What's the funniest thing your child has ever done or said?

Once, I was looking for a map on the computer. My son, who was 3 at the time, came up to ask what I was doing. Here is a transcript of the conversation:

Son: Momma, what are you doing?
Me: Looking for a map since I don’t know where we’re going.
Son: Is that because you are a dumbass?

After I got the giggles under control, we had a long talk about appropriate words.

What always makes you laugh?

My kids always make me laugh. So does my husband. I married him because he completely cracks me up. I can always rely on his perspective to keep me laughing.

I also am always slayed by the commenters on Crassparenting and at They are seriously some of the funniest people I have ever come across. The comic relief from these two related communities has gotten me through my toughest moments in the last several years.

What's the funniest gift you've ever received?

My friends and I do White Elephant gift party. One year, I got the gift everyone passes around: A nutcracker that is in the shape of a nude woman. You crack the nuts by pulling her legs apart. It is very classy. It’s not something I let the kids use, but it still cracks me up.

What unhealthy eating habits or cravings have you developed since becoming a mom? Please include a picture if it's relevant.

Cookies and goldfish crackers! The goldfish aren't so bad but if I keep eating them, then I'm in trouble. Also, the Easter baskets are trouble. I've never been able to control myself when it comes to jelly beans.

Are your kids hooked on a toy, clothing item, or style trend that makes you crazy? If so, tell us why and share a picture!

My daughter has gotten in the Winx girls. It drives me sort of nuts but it makes my son INSANE.
