal on a regular basis. They also use it Tarzan style to swing down the stairs--I am just waiting for a broken limb. They use it for many, many adventures. My neighbors are wishing I would use it properly because they are tired of the peep show.

Do your kids have any odd "toys"?

Isn't that typical of kids? Buy them a fancy gift and they have more fun with the box that it came in?

I am, however, concerned about Elmo. Maybe you should get him in counseling? I saw a monster on IPTV when I was in Boise a couple of weeks ago. He was on Sesame Street too and looked like the old, homeless version of Elmo. Maybe you can avert disaster now?

:oD

I used to steal the green arm covers from Mom's old couch to wear on my head! In my mind, they were magnificent wigs that, when put on my head, transformed me into a beautiful girl; I was the world's youngest drag queen!

One day, when I thought no one was around, I put on my "wig" and began admiring my reflection in the microwave.

"No one knows, but I'm really a girl", I said in falsetto and batted my eyes.

"Oh really?!" came a voice from behind.

I spun around and there was Frogluvr, who had witnessed my entire game! My cheeks flushed red and I knew the gig was up!

I abandoned my secret life as a drag queen after that. It's probably for the best... I'm not really big on shaving my pits and I don't think my ankles would have handed the stilletos.

Corrected for spelling: "handled" the "stilettos".

It's amazing how much the diaper industry has advanced in the last few years!

I think diaper engineers are on the right track, but perhaps instead of making the flowers disappear they should focus their efforts on making the pee go away. What do you think?

Close your blinds! My 15 year old likes to play with foil. Is that odd enough for you? He likes to make balls for the cat and helmets and swords for himself. One of these days he is going to grow up...

I, too, am worried about Elmo. Maybe I can get him in a 10 step program? What do you think? :D

Willy, I did the same thing. I used those covers as hair too....what an odd thing to do! I wonder if that annoyed the heck out of mom. I know every time my girls rip the cushions off the couch, I begin to hyperventilate. Only because they have done it a thousand times.......or maybe it is more....I am beginning to hyperventilate just thinking about it!

... as long as the 10 step program isn't located 9 steps from the edge of a very tall building!

That is funny--I would have to say the same thing. My kids favorite toys are their robe ties. They too hang stuffed animals from the stairs. One robe tie is even hanging from our swingset outside. Kind of dangerous, I know, but it entertains them.
