Just a little glimpse into OUR crazy life. "Daddy" played by Shawn. "Mama" played by Amy. "3 wild, precious boys" played by Keith, Zack, and Griffin respectfully.

We are on a mini-vacation in "Wee-zee-ann-uh" (as Griffin says). I will have lots of fun pictures and stories to share once we return to reality. In the meantime, I have something special for my readers. A guest blogger. My BFF...my niece Maddie. Maddie, or Cupcake as I call her, is so much like me it's scary. And I love it. Her parents...maybe not so much. :) I asked Maddie if she'd like to be "in my computer" and she replied, "Yep." So I interviewed her. So here it is.
Me: Ok Maddie. I'm gonna ask you some questions so you can be on my computer. Maddie: Will Griffin be on there? Me: Nope. Just you. Maddie: Will Breanna be on there? Me: Nope. Just you. Maddie: Hurry up, I'm gonna go play with Griffin. Me: Yes Ma'am. Me: Maddie, what's your favorite song? Maddie: Hannah Montana. Me: Which Hannah Montana song? Maddie: The Limo out front. Me: Hey Duke (Maddie's Mom), is there a Hannah Montana song called The Limo out front? Amy/Duke: (singing) You've got the Limo out front. Me: I think that might be "The Best of Both Worlds." Maddie: No. It's The Limo out Front. Me: Alright Maddie, what's your favorite color? Maddie: Pink & Purple. Me: What is your favorite food? Maddie: Pickles! Me: What's your favorite drink? Maddie: Sprike. Me: Sprite? Maddie: Yeah. Sprike. Me: What's your favorite thing on TV? Maddie: 16 Wishes Me: What do you want to be when you grow up? Maddie: A Princess. Me: That's good. Which is your favorite Disney Princess? Maddie: Um.....The Princess and the Frog. Me: What is her name? Maddie: Who? Me: The princess on that movie? Maddie: I don't remember. MOMMA, what is her name on the Princess and the Frog? Amy/Duke: Tiana? Maddie: Yeah. Her. Me: What is your favorite place to go out to eat? Maddie: Mexican. Me: Where are you going to college? Maddie: Alabama. With Griffin. Amy/Duke: No you're not. You're going to LSU with Hannah. Me: Nope. She said it. She's going to Alabama w/Griffin. Gigi: Y'all stop fussing. Me: Maddie, who is your BFF (hoping she'd say me) Maddie: Griffin. Me: Tell me some things you are good at. Maddie: Handstands, cartwheels, splits. Me: You sure are. Now tell me some things you need to work on. Amy/Duke: Oh, I can think of LOTS of stuff here. Maddie: (glaring at her mom) Ummmm....I don't know. Working on trampolines I guess. (she looked out the window and saw the trampoline so I guess that sparked an answer) Me: Who is your pet? Maddie: Sassy the cat. Me: Who are you mad at right now? Maddie: Nobody. Me: That's good. Have you ever told a lie? Maddie: (without missing a beat) Nope. Never. Amy/Duke and Chris: (in unison) Whatever. You just told one right now. Maddie: No I didn't!! Me: What is your favorite thing to wear? Maddie: Dresses. Amy/Duke: Notice the pink and black dress she has chosen for her 4th of July outfit. Maddie: (glares at her Momma) I like to pick MY OWN clothes. Me: What do you wish? Maddie: I wish my Momma was a little kid. Amy/Duke: Why? Maddie: So me and Breanna could play with her and I would get my drivers license. Me: Ok. What kind of car are you gonna have when you turn 16? Maddie: A limousine. Me: What's your favorite toy? Maddie: A scooter *side note - you ought to see this girl on her scooter. she SCARES me she goes so fast on it.* Me: What food do you not like? Maddie: Soup. Me: What is your favorite kind of ice cream? Maddie: Banilla and strawberry. Me: Do you have any secrets that you can tell me? Maddie: Yep. (whispers to me) Patrick always says, "I like poo-poo pancakes." (then laughs maniacally) Me: That's a good one. Maddie: Yep! Are you gonna put it in your computer? Me: Yep, I sure am. Maddie: Good. I want my Momma to see it.
Just a small town girl, living in a lonely world, I took the midnight train going anywhere...no I didn't, but I'll bet you are singing along. I'm Amy. I'm just your typical smart aleck. I'm sarcastic, brutally honest, and one of the funniest people that I know. I crack myself up on a regular basis so of course I want to share my magic with the Interweb masses. I've always wanted to be a writer and a comedian, but until those jobs kick off I spend my days being a teacher, a Mama to 3 fabulously awesome boys, and a wife to Shawn.
