Dear Someone!

Today I'm joining in with my favorite Shawty, Shortmama, for Dear Someone letters.

Dear Andrew,
Do we seriously have to have the same "running with sticks" conversation at every.single.softball.practice? Don't you get tired of hearing "I spend enough time at the flipping hospital working, I am in no mood to sit in the ER for hours holding your freaking eyeball in my hand!" ? Because I get tired of saying it. Over and over and over....
Yo Mama

Dear Elayna,
You are on the biggest non-listening kick of your lifetime. It's like I'm speaking Chinese! Do me a favor and take a crash course in the Chinese language before my head explodes!
Yo Mama

Dear Shelbie,
Clearly, I am super cute and fashionable. But fortheloveofGod, STOP wearing my clothes! Seriously, you have your own, and WAY more than I do! Keep your paws off of my stuff!
Yo Mama

Dear Tim,
You're off the hook this week. Enjoy it while it lasts!
Constipated - JUST KIDDING!
Yo Mama

Dear John,
Thank you so much for making dinner while I slept on Wednesday afternoon, so that I wouldn't have to cook when we got home from softball practice at 7:30 PM. You are so full of awesomesauce!
Your Loving Wife,

Dear Daily Shite,
Thanks for posting this....totally made my day!

I have a virtual Easter basket for you on my blog. You are not obligated to pass it on. I give my newest followers awards, etc. when I receive them. Have a great day!

Yesterday after Rhiannon threw a fit about not getting her way about something I just looked at her and said "Are you new here? Because Im pretty sure thats not how it goes in this house". Its like she has no clue about the rules any more

Julie said...

Jenny said...

LOL that was great, what is it with kids running with sticks. I have that same conversation with my son weekly.

Sometimes I think I should just have a recording of my voice so I don't have to repeat things 8,039 times a day. Yay for having dinner made while you napped!

Symply Me said...

Someone, someday, has got to invent an "english to childspeak" dictionary. My kids just stare at me when I talk, much the way you described, unless I yell. I don't like to yell, hence the need for the dictionary...

Heather said...

I love when you get all ranty! It's so super cute!


Daffy said...

Holding your eyeball in my hand.....

I may have to steal that one! These were great!

Mrs4444 said...

OMG-Thanks so much for the out-loud laugh about the "holding your eyeball" bit!

Yea, John! :)

KK said...

So funny! It always makes me feel better to get those thoughts out!
