ABOUT ME

About me: I'm a 40-something mother to a pickle party of a family. My husband Chuck, our tween Junior, our 6-year-old Everett, our toddler Cam, and I live in a town in Connecticut I affectionately call Mulletville Lite (aka my childhood hometown). My friends call me Nutjob, and they're right. In my husband's spare time he dresses up as a Viking and chases ghosts (and I'm the nutjob?). I'm a freelance graphic designer and writer.

And yes, I did match Junior for this occasion

I have today off (from work and the blogosphere) and I'm dragging Junior to get his picture taken with a large fur-covered man who has bulging black eyes, antennae-like ears and sweaty felt gloves.

Can't imagine why children scream so...

If you want a piece of me, I guest posted over at A Reservation for Six. If not, pppppssssfffflt!

Now go dye those eggs!

My youngest is terrified of anything in a costume. And every male she meets. Kinda thinkin' that's a good thing!

I think it's probably a good thing that kids get scared of people in costume, like Missy say's. It kinda helps to establish the whole "don't talk to strangers" thing. Trouble with it is, parents get kids to talk to these strangers, and it confuses them. I never did do the picture thing with my kids. When they asked why, I told them, "because that would be talking to a stranger, and I don't want you doing that!"

As a rule I don't speak to anyone with bulging black eyes.

That sounds like me in the winter...all furry and bulging, that is.

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I just have to say that as I went back through several of your older posts, I laughed my butt off. You are one funny lady!

Hope Junior wasn't permanently scarred by the pictures with the bunny(man). A friend of mine showed me her nephew's picture with the Easter bunny. You could see the guys face through the mouth opening. Talk about creepy! I can imagine some kid asking his mommy if the Easter bunny ate someone. LOL

My dd quit sitting on the bunny after we ran into one who was an avid smoker...she figured out he wasn't the real one after that 'cuz bunnies just don't smoke.

Hope you have a wonderful day off. Everyone needs a break once in a while. Thanks so much for your awesome comment about EC. I'm so confused too. What to do? Have a great weekend.

Cool! I just read your guest post! What fun... now I've gotto conjure up a previous injury which occasionally flares up!

Jen said...

I seriously need more coffee. It took me far too long to figure our why you would purposely let some pervert sit with your kid. Of course we do this at Christmas too. Happy Easter!

I have found that most Easter Bunnies look kind of flea bitten. Not sure if it is the white fur or what, but they always look kind of dinghy. I hope Junior enjoyed his visit with the rabbit.

I'm in here hiding while my kids fight over the egg dye. Sigh. Don't have another.... Trust.
