Developments at our house, Vol. 16

Here are some of the latest developments around here:

1. After 5 years of reading both the classic original stories and the cartoony Disney version of Winnie-the-Pooh, my son D- finally realized that the lead character's name is "poo".*

2. I was made aware that my current roommates are so tiny I can unknowingly smuggle one of their socks in my freshly-laundered underpants for at least several hours before noticing it.

3. It says a lot about my currently uncertain status in life that I get e-mails opening with lines like, "Congratulations, you're a 2009 Mother of the Year!" and including videos like this.

I think I need to go slather myself with motor oil and kill something that only seems not defenseless.

is that a sock in your pants or are you just...oh, nevermind. I can't be that clever and witty before coffee.

Socks in underwear, poo and gender bending. What an interesting life you lead.

My sister sent me that video! I thought I was mother of the year!

Just exactly how uncertain is your "status"? Should we be expecting a status change operation?

This reminds me of the Dilbert comic strip where he goes bungee jumping to "expose himself to avoidable danger" because "that's the manly thing to do".

Ever considered bungee jumping?

The light goes on for Winnie the Pooh. What other wonders will he realize next?

One time I went ALL DAY with a baby sock in my bra. I'm not sure what that says about me.

i had a dryer sheet in my pants once. it bothered me enough that i finally pulled them down to see what it was. don't worry...i went to the ladies room before pulling my pants down. fun times.

Congratulations on your Mother of the Year award. Very impressive, and your tight-lippedness on the sex change is also laudable.

Hah! Sock smuggler.

All you have to do to restore your lost manhood is boost your son from level 1 - Winnie the Poo to level 10 - Mr. Hanky the Christmas Poo.

Then, my friend, your work as a father will be done.

I think the funniest line is the one about socks in your underpants! How have you been old friend?

I especially like the guy in the video with your name tattooed on his shoulder. You're inspiring me to wear a dress.

Ahhh... innocence lost. Now he knows the half naked (and not the good half) bear is named for waste.

I giggle every time Tyler picks up a blue ball and a red ball and I say "Tyler is holding his balls."

I'm such a child. Dig the new pictures on the banner, by the way.

How do we know that the sock was not just "strategically placed"??

Congrats on the award? I think.
