IF YOU WOULD JUST DO WHAT I TELL YOU TO, I WOULDN'T HAVE TO BE SO BOSSY

I'm not bossy. I call it "persuasive."

I have been trying to get Gilmore Girl to start a blog. She doesn't speak English much, I don't know what it is, but it's funny. I think she was Aunt Pat's child, just born to me. Aunt Pat said funny things, too. They didn't have "roast beef" at Aunt Pat's house, they had "roast beast." She is the one who took the word "interesting" to a whole new level. If she told you someone was interesting you were looking for clues about why they were not normal.

I have nagged Gilmore Girl and asked nicely and blackmailed--"If you don't start a blog I will start one for you and put whatever I want and people will think it's you." And yet, she bloggeth not. Until now.

THE SILLY THINGS WE DO....

Success! It is mine.

PS She says she's doing it because she didn't journal enough--or hardly at all--but the real reason is she honors her mother. Translation: She's tired of hearing the same old argument. When I open my mouth and the word "blog" comes out all she hears is, "Blog, blah, blah, blah," and she's sick of the blah's. So, she blogs.

I say "roast beast" but only when I do the "this little piggie" to my childrens toes. Except for they're called pigs and not toes. Plus it is a for melon and not a forhead. Just ask R. yfc

Resistance is futile.

Now since you have so much sucess with your powers of persuasion why don't you get the powers that be to end wars, poverty and find cures for all the sicknesses? I have confidence that you could do it...I really do.

A mom's job is to bug the kids, even when they are grown. Maybe, more especially when they are grown.

You did good, Lynne!!

You people, Don't incourage her! Her head is big enough without all the praise. And if your not careful I am gonna stop blogging altogether. I am that stubborn. yfc

Such a cutie family! My daughter was the one that got me to start blogging... I would call her and vent to her and tell her the crazy things that would happen to me, and she said---you should write that down, Mom.

And so I do! That was three years ago---and it is better than seeing a therapist.
