Joke Day


OK now it is Joke day Monday..


In the earlier post is a joke from my friend Tamera. She sent it to me the other day and I laughed so hard I almost wet myself (I KNOW TMI)... But really it was cute so I had to post it here.


So of course as soon as I post it my good friend Layla and one of the funniest people I know commented with a funny story she heard on the Ellen DeGeneres show. She said "No need to post I just had to share" But it is to good so I am posting it here and now I think I want all my other funny friends to send me jokes so I can post them too... Maybe I will do this each Monday if you all are funny enough LOL....


Thanks Layla .....

Here is her story


I am sure you've heard this one. Ellen DeGeneres read this story on her show last Mother's Day. No need to post it...just wanted to share it with you. Have a great day. So, we had this great 10 year old cat named Jack who just recently died. Jack was a great cat and the kids would carry him around and sit on him and nothing ever bothered him. He used to hang out and nap all daylong on this mat in our bathroom. Well, we have 3 kids and at the time of this story they were 4 years old, 3 years old and 1 year old. The middle one is Eli. Eli really loves chapstick. LOVESIT. He kept asking to use my chapstick and then losing it. So finally one day I showed him where in the bathroom I keep my chapstick and how he could use it whenever he wanted to but he needed to put it right back in the drawer when he was done. Last year on Mother's Day, we were having the typical rush around and try to get ready for Church with everyone crying and carrying on. My two boys are fighting over the toy in the cereal box. I am trying to nurse my little one at the same time I am putting on my make-up. Everything is a mess and everyone has long forgotten that this is a wonderful day to honor me and the amazing job that is motherhood. We finally have the older one and the baby loaded in the car and I am looking for Eli. I have searched everywhere and I finally round the corner to go into the bathroom. And there was Eli. He was applying my chapstick very carefully to Jack's . . . rear end. Eli looked right into my eyes and said "chapped." Now if you have a cat, you know that he is right--their little butts do look pretty chapped. And, frankly, Jack didn't seem to mind. And the only question to really ask at that point was whether it was the FIRST time Eli had done that to the cat's behind or the hundredth. And THAT is my favorite Mother's Day moment ever because it reminds us that no matter how hard we try to civilize these glorious little creatures, there will always be that day when you realize they've been using your chapstick on the cat's butt.

Monday is the perfect day for joke day- great idea. I just LOVE this story. Mason loves to use Luke's chapstick/lip baum. Luke keeps it in his "man drawer" in the garage along with his keys, cell phone/ charger, dental floss, Ipod, spare change etc. Mason just goes and uses it whenever he wants. When I first heard this story I couldn't wait to share it with him. Luke didn't use chapstick for about a week and then he found a hiding spot for his BRAND NEW chapstick. Last night Luke couldn't find his dental floss. Hmmmmm...
