TGI Friday Open Thread: How Are You Getting Your Superbowl On Plus This Week’s Question From Julia

165516765I love the Superbowl! I love the commercials and the food and the booze. Also, I don’t hate football but I have no dog in this fight so let’s talk about food instead.

Are you going to watch the game? If so, are you going somewhere or are you having a party at your place? If so, what are you making because.. food.

I’ll prepare and buy a mess of yummy stuff including wings (sorry vegans) and we will flip between the game and the PUPPY BOWL because PUPPIES and even my kids get into it because it’s just a fun time where we all hang out together.

If you loathe Superbowl Sunday what are you doing instead?

Please include food information. This is where you give me all of your fabulous dip recipes.

Plus, Julia has a very important question this week for all of you readers:

“What the most fucked up thing your kid has ever said?”

I’ll start. I’m not sure this qualifies as F’d up, but once at dinner my middle son, who was about six at the time, was asking questions like “Who is God?” and my daughter, who was about four, interrupted and said: “A WIZARD GOD IS A DEAD WIZARD.”

I have no idea where she got that from, but it sort of works.

OK, so food and fucked up kid exclamations. Go Go Go Go. OH and also, if you could, I am begging here, LIKE us on Facebook, and make your friends LIKE us too, because you guys are so cool and your friends must be cool so you know. Thank you!

      We are going to my mom’s for Superbowl Sunday. I don’t have any fantabulous dip recipes *yet*, but I just realized that is something I need to add to my portfolio here. In my defense, I really only started cooking about six months ago…

      Most fucked up thing my kid ever said…my oldest was three when he turned to my grandmother, who was at that time about 67ish and very “old school”, if you will, and said, “Please pass me the fucking remote.” It is hilarious now, but at the time, I wanted to dig a hole in the backyard and bury myself in it.

      • Bunny Lucia

        I heard the call. I saw the Bunny signal in the sky.

        What kind of dips would you like? I have a million recipes.

      • Kay_Sue

        What are your favorites for parties? I am up for anything! :D

      • Bunny Lucia

        Here’s a great spinach and artichoke dip:
        1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and coarsely chopped
        1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach (thawed and drained)
        1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
        2 Tablespoons sour cream
        2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
        1/2 cup shredded parmesan
        1 small garlic clove, minced (Which turns into a half teaspoon if you buy yours pre-minced)
        dash of cayenne pepper, or more to taste

        1. Preheat oven to 400 degress. In a medium bowl, warm cream cheese in microwave for about a minute to soften. Add spinach, artichokes, sour cream, mayonnaise, and parmesan. Mix all together and add garlic to taste.

        2. Place in an oven safe dish and bake in the oven at for about 20 minutes or until the top is toasty. Sprinkle with Cayenne pepper to taste

        Amazing 7 (Well, TECHNICALLY 8) layer dip

        (from top to bottom)
        Chopped tomatoes
        Shredded Mexican blend cheese
        Chopped black olives
        Chopped Green chilis
        Corn
        Take one cup of sour cream and mix it with a packet of taco seasoning
        (GOOD, THE FATE OF THIS DIP DEPENDS ON HIGH QUALITY) Guacamole
        Refried beans

        A few comments down I suggested Olives on top of the cheese but I just realized that that wouldn’t be very aesthetically pleasing, so only tomatoes on top of cheese from now on!

      • Kay_Sue

        Saved! :D

      • Holly

        Those are my 2 favorite go-to appetizer recipes. :)

    • Bethany Ramos

      I am basically missing Super Bowl because I’m on a girls trip this weekend. Wish me luck! I probably should stop Interneting now ha ha. But I will miss you guys… I think I have said this before, but my two-year-old was using the word cock instead of rock and sock. For some reason he was stuck on that one, and I didn’t discourage it…

      • Julia Sonenshein

        we miss you already b

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        we do, you should see what we did on Facebook. we are evil

      • Bethany Ramos

        I miss you all! And I SAW and I’m dying!!!!

    • JD

      My four year old made a picnic on the dining room floor and her two year old brother tripped over it. She yelled, “Fuckin’ cheesies, man!”

      I said, “What did you say?” And she shrugged, “Fuckin’ cheesies?” I am assuming she heard our foul-mouthed neighbor say f-ing Jesus. Anyway, I told her we don’t talk like that and she just said, “Yeah, I didn’t think so.”

      We do the Superbowl at our friends’ house every year. I usually bring homemade hummus, guac and buffalo chicken dip. And none of the other wives in our group like football, so they play with my kids while my husband and I watch the game!

      • Kay_Sue

        It’s so nice to have someone to play with the kids. We just ignore ours for game time. Check in at half time, that’s fine right? Right? :-p

      • JD

        Totally fine! We would ignore them for sure if our friends didnt play with them! We also just psych them into thinking they are really into whatever sport we are watching at any given time and that usually works for about ten or fifteen minutes. I think they are afraid to disappoint us. :/

      • Kay_Sue

        Manipulating that emotional connection. Nice. *high fives* ;)

      • Julia Sonenshein

        “Fuckin’ cheesies” is my new exclamation.

      • http://mother--bored.tumblr.com/ Aimee Ogden

        I’m going to start saying “fucking cheesies” as a matter of habit. Love her response to you, though. JUST CHECKING, AUNTIE.

      • EX

        I just lol’ed literally. Which does not happen often. Fuckin cheesies is the best.

      • Rachel

        “Fuckin’ cheesies.” Epic. LOVE.

    • http://www.twitter.com/ohladyjayne allisonjayne

      Oooh I’ve got one from this week!
      Kid – “There’s a ghost, and it’s walking, and it’s going to EAT ME!”
      Me – “huh? Was this….in your dream?”
      Kid – “No, it’s gonna happen tomorrow”
      Cue me secretly being completely paranoid the next day that my kid is psychic and going to, y’know. This was last week so I think we’re safe now.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        HAHAHAHA OMG DEMON HOUSE INDIANA ACTION

    • Alane

      By NOT having a baby, like I did last year (yes, my water broke an hour before kickoff. The hospital staff kept trying to tell me I didn’t “have” to have the game on, but I could not have cared any less. My husband was very attentive, but how much can you hold my hand and ask if I’m ok?) We’re having a small party for baby girl tomorrow, then nothing on Sunday! Except I might make myself a big pan of taco dip to eat by myself because I’m pregnant again… oops.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        OMG superbowl is YOUR day hahahahahah

      • Kay_Sue

        Please tell me you yelled “touchdown” when the baby came, and then promptly told the nurses, doctors and staff that you were going to Disney World, because that would be epic. :-P

      • Alane

        Great, now this whole story just seems like a giant missed opportunity…

      • Kay_Sue

        Dammmmit! I have to ruin everything. :(

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter
      • EX

        Well if I have my baby on her due date (ie Sunday) I will now be fully prepared for how to respond. So maybe you haven’t ruined everything after all!

      • Kay_Sue

        Yessssss! I will be crossing my fingers.

    • http://mother--bored.tumblr.com/ Aimee Ogden

      Dying over WIZARD GOD.

      As for Superb Owl food, I have just four words:

      bacon

      wrapped

      pizza

      rolls.

      • Kay_Sue

        So, where do you live? I need to go ahead and plan my trip now to make sure I am there in time.

    • http://www.twitter.com/ohladyjayne allisonjayne

      Oh and this one isn’t so much creepy but seriously I love this age (she’ll be 3 in april) so much because the shit they come up with is amazing:
      [background - we're pretending we're on a train aka the couch]
      Kid: “We’re gonna SMASH through the window!”
      Me: “ok. Why?”
      Kid: “Because the train can’t go down the stairs” (we live in a 3rd floor walk-up)
      Me: “Makes sense. So where are we going?”
      Kid: “To our new house”
      Me: “Why? What’s wrong with our house?”
      Kid: “It’s gonna be broken”
      Me: “Why?”
      Kid: “Because we’re gonna SMASH through the window!”

      • pixie

        Makes perfect sense to me.

      • LiteBrite

        Logic. It’s all about logic.

    • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

      Um, hey guys no one noticed my awesomely creepy but delicious feature image :(

    • http://www.twitter.com/ohladyjayne allisonjayne

      Oh, and the amount of shit I give about football ranks somewhere below basically everything else. Sorry Americans/sporty people. Maybe I’ll pick up some mozzarella sticks and watch dinosaur documentaries. Good enough?

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        How can you deny the PUPPY BOWL? what is WRONG with you

      • http://www.twitter.com/ohladyjayne allisonjayne

        I…didn’t know it was a thing I guess? On a related note, I came across this recently and apparently it’s real (I have a friend who goes to this school) and also it’s the best idea ever: http://wpmedia.news.nationalpost.com/2012/11/puppy-room.jpg

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        that is amazingly cool

      • Rachel Sea

        A sometimes co-worker’s university does that at exam time. Pound dogs get socialized, and sometimes adopted, and the students get their blood pressure lowered.

      • http://www.twitter.com/ohladyjayne allisonjayne

        That’s awesome. I think we need to set up a puppy room for all those sad moms on the last STFU post.

      • Kay_Sue

        I enjoy the sport, ’tis true. But my husband is the real fan in our house. When his ex-wife went into labor with their first, he made her wait until the end of the game to go to the hospital.

        It was a preseason game.

        In his defense, he’s not a total asshole (only a little one). She’d been to the hospital several times for false labor, and he was (supposedly) just trying to make sure she was REALLY in labor. Supposedly.

    • MegzWray

      My 3yo daughter is beyond potty trained, but her 4yo cousin is still having trouble. Over Xmas I had my daughter on the toilet and took my niece in there to show her it’s not so scary. I asked niece, “Do you want to sit on the potty?” To which she replied, “No, let’s get the Fuck out of here!”

      Me: trying not to laugh, “What did you say??”
      Niece: “I SAID, LET’S. GET. THE. FUCK. OUT. OF. HERE!”

      I’ll now leave her potty-training up to my red-faced sister.

      • JD

        Looooove this!

    • G.E. Phillips

      Last night, Face very sweetly announced to me that he didn’t have to go to bed yet because he’s a “badass bitch.” So there’s that. He also once got really mad at me and told me if I didn’t stop telling him no, he was going to cover my mouth with my hair. That freaked me out a little.
      I don’t really have Superbowl plans, which is fine with me. Face is going to his uncle’s house with his dad and I will either do nothing or go over to my BFF’s house to drink wine and gossip.
      My go-to dip is Roasted Red Pepper Dip. It’s basically 1 package of cream cheese, 1 cup of sour cream (or plain Greek Yogurt) 2 tablespoons of minced garlic, and one jar of chopped roasted red peppers. Mix. Serve with those yummy pretzel chips.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        OMG I LOVE FACE HE IS THE BADDEST ASS BITCH EVER

      • Alanna Jorgensen

        I think I just hurt myself laughing.

    • CMJ

      Sigh, I think Dude has to cover for sick co-worker. Boring.

      I am chopping all my hair off. That’s my Superbowl :)

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        we need to see this haircut you are considering, and by “we” I mean me and anyone else who wants to see

      • CMJ
      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        That is cute!

      • LiteBrite

        I love the Carey Mulligan cut! I was considering this same cut, but went with the Mandy Moore. But of course it didn’t look a Mandy Moore cut because I don’t look like her.

      • CMJ

        I love Mandy Moore. So hard. I’ve been wanting this cut since I saw that Vogue….I was growing it out for the first time in forever….and now I am tired of my hair.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        But you have GORGEOUS hair show us all your pretty hair

      • CMJ

        I only have like headshots and stupid stuff and feel stupid. :)

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        But but noooo we love youuu

      • Elisa Probert

        That is a super-cute haircut! Hmm. My hair is long enough now that I could actually get it cut into something cute…

    • SA

      Short ribs!!! YUM! Aaaaaand I’ll probably be asleep before kickoff. My kid can’t speak in sentences yet, but can use “Oh shit” appropriately. Whoops.

    • LiteBrite

      I don’t have Superbowl plans because I don’t care about it. Sorry, American football folks. (Well, I’m not that sorry….) I’m supposed to drive to Chicago with a couple of peeps tomorrow, but of course Mother Nature is going to dump 6+ inches of snow on us between tonight and tomorrow afternoon, so no clue how that drive is going to or if it will happen at all.

      This winter blows ass.

      The most fucked up thing my kid ever said? It’s hard because he says a lot of really weird shit. Okay, I thought of something. Three years ago, DH and I were having troubles. It’s a whole long saga, but I had been thinking about leaving if only temporarily. I hadn’t said a word about it to anyone. We were sitting in the living room, and C suddenly looks at me and says, “I don’t want you to leave.” CREEPY.

      As long as he doesn’t walk around saying “I see dead people” we’ll be okay.

    • Mystik Spiral

      I have lived in Denver all my life, so kind of a big deal over here… :) Going to a party, not sure what food I’ll be bringing yet.

      I don’t have kids, but when my oldest nephew was about 4 he LOVED the movie Ghostbusters. We were watching it one day:

      Nephew: “This movie has the baddest word I know in it.”
      Me: “Oh yeah? What word is that?”
      Nephew: Gets a look on his face like “I WANT to tell you, but I don’t know if it’ll get me in trouble…”
      Me: “It’s OK, I’m your aunt, not your mom. You can say any word you want in front of me.”
      Nephew: Looks nervously around, then in the smallest whisper: “Asshole”. Then seemed to wonder why I wasn’t impressed.

      • Elisa Probert

        LOL It took me many years to realize that Ghostbuster also has a penis joke…I’ve loved it since it came out when I was a kid.

      • Bunny Lucia

        That’s when you’re supposed to gasp and pretend to fall over backwards!!! You did it wrong and your nephew will forever be traumatized.

    • pixie

      I’m probably going to creep the internet all day. I do have cable, but I’m usually too lazy to turn on the box and instead hook my computer up to the TV. I’ll probably also pretend I don’t have research to do on my thesis or assignments for my classes. Perhaps I’ll even do some research and assignments.
      I kind of wish I could remember some of the ridiculous things my now 11 year old cousin has said, but unfortunately I can’t.
      Though one of my riding coach’s granddaughters, who was about 4 at the time, was left in my care at a horse show (my coach was busy watching one of the girls riding and her daughter was looking after the little girl’s younger sister) so I was walking her around and getting her to ask people if she could pet their ponies instead of just running up to the horses and petting them. All of a sudden she stopped in her tracks and shouted really loud, “I. HAVE. TO. POOOOOOOP!” I was like, uhhhh, let’s go find your mom. And thankfully I found her really quickly.

    • TwentiSomething Mom

      My son said “I don’t love you and I don’t care if I hurt your feelings”. He’s only 2, and he probably said this because it was a) bedtime and he didn’t want to go to bed b) he couldn’t have anymore cookies c) he thinks I’m a shitty mom and really doesn’t love me.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        It’s the cookies.

      • Kay_Sue

        It’s totally a combination of A/B. I know this, because I’m pretty sure I’ve said something similar to my husband for those exact reasons. True story.

      • TwentiSomething Mom

        I wouldn’t be surprised. I ate 10 cookies today at work and stood up till 2 am binge watching Breaking Bad. Wonder where he gets it from.

    • Mystik Spiral

      Oh, another nephew was constantly getting in trouble for jumping on the furniture when he was 2-3 years old. One day he spread out his blankie on the couch right next to my brother (his dad), climbed up, and proceeded to gleefully jump on the couch.

      Brother: “Logan! You KNOW you aren’t supposed to jump on the couch!”
      Logan: “I’m not jumping on the couch, I’m jumping on my blanket!!”

      Touche, Logan. Touche.

      • TwentiSomething Mom

        Ha! What a smart boy!

      • Kay_Sue

        Kids are the best at splitting hairs. My kids were fighting in their room one morning, and I called them out and glared an appropriate Mom-glare.

        “What are we fighting over?” I asked.
        “He won’t stop touching me!” my older son sobbed.
        “I’m NOT touching him! Wolverine is,” my younger son asserted, holding up a Wolverine action figure.

        He had no idea why I was fussing, and totally believed in his innocence to his core.

      • MegzWray

        Splitting hairs: My daughter has a bad habit of licking her hand then touching EVERYTHING. Gross. I tell her to stop it all the time. Coming back from vacation a few weeks ago and I heard the tell-tale sound of fingers on a window in the backseat. “Monster, you better not be licking your finger and drawing on your window!”

        3yo: “I’m not, Mama….but I had to do something with this booger!”

      • Alanna Jorgensen

        My daughter was kicking while I was trying to put pants on her and she accidentally kicked the coffee table and hurt her foot. I told her it was karma and she informed me, “That’s not karma, it’s a table!” There’s a lesson in there somewhere…

      • Holly

        My husband’s good friend was visiting (single, no kids) when I, for the zillionth time, told my kids to sit down, because ” couches are for bottoms, not feet”. He changed it to “couches are for the bottom of your feet!” and proceeded to stand on the couch with them.

    • Tea

      No superbowl for us. We’re going Miata hunting!

      On Monday my partner’s MX-5 was totaled by a guy not checking both ways, so we’re looking for an even more adorable, older replacement, which will take all weekend and possibly into next week. He’s so sad…

        My mom’s looking for it I swear D:

        And he kind of needs a car, or else he can’t go to work, and art model/naked house boy is not a real job… at least not if he only does it for me.

      • Rachel Sea

        A friend of mine in Seattle totally had that job. He worked for an agency that paid him to go clean people’s houses, wearing nothing but boots and a very small apron, while the homeowners watched.

    • Elisa Probert

      I’ll be cooking for the elderly folks at the hospital where I work. Patty melts with fries and coleslaw, I believe. I need to double check my menu.

      I may record the puppy bowl though, because PUPPIES!!! I heard there’s supposed to be a basset pup this year and I just want to watch her play and imagine how Beau looked as a puppy, since he was two and a half when we got him. This is Beau, cuddling with Pumpkin, who he kidnapped from next door because he needed a baby. (I asked if we could keep her, and lo and behold, yes! So now we have three dogs)

      I have no children and it would be REALLY freaky if any of my furry kids talked. Most articulate they ever get is “Arrooo!” from the dogs and the crazy evil laughter from the ferrets.

      • Kay_Sue

        What kind of dog is Pumpkin? They’re both adorable.

      • Elisa Probert

        Pumpkin is a Chiwhatsit! Her mom is a Chihuahua-Miniature Pinscher cross, I think, about 7 pounds of tiny hatred. Her dad? God only knows. She does NOT have her mom’s personality and is very loving and snuggly! I also call her a Ketchup dog (Heinz 57!) and a WeeChaCha.

      • Kay_Sue

        Chiwhatsit–that’s awesome. I love Miniature Pinschers. We had one at a stable I rode at that thought he owned the entire joint. He’d strut around when he was allowed to like he was the biggest dog on the place (he wasn’t–they also bred his full-size brethren and always had a few on hand for security). Scrappy little guy.

      • Elisa Probert

        My sister’s minpin is awesome. He used to be a stray is San Francisco, then got caught and shipped up here to Washington by a rescue. He was terrified of everyone, a serious biter, and he’d had his shoulders smashed so he walked upright a lot. He was so thin you could count every bone in his body. It took a while, and a lot of patience and love, but he doesn’t bite any more, doesn’t fight anymore, and prances like a tiny, healthy, pony. He likes to be coddled and dressed up in sweaters now, and he has almost human eyes. (and yes, I’ll talk about animals until someone hits me in the head with a big-ass book, and then I’ll read the book and go back to talking about animals…)

      • Kay_Sue

        Don’t get me started! My fur kid was my first baby. He’s been with me for nearly ten years, through thick and thin. I remember being so worried about bringing home my oldest son. Would Boots be jealous? Would he feel slighted? Neither. He sniffed the human puppy, licked his cheek, and then slept curled around his bassinet. Still sleeps by their lower bunk until they fall asleep even now. He’s a hell of a dog and I could talk about him forever. ;)

    • Hibbie

      My nephew turned to my boyfriend during Christmas dinner and said “Uncle, I shoot people.” Then went on chattering away aimlessly with my daughter. He’s 3 1/2.

      • Julia Sonenshein

        HAHAHAH

    • Lee

      I am just happy my husband is working Sunday so I don’t have to sit there and pretend not to be bored out of my skull. I may make myself my famous spinach dip. If you want the recipe pick up a packet of Knorr’s vegetable soup mix and look at the back. Add the water chestnuts and leave out the green onions.

      As for creepy things my kid said, it is actually what he didn’t say. This went on from the time the boy was one until 18 months or so. If I would go upstairs at a certain time at night he would literally go from sleeping to popping up in his crib and stand there silently. I would go get him and bring him in my bed where he would be totally silent and unresponsive except for this huge incredibly creepy grin and he would point his finger right in my face. It was so unnerving I had to stop getting him and would just go in and lay him back down. I think it was some sort of sleepwalking.

    • Lena

      I just got off FaceTime with my 2 1/2 nephew who told my mother ” You talk, I’m not strong enough.” I’m pretty sure he meant the phone was to heavy, but it was hilarious. I don’t have a dip recipes but I dream of making seven layer dip. Any recipes to share?

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        haha, that’s so dramatic! Unless he meant physically strong, but also, dramatic, yeah we need recipes get with the recipes people!

      • CMJ

        My niece’s favorite thing about FaceTime is hanging up on me. Without fail: “Can I hang up on you now, Aunt Cece?”

      • Bunny Lucia

        I heard the call! I knew I must be here to help!

        So from top to bottom:
        Chopped tomatoes
        Chopped black olives
        Shredded Mexican blend cheese
        Chopped green chilies
        Corn
        Take one cup of sour cream and mix it with a packet of taco seasoning

        How????

      • pixie

        I already liked you on Facebook.
        And am now creeping the page.

      • Elisa Probert

        ROFL The point, they have missed it! Peeps are taking shit waaaaay to seriously over there today!

      • Kay_Sue

        Wait, I already liked you and have seen none of this…*trots off to stalk Mommyish*

      • Kay_Sue

        “seriously? this is retarted & offensive . .”

        ^^^^The person that posted that both missed the point AND the irony of her own statement, methinks…

      • candyvines

        What’s going on over there? I have no Facebook.
        I like retarted: “I danced hard all night at the club, so I had to go to the bathroom and get myself retarted.”

      • Kay_Sue

        Mommyish on Facebook posted this:

        And people are missing the point. It’s cruising by them at right about the height of, oh, I dunno…Uranus? Maybe?

      • candyvines

        Ah, the sense of humor came out with the baby, gotcha.

      • Kay_Sue

        Sense of humor and ability to detect *any* sarcasm.

      • candyvines

        Forgot to say thanks, detective!

      • Kay_Sue

        *bows deeply* You are most welcome.

        The comments on the Facebook posts are too much. I can’t stop laughing at how mad everyone is.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        I actually got a ragey email :(

      • EX

        Well, if that isn’t the sign of a good joke I don’t know what is!

      • Kay_Sue

        Ahhhhhhh! I would give almost anything to see that. Want a child? I have extras…

    • LadyClodia

      My boys say such crazy stuff that I can’t even remember all of it. I do remember that a few months ago my 2 year old yelled “COCK!” at the ice cream store, and we scrambled to quickly say “Yes, honey, it is a CLOCK.” We knew what he meant, but it was still a bit awkward.
      We probably won’t be doing anything Super Bowl related; I understand football better than my husband does. I like the Puppy Bowl but no one else in our house seems to care. :( I also like to watch the commercials, but I’ll wait until Monday to catch the ones I haven’t already seen.
      Plus my husband came home last Sunday, so we have a bunch of errands to run this weekend.

    • EX

      I hope to be eating crappy hospital food during the Super Bowl after having delivered this baby. Or maybe my husband could bring me some wings. That would be cool. As for f-ed up things my 2.5 year old says – well, it’s all kind of f-ed up. The other day at dinner she started crying because she told my mom to drink more wine and my mom said she’d had enough. That was kind of f-ed up.

    • Lilly

      the creepy thing reminds me of a reddit thread from a while ago — there is some really creepy shit that comes from the mouths of babes (might not want to click the link unless you want to sleep with the light on tonight)

    • Rachel Sea

      I don’t care about football, but I love shouting at the TV with friends, so we’re going to a friend’s house to yell at the game and watch the commercials, and eat piles and piles of snacks. My wife is going to make a hot dip thing with Velveeta, and Nacho Cheese soup, and ground beef, and tinned diced tomatoes that you eat with Fritos, and I picked up the last Galette des Rois of the season.

      Saturday I think I’m buying bathroom faucets and ceramic tile so I can install the sinks that are sitting in the middle of my living room.

      • pixie

        I just love shouting at inanimate objects in general. The TV (THERE’S A ZOMBIE RIGHT BEHIND YOU, IDIOT!), the radio (YOU PLAYED THIS SONG TEN MINUTES AGO, WHAT THE HELL!!), my flute (WHY DO YOU SOUND LIKE SHIT?!), my metronome (I COUNT TIME BETTER THAN YOU WHEN I’M DRUNK!), my computer (WHY ARE YOU SO SLOW TODAY, OMG!!!!).

        I swear I am a perfectly sane person. *shifty eyes*

    • Rachel

      2 year old son to Grandpa:
      “Grandpa, why are you busting my balls?”
      (He definitely overheard hubby say this just hours before). The best part is he used it correctly when Grandpa was joking around with him, trying to pull a banana from his ear or something. Hilarious!

      We have a birthday party for me and my aunt. Mine is on the third and hers on the fourth so we have it on the weekend its closest to. We eat cake and pizza.

    • Alanna Jorgensen

      Totally watching the super bowl, and hopefully will get to see my mom’s team of 30+ years get their first superbowl win in franchise history. She deserves it after all her faithfulness through the lean years of the Hawks. Plus, it’s really cool to see how excited everyone in our state is and how even strangers in the street are celebrating together. As far as food, pulled pork sandwiches, deviled eggs and candied bacon!

      My creepy kid statement does not come from my daughter, but from my youngest sister when she was about three. She had huge blue eyes and adorable cascades of blonde ringlets. We were all in the van on a family trip and in a moment of silence she says, “My brain is black because it’s evil.” We all slowly turned to look at her and she giggled. She’s still weird to this day. :P

    • Jallun-Keatres

      I could not care less about football if I tried so there will be minimal partying over here!

      Mini Keatres is too young to talk but my sister is full of hilarious and sometimes embarrassing things. Here are some highlights:

      To an employee with a repaired cleft lip: “Look at your MOUTH!”
      To someone with a minpin/chihuahua on their lap: “Look at his penis!”
      On various occasions: “My butt is so rashy!”

      To anyone who will listen: “My sister had head lice in 2001!”
      Down a quiet hallway to the bathroom: *rips a loud one with every step*

      I love you Jallun Sister! lol

        OMG epic I don’t know which is my fave

      • Lackadaisical

        Some of those remind me of when my daughter was a toddler and saw her brothers in the altogether and noticing their willies loudly asked me “why have the brothers got a finger dangling from their bottoms”. Best description for a penis ever.

      We go to one of my husband’s friends houses for the Super Bowl. It’s really way more than just a football party. There are all kinds of games for money ;) last year we took home about $20. There are games for every part of the game. Although, this year I’m hoping to not embarrass myself. Last year my mom watched our daughter while we went. Since I was just coming out of a forced pregnancy/breastfeeding sobriety, I totally misjudged my tolerance. This year we’re bring the baby with us & I’m planning to use quite a bit more moderation.

      My daughter isn’t quite two, so she hasn’t said much at all so far. & all the food will be provided at the party, so no cooking for me! Hurray! I am making a yummy baked chicken Alfredo pasta with marinara for a lunch before the game.

      My 2 1/2 year old bean is a total comedian, just about everything that comes out of his mouth is funny/inappropriate. Most recent one…in the bath tonight, he tried to hand me a cup full of water, said “Here Mommy, I made you some tea, it’s butt flavor!”
      As for super bowl, I’ve been playing hermit lately, so no invites-I love snack food though so the kids will have to help me out with demolishing some super nachos!

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        I made you some tea, it’s butt flavor is what I will tell everyone from now on

      For my best friend’s Super Bowl party, I’m bringing the oversized Broncos sweatshirt I haven’t washed since the beginning of the season lest doing so cost the Broncos their Super Bowl title, my less-smelly but equally-unwashed long-sleeved Broncos t-shirt, my lucky blue bra, my lucky orange underwear, and my lucky blue socks. Basically, I am bringing WINNING ala Charlie Sheen to this Super Bowl party. I’ll leave the city location of this party to your imagination, and I’m sure you’ll be guessing for ages.

      (I would’ve gotten some beer, but the grocery and liquor stores are a madhouse.)

      As to funny kid statements, I’m childfree, but when I was around 3, my mother had Die Hard or some equally child-unfriendly fare playing on the TV while she did chores. I stared enchantedly at the TV for several minutes, then wandered off to try out some new vocabulary I’d learned: “Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck,” I sing-songed loudly throughout the house in my three-year-old voice as my horrified mother realized she might have to rethink her viewing choices for another few years.
