Life is Funny - Pumpkin Pie and Monkey Man


Here it is folks! Round 2 of the Life is Funny Carnival! Jump on in!


My daughter, Pumpkin Pie, and my nephew, Monkey Man, adore each other. When they get together it's as if the rest of the world doesn't exist. They'll play for hours and be happy as clams. They get right up in each other's faces and talk and talk and talk. My mom says that they act like two little old people when they're together. It really is pretty darn cute.

The other day, I took Pumpkin Pie over to my folks house. They've been building this house for a while now and it's getting to the finishing stages - putting paint on walls, waiting for carpeting, putting on doorknobs... Well, Monkey Man came over that day too, and the two were off chattering away and having a great time. I went about doing some painting and getting things done, until...

I walked into another room to see my nephew talking through a hole in a door where the doorknob would soon be placed. And what was on the other side of that door? My daughter, going potty. She might be using the facilities, but that's no reason to stop talking! Right through the hole in the door. Oh, how I wish I had a picture of that...

Kids really make life funny.

Ready to play? Here's what you do.

1. Anytime this week, blog about what in life you find funny. It could be something that happened during the week, your general impression about why life is funny, or even just your favorite joke. Be creative!

2. Please put a link to my blog in your post. And I'd appreciate it if you'd add my carnival button (made for me by Andie - thanks so much Andie!) to your post. To make this easy, I've put the code to do so under my blog button on my sidebar to the right.

3. After you've posted, come back here and sign up on Mr. Linky below. For the first box, put your name and your blog (example: Wendy @ Weight...What?), then your URL in the second box. Make sure you link directly to your "Life is Funny" post (not to your main page) so we can all read what you have to say.

4. Visit all the other participants and see what they have to say, even if you don't have a blog of your own. And very important: Comment, comment, comment! Oh, how we love getting comments...

5. If you Twitter, please tweet about this - the more participants, the merrier!

So go out and spread the laughter! I can't wait to see what everyone has to say!

I mean really...why should a perfectly good conversation get ruined just because one of the conversees need to use the facilities?

That's cute. I wish my kiddos had cousins nearby!

Your daughter is gorgeous! I cannot resist red head kiddies!!!! I just melt at the site of them! I'm a redhead too and people used to call me "Elizabeth" from The Waltons when I was little.

Your blog is hilarious! It amazes me when people can set up a very funny scene on these blogs. Good job! I'll have to think about a good "life is funny" moment....I know I have them daily, just producing them on my blog doesn't come naturally to me, like it does you! :)

Hi Wendy - I did it!! You happened to be my muse for my recent blogpost. Thanks for pushing me on this one. I needed the great break.

Btw - your beautiful daughter makes me smile everytime I see her picture :)!

She is too cute! I would say that family has to be one of the funniest things in my life so that's what I just posted about too!
