We're So Classy

This is the "We're so classy" version of Three Things Thursday.

We're so classy that....

1.  When I changed Avery's diaper yesterday afternoon, I took only a diaper into the living room thinking "it's only wet."  Oh no, it was poopy.
Gotta keep you on your toes Mommy.
My solution???  Carry my toddler through the house by her ankles saying "weeeee" until we got to the wipes container.  Despite all this, while wiping her bottom I got poop on my fingers...and before realizing it, I wiped hair off my forehead.  Yes, that's right, I wiped toddler poop on my forehead.  You all wish you were as cool classy as me.

2.  We took our 19 month old to a Hockey game last weekend.  And watched her terrorize the guy in front of her.  She felt that stadium seating means you climb over the backs of chairs, duh.  She also rather enjoyed throwing whatever she had in her hands that direction.  After the second time, I didn't ask the guy to pick her stuff up from under his seat.  I did offer to buy him anything he wanted at the concession stand, but he turned me down.  He clearly recognized how honored he was to be so close to our awesomeness.
Next time, I'll be unstoppable!
And, we bought her a hockey stick.  Afterwards, we realized that gift was best enjoyed at home...in her church dress.  We're classy like that.

3.  When spring like weather hits, we get a headstart on the planting season.....which requires plenty of dirt throwing and banshee screaming.  Trust me.  And it's even classier if you do it in your church dress.
This is a different video than the one I uploaded to FaceBook for those who saw that one.  Still the same stuff though.  :)

What classy stuff have you done lately?


  1. Awesome! Love it :)

  2. My kid eats dinner pants-less most evenings. If she went her pants late in the day it's just not worth dirtying another pair. Yep. Classy.

  3. I'm too lazy to put shoes on my kid if it's warm. I'm also too lazy to put pants on myself.

  4. Wow, canNOT top that. Especially the wiping of toddler poop on one's forehead. That's just pure awesomeness :)

  5. I love how she freezes when told she was on video. As if it mattered! When I read the first one - I was thinking "wait, didn't that happen before?" and then you smeared poop on your forehead. Awesome!

    1. Good memory! Yes, I'm so classy that I have carried my child with a naked bum through my house saying wee more than once. :D

  6. I get baby poop on me all the time. So I guess that makes me classy too ;) .

  7. The infrequency with which we bathe our children during the work week is the best indicator of our class.


Comments pretty much make my day - so thank you for yours!
