A Favor

They say "ask, and you shall receive", so I'm asking. I need a favor from all of you. You got my back, right? You see, if I haven't mentioned this before, I am a planner, a schemer, a dreamer. I almost always have at least 3 ideas I'm working on at one time. That might explain why most of them never get done. I think I have trouble FOCUSING. Can adults have ADD? Nah.

Anyway, this is what I need each of you who reads this crazy blog to do... I need you to tell me 3-5 of the funniest posts you've read of another blogger or bloggers. (They need to be about raising children, in some way. Not my posts, either). I also need you to tell me 3-5 of the funniest posts you have written about raising your own kids.

If it helps you to think of this as a meme, then do that. If you hate meme's and it takes you months to do them, then just think of this as a big favor you are doing a very grateful friend. If you want to ask your other bloggy friends to do it, that would be very helpful, but now I'm just annoying you, aren't I?

(P.S. I'll let you in on the scheme at a later date).
Added Note: Sorry, I guess I was a bit vague. If you could give me links to the posts, that would be great, or even just a link to someone's blog that you think is really funny. Also, links to your funny posts. Thanks!

Need more info - do you want a link to that post on someone else's blog or just give a summary of what's been read?

This is one of the funniest blogs about raising children that I have found. That takes you to one of the posts, but there are plenty more on her site. Too funny!

JCK said...

I had the same question as Joanna. Can you add a note to your post and let us know?

Kristi S said...

Janet said...

This sounds like fun, whatever the scheme. And do i think adults can have ADD? well, I . . . wait is that a yellow bellied sapsucker? Uh. Maybe.

I'll have to get back to you. Since jac took one of mine!

Hey Jen - I am going to do this, but I want a little time to remember/think of some blogs/stories. I have some in mind, but not all are related to kids/parenting or I can't remember who wrote them - but I will. I'll come back and list the ones I can remember. I'm also gonna give you a few of mine, but also need to decide which. I'll be back. Kellan

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

OK, I did a little bit of my homework:

http://catwomantexas.blogspot.com/2008/02/hormonal-undercurrent.html All thinks Catwoman are funny. I picked out a kind of recent one.

http://www.dadgonemad.com/ All of it. Dad's are just plain funny.

http://whylawyerssuck.blogspot.com/ New-ish blogger. Very funny blogger.

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

THINGS not thinks. Gah! I even edited that before I hit Publish.

Kellan said...

Okay, I've been thinking. 3-5 of my posts are titled, "Sometimes I Just Don't Stack Up, My Boy The Genius, I Wonder, As A Mother, What My USDA Rating Would Be, Who Is Doin' All That Yellin'? and Take Everything We Own. There's 5.

Now, as for other bloggers and funny posts - I have read a lot and have a hard time remember specific posts, but I can give you a few bloggers that I think write funny posts. One is PB&J In A Bowl (she is a great writer and writes consistently funny posts), Karen at The Rocking Horse always writes something funny, Tina at My Goodness also writes funny stories, Holly at June Clever Nirvana - funny and there are so many others - when I think of a few more, I'll let you know. Most of these can be found in my blogroll or if not, most leave daily comments and you can find them on my comments.

Hope this helps and is what you are looking for - I'm sorry I can't link to all of these - I am on my way to Walgreens with the kids - ya know - crap to do!

Have a good day - Kellan

I will get to work on this right after I put my kids to sleep (oops! bed!)

the only specific post I could think of.
You already have access to Burgh Baby, and I see you were already suggested Navel Gazing at It's Finest, so suburbancorrespondent.blogspot.com has several good posts. This is frustrating me because I know I have laughed out loud several times reading blogs about parenting but nothing specific stands out. Now I'm going to be on a quest for the perfect funny parenting post. Agh! Or I could just go back to real life....
On my blog I haven't really written anything that is funny, just odd maybe but there's at least some good parenting advice here-

and this old thing will either make you laugh or cry-

I personally like the video clips more-

2007/09/lime-eater-part-1.html and part 2 or

2008/01/coppertone-boy.html.

I'll have to check out some of these other guys. I bet they all have funny posts somewhere.

Oh, I realized no one suggested finslippy.typepad.com She is great. Her cat getting spayed was hilarious, among many others.
And another few ones:
