I wanted to share a doozy of a story with you that would leave NO DOUBT that we are in fact THAT family...you know the ones. But, my life has been strangely normal lately.
Because surely my toddler discovering she could actually PUT things in the two little nose holes, also called nostrils, this week doesn't really qualify me. It turns out that the blue noise putty hidden in my son's room has many uses, including but not limited to, shoving them into your brain, followed by tiny bits of toilet paper.
Her snot is still blue.
And while I'm retrieving paper from my daughter's nose with tweezers, it's probably completely normal for my out-of-town hubby to call from the airport to let me know he found a lost sippy cup in his travel bag. He discovered it because the sour milk EXPLODED from the pressure of air travel, causing many to question the foul odor. Yep, just an ordinary day.
Every week I receive emails from other moms staying "We are THAT family too." I've laughed and taken comfort (at your expense, of course) reading of your embarrassing and real life moments. I think there's a little bit of THAT family in all of us. It seemed fitting to provide a central gathering place to share our moments. And since I'm celebrating my 2 year blogoversary this week, I giving away TEN prizes to TEN carnival linkers!
Most days, I feel good about who we are and where we're heading as a family. But I'll be the first to admit, sometimes when my toddler lets out her ear-piercing scream or we end up in the emergency room more than once in a weekend, I want a disguise!
There. That's better. Hmm.....I wonder who that woman is?
