Monday Listicles

Here comes Monday.

I take it you had a great weekend, wore green, drank Guinness and avoided getting pinched. Glad you are back and ready to share your list.

Last week we talked about women and why we rock. It was lovely to read about ladies that inspire you, the reasons that you enjoy being a woman and the two lists about women that were written by man! I must confess I really enjoy reading all the comments you leave for each other too. You all are a funny lot!

This week is kid edition. List of ten reasons why being a child is great. Or why it is not. Up to you.

And for next listicle Terri get’s to chose what we will talk about. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find Terri’s little Corner and next week’s topic. For a few of you not sure if you met Terri, she is a published author, a funny blogger living it up in Vegas and a smart phone addict. Can’t wait to see what she comes up with!

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!


10 reasons my kid has it good

1. All he has to do really well is eat and sleep.

2. He is surrounded by people who love him.

3. He has the coolest dog that listens to him.

4. He has a democratic say in mostly everything.

5. If he whines hard enough he can drive me insane. A very powerful tool.

6. One is either witty or not. He is very, very witty.

7. He gets praised for zipping up his jacket and remembering to flush the toilet.

8. Bread with nutella counts as a a balanced meal.

9. His sleepovers are always girls.

10. He says he wants to be four forever. I take it he likes his life a lot.

      Got another one coming up next week πŸ˜‰ The girls called today to see if he wants to come over to play and he said he is busy… Think that’s his MO, playing hard to get.

      That is insane. Your kids are one in a million. There is nothing wrong with having a jar for yourself!

      I think we would excel. Not sure if our kids would do as well catering to us though, right?

    Those little feet in the socks are killing me. Adorable. Can I tell you how glad I am to meet someone else for whom “nutella sandwich” counts as nutrition? I tell myself that at least it’s a sandwich on whole-grain bread? (Can you see me clutching at straws?) … sheesh. Have missed listicles the last few weeks, so sorry (not that you’re pining away for me) but now I’m back and can’t wait to read all these great posts!

    I keep telling Mo she can’t grow up any more and she finds it hysterical. We’re on the cusp of four and it’s such an amazingly, brilliant age! Love the list, and nutella is acceptable for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

    not sure if I should let Little J know this, but if you whine loud enough your mom might also buy that marshmallow fluff stuff for your nutella and toast —- you got yourself a nice little smore sandwhich then! cheers.

    love the pic!

  6. Good morning. I’ve been reading these for a while now but have never actually done one. But after reading so many fun ones today I decided it was time. I couldn’t pass up this prompt. πŸ˜‰

  7. Tell him he can be 4 forever. We’re all okay with that. As long as he stays as cute as ever!

    If I had it that good I would want to be four forever, too. And i just had some nutella and peanut butter cracker sandwiches… a nice afternoon snack with some Chai tea.

    I think my niece and nephew are pretty lucky to live with their big dog, too! Like many others, I was convinced mostly by #8. Nutella is so scrumptious that I cannot even have it in the house. Little J is definitely living the good life with you!
