Because life is just so wonky right now… all I have is crazy snippets of the wackiest stuff.

Like the fact that I got this little lovely in the mail yesterday:


Whew!  I’m so glad they let me know A DOCUMENT IS ENCLOSED!  I would have hated to get all excited opening it to find nothing.

And even better?  It’s a REMINDER that goshdarnit, they’ve sent me a sales pitch once, now they’re reminding me that I haven’t bought their super-duper credit monitoring service.

But hey, I got a DOCUMENT, so I’m gold :)




A “document” that I really, really loved?  The birthday card I picked out for my mom :)



Adding to the hilarity is that this “short” thing is three generations old:


Grandma on the left, friend Sally in pink, my mom, and yours truly.  All fun size.




Plus we celebrated May-May’s birthday:



and Father’s/Grandpa’s Day:



Let it be known that my own father has grievously wounded me by declaring such nonsense as to forbid any photo of him to be found on my blog (collective gasp!)

So Dad, here’s what you’ve reduced me to.  Posting photos of your gift.

Yeah, it’s a sad day.






Random fact:

I turned around to check on Itty Bit in the car and hollered OHMYGOSH!


Random fact:

If you yell “OHMYGOSH” at a half-asleep kid, he’ll freak out and yell back



Random fact:

The Blue Measles – guaranteed to appear whenever you have a photo shoot planned.


Highly contagious.

Cure = Mom’s spit.  Highly painful – if the wailing is any indicator.




See it?



What was even funnier, was when the lady getting out of her car saw it!

Who on earth leaves a guard chihuahua on TOP of their car in the bank parking lot?




And who on earth takes pictures of random cars while they’re stuck in the drive up line?

(A diehard blogger, that’s who :)




As if I weren’t accident prone enough?

Our snow cone maker kinda sorta exploded.

And in cleaning up the mess, I asked Itty Bit to please throw me the dishtowel.

I forgot that he’s been practicing lately…


He launched this crazy pitch with the towel… which hit me square in the face and wrapped around my head.

I was mummified except for one eye.

He looked at me with a look of appropriate shock and said reverently,






Oh, and Boing?

Itty Bit’s new catchall answer for any and everything.


Honey, do you want some string cheese?



Honey, it’s time for a bath.



Honey, where did you put your shoes?



Honey, if you say BOING one more time…

Kmama said...

May May is so stinkin' cute (as is Itty Bit).

Brandi said...

You. Are. NUTS!!!!! LOVE IT! Y'all adopt me? I want to be part of your big crazy fam! Hey, our kids had the funny tooth, right? Oh, and I'm short too! That's gotta count for something!

Even if I took my camera with me, I'd never find a dog on top of a car. Only you, Rach. Only you. LOL!!

Oh, and BOING!!!!!

sara said...

oh my word, this started my day out right today...I laughed through the whole thing. You crack me up!!!

Love the picture of the generations....so cute!!!

Boing! ....you know we have to do that!

Liz {Learning To Juggle} said...

My poor kids....because you know this weekend, as they start to doze in the car I will be turning around and yelling "oh my gosh" just to see what happens...and its all your fault :)

AND I LOVE that birthday card (I'm fun-sized too and quite proud of it!!)

Julie said...

Boing! Oh gosh!! lol!

(I've moved...)

Shana Putnam said...

HAHA, boing...love it. A dog on top of a car? Really? Insane. Love the fun size pic lol. Oh yeah, speaking of cards, your Easter card is still on my counter...yeah, I am good like that. Happy birthdya to May May and happy Father's/Grandfather's day to Mr. Daddy. Why would someone buy Baconnaise?

Angie Vik said...

My husband and I ask each other every night, "What made you laugh today?" I'll be able to tell him that your posts make me laugh. Thanks for brightening my day.

Tamar SB said...

You are my weekly laughing therapy - seriously! Boing, so adorable!! And I totally spotted the double brows, love it!

Susan said...

Thank you for recognizing "fun size" people. We need the nod once in a while. Itty Bit is sooooo entertaining! And the way you write captures it all perfectly. Boing!

Just Add Walter said...

haha love that card -- so cute... my whole family picks on me for being short... especially since my hubs is 6'4"!

NaomiG said...

All I can think of to say is BOING. I'm going to do that to my kids all day long. BOING!

Lexie Loo, Lily, Liam & Dylan Too said...

This post had me laughing! Love the blue measles and the guard chihuahua on top of the car!

HeatherOz said...

YUMMMMMMMMMMM. The baconnaise actually sounds pretty good. LOVE the shorties shot!

Presley family said...

Oh I so needed this!!! Too funny! Love it... Love you!!!!

Kelly said...

Gosh he looks so grown up in those glasses!

Baconnaise? really?? sounds interesting...

Oh I almost forgot:

Tina said...

What a fun post! I love that you are fun size. And I think the dog on the car is awesome. How funny, I wish I had been the one to see that!! :)

Anonymous said...

I needed that laugh :) Itty Bit is just ADORABLE

stephanie said...

I don't think he could be any cuter! And baconniase? Oh my!

Beth Zimmerman said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE you, Rachel! You made me laugh today with a memory of Josiah, in the back seat, screaming "don't you dare" with a wild look of panic in his eyes as I spit upon a ball of kleenex to "wash" his dirty face! Hilarious!

Beth Zimmerman said...

Oh ... and just wait til you hear "Boing" 3 times in repetition as you run towards the child. It takes on brand new meaning!

RaD said...

Hey! Mom of M&M's took my response! :)

Uh, dog on the roof? I'd have taken a picture of that too for sure!

So where did he get the idea to answer everything with BOING?

Saimi said...

Can I just say it for the one thousandest time on how much you and your mom look alike and not only that but you guys could be sisters instead??

There I said it for the one thousand and one times!

Do you suppose Boing, means boring??
Regardless, that Itty Bitty is so dang cute...Wait did I just say that because I KNOW I've said that before to.

I think I'm beginning to repeat myself!

Bethany said...

I bow to your bloginess.

It takes a special blogger to make such a hilarious post out of nothing. How on earth do you do it?

Love that picture of Itty bit. And Boing! You've got your hands full, Mama.

Nati @ I will praise Him said...

That was hilarious.
Thank you so much for your comment, btw!!!!!

Lourie said...

Hahahaha! That is a funny post! Boing! So using that one on my teen. hahaha

Emmy said...

Okay this post was awesome! Is the baconayse good? It looks good.. I think I might have to try and find some now.
It was good the bank let you know a document was enclosed- I mean at least that way you knew it wasn't a bomb or something like that :)
