Oh My Gawd Sodagirl!
Is the mail here yet?

May 16, 2006

My 10 year old is having his named changed…to Dennis. And by Dennis, I mean Menace. I’m not even kidding. Okay, I’m kidding but I’m tempted.

On Sunday, we basically spent it hanging out at home, watching movies, bbq’ing and generally being lazy. The kids of course went outside at some point, bike riding and running around.

My daughter was minding her own business, when Mr. B himself brooched her with an idea. He wanted her to join him up on top of the mailbox. She wasn’t sure, she said, but he said it would be fun, so she hesitantly agreed.

He went over to my husband’s shed and grabbed one of his ladders and took it to the mailbox. He told Maddy she should climb up first since she was smaller. What the hell that has to do with anything, I’m not sure, but she did it anyway. Once she was up, bike helmet and all, he removed the ladder and ran back to the shed with it and then begin to laugh hysterically. The next thing we hear is:

“Mooooooooommm!!!!!!!! I’m stuck! I can’t get down!!!!!!!!”

I go out and see Maddy sitting on top of the mailbox with her bike helmet on. My husband comes out and tells her that we’ll see her on Monday when the mail lady comes. Well this sends her into an even bigger frenzy.

“I don’t want to wait until the mail lady comes! What if bugs get on me? What if it rains? What if I get hungry? What if someone thinks I’m their mail? I want to get down!!!!!!!!!”

Meanwhile, Ryan is running around, laughing like a crazy person. I’m quite certain, we’re the laughing stock of our cul de sac or close to it for sure. People probably think we’re raising monkeys because some days, it sure feels like it.

My 18 year old finally goes out and rescues miss and then we proceed to chase Mr. B around, trying our best to tame him. So far it’s not working. Maybe I will get the paperwork for that name change…………….

  1. Aww….poor thing! Funny….lol Sounds like something I would have done to my brother. hehehe

    I once convinced him that if he took a pillow and put it in his shirt, then ran down the hallway with a baseball bat and jumped into the door that it wouldn’t hurt. WAaahahaha…I’m almost CERTAIN he broke a rib or two…hehehe Good thing mom was home so I could calm down his crying so I didn’t get in trouble. :P

  2. Years from now she’s going to start her own blog called, ‘Stranded Mail’.

    At least the 18 year old went out to rescue her. That should cut down on the sibling trauma.

  3. LMAO!!
