Bad Parenting. And Even Worse Video.

We were blessed to have Aunt Brenda and her friend Pat come for a quick Texas weekend trip. It was supposed to be a vacation for them, but it was more like a vacation for me. I got to sit back and relax while they were both subjected to hours of Blockus with the kids, swimming with the kids, playing Super Smash Brothers Brawl on the unlimited time setting with the kids, running around the park with the kids, trunk or treating with the kids, and being disappointed with me for not taking more photos.

Of the kids.

(But I know YOU did Pat....anytime you'd like to send 'em to me, that'd be swell.)

The least I could do was post this video like they begged me to, even though

1. it's about .03 seconds long and nothing is in focus

2. it confirms that they really should do some kind of psychological examination before you're allowed to become a mother

3. especially the kind of mother that would laugh at her children's terror. A lot.

Roger thought it would be funny on Halloween night after the boys were in bed to climb up onto the roof (they're on the second story) and bang on the window.

And I thought it would be funny to capture it on video for all posterity. Roll tape.


  1. Snort! I laughed too so I guess you'll have to make room on the 'mean Mom' bench for me!

    Glad you had a great time with your visitors.

  2. I'm sure Oprah will be off the air by the time they are REALLY traumatized, so they'll have no one to go crying to. But what about Dr Phil? Hmmmm . . .

    The important this is, did anyone pee their pants? That would have been awesome!!! I suppose if anyone had, you would've too from laughing so hard!
    Sorry I missed it! =)

  3. I had no idea you were pure evil. Well, an inkling, maybe.

  4. You sound exactly like me. We use costumes for 2 years in a row, how mean is that!

  5. Love it. Wish my kids were in the same room. I'd be hearing about monsters for the rest of my life!

  6. Love it! Too funny!

    I am just stopping in to let you know, I gave you a blog award. I know you don't know me - but I am a stalker of your blog.

    If you feel so inclined, you can pay it forward.

  7. I always suspected that you would have your children taken away from your someday with all the abuse you heap on them!!! Therapy, therapy, therapy!!! LOL
