Peryl the Cool Whip Queen
Posted on Thursday, June 17, 2010 — Listed under Cool Whip Queens
Happy Thursday to all my favorite
Meanwhile, let's get back to the real reason we are here today which is to crown the newest Cool Whip Queen—Peryl from Parenting Ad Absurdum. I've been following Peryl's blog religiously from the moment I found her. She is an amazing writer and has a way of validating every cell of my mommy being from my peanut butter stained fingertips down to my sparkle glitter stickered toes with her hilarious and insightful posts that cover everything from toddler vampire obsession to secret Wiggles love to Christmas bats to the unbearable kindness of four year olds.
Reasons to Have Children
For those times when one small child is screaming at brain rattling intensity over… what, I can't for the life of me figure out, and the other is discretely stuffing a roll of toilet paper down the sink drain, and I try to remember why I wanted children in the first place; for those times when the whole "loving something greater than yourself," and "perpetuation of the species" arguments just don't do it for me, I've compiled an ongoing, personal list of reasons why children really are good to have around.

another incredibly funny post. nice to "meet" you, Peryl. And as one of my twin daughters just spilled her glass of milk all over the table, I am reminding myself I am not alone and to take a deeeeeep breath.
Comments by erinAs always Peryl, an awesomely hysterical post! If I were to add a reason to that list, I'd have to say it's when my 2-year-old daughter tells me she misses me even though she's with me all day long. Or when my 6-year-old son tells me that I look pretty everytime I don something other than shorts and a t-shirt (which isn't very often these days). Great job Peryl!

Comments by MotpgFantastic blog. Too clever; I love it! Let's see, reasons I love having children today.....When they're sleeping, I can't cuddle them enough--they're so much more peaceful than when they're screaming at me because one got a fraction of an ounce more ice cream than the other. Seriously, I weigh the ice cream for fairness. Am I crazy?

Comments by parenting ad absurdummy 3-yr old said something about crabs too... when it was our turn with stomach-flu, and she wanted to be sick too (or at least she wanted the ginger ale) so she said she had crabs in her tummy that were eating the throw-up so that's why she wasn't throwing-up... love kids. ps naomi, if you haven't tried the nail polish it's also priceless but in a whole new way!

Comments by eliseOh, goodness -- hope you're all feeling better! And I have completely given up trying to explain to my son why he can't marry his sister. Now I've started telling people they're betrothed, just so that when he's 15 and people ask him about his fiancee, I can say, "I tried to explain it to you, you didn't listen, so I just went with it." And yay for Peryl! I adore her!

Comments by dusty earth motherOOooh, Chiggers! I had them once. Awful little bastards. I'm sure you know this but clear nail polish over the afflicted area will suffocate the chiggers and the itching will subside. I speak from experience. I thought my coworkers were trying to punk me ( when I lived in TN) but it worked. Thanks for featuring Peryl. I too have been a follower of hers for a long time. She is awesome and an amazing Mommy and one of my greatest of bloggy friends. I actually found you, via Peryl! Happy Mothering to you both. Hope you are feeling chigger free very soon.
