On Becoming a Hero

As I've mentioned in the past, I've been blessed with 5 incredible kids. They're a handful, and if we had to do it all over again, I think we would probably have stopped after 2, but that said, now that I know them, I wouldn't trade any of them for the world.

For some reason though, kids love toilet humor, and my kids seem to be way ahead of the curve on this. I think one of my 3 year old son's first words was 'fart' and he not only understood the word, but could demonstrate with remarkable proficiency as well.

At this point it's probably worth mentioning that the level of language used in the post is not likely to be raised much at all as it continues, so if you're uncomfortable with the topic being discussed so far, might I recommend you return in a day or two and simply ignore this post...

Anyway, so back to the topic at hand. Even my 16 month old, little angel has discovered that if she squats down and goes "Pissssssssss!" it garners delight from all her older siblings - and disapproving looks from Mom and Dad, which is apparently a plus as well - How she knows this, I have NO idea.

Anyway, so with that background, and with the idea I've been working on, to add more lights to my house for this Christmas, I was sent the following:

I'm thinking a light display such as this would likely make me an immortal hero in the eyes of my kids - and likely all the neighborhood kids too. Actually, I was going to jot down a few of the negative consequences too, but I realized there really aren't any...

The neighbors all think I'm going to hell, and speak about me behind my back, so it's not like that would be new...

Walmart were all out of green fairy light, which was what my lighting plans were to be based on, but this doesn't call for green lights...

Perhaps I'll be adding to my light display this weekend after all!


  1. Do it, DO IT, I dare you. You've nothing to loose afterall, seeing as we will finaly meet in the burning pits of hell and all.
    Merry, merry.

  2. I totally dare you. I double dare you. I'll see you all in hell! And I mean that quite gleefully.

  3. If it wasn't for the 3 inches of snow on my roof and the freezing temps outside....

    Maybe if it warms up, and if not, then next year!!
