She's a rapper, on the crapper.

Talking nonsensically is an Olympic event around here, with my 4 yr old and I vying for the top of that podium.

But this morning, as she has sat down for a quick poopoo before heading off to school, our little game reached a whole new level.

She saw me run by the bathroom in my underwear, and shouted "I see your stinky bunners!!"...ironic considering her current activity in the restroom.

Then we heard, "I think I need the air on".

My wife and I had a good giggle at this.

So I walked over to the bathroom to turn on the fan for her, and said with a smile "Miss C, you're weird-o-rama."

And she replied, without hesitation:

"You're Barack Obama."

I couldnt reply...mostly because I hit the floor laughing so hard...

And then she added:

"When I call you Barack Obama, you call me John McCain."

I crawled away to find my wife, who I could hear losing it in the next room, and I heard behind me:

"Hey...I still need the John McCain air on."

She doesn't have a firm grasp of the issues, but I love that she is in the game.

She's about as up-to-date on the issues as most of the rest of the bitchers & moaners are!

Hey, if we could all have life be this simple wouldn't it be GREAT?

Your daughter is a crack up. Maybe she should write my blog.

Oh, I think she has a very firm grasp on the status of the world right now - it's in the shitter.

Ah, to have an exhaust fan the size of Australia right about now...

Yet again, a brilliant child!

i hope you did your best beat box for her.

Jay, You are too funny. Too bad you couldn't get this on video--it would be ayoutube sensation.

Anyhow,I want to send you an invite to join a writing network called Associated Content. They are a online source for all sorts of articles. I revamp my articles from my website and publish them on AC.

Here is a sample:

I get about $10 for each article they pick up (they need to be about 500 words) and then I get a bonus each time the article is clicked. It's not huge additional income, but it does get my work out there to new readers and I always link to my web site.

Editing the articles and blog posts doesn't take a whole lot of time. While it isn't a huge income (I make about $35 a month), I do get quite a few hits on Momtrends from folks who read my work on AC. SO far more than 70,000 people have read my work on AC.

By the way, if you're willing to accept an award from a mommy-blogger, there's one waiting for you at my site.

To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one's self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - this is to have succeeded. - Emerson
