    A little cute something is that my 9 month old nephew is not big on bottles. Won't go for them. He loves however to drink out of a glass. Although I must say at the party that was held this weekend (my birthday was on the 10th but we had the party on Saturday) he kept pulling the glass I had pop in and or water in towards him. He left with more of the beverage on him than in him. He was all smiles about it though.

  3. Oh, oh, oh, I'm a follower! Yippee! Lori

    And for a little Monday giggle or awwww - check out this cute video: All the Single Babies -

    *I'm a follower on twitter (but you knew that too)

    *My funny is that my 2 year old said his first curse word last week...and I didn't even post about it so you are the first to hear in the blogosphere. He repeated "Son of a bitch!!!" from That 70's Show. Hope that brings you a smile.

    *I'll work on reposting later! :)

    tweeted about your giveaway.

  13. My cute and funny 3 year old niece is going to be a big sister. Alway curious , she asked her mom where babies come from. Her mom told her Jesus gave the baby to them. That satisfied my niece but a few days later she told her mom "I want you to give the baby back to Jesus". Apparently she is rethinking the whole sharing mommy & daddy thing!

  14. I'm a follower here and I just started following Good Will Grace.

    And...when I first read this post from you this morning and you wrote, "Are you all wearing your party hats?", I read it as "Are you all wearing your PANTS?"

    It was early. That's my only excuse.

    3 entries for me, please. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!


  15. I follow you on the blog and twitter. What a great giveaway!

    And a funny thing is my favorite line of all time is "It's a good thing Jesus gave you..." My husband and I were in a store once and a little boy was saying he didin't want to wear his coat, and his dad said, "Well it's a good thing Jesus gave you two hands then." The kids face was priceless.

  16. Congratulations! What a great giveaway :-) I'm already a follower on this blog and on Twitter, and I tweeted about the giveaway. And something funny? Well, this weekend my husband and I slept in a room above my grandparents, and pretty much half the night we heard them yelling at each other about what was the best way to get to Florida and what hotel they should stay in. And about every third sentence was one or the other saying, "I can't hear you! What are you saying?!". It was hilarious! I guess that's what happens when you're old and you take your hearing aids out!

  17. I'm a follower on your blog.

    I did a blog post!

    My funny is that today I wore my shirt to work backwards. I work with all guys and one of them pointed it out to me at noon.In front of clients. Tragic I tell you. What can you do? It was early when I got dressed and Monday...

  20. i'm a follower! what a great giveaway!!!

    I don't have anything too funny, but something cool that happened is that I met a redskins linebacker this weekend and got a picture with him!

  21. Hi. I am a new follower!!!
    A few years ago my yellow lab ate an entire ham!!! It was on the stove cooling...I went upstairs to take a shower, came back to the kitchen and the ham was GONE! I found the dog belly up on the couch. He was sick for a week! I was so mad @ the time but now I can't eat ham at Thanksgiving or Christmas without getting tickled!

  22. Um, holy moley, count me in! I'm a follower, of course, and as soon as I blog, etc., I'll let you know so I can rack up some points! Because I play to win;)

  23. I am a follower :)

    I just became a follower of the other, too.

    Someone else wrote about their dog, which made me remember the time that my husband came in the kitchen and was like "are you kidding??? You are all the good stuff!!!" And I had no idea what he was talking about, so I asked "what do you mean" and he said "I can't believe you ate all the melted cheese off the lasagna!"

    Turns out our golden had jumped on the counter when neither of us were looking and devoured the entire top layer...she did so without leaving a mess, so my husband thought it was me - ha!

  24. I follow the blog and twitter. I just tweeted about the giveaway. I follow good will grace on the blog and on twitter. Great giveaway...

  25. Congrats on 200 posts!

  26. I am a follower of your blog and I follow you on twitter. This is such an amazing giveaway!! I am trying to think of something funny but it is so late and I cannot, haha. I used to eat birdseed when I was little, but who didn't?

  27. i'm a follower of your blog! hmmm funny little puppy thinks he's a pig. whenever he's happy, he grunts and rolls around on his back like he's in the mud. kind of weird, but so adorable!

  28. You are like the rainbow to my gloomy day. This is awesome! I just found you through The Perks! So fun!

    And to add to the comment kristen left above, I ate vaseline intensive care lotion as a kid. Tasted so good!

  29. i'm a follower!!!! what a great giveaway!

  30. for my funny thing...

    my fourth graders told me a joke this morning...

    why couldn't the pirate get into the movie?...because it was rated RRRRRRRRR!

  31. I love you. :)

    I'm a follower.

    You know I'll blog about it & link back.

    I don't know that this is particularly funny (to me it was, but I laugh at myself all the time) but, the city I'm in this week has an 80's hairband'ish radio station. LOVE Hairband. So, Def Leppard came on (Rock It) and of course, I had to Rock it! Hard core, you know with head banging (slightly) & the windows down. Look to my right & find a nice young couple completely cracking up at me. Whatever - they're too young to understand!!

    PS: My word verification is venti - this makes me think of SBX & Pumpkin Spice Lattes. :)

  32. Your stuff is great!

    I am now a follower!

    I find it funny that I am the only person in the world that just realized a vitamin makes you nauseous!

It took me a minute to realize he wasn't calling me anything, he wanted to watch "Barney Goes To The BEACH"! lol
