Another Milestone

My beautiful baby,the joy of my life, the apple of my eye, etc. etc. has just accomplished his crowning acheivement to date:

He (finally) learned to say "mommy"!

He has been saying "daddy" for some time now, and my husband goes on about how wonderful it makes him feel to hear Trevor say it.

I agree - it was really awesome!!!


Colts, Cowboys & Patriots!!!

An Indianapolis Colts fan, a Dallas Cowboys fan and a New England Patriots fan were all in Saudi Arabia, sharing a smuggled crate of booze.

All of a sudden Saudi police rushed in and arrested them.

The mere possession of alcohol is a severe offense in Saudi Arabia, so for the terrible crime, they were sentenced to death!

However, it was a Saudi national holiday the day their trial finished, and the extremely benevolent Sheik decided they could be released after receiving just 20 lashes each of the whip.

As they were preparing for their punishment, the Sheik suddenly said, "It's my first wife's birthday today, and she has asked me to allow each of you one wish before your whipping."

The Patriots fan was first in line (he drank the least), so he thought about this for a while and then said, "Please tie a pillow to my back." This was done, but the pillow only lasted 10 lashes before the whip went through. The Patriots fan had to be carried away crying like a baby.

The Cowboys fan was next up (he almost finished an entire fifth by himself), and after watching the scene, said "All Right! Please fix two pillows on my back." But even two pillows could only take 15 lashes before the whip went through, sending the Cowboys fan out crying like a little girl.

The Colts fan was the last one up (he had finished off the crate). The Sheik turned to him and said, "You support the greatest team in the world. Your city and fans are the greatest. For this, you may have two wishes!"

Thanks, your most Royal highness," the Colts fan replies. "In recognition of your kindness, my first wish is that you give me not 20, but 100 lashes.

"Not only are you an honorable man, you are also very brave," the Sheik says with an admiring look on his face. "If 100 lashes is what you desire, then so be it. And your second wish? the Sheik asks.

"Tie the Cowboys fan to my back!"

Oh, ha ha. How funny. It HAD to be the COWBOY fan. You'll see, now that Parcells has retired. Things will be different next year. (They'll be 2-14, probably).

Cute picture of my darling grandson, tho!

That was a really awful joke Christina, funny as hell though.

Steve G said...

Good one, Christin. He now says mommy, that's cute.

Christina said...

dad - actually when i received the joke, it used 3 other teams altogether. I was trying to think who was playing in the superbowl this year (colts and ???) - obviously I guessed wrong, it's the Bears, not the Patriots. Anyway, I threw in the Cowboys just for you!

My youngest turned two last October. Over the course of the last two days, I'm stunned at the words he has turned into sentences. This does not bode well...LOL!

It is wonderful when the little ones find their first words. Some of the cutest moments happen during this learning time. Loved the joke
Cheers Margaret

Hi there, I’ve been relying on using Bloglines to do my daily rounds of the blogroll for a while now, it’s a very time saving method but it feels a bit impersonal at times, so it’s a hot Saturday, I’m gonna sit here and visit with everyone, It won’t feel any different to you but know that I chose to visit today instead of just answering an electronic reminder.
Have a good day.
'Bout time for another post!!
