Thanks, Mom

Leave it to my mom to know that She Will Be Loved is by Maroon 5 and not Five For Fighting. You know you're a bit out of touch when your mom knows more about current music than you do. I know what you're thinking. "Ummm, Ann--that song came out like five years ago." Well, whatever. Five years ago is about as close as I can keep up.

And just to make this post a little longer, I'll document something Camp said the other day: "Where the hell is the playdoh?"
To which I questioned, "What did you say?"
"I said, 'Where is the playdoh?'
"No. That's not what you said."
"I said, 'Where the hell is the playdoh."
"Camp, I know Daddy says that word, but it's not a good word. It's not a word that we should say."

You always know a family is white trash when their five-year-old swears. Dang it.

The other night we were trying to get through a large pile of snow to get into a store and Caden says, "What the hell, I have never see so much snow"!

It actually came out more like, "what the help", but we all knew what he was trying to say. I about died since we were with my in-laws.

Scott just gave me that look since I am the only one that uses that naughty word in our house (very seldom though).

Well, my niece said the lovely s&^* word. So, don't feel so bad. And I was totally thinking it was by Maroon 5, which by the way, have you ever seen that video? If not, you should check it out. There is a smeared lipstick part that is hilarious!

We don't say what the hell. We say "What the heck." One day I asked Optimus Prime, "O.P., what does what the heck mean?" His answer: "You don't get any toys."
I say it when I'm frustrated at the state of my home.

I had no idea who sang that song. Thanks Kath!

I am just lucky that none of mine swear, if they copied me, that wouldn't be the case unfortunately. See my post about swearing on for details of why I am NOT going to make that a New Year's resolution this year. They only say "BUTT NUGGET" and "CRAP NUGGET!" Because that is what their Daddy says. Look at how much influence Daddy's have. :) Good people swear, and if we are white trash for doing so, then, so be it. I myself would rid myself of it, and slowly its getting weeded out by gum.

Well, I'm sure it will happen to me too. And you should definitely see Lars and the Real Girl. You would love it. Your not out of the Loop. It's a topic issue. When do we ever talk movies?

I loved your last post by the way. I would LOVE to belt out a song one day. It actually burns more calories. There's a whole fitness category dedicated to it called cardioke. The other thing I want to do is dance and throw my hands up while I'm on the treadmill. So funny about Camp. He's just like a little Brian.
