Me & Eggs

I bribed Campbell with a trip to Kneader’s to get him to poop this morning.  Don’t  judge…if your kid had gone 13 days without pooping last year, you’d resort to bribery too!

They screwed up and gave us an extra sandwich.

Bennett begged for it: “PEAS MAMA!”

I should have known.


Let’s have a closer look in that drawer:


That’s a fried egg.  And those of you that know me well are laughing your heads off right now.

I HATE eggs.

No, seriously…I can’t even smell them without dry heaving.  (I blame my mother.  She referred to them as “chicken periods” when I was a kid.)

I may have worn that orange rubber glove in the first picture to pick up the egg.


I’ve got a giveaway or 2 lined up for when I’m out of town later this week.  Stay tuned!

Please follow and like us:


  1. you've made my day. not only do you hate eggs, too, but you've got a little handful, too. i've got 3 (ha! jealous much?!?) but it's nice to know that it's just a boy thing!

  2. hahaha! that's hilarious! what a stinker.

  3. Yer such a pansy.

  4. Will you giving away the chicken menstruation sandwich? I'm game. But I prefer mine over-easy.

  5. Cheryl @ a pretty cool life. says:

    That drawer is pretty gross. Sorry.

    Now…13 days?! My boys couldn't make it 13 hours.

  6. No judgement here on the poop bribery. When DS was potty training, he was terrified to poop (even in his pull up) and went 8 days without pooping. We let him pick out a toy at Target, left it wrapped and put it on the ledge in the bathroom. We called it his "Poo Poo Prize" and told him when he pooped in the potty, he could have it. It took him another 2 weeks. But I'm all for bribery when the situation calls for it!

  7. Al, Wendy, Max, and Lil says:

    he he he…

  8. Jennifer says:

    He was just saving it for later! Boys are the best!

  9. Kimmie @ live fancy. says:

    Hilarious. Seriously- I'm laughing. :D

  10. The Harding Hive says:

    This made my day Char! You are hilarious and I think your life should be made into a movie.

  11. Melissa says:

    To solve Wednesday's bowel issues, we started giving her blended prune-yogurt-milk smoothies every morning and a teaspoon of cod liver oil in her milk at night. It takes a little while to make them regular but if you keep it up every day slowly they start to poop every two days or so and it is an easy one. I swear by it. Good luck mama!

  12. Marsha's Mpressions says:

    Just hilarious! Since my home is now haven to my daughter, her 18 month old, and 8 week old, I totally get it!

  13. Jessica says:

    fantastic! eggs do smell gross.

  14. Elizabeth says:

    LOL…….I'm surprised that you didn't just throw away the whole drawer and buy a new one! LOLOLOLOL

  15. I've just recently started reading your blog and today's post solidified that I *must* return often!

    Thanks for the "egg period" comment, I nearly spit my water out on my laptop!

  16. Yes, but how do you feel about pancakes?

  17. Simply Be Photo/Melissa says:

    wow 13 days, he must of been in some serious misery! and probably you too!

  18. Yes. Laughing my head off. Just a little.

  19. dixiemango says:

    Wow! That is cracking me up right now, thanks!

  21. Nurse Heidi says:

    Chicken periods?! Oh my gosh, I think you've just ruined eggs for me!! I can't decide if that's worse than my doctor friend that refers to them as aborted chickens…

  22. So funny. We had a friend who is in his twenties now. Every time he pooped, no matter who was at the house, we all got a popsicle!!! I thought sure that he would go to kindergarten with popsicles, but nope.
