Life lessons learned in the minivan

You can see more in the light,

But you can think and feel more in the dark.


However, you can smell the most

when trapped in a minivan with four gassy kids.

***

I know... it's profound stuff.

You're welcome.

profound is right!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

AHAHAHAHAHA! You are so profoundly right! :)

Tammy Howard said...

My sixth grader is very concerned because they have an overnight lockdown thing at the school in a few weeks. She does not want to be locked in an enclosed place with a bunch of stinky sixth graders. She approached her teacher to ask if showers would be available. It's ONE night! But she does have a point...

beth said...

so true, so true! hehe!

Lindy said...

You would be correct...and gross.

Kris said...

now that's a roadtrip... or should I say road-rip?

It's nice to know it's not just those of us with boys! :)

TKW said...

Oh dear. Was it all that McD's?

The Good Cook said...

I got rid of my minivan the day I had to drive my boss to lunch and when he got out there were Fruit Loops stuck to the seat of his pants.

Come to think of it, it was right around the time I got rid of that job too!

We avoided one of those yard ape haulers all while raising two boys to manhood.. Now we have one, and love it!

Beth Dunn said...

Oh the joys! xoxo

Kristina P. said...

I don't even have kids, and I could have written this.

Stephanie Faris said...

Hilarious. Just being trapped in a minivan with one gassy kid is bad...I can't imagine four!

Lani said...

hehee, so true, thanks for the laugh:)

Grand Pooba said...

Wow, that's deep stuff Kathy B!

LadyFi said...

Profound and true! In our case, it's two kids, a husband and a dog! Gassy...

Reason 473: Why I'll never own a minivan.

Kathy B! said...

ck: But if I didn't have a minivan I'd have to have a Suburban (or something equally large) and then I'd probably drive over top of someone. I'm sticking with my bus :)

~Laura said...

Too funny and gross and true! All at the same time.

heidi said...

Wax on, wax off sensei. Deep thoughts by Kathy B. :-)

K said...

Time to crack a window!

The Blonde Duck said...

I would be gagging.

Jen said...

Ewwwwww!

M-Cat said...

UGH! Not a fun trip down memory lane for me. Thanks : )

Danielle said...

I would take 4 gassy kids over 1 gassy husband any day. Seriously, how can one person create such oders.

WhisperingWriter said...

Oh gosh, it's especially fun when your husband is also gassy...

naptimewriting said...

so true it should be in a fortune cookie. But Danielle's is prescient, too...

Susie said...

That is hilarious!!

CynthiaK said...

Amazing. Truly amazing. How do you come up with this stuff? I'm in awe. ;)

BTW, used that iStockphoto image for the cover of a proposal once! It's such a great picture!

peewee said...

wow, screw Flavia and Emily Dickens! It's ALL KATHY B. now!

blueviolet said...

All four of them are letting it fly at once. That shot must be your way of professing to the heavens to go ahead and take you!

Michele said...

Fresh fruit season is just about over. What are you feeding those kids???

Jane said...

LOL. Thanks for the giggle. I needed that just now - but now grossing myself out because it's so true!

Mox said...

At least they can keep themselves entertained in the car. That's a plus.

P.S. I'll be front and center.

Yaya said...

You are hilarious!

ModernMom said...

Bwahhh hahaha Thanks for the giggle!

for a different kind of girl said...

Reading this post was like getting the perfect fortune in my fortune cookie without the guilty feelings of eating my greasy meal and delicious (yet also greasy) egg roll!

Hit 40 said...

This poem reminded me of the SNL skit of deep thoughts by Jack Handy?? I think that was his name.

passions and soapboxes said...

What on earth did you feed them? too too funny. I can just picture you in a van with the two of you wearing WWII gas masks in front and the kids in back with big toothy grins on their faces. ha ha

Laoch of Chicago said...

Fear the minivan!

ScoMan said...

That should be somewhere in the parenting handbook.

Justin Narin said...

That is certainly profound ;) should have lowered a one or two windows just a little.

How about a bunch of stinky kids and a super stinky 80-lb lab? Yeah, that's my life.

Janie Woods said...

Add to that the husband, beer, tailgating and stadium nachos...YUM!!!

These are the reasons why my sunroof is perpetually open, even in rain...I'm already in hell, the rain isn't nothing I can't handle!!

faemom said...

Ah, road trips. They rock.
