Final Meme

I got memed. I got it bad. First, the lovely and beautiful Jen at Coconut Belly tagged me. Then I turned around and the holy-crap-I-don't-know-how-she-does-it-all-and-remains-totally-awesome Krystal of Mommy's Escape tagged me.

It's a picture meme. You know the drill, yada yada sixth file, yada yada sixth picture....blamo. So I thought I'd play along. Then as I was rifling through my photos, I found this one and decided to try to be a little more like Sarah Palin and live life as though I were a maverick. I began wearing trendy eye wear and engaging in strange double speak. I also cut bangs and wore the most festive little skirt suits you ever did see.

Not really, I just became Sarah Palin in the "bucking the system" way and decided I liked this photo much better than the sixth one in my sixth file.



It's Henners sitting on his mini potty trying his hardest to will a stream of pee out. Why is he trying so hard you ask? Visit this post back in the day to find out. It's all about a night that a three-year old had his way with me.

Also, props to Coconut Belly and Krystal. Go check out their photo memes. Jen's was a wonderful vacation story and Krystal's...well, her's made me have a long cry in the bathroom by myself.

P.S.: I totally thought it would be okay to post a potty picture since Captain Dumbass does it all the time.

P.P.S.: Since I'm dropping linky love, Jen Maselli wrote about diarrhea yesterday.

P.P.P.S.: Ringleader taught me how to spell Dee Snyder. That's right, of Twisted Sister.

P.P.P.P.S.: The Tattoed Minivan Mom gets people cat-calling mean things at her. In turn, she takes it out on me by shouting "HOOKER" when she emails me.

P.P.P.P.P.S.: I'm not passing this meme on. I'm flushing it down Henry's training potty. It's gone forever. If it somehow gets passed on to you, don't touch it. It's been in my son's toilet.

FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

blissfullycaffeinated said...

Yes! My dream has come true. Long have I been striving, desperate to attain my goal. And damn it, I did it. I told you Captain Dumbass, I told you. I am first. Finally, I am the first commenter at the Steenky Bee. This is almost better than winning the jump rope contest in 6th grade. Almost, but not quite. Yes! I'm a winner!

blissfullycaffeinated said...

Oh, I almost forgot.

You are such a maverick. You don't even need bangs and rimless glasses and shiny suits.

And that picture of Henry is priceless.

goodfather said...

WHAO - that's a lot of caffeine at 11:51 PM - not judging. I'm just, you know, fourth.

Awesome potty pic. I would pay money to see the festive skirt suit. Not kidding.

Tara@From Dawn Till Rusk said...

Aww that poor little chap. Fancy his mummy posting a picture of him on his potty for the world to see. It's a good job he's so darn cute.
Still can't be as bad as the story Stiletto Mom is telling about poo.
Sheesh, what is it with your people!

Heinous said...

He's gonna love when that pic comes up in later years. We have a few of my son laying around. I'm not posting them yet though. Maybe when he 15 or so.

Sherendipity said...

It's not even 8 o'clock in the morning, yet. I thought for sure I'd be higher than #7.
Damn you late night posters.

Carolyn...Online said...

Dude, you need some Penicillin for the amount of times you've been tagged lately.

The Stiletto Mom said...

What time of day does a girl have to get up to be first around here? Jen M must have been mainlining coffee all night waiting for you to post...look at that...three posts in a row...sheesh.
Henners is totally going to break out his little man kung fu moves if he figures out you posted that adorable pic! I think for sure you should also bring it to his wedding for some type of display, I have many many of my kids that I plan to torture them with.
He's so cute, trying to get it right! Potty training is tough work man!

DeeMarie said...

HOOKER!! Can I call you that too? Cause it just sounds fun. I love Henners look of concentration. And I think I should get some 5-minute warning before you post so I can be first!! :) Buenos Dias, mi hermana (did you see on HP's, I speak SPANISH too!!)

Sprite's Keeper said...

Even if you flush it down Henry's potty, don't you still have to clean it?! Cute picture of Henry, love his eyes!!! STOP THE MEME MADNESS!!

Casey said...

That is the best bathroom face ever. Congrats blissfullycaffeinated, being first will change your life, I swear to god. It's all about winning.

Captain Dumbass said...

I can't even say first in PST because goodfather is in my time zone. Whatever. WHATEVER!

There is a lot of great material in the bathroom. Just keep the shots above the waistline and it's all good.

Jenni said...

Serously, the expressions on Henry's face kill me.

And you were right, it was the best debate. I caught the end. I think I saw steam coming out of McCain's ears. And the blinking. OH MY GOD the blinking.

Jennifer said...

How very mavericky to veer off the meme like that and choose a different pic! Great pic and great story!!

for a different kind of girl said...

Henry...oh, I love that kid! His face and those expressions!

A weary world thanks you for your efforts to abolish the meme! I have no more strange things about me. That's what I tell myself, anyway. I'm really just a tumor of strange.

Krystal said...

oh wow!! I need to start taking the camera to the bathroom when the kids go - these potty shots are way too funny!!!

Ron said...

That picture is freakin' hysterical! I mean it looks just like the expression the women made at McDonalds when I walked into the wrong restroom.

When I talk on the phone to my boys, sometimes they'll be going on about something and mid sentence go "nnnnnnn aaaaah!" then they continue with their story. When I ask them what just happened I'm told casually, "Oh just takin' a poop while we chat."

ali said...

To Goodfather: Although you are the 4th comment, you are the SECOND person to comment. That makes you the BEST of us losers:)

ali said...

Ooops, I forgot to add, bangs and naturally curly hair do not mix. I know from experience.

Rhea said...

that picture rocks!! his expression...hehe

Cape Cod Gal said...

How come I'm always in the 20's! I need to start sleeping with my laptop

Love the pic! The poor thing needs a book so he can relax a bit. It might help.

gingela5 said...

Cute picture! I can't believe you bucked the system. I sort of cheated in mine too because the real sixth picture was another picture of that lovely meat burrito from Nebraska! No one wants to see that again.

Pamela said...

It's so kind and considerate of your Henry to wear some sort of clothing whilst he pretends to pee. My Henry MUST BE NAKED!!!!! OR HE CAN'T DO IT!!!!! Come to think of it? Jack was the same way. Weirdos. They must be watching their daddy...because I TOTALLY use it with my clothes on. In the appropriate places, and lacking in the appropriate places.

Slippery slope. I'm outskees.

TattooedMinivanMom said...

That's weird. I make that same face when I push my pee out.

And how come people are mentioning penicillin in your comments?? Are you telling everyone about that "thing" I gave you?? Dammit! You told me you wouldn't! You cheap HOOKER!!

Prostituta!! (I can speak Spanish too.)

Chris Wood said...

Potty pictures? Oh hey, if he's that thoughtful, I think that should be shared!

Kat said...

I have a feeling you and I have a beat down coming when our kids find the pictures we have posted on the internet. Just sayin'!

HeatherPride said...

What was the real sixth photo? That's what I want to know. Probably somebody was nekkid.

Shamelessly Sassy said...

adorable photo!

Sammanthia said...

Ryerson wanted me to take a video of him pooping on the potty... we're all about lettin' the cameras roll in our house. They're gonna kill me when they're older (and, no, in case you're wondering, I didn't take THAT particular video. Some things are just better left untaped. I wish someone would tell that to Paris Hilton).
