Let's Get Silly

Friday, September 30, 2011

It's Friday, Friday! Gotta Get Down On Friday! Sorry.

So, now that I have started a Facebook Fond of the Silliness page, is it really necessary to have Facebook Friday anymore?  I thought about this and decided....yes, yes it is quite necessary.

1) I'm happy to announce that I feel like I am gaining a handful of friends here in Texas.  I use a very strict measuring system to gauge whether or not someone is a friend.  I ask myself the following question: If I had a laundry sheet coming out of my pants, do I think this person would tell me?  If the answer is "Yes", then we are on our way to friendship necklaces!

2). Nora had Manners Day at school this week.  All the kids were to get dressed up and use their best manners.  The school did things like put nice tablecloths on the cafeteria tables, had classical music playing, etc.  Nora explained it well.  She said:  Today, if we make a gross noise we do not laugh, we just say "please excuse me".

3.) You know how we all have random things our brains just can't get right?  For me I always spell the word entrance 'enterance'.  Everything else in life I totally get.  (Except for math and why there is braille writing on random walls that no visually impaired person would know to just go and check.)  Well, for my husband it's his inability to say Canada correctly.  If he's talking quickly, he almost always pronounces it 'Canadia'.  This brings me joy.  He has recently taken a business trip to Canadia and I've enjoyed watching him slowly say the word so that he says it correctly.

4.)  September is Craniofacial awareness month!  Hurray!  I'm going to celebrate by adding an Operation Smile page to my blog this week.  

Here is my favorite cleftie kiddo.

1st Birthday
Every time she is pregnant, she will have a 1 in 20 chance of her child having a cleft.  So, you see we have a lot of work to do before she has her babies.  You know, when she's 35.

That's enough for today kids.

Don't forget to vote here:  

Parents.com Funniest Mom Blogs - you have to register, which is lame-o.  But I would appreciate it, which is not lame-o.  I shan't win, I just want to increase readership.  Then, someday I WILL WIN!

We are doing a family Operation Smile donation this Christmas where we each (kids included) donate so we can help someone have a new smile! :)
I absolutely LOVE the manners day thing. Oh my gosh, my M needs that very, very badly.....

I love the idea of having manners day at school. It sounds like the kids should have had a great time getting dressed up and playing like grown ups.

So Sweet. Love your random thoughts. Happy you've met friends, too... btw, I can never spell recieve / receieve properly !!

Every day is manners day here.

Well, at least the part about making gross noises.

I'm not sure we actually say "Pardon me."

And your daughter could not be any cuter - she's brilliant. So surely she will not have sex until her mid-thirties.

Did I type that out loud?

Pardon me.
