HER: (exhibiting genuine interest) “Whatcha looking at, Mama?”
ME: (channeling a crappy mom by not turning away from the computer and dismissing the question) “Nothing.”
HER: (regurgitating my ‘mom words’ back to me) “It’s not nothing if there’s something on the screen, Mama. What is it?”
ME: (still attempting to preserve my dignity and change the subject) “Just a little contest Mama’s in.”
HER: (exhibiting more genuine interest that I don’t deserve) “A contest for what?”
ME: (giving in since she already knows her mom is a goofball who dons a ketchup costume twice a month in public anyway) “Oh, it’s just a contest to pick the Top 25 Funny Moms on a website called Circle of Moms.”
HER: (leaping up excitedly) “A contest?!!? Wait! I’ll be right back!”
I’m just a regular mom. And that means sometimes I want to pull my hair out and run screaming from the house when my kids are driving me nuts. And other times I wonder what on earth I did to deserve such amazing little people who are actually interested in me and who want to help me with my
half-baked, softheaded shenanigans intellectually stimulating projects.
Such was the case with Vivien last weekend when she heard about the Circle of Moms Top 25 Funny Moms contest.
Three hours later …
“I want you to win, Mama,” she said, handing me a stack of drawings she’d be working on in her room to help me in my quest to make you laugh.
Truth? Yes, they made me laugh. They also made me cry a little. That she’d give up a big chunk of her weekend to help out her old lady … well I don’t think I was that good a daughter when I was a kid. (Let’s see if my mom takes the bait when she reads this post.)
So anyway, without further ado … I give you the first of the ODNT, Jr. Vote for My Mom for Top 25 Funny Moms original creations. This one is entitled “Herve’s Black Seed Brownie Recipe.”
It centers on the ever-growing hamster in this household and his favorite delicacy. Which we recently learned leads to morbid obesity in rodents. (Yep. That’s a thing.)
But, ODNT, how do we vote for you?
IT’s EASY! And IN ONLY Three Steps!
- Click here.
- Scroll down to Old Dog New Tits. God willing, I’ll still be in the Top 25 when you do.
- Click “vote” next to Old Dog New Tits.
And it wouldn’t suck if you also voted for my friends, According to Mags and Hot Mess Mom while you’re there. They’re both funny ladies of whom I personally I am a big fan. You can actually vote for as many people as you like. Once every 24 hours. Until February 13. Per device. Or so they tell me. 🙂
Fine, ODNT. We’ll vote for you and your friends. EVERY BLASTED DAY until February 13. But what’s in it for us, fool?
As my way of saying thank you for taking a minute of your time each day … and having every person you’ve ever known do the same … I wanted to share a YouTube clip of my favorite dancing hill person, Jesco White.
She is pulling for her mom. What a kid. And her artwork is wonderful!
Thanks, Wy. I’m partial to it myself.
Been voting every day! Keeping my fingers crossed for you
Hey, J! Haven’t heard from you in a while. How are things? And thanks!
things are….things LOL….No prob! Just voted again!
What a sweetie! But on a serious note, Herve’s weight! Pehaps he needs to go on the ODNT Baby Food Diet? Summer will be here before you know it and I would hate for him to have to suffer bathing suit anxiety! 😉 I vote for you and Mel every day!! xx
Thank you, Susan!
Thanks, Susan. But the first step is getting Herve to admit he has a problem.
This is so awesome! It just shows what a great mom you are.
Thanks, Deana. 🙂
LOVE, LOVE , LOVE this from start to finish. Thanks for ALL the support. *mwah*
And to the lovely ODNT Jr.,
Awesome artwork, as usual. xo
That’s the most beautiful drawing of a recipe I’ve ever seen!!
Congrats on the top 25! I know you don’t know me but I like to think it was my vote that got you there. You’re welcome! 😉
EVERY VOTE COUNTS, BECK! It probably WAS you. 🙂
Thanks so much. Please keep reading … and voting … and flossing. All important.
So done! 🙂
K, I voted again for you and Mel.
And I’ll link to this in my friday post.
Now in the name of all that’s holy, why is Herve wrapped in toilet paper? Why?!?
You know … *I* thought it was a cooking apron … but what do I know? So, I asked on your behalf.
Duh. It’s the varied color pattern of his rodent fur.
We clearly know nothing about hamsters.
