You Might Be a Redneck If...

...you wash your truck and your kids at the same time.


What is it with men and power tools?

And poor Jackson could only look out the window and wish he could join them. :*(

We parents of larger families certainly are efficient, aren't we?

AWWWWWWWWW poor Jackson. Just tape a plastic bag around the cast and send him out. This is what we did when my daughter broke her wrist. It worked great!

Oh, poor Jax! That is just so sad.

Poor Jackson!!!!!!!!!! Did you go ut and buy him pads after this happened? I too believe that it's in guys genes to get hurt. Whenever we watch those shows where people are doing stupid things I always comment to my husband that its always the guys that try stupid stunts because women are too smart to do dumb things.

When my 15 year old was about 9 he was riding his bike up a dirt pile at a local park. I kept telling him not to do it but he continued. A little bit later he went up lost his balance and fell over and was screaming the handle bar in his bike went into his groin and puntured it. We took him to the hospital and he ended up with stitches down there and he walked funny for about a week. He never learned either cause he still does stunts but now on a skateboard. but at least he has made it to 15 there have been days I wondered if he ever would.

Poor Jackson. That is truly pathetic. :-(
Dude, I love my pressure washer!

Becki said...

=) The only thing that seperates the boys from the men is the size/price of the toys they play with!

Brenda said...

The kids love it. I sometimes get in on it myself!

Sunny said...

Were you able to get it set with a cast yet?

Threeundertwo said...

Nice attempt at multi-tasking! Is he using a power washer on those kids? Does it get out that little boy smell?

I have a sunday question - I am thinking of starting a blog and have read of the practice of giving your kids "blog names". Did you do something like this or are the kids named after cities in real life?

Rick said...

Look at your husband! Why, he looks like Rambo with a power washer! I'm telling you (again) he's the man!

My sympathies to your son. We did exactly the same thing last year. Same week even. Skate park accident too. Really put a damper on our summer, especially when he had to have pins put in it. Oh well, this too shall pass...

Love it. There is nothing in the world so satisfying as soaking an unsuspecting child. Once, one of my kids ran by me and soaked me. He then ran in the house and stood behind the screen door, smirking.

I can't resist a good smirk. I turned the garden hose on him. It was worth the mess. Yes, it was.

I had to add my awww po' Jax!!

Looks like the rest were having a blast, nothin' like family bonding over a lit'l water!

Tape a plastic bag over his arm, it won't soak the cast. Then he doesn't have to gaze forlornly out the window at his siblings having fun! I'm a redneck mom too, only my new TV was on top of my old TV, lol. I'm about to go mow our lawn, but don't think I will fin another vehicle hidden there:)
Have a great day!

TheHMC said...

Aw, poor kid.

That is SO something my husband would do.

Shelle said...

Dang...didn't realize I was a redneck!LOL! I love your site...I have been a lurker...but decided to comment! You crack me up!

My Semblance of Sanity said...

We had a broken bone this weekend too!

3rd in a year!

MAN O H MAN!

Hope Jax is on the mend!!

Veggiemomof2 said...

Wrap a trash bag on his arm & leg him go! :)

Sue R said...

If you get a daily paper, those plastic bags can fit over some casts like they were made for them

Saw a "uses for vodka" article today, with pictures! http://green.msn.com/galleries/photos/photos.aspx?gid=200>1=45002

Nothing wrong with a little washdown for the whole family. . .
