tHrEe tHuRsDaY tHiNgS

Hey everybody!!

1. cOnFeSsIoN: I know it makes me a bad mom to firstly do it AND secondly then admit it to the blogs, but...

Ended up using store boughten cupcakes for Alivyiah and Tridger's 18 mo bday party. {criiiiiiinge!} Guys, store like
grocery store NOT cute bakery. Hows that for embarassing???? I hope and literally pray they don't hate me when their old. I knew my first mistake as a parent would hurt, i just didn't know it would hurt this much, ya know? So greatful for forgiveness, and frosting.

2. The most amazing thing about being 45 days preggo is that all of its fate relies in my hands. I heard I might not get a shower bc it's my third baby slash second pregnancy and I just want to say to all my friend's, do whatever you want, but if I don't get a shower with personalized favors, totes, and a bird theme I will loose it.

3. Will the universe space/time continual implode if I tell you that some yawny frump is yapping about me over at the Mormon Women Project today? Wieeeerd!

Gotta go hand out some "When was Labor Day? :( " stickers to anyone I spot wearing white at Costco or the Gateway. What can I say, service is love in action!

Loved reading the interview. I like that you like TAMN who definitely IS ". . . na├»ve and shallow and materialistic, but she means it and she just doesn’t know any better.". And I liked what you said about deserving a trophy.

Hilarious post. My favorite line:

"I knew my first mistake as a parent would hurt, i just didn't know it would hurt this much, ya know?"

GENIUS.

And, love the interview. I love you TAMN, and the chick behind you seems cool too.

Kim said...

Ashley said...

me said...

Jake, Megan, Ryder and Emma said...

Can I just say, You Rock! I am so happy to read your blog, it really makes my day!! :)

debbie said...

From here on out I will be looking at every Young Women's President and thinking she is brilliant, just to be sure that I appreciate the right one.

GladysIcanbee said...

TAMN, you soooooo need your ETSY shop back! I need a t-shirt " I knew my first mistake as a parent would hurt, i just didn't know it would hurt this much, ya know" and the Labor Day stickers...

And I seriously need to quit reading this at work. the sudden outbursts of laughter are just too much for some people.

Alex said...

To the woman behind TAMNERS- You are hilarious. This has become one of my favorite blogs. I loved everything you said in the interview.
I love how you bring out TAMN's voice in this blog.

If I was a TAMN I'd say,
Don't look at MY blog and use me as your joke, ...or DO, whatevs- but it's not like I need some kind of validation in the blah-gging world. I have followers two. HEARTS&PEACE

BreAnn said...

Ok, I'm only telling you this 'cause I care, but I heard your frumpers sis-in-law was planning a shower for you, only she wasn't going to have a theme, and the only game she was planning on having was that one where you have to guess the melted candy bar in the diaper, and the only decorations are going to be toilet paper stacked in the shape of a cake. (isn't that for bridal showers anyway?!) Yikes, please don't kill her/yourself/me.

Mom D said...

TAMN-I had a prompteen how you can give service to those you no and love. With cold and flew season right around the carner, you need to teach you're RS sisters the importance of cleaning the right way so there houses don't have orgasms growing in them that can make there familys sick. Can you imagine not cleaning the TAMN way before you take dinner to a new mom and their are orgasms in the food that makes her family sick to? That poor new mom has enough to dill with with trying to loose all her prego wait and looking hot and riotous and maternal at the same time without her kids and hubby getting sick cuz some one brought orgams into there home on axident.

(In all seriousness, a sweet, but naive sister actually taught a RS lesson on this, apparently not knowing the difference between organisms and ahem-you know!!!)

Jennie said...

I didn't make my first mistake till my kid was 18 months old as well! What a coincidink! Kindred spirits, you and I.

Erin said...

Ok. When I first came upon your blog, I didn't know the premise of it. I didn't know that you were making fun of the person in all of us who tries to be "perfect". After I read the interview, I understood it better. I think you are spot-on. I appreciate the time you take to write this because, I know I can always use a good laugh, especially if I can relate it to me. Go TAMN!

Lauren said...

Mom D, I think I would have had to pinch my kid to make them cry so I could get out of RS before I exploded with laughter. A whole lesson on cleaning so we don't have any orgasms? Poor lady.

PS TAMN creator: you're a genius and I love reading your blog. Thanks for many good laughs.

Lydia said...

bahahahah orgasms growing in their houses!

Kathryn said...

I wore white today. On purpose. HA!

Motion DeSmiths said...

Mom D and Lauren-- you have to be spiritually clean or ELTSE you'll have orgasms. Duh.

Real TAMN - You're my heroine.

Sarah said...

Love the interview. I agree with you on so many points. I especially agree that this never seems to mock the LDS Church, just some of the cultural things that get blown out of proportion.

Sarah said...

PS, Mom D, you just killed me.

Mhana said...

Aren't you going to explain why you ruined your children's half birthday with Albertsons garbage? Seriously, I LURVE cake rex and it has taught me NeVeR to trust store boughten unless it is an exclusive expensive one of a kind bakery and even then its better to spend three days and $200 trying to replicate the effect myself. Also, do we not get a pick of the pee stick? 'Cause I Won't believe your preggo until I see the stick

Sarah said...

TAMN-
cOnFeSsIoN: I don't noe which is worse, that you {DID} it or that you {ADMITTED} it. Either way, ick.

P.S. - I have 3 kids (FoRtH oN tHe WaY! wAhOo!) and I still haven't made any mistakes. I'm just sayin...

Sarah said...

BBSSB (Brain Behind SSB)-
My sister-in-law and I had a discussion about whether or not you were mean-spirited. I was certain that you were not. Thanks for the interview, now she's a believer too. And now I know you are, in fact, better than me. Great. Oh well, I think I'm doing better than TAMN...most days.

jdb in AZ said...

Mom D, did that lesson on organisms or whatever you call it come to a fitting climax?

Jewel said...

Oh, my word....
Thank you, Mom D. I now have a brilliant idea for my next relief society lesson.

Natalie said...

Loved the interview TAMN! I've been a fan of the blog for about a year now and was pleased to find out that you seem to be the type of person I thought you were. As a dental student wife, I do see a lot of truth in what you write and I get such a kick out of it. Thanks for creating such a fun blog and making me laugh (even if it's at myself sometimes).

Jessica said...

Ha ha ha!!! When was Labor Day stickers? OMGosh TAMN....that was pretty much the most amazing thing you've ever said. You are so charitable it's unbelievable. I want to be just like you.

Sunny said...

OMHeck! Totes lurved your innerview on that other blog. Thanx fur sharing ur super speshal and sweet spirit with us.

Mom D said...

Dear Jewel, Thank you for helping to spread the word that we all have orgasms in are homes that can make us sick. We have a duty to warn are neighbors b/c we don't want them to get sick from orgasms. I'll bet frumpy old Ruth has LOTS of orgasms in her house.

Laurel said...

Great interview, TAMN! And FYI I packed away my white skirt and sandals, so I won't be needing a sticker. Thanks though.

Elisa said...

I'm so happy that you're really a YW president. I couldn't help but grin when I read that. :)

SkippyMom said...

But, but... I thought store bought cupcakes WERE the proper nosh for an eighteenth month birthday?

::Wailing:: The failure. And I have done it FIVE times.

I am surely going to some kind of mother hell for this. Y'know there is one right?

[love the blog - too funny]

Heather said...

You should take them to Pirate Island for their next birthday. That's what I do:-) LOL! Easy and effortless. They might be too young now but they have story time and stuff there too. The website is http://www.pirateislandusa.com/

daltongirl said...

TAMN, if I were you (I wish!) I would totally NOT read that article you linked to. Don't worry. I didn't believe any of those rude things they said about you. You're still my hero!

Lisa Marie said...

I laughed harder at Mom D and the people commenting about her comment than I did at TAMN's original post! I would have died if I'd been at that RS night. OMGosh.

I did love the interview and the Labor Day sticker idea though. Awesome.

Kathryn said...

Hi TAMN, I need to apologize for my previous comment. I didn't have a clue that this is a spoof blog. Some of your very gracious readers e-mailed me and let me know. (They truly were very nice abut it.)

Even if what I said earlier was applicable, I should have waited a day or so before commenting so I could have calmed down and been more civil.

I do wish that it was more apparent in your "About Me" section that this is a spoof blog. Because even though I read it several times trying to figure you out, I didn't get it.

But most of all, I just want to say sorry for my previous comment. I take back what I said about un-subscribing. :)
