TST–I’m THAT Kindergarten parent

 

 

Quick update: I can’t really give much info on Mr. Daddy right now… We’re in a bit of a waiting game, but so thankful for the speedy and competent medical care he’s received.  In fact… I’m rather glad the man kinda sorta loves me – because he met the Ultimate Redneck Dream Nurse last week.  And while she was cute and petite and talked elk hunting with him… I think he appreciates that I didn’t stab him with any needles…

 

So in an effort to forget the scary stuff right now, it’s time to fire up that sleepy True Story Tuesday round again!  Think of it as a writing prompt to share that crazy family legend that everyone retells at Thanksgiving… that hilarious, amazing, outrageous, miraculous, and TRUE story!

A story you’ve already posted qualifies too!  Just copy the True Story Tuesday button on the sidebar into your post and link it back here… we’ll be around to share the comment love!

 

 

 

 

I’M THAT KINDERGARTEN PARENT

 

I have a sneaking suspicion that Itty Bit’s teacher has been enjoying his random goofiness.  I mean, who doesn’t?

silly

(double eyebrows alert)

 

But I also have a sneaking suspicion that tomorrow, she’ll have him all figured out.

See, tomorrow, it’s his turn to bring something for Show & Tell.  They hide their treasure in a bag and give three clues to their classmates.

And of course Itty Bit told me that it was his turn… approximately 30 seconds PAST bedtime and I scrambled to find something that was appropriately difficult for the kids to guess.

And since it’s hunting season and all (collective City Girl groan), I couldn’t help but remember this – the deer ninja:

hunter

 

See, Mr. Daddy is somewhat proud of that good lookin’ specimen up there (umm… the deer too).  And he has been known to bring his buddies inside to have a little chat about racks and points and assorted macho weaponry.

Except, that the last time he brought an elk-pee-covered buddy in to meet Bert (yes, as in O Boy O’BERT-O), his buddy stared in shocked silence.

I finally used my best Redneck Wife charm and introduced our newest family member that was proudly hung next to Bert.

 

 

Meet Rocky:

deer

 

He’s only 7” tall, so I think Mr. Daddy’s Tim Allen Manhood took a mighty beating as his buddy stood there with his mouth moving slowly without words.

Mr. Daddy himself couldn’t seem to form a complete sentence as he gaped alternately at Rocky and at his beaming wife.

 

What is…

Where did you…

How come it…

What on earth…

Who…

Why…?

 

 

My friends… those are all the things I fully expect poor Ms. Johnson to say to my Itty Bit tomorrow when he pulls out his lovely taxidermy pal.

But I suspect she’ll figure out that he comes by his easily-amused-ness quite naturally :)

(This makes me smile every.single.time I see it.  And for anyone who wants that bit of whimsy in their own Redneck home… Bree from Etsy’s AI Creatures has ones with MUSTACHES!  I’m sad I missed the mustache, but happy I caught the Heartsy deal!  Tell her I sent you!)

And now for your own stories!  (Believe me, we could really use them right now :)  Just link up below – we can’t wait to read your tales!

Tamar SB said...

Kmama said...

Too too funny!! I love that the first time he saw it was when he brought a friend in to look at the real one. So funny.

And I just saw the post about Mr. Daddy. I'm definitely praying.

Liz {Learning To Juggle} said...

That's HYSTERICAL!! I might be getting that for my *almost* redneck cousin-in-law to help him celebrate his soon to arrive son - what baby room would be complete without a felt buck on the wall?!

Still keeping Mr Daddy in my thoughts and prayers!!!

stephanie said...

how funny! and what a cute idea!!

BK said...

Ohmigosh the VEGAN TAXIDEMY on that Etsy site is hilarious! Hope everyone in your family gets healthy soon!

Eve said...

Oh NO! That's hilarious!! I'm just relieved he is bringing the little one to school... at the start of the story, I was picturing him trying to haul that giant head in through the classroom door!

scooterpie said...

Absolutely adorable! I want one with a moose-stache! (pun intended!) By the way, I LOVE that pic of my handsome, net-faced nephew! Miss you guys SOOOO stinkin much! Prayin for my brutha continuously-luloo!!

lifebythecreek said...

heh heh heh... I'm with Eve. I was trying to imagine what kind of sack would be large enough to cover Bert! I LOVE Rocky... now I wish I had a friend who loved to hunt and was expecting a baby. The. perfect. redneck. baby gift. EVER. :<) You'll have to tell us how it goes...
And know that I'm keeping you close in prayer.. xoxox.. love you, friends...

GunDiva said...

I'm late to the party; had a TST already composed in my mind and then today happened. So I shut my office door (not that it stopped anyone from coming in) and banged out today's entry.

Maybe if I get my own Bert and put him on my door people will leave me alone.

Love your sense of humor - wish y'all could have gone zombie hunting with us over the weekend :)

Julie said...

hehehe!! :D Thinking of you and your family. Hope Mr. Daddy is okay.

Tiffany said...

Umm... Would it weird you out if I told you that I tried to take testicles to show and tell once? Oh, and a jar of uranium ore my grandma had in the garage?

Haven't been able to type a coherient email with the cold meds, but know I'm praying for my favorite redneck.

Foursons said...

It's Tuesday already?! Ugh, I'm so sorry Rach. Things have been...busy.

Love that you bought this AND Itty Bit took it to school for show and tell. Classic family moment for y'all.

Mr. D better understand that there is NO option of not going to the next doctor appointment. And if I have to put my foot down I will. (Think that scared him?)

Stacy said...

LOL...so cute! I love that! Serves him right for bringing the pee smell in the house, right?? ;)

Saimi said...

First off Missy you have the most adorable son who makes me smile every time I see his picture. I love his expressions!

Second off, Love, love, love that Rocky, how hilarious is that!

Third, please know that your family is not far from my thoughts and Mr. Daddy is in my prayers!

Love ya girl!!

RaD said...

HA! I'd probably laugh out loud if one of the kindergarteners brought that to school. Course, we live in Cali so that would far fetched indeed.

Okay, I'm not linking up but I did post one more story a few days back about what my kids both said last week. Feel free to check it out.

Praying for your hubby...

K- floortime lite mama said...

OMG tooooo funny -- you make me perish laughing
You must post a postscript on how this did
Please give some details on Mr Daddy
worried for him and you :-(
you guys have been through so much lately and you deserve only the best

Grumpy Grateful Mom said...

Haha! Love it! I think I need to get one of those for my f-i-l. And great picture of your son. :)

Lexie Loo, Little Lily, and Dylan Too! said...

That is so funny!
I hope Mr. Daddy feels better soon!

He & Me + 3 said...

Too funny. It will definitely bring a smile to the teachers face. Very creative show and tell. Praying for your family.

Michelle Pixie said...

Prayers are coming your way!

Now I must go see about my very own Rocky with a mustache! Hee Hee

Anonymous said...

Never know WHAT this family will take for show & tell - one time Rachel actually took her Grandma to show & tell - ahhh the stories!

LaVonne @ Long Wait said...

I like the story of the cute nurse. Too funny! Thanks for sharing. Love that ninja hunter photo too.

Blessings!

Chic Homeschool Mama said...

That is FUNNY- I can't wait to hear the update on this story!

A Musing Mother said...

Let's all have a moment of grateful silence that Itty Bit didn't mention he needed all that fun stuff as he was walking to the bus stop/car on his way to school.

You do know Jeff Foxworthy, yes?

MarsupialMama said...

OMG I WANT ONE!!!!! It might just have to be an early xmas present for myself. I love buying from Etsy!

MarsupialMama said...

I thought you made them, I just added her onto my favorites in Esty... That was such a cute and funny story!! Thanks for the Etsy store tip too!

Jess said...

Not bad for a last minute show-and-tell choice. Love it!

Praying for your family!

Dumb Mom said...

We never remember show and tell until the last minute and then The Dudes usually wind up with some lame photo of something fun. They always want to take a gun or a sword or a dagger or a bow to school, but pretend weapons are not allowed. So it's a picture. Best thing I can come up with 10 minutes before the bus comes!
