Week #10 Saturday Top Five Laughs – Join the Blog Hop!

Saturdays Top Laughs dentistmelsbbutton-11

I took some time off over Christmas so I broke my straight run of posts for the Saturday Top Laughs but I enjoyed the time off! And now it’s time to laugh with the Goulds again! Once more we have joined The Mommyhood Chronicles for Week #10 – for us – in the Saturday Top Five Laughs of the week.

6. My husband was messing with the garbage cans at the end of the driveway on garbage day, when our three year old saw him from our front window he started calling, “Daddy!” Then it changed to, “Robert!” which came out more like “obert”. I proceeded to ask him what my name was and he goes, “eesa”. It was cute and now he hasn’t called us by our names since. Recently I taught him our real names but it was like one time so I was surprised that he remembered our real names, then again he does hear us calling each other by our real names.

5. Robert celebrated his birthday recently and the girls made him two birthday desserts but only one was ready to eat in time. He said the next morning he had a bad dream (I call it a birthday nightmare) that mice came and ate his chocolate chip cheesecake during the night. He woke up with relief to find out the cheesecakes were just fine. ;)

1. Our children started calling my husband “Vader” after watching Star Wars over the Christmas break. Our 14 year old daughter, B, discovered “Vader” is the alternate spelling of the Dutch word “Vater” meaning father. Darth Vader means “dark father”. B and O even decorated their dad’s birthday dessert accordingly. B’s been calling me “Mater”, latin for mother.

That’s as good as it gets this week. How about you, what laughs have you started 2014 with? Or what nicknames do your children come up with for you and your husband?

    LOL Love how they call him Vader and so sweet to make him not one but TWO desserts!

  2. Donna says:

    What a great start you’re having in 2014! Mine has been full of laughter and fun, too. My son goes back to school next Tuesday, so until then, we are staying up late, sleeping late, playing tons of games, and just having a blast. :)

  3. Stefanie says:

    Your kids sound very smart!

  4. You soooo need to get pics of those kittens catching the drips!

  5. Mellisa says:

    That is so sweet! Love how they call him Vaderl

  6. Julie says:

    Ha! Rodents eating my dessert would be MY nightmare too!

  7. Shell Feis says:

    Too cute about your real names! My son forgets our real names all the time because when my husband & I talk to each other we just call each other “Babe”.

  8. That is so cute Eesa ;-) Love these!

  9. Angela says:

    Miss Moo seems to be quite tolerant of those pesky kittens. :)

  10. Mickey says:

    My three year old was calling my husband by his first name last week too. It’s funny how they’re at the same stage.

  11. Lolo says:

    No clue that Vader meant father! Wonder if my husband knows that.

  12. LyndaS says:

    No nick names. Interesting – the facts about Darth Vader. That’s the first I heard of it.

  13. Tammy says:

    Love the cake and the fun behind it! When you said they’ve been calling you ‘Mater’ I can only think of the tow truck from Cars LOL!

  14. Linda and Lola, I had no idea Vader meant father either. My children keep me on my toes sometimes!

    I know, Tammy, I immediately thought of that too! I still think of it when they call me “Mater”.

    Rachel, I so want a photo of the kittens sitting under Miss Moo too. I am barely awake when the girls go to milk. So as soon as I am awake enough to remember or make them a note to take my phone out, we’ll have a photo.

  15. mel says:

    I also didn’t know Vader meant father! How sweet is this! These are so cute!!!

  16. HilLesha says:

    Haha. What a cute nickname! :)

  17. Ha, I think it’s funny your children call your hubby Vader.
