B's Thanksgiving List

Here are the 10 things B learned about Thanksgiving this year:

  1. No matter how many times you poke a turkey it will not get up and run
  2. Turkeys used to have a head now it doesn't
  3. Don't try to eat the contents of bag that mommy pulls out of the turkey. Its not candy. Don't even look in there...trust me.
  4. Grandpa's curried cranberry is not good don't eat it
  5. If you keep saying "Mommy please!" in a high pitched whiny voice while mommy is cooking by the 15th or 16th time someone will get fed up enough to give you all the chocolate milk you can drink.
  6. Under the table is much more fun than sitting in your seat. Especially if you can grab your sisters leg and pull her under there too and then wrestle her to the ground and lay on top of her while singing the Wheels on The Bus Song.
  7. Your head is not filled with hair. It just grows out of the top of your head. The rest of your head is filled with other stuff
  8. Your sister fits perfectly in the boxes the groceries come in. If you sit on the box she will not be able to get out no one will see her and everyone will pay attention to you.
  9. If you squeeze stuffing in your hand you can make stuffing balls which you can then throw at your sister or the dog.
  10. Pie is good.
This is B's list I personally I do not agree at all with number 4. I thought your cranberry sauce was great. I mean it. Sorry Dad.

I like the image of all that hair in my head. That's how I feel most mornings.

I thought #4 was hilarious.

Rebecca Ramsey said...

What? Your head is not filled with hair? I thought it was like those playdough people things, where the hair oozes out of little head holes!

Vodka Mom said...

Oh this posting made my holiday. The holiday is not the same without some small ones around. oh how i laughed.

Susan said...

As usual, these are a hoot. Not having any children, I can only assume they were just as cute while they were happening! I used to have a doll that had hair that grew out of her head, and then some way you cranked it back in. Hmmm.
Great list, Suze, have a super week!

Tay said...

your poor girl. haha - i was mean to my little brother, too. my mother feels for you.

adrienne said...

Oh, you must be thankful Thanksgiving is over.
I remembering thinking my head was full of hair, too.

Erin said...

What a funny list! Chocolate milk is goooood.

Hey, will you be doing some posts of Jewish traditions (or have you done some posts in the past) during this season? I look forward to reading them (and learning some things!).

Susan said...

Susie, the doll that I had was a "Tressie" doll, and I think the maker was called "Uneeda" Doll Company. She was a glamor type fashion doll. I had many hours of fun with her. Ahh, those were the days.

Too funny! Especially the one about pulling his sister under the table and the one about if you whine long enough someone will give you all the chocolate milk you can drink!
Take care,
Julie

Ren said...

This is great! LOL!

My Wonderful Men said...

I think his list is pretty funny.
Love the suffing balls, I'll have to try that next year.

On a different note - Oh Me, Oh My is my main blog and the Country Living is my second blog so I don't get as many post on there. But if I know someone is looking at it I guess I need to get writing. =)

Monica said...

You are very funny. Thanks for the laughs! :o)

The Mrs. said...

mine like to squish the stuffing in their hands too. disgusting but then again... better then a urinal cake!

and yes, we define classy.

Valarie Lea said...

Oh My Gosh number 8!

Veronica said...

Hehehe!

Annie said...

"Turkeys used to have a head now it doesn't"

Why do I have a feeling that lesson wasn't learned without some screaming and/or crying???

TattingChic said...

LOL! B sounds like he learned a LOT this Thanksgiving! I sure hope all these entries are around when he is an adult and can read and laugh at all your observations of him, this is family history you are writing here! Very important stuff! :)

Lance said...

I love #9 - the stuffing balls - sounds like Thanksgiving could be lots of fun with these!!

Ali said...

Doesn't it just warm you heart when they do things like stick their siblings in a box. Nice.

Heh.

Cat said...

I like #2 the best. It's a hard lesson, better to learn early on. Same is true of hamburger, but that's more of an intermediate level lesson.

Sorry I was away, cathcing up now!

Boxes and masking tape--they keep kids busy for hours.
