From the mouth's of...BABES!!!

The Way Children See Things!
(an email sent to me recently)


I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening when
a Woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark
naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my 5-year-old shout
from the back seat, "Mom! That lady isn't wearing a seat belt!


My son Zachary, 4, came screaming out of the bathroom to tell me he'd
dropped his toothbrush in the toilet. So I fished it out and threw it
in the garbage. Zachary stood there thinking for a moment, then ran to my
bathroom and came out with my toothbrush. He held it up and said with a charming
little smile, "We better throw this one out too then, 'cause it fell in
the toilet a few days ago.


On the first day of school, a first-grader handed his teacher a Note
from his mother. The note read, "The opinions expressed by this child are
not necessarily those of his parents."


A woman was trying hard to get the ketchup to come out of the jar.
During her struggle the phone rang so she asked her 4-year-old daughter to
answer the phone. "It's the minister, Mommy," the child said to her mother.
Then she added, "Mommy can't come to the phone to talk to you right now.
She's hitting the bottle."

More Nudity

A little boy got lost at the YMCA and found himself in the women's
locker room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks, with ladies
grabbing towels and running for cover. The little boy watched in amazement and
then asked, "What's the matter haven't you ever seen a little boy before?"


While working for an organization that delivers lunches to elderly
shut-ins, I used to take my 4-year-old daughter on my afternoon rounds. The
various appliances of old age, particularly the canes, walkers and wheelchairs,
unfailingly intrigued her. One day I found her staring at a pair of
false teeth soaking in a glass. As I braced myself for the inevitable barrage
of questions, she merely turned and whispered, "The tooth fairy will never
believe this!"

Dress Up

A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw
her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, "Daddy, you shouldn't wear that
suit." "And why not, darling?" "You know that it always gives you a headache
the next morning."


While walking along the sidewalk in front of his church, our minister
heard the intoning of a prayer that nearly made his collar wilt. Apparently,
his 5-year-old son and his playmates had found a dead robin. Feeling that
proper burial should be performed, they had secured a small box and cotton
batting, then dug a hole and made ready for the disposal of the deceased. The
minister's son was chosen to say the appropriate prayers and with
sonorous dignity intoned his version of what he thought his Father always said:
"Glory be unto the Faaaather, and unto the Sonnn ... and into the hole
he gooooes."


A little girl had just finished her first week of school. "I'm just
wasting my time," she said to her mother. "I can't read, I can't write and they
won't let me talk!"


A little boy opened the big family bible. He was fascinated as he
fingered through the old pages. Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible. He
picked up the object and looked at it. What he saw was an old leaf that had
been pressed in between the pages. "Mama, look what I found", the boy called
out." What have you got there, dear?" With astonishment in the young
boy's voice, he answered, "I think it's Adam's underwear!"

Rockin the House!!!!!

I just had to give a little shout out to my nephew Micheal whom is 13 years old. Our whole family went to go see him perform at his junior high's Talent Show last nite.
He entered in the contest playing the drums; and let me just say "He Rocked". He was one of the last kids to perform at the end of the show, and what a show of Talent he displayed. He played his own arrangement, and totally "ROCKED THE HOUSE" He had the whole place hollaring and clapping along. And to complete his nite of glory, he won the contest WHHOOOOHOOOOO!!!!!

Anyway we just wanted to give him another round of applause, and say "Well done kiddo,YOU ROCKED!!!" And keep up the fantastic talent, you should be very proud of yourself!!!

Horribe Movie Flick

So.. I settle everyone down to bed last nite, really geared up to finally get to watch a movie all by myself without ANY interruptions.So...curled up on the couch, pop the movie into the DVD player (I had rented almost a week ago, that's sometimes how long they sit before I even actually get around to watchin em.)

Now I had heard great things about this movie, it's an artsy flick not really generated out into the huge theatres for all to see. The movie PLEEAAASSEE...The squid and the Whale. Oh it started out disturbing, and just kept getting worse. Hey maybe that was the intent of the whole thing.

I guess my whole outl0ok on movies has changed, I want to be entertained if I am going to use my quiet time card, meaning without hubby or kid, I really need to be dazzled.

To me, this is my opinion only, I was not entertained. I don't need to watch a movie with such disfunction, it creeps me out. Really, don't we see enough of that in real life, hmmm...really, right before our eyes everday in some shape or form. Well it had good reviews, so... maybe some people just can't get enough. I'm good thankyou.... Bad,Bad,Bad Movie

It just feels right...

So, for the few of you who read my blog, you've noticed I have decided to go with a different title. After much thought, and a some help from a friend who also is a fellow blogger, my blog title I think is just much more appropriate for the content in which my blog petrudes.

I am forever laughing at something, weather it be my son, husband or my friends. Also sitting down in the morning with my cup of joe, and wandering thur my daily blogs I love to read,to give a good laugh and a big boost for the day.

I laugh alot, and I hope that comes out in my writings of my life, of love, kids, animals and everyday life. I sometimes have to remind myself to maybe laugh abit more, and stop sweating the small things, my hair wouldn't be so gray, and the lines may slow down abit on my face. When I'm old and gray I really want the laugh lines of my face tell my story.... and not so much the stressful ones.

Thursday, March 23, 2006 finally Done

So...I started doing laundry hmm..I think last thursday, and I would throw it on spare bed in Ben's room, and fold as I could. We now have a new use for Ben's changing table, can you guess?? It's the new place the clothes stay stacked ,once folded. Instead of Alan, or I getting a stack and just putting it away, well we have been pulling from the folded stack in Ben's room for the past week.

I know Alan's out of boxers, and I'm sure other articles of clothing, when I see him running around in spongebob boxers, he NEVER wears. How can this be, all he would have to do is get his clothes off the table and put them away. Good god, the laziness is absolutlely insane. I clean, dry and fold them. hard is it to stick it in a closet. Well, apparently it's very HARD. A little help please, PLEASE!!! Well I finally had had it, and I was up at the crack of dawn putting about, oh I'm really not sure, probably 20 loads or something , of clothes away. LAUNDRY IS DONE., till tommorrow

That is my bitch for the week...

Ben's Bowling Adventures

So the whole family went to our first bowling Birthday Party last Sat. Ben did pretty well, and loved the whole thing about throwing this heavy ball, and letting it bang into something. He didn't quite understand the whole waiting his turn thing, but he's a bit like his mommy, ummm..impatient. He bowled an 84, with the help of his daddy, and siderails, but not to bad for the little guys first time.
Mommy, well she sucked. She had no help from daddy or siderails and bowled a whopping 50 on the first, and 34 on the second game. Honestly I really never bowled when I was younger, until I was old enough to drink, and the bowling scene was cool, with your pitcher of beer, and good friends.
I must say, the beer helped me out, and I actually bowled so well, I could have been on a league. Oh, wait was that me being dillusional, (from the beer) THINKING I was awesome, me thinks so...

A Walk in the Clouds...

So...the last few days have been like a daze for me. I thought oh, we all have those days when we are just so tired we could fall asleep standing up (ya know, the feeling you get when the baby has been up all nite, crying for something, to be fed, tooth coming in, stuffy nose, puking every hour or so. it coming back to ya) Well that's how I have been the last few days, only it was not from sleepless nites.

To tell you the truth I thought it was just me, and my body saying, get up and run on the tredmill lazy bones, you need to get your blood pumping. But I had no energy to even get my shoes on.

Last nite it really was all I could do to make it through eating dinner, without laying in it. I was on the floor playing with Ben while he watched a little bit of wiggles last nite, the next thing I know, I wake up to Ben kissing my nose, and saying Mooooommmmmyyy. Alan yells in from computer "Barb you alright?" Like how long was I out for, and he's just checking on me now, what if I needed medical attention. It would have needed to wait until he had reponded to all his email. Uggg...good thing it was just needing sleep.

We all hit the bed about 8:30, my god, how pathetic. I was thinking how in the world am I gonna make it through another day like this. On top of that my stomach had been aching with some gross acid crap, which I take medicine for sometimes, actually had been taking it for the last few days. ( Remember when we were young, meaning our early twenties, and a asprin and beer cured whatever was aling us , good-bye to THAT.)

Well on with the story I got up this morning feeling just as tired, maybe a bit rested, and got into the cubbards for my tummy meds, and decided to take a look at the pill bottle, for some foolish reason.

Eureka, I had been taking allergy medication, which I only take once and while, and at bedtime, Cuz it makes me DROWSY!!!!!!! Oh, how I've enjoyed my little walk in the clouds, but glad to be back on earth....

Reminder to self:" Read the damn bottles of medication before popping them in your mouth, You IDIOT!!!"

Wow, waking up this morning to frost all over the ground, and thick on the cars, it's hard to's the first day of spring.

As the day has gone on the sun has been shining's been an absolute fabulous day out there. Looking out you want to slip into your flip-flops and shorts, and curl up on the grass with a good book and something yummy to drink, ahhh...not quite so fast it's really just a balmy 55 degrees, yet the numbers keep going on up, and swimsuit weather is not far off, UGGGG!!!

Get your GREEN on, kick back and RELAX, it's FRIDAY....and have a yerself a BEER!!!!(You deserve


Paddy was driving down the street in a sweat because he had an important meeting and couldn't find a parking place. Looking up to heaven he said, "Lord take pity on me. If you find me a parking place I will go to Mass every Sunday for the rest of me life and give up drinkin me Irish Whiskey".

Miraculously, a parking place appeared.

Paddy looked up again and said, "Never mind, I just found one."

Paddy was in New York He was patiently waiting, and watching the traffic cop on a busy street crossing. The cop stopped the flow of traffic and shouted, "Okay pedestrians". Then he'd allow the traffic to pass.

He'd done this several times, and Paddy still stood on the sidewalk.

After the cop had shouted "Pedestrians" for the tenth time, Paddy went over to him and said, "Is it not about time ye let the Catholics across?"

Finally....Something good for my Soul!!!

So...I'm feeling much better today. Driving home the other day from picking up children, we were listening to 103.7 The Mountain, an awesome song comes on by woman artist by the name of K.T. Tunstall. Maybe you've heard of her, come to find out she's been around with an album since 2004, but it was my first time hearing her. Reminds me alot of Shawn Colvin, only she's got alot more soul to her, she actually really ROCKS!!!

Found her CD yesterday Kalidescope. It's Awesome!! I don't come across to many cd's I like all of, but this one certainly did. While giving a bath to Ben last nite, we had it on. He was busy playing with all of his tub things, then this one song comes on "Black Horse" and he stands up, starts shakin his booty and rockin out....He had me laughing so hard. And that's all it took for me to have a fulll out BELLYLAUGH to make things all good in the world.

I must be sending out ya think???

I really must have it bad this month; people keep sending me little jokes here and there about hormones and PMS via email. The question is, are those jokes to make me laugh, or....get me to wake the F@#$ up, and snap out of it. Hmmmmm....I dare someone to respond, just kindin ya, I love all my friends and I'm sorry if I've been a total B@#*@ this week. Thought this joke was especially CUTE!!!!!


The Hormone Hostage knows that there are days in the month when all a
man has to do is open his mouth and he takes his very life into his own hands! This is a handy guide that should be as common as a driver's license in the wallet of every husband, boyfriend, or significant other!!

DANGEROUS: What's for dinner?
SAFER:May I help you with dinner?
SAFEST: Where would you like to go for dinner?
ULTRASAFE: Here, have some chocolate.

DANGEROUS: Are you wearing that?
SAFER: Gee, you look good in brown.
SAFEST: WOW! Look at you!
ULTRASAFE: Here, have some chocolate.

DANGEROUS: What are you so worked up about?
SAFER: What did I do wrong?
SAFEST: Here's fifty dollars.
ULTRASAFE: Here, have some chocolate.

DANGEROUS: Should you be eating that?
SAFER: You know, there are a lot of apples left.
SAFEST:May I get you a glass of wine with that?
ULTRASAFE: Here, have some chocolate.

DANGEROUS: What did you do all day?
SAFER: I hope you didn't overdo it today.
SAFEST: I've always loved you in that robe!
ULTRASAFE: Here, have some more chocolate.

13 Things PMS Stands For:
1. Pass My Shotgun
2. Psychotic Mood Shift
3. Perpetual Munching Spree
4. Puffy Mid-Section
5. People Make me Sick
6. Provide Me with Sweets
7. Pardon My Sobbing
8. Pimples May Surface
9. Pass My Sweatpants
10. Plainly; Men Suck
11. Pack My Stuff........And my favorite one...
12. Potential Murder Suspect

Pass this onto all of your hormonal friends and those who might need a good laugh! Or men who need a warning! And remember: Money talks...but chocolate sings.

Another thing to giggle about... My husband, not happy with my mood swings, bought me a mood ring the other day so he would be able to monitor my moods. When I'm in a good mood, it turns green. When I'm in a bad mood, it leaves a big red mark on his forehead. Maybe next time he'll buy me diamonds. Here, have some chocolate.

Live Well, Love Much, Laugh Often

Hypocrite, ahhh...maybe

So...this act of being a hypocrite may still be steming from yesterday's post.

Ben and I woke up this morning, he usually wants some cereal and milk, when he first wakes up. So, I get that for him, but no not today, he runs to the kitchen pointing and exclaiming he would like something in the cabinet. I open it, and he points to the Nemo fruit snack. Now for most of you who have kids, a fruit snack is really not fruit at all, but a great cover for pure sugar in this very cute disquised animal shape. I was not going to give him that first thing in the morning, so..I offered a banana, some toast, different cereal, anything but the fruit snack. He finally gave up after much whining (which I really don't deal very well with at 6am) but I stuck to my guns.

About an hour later, I was searching in my purse for some chapstick, and came across a wonderful wrapped piece of heaven, at least for me at this time it was perfect....

So...guess what mean mommy had for breakfast???? She really was thinking of her sanity.

Hypocrite....maybe??? Satisfied.....completely!!!!

New Blog Name

Sooo... I have heard from a few of you that I should possibly change my blog name to something more to do with our whole family, instead of just King Ben.

Well...I like my name, because pretty much everything in my posts have to do with Ben in some way. But, if anyone can come up with a cute title to do with the Conway's, shoot it on over. I really can't think of a cool blog name at this time, but I will keep racking my brain.

I know it's my blog, and my imagination in which I will make it entirely mine, but seriously I'm not coming up with much..

So after 2 months of trying to figure this thing out, I finally got a picture by my name. Genius...whatcha thing???

So....this is why I love where I live. Ben and I woke up to the beautiful snow covering the trees and grass. Mommy,wowwwwww!!!!! The snow was falling fast and huge, and gigantic flakes. I still get a rush of excitement like when I was young, and would wait up all nite, so I could run out first thing only with my pajamas and boots to make the first foot step, and feel the flakes on my nose. It's march, yes, the cherry blossoms starting blooming last week, and yes, the snow is falling and landing on them. AND IT'S BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Roaming Cattle Restraunt

This past weekend we were looking for somewhere to go in Tacoma, with great food, drinks, wine and atmosphere. Trying to branch out from the same old, same old. We had never been to El Gaucho's, soo...the plan was to try them out. Well our friends we would be having dinner with heard about this NEW Place called ASADO. An Argentinian themed resturant. Some may have already heard of it, but it was new to us.

So, those of you who know me pretty well, I am not very open minded and had a rush of panic come over me about the fine cuisine of Argentina. OMG what was I in for, it was rather frightenening. I didn't want to be a stick in the mud, and was let in on a little secret that it all had to do with STEAKS, STEAKS., and more STEAK. Hence, the roaming cattle thing. I threw my ignorance of geography, and fine dining in foreign countries out the window, and said oh, what the hell, can't go wrong with fine cattle.

It was absolutely scrumpscious, Fried banana chips, a steak in this wonderful sauce, and purple mashed potatoes. Yummmmmmmmyyyyy!!!! And to end the evening with fried bananas, choc sauce, and vanilla bean icecream. No complaints on the food, music, drinks, (just the noise level) A little hard to hear, pretty much had very little voice as we stepped outside, but all in all a great nite of food, friends, and a little bit of freedom from the rushed dinners with Ben....

Weekend of Lovin, Touchin, and Learnin...

Last weekend Alan and I had a little mini Lovefest up in Leavenworth. We were there to attend a marriage retreat to re-connect, re-learn, and re-discover our relationship on marriage. When people in the past have ever mentioned marriage retreats, encounters, marriage whatevers, I was always a bit skeptical thinking how silly they always sounded. Actually it really was quite the opposite, it was very insightful, and really taught us alot about communication and patience with each other. Marriage is really difficult sometimes, if we had nothing else to deal with besides us; meaning no money arguements, disagreements on kids,jobs, and just life in general, hey it would always be a kick in the hay. Not in the real world, we have real life problems, and situations we are always dealing with. I really did reconnect with my hubby, and learned a little in the process. It was a good weekend, and our arguements seem to have subsided, and are minimal ....hey that leaves me happy, and hopefully that makes everyone else connected to us happier too.

Football, Baseball,'s my everything!!!

When it comes to any sporting events... Ben is a crazy fanatic about them already. Ben has been to more sporting events in this past year than I ever had before turning 30 something...He really loves our Seattle teams and supports them with all his heart and soul. In this pic he's actually getting ready to head to a Sonics game with his daddy and friends. I really use to love going to the games, but now I look at the guy time with Ben and daddy as my "OMG I get the house all to myself for the next 3 hours Whooo Hooo!!!Posted by Picasa

Let sleeping dawgs Lie

More like a sleeping cute, cuddly little boy.... This was not the picture of cuteness 2 hours ago... We decide it's getting to late to try and cook dinner, and Ben is eyeing the potato chip bag with eyes of a we head of for something to eat. Dinner goes pretty well considering it was getting kind of late. We head for the door to leave, Ben asks "Balloon Pleeeeeeease!!!" No problem, he picks himself out a cool blue one. So we start out the door to leave, and daddy asks the most unreasonable question in the world. "Ben, could you please put your coat on?" No problem or argueing from his mouth as long as the balloon does not get taken from his hand only to slip his arm in his coat sleeve for a quick milisecond.

Well he flew into a full blown rage, throwing himself down on the floor and screaming his lungs out. Back when I had no kids of my own, back in the day when I had NO CLUE!!! I use to say to myself and anyone around me, when seeing a child behave this way "Oh, no way, my child will never act that way, I won't allow it." Well allowing it really didn't play into this story. It was to late and already happening. I really could have died of embaressment right there in the middle of this establishment, not that is was really fine dining, they have balloons for the kids, soo...that really wasn't the issue. The people around us just kept staring as if watching a circus act or something. I just kept shooting looks of "Hey take a picture it will last longer" When in reality I really wanted to huck Ben's tippy cup right at there staring faces...

Learned lesson from this crazy act of rage from my child, I will never be so...judgemental of others in how they may or may not be raising their youngins...We are good parents, and try to teach our child as best we can, yet they have their own minds, thoughts, and emotions which they are learning to use everyday. It is just our job in trying to show them the right way, in the midst of their wrong doings.

Ben did not get to have his balloon back ,it went nighty, nite in the car. He was over it in probably the same milisecond it took to put his coat on, and would have gotten the balloon back to play with. And moments from that he was asleep in our bed, like the little angel I soo...adore.
