Lighten Up Francis!

I know. I know. It's been kind of serious and dreary here lately.

I've done nothing to embarrass myself (that much) lately, so there's nothing there.

None of the boys have named any more body parts, so that's a dry well.

I was pretty psyched that I got a mention on Daily Kos the other day, but not a referral from it. Harumph!

Oh! And I did get to sign my son's not so stellar Social Studies test today. When did I become responsible enough to sign a test??!

I felt like I was forging my mom's signature.




PS--The blog is pink for the month of October because it's Breast Cancer Awareness month, duh!! Check your boobs. And learn more.

Good job on the Daily Kos mention! Congrats!!! You're big time now, baby.

Lawyer Mama said...

We're famous now, baby!

Hollis's preschool teacher asked me to call her Theresa and I was all confused. Am I old enough to call the teacher anything other than Mrs. Noel? That's only something *parents* do. Oh yeah....

canape said...

Congrats on your mention!

I can say I knew you when . . .

Mrs. Chicken said...

Can I admit that I didn't know that blog? Because I am a loser?

Jennifer aka Binky Bitch said...

Very impressive mention!

I've been meaning to email you and tell you that I had your number programmed into my cell phone yesterday so that I could text you yesterday and look all important at library time. Not one of those snooty moms was there yesterday!! But if felt good going in knowing you had my back!

BOSSY said...

Big. Time. Now you can post a little "As Seen On Daily Kos" button on your blog!!!!

Peg said...

Cheers to you, and all the moms mentioned on Daily Kos!!

Chris H said...

Boobs duly checked, squished... and lumpy bumpy free. What about yours????

Jill said...

C'mon over here if you want to sign some more crappy test results. We've got plenty. You'll feel really grown up then!

Congrats on your mention.

Kim said...

I check my boobs at least 3 times a day. Better safe than sorry I say.

Congrats on the mention!

Attila The Mom said...

Congrats!!

I know what you mean about forging Mom's signature.

Every time someone calls me Mrs. XXXX, I look around for my mother in law. ;-)

Kristin said...

hey, hey, hey... daily kos... you're running with the big dogs, now!

oh please, the signed tests... i send back missives... the teachers all hate me.

Neil said...

You only have to worry when you son starts forging YOUR signature on tests... uh, like I once did...

Lainey-Paney said...

Hola. I'm new to your blog.
I went to school in NO too.
random bit of info for you....

anywho....sorry you had to sign a SS test.
:(

Beth said...

Don't think of it as a serious and dreary - think of it as calm and quiet and enjoy!

Congrats on your Daily Kos mention.

Marie Green said...

I know. I always forget- I'm the PARENT. How did that happen???

melodyann said...

Ok, so i clicked on the link to the named body parts....

And then I read about Oodie and Chonk. And I promptly spit diet coke all over the screen, the keyboard, me, and the desk. I damn near choked to death.

Don't fear for the women he will date... they are gonna freakin' LOVE him!!!

slackermommy said...

Rock on! You did ask a fantastic question. Obviously you ARE a grown up and old enough to sign tests because your question rocked.

Worker Mommy said...

You went pink! I love it!

Queen of the Mayhem said...

Remember the little people....when you're a big star and all!

I knew Mamma when....... :)

Lisa said...

Congrats on the link and mention. How cool.

I "owe" you an e-mail. THANK YOu for responding so fast last week. Am on new migraine preventative meds that are preventing but doing other crapping things to my body. SO I plan to talk to you this week at some time. But have been thinking about you and what I was going to write you all week!

a half hour ago I yelled at a car speeding through our complex; "SLOW DOWN!!!" and looked around for my father.

MamaLee said...

Congrats on the mention!

And I have to sign a note sent home from my son's teacher today. I guess he was talking during quiet time.

MY son? Talking? Couldn't BE! lol
