LOL – my little guy has been all about no clothes this summer too… highly recommend ordering your future SIL's gift online and paying their shipping – usually cheaper than buying something, wrapping it and paying shipping too…
August 10, 2010 at 7:09 am
It's hard to grasp the feeling behind the written word, unless the feeling is written too. Girl you better let me know if I make you feel uncomfortable with my written word. I try not to be misunderstood, but it still happens.
I agree buy the gift online. I bet it's cheaper.
What in the world did you do to your BB.
I can't wait to hear the "Oh no he didn't"

AHH…the joys of the back-handed compliment…leaves you thinking, "Did they just say????"
Love the popcorn story…I'm kid free this week and while the peace and quiet is nice, I miss the shenanigans!
Did you get your laptop fixed?
August 10, 2010 at 7:31 am
If you think someone is bein rude, they are..I have that same problem..like sayin somethin rude and givin it a 1/2 ass comment so it makes it ok..guess it depends on what they say
But then people prob think that about me cause I'm so sarcastic..lol
The Mommyologist says
I can't believe he made popcorn in the middle of the night! Sounds like something my little guy would do.
I can't wait to read your Oh No He Didn't post! The last one you did totally cracked me up. I am still laughing at the Red Rocket thing!
August 10, 2010 at 7:34 am
Must be a boy thing with not wearing clothes. My son has been wearing his whitey tighty's almost everyday lately, I guess sometimes is ok because its been a hot summer! have a great tuesday!
August 10, 2010 at 7:40 am
Bridal shower already? Wow that came up quick! Just think in no time your little brother will be a hubby
I got to hear about your husbands new game…. I can only imagine…
How did you break your phone again??!!?
August 10, 2010 at 7:56 am
Hey Shell! I've missed you! 🙂
You've got to get a break before school starts. Talk hubs into giving you an afternoon or something alone. Whenever I feel like I need break, I usually do!
My 5 yr. old is discovering there's more than underwear this morning. He's not too happy about it either, especially b/c we aren't actually leaving the house. He doesn't get it. LOL
August 10, 2010 at 8:13 am
Wow, I remember those days when all my boys would do is wear the same pair of shorts to sleep in and then get up and leave the house to go "play". I was such a bad mom LOL
August 10, 2010 at 8:24 am
and what happened to said Blackberry this time?
August 10, 2010 at 9:03 am
The BB again??? What the heck? LOL

August 10, 2010 at 9:06 am
Love that he made popcorn in the middle of the night! Sounds just like one of my boys. I can just hear "But, I was hungry Mom!" (:
August 10, 2010 at 9:07 am
I always have trouble with getting the tone of emails, except its usually the tone in the emails that I have written that is misconstrued! It is hard to tell, though!
Sorry about your BB. Husband is trying hard to get his company to upgrade his because he's havin trouble too.
By the way, not sure where your bro/sil are registered, but I just scored a major deal for my brother's wedding gift at Macys. I'm talking 'buy-one-get-one-free place setting + free shipping'
August 10, 2010 at 9:13 am
your poor electronics!and btw we may have written the same post…weird
August 10, 2010 at 9:23 am
I'm with Ian, order something for her online! 🙂
August 10, 2010 at 9:43 am
It seems like a lot of things are breaking at my house too! I will say I think I would be lost if my phone broke!!
I would love to hear more of the story about your son making popcorn in the middle of the night. I bet it is a good one:)

It took me a while to realize the PINT was an acronym… It's early.

August 10, 2010 at 9:56 am
Too funny! It reminds me…I gotta go buy that wedding present. :o) Btw, I swear sometimes that technology has it out for me. LOL
August 10, 2010 at 10:04 am
The sarcasm thing- I am horrible with that! Not everyone gets my sense of humor and I've gotten myself into trouble more times than I can count by saying something I thought was witty and offending people.
Heather's In The Land Of Crazy says
August 10, 2010 at 10:41 am
I can't wait to her what hubby did! Don't forget to buy future SIL a present 🙂
August 10, 2010 at 10:50 am
My 13yo still wants to run around in boxers. What is it with boys and no clothes? Sarcasm is the ruination of lots of things, but most things are just funny because of it.
August 10, 2010 at 10:55 am
I think sometimes I can short out a whole city with the energy I carry around bc I am always breaking the registers, staplers and computers at work. Never fear you are not alone.
August 10, 2010 at 10:58 am
I can't wait to hear about the oh no he didn't!
Babes Mami says
August 10, 2010 at 11:00 am
I'm behind on my contest entries!
You are awesome, it's the technology with the issues!
August 10, 2010 at 11:04 am
I can't wait to see what the Oh no he didn't post is about! Amen to summer going by too fast. I CAN'T believe school is about to start!
August 10, 2010 at 11:07 am
haha, wait you have to put on underwear before clothes!????
I can't believe your phone is now challenged….seriously girl!
Summer just flew by way to fast!!!!
Messy Mommy says
August 10, 2010 at 11:16 am
Can't wait to read the hubby story
August 10, 2010 at 11:32 am
Love the popcorn making story. 🙂
August 10, 2010 at 11:38 am
Summer has indeed flown by. How fast did you jump out of bed when you heard that popcorn?
August 10, 2010 at 11:56 am
go on, write the post 🙂
August 10, 2010 at 11:57 am
My two started school yesterday, and they are absolutely hating having to actually wear a full outfit! Goofy kids.
Well, if your BB is currently challenged, at least you have your laptop now, right? lol
August 10, 2010 at 12:00 pm
My girls definitely prefer walking around in tops and undies/diapers. They don't see the point in shorts!
August 10, 2010 at 12:06 pm
Ugh! school is almost here. I'll have to relay to my son that getting dressed actually means getting dressed, not throughing a fit next to your folded clothes on the floor because I asked you to get dress!
August 10, 2010 at 12:10 pm
Now the blackberry? Oh man girl, that sucks.LOL at Bear making popcorn in the middle of the night. That's too funny.Can't wait to hear about dh's game. 🙂
August 10, 2010 at 12:29 pm
Your Blackberry again! I'm sorry. I hope it can be fixed.
I can get my son to put shorts on, but a shirt is like pulling teeth. Getting dressed for school will be interesting!
I'm almost afraid to hear about this new game!
That One Mom says
August 10, 2010 at 12:36 pm
Hope a new charger is in your near future.
August 10, 2010 at 1:04 pm
I'm so mad at technology right now.
I have a slow, crappy phone, a slow, crappy computer and I'm at work, screaming four-letter words at a piece of crap scanner that refuses to go more than 3 pages before it jams.
Damn you, technology! DAMN YOU!
August 10, 2010 at 1:05 pm
You should get an iPhone! 😉 I didn't have much trouble with my blackberry but then…I didn't have it all that long! As for the popcorn making…that is funny stuff!!!
We live in a Zoo! says
August 10, 2010 at 1:44 pm
Lol!For my three year old it's "Putting on clothes" means more than just a bathing suit.
It's like celebs dying in three's… that's how my electronics go down. It's never just one isolated problem. :/
August 10, 2010 at 2:05 pm
I have the problem of being too sarcastic and not having it come across correctly in emails, especially with people who don't know me.
Frugal Vicki says
August 10, 2010 at 2:12 pm
Did Bear just wake up hungry for some popcorn or something? how funny
August 10, 2010 at 2:41 pm
Ditto on the where the heck did summer go?! And emails can be tough to read tone in…boy has there been more than one drama caused by misread emails! I hope you do get a break from the business that is this time of year!
Aging Mommy says
August 10, 2010 at 3:15 pm
Making popcorn in the middle of the night? Oh my goodness! I hope it was good and worth the middle of the night wake-up call 🙂
August 10, 2010 at 3:21 pm
Seriously, where has the summer gone? I can't believe we're almost midway through August! Your boys sound adorable 🙂
August 10, 2010 at 3:23 pm
lol glad im not the only one that has issues making her kid wear more than just underwear LOL!
August 10, 2010 at 3:35 pm
I wouldn't drive for that shower either. It's not practical, but yeah, ya gotta get hustling on the gift!
Jenn @ South of Sheridan says
August 10, 2010 at 3:38 pm
If she registered online, you could probably purchase and have it shipped directly to her, which would make life so much easier.
Popcorn in the middle of the night, what a strange craving! lol
August 10, 2010 at 3:58 pm
What is the game?
Was it me that made fun of you? My sarcasm constantly comes across wrong…I think…WTF do I know???
August 10, 2010 at 4:00 pm
You have the best post it notes!
August 10, 2010 at 4:34 pm
What is it with you and electronics? You aren't suppose to drop them in the toilet, they don't like water. 😉
August 10, 2010 at 5:00 pm
There should be a sarcasm font so we would know if people are being sarcastic or not.
And yes please tell on your husband soon, sounds like it is a good one.
August 10, 2010 at 5:12 pm
Poor Phone! 🙁
August 10, 2010 at 5:17 pm
He made popcorn in the middle of the night! How funny!!
i HATE IT WHEN YOU CAN'T TELL IF PEOPLE ARE BEING SMART OR NOT IN TEXTS AND COMMENTS AND ALL.
oooops! I was not yelling…my finger got happy I guess.
August 10, 2010 at 6:34 pm
Yes, Hannah has to get ready to get dressed in more than a bathing suit pretty soon too… won't be easy!
So missed you this weekend…
August 10, 2010 at 6:40 pm
It's not the clothing part I'm worried about when my kid starts school. It's training him to actually wear underwear with the clothing. 😉
August 10, 2010 at 7:23 pm
Kyle gets up in the middle of the night to pound orange juice. I guess I should be grateful that's all he does. 🙂
Awww….I loved those hang-around-in-your-underwear days! So sweet.
Trying to dig out from under a couple hundred emails…hope to catch up with yours soon!
August 10, 2010 at 7:41 pm
Bwhaha Popcorn in the middle of the night! I think that is a bit brilliant:) Then he doesn't have to share?
August 10, 2010 at 7:43 pm
ah yes the clothing optional days of summer! Champ came home from work yesterday to find me in a sports bra and pj shorts and Bear in… nothing. It was so hot though- what's a girl to do?!
August 10, 2010 at 8:29 pm
We are already on our second week of school, and getting my son out the door in anything but a diaper has been a real challenge! Good Luck – so hard to get back in the swing of things.
August 10, 2010 at 9:10 pm
Yeah, I stopped putting clothes on Emma. She jsut hangs out with her onesie one. 😀 Me too!
August 10, 2010 at 9:45 pm
Is it called techno challenged? You and the BB again, poor girl. What did you do to it this time? Sounds like dh needs to get you a new phone. I can't wait to hear what he did, or didn't do! lol!
August 10, 2010 at 9:56 pm
you did NOT break another blackberry. girlfriend what is wrong with you?! heh.go shopping.
August 10, 2010 at 10:16 pm
I have a love hate relationship with electronics!! And I'm pretty sure that people are always making fun of me!!Hope you have a fantastic week!!!
August 10, 2010 at 10:17 pm
Love these post it notes! Now I am intrigued… will ther BE an "oh no he didn't" post??? Trying to guess what he DIDN'T do???111xx

Lil Mootz is toying with the no clothes phase. He'll wake up without a nap and take off his shirt. One times in the middle of the living room he ripped off his diaper. Hubs and I were like, um that's not gonna work for us.

Cute notes! Just peeking in to say hey as I posted my PYHO tonight. I'll link up tomorrow!

August 12, 2010 at 7:48 am
getting dressed for my son will mean wearing something other than just underwear. It kind of bugs me that he is in this stage of sleeping in just his underwear…but yet it is only so long when they have no thought about their bodies etc.
I would have loved to have some popcorn popped for me in the middle of hte night.

These were very good notes! Hope you got that gift sent. Making popcorn in the middle of the night is so funny.
