Oops I did it again...

I'm joining forces with Sunday today because this Ryan Gosling thing is fun.  Seriously, I've not laughed so hard in ages. Go over and check it out and spread the love.


We are still on Spring Break. I hope the teachers are yucking it up because when they get back there's going to be hell to pay.  The boy's not happy about missing school and has taken to Hanging his teacher and anyone else he can think of.  Thank God for parental control is all I can say.

The only thing bringing me some semblance of peace is the fact the kids have Tae Kwon Do camp.  Four blissful days from nine till noon where I only have the baby.

But there's been a catch.  On the first day Alex and Lizzy both brought home this pleasant little surprise:

Seriously, seriously?!?
It's so phallic it's wrong.  

Nunchucks.

Yeah, that's right.  Frigging nunchucks.  Always a fun toy to have around when your kid has no concept of personal space.  Add limited gross and fine motor skills and its just bound to go south.  Only a matter of time.  And since the oldest two have a healthy case of sibling rivalry, they've been beating the shit out of each other since the first day of Camp.

So during Spring Break I may, or may not, have said things like:

"Please guys, don't nunchuck your sister."

"Alex, you have to remember the nunchuck increases the size of your bubble.  OUCH.  GAWD.  FUCK.  Those things hurt.  Please don't nunchuck me like that."

"Hey honey, hand me a nunchuck.  Come on, quick!  The neighbors dog just broke the fence and I think I can get him.  Come-on, give me a damn nunchuck.  Aw frick, he just went back in.  Never mind."

"Is that the way Master Lee showed you how to use those things?  No, I didn't think so..."

"Please guys, don't nunchuck the windows.  They didn't do anything to deserve that kind of treatment."

"Here let mommy try, those things look pretty easy.  OUCH.  GAWD.  FUCK.  Those things really hurt."

"For the last time: DO NOT NUNCHUCK YOUR LITTLE SISTER."

"That's it.  I've had it.  Hand them over.  The nunchucks are in time-out."

In that vein, I give you this:

And this:

I'll stop there but really, with nunchucks?  The possibilities are endless....

  1. Hahahahaha. Can't. Stop. Laughing.

    I'm guessing those nunchucks are going to be in time out for a very long time.

  2. Ryan Gosling doesn't do much for me, but that was funny. Still, I can't get past how badly his shirt is clashing with that carpet.

    Hope the bruises heal soon.

  5. Oh, this gave me the best laugh ever! First off, I vicariously felt your horror over the whole nunchuck thing. Seriously? My house would be in the same state as yours. We'd have Charlotte crying and Tommy and Danny beating the crap out of each other and me. Crap. I don't know how you're managing.

    But these posters are AWESOME!

    1. They have gone at it like wild animals. The thing, is they've not done too much damage since Alex can't seem to hit his target. Little blessings, I guess.

  14. That's crazy. How exactly do kids get nunchucks? I want a pair of nunchucks too, but my wife says no all the time.

    1. See, that's just it--the Master never asked the mom's---the kids just came home with them. I just looked at him and went, "SERIOUSLY?!?"

  16. Jesus. March break is bad enough--but with nunchucks?!? My stress levels elevated just imagining me in your shoes.

  17. Once the kids know how to arm themselves, you're fucked. Seriously, get out of the house now. You're gonna have to kiss Ryan goodbye & assume a new identity at the safe house. We'll miss you...

    2. THERE IS NO MORE ROOM!!!!! All I've got left is about 10 square feet of empty space in the garage, and I'm saving it. I'm going to hang up pretty pictures and call it my "sanity corner."

  25. Nunchucks...if only I had those. My son has heard a song about penises somewhere, and enjoys singing it at the top of his lungs. I don't think we can go back to church for a bit.

Comments make me all squishy but remember to be nice. If you're not nice then what you said goes *poof.* There's your warning.
