My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Friday Fragments.....

Created by Mrs 4444, Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, "Heard" items, and other small gems and put them together in a Friday Fragments post.

Sonshine says: Momma! a skeleton has belly button bones and LEG bones too!! Yeeess Momma!!

Sonshine says: It's the Great Sphynx momma! The Great Sphynx is for talking! Momma asks: What do you think he'll say? Sonshine said: He'll say Halloween and Christmas are coming!!!

seen a couple weeks ago on the BOTTOM SHELF of the local grocery store next to the register was a Cosmopolitan magazine...the big headline? "Your Sexy Ass Workout" someone explain to me how this could possibly be considered appropriate???

anyone know WHO is paying for all these "Obama asks moms to return to school" or "Obama gives moms money" or "Obama supports...." ads??? Just wondering....

and WHY do those ads say "Obama" and not "the US government"??? or "Uncle Sam"??? since Obama's just a person and it's the government who's supposed to be giving all this money away.....

Sonshine's been watching Berenstain Bears videos:
Sonshine: "I'm going to play skateboarding with Lenny! And Sugars' going to play teaparty! And Mommy's going to play teaparty and Gator's gonna play skateboard with Lenny and Daddy's going to play skateboarding with Lenny!"
Me: "What about teaparty? won't Daddy want to play teaparty?"
Sonshine: "No Momma! Daddy wants to play skateboarding with Lenny! Momma and Sister play teaparty!"
Me: "are you sure?"
Sonshine: "Yes Momma! Me and Daddy and Gator wanna play skateboarding with Lenny! You and Sister play teaparty!"

note to self: When working in the flowerbed, if you think you smell dog poop, take your hands out of the dirt IMMEDIATELY and investigate!! Otherwise you'll have another close encounter of the smelly kind.

Just a heads up: If you think you smell ANY variety of poop, back away from the dirt, Mighty Mom! tee hee ;o)

I think the reason ads say Obama and not The U.S. Government is because it's Obama's plan and movement. The House and Congress have the final say on everything and the ability to pass what Obama has in mind, but it's his vision and movement.

Happy FF!

You've got me wondering now who is paying for those ads? I agree about the mags on display. Do they have to be out at all? Let the innocents stay innocent :)

Lisa said...

Yeah, we turn those magazine around at the checkout line. There appear to be no standards of decency at all any more.

I don't know where the ads come from, but I'd just as soon have Obama be the one who gets all the attribution, because then, hopefully, he'll also get all the blame, you know what I mean?

Love the kidspeak quotes (Kids are so funny!) Good for Sonshine, who has no trouble with his male identity!

And thanks for the lovely visual to end with there... Ewwwww....

See, they never taught me about the belly button bone in anatomy. I always knew I was missing something.

mub said...

Belly button bone, I love it!!

Kris said...

Lol...I think I would have backed away from the smell immediately kiddos love Berenstain Bears as well!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Belly button bone! I love it! :)

I once picked up what I thought was a piece of bark, but turned out to be dog poop...luckily I had my gardening gloves on at the time... ;)

Happy FF! :)

diana said...

i've wondered the same thing about those obama ads. mainly, who's putting them out there?

don't you use gloves?

Kirby3131 said...

You've got some great kids! Those were funny fragments :)

Our grocery store has little covers over most of the magazines at the check out stand. I prefer it that way.

No metrosexuals LOL What a hoot.

Oh, my gosh! What a wonderful header picture! That has to be your husband's mother, right?

Your kids say the cutest things. I remember the Berenstain Bears videos and books-Sweet memories (but as I recall, those books were LONG! I always groaned inwardly when the kids picked those for bedtime!
