Week #13 Saturday Top Five Laughs

Saturdays Top Laughs dentistmelsbbutton-11

Can’t believe I have been consistent for 13 weeks for the Saturday Top Five Laughs! Woo hoo! Once more we have joined The Mommyhood Chronicles in the Saturday Top Five Laughs of the week.

5. Last week I went out to lunch with my “farm” buddies – other women farmers and farmerwannabees – and my friend, who also has cows (beef and a Jersey) shared with me that conventional farmers do not allow their cows to go the bathroom during milking. Now I could be wrong, but I swear the cows at the farm we grew up going to and buying milk from went to the bathroom during milking. Nova Scotia friend Elaine, are you reading? What does the N farm do? Anyhooo…Miss Moo going potty has been an issue for us. So C told me to hold a bucket under Miss Moo’s tail when she went to go. B did this ONCE and Miss Moo has stopped going to the bathroom during milking. Miss Moo knew what she was doing was wrong and was taking advantage of us beginners! I am still shaking my head at that. My pregnancy and sensitivity to smells stopped me from continuing to milk Miss Moo, but so did her bathroom tricks. I think I’ll have to pick up milking again…if Miss Moo will let me. She would not let anyone milk her one evening when B and my husband went to a farmers market. She waited for B to come home! She’s definitely B’s cow.

2. I bought a new garbage can to store animal feed in and this is what the little boys did with it before it got taken down to the barn….why buy toys, right? Then I had to take it from them because they started to do stupid stuff. What my husband likes to blame on the “S” gene (for stupid gene).

1. We still have our Christmas tree up. Yep, we do. I bet it stays up until the end of January.

    Ha! We still have our tree up too! It’s making my husband insane, but the kids asked for a little more time with it, so we’ll finally get around to taking it down tomorrow. :)

  2. Mellisa says:

    I actually took my tree down early this year but usually it’s still up..lol.

  3. Colleen says:

    Reminds me of my daughter who loves to snuggle with us in bed she likes to get in between us.

  4. One year we kept out tree up until March (yes, March!). I was too lazy to take it down lol. Shh! Don’t tell!

  5. Kathleen says:

    Love the very tall snow man. Boys definitely love anything they can climb into, mine do the same thing.

  6. Ha! That would be a pretty tall snowman in real life with all of those rolls!

  7. LyndaS says:

    That’s pretty interesting about the cows. I will have to keep that in mind should I ever get one. (And yes, I have thought of getting one.)

  8. I love snuggling with my daughter :)

  9. I love the cute snowman drawing, that’s a lot of snowballs!

  13. Love the snowman. So cute!

  14. Your 3-yr-old definitely has the basic shapes down pat :)

  15. Lolo says:

    Our tree was up until last weekend!

  16. Marcie W. says:

    Father son bonds are the best! I love seeing my husband and son spend quality time and have fun with one another.

  17. I love the daddy and son shot! I never even thought about the animals needing to potty while being milked, nor would I have thought they could be taught not to do it!

  18. Tammy says:

    Just take off the Christmas decorations and put up hearts on it – Valentine’s Tree ;) You just might start a trend!

  19. Donna says:

    Okay, my tree isn’t still up, but it is still in the box downstairs as you go out the door into my garage, yet to be put away. This whole month has been crazy for me.
