This Post Is Short, But It Works Out A Lot

Today's post...

...is parked over at LA Moms Blog, where I post a couple times a month on topics related (strangely enough) to motherhood.


This one is an homage to wonderful comedian Jeff Foxworthy's signature "...You Might Be a Redneck" routine, customized for a mom's point of view and titled, "...You Might Be a Mother."

(I'd post it here, too, but that's against LA Moms Blog rules and last time I broke a rule they put me on a timeout and wouldn't let me watch TV for a whole week.)

I hope you'll click over and check it out...and that it gives you a chuckle or two.

Also...


I'm excited to report that I was quoted on Blogtations!


This blog is big fun - kind of like a greatest hits of the blogosphere and a swell place to find funny blogs. Thanks, Blogtations!

Eudea-Mamia said...

Blogtations - so cool.

Off to check out your clickity post. I wouldn't want to get in trouble. I'd have to shove my 2-year-old out of the chair.

flydragon said...

Went over and checked it out. LOL Damn, I love reading your stuff!!

Braja said...

Oh, how sad, your own blog is all lonely!

Ann's Rants said...

Ewww, the kleenex one definitely rings true. Reminds me of my disgust at a friend who told me she instinctively ate previously choked-on food from her toddler. Guess who gobbled up her own child's chokable the following week in true birdy-fashion? Guilty. Loved the post. Love your blog.

Bravo, or brava, whatever, grammar in more than one language is troublesome.

Jamie said...

Hahaah, the "I just baked a cake on my face..." I think I may have just peed myself :-)

Blissful Babe said...

Those are great! You go girl!

LarryG said...

thanks for the link!
great to start monday with a laugh...

Yesterday the preacher said "when you confess, you are made righteous, so know that you are righteous, But You don't know to go around telling everybody!" - funny the way it was said!

La Belette Rouge said...

Congrats to you for the blogtation. And just for the record, you are so much funnier than Jeff Foxworthy, have a better mustache and are prettier too.

Bar-b said...

Cool, cool, cool!!!!!!!!!!!!

Will check both of your sites.

Happy Monday of a holiday week!

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

Sounds fun, I'll go check out both.

you forgot "if you introduce yourself as Tommy's mommy instead of your name, you might be a mother". of course my favorite thing is telling my children that I'm not mommy and that they should seek out daddy right away. :)

Florinda said...

I will go and check out your quotes! Also, I have carried through on my threat to turn that Moms Blog post into a meme - it will post on my blog tomorrow (Tuesday) :-).

MammaDucky said...

"If you've ever given a fifth of scotch and your therapist's business card as a baby-shower gift...you might be a mother."
~are you trying to tell me this is frowned upon??

"If you've ever secretly gloated when your frightened child ran to you for comfort rather than to his father.."
~I'm supposed to do that secretly? Hmm, interesting.

Andy said...

That headline reminds me of Big Pun's anthem, "I'm not a playa, I just $^$# a lot." Not sure if that's where you are going with it. But I already did.

Swirl Girl said...

Simply riotous and righteous!

MuseSwings said...

Great quote - and such a good reminder to the rest of us to take ourselves over to the makeup counter at K-Mart in person. Congrats!

TattooedMinivanMom said...

They won't even let you post your OWN words on your OWN blog?

Who do I need to speak to about this? I want the manager in charge.

KiKi said...

Congrats on Blogtations!!! :-)

Alberta and Ava said...

I believe that you are in a 3 way for tie for the funniest woman in the world, along with Ellen and my sister, Ava. I don't know how I got to your blog, but I putting you on my daily read list right this red hot minute. I can use a laugh every morning!

Tessa said...

Not only do you totally crack me up and bring dazzling sunshine to a cloudy day, you read some fascinating books, too. I've just had a browse through your reading list and I'm in heaven! (So is my Amazon bill)

Anna...
And, I'm back, stumbled you, Darlin'. That was damn good. When I became a mother, I had no idea it would take this kind of committment, my own.

The Igloo Keeper... said...

Smart AND funny? That's not fair...

Talking about blogs, thanks for saying nice things about mine! I was thrilled to discover someone except fat, male, bald, 30-something horror geeks (similar to myself)are reading it!

Keep on dropping by - don't be scared!

Mer said...

Congrats on being quoted! And not by a child repeating something you'd rather he hadn't heard... ;)

Happy Thanksgiving to you too!! Do they celebrate in California like the rest of the country?? Or do they do something wacky with the turkey???? Just asking, I've heard strange things about L.A.

Quirkyloon said...

You are so funny! Hope you enjoy your days of bloating and binging!

I know I will!
