Shut My Mouth

You can feel like a perfectly reasonable, completely sane, normal human being, until your children come along. They can take some of the most precious moments of your life and reduce them to something resembling a gross science experiment. Take the other day for example. I was in the car, minding my own business, concentrating on the road in front of me on our 4 hour road trip back from Aunt Vonda's house, and PRAYING to find a Starbucks in the land of nothing-ness. My 3 kids and our 16 year old neighbor, Kyle who we had taken with us as a hostage were chatting it up about birthdays in the back over the music when I suddenly heard my soon-to-be 14 year old daughter Kaitlyn announce that her dad had videotaped her birth. She went on to say how disgusting it was. I sat there for a moment wondering if I should be offended, thinking how she had dimished something so sacred, and beautiful and special, when divine inspiration gave me the words to silence the subject forever.......
"Well, at least we didn't videotape the conception."


  1. Julie you're good. You think pretty darn quick!

  2. I love it!!!! You are a nut! A quick thinking nut at that, as I would never have thought of that responce and if I DID it would have been about a week later! LOL!

  3. I love it. I am sure that did the trick- high 5 to you, you cool mom- you did us proud with that comeback!

  4. BWAHAHAHAHA! I love your wit!

  5. It's a good thing I'm not drinking milk right now... It would've come out my nose, I'm laughing *snort* so hard!

  6. That was the "mother" of all comebacks! Touche!


Awaiting your words......
