Monday Morning Updates: Sweet and Sassy



Sassy Part:

Conversation with my daughter last night.....

Nat: Mom, what's "Hammertime"??

Me: Uh......

Nat: What's that mean?

Me: Here, let me show you. (Gets MC Hammer videos on Youtube) Watch this. Knock yourself out, kid.

A few minutes later.....

Nat: Mom, watch this new dance move!

Natty starts doing the Hammertime foot shuffle thingie on the hardwood kitchen floor. She's sliding along the kitchen floor, back and forth, back and forth. I am laughing my ass off. Lucy, the weenie dog, is wagging her tail and decides she does not want to be left out of this fun activity, so she latches onto Nat's leg and starts humping for all she's worth. (I know....it's weird that a female dog is humping, but evidently Lucy didn't get that memo). So, Nat is doing the Hammertime foot shuffle, Lucy is humping her leg as she glides across the floor, and I am laughing my ass off.

Who needs the freakin' superbowl?

Now, onto the sweet part....

Believe it or not, I read a Christan inspirational romance yesterday....and I loved it! The Unlikely Wife by Debra Ullrick is a very sweet and touching romance. Sure, it's a little bit heavy on the Christian stuff--there is a lot of praying and sermonizing--but the overall story, which pairs a poor tomboy mail-order bride and a well-to-do farmer out west, is adorable. This is a rated G story, but the sentiment is totally satisfying.

Grade: A

Weekend round-up.....Pats lost, Nat learned how to do the Hammertime Foot Shuffle with a humping weenie dog hanging on her leg, and I read a rated G inspirational romance and I liked it. Wacky!

Happy Monday,
Penelope

Hmmm, Christian romance vs leg humping Hammer-time weenie dog. Both sound fun!
Go Natty, go Natty, go Natty! Hammer time!
Sometimes you just like fun and sweetness.

Penelope said...

Hi Amber! Thanks....it was fun for me, but hubby wasn't too happy about the ending of the Patriots game. Uh oh!

Penelope said...

Hi Juju....my girl dog sure does hump! It's embarrassing! My daughter just laughs and shakes her off...hee hee!

Penelope said...

Yes, Julia....it was a weird Sunday night at our house. Carl screaming "You suck!" at the TV, Natty and Lucy dancing in the kitchen, and me trying to sneak away with my Kindle. Natty now wants to get some MC Hammer pants for the talent show at school! :^)

Thank you, Penelope, for your sweet comments about my book, The Unlikely Wife. I'm thrilled that you enjoyed it and even more excited that you took the time to let me know.

Thanks again.

You rock!

Debra!!!!! I'm so glad you stopped by. I just loved that book...it was recommended to me by a friend at Goodreads. It was such a sweet, romantic love story. Wonderful!

Debra Ullrick said...

Boy you sure know how to make a person feel great! I'm so excited to hear that someone recommended my book to you. That is way kewl!!!!

Peace out,
Debra Ullrick

I am LMAO at the visual of your daughter and dog doing the Hammer. When we ask my two year old nephew what time is it he always says: Camma time! I don't know why he hasn't gotten the hang of the H yet but it's so cute! Kids are so much fun.

Penelope said...

Hi Jade! My daughter is dying to get a pair of those Hammertime pants. I'm not sure where to get them. I think her teachers will laugh if she does that dance at school for the talent show!
