What We Did This Week -- The Insanity Post

It was a busy week in MommyLand...Kate has jumped back into the work fray, just in time to see that dude from New York show the world WAAAAAAAAY too much of himself. See, that's the funny thing. Kate has two boys, and she sorta goes to work so she can get away from boys who are fascinated with their own penises. How nice of Anthony Weiner to make it where even work isn't safe from such things.
It's about thiiiiiis tiny...

Here's the other thing on that subject, and we're pretty sure we speak for nearly all women when we say this: Gentlemen, please pay attention. We do not want to see pictures of your junk. Your thing is kinda like the engine inside my car. We need it to work; we prefer a little high performance, and we never, ever feel the need to lift the hood and take a good long look at the mechanics. Got it?

One more thing: We have to say we were a little disappointed that he didn't show up holding a bag of frozen peas on his balls. Mrs. Weiner, we have a pair of Squaring Up shoes if you need them. And, trust us when we tell you that you really need them. Just ask Elin.

Lydia is still house hunting...and found the perfect place. With the notable exception that it's next door to Ricky and the Bouncy Haus. While the idea of having constant access to fun kid bouncy things and sticky snow cone equipment and possibly rabid dogs sounds appealing, it also means she would be living next door to Ricky. We'd like to think the Cap'n will have a problem with this...

Over at Parents Connect, we're reminding parents once again -- now that it's summery and warm and park season again -- that there are RULES at the playground.

And, as if we're not being bossy enough, we spent six full minutes of super important TV talk time when we were on TBD to talk about the fact that there are also rules at the swimming pool. But the thing you'll learn the most? That we can pile a LOT of really inappropriate words into a TV appearance.

xoxo Kate and Lydia

  1. Yes, I too, was quite impressed with the Long Duk Dong reference - may have been my favorite. I've been reading your blog for about a week - it inspired a rant on my own blog ( and I must say I love your blog. It is by far my favorite blog to read - where have I been all this time??? So glad I've found it!

  2. I absolutely love the "rules for the pool". We LIVE at the pool in the summer and I am constantly complaining about the same things! I teach my kids manners, why don't you teach your kids the same manners? If our pool toys are all put away, that does not mean you can help yourself to our bag and pull out whatever you want. . . Don't get me started on teens and the baby pool!

    Why yes, I have gotten dirty looks from fancy moms who don't actually watch their kids as I tell their kids not to drip all over my towels trying to dig in our pool bag. . . TOO BAD!

  3. Ugh did you hear that Weiner's wife is pregnant? That just makes him all the more douchetastic.

  4. Excellent on the whole scantily clad tween/teens - beware of texts from congressmen! Thanks for the laugh of the day!!! :) And why does their mother think it's ok to drop them off at the pool looking like that? Moms, THINK ABOUT IT.

  5. Ha. Love how she calls it "lazy days at the pool" That chick clearly doesn't have children.

  6. I love that you fit pianist in there! I may have to use that myself while driving.....

  7. I have loved your writing for a long time, but THIS is your BEST quote ever.

    "Your thing is kinda like the engine inside my car. We need it to work; we prefer a little high performance, and we never, ever feel the need to lift the hood and take a good long look at the mechanics." GENIUS!!!

  8. awesome. awesome awesome awesome. totally awesome-sauce. loved the long duck dong reference!

  9. Whuck? I wanted to see the televised Lydia v. Kate Pajama Jean Smackdown.

  10. @ Val, the clip is there. When part one finishes, look for Rants 2 in the little clips in the box...the debate over the merits of the pajama jeans vs real jeans and clogs vs Choos is hysterical!
