It seems all members of my household are on some sort of never ending Crazybus ride.
Let me give you a few “heard around our house this week” quotes to illustrate:
Setting 1: Changing Sawyer on main floor, the Crazies are upstairs and quiet.
Me- Guys… what are you doing? (If you don’t know it is better not to ask. Apparently I have not learned this lesson.)
McKenna- Parker is putting his leg in the toilet and I am flushing. He is not going down.
Setting 2: All three of the little ones are playing with their train table, I’m cleaning up the mine field around them which has left me with my back to them for several minutes. The eyes in the back of my head were closed as well…
Parker- Choo Woo, everyone go around the poo. Choo Woo.
Me- WHAT?? Did someone poop ON the train table.
McKenna- No, Parker pooped on the train TRACK.
Parker- Choo Woo.
Setting 3: Just finished dropping off Ashlyn to drive with her grandma for a weekend with her dad’s family. She was a tad on the mouthy/cranky/you-screwed-with-my-schedule side during the drive. Parker began his turn at whining two seconds after the teenage whining exited the car.
McKenna- Parker you have to be nice.
Parker- No I don’t.
McKenna- Yes you do or Mommy will stop and give you to another car just like she did to Sissy.
(Not a bad business idea huh? Kids getting cranky, whining, making your ears ring in the car? No problem, call a minivan nanny who will promptly pick up your children at the site of your impending nervous breakdown and take them to your next destination, giving you time to drive in peace and maybe even listen to your own radio station.)
Wondering who is the driver of our Crazybus?
See for yourself.
No need to worry about toys made in China. Fruit is cheap labor.
Banana lost his job yesterday. Grape was hired today.
I was thinking of serving applesauce tomorrow but may have to change my plan.
And yes, that picture of Ms. Fashion Plate should be in black and white to shelter your eyes from her clothing selections but I felt it added to the whole “Crazybus” theme.
Before I go I have to take a minute to thank some very thoughtful ladies. I was given three, yes three, awards this week and a gift.
from Jennifer at Midwest Momments and from Finding My New Normal
from MJ at Everyone Knows Me Here.
Why, on earth, would anyone thing I need a martini????
Last, but certainly not least, a very talented woman I just met, thought of my family and made this.
Beautiful isn’t it? The symbolism within it makes me want to just stare at it all day. Kim is not a blogger but a very talented designer with a big heart, you can visit her company facebook page here.

I love this post, Parker is so funny!
I'm still laughing…my god that was to funny.
I don't know why she'd think you needed a martini, I would have just handed you the bottle of gin! LOL On our own crazy bus here too. Apparently good behavior is so difficult that once it is all used up, the crzies not only come out, they are exponential as there is nothing left to mediate the behavior. I did laugh at the toilet flushing in particular, mine at the moment are still more interested in the sink, which has its own attendant problems.
Eeek, good luck with the sink, although not as gross as the toilet, there
are all kinds of possibilities with that one!
Allison R says
LOL i totally love setting #1 🙂
Roflmbo.. THOSE are the days I don't miss.. but do get a good chuckle out of when I see what other moms are going through.. I had to bust a gut at the toilet one. Love her outfit too cute I mean geesh mom stylish..
Glad it made you laugh and glad you have made it through these days in one
piece, there is hope for me then, I guess!
Amy @ mommetime says
I needed a good laugh thank you…flushing of the toiled caused me to laugh out loud! thankfully said leg is still in tack…kids rock! Amy
I drove past a place called "Choo Choo Chocolates" today. Their name took on a whole new meaning reading Setting #2.
That is hilarious, maybe they need a spokesperson.
Hahaha! The first "incidence" sounded all too familiar! Well… so did the second… and the third! Don't worry honey, we are ALL riding our own crazy buses. 😉
You are so good at making me laugh! I love it!
Mama Be Good says
You missed a golden opportunity by not photographing the poo! Think of the bribery potential for later years!
Leigh Ann says
Minivan Nanny…Genius! Congrats on the awards!
Your new button is gorgeous, I love it!
We frequently ride the crazybus here- in fact- we have three of those little buses and my crazy 8 yr old often wears them as rollerskates @@
That is hysterical, thank you so much for sharing and brightening my day 🙂
I seem to live at Crazy Bus Depot. They come and go all day long.
Oh my goodness your children are SO cute! Than you so much for your very kind comment and you can give me a hug any time 🙂
Sarah Halstead says
lol. hilarious!! i love her outfit. that design is awesome. she is so talented.
Yep, talented in the art of tacky dressing!
Heather @ I See Thro says
hahaha I was cracking up at all of these stories! I love the flushing Parker's leg down the toilet!
I really need a minivan nanny! My girls have been known to go nuts in the car, and I have had to pull over because they are screaming or crying or whatever. Congrats on the awards! 🙂
I now feel sure we are destined to be friends
Finding MyNew Normal says
Is it a bad sign that I laughed hardest at the poop on the track part?? I guess it shows my current level of maturity. Hope you made your hubby clean that up!
Laughed out loud at the car threat, but oohhh I like it!! Well done on the awards and that button is just beautiful, perfect for you 🙂 Jen
