The Uncontainable Fabulousness

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Having a house full of boys is a full time job and a half.  Anyone who tells you otherwise is a BIG FAT LIAR saint, and I aspire to be more like them.  The things that boys find funny are often GROSS DISGUSTING AND WRONG not funny if you are a girl have any breeding whatsoever.

That said, they do provide me hours and hours of GREATBLOGMATERIAL   fun and enjoyment.  As most of you know, the two that live with me all the time are ADD and ADHD.  Koop is ADD, Kamden is ADHD.  There is a huge difference.  Kooper is easily distracted, while Kamden is the distraction.  Kamden literally could not sit still if his life depended on it.

Kamden is what we refer to as Chatty Cathy.  I swear that child talks more than a little girl.  He does not. stop. talking. ever.  He talks when he is alone.  He talks in the shower.  He sings all the time.  He drives us all to drink up the proverbial wall.

The following is a conversation between me and Kooper, in reference to the chatterbox also known as Kamalamadingdong.

Koop:  *huff* *sigh* *beating on the keyboard at the computer like he was going to kill it*
Me:  Would you knock it off?
NOTE: Kamden is sitting as his computer singing LOUDLY in a dulcet tone Taylor Swift for the umpteenth time that hour.
Koop:  I am trying to play my game.
Me:  Sounds to me like you are trying to kill your keyboard.  I am not buying another one if you beat that one to death.
Kamden is still singing.
Koop:  Will you PLEASE  make him shut up?
Me:  He isn't hurting you is he?
Koop:  Um...Mom.  We share a room.  He sleeps in my room.  He doesn't stop talking ever.  Do you know he even talks in his sleep?  In. His. SLEEP!  Now, really, are you going to ask me if he is hurting me?
Me: *fighting back tears of laughter*  to Kamden could you please sing in your head? to Kooper Happy now?
Kamden: Taylor Swift is way too fabulous to keep in my head.  I need to share her with the world.
Kooper: *blink* *blink* looks at me
Me: *blink* *blink* look at Koop
Kamden gets up from his computer, cocks his head and looks at the two of us and says, Me and Taylor Swift are taking our fabulousness in my room.  And with that he turned on his heel and left.
Kooper:  under his breath Girl!
At that point Kooper and I busted out laughing.  A great mom would have corrected that last comment, but I let it slide.  Kooper had endured enough for one afternoon.

Never a dull moment Smackers.  Never.

Of all these things, I think you should be most concerned about the fact that he thinks Taylor Swift is way too fabulous to keep in his head.

That is so hilarious. I love the way your family dishes it out on each other, but always, always, with so much mutual love and respect.

Your house sounds like the kinda place where I can eat good food and laugh my ass off...but I better bring my "A" Game to keep up with all the smack talkers.

I mean this in the best way possible. It sounds lovely.

My nephew is in love with Lady Gaga and when he texts people, his signature is set to: (his name) Gaga

Similar things happen in our house. But usually, The Boy takes matters into his own hands which in leads to him losing an XBox.

I have an ADHD child who never. stops. talking. Same thing. In the shower, to herself, to her stuffed animals. And the constant singing I try to encourage until it becomes too much to bear!

That was great! Too Funny!
