    I did the unthinkable and took my 2 year old grocery shopping with me. You would think that in my parenting life I would have learnt that shopping with kids is NEVER a good idea, it always ends in tears (either mine or hers).

    Just thought I would share the joys of one of our most recent shopping expeditions…..

    Having loaded the trolley full I then proceeded to line up at the checkout. I am about to put the first item onto the conveyor belt when my 2 year old starts yelling ‘mummy, I want farties, farties mummy’.

    I try to hush her and made a mental note in my head not to feed her baked beans before shopping again.

    Hushing however dosn’t work, the saga continues with more shouting about wanting farties. So I figure that she actually may need to do a poo not a fart so move my trolley away from the line up and make a mad dash to the toilet with her.

    Plonking her onto the toilet and telling her that she can do ‘farts’ now results in a terrible tantrum and her insisting that she dosn’t need to go to the toilet. I give up and head back into the shop to finish the grocery shopping.

    Back in line again unloading the groceries on the conveyor belt, my daughter then makes a grab for the lollies which are conveniently placed next to the register. With her hand on the prize she looks up at me with a packet of SMARTIES and says ‘Mummy I have farties please’!!!!

    Geez, this is a hard one… thanks for the giveaway – let me think!

    One day my son was calling out to his “poppy” but instead called him “floppy”… very funny at the time! I am sure there are plenty more but that’s the only one I can think of at the top of my head….

    Ohhh, I hope I win!


  • 3. Christine  |  May 27, 2009 at 12:40 pm

    let me start with: i am not a regular church goer. so i decided to take my daughter to church with her grandparents about 2 months ago. we are all sitting there so nicely and things are going so well. she is watching a little boy play a few pews up from us and all of a sudden she starts screaming “f**k, f**k, f**k, f**k, f**k, f**k!” this was over and over. turns out the little boy had a toy truck he was playing with. i don’t think we will be invited back any time soon, do you?

  • 4. tara  |  May 27, 2009 at 12:55 pm

    too hard in english:-((

    I would love to play with you…

    a giveaway on my blog too;o)

  • 5. tasha  |  May 27, 2009 at 1:58 pm

    hhmmmmm I took my 3 little kiddies out shopping one day and as we were passing by a toy shop my son who was about 2ish yelled out “pig mummy pig!!” Just at that exact moment a policeman was walking towards us!!! As you hopefully know “pig”is the derogatort term for a police,man!!!! Needless to say I very embarrassedly stammered out “he he he meant that pig” and pointed to the toy that son had seen!!!! I am sure to this day he didn’t believe me……

  • 6. Melissa Ann  |  May 27, 2009 at 4:37 pm

    This isn’t really funny, but rather sort of sweet. I didn’t quite know how to tell my best friend that I was expecting, so I had her 2 1/2 year old do the telling. I wasn’t sure little Daylin even understood the request, but she marched right up to mommy and announced “Aunt M’s baby!” while pointing at my tummy. Mommy thought Daylin was talking about her Aunt Amy’s baby (I’m Auntie M), but finally Daylin got the point across. 😀

    Oh another funny one was my two year old niece Mariana who for awhile intentionally called me Der (Uncle Derek) and my husband Lissa (Aunt Melissa).

    Please can I win? This set is adorable and with twin girls on the way I’m sure it’ll receive lots of use…

  • 7. Erynn  |  May 27, 2009 at 6:37 pm

    I was watching TMZ last night when my 7year old daughter walked in during a story on a celebrity with a new “Tramp Stamp”. My daughter asked, what is a “Trams Stam”? Trying to deflect her from the true meaning, my reply was, “A Trans Am is a type of car”. Then I quickly changed the channel.

  • 8. glorygirl  |  May 27, 2009 at 6:38 pm

    Christine told the same story, only mine is a bit different.. we weren’t at church,we were out to dinner with a few friends of mine. I have a 22 month old..but at the time she was like 19-20 months…

    we went to a pizza parlor we’ve never been to before, in a poshier area of Palo Alto (where our friends live)… as we sit down, Taylor starts yelling out “F**K!!! F**K!!” to everyone’s surprise, and sort of embarrasement for me, started to laugh, and kind of brush it off… during the whole time we were there, she would start yelling it out every so often, and then stop.. it was really strange.

    well, we get up to leave, and by the door, (or right above it) there was a printed andy warhol style picture of a yellow TRUCK!! LMAO. this whole time, we’re thinking she’s swearing… it was kinda funny…

    needless to say, we went back just a few weeks ago, and she can NOW (finally!) pronouce the word Truck with a “T”… LOL. so funny.

    cute giveaway, I almost forgot why I was commenting cause I was caught up in reliving that memory!! LOL.

    the mommy farts story was cute!! hehe.


  • 9. Kleinzonnetje  |  May 27, 2009 at 8:06 pm

    Well, it’s not really a mispronunciation, but my children are all Dutch/English bilingual and the name of my 3 year old’s teddy bear has settled at ‘beer’ (Dutch for bear). It has caused some strange looks and comments when she shouts at the top of her voice ” where’s the beer?”

  • 10. Mary  |  May 27, 2009 at 10:17 pm

    When we were little, my mom says my sister and I (twins!)pronounced freckles as “fuckles.” Nice, huh?

  • 11. Lisa  |  May 27, 2009 at 10:27 pm

    I was babysitting my little cousin. We went to the playground, where she threw a bit of a tantrum when I told her that she couldn’t have her snack of “peanuts” until we got home (because it is a school area & they have rules for allergy reasons). She had a bit of a lisp at the time, so her “peanuts” sounded like another word that a 5 year old shouldn’t be saying!


  • 12. Stacey  |  May 27, 2009 at 10:40 pm

    My little one wanted to go swimming and came out of her room with bathing suit in hand saying “Baby Soup!”

    My son just learned about clocks (he is 21 months old) and he points to them wherever we go saying “clock!” or “big clock!” one problem: he doesn’t pronounce the “L” in clock… and he yells it in stores, at the neighbors, in the library!!!

    I hope he learns the “L” part soon 🙂

  • 15. bowlby  |  May 28, 2009 at 1:59 am

    This is a lovely giveaway! My friend is about to have a baby girl, and she’d love this.

    This weekend I was out to eat with my husband and 22-month-old son. This isn’t a mispronunciation, but funny still. He kept saying (loudly, of course), “poo poo, Mama!” “Poo poo, Dada!” I have no idea why! I swear he didn’t have a dirty diaper…

  • 16. Valerie  |  May 28, 2009 at 3:00 am

    Not exactly a mispronunciation, but here goes.

    I’m taking French classes, and just before Christmas we were talking about our holiday plans and what the season means to us. The French word for born is ne (nay) and the word birth is naissance. So I was talking about the birth of Christ, but I used the word ne instead of naissance. No biggie, except the French word nez (also pronounced nay) means nose. So basically I waxed poetic about Christ’s nose.

    My French teacher couldn’t help himself, he laughed and laughed and laughed. Won’t be making that mistake again 🙂

  • 17. Kristin  |  May 28, 2009 at 5:44 am

    My young cousin was in the elevator with her parents on the way to see her great grandmother in the hospital. She was wearing an Old Navy tshirt. An older woman entered the elevator and began to talk to her a little, and said “Oh, my dear, are you in the old navy?”

    My cousin, mishearing the question, responded, “Oh, no, I’m not an old lady…but we’re going to see one right now!”

  • 18. Deb  |  May 28, 2009 at 5:49 am

    Cute giveaway! I’m hoping my sister has a girl so that if I win, this can go to her. My kids are great sources of embarrassing mispronunciations. My youngest struggles to say the letter “s” and unfortunately calls stickers “dickies”. Very awkward when one is in public!

  • 19. djaj  |  May 28, 2009 at 12:19 pm

    Last week, we went to buy shoes for my daughters. The third one was in the pushchair.
    Her 2 sisters ran everywhere trough the shop, and took almost each exposed shoe… We finally found the shoes, paied and went away, thanking the staff for their patience.
    I came back 5 minutes later to give them back a shoe : the little one in the pushchair managed to steal one, and it looked like the label was tasty :o/

  • 20. craftytammie  |  May 28, 2009 at 1:38 pm

    Just yesterday my daughter came up to me and said she needed to find her armpits and her kneepits! I was laughing so hard and finally figured out she wanted her armdPADs and kneePADs. Kids are so funny.

  • 21. Jennifer B  |  May 28, 2009 at 2:41 pm

    when my son was 2ish, we read a book about animals eating people food. so for the next few weeks, we heard all about the “dino-r ate am-brrrrr-grrrrr” (dinosaur ate the hamburger)

  • 22. seedless grape  |  May 28, 2009 at 3:13 pm

    Those booties are so cute!

    I was in DC over Memorial Day weekend and saw some friends and their three-year-old girl. Her mother, trying to encourage her to talk to us, asked her to tell us what they had done that day. “We went to see the shoulders,” she said. “The shoulders?” I asked. “And we brought them flowers,” she insisted. “We brought flowers to the shoulders.”

    Translated? They went to Arlington Cemetery and brought flowers to the soldiers.

  • 23. Jenny  |  May 28, 2009 at 4:53 pm

    I think I’m going to win!

  • 24. Gretchen Ree  |  May 28, 2009 at 5:16 pm

    Well, my littlest for a very long time could not pronounce the word “truck”, and replaced the tr with, of course, an “f” sound. It would be quite embarrassing in many places, but especially shopping and seeing toys, because of course she would shout for her favorite, the truck! Ugh. Also, my best friend’s husband thought it was the most hilarious thing ever, and has forever immortalized her mispronunciation in the video of us meeting their new baby son for the first time 🙂

  • 25. wendy  |  May 28, 2009 at 5:19 pm

    When I was a kid, my ballet instructor was a hefty lady named Miss Patty. My mother, being a sizeist, called her “Miss All-Beef Patty”. One day, in front of my mother and Miss Patty, I said, “Guess what, my mom calls you?” and proceeded to tell her. Served my mom right!

  • 26. B  |  May 28, 2009 at 5:48 pm

    A friend of mine has a farm where they have some animals. When they first moved there a couple of years ago she and her little guy (who was about three if I remember) where showing me around. They came to the one part of the barn and he told he this is where he saw the “shit”. My friend and I both had WIDE eyes and she calm asked him again. He said, “remember the shit? It licked my hand.” Though they didn’t have SHEEP themselves the man who they bought the place from had.

  • 27. AJ  |  May 28, 2009 at 6:31 pm

    Those are so cute!

  • 28. mc  |  May 28, 2009 at 6:40 pm

    So my wife used to be a nanny of 2 boys. She was with them for almost 3 years. When the oldest was around 3 he was really into Thomas and trains in general. His favorite Thomas character was Percy. He had all of the trains and about a mile worth of track and one day he couldn’t find the Percy train. Mind you, this is a 3 year old with a bit of a lisp He kept asking my wife and his mom “Where is my Percy? Where is my Percy?” Not good.

    His mom and my wife got a good giggle out of it.

    I like giveaways! My daughter would look adorable (even more so than she already is) in this outfit.

  • 29. Kristen Swing  |  May 28, 2009 at 7:17 pm

    When my husband was little he was really into wresting. He was about 3 years old and he and his Mom stopped to talk to a woman with a new baby. When he saw the baby he said: “Look Mom, it’s George the Animal!” I guess it’s funnier when my Mother in law tells the story…

  • 30. Kime'  |  May 28, 2009 at 9:11 pm

    I will have to say my step son was practicing for his homeschool kindergarten graduation. We held up the word drink for him to sound out and blend together. Well he goes dr- in-k and then says drank! LOL We all just died b/c he is a red neck. Got a really bad southern accent. So, just image it with that. Oh my of course we couldn’t do that word again for the graduation b/c he would never done it the same.

  • 31. Jayne  |  May 28, 2009 at 10:01 pm

    All I can think of was the other day when my 4 year old said: “My voice isn’t working, Mommy!” Turns out she had water in her ear.

  • 32. jodie  |  May 28, 2009 at 10:55 pm

    My son was a bit speech delayed, and at 3 he is now to the point where I can understand most of what he is saying, but for a long time it was touch-and-go. One of the funniest things, though was his word for balloons: Boobs. And of course, we figured that out after we had brought home two balloons for his 2nd birthday party. “TWO BOOBS! TWO BOOBS!” And he was so happy. Hahaha!

  • 33. kelli  |  May 28, 2009 at 11:07 pm

    My middle son dropped his utensil at a restaurant and shouted “F**k” at the top of his lungs until we rescued his FORK. You can see the problem, right?

  • 34. bylulu  |  May 29, 2009 at 12:15 am

    After a trip to grandma’s where there are several Conch shells my daughter decides to tell my husband about all Co*k she saw at grandma’s house. Now we joke about the things my mom is teaching her!

  • 35. ru  |  May 29, 2009 at 12:35 am

    i had left my partner and son at my ILs for a week in march. when i finally joined them on the weekend, i asked my 2-year-old son what he had been doing all week. he said that he had played a lot. i asked him what he had played. he grabbed his tower power drill and said “i have been screwing opa!”

  • 36. Susie  |  May 29, 2009 at 1:14 am

    OK, so it’s a mis-use of a word, by my dear father. We were in Target in the baby section, to pick up diapers for my new daughter. He was a few rows over by the bouncy chairs etc., and all of a sudden I hear my dad, shouting across the aisles “Susie!! They have your vibrator here!!” Seriously, I about died. Obviously he meant the vibrating bouncer chair for infants. Oh, my, gosh. So now, whenever my daughter, who is now 4 years old and tends to drop her end consonants and thus come up with some pretty embarrassing variations (as is not saying the “s” in horse) – it doesn’t seem so bad in comparison…

    Great giveaway and beautiful work! ❤

  • 37. ning fathia  |  May 29, 2009 at 3:04 am

    I don’t know if this was a mis-pronunciation by the kid or the mother has some serious hearing problem but this story was told by my sister in law about her friend…

    “Mommy, what’s a eunuch?”
    The mommy tried as hard as she could to explain that men used to be castrated due to old tradition and how it happened in the Chinese royals, and so on, a little confused because one question can lead to another, like what’s “castrated”?
    and then the kid said, “Why do the cops in TV say ‘Calling all eunuchs, calling all eunuchs through a small phone?”

  • 38. Suzanne  |  May 29, 2009 at 4:22 am

    Picture it: A pretty young mother with 3 children ages 4, 2, and a few months. She is driving cross country alone with the 3 kiddos. She pulls into a gas station where a fire truck and some very handsome firemen were currently resting. She manages to get the 3 kiddos out of the car and starts them toward the store’s door when the 4 year old curly blond girl yells at the top of her lungs, “Mama, look at the fire *uck!”. The young woman is horrified!
    It was the best story I could think of. It is not a child of mine but was me many moons ago.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  • 39. Sharon  |  May 29, 2009 at 7:03 am

    My son can’t say fire truck. unfortunately he says something a little worse…

  • 40. Julianne  |  May 29, 2009 at 2:01 pm

    I love the set of items!!

    My nephew couldn’t pronounce truck. I came out f*ck!!

    One day we’re walking around the neighborhood and a dump truck goes by and he says ‘look it’s a dumb f*ck’ the person walking across the street seemed to have taken great offense to this since he thought my nephew was talking about him! I couldn’t even stop laughing to explain to the guy. He probably still hates me!!

  • 41. Jules  |  May 29, 2009 at 3:09 pm

    What a beautiful set. I have a brand new little niece that this would be perfect for!

    My older niece just turned 15. When she was younger she had speech problems and tended to run words together. She always told people that she wanted Auntie Julesyeep. It took a while before we understood that she wanted a ride in “Auntie Jules’ Jeep!”. I had personalized plates made for the Jeep – JLZ YEEP in honor of my little sweetpea!

    Thank you for entering me in your drawing.

  • 42. Leigh  |  May 29, 2009 at 4:11 pm

    This isn’t from my child, but it’s so funny I had to share. I hope it doesn’t offend anyone! An online friend’s 3yo started calling his mommy “B*tch!” She stayed calm, tried to figure out what he might be saying or where he could possibly have picked it up. All morning it was, “You’re my b*tch! Can I have a drink, B*tch?” etc. Finally after asking him again why he was calling her that, he said, “Because I was sitting on your lap and you are my BENCH!” 😀

  • 43. debra  |  May 29, 2009 at 4:21 pm

    I was stamping some cards using a cloud stamp. I kept saying “fluffy clouds” but my 3 year old said f****g clouds……for days and days…..

  • 44. Marsha  |  May 29, 2009 at 6:53 pm

    I am a preschool teacher and must share the story of one of my favorite little boys, Dominick. I teach an at risk program so I am never sure what will come out of the mouths of babes or what they have been exposed to. Anyway, Dominick was notoriously slow to move . . . every day I would be poking and prodding him to hurry up to make the bus. One day he was particularly slow, he had to run to the bathroom at the last minute and we were in jeapordy of missing the bus. When he finally emerged from the bathroom, I said, ‘Dom, buddy, you have to be quicker.’ He simply looked at me and said, ‘Mrs. McGuire, I had a big TRAP.’ A what? It took me a second but I got it. He had a big CRAP.

  • 45. Tiffany  |  May 29, 2009 at 8:51 pm

    For months my son had been saying something that sounded like “Husha” and my husband and I just referred to it as his magic word. One afternoon, we were at the craft store and I was chattering away to my son as he was riding in the cart (I should mention that I have a tendancy to ramble and talk a lot) and he said, “Husha, husha! Husha, mama!” I just kept talking, but as I got the end of the aisle, I heard two women walking into the next aisle say, “Can you believe he tells his mother to shut up?!?!” ***WHAT???****I turned to my son and asked if he was telling me to shut up and he just grinned from ear to ear like, you finally got it, lady!

  • 46. Shelly  |  May 30, 2009 at 12:45 am

    I can’t think of a good mispronunciation story (and my LO is only 2 mo old), so I’ll share another funny kid story, even if I don’t qualify for the drawing.

    My husband and I were in charge of singing time with the toddlers at church and we started up a round of “If You’re Happy and You Know It,” with the instruction being to jump up and down. One child piped up and said, “I can’t jump, because if I do, I’ll go poo poo and I don’t want to go poo poo right now.”

  • 48. Sarah  |  May 30, 2009 at 3:11 am

    My daughter used to love the book fox in socks, and would always ask us to read it to her. Being a 2 year old though she could never quite say it right she always asked for fu%%in’ sucks!

  • 49. Tina Mackey  |  May 30, 2009 at 4:11 am

    Ok, I’m usually not crass like this, but this is the story that popped into my mind. At the time this happened, my son (for some reason) would use an “f” in place of the “t” in a word. So, we pulled up to a friends house and he saw a toy truck sitting on the front lawn and he just started screaming “truck, truck, truck” as loud as he could. But, of course he wasn’t pronouncing it quite right. Not only was I horrified, but I couldn’t get him to stop saying it. Ah, the adventures of motherhood 😉

  • 50. CaLynn  |  May 30, 2009 at 4:59 am

    Well my story isnt about a mis-pronunciation, but in fact the opposite (if that rules me out, thats quite ok:)

    When i was wee little, we had just moved I believe (my memory is a little vague on that part). I was hanging out with my mom in her room while she read a magazine. I saw a poster wedged between the dresser and the wall so while she was busy i pulled it out a bit.

    It was a black and white poster of some victorian looking people in the foreground, and a train in the background on a bridge. Only, the bridge ended, so the train had started to fall into the water.

    Along the bottom were some letters that i was pronouncing out loud, but to myself so my mom didnt really hear me.

    O oh s oh ssshh oh shh oh shi i oh sh i tah

    Then i finally figured it out and yelled: OH SH*T!!

    I yelled it really loudly actually because I was incredibly happy that i figured it out, much to my moms dismay. 🙂

  • 51. mab  |  May 30, 2009 at 6:37 am

    It happened today. We were in Target walking by the men’s underwear section.The place was full of packages of undies with undie-clad men on them. My 2 year old pointed and hollered “BALLS!” several times. Then, I looked waaaaay down the aisle to the toy section where there was a display of playground balls.

    I was relieved that she didn’t mean what I thought she meant.

    Great giveaway! Thanks for the chance to enter!

  • 52. Emily  |  May 30, 2009 at 5:53 pm

    When my sister was little, she pronounced “mozzarella” “mozzahella”. For some reason my Dad got an absolute kick out of this, and he’d show her off to family AND RANDOM STRANGERS. “Hey Katie, what kind of cheese is on a pizza?” “Mozzahella!” And then he’d die laughing. Oh my…

  • 53. Bethany  |  May 30, 2009 at 10:18 pm

    Well, we were out at Wal-Mart and every person that went by my sons would wish them a “Happy Birthday!!” I know I have other stories, but well I am tired. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  • 54. Carrie P.  |  May 30, 2009 at 11:15 pm

    Those are the cutest little baby things. When my son was learning to talk he could not say grandma so his name for his grandma became “dum-dum” She thought we told him to call her that. She was a little insulted but it didn’t last long and he did learn to say grandma.

  • 55. Beth Moore  |  May 31, 2009 at 3:09 am

    My 3 year old and 2 year old love to say “poop” and laugh. They really like to do it in public. They will point to something and yell poop and then just crack up. It’s a little embarrasing.

  • 56. Jasmine  |  May 31, 2009 at 5:59 am

    when I’d change my son’s nappy and say ,”now, lets get the pilcher.” He’d try to repeat what I’d said but it’s come out ” bugger.”

    More recently I’ve heard him walk about the house saying “booby, booby booby.” And that’s not something we taught him for sure!
    He’s so sweet.

    This giveaway is a lovely idea. Thanks for participating in it!

  • 57. Rachelle  |  May 31, 2009 at 8:54 am

    My co-worker’s four-year-old daughter was walking around work on Thursday licking a Dum-Dum. Her mom’s boss came up to her and said “Hi Emily, are you eating a Dum Dum?”

    Emily yelled at the top her lungs, “I’m not a dum dum!”

  • 58. Lil' Bit Sassy  |  May 31, 2009 at 1:34 pm

    This isn’t funny per se but cute. I had a great niece named Isabella and my two year old great niece (cousins) would call her “Cinderella” instead of Isabella. I just thought it was so adorable. Especially since she just loved that baby!

  • 59. Danielle  |  May 31, 2009 at 5:44 pm

    Great giveaway! 🙂

    I use rubbing alcohol to clean a lot around the house (light switches, knobs, ect). Anyway, I was shopping one day with my little one and she began to yell “We need alcohol mommy” over and over… It just doesn’t come out right when a 2 yr old says it. 🙂
    I received lots of glances and by the time I left I wanted some alcohol alright! lol 🙂

    Oh… 1 more… I was filling in at my parents shop one afternoon with my daughter. A customer came in and my daughter was chatting away with her… next thing I know she looks at me and says, “mommy why is her tummy so big?” OH MY GOODNESS… I wanted to be invisible.

    Ok… the list could go on and on… everyday she says something funny or embarrassing!

    What a cute gift set!!

    I used to babysit for a toddler….when he was just learning to talk, he used to say “kepshit” for ketchup!! It made me laugh so hard!!

    When I was in 7th grade, my algebra teacher’s name was Mr. Pecze (pronounced “Pexy) but I thought his name started with an “S” (you can see where this is going…)

    So during the first week of school at the tender age of 12, I was raising my hand to get help with a math problem and he didn’t seem to see me. Finally, I called his name, “Mr. Secze!”

    I could see my best friend’s jaw hit the table when she heard that come out of my mouth and for the next two years, I didn’t live down the fact that I called our new, young teacher “Mr. Sexy!”

    I have a 6 month old, but this weekend I took a road trip to visit my sweet friend Natalie. She shared this story about her sister-in-laws kids.

    She took them to Fazoli’s and while she was in line they were flexing their muscles. Together they ran over in front of the counter and one of them yelled “Hey Mom! Look at our balls!” while they continued to flex their biceps.

    That’s what you get though when you refer to your kids’ biceps as “muscle balls”.

    I said my fair share of gems when I was a kid, including asking my grandma why she had so many cracks in her face (while at a beauty parlor, of course) and once in the grocery store line “my mom’s constipated”.

    Wow, it’s hard to pick just one, so I’ll throw out a few…
    My 6 year old went with my husband to vote during the presidential election. He asked several questions that my husband answered.
    When he asked who the candidates were, my husband told him they were John McCain and Barrack Obama.
    To which my son replied in a very loud, surprised voice…
    “Bayrock, Alabama?!”

    The other day while bowling, I got a split and he said
    “Aw, mom, you got the splitz!”

    And I know this has nothing to do with a mispronunciation, but it made me fall over laughing, so I have to share…
    One night after my kids were in bed and my oldest was already asleep, I heard my 4 year old talking and listened in from the next room…
    “Please, Jesus, can I have a snack? I want one from my mom and dad.”
    He went on to tell Jesus specifically what he wanted, but I couldn’t make it all out. 🙂

    Anyway, sorry if I wrote too much, but I hope I at least made you laugh. 🙂
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I took my lo to the zoo and we were trying to have her say all of the animal names. When we got to the foxes we told her to say fox and out popped F$%&. The people around us laughed so hard that she just thought it was awesome and walked around the zoo the rest of the day shouting f$%&, f&*% over and over again. It was really cute. Eventhough I was beat red the whole day.

About Me:

I'm a 20-something working mother of a 9 yr old step-son, a 4 year old daughter, and a surrogate mother to twins born in Feb. '09. I love sewing gifts and clothing in my free time, and especially love sewing baby items. I am clumsy to a fault, a little too sarcastic at times, I put my all into everything I do 110% of the time... which isn't always the best thing! I try to be the best wife, mother, friend, sister, & daughter I can be on a daily basis.
