Deja Vu Blogfest

DL Hammons @ Cruising Altitude 2.0 is hosting the Deja Vu blogfest!  I saw other people playing this game-- and I wanted to play too!  

click the graphic to check out all the other awesome posts!

How it works:
On December 14th as the day unfolds and everyone hops from one blog to another, what they will be reading is the best of the best (as determined by you) from this year.  The blogosphere will be chock full 2012 writing brilliance!  Encouragement, enlightenment, knowledge, bared souls, stimulation, hilarity, insecurities, success stories!  All on display…the very same day.  And it couldn't be any easier to take writing necessary!
Here's a gem of a tale from last January-- hope you enjoy!

I shouldn't be blogging right now.  At noon I have a hardcore (as in: superduperImightfailhard) French Exam and I should probably do some last minute studying... But, I should be doing a lot of other things that I don't do.  So, I'm totally going to blog for a minute!

So... a couple of days ago when I picked Eva up from preschool there was a note on her daily sheet about an "incident" that had happened earlier in the day.

Apparently my child put her hand in a puddle of water in the bathroom..

and then...

proceeded to taunt another child that she was going to "Wipe Pee on Them."


You read that right.

I hate when stuff like this happens at school because I have to act surprised by her behavior and pretend that I feel it's completely unacceptable for her to do stuff like that.

But, I secretely think it's really, really funny... Not to mention, I know that it's completely my fault!

We're goofy... OKAY!?
She has seen me numerous times walk up to her father and wipe my wet hands on his arms and sweetly say, "We were out of toilet paper," and then burst into hysterical laughter. 

Stupid things make me laugh, get over it.

Or the fact that Eva and I make it a point to pronounce poop, PEWP... rather long and drawn out and then proceed giggle about how silly it sounds.  Pewp.

Or that she'll sometimes joke that she went potty in the tub and then take a drink of her bath water.

And we both laugh about it.

Shit, we are gross!  Shit.  Shit.  Shit.

But, back to the preschool.  I read the note, held back a smirk (I know she shouldn't do that stuff!!  I know it's gross... but it's my fault!  She acts JUST LIKE ME.  I'm inappropriate... I'm sorry!)  and go through the motions of being flabbergasted at such a shocking behavior.

"I'm so sorry."
"I will definitely talk about it with her tonight."
"Yes, you are right.  Completely unacceptable."

Do you know how hard it is to have a conversation with a 4 year about why she can't do something that she LEARNED FROM YOU??

Yeah, I felt about this big: .

That's right.  The size of that tiny period right up there.

Her response was that, "It was just water!  It wasn't really pee!  It was a joke!"

I just told her that only Mommy thinks that kind of stuff is funny, because Mommy is kind of weird.  And, maybe we should just stop with those kind of jokes.

She said, "Okay..."

Then she said, "Mommy, can you drive faster?  I really gotta... PEWP."

And then we both laughed hysterically.

Who's going to hell in handbasket?  This girl!

I've posted this video before- but I find it to be relevant:


  1. Great post! I am your newest follower.

  2. I'm your newest fan! Can I help it if I think "pull this finger" is still funny??? :)

    Thank you for taking part in the blogfest today!!

  3. Rolling on the floor laughing. From on inappropriate parent to another.

  4. Don't feel bad. You aren't alone. You should've heard some of the gross conversations we used to have around the dinner table when our kids were growing up. Now, I have grandchildren who share our sick sense of humor. Life's too short not to laugh about a fart. Count me in as your newest follower.

  5. Hahaha, I imagine there are plenty of parents out there who have inappropriate jokes with their kids and have to act like it's terrible when the teacher calls. I'm waiting to get a call from one of my kids' teachers saying my child answered a question with "your butt." It'll happen. Mark my words.

    Late finishing the Deja Vu visiting, as the power went out the other night when I was in the middle of it!
