Annoying Toys and the Parents Who Loathe Them

So, I’ve been on a bit of a deep thread over here at my personal blog, one which I intend to deviate from with my next post which should be up tomorrow. (Wait til you hear what the triplets did yesterday…) But fear not, dear friends. For I still possess a sense of humor. And today it’s on display over at AimingLow. And I gotta say, I’m kinda partial to this post as I think it’s quite funny. Remember the post I wrote for TLC called 10 Astonishingly Annoying Toys? (It wound up on the homepage of YahooShine!) It was inspired by one toy in particular. And that toy is featured in the AimingLow post that just went up today. But what’s also featured is another dialogue with my exceedingly clever and lovely wife. One in which she, per usual, gives me all I can handle. See what happens when we disagree on whether or not a toy will prove to be annoying by clicking HERE. And, again, swing back by tomorrow if you wanna see me try to be funny on my personal blog for a change.

The Baby Gift Bag That Had Little Ding Dongs on It


Babies get gifts. Some come in bags. Funny bags. With little ding dongs on them.

It’s a long story — one which I explain in detail via my first post over at Aiming Low. WARNING: If you like your JCO with peaches and cream, then this might not be the post for you. It’s irreverent, profane and extremely adolescent.

Picture of the Weekend, Aiming Low and One of the Girls

Not only did we survive another weekend, but we also managed to snap this great picture of Kirby holding her baby brother. Isn’t it cute? If only every moment of the adjusting phase were filled with such cuteness. The picture is pretty much a tease, though, because it’s the only original content I have in today’s effort. Not a lotta writing going on this weekend.

Well, I did write one thing, but it’s for Aiming Low — a fantastically clever and funny website that I’m extremely fired up to write for. So as a way of celebrating my new association with them, I’m re-posting an old post that has an Aiming Low connection, albeit a tenuous one. You see, one of the Aiming Low writers is an extremely talented and versatile woman named Schmutzie. And one of the many things she does is share great writing with her readers each and every week via a feature of her blog known as Five Star Friday. Last year, I made the cut with a post I wrote called One of the Girls. If you’re down for reading, click read more and you’ll see it after the jump. Oh. And real quick? It should be noted that the entire post was written tongue-in-cheek and that I absolutely LOVE the woman I refer to as Cindy. Okay, without further ado…
