Funny Business

In case, you were wondering, the ball in this shoe is Thatcher's Gobstopper which he temporarily put there so he could take a break and jump on the trampoline, then suck on it later.

Latest Funny Business:

1. During a recent funeral for Thatcher's pet mouse, Wheely, he stated in his eulogy, "He was like a brother to me."

2. Three more mice have been purchased and laid to rest since then.

3. Tripped on some steps on campus causing the contents of my backpack to scatter all over the ground, including feminine hygiene right at the feet of an innocent male passerby.

4. Had to return a bra to Target. The only clerk working was a 21 year old fumbling young man. "There's no price tag on this," he said, his voice cracking. "Could you go get me another one?" he asked as the bra trembled in his hands.

5. While using the bathroom, the phone rang. To my chagrin, Thatcher answered it. "My mom is on the potty. She can't talk to you right now." It happened to be the CEO of a major organization. Awesome.


  1. That is AWESOME! Exceeded all of my expectations, so thank you. And Happy "New Moon" day!

  2. The gobstopper storage ---so cute!!!!

  3. AHAHHAHa! Oh my goodness, FUNNNY!!!

  4. These are hilarious! I didn't realize you have a blog until just now... so this will be fun to keep track of what you are up too. I have a bunch other people's blogs on my blog under the title Growing up in Cali ... you should check it out.

    PS your boys are so cute!

  5. Oh Mindy, Mindy, so glad you have those awesome moments like the rest of us! Wish I could have been a fly on the wall for bra boy!

  6. I love all your posts, but your family exploits are the ones that draw me in the most. Love. LOVE. Good update. As the mother of five boys, I am right with you. The stories I've lived and told...I should write a book :)

    I still laugh about the little one slipping you some tongue. Did I ever mention that I accidentally gave my youngster a hickie while I was drying him after a bath? So proud. So so proud...

    PS - Got my tickets to Paul Cardell - front row center. Mostly to see you :)

  7. Thanks for all the comments ladies! Glad you can all relate :-)

  8. Oh Mindy, how I love you! You crack me up! I once had to return some lingerie that I'd bought for a friend (she called off the wedding)... the lady asked me if I wanted to keep it and had any use for it!! No, I'm not married, don't need it, I'd like my money back. Thank you very much!
