Only His Hat Is Keeping His Head From Bursting, Plus Some Other Stuff



Not the picture I was planning for this week, but we're going away this weekend and I ran out of time. And the first day of summer is coming up quick.

If you have time today, go check out Cheer Up Nation. It's a new blog by Brian of PapaTV. It's a whole bunch of feel good. Unless you're a cold hearted puppy hater

And finally, something else new and cool from my home girl, Kat at 3 Bedroom Bungalow. Dear... fill in the blank.

Dear So and So...

Dear Toy Makers,

I love the Transformers. The first movie was great and I can't wait from the second. What I need you to do is stop making so many effing transforming toys. Transforming Transformers are fine, but do we really need transformer versions of every other toy in existence? Seriously, what's next? Transforming Barbies?

Dear Person driving in front of me with young children not in seat belts,

When my plans for world dominance come to fruition, your kind will find yourselves lining up against the wall. The public should be allowed, no, required to drag you people from your cars and beat you senseless. If the thought of your 'rights' even crossed your mind reading this, get off my blog you murdering idiot.

Dear Spiders,

This is my house. Mine. Find your own. Go check out the neighb- Hey, did my kids invite you with some type of pagan summoning ritual? Damn those kids! I knew it!

Connor! Liam!

Go grab a button from Kat's, it's cathartic.


PS. All of the sign pictures so far have been of my youngest son, Liam. Connor, unfortunately, can read quite well for a six year old.

  2. Better be sure Connor doesn't share with his brother what the signs say then.

    People who don't put seat belts on kids (or put them in proper carseats) ought to be shot. Just an idea.

  5. He does look about ready to burst!! Yeah, Liam!!!!

    I once called the police on a woman driving her car with the kids literally jumping around in the backseat. She had temporary tags... the cops could do NOTHING! Ugh.

  6. What is it with the spiders this year??? Bigger, uglier, less intimidated by humans? This can't end well...

  9. I can not imagine the looks that you get when you snap a shot of the boy holding the signs. AND!!! I love his bathing suit 3 sizes too big!!! The trunks should last you a few years. I need to see a picture of the oversized winter coat!!

    I saw an ASS!! the other day with their kid on the floor under the dashboard due to a lack of seat in the back of the beautiful porshe!!! Both parents were in the front 2 seats. I should have called the cops!!

  10. LOVE your Dear So and So and will be checking this myself to perhaps add some of my own... Love the photo of Liam in his huge trunks!

  11. O Captain, my Captain... such forceful, authoritative words with a hint of testosterone... wow, I think your manhood is showing. Might want to put that shit away.. just a heads up.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Oh, pure joy!! When do we as adults loose that - bottle it please. I would buy a case.

    And parents with unbuckled kids, totally on my smackdown list, followed closely by the smoking parent who barely cracks the window. You need a license to drive...

    ReplyDelete
  13. I have to wait until your plans come to fruition before I start dragging those people out of their cars and beating them senseless?

    Whoops.

    ReplyDelete

  18. I love the sign pics. Keep 'em coming as long as he's illiterate!

    Dear So & So is fab. I think I may grab the button myself. I love the letter to the parents. Good job, yo!

  19. My jumping crickets can kick your spiders' asses.

  20. I honestly hope I know you when those bits are old enough to exact their highly coordinated revenge on you. It's my hope they have a co-authored blog and write about you.

    PS: Tell Supreme Leader thanks for the comment the other day! I always get a little giddy when she stops by!

  21. Do people say something when you have your kid holding up signs at a sprinkler park? I suppose over time, they'll eventually say "oh, he must be a blogger." I like tie "Dear so and so" idea.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I may have to see Transformers alone. We can't find a babysitter.

    Or...maybe it will be so LOUD they won't hear our baby crying.

    even babies need to see Transformers!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Your kid's smile is as big as his pants!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Why did you let one of your kids learn to read? You'll regret that when he takes over and sticks you in the old folks' home. I give it a week.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have a bunch of letters I'v ebeen meaning to write...

    Is that a water park?

    ReplyDelete
  26. What would be wrong with a Transforming Barbie? Look, its Chastity…oh wait! Now its Chaz.

    ReplyDelete
  27. hahah! I just did a dear god and didn't even realize I was trendy!

    Look at me now suckah!

    ReplyDelete
  28. That's definitely a picture for a Hallmark card - how cute!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love puppies.
    I don't love spiders.

    ReplyDelete
  30. love your boys names. and your post didn't suck either. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Send the kids down here, it's summer all year long. All.damn.year.long. Ugh.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Dear So and So:

    Would you kindly stop placing all
    your toys in those stupid solid
    plastic wrappers. They are miserable to open and they just
    end up in landfill. I think everyone should send the unwanted plastic crap back to the manufacturer, Collect!

    ReplyDelete
  33. We were just joking the other day that we're going to leave our kids in their carseats until they're getting teased about it in school.
    I hate seeing kids flop about in the car. (Though I have very fond memories of floppping about in the back of a station wagon. Go figure.)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Summer is awesome! Enjoy it.
    I love the idea of transforming barbie, but only if you can transform her into middle aged Barbie who's had a few kids and then geriatric barbie with a shelf on her walker to prevent her from running over her (what used to be) breasts.

  35. Summer- I have been WAITING FOR THEE!!!

  36. The Spiders are plottting to take over the world. They are all in place....

    ReplyDelete
  37. Cute picture!

    Hope you have a great father's day!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I really just want to be a copy cat stinking rat and start handing my kids signs made of ripped up beer cases. I don't even care that they can both read. They're just that funny.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Doesn't it suck when they learn to read? I've decided I'm not going to teach my youngest. Then I can spell things out I don't want her to know about forever.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Seriously. I hate Transformer toys. Too many damn parts! I got one stuck in my foot today - I think it was Bumblebee's freaking head that doesn't stay on.

    ReplyDelete
  41. You should see some of the spiders the country in France houses...holy mother of I'm not usually scared or bothered by spiders, but these shmukers freak me out! There's one kind we call the dog spiders--they're big,hairy, have fangs and big oogly eyes that follow you, no, I swear. They actually bring me to go get my vacuum, plug it in, start it up (this is a long process I assure you) and suck 'em up...as for the rate of non-seat belt wearing kids here, you would be on Death Row if you saw...
    Enjoy the weekend away...& if you want to see the spiders at work outside our house, check out my Halloween '08 entry on da blog.

  42. First day of summer? How does that work?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Your son is so freakin' cute! now I just wish that summer weather would actually figure out that it is summer here in the Northeast U.S.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I am so with you on the drivers with their kids out of their seat belts but if you could forgive me - I have one child that no matter what I say or do or threaten him with, he is always jumping out of his I swear, if I could find a harness I would strap that boy down!

    ReplyDelete
  45. The smile on that face is priceless!
