We are THAT Family
... you know the ones.
OMG that is the funniest thing i read today…love their imagination = )
super duper. lol.
kids are so creative!
see, this is exactly the thing that I miss because I don't have little kids and the reason that I enjoy your blog! Hilarious!
(I have young adult stepchildren, they just want money or love advice, not half as entertaining)
YOur kids sound great!
ANd think they'll even give you a "memorial"..sniff sniff ;0)
Wow, what a great mommy you are! Not even a moment's hesitation!!
LOL, good to know your contribution will be recorded…
Too hilarious! Ah, kids, they are the masters of creation aren't they?
I love your sense of humor…and I have to apologize, I'm still laughing. It's because you have company. I realized it hits too close to home.
Oh that is too funny! Kids are so hilarious! I love this story.
Cute, very cute. I just love the minds of kids. So I assume your okay?
I think I can speak for all of us when I say we are proud to have known such a stalwart supporter of her children, that, having led a "full life" she was prepared to make the scientific sacrifice required for the education of her youngsters.
*silent weeping* (yeah, I know it looks like laughter, but really, it's weeping!)
That is PRICELESS. How you kept a straight face I'll never know!-Jo
That is a great post. Of course, you know you may have to test this field out more than once because these things rarely work the first time. I hope you aren't too old for the final test~ your kids sound so cute. I agree with Gwen that you miss this kind of thing when you don't have little kids around, mine are 19 and 20, and I doubt they'll let me test any of their inventions anymore.
That is absolutely hysterical. Just what I needed to get this Monday started!
Kids are so funny! My husband says they clearly need to spend a little thought on the ethics of using humans for their clinical trials. (He's in pharmaceutics research).
Now those are TWO scientists that are headed for the Nobel Prize!
Hands down one of the greatest kids stories ever! I love it!
Sounds like your kids would get along great with my son. He hasn't thought of that yet, but he always has a project to work on.
ROFL!!!!!!!! How nice that they are willing to give you a little bit of the credit if you bite the dust!!! LOLOLOL Priceless! Please be sure to post a picture of their first man made magnetic feild!! Dyin to see what they come up with!! LOL!!
You are so brave, to put the needs of the many (you're making history after all) above the needs of the one (you). You are an inspiration.
But I'm still not drinking every "experiment" my daughter makes in the blender. I've seen some of the ingredients. Besides, that's what brothers are for, right?
How adorable! Any chance you guys could move next door to us? I think creating a super duper magnetic force field would be more beneficial to my kids than watching yet another episode of Sponge Bob!
Oh how hilarious! I couldnt have done it…I could not have bit my lip hard enough.
LOL! so funny but very smart!
Ahh…the unbridled confidence of youth!
I love it! As if the getting along part wasnt' enough…now they're going to be famous scientists.
This reminds me so very, very much of the things my brother and I used to do… as a mom now, it's beyond me how my own mom could just let us take on these projects. Our imaginations ran WILD most of the time and she just went with it!
So what happened with the super magnetic field? Don't leave us hanging.
this might be the most "super duper" blog entry I have ever read. So funny!! I love the way kids think. So fascinating to get a peek into their minds.
hehehe… at least you know you have *years and years* ahead of you before you kick the bucket in a glorious attempt to validate your children's research!
homeschoolers, no doubt
Oh, that is so funny! I love that their shopping list included candy too!
So good that they will give you credit where credit is due at least!
You will tell us what happens next, right? The suspense might just be too much!
Sounds like they had a fun day, which means you had a good day!
oh how funny! i remember being a "chemist" when i was younger and dissolving the little easter egg pellets and mixing the water. unfortunately my creativity ended there. you'll have to keep us posted on their progress!!
That is so cute! Who knows? Maybe this will lead to a career for them in science!
That is too hilarious! I love that they were busy all day with this project too:)
That's so funny! I love it!
Well. In a word, the experiment failed. Because they lost interest. But every day is a new day!
That is the best conversation EVER! Only a mom who is inspiring could bring on that much world-changing inspiration.
BTW…I forgot to add in my chicken/cookbook giveaway comment….only you would ask for chicken. Cracked me up!
HI! I'm Kristen. I'm here to encourage you as a wife and mom and remind you there's a little bit of THAT family in all of us. I write books, run Mercy House and try to remember I am third (God first, others second). I'm glad you're here.
