The hands-down winner in the category of “Parenting Tip of The Week,” from When Crazy Meets Exhaustion:
Do I Have a Booger in My Nose? Asking this question works wonders when I need my kids to: look up while I rinse their hair (shampoo + little eyes = HUGE fiasco); look into the camera; lift their chin so I can wipe under it; and it’s even been known to squash sibling squabbles. They forget they’re mad at each other and just think I’m an idiot who can’t blow my nose. Whatever works.
The full post, which is a collection of “a list of (mostly helpful) parenting tips. Here’s hoping some of them work so you don’t think I’m a complete moron,” is here.
In keeping with the quote above, the winner in best picture trolling around on my social media feed:
As the creator of original content, I’m rather anal about giving credit where credit is due, but the best I can do in terms of tracking this back to its source is the Facebook page of one Trampus Egerton. Thanks!
And, let’s wrap up with a Quote of the Day from my House:
Cinder: Mom! Flora is being bossy to Ender!
Jane: I need you to focus on the big picture here, Cinder. Yes, Flora is being bossy to Ender. But the important thing is that Ender is not biting you in the butt.
Cinder: Or flushing tampons down the toilet?
Live. Laugh. Learn.
Ok seriously loved this and have to remember the boogers in my nose thing for when I need my kids to do something, especially shampooing their hair, because that is the worst chore known to man (the screaming and the crying alone)!!
Woke up this morning to the infamous ping back!! Thanks for including my crazy 🙂
You’re welcome. It’s brilliant. You’re brilliant. 🙂
I have the urge to hug you right now. 😉
Cyber hug initiated.
Bahahahaha! This is awesome! You have a way with words, my friend. You are hilarious!
And I love the picture – priceless!
made you look, made you stare.. I’m not quite sure how that got you out of your underwear…
Well, this shows that you inspired me. I haven’t recalled the actual version of that in erm some years…
So funny in so many bizarre ways. I just love it. Thanks for this. I’m going to send the link to my husband. We’ve got to remember that booger tip.
Remember it’s not mine, but Stephanie’s from Where Crazy Meets Exhaustion (a blog you should check out if it’s not on your hit list yet–I think it’s in your own vein. She says presumptuously as a reader of both…)
I will look it up. We haven’t “met” yet. Thanks.
