Bring it on!

That’s what I’m talkin’ about! My youngest child is already portraying characteristics of Christ… Bare buns and all… One of the most important things to teach your child is how to serve. “Am I right or am I right? Right? Right?” (Movie?) Seriously, though, if people are prepared to serve others no matter what then everything else will work itself out!

How proud can a mother be when her own child willingly washes the dishes? I’m so proud I’m going to write her a sweet little poem.

Oh, darling dearest,
Bring it on!
You asked to wash my dishes
And I say, “Bring it on!”

You started out so selfish
Oh, darling, bring it on!
All you wanted was milk from my breasts
And again I said, “Bring it on!”

Then you got a little bigger and brought sunshine into my day
Bring it on. Bring it on!
You learned to speak and bless our souls
Darling dearest, bring it on!

And now I witness you scrubbing so hard
Oh, baby, bring it on!
Sending water all over the place
I’ll live, so bring it on!

Be like Jesus. Wash my dishes!

I hate to have a row right on your website with a man I have only met a few times...but I'm pretty sure that "groudhog" is one word. Therefore it would be, "Groundhog Day" so do I win your competition? What do I win?

I have to admit that the picture was a little hard for me to take because Izzy looks older than I remember her only months ago. That is very sad. I thought we agreed that you children and my child would not grow an inch while we were away...what happened to that? Oh well. Hey, baby Miles is only weeks away!!!

You are correct, "groudhog" could be considered one word. However, difficulties arise when you take into account that "groudhog" isn't even a word. Did you mean "grouNdhog"?

Before you decide to make fun of my friend, Ike, use your freaking spellcheck. Moron!

I guess I should reread my posts every so often. I was like,"what the hell?" Why is everyone talking about Groundhog Day? Man, it's just so engrained into my way of thinking, using movie lines all the time...

OH yeah??????? Jen, you're always bragging about your kids like they're the best or something. Whatever. Ella can pee in her own potty seat and dump it in the toilet, avoiding MOST drips and spills (or at least tipping the container toward her torso so as to absorb the spill on her clothing) and then flush it all down the toilet. She EVEN washes it out with soap in the sink and washes her hands afterwards, and rarely has any poop smears in her buns... by the way, about buns... Tara, you've obviously neglected to remember what my own buns look like.

I can't wait for the day when Jonesy can run around in his bare buns! It seems so restricting to always have a diaper on. Everyone needs a little freedom now and again.

arwen said...

um.... why do you make people do your dishes that have no business doing them? there are laws against that sort of thing, you know....

Jen said...

Oh, yah, Arwen? Well, why don't you get your little buns over here and wash my dishes? There's no law against that and I am sick and tired of not having a dish washer(machine not a person)!

Adam Wolfgang said...

I don't see what all the big fuss is, doesn't everyone do dishes naked? I do.

kaydub said...

Ned? Ned Ryerson? Needle nose Ned? Ned that dated my sister, Patsy? Ned that did the ol' belly whistler gag? Bing again!

And, Aaron, what's the point to sign in "Anonymous" if you're gonna sign your name at the bottom anyway?

And speaking of bottoms, YIKES, I just think cute buns MUST be genetic!

arwen said...

you only want me to do your dishes because I am brown. that is so Texas of you... go vote for Bush or something.

:) I like you.

arwen said...
