What makes you special?(not a debate)

[deleted account] ( 92 moms have responded )

The year is coming to an end. Its time to reflect on this past year, instead of the year, why not reflect on ourselves? Moms are notorious for putting other people first. Their family, work, even their pets come before their own needs. Most of us never actually take the time to appreciate our own uniqueness and the good qualities we bring to our family. We never stop to think about who we are or how we feel. Maybe we should turn our view inside us and see what makes us...us. So what is it that makes you a great mom? What do you give your family no one else can? It doesn't matter if you answer this here for all of us to see. Answer it for yourself. We are all unique in our own way. What makes you so special?

@ Dana, you obviously need to work on your encouragement skills, your slightly lacking in that area! ;P

My hubby says I'm special because I can put up with him=)

The one thing I give my family that no one else can IS me. I can forgive anyone for anything, so far anyways.
And thats about it so far...

I understand, Julianne. Sorry :/ (PS. I only remember marking 2, but then again, I haven't slept very much in the last 3 days..) I only remembered the 2.

And I know marking it as nice would have been.. Nice lol. But it made me giggle, so I thought 'funny' was best suited. :)

Hey, Nikki! I wanna know who clicked 'funny' under your last comment about me needing to be more encouraging?

What makes me special? Well, I do have a slightly inappropriate sense of humour that people seem to appreciate. Other than that, I can wiggle my ears, flare my nostrils, am a walking thesaurus, and can whistle so loudly that I've been known to hail a cab from 6 blocks away.

Please note how "Nice" is my lowest number.

I'm really not surprised.

@christina, after the incident, its only logical i would see you doing that as an insult. Since it was 4 funnies.. Thats what people do here to show you they disagree sometimes. If you wanted to make a mense, "nice" or something would have been a good start. :P Thank you for clarifying. Hope there's no hard feelings in the future.

Clearly I need to work on being nicer....
But at least I am encouraging when I'm not being nice or funny or helpful.
Merry Christmas eve day everyone!!!
I think you're all funny sometimes. And Funny HA HA not the other kind of "funny". (the kind where something is funny strange or funny weird or funny fucked up.)
Tis the season to be nice, so I'll start by saying "I'm NICE. Damnit, I know I'm NICE" It just doesn't come across on COM that much, but just so you all know, I AM NICE!!!"
So there. :P
P.S.
I can suck on my nipples, not just lick them. ;)

LOL!! You know what's funny.. Every time I smile real big and giggle, my ears wiggle on their own. I can't seem to stop it!

Licking nipples and wiggling eyeballs....???? I can wiggle my ears (with no hands).

[deleted account]

@Carol, I think you might be my twin.

@Loureen, I can lick my nipple and nose too!

Hmmm, what makes me special? I make excellent cupcakes. I can get up off the ground carrying two 10 month olds. I can spell a word backwards without using paper. I rock Singstar. I can write neatly with both hands. I can set the clock on my MIL's car (no one else can). I know the capital city to most countries in the world. I'm one of the most relaxed parents out there (without crossing the line to negligent). Oh and I'm modest LOL

It was I that marked Julianne's posts as funny- well 2 of them, anyway. The first one I feel I should explain why, the second, well.. It was pretty funny. That one was about the grammar.



But the first one made me laugh b/c of two things. First, this:

"I am special because no one does it like I do :D Haahaha"



Didn't know what it was supposed to mean, but she laughed and it made me laugh.



And also b/c my oldest sister's good friend works at a 4 star restaurant.. You don't hear of many people on here that do, and it made me think of the song 'It's a small world after all, it's a small world after all, it's a small world after all, it's a small, small world!' That made me giggle :)



Dana, how did you know it was me?



*Edited to add: Sorry you took offense, Julianne.*

[deleted account]

You ARE funny! Haha, I got every single notification for every single one of my posts that you marked funny. AWESOME!

Julianne I'm going to mark like five of your posts as funny so you can rival Carol as the CoM comedian of the year.

Ah, well then. That person is an ass!

I had someone doing that to me for months. They were trying to piss me off, but now, if you look at my profile, it looks like I'm the most hilarious person on COM. At least 50% of my posts are funny. So really, they're just making you look good in the long run. While making themselves look like a jerk.

[deleted account]

It wasn't those two carol :P someone doesn't like me very much. You can mark as many of my posts as funny as you want. Fill your boots ;)

Julianne, the two posts of yours that I see marked as funny do have "funny" bits in them, at least as I saw it. Although I wasn't the one who marked them as such. The one about grammar is sort of scary and thinking about those kids who can't spell anything not in text speak is rather amusing. And the part about "living outside the box" may be true, but it's a funny way to say it. I actually thought of marking it as funny as a compliment, not to be insulting. Remember, we've all got different senses of humor. But I promise never to mark your posts as funny, even if I think they are ;-)


Now, as for what makes me special:

1) I'm double jointed in my thumbs and my hips. My thumbs can rest comfortably in two positions, and I can actually sleep in the lotus position with my head on my feet.

2) I can read backwards and upside down fluently and quickly.

3) One day you will see me break Ken Jenning's Jeopardy win record. I am brimming with useless factoids about all sorts of subjects. It startles, shocks, frightens, disturbs amuses, and impresses people. Depending on the useless factoid I choose to dispense.

4) I try very hard not to use it on COM, it does not translate that well in text, but my sarcasm is legendary. I am actually striving to contain it as a mother. Parenting by snark is not a positive teaching tool. My husband loves it though. That and my deep affection for his favorite show, WKRP in Cincinnati. He wooed me with quotes from Les Nessman.

meh, I'll just brush it off, because that's something i do that makes me special :P

I dont understand why people need to mark your comments as funny, when nothing is funny about it. Thats just rude.

I am fluent in sign language and taught my son. I am currently teaching him how to call for help on the phone. He can identify the numbers 1-3 on sight. #2 is my husband and #3 is my mother. Today, I was feeling a little ill. I told him to call my Mom...he got right on it! I am amazed and happy he can do this...it is the next best thing to learning 911 (i don't want to teach him yet because then he might call them for fun or just because. He is only 2) He also tells me when someone is knocking on the door and when the kettle is going off in the kitchen!! :)
