From Chicago, home of Abe Froman, the Sausage King, it's Sunday Sound Out with your host, the famous opera singer, Dawn Meehan! Fat lady sings - get it? Opera singer, fat lady, Dawn Meehan? No? I thought it was funny.
How did you come up with the names for your children? Are they all named after cities?
Yes, I used a copy of Rand McNally.
Um....is it a tattoo on Brooklyn's head?!Austin has some really nice teeth!!!
Hee hee, yeah there was a tattoo on her head in that picture of her and Austin. I mean, there wasn't really a tattoo on her head, but I was goofing off with Picnik.com and put a tattoo on Brooklyn at the same time I whitened Austin's teeth. I just forgot to take the tattoo off before posting the picture.
(Yes I know this is my second comment)Your hair is to pretty! I love your hair! I also feel the need to tell you that I'm the same way about barf... Whenever my sis throws up I can't even be NEAR it or I'll throw up! Sometimes even the THOUGHT of throwing up can make me nauseous... And it does. I've actually (Thank the Lord!) not thrown up in a long time, as of now. I've got a record of about a year and a half! I'd better stay away from those Black-n-White cookies...
Wow, a compliment on my hair AND a Seinfeld reference!!! You get 48 points for that!
Still wondering who the two babies are from last week's SSO.
Oh duh! I totally forgot about that!
This one's Brooklyn (like most of you guessed)
And Miss Lexington...
and hey, when's the big 40???? soonish? You can ask that on your sunday shoutout!?!
I have no idea what you're talking about. I'm in my thirtys. MY THIRTYS, I TELL YOU!
Did I miss something? Are you getting a divorce? :/
Yes and yes. But on the bright side, I think I've finally gotten the hang of remembering to take the garbage down to the curb every week.
By the way, what differentiates a Greek fisherman cap from a regular one?
A Greek fisherman cap has the word "Greek" in it.
Have you ever noticed on America's Funniest Home Videos, that the most outlandish stunts involve the male sex?
Yep! In fact, I wrote something about that in my book. To quote my daughter, "Boys are stupid." I love my sons, but yep, they come up with some pretty stupid ideas.
B was practicing her snowboard moves by jumping of sand dunes on the beach the other day. Maybe you need to live closer to the ocean?
And did you ever think you'd need to have such a rule??! :) [no snowboarding in the bedroom]
At the age of 2, Clay managed to start a golf cart and drive it into our camper. It only surprises me that I didn't have to institute this rule earlier!
Dawn, didn't you ever do anything that inventive when you were a kid?[snowboarding in my bedroom]
I don't think so. I once squirted a packet of ketchup at a girl in grade school and had to go to the principal's office. One time I chased my sister around the house with a straight pin. And once I was playing with my lamp (much more fun than my toys, I guess) and I burned a hole in my carpet with the lightbulb. I think that's about it because I was the awesomest of awesome kids. Stop laughing, Mom!
Another reason to love Target - did you know that Shaun White has a boys clothing line at Target????
No! Cool! I'll have to check it out!
I have 1 question, have you ever packed up those kids and moved houses? I'm moving across Canada soon and i have a 4yr old and a 15 mos old.. Any advice?
Nope. Not yet anyway. Not sure what will happen in the not-so-distant future though. My only advice is to take this opportunity to "accidentally lose" any annoying toys that make lots of noise and go through batteries like crazy.
OK, how to you get these statistics and how do you increase your searchability?
I use statcounter.com to see where my visitors come from. As far as increasing your searchability - I have no clue. Maybe write about new glasses or my glasses or her glasses or her contacts or her contact lenses or new contacts or my contacts or new contact lenses or my contact lenses.
BTW I saw your tweets and wanted to say that there IS a Barbie dog that poops. In fact the same poop is also the food. Quite disturbing. My daughter has it, but thankfully we "lost" the poop/food.
I've seen that dog. Yeah, that's not gross and disturbing at all. A dog that poops out the food so you can put it right back in the dog's mouth to poop out all over again. But now there's another one. It's some sort of potty training puppy and it comes with paper that turns yellow and brown after the dog "goes" on it.
I have a SSO question. Dear son has lost his last tooth. What do people do with their kids' teeth? Throwing them away seems callous. I worked hard to build those teeth. Saving them is also gross. When I come across that baggie with the dead teeth, I get a little chill. What have you done with them Dawn?
I made them into great, fashionable necklaces!
