In her defense, perhaps she was just attempting to demonstrate her lesson plan explaining the effects of gravity (and Two-Buck Chuck).
Turns out, flip-flops can say a lot beyond their slightly obnoxious smacking sound.
A little something I cooked up for NickMom
If you happen to have a cat when you become pregnant, there invariably will be people who will tell you that you MUST get rid of the poor feline for any variety of crazy reasons — from cats “stealing babies’ breath” (has never happened) to cats’ dander making the air less “pure” (no more so than babies’ dirty diapers, let me tell you). I can tell you from experience that cats not only make adorable, harmless companions for babies, but can also serve as helpful baby accessories:
1. Cat as baby blanket.
2. Cat as boppy.
3. Cat as teddy bear.
4. Cat as protective belt.
5. Cat as toddler pillow.
I now interrupt your regular programming of family-related absurdity to let you know about something near and dear to my heart…
While conducting behind-the-scenes interviews for the ABC game show Bet on Your Baby, I was lucky enough to get to chat with 5-year-old Joshua Miller and hear how Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has helped him. Joshua was born with challenges associated with a condition called Werner Mesomelic Dysplasia with Hirschsprung Disease, caused by genetic mutations. He has undergone multiple surgeries on his heart and limbs, and his feet were amputated when he was a toddler, so he relies on artificial legs. He’s also incredibly bright and was seriously 10 times more agile and gregarious than anyone else in the room. Such a beautiful spirit and inspiration.
To help other kids like Joshua, be sure to join me (@CandyKirby) and other wise-cracking moms on Twitter on Saturday from 8-9 ET, where we’ll be live-Tweeting “Bet on Your Baby” on ABC (Joshua makes an appearance! And, oh my, he is such a ham!) and chatting about the sillier side of parenthood (as we’re prone to do) — and, for every Tweet we generate, Luvs will donate one diaper to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Just use the hashtag #LuvsBOYB. So we’ll be laughing and Tweeting for a great cause!
The other funny moms joining our Twitter par-tay are @snarkymommy @mamabirddiaries @annsrants @nodomesticdiva @robinobryant.
Hope to chat with y’all then!
Hugs, kisses and tweets,
