I couldn't possibly make this sh*t up.

Contest! Name this post!

I don’t know what to call this blog post. Therefore I decided to have a contest! If you leave your title suggestion in the comments section, I will pick the best comment out of the bunch! If there is only one comment (mom) or (gasp) none, then the contest is null and void. No prize will be awarded.

Wait… Prize? Why not! I’ll give the winner an autographed drawing by Jack. That will be worth something when he’s rich and famous!

Okay it’s settled. Let’s begin.

How many of you still have your Christmas tree up? (Me raising my hand).

How many of you cut gum out of your hair today? (Me again).

How many if you hate how the iPhone corrects “of” to “if” all the time?

Sigh.

Last one… HOW many if …OF you were sitting on the couch eating oatmeal and dribbled some on your shirt and then moved your hair out of the way and noticed the oatmeal moved with it and THEN realized it wasn’t oatmeal at all but the gum that had mysteriously gone missing in the car when your son leaned forward to kiss you and then had a weird look on his face like he lost something and then when you asked him what was wrong he guiltily said “Ohhhh nothing”. Show of hands? Come ON! Don’t let me win them all!

Okay, let me confess. I’m hyper caffeinated right now. I had green tea twice today. And that’s because I had sushi twice today. Lunch and dinner. That’s a first. But oh so good.

And this is the 2nd time I’m typing this post because I lost the first one when I tried to put a photo in! Gah! Luckily I’m like super speedy!!!

Now, because this isn’t “Sh*t My Mom Says”, I will let you know what Jack said on the way home from our sushi lunch / hockey game play date.

Jack: Never take me to the Guggenheim museum. 2 reasons. It’s boring AND I’ve already been there. I can sit in an airport for two hours with no cartoons but that museum was ridiculous!

And there you have it. Totally random.

I call this post “Untitled” circa 2013. Let’s see what you come up with.

Oh and before I forget, this blog title will change on the 25th to “Sh*t My 8-Year-Old Says. I can’t believe I started this blog when Jack was 5! Three years of typing…

Holy sh*t.

    • I love it for a very specific reason!!! When I was pregnant I had been talking to a friend about what to name the baby. He said Rothschild Deluxe III. I went with Jack. Another friend still calls Jack “baby Spobis”. Long story.

  3. Been There, Done That, Didn’t Like It…Again.
    Well, you liked the tea and sushi twice, but the gum and museum are apparently not to be repeated.
