I Kissed A Squirrel

Awhile back I wrote Gotta Sing, Gotta Dance…But Not To This! about my youngest daughter singing along with the Katy Perry song “I Kissed a Girl”.

The other day the song came on the radio and just as I was about to change to a different station my little one asked if she could sing me the version of the song the boys were singing on the playground at school. Knowing that I can always use a  good playground laugh I told her to go ahead.

She started singing and I started cracking up!

Her version was “I Kissed a Squirrel and I liked it, the taste of it’s Nutty Chapstick!”

I went on YouTube to find her version of the song and sure enough there are plenty of them out there! I thought this version was great!

This was sort of the way I planned,
I had some intentions.
I got so brave, acorn in hand,
Lost my direction.
It is what I’m used to,
just wanna take it on.
I’m curious for it
Caused my distraction!

I kissed a squirrel and I liked it,
The taste of its acorn chapstick.
I kissed a squirrel just to try it,
I hope my hamster don’t mind it.
It felt so wrong it felt so right,
doesn’t mean I am going to his tree tonight.
I kissed a squirrel and I liked it, I liked it.

No, I don’t even know if its tame,
It doesn’t matter.
Some people just don’t feel the same,
He’s part of nature.
It’s not what normal people do,
Not how they should behave.
My head gets so confused,
hard to obey!

I kissed a squirrel and I liked it,
The taste of its acorn chapstick.
I kissed a squirrel just to try it,
I hope my hamster don’t mind it.
It felt so wrong it felt so right,
doesn’t mean I am going to his tree tonight.
I kissed a squirrel and I liked it, I liked it.

Those squirrels are so magical,
Soft fur, small eyes, so kissable.
Hard to resist so touchable,
Too good to deny it.
Ain’t no big deal its innocent.

I kissed a squirrel and I liked it,
The taste of its acorn chapstick.
I kissed a squirrel just to try it,
I hope my hamster don’t mind it.
It felt so wrong it felt so right,
doesn’t mean I am going to his tree tonight.
I kissed a squirrel and I liked it, I liked it.

A Day Late And A Dollar Short

Question Of The Week

Question of the week: What do you do for Easter? Do you color Easter Eggs? Do you make Easter baskets? Do you have an Easter Egg hunt?




We color Easter Eggs every year and I make baskets for the kids. I always put a stuffed animal in their basket and some kind of religious item. We also do an Easter Egg hunt every year when we get the entire family together.

Just Another Day Of Shopping

The other day my daughters and I went to our local Target to find a birthday present for one of the kids in our neighborhood who was turning 4. My 16 year old daughter of course took off on her own into the book section. This left me and my 9 year old daughter alone together. Being that we think alike this is not always a good thing, us being alone together!

We ventured into the little kids toy section to find our present. We have this really bad habit of trying out the toys in the store. I know people hate it when all of the talking toys are going off but we find it very amusing. We found a toy called Potty Time Elmo. I kid you not this is a real toy!

The toy in the store only flushed and sang the Potty song!

My 9 year old daughter could not stop laughing at this toy! We finally started to walk away from Potty Time Elmo and she came up with a brilliant idea to embarrass her older sister. I have this great hidden talent of imitating Elmo. She had me go into the aisle that was behind the Potty Time Elmo while she went and got her sister. I was to wait until I heard her say “Look at this toy.” When I heard her say her magic words I said in my Elmo voice, “Uh Oh, Elmo needs to go potty! Will you help Elmo go potty little girl?” Then my youngest daughter pushed Elmo’s hand and it did it’s thing. I then said “Elmo says thank you for helping him go potty because he almost peed in his box!”

After that my youngest daughter and I just lost it! I was cracking up so hard I almost peed in my box! Even the lady that was in my aisle was laughing!

My 16 year old daughter was sooo embarrassed by us! She vowed to never go shopping with us again! I just don’t understand why!

A Day At The Zoo

Last Wednesday we went to the Houston Zoo. Apparently the rest of the City of Houston decided to do the same thing! We spent 30 minutes trying to find a parking spot but after that it was smooth sailing. My daughters had a great day! They did not even fight with each other, which made my day great!

All Wrapped Up Into One

This week my girls are on Spring Break. So I am going to spend the week playing with my kids.

Tomorrow we have a great day of outside yard work planned! Boy I bet the kids will have a blast pulling weeds, trimming the bushes and spreading out mulch!

Wednesday, we thought the kids would like to visit with some extended family so we have planned a day at the Houston Zoo. Believe it or not the 16 year old is more excited about this than the 9 year old. But, I guess that is why she wants to be a vet!

The rest of the week is up in the air for now. I am sure we will be able to find plenty of things to do.

Question of the week: What are you planning on doing for Spring Break? Or What was your favorite Spring Break activity?

If You Sing It, They Will Laugh

I am a car singer. Yes, I am one of those crazy people you all probably make fun of who sings in her car. I just can’t help it, if there is music on and I will start singing right along with it!

Yesterday afternoon I pulled into a parking space at my youngest daughter’s school and just as I was about to turn off the car I looked over and there was another mom looking at me and laughing her ass off.

It was a fairly nice day so I had the windows rolled down and of course I had the radio on like I always do. I wasn’t even paying attention to what was playing on the radio, but I of course was singing and singing loud.

Well guess what I was singing?

Hannah Montana / Miley Cyrus The Hoedown Throwdown!

Talk about embarrassing!

I am starting to think that I am going to have to declare a no Radio Disney or Disney Channel rule for a week!

Happy Birthday Barbie!

Happy 50th Birthday Barbie!

Where have the years gone, Barbie is 50 years old!

Barbie has had her fair share of problems over the years, that is for sure!

But, no matter what, Barbie always seems to find a job!



 Not too mention all the sports she has played!

My Own Way

Question Of The Week

Question of the day: At what age should you let children attend a non-family member funeral?

My youngest daughter goes to a private Catholic school. This past weekend the school secretary lost her husband. Her son also works at the school as our Coach and Health teacher. Being that we are a very small school, only about 300 kids for Pre-K through 8th grade, they will be letting the older kids attend to funeral mass. The older kids being from 4th – 8th graders, which means my daughter will be attending. I have no problem with her attending the mass but that is because she has already attended a funeral before.

What’s your opinion?

Spring Cleaning

Yesterday afternoon we were homework free for a change. My youngest daughter decided it was just too nice to be inside. She went outside to ride her bike in our cul-de-sac. As usual, when one kid pops outside at least 3 or 4 more decide to pop out as well.

I ventured outside with my cup of coffee to be cul-de-sac traffic monitor. Little did I know I was going to have to give a lesson about the birds and the bees!

The kids were watching two morning doves doing their natural “Spring Time” thing on top of our fence. One of the younger kids of course had to ask: “What are they doing?” My daughter, knowing very well what they were doing, chirped in with: “Ya, Mom, What are they doing?” I gave her the evil eye and she just started laughing! Little shit!

I had all five kids, ranging from 5 to 9 years old, just looking up at me waiting for an answer. I looked them dead in the eye and told them: “They are just arguing over who has to do the Spring cleaning at their nest.”

I could hear my neighbor laughing her ass off in her backyard! I told her next time she is going to have to be cul-de-sac traffic monitor!

My 5 Questions…

I decided to let Joan over at Whatever I Think interview me. She sent me 5 very good questions to answer. She also told me to have fun answering them. Be careful what you ask for! 🙂

1.  You really seem to enjoy your life as a mom.  Do you think you would ever want to get a job outside the home and if you did what would you like to do?

Having been a mom for the past 16 years I think my best choice for a job would be working in a Zoo! Actually I am looking for a job even as we speak. I worked in the fast food restaurant business for 20 years. I spent 4 years as a grunt, 8 years managing the stores and 8 years in the office doing payroll and accounts payable. I am looking for a part-time office job for now. If it comes to the point where I have no choice but to get a job I have no problem going back to work in the restaurants.

2.   What reality show would you choose to be on if you had to make a choice and why?

This was a hard question because I don’t watch much reality TV. At first I thought The Super Nanny would be good. Maybe she could come in and whip my kids into shape. But no, then I wouldn’t have any more fun left for me! I would have to pick Wife Swap. That way my husband and kids could see just how easy they have it! My only question is do you have to swap back if you don’t want to!

3.   What is the first thing you do when you wake up and get out of bed in the morning?

That would be open my eyes. Then I put my glasses on so my eyes can actually work. Next I go to the little girls room. Then comes my morning IV drip of black coffee! Everyone in my house knows the rules, no questions before my coffee!

4.  What is more important to you–your cell phone or your computer and why?

I hate talking on the phone! I always have and always will.  So I would have to pick my computer. My computer lets me do pretty much anything I want. I keep in contact with all of my friends and family with it and I keep in touch with both daughter’s schools.

5.  If you could live anywhere in the world where would you like to live and why?

Believe it or not I would be living right where I am. I have lived in Connecticut and New Hampshire and I always end up right back here! The Houston area is an awesome place to live! We have pretty good weather most of the year. We have tons of stuff to do from fine arts to anything outdoors. The cost of living is very good here and we have no state income tax here.

I feel very blessed to have been born in the U.S.A.! I would love to travel to other countries that is for sure. I would love to visit the countries where my family came from: Ireland, Denmark and France.


Now, if you would like ME to interview YOU, here’s what to do:
1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”
2. I will email you 5 questions.
3. You answer the questions on your blog.
