You Found Me HOW???

OK, first things first. My good friends Mimi and Michelle are on a crusade to wipe out childhood cancer. For those of you who are new to my blog, Mimi lost her precious 4 year old, Julian, to cancer only 5 months ago. Check out these videos that Mimi's been slaving away on. She had to make three (in fact, she's working on a fourth one) because there were just so many kids who have battled/are battling cancer. Make sure you have tissues nearby.
Video One
Video Two
Video Three
When you're done watching these videos, click HERE to sign this petition. I know it takes a couple minutes and it's kind of a pain, but as Mimi says - it could happen to you. In the blink of your eye, you could get that dreaded diagnosis - cancer. As your whole world crumbles away, wouldn't you want someone in your corner, fighting for your child?
And God has gifted Michelle with incredible artistic talent and she's putting it to use to raise money for childhood cancer. Check out the link for 4 THE KIDS over to the right there -------------> Michelle is also walking for the kids in her Relay for Life. The link for that is HERE. Thank you for taking the time to check these out and/or donate money and/or pray that a cure is soon found! :)

Reminder - you have until midnight central time on Friday to leave a comment on THIS POST listing your 3 favorite mom websites. The winner will receive a set of Wonder Pet beanies..."We're not too big and we're not too tough, but when we get together, we've got the right stuff." Oh joy, I'm going to have that little ditty in my head for the rest of the night. Anyway, you'll get the set of beanies AND a $75 gift card for Good For the Kids!!! Meanwhile, check out Angie's variety of safe sippy cups which are free of Bisphenol A (BPA Free), phthalates and DEHA. She's also got a ton of toys to nurture and engage your little ones like Melissa and Doug puzzles and Zoobie pets.

I haven’t a clue about what you just said, so here is a rabbit with a pancake on its head.

I try to make my way to you but still I feel so lost I don’t know what to say, what else to do. Don’t give up on me yet, don’t forget who I am I know I’m not there yet, but don’t leave me alone

I don’t know if what I did was right or wrong, guess I will never know. But, I made it, and I guess I should be thankfull for that.

ROFLOL! Scratching my head here and wondering what people are thinking!

Sara said...

Hehe! I love the random rhyming ones at the end!

cakeburnette said...

I can explain the "rabbit with a pancake on it's head" one...although I'm wondering exactly who googled it...

There is a message board site that had some drama about a poster who had sort of "stolen" someone else's identity and was using it as her profile. Some other folks decided to "out" her to the board, and in the beginning it was all very weird and disjointed. One of the board administrators posted a picture of a bunny with a pancake sitting on its head and the caption that was googled. It's a pretty small community, so I'm dying to know who googled it and got to you.

Joy said...

What's with all the people searching Butt related stuff!?! LOL

you said a while back that you were going to have more items on ebay. What is your ebay id?

Robin said...

Thank you for sharing the link to Mimi's videos. So sad. Those poor little babies and the ones they leave behind. She did a nice job on them.

Sherri said...

Dawn, your blog brings laughter to my day. My favorite three mommy blogs are:

Bad mommy! Bad, Bad Mommy
Mommy Needs a Cocktail
and yours of course

SeriousCat said...

Some of those are hilarious, some are just mind boggling and some look like drunk monkeys got to the keyboard.

Laurie said...

Ya know, ALL moms totally get the "butt" frequency of your posts. Kids=butts...its just funny!!

Heather said...

Thanks Dawn! I needed a smile today and now my kids are looking at me like I'm crazy for laughing!

I'm seeing a scary new trend in googling- trying to make Dawn's list...

fawndear said...

Wow Dawn, I just noticed the time you posted. Do you ever sleep?

Amber said...

Thanks for posting the cancer petition link. Funding and media attention are so important for finding cures. I couldn't view the videos because my daughter is currently battling cancer herself, but I'm sure they are heartwarming.

Allison Hill said...

Actually, the rabbit with the pancake on it's head is from fark.com...I don't know if you've ever read that site but it's hilarious. I seriously recommend going on saturday, known on fark as "caturday", when everybody hauls out their best photoshopped and captioned cat pictures. Basically the rabbit picture is posted whenever anybody says anything stupid or completely off-subject. I don't know to what cakeburnett is referring to, but whoever posted it on that site got it originally from fark.

Now that that's done, I have to say that you're my hero, and I love reading your blog!

When I first saw your post titles I thought you were asking how the weirdos who read you blog found you....read: ME. I found you because someone sent me the EBay listing.

Kia said...

Dawn, I didn't know how else to contact you to ask would you possibly link to this digital scrapkit on behalf of 2 children, Abbey & Declan, who have been abused by their parents.

Valarie said...

Your google keyword searches are always so hilarious. Mine are always so boring. *sigh* I'm sure hearing one more person whining about a little trivial thing is probably just what you need in your life, huh? :)

TheHMC said...

I get scarier ones on mine every day. Yours make me laugh though. The ones I get just scare the crap out of me.

Kimberly said...

Hey Dawn! My husband says he's so glad I found you. Something about me not ever laughing before...
anyway, my FIL sent me this e-mail. I literally had to stop and catch my breath between paragraphs I laughed so hard. Seeing as you recently had a bunch of check-ups, I thought you'd enjoy it as well!

Love the personalized search messages for you!

And umm..my first grader puts things like dirt and grass in her backpack. When questioned as to why she had handfuls of grass in her backpack, she answered, "Cause I picked it." Oh. Makes perfect sense now. Stupid me.

Krystina said...

hey dawn,
you said that your migraines stopped coming after you had kids? as in, all of the sudden or did they gradually die down, or just take physical form? lol, just kidding, i know you love them. the kids, not headaches...

Shannon said...

You always keep me laughing!

My favorite mom/family sites are:
Upstatemoms.com
family.org
flylady.net

I also like facebook because I can keep in touch with friends and get some "me" time instead of just "Mommy"

Wannabe mom of 6 said...

LOL!! My family just finished looking at me like I'm insane because I've been laughing so hard! I once googled you with Dawn's funny butt or something lol. Just wanted to share :)

Oh and by the way, the illustrating for my book is done! I'm so excited to see it all finished! I'll be getting it Tuesday!! EEEEEEE <--- my impersonation of you sounding excited for me :)

Chelf said...

"just a fool to believe she's got disease you tube"

Are we sure they are searching for Dirty Dancing videos, or are they seriously talking about a disease? Do they have diseased women lying on You Tube? Maybe they need to search for more misheard lyrics.

Beth said...

Hey Dawn! I thought I would step out of my comfort zone and leave a comment...

Cancer sucks! I didn't make it through the first video and I was in tears. My hubby said no more for me, being that I am currently pregnant with baby number one. He says I stress enough!

My three favorite parenting sites are:

http://www.goodforthekids.com/

http://playgroup.meetup.com/544/
(a Pittsburgh Moms group)

http://mom2my6pack.blogspot.com/
(and of course I can't get by without my daily birth control... ;-) I think we are stopping at two! You are one unbelievably awesome mother & wife!)

Michelle said...

So so funny. I can only hope that one day I get just one lovely google search like that. But maybe I need to change what I'm posting about. More about bodily functions and annoying children's songs! ;)

AZTutti said...

Love the misheard song lyrics. There is a website just for them called www.kissthisguy.com. Good for a laugh or three

The Cochran Zoo said...

You are HILARIOUS! I read your online auction and that is how I ended up here.

My favorite sites are:
www.soulcysters.net
www.babycenter.com
www.cafemom.com
www.leapsandbounds.com

Thanks so much for your comical approach to child-rearing.

BoufMom9 said...

LMAO! People really type in the strangest things and strangely enough, your blog pops up! hahaha

You got me addicted to finding out the odd words people type that find my blog too, but I have yet to have anything as odd as you do. LOL

Rick said...

How come the search that deal with "body functions" lead to your blog?

Nef B.F. said...

I may not be a parent yet, but your blog has been a great source of entertainment for me. I first came across your blog when searching for pokeman cards, but to my dismay it was an old auction. Any hoots, You're blog's the best.

My boys are Army Brats said...

I really love the "how did you find me" posts. People are crazy!
