So, I was driving the kids to school when this conversation happened:
CHILD: “Mom, I’ve made an important decision.”
ME: “What about?”
CHILD: “Well, [SIBLING] thinks it’s gross when I pick my nose and eat it so I’m not going to do that anymore.”
ME: “It seems like you put a lot of thought into that decision.”
CHILD: “I did.”
From this date forth, I will be doing all my parenting through this sibling who seems to wield much greater power over his/her siblings than I do.
My oldest son, David, just recently turned 13 years old. Which now makes me the mother of a teenager.
I once heard a psychologist say that adolescence is mother nature’s way of preparing parents for the child’s departure. David’s decided to get an early jump on that preparation.
Seriously, Puff, it couldn’t have been that bad…no one’s ever complained before!
Fisbee, you Naughty Elf, what are you doing in Nic’s room? Oh, Fisbee….not the Puffle!
Skeleton: “Dude, I am so HIGH! I can see a bunny wearing a tiara and an eyemask sitting on a pumpkin.”
What holiday characters do during the other 11 months of the year. Fisbee, you naughty elf, you’re supposed to share!
Yeah, Santa Panties…
- Oooooooh, that feels soooooo nice….
Fisbee, you naughty elf, what are you doing in my lingerie draw…even I don’t go in there anymore!
Guess I better apologize to Ron for yelling at him for eating all the ice cream.
Fisbee, you naughty elf, get a bowl and spoon!
Everyone likes sno-cones until they learn how they’re made.
Can you spot me a $20? Barbie wants to get paid.
Fisbee, you naughty elf, if you need money ask me for it!
So, Marie decided she wanted to get in on this “naughty elf” action, too. She came over yesterday to borrow Fisbee and take some pictures. Let’s see what’s on
my her camera, shall we?
fake gasp* MARIE! How could you!? That is my daughter’s Barbie camper! REALLY! I NEVER would take credit for this myself! Quick, find me some pearls to clutch! And bring my vapors!
