It’s a blog mash-up with Crappy Pictures!

I am ecstatic to interrupt your regularly scheduled Five Kids programming to let you know that I can be found today in a blog mash-up at Amber Dusick’s brilliant Parenting. Illustrated with Crappy Pictures. I did the writing, and Amber illustrated the hell out it.

I tried to be cool, but

I failed. (Honestly, I didn’t try hard to be cool; this sign practically wrote itself.)

I know what you’re thinking. You just won at blogging, Beth. What are you going to do next? 

And I think there’s only one answer.


In short, head on over to Crappy Pictures and check it out!

The end.


P.S. You know what I like? Radness. Kindness. Encouragement. And mama solidarity in the midst of the mess. (Hey, Amber? Thank you.)


P.P.S. I have literalist children in my midst who might pass out from hyperventilation if I don’t clarify that my “I’m going to Disneyland!” sign actually should read:

“I’m going to already technically at Disneyland which in no way diminishes my excitement at collaborating with



P.P.P.S. Go!

    • Yeah – zipper penis definitely gets less of a yay. Although it’s been a while, and now he finds that story HILARIOUS. What can I say? My kid may not use a zipper well, but he has a ROCKING sense of humor.

      Thanks for stopping by.

  1. You are on crappy pictures!!! woot woot! I went to crappy pictures, saw Amber talking about you and came straight here to comment! You don’t know me but I’ve been reading for a while and have commented a few times. Love your blog! Now back off to read your guest post on Crappy Pictures!

  2. Hi Beth. I’m Anne from Life on the Funny Farm (, here by way of Crappy.

    This was too funny. I guess that wasn’t really too hard a choice to make, was it? End up on the couch b/c of food issues or b/c Mommy kissed his penis? A no-brainer.

    Anyway, I am off to check out more of your blog now, b/c we Moms of Many have many similar things to laugh about (I have six). Hope you can pop over to my blog sometime to say hi!

    Have a good one!

  3. Just read your story on Crappy Pictures. Poor kid, but so funny. My 3 drive me absoulutely insane at times and I know I could never manage more, but I do admire moms who can have more and survive.

  4. I just read the blog, oh my gosh. I was cringing and laughing at the same time (a favorite emotion of mine). Your poor little man! I remember when that happened to my brother. I still cringe every time my girls zip up their footie pajamas and they have no outside parts to worry about, plus they are 12 and 8! Maybe my mom should have given me a cookie and I would have been ok.

    While I agree on the no food for comfort policy, you did the right thing bending the rules this one time! : )

  5. Wait, wait WAIT. You are at Disneyland? Right now? You are aware that it is driving distance from my home, yes? I think I might just drive have to drive on over and pick up my beer that you owe me. Course Disneyland doesn’t sell alcohol. And certainly not the organic, locally made variety of which you’ve promised. Darn!
