Inside the Blogger’s Studio: You Know It Happens At Your House Too

YKIHAYH logo - compressedWelcome You Know This Happens At Your House Too – we’re happy to have you Inside the Blogger’s Studio! This series is a way to get to know other bloggers, while also getting a glimpse into the life of a fellow parent. Who doesn’t love feeling like they aren’t the only ones going crazy???

I fell in love with this blogger when I saw her absolute adoration of Johnny Depp. After seeing him in Chocolat, I was a smitten kitten and can completely understand her devotion. But there’s so much more to her blog than just Johnny. She’s funny, true and great to read. Plus, she hosts a blog hop that you can meet some great folks.

With that said, let the questions begin!

If you had to sum up your blog in two sentences, what would you say?

A completely random, sarcastic, humorous look at some of the important, and the not-so-important, things in life. If we can’t laugh at ourselves about what happens in our homes, we are taking life way too seriously.

What thing did you do today as a parent you wish you could take back and do over?

I fed my kids sugary cereal for breakfast. Not a choice I should ever make on a day where the temperature is not supposed to get above freezing and there is no school.

What thing did you do today that you are happiest about?

I did get out of bed this morning. My dad always told me that every day that you can get up, read the obituaries, and not find your name is a good day. I may not always want to get up, but I’m happy that I can.

What is your least favorite activity to do with your children?

Feeding them. The constant whines over not liking this or not wanting that. Throw in the smacking, slurping, and other various sound effects and I hardly make it through a meal without wanting to stick my butter knife in my ears.

What is your most favorite activity to do with your children?

Laughing with them. Something about their giggles just cures all ills. Especially when the giggles lead to farts. Farts are always funny. Unless you do it at the table during dinner, then you just get in trouble.

When your child drives you absolutely crazy and you want to scream a curse word, which word do you wish you could say?

Holyshitmotherfuckerdamnitshitpissmeoffwhatinthehell? I find I feel much better if I string multiple words together into one massive curse word. It is therapeutic really. I would strongly suggest you try it, even if it is only in your mind.

What’s your favorite lie you have ever told your child?

Wait, we can lie to them? I swear Santa is real, I saw him at the mall. The computer really is broken; I think I wore it out blogging and Facebooking all day. You really will get an infestation of baby spiders in your room if you don’t clean it. That cookie recipe really was jacked, you won’t like those double chocolate chip things one bit, they are horrible. I really do think the pool is closed today; they must be cleaning it or something. My phone battery really is dead, or it will be once I catch up on my games of Words With Friends. We don’t have any candy in the house, have a banana.

At what moment did you realize that you really were grown up?

I’m not really sure I have had that moment yet. Maybe I have and just don’t want to acknowledge it. As I sit here and type this I watch four of my five kids playing cards, coloring, and laughing. While I know they are all mine and I am responsible for raising them, I still have a hard time believing that they are really mine and at times I am scared to death for them. I suppose I will really grow up someday, but for right now we are enjoying being kids together. Laughing at bodily functions and telling cheesy jokes, playing board games and watching cartoons. I’m just an older, and much bigger, version of them. Complete with a checkbook and a credit card.

  3. My kids are grown and gone- or are they. Let’s see… one is dirt poor in NYC and needs constant infusions of moola, another is afraid to go to far so he’s living down the street and I still feed all of his friends, and the daughter is home this week visiting from Chicago and I just did her laundry. My favorite lie: telling them I could handle anything.. forever. Uugh!!!!
