    You know I had to google the wooly booger joke.

  • HeatherArmstrong

    There are variations on it, depending on whose butt you want the wooly booger to attack.

    Marlo reminds me so much of my second daughter, it’s insane. And I just put that chicken/sweet potato recipe on my To Eat list.

    It didn’t even occur to me to do that! *googles…* Lol. Nice.

    But man, as much as I love this post (and I do, I do!) I wish there were video, or even just pics, of Marlo’s epic story session.

    Dang I want some silver moon boots too.

    I think my father used to tell that joke, too. In fact, I can hear him yelling the punchline in my head as we type.

    I know everything feels shitty, but it’s your shitty. It’s a good shitty in the end. You have a wonderful, fucked up, normal family. At least we all have that to celebrate.

  • SOOZ

    I love your writing. Period.

  • HeatherArmstrong

    Yes. I will always celebrate my amazing family. I am so lucky.

  • HeatherArmstrong

    Thank you. I appreciate this.

    For the chicken, what do you like to do with the potatoes? I know you shred the chicken, but do you then like mash the potatoes into the sauce? Or chop them? Because I am making this for lunches to hold me through Xmas and I am excited.

    It’s on a post from last week, I think, where she recapped the game night.

    I keep trying to enter the WII contest, but it won’t take the “secret” characters that you have to type in…

    Marlo will be such a fantastic joke teller one day! She brings joy to my life – I can only imagine how much she lights up yours! :)

    I have gone back to every post from 11/25 forward. Cannot find the chicken/sweet potato recipe. Really sounds good, can you help?
