She Comes From The Land Down Under

Mia has this cute little kangaroo toy. She plays with it on a rotation with her other 4,759 stuffed animals, so sometimes it gets lonely. Until mama picks it up and...

Whoops! There goes the baby!

Except...that ain't no ordinary joey. It's only a HEAD. With a NECK. It's BODY-less. *shudder*

The mama kangaroo looks indignant, doesn't she? Like, "it's none of your business what I keep in my pouch, you judgemental so-and-so!"

But she's going to need to keep a better eye on her joey-head. The little critter's gone and hijacked a My Little Pony shoe, and it looks like she's off to see the world. She's ready to stand on her own two vertebrae. She's got the wind ruffling her neck hair and she's shunning the pouch in favor of bigger and better things.

I know how you feel, mama. You raise a baby only to watch them walk away.
Need a hankie?


  1. So is this what you do during nap with the kids toys? Ha ha, you are so funny....and insightful.

  2. Hahaha! Yes Katie, my naptimes are quite entertaining! And about your strawberries/bugs question a few days ago - I think it depends on what's getting them. The powder I'm using is pretty all-purpose, so it might work. It's called Dipel, and it's organic something or other. You might give it a try.

  3. Seriously.... you should be charging people to read your thoughts. Your funniness (funnyness?)... um, your humor is off the charts. See? You're so hilarious that I'm gushing. I'm going to be looking for opportunities to tell people that I'm "ready to stand on my own two vertebrae."

  4. Haha, so funny!! If they are only going to make it a head, the least they can do is sew it in so no one knows ;)

  5. You put that song in my head :)

  6. So funny!!! You are one of the funniest people I sorta know. ;)

  7. Lenae - my husband said that charging for thought-reading can be arranged. I'm sure he'd rather pawn my thoughts off on other so he doesn't have to listen to my drivel all day anyway. ;)

    Becky - It was sewed in to begin with, but one of the little pairs of hands around here made short work of the single stitch. Oh well. We wouldn've missed all the decapitated fun otherwise.

    Diane - You better run, you better take cover-er.

    Lerin - Thanks!


Hmm...And how did that make you FEEL?
