My Third Blogoversary! And a contest!

Today is my three year "blogoversary!" Whoohooo! Hear the tootie horns a blowing!

Three years ago after a friend introduced me to Dooce's blog and from there I found some other amazing female writers, I decided it was time to start my own blog. I needed a place to share stories, vent, swear, talk about sex, and just have a creative outlet. It was five months before I received my first comment. And boy, was I excited! Hell, I still get excited when I get a comment.

So, to celebrate I had a little logo made by the amazing Shauna and I whipped up a few t-shirts and things at Check it out!

And with that, I am offering my very first Give-A-Way at Mommy Needs Therapy!

Leave a comment on this post that will make me laugh (a funny story, something your kid did, a bad joke, etc.) because I'm going to need it this week, and you could win an item of your choice from my shop.

The contest is open until Friday, August 15 at midnight east coast time. Saturday morning once I drag my sorry ass pop out of bed refreshed and ready to great the day Noah and I will randomly choose one commenter. Make sure you leave a way for me to contact you! Even though you have to include your email to contact me I can't actually view it unless you have that option checked in your blogger account.

So that's it, leave me a comment, make me laugh, and Saturday morning I will announce the winner! So tell your friends!



  1. Funny story. My daughter, then 18 months, was carrying an enormous bucket around our yard. She teetered back and forth, round and round, then spun around, finally landing in the bucket. I did not witness this event nor do I have it recorded. My husband saw it. But we replay this event quite frequently. Our daughter is now 9...she loves hearing the story over and over again.

  2. ok you're getting this cute freshness, AS IT'S HAPPENING! Are you excited? Are you ready for it? My 10 y.o. and 7 y.o. are on the couch watching the Olympic women's rowing and son turns to daughter and says "what's up with their butts?" (not realizing it's the moving seats that make them able to shift back and forth). Very wise daughter says "Those are their extra big Olympic butts, because you bring your best stuff to compete." !!!! Did you bring YOUR best butt today? I think I misplaced mine.

  3. whenever my kids are being wild or loud or just way out there, I blame my husband Y chromosome. Yesterday, my 11 yr old and 2 yr old were in rare form. When I commented on it, my 11 yr old looked at me and said, "I have your husband's DNA. If you wanted calm, quiet, compliant children, you should have done a better job picking." I think it was at least 5 minutes before I stopped laughing.

  4. Congrats to you! Check your email for a little something for your page! Kudos!

  5. I think it is funny you sell MNT thongs for 12.99$ ...

  6. OMG!!! I am not even gonna try, cause Kristin wins hands down. "you should have done a better job picking" holy crap that's rich!

  7. I would like to be able to win one of your Tees Katt, however it seems that i could be wearing prision oranges for a bit.

    You see i was with my son the other day standing outside the bank here in town waiting for a gorgeous old lady to finish at the ATM.

    Unfortunately for me my son takes things VERY literally.

    The old lady asked us to "check her balance". Now you and I would think that would simply be - $3.12 and you can afford a tin of spam!

    My son on the other hand thought that she meant that she needed to be pushed over.... apparently her balance is not sooooooo good.

    But to be fair he is at home with his mum and now i am enjoying a nice meal of spam in jail.

    Congrats on your third - im looking to get early release!


  8. My 4 year old(at the time)son Noah and I were walking in a store together, when a fairly large woman walked by Noah announced rather loudly
    "Mama! I didnt know they made pants THAT big!!"
    Needless to say, I tried to hide us as quickly as possible. And later explained that while yes, she was quite large, it was impolite to say such things in public.

    Kids....they say the darnedest things.

  9. Happy blogoversary!

    My daughter turned to an elderly woman in the yogurt aisle and said to her, "my mommy has the biggest bandaid in her underpants and it's called a pantiliner."

    And that's what you get for allowing your child to accompany you into the bathroom prior to a trip to the food store.

  10. I don't have anything funny, but happy blogoversary!

  11. Nothing funny from me, either, but I wanted to say happy Blogoversary! Three years is quite the accomplishment!

  12. Congrats on your Anniversary!

    From the Corny but Funny Files:

    Things To Do In An Elevator

    1) When there's only one other person in the elevator, tap them on the shoulder and then pretend it wasn't you.

    2) Call the Psychic Hotline from your cell phone and ask if they know what floor your on.

    3) Move your desk into the elevator and whenever anyone gets on, ask if they have an appointment.

    4) Lay down the twister mat and ask people if they would like to play.

    5) Leave a box in the corner, and when someone gets on, ask them if they can hear ticking.

    6) Pretend you are a flight attendant and review emergency procedures and exits with the passengers.

    7) Crack open your briefcase or purse, and while peering inside, ask, "Got enough air in there?"

    8) Wear a puppet on your hand and use it to talk to the other passengers.

    9) Draw a little square on the floor with chalk and announce to the other passengers, "This is MY personal space!"

  14. Happy blogoversary!

  15. ok katt - i chnage my vote. SF should win with the things to do/say in an elevator. i could not stop crying. that is hilarious!

  16. I am still laughing at Kristin's! That was the best!

  17. OK, so I don't think I can top the Olympic Butt or the DNA, but this is still fresh from last night...

    7 yo DS and 4 yo DS:
    7 yo: "Stop picking your nose! That's GROSS"
    4 yo: "I wasn't"
    7 yo: "Yes, you were! I saw you pull out a booger and throw it on the floor!"
    4 yo: "Oh, yeah? Well, I saw you pick your nose and EAT your booger!"
    7 yo: "Yeah, but I didn't throw it on the floor..."

    Um, yeah, that is SOOOOOOO much better than throwing it on the floor. *snort*
