What You Said

Because sometimes the comments are better than the post itself. Some highlights from this past week:

In reply to It's Got the HOA up in the Proverbial Arms:

Eat Play Love said: "Can we get the memo to the Prince that he can land his helicopter in my garden whenever he wishes."

In reply to Kinda Looking Forward to Menopause...

Laughingatchaos said: "After the last four hours of WTabsoluteF, I think I could out-roar Marge. I can't take it anymore, and it's just a damned good thing the boys stayed in bed this evening or my head may have blown clean off. And, for an amazing change of pace, neither they nor my husband were the reason for this anger. Mark the date."

And Stu, who I don't give nearly enough credit too because his comments are laugh out loud funny: "Snorting Ajax huh? You know that is a gateway drug to the harder stuff. Soon you'll be shooting up Downy and stuffing your bra with dryer sheets."

In reply to: Friday's Advice Column

Mommytime quipped: "I think your hair and my hair have been sneaking out at night and partying too hard, and THAT's why they look all tired and worn out. Because my hair looks just like your right now. I'm betting total BFFs with the Bartles and James Strawberry Wine Coolers..." [Editor's note: And probably smoking some Cloves].

In reply to:

Calicobebop wants to know: "And toys in the bank? What kind of utopia do you live in?"

Where I live was designed for families. I think it might be a requirement that one actually BE a parent to even live here. And just about every establishment is kid friendly which is awesome for daily life but murder when trying to find a nice quiet place to spend a few moments with adults only.

While I was busy writing this entry, the following took place in Girl-Child's room:



Sigh.

Blame it on Spongebob...he looks guilty and tired.

Karen said...

I'm scared both my daughter's rooms look like that about now. Lucky for them I am too tired to care at the moment.

MommyTime said...

Oh, I sympathize. That happened in every room of my house earlier this week...I'd be washing dishes, and his- and her-icane (credit to Foolery for that excellent moniker) would destroy the family room; I'd tackle family room, and they'd race off to dining room, and so on.

On an unrelated note: I LOVE your comment on the comments post (and not just because you put up my big hair party comment). I've been admiring the idea for DAYS -- ever since I first found you. It should have a name and a button that goes back to you, so we can all borrow the idea and give credit where it's deserved.

I know, like you have time to make snappy little href buttons when THAT room in happening in your house. Me either. But it is a nice idea. :)

EatPlayLove said...

I had to chuckle at that one! I forgot about your new weekly memorable comments... (but it's true)
Smiles.. denise

FYI, Stu actually squealed that he got a shout-out from you. Thanks for that; he's not unbearable enough already. ;)

Your girl's room? We call that tornado in the Barbie trailerpark. Good luck with FEMA.

serial commenter said...

I don't know if it was a squeal per se...

Glad my abilities as a smart ass have paid off somewhere in life other than my staff meetings.

I know I feel a whole lot better about the state of my girls' room. For a split second, I thought that room was in my house! Other than our hard wood floors, it looks pretty much the same.

womaninawindow said...

Funny, it still looks clean to me. What in the hell does that say about me and my house, eh?

Cheri said...

Laura's room, with it's Polly "ski slopes" (read: white towels over pillows) and "ice skating rink" (read: dry-erase board) and various vehicles, furnitures, and tons of rubber clothes, makes hers the messier room by far. We win. I'll try and post a photo later.

LaskiGal said...

What? What's wrong with it? Looks fine to me.

Chaos=cool and creative :)

Jennifer H said...

Looks like Not Me left my house for an hour and flew to yours. Not Me is responsible for every single mess (and gastric episode) in our house.

Funny comments!

katydidnot said...

your girl child and my girl child? maybe separated at birth. bah.

laughingatchaos said...

Oh, all of you think YOU have the worst kids' room? I beg to differ! Before I tear into it tomorrow with a shovel and a match, I shall photograph A's room...and you will all cower in fear. ; )
And I agree with Michelle...SpongeBob looks like he went on a three day bender.

Nap Warden said...

Oh man do I know that scene...If I turn away for one moment to blog, it usually means The Little Man is tearing something apart...

debawriter said...

VERY familiar looking room, right down to the Candy Land detritus and Aquadoodle pens.

And! Great comments from commenters! (Myself excluded)

Colleen said...

heh! anytime a room in our house looks like that, I refuse to touch it until close to naptime/bedtime...no point in helping Gavin put it away (or harrass him) until i know he'll not pull it back out 3 seconds later. Justin, on the other hand, will lose his effing mind and make Gavin clean up every.stinkin.toy.every.hour. gah!

JCK said...

Quite a lot of pink, but pink is a lovely color - even in chaos perpetrated by small girls.

Karen said...

Commenters rawk. Seriously, I mostly post new things just to hear what others have to say.

HRH said...

That was seriously funny.
