A new collective noun inspired by my recent usage of "murder of crows." I present "terror of toddlers" as a new collective noun.
Usage: "I invited one too many kids to my son's party and ended up with a terror."
What could possibly be more appropriate? Get the word out.
On a car ride with The Boy, The Wife, his grandmother and grandfather...
The Boy (in reference to something completely unrelated): "I'm confused."
Me: "Just wait until you get married."
The Boy's grandfather laughed and for some reason his grandmother offered to let me walk the rest of the way. I felt The Look from my wife bounce harmlessly off.
Was I wrong? I think not.
The Boy's grandparents wanted him to spend the night since she hadn't seen him much over the holidays. We, of course, were more than happy
to unload him and go enjoy ourselves oblige.
The Wife asked, "Would you like to go to your grandparents' for the night?"
The Boy nodded and replied, "I could use some time away from you people."
I can't fault him for stating the obvious. I actually admire his wisdom at such an early age.
This award comes from Nonna at Nonna's Nonsense. I would like to thank her sincerely for it and apologize for taking so long in getting around to acknowledge it. Stop by and check her out if you get a chance. I really do like this award because it emphasizes the community of blogging. Here it is:
“These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who
must may choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”
Okay, so I changed a word in there because I never give awards and expect people to pass them on. I only give awards out to people that I enjoy reading and that's that. If you choose to pass it on, great. If not, just as great. No pressure, just props for the reads that I like.
Also, charming? This is not a word that I generally use, but there it is, somewhat out of place on my blog...sigh. The perils of copy and paste.
Now for the victims:
Miss Grace @ Miss Grace's Disgrace.
CK @ Creative Kerfuffle.
Khadra @ Crab Goggles.
Weasel Momma @ World of Weasels.
Stacey @ Is There Any Mommy Out There?
Laura @ Living Laura.
Sarah @ Sarah's Blogtastic Adventures.
Bern @ Bernthis.com.
I'll get around to notifying everyone they got the award but I'm too lazy right now. Hopefully, they'll just figure it out all be themselves.
and that's a wrap...
