WRONG! Everyone is just WRONG!

My whole life is RaNDoM.
So how come I sit down to write and I draw a blank?
It's not really a blank - it's just that I have so much to say!
Help! I'm talking and I can't shut up!
Go over to The Un Mom and see Keely for something less nonsensical (or maybe not).

* Tiny Baby enjoyed a quiet and sedate Sweet 16 Birthday.
Something is wrong with my children.
They refuse any hoopla.
They never want to have a party.
What is wrong with them that they DON'T want to be the center of attention?

* We opened presents after school and went to the restaurant of his choice.
He has been waiting several months to receive this -

I know, weird, a fountain pen.
What is wrong with my kids?

* Don't worry, his Christmas list is more normal (kinda).
He wants the new Call of Duty video game - also known as COD.
A new controller for the PS3
And, here's where the wheel go off the track -"A COD designated Snuggie."
His words. Not mine.
I asked, "What's wrong with a blanket?"
Parker: "Then your arms get cold.  You definitely have to have sleeves.  Oh and I don't want the leopard print or the camo.  I just want a plain one."

* This is the first high school parent/teacher conference in seven years that I am NOT making dinner for 300.
I'm dropping off my roaster, a crock pot and a couple of giant bowls, but that's my only investment.
I "get" to go to a viewing and a funeral.
Hmmm.......maybe I should have volunteered to do the meal.

* You know something is wrong with me when I am counting down the days until Lil Wayne gets out of jail.
But in my defense, it's only because I cannot take another song featuring Nicki Minaj.  She's dirty , and not in the good way.  She's trashy.  And it's soooo unladylike to rap.  Please make her hold hands with Katy Perry and skip into the sunset or get put in jail for weapons charges.  Either one.

* Something is wrong with Garrett.
Garrett hates blogging, specifically, my blogging, more specifically, my blogging about him.
He hates cooking.
Well maybe he doesn't hate cooking, but he doesn't do it.
So should I have him drug tested?
He called yesterday and said, "Mom!  You should totally check out this blog.  It's by my friend's mom and it's just like yours.  It looks just like yours.  She shares really cool recipes.  They look so good!  I'm looking at a recipe for pumpkin/chocolate chip muffins.  They look really good and I might make them because we're going to a potluck and we might take these.  So yeah, I will probably make these.  You should check out the blog."
Yeah..........something is wrong with him.

* I saw these at Target yesterday -
in the street walker Girl's Department.  If you buy these for your 7 year old, I'm unfriending you.  What is wrong with people?

Well, I'm sure nothing is wrong with you!
So get on over and visit some of the other RaNDoM posters!
Have a great Tuesday!

I sometimes wonder about the clothes they sell for little girls. They look like you are shopping in Vegas at Strippers-R-Us. Then I wonder about the parents that buy that stuff for their daughters.

Rachael said...

Seriously, can you believe the kind of clothes "they" want me to dress my girls in? I had the hardest time finding decent clothes for my 7-year-old this year. Ick.

Ugh. That outfit is terrible. Interestingly enough I saw the same thing at a football game on sat and it was the MOM who was wearing it!

Tricia said...

No WAY! I saw the SAME pants/skirt/horror @ my local Target last week. right out front on display! I actually touched one of the legs & rolled my eyes & grunted disapprovingly!

and sadly, if my daughter (who is seven) would have been with me, she would have said "oooh, cute".
: / urg. I hate that moms think it's "darling" to see their little girls in grown up clothes. (not that any grown up should wear those, either....but I digress.)

Mama Badger said...

Interesting apparel choices by Target. Your kid is expanding his interests in college. Wait a second, there's not a girl behind this, is there?

Danelle said...

Happy birthday to Parker! I would love it if my kids didn't want a party. I really don't care for Chuck E. Cheese all that much. And those pant/short/lace things? Good grief! Doesn't it make you glad you have boys?

Amy said...

It is outfits like that and all the other yucky clothes for little girls that make me really hope that #3 here is a boy again. I guess we'll find out in a few weeks, but I'm still hoping for a boy so I don't have to sew a bunch of clothes.

Andrea said...

Hehe, love the Random today. You're kids are weird (but I do mean that in the nicest of ways...)

I saw a baby in jeggings at Target today. I almost threw up. *Shudder*

Rosie said...


I was just wondering, what is your template?
I have been looking for it for a while, but i don't think it is on Blogger anymore..

Raven said...

I can't believe some of the clothes they sell for little girls these days, it's ridiculous. It's bad enough they make them for teenage girls.

I wish my Midgets didn't want parties for their birthdays. Every year it's a huge deal with a slumber party after and I got tired of it about the time they were 7.
