Boom Baby!

This is #2’s FAVORITE thing to say.

He wakes up in the morning…BOOM BABY!

I serve him his dinner…BOOM BABY!

He gets released from prison time out, that’s right…BOOM BABY!

At first, I found it quite comical.

Then it moved dangerously close to the annoying department (especially when he said it after time out, because it sorta cheapened the whole thing, as though he was wholly unaffected by my attempt to impose my silly little rules upon him).

Now I’m starting to appreciate it for it’s ability to up the awesome on the most mundane, everyday tasks.

Can you even guess how much more amazing flushing the toilet is when there is someone saying BOOM BABY as it happens?

BOOM BABY is quickly turning into our family mantra (or motto like Mama Kat suggested for the week's Writer's Workshop. And, so what if I'm cheating a wee little bit, she'll forgive me because she loves me! Right Mama K? You do love me, don't you? I mean, that's just the impression I got when we spent that night in Vegas together. Wait...What?! What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas?! I thought you were different. I thought this was special. Like we had something.).

You know, some people say let’s roll, we say BOOM BABY.

So, while the unveiling of the First Annual Merry Effing Christmas Photo Contest entries may already be full of more excitement and anticipation than one holiday photo contest can stand, how ‘bout a little more?

Casa de Dummies style!

Here they are.

In random order.

With captions you will love, or hate, or love to hate.

For your voting pleasure (however, you may only do so once per day!).

Merry Effing Christmas.

BOOM BABY!!!

1. From When Did I Become My Mom?

when became mom

2. From Adrian’s Crazy Life (get the full story on this one, by clicking the link)

adriancrazy

3. From My Life…Badly Written (another with a worth-reading back story)

amandabadlywritten

4. From My Life in Words (more this-is-a-true-story action)

andrias

5. From Seven Clown Circus (I added the elf b/c without it, the picture was just too dang cute! It was stifling my funny. My original caption was, “I love Angie even if her hair looks kinda wonky.” That’s just not funny. So, in goes creepy little elf dude and out comes a caption I can be proud of! )

angie

6. From Confessions of a Semi-Slacker Mom

BARBOURFAMILY

7. From She Says the Darndest Things

BATHGE

8. From For What it’s Worth or Not

jahnke for what its worth or not

9. From Honest To Betsy

basketkids

10. From I’m Just Sayin’ (who I just realized I forgot to say congrats on baby’s birth to when he was born nearly 2 months ago, because I’m an insensitive idiot who reads and responds to comments via email instead of visiting blogs to check up on people like I should. Sorry, don’t hate me! And, when he’s not screaming because he hates his mommy’s idea of a cute suit, he is quite the cutie, so go take a peek!)

kerrijustsayin

11. From Blogbaby. Where naughty is the new black and gifts for Christmas are so 2000 and late.

2009 Christmas Card - Bah Humbug1

12. From Life With Kaishon.

lifewithkaishon

13. From 4 Lettre Words. And, no. It’s not a typo.

Lettre - Crazy Card

14. From Peanut Butter in My Hair. Winner of the Least Likely to Ever Get a Good Picture of Her Kids Award.

mamab

15. From Supah Mommy. Reining PBD Photo Contest Champ and resident Overachiever. Obviously I didn’t make this card since it looks all pro-fes-sion-Al.

contest

16. From All You Need is Love

mamajules

17. From Mom Most Traveled

mommosttraveled

18. From The Mommyologist (who should get extra points for blog name originality, I think.)

MOMMYOLOGIST

19. From The Daily Dribbles. Another overachieving, contest host shower upper who made her own card just to rub my face in her graphic design skilldizzels because she’s awesome like that.

Merry Effing Xmas(2)

20. From Night Light Stories

nose picker

21. From Food Don’t Grow on Trees, owner and operator of one of the cutest sets of triplets ever.

sindy

22. From The Triplet Crown, owner and operator of the other cutest set of triplets I’ve ever, who is also crazy brave enough to be pregnant with baby #4.

mira

23. From Superdumb Supervillain (another best-blog-title nominee)

suberdumbsupervillain

24. From Tracy’s Topics

tracy's topics

25. From True Confessions of a Single Mother

trueconfessionsofasinglemother

26. From Hip as I Wanna Be

jeng

27. Last but not least, from The (Un)Experienced Mom

unexperiencedmom

28. The real last but not least, but momentarily forgotten in my exhaustion induced haze, from Measuring My Life in L-O-V-E (who gets an extra vote for being added a day late). Thanks for showing your panties!



29) The real, real seriously this time, I'm like 99.9% sure this is the last forgotten entry from Hiding from the Kids, who has every right to boycott this contest, this blog, and me (aka the worst photo contest hosting blog owner EVER) in general. So, in an effort to prevent being hated on by her plethora of readers, I'm gonna give her 2 free votes just because I suck. Please don't hate me, because then I'll have to blog about it, and I'm WAY too tired to blog right now!



*Official Rules
: One vote per person per day. No anonymous voters accepted. Voting will close at 6pm on 12/18/09. Winner and runners-up will be announced 12/19/09.

Boom Baby!

Dang you other contest participants and your excellent entries....I spit in your general direction. Not on you, 'cuz that's gross but certainly in a 5 foot radius from you so TAKE THAT!

You can give notice to all of your babies....it's on Baby, it's on.

I vote for BigBoy and I - number #11

BlogBaby

The (Un)Experienced Mom said...

Woohoo! I only have to beat out 26 other contestants. Yep, got a REAL shot! ;-)

Seriously though, they were all effing hilarious! Merry effing holidays all!

Adrian's Crazy Life said...

These are all great, but I think #2 takes the cake for uniqueness, especially when you consider that I had paid for 40 copies of it and was literally putting them into the envelopes to send to all our friends and relatives before I noticed the offending finger. Gotta love teenagers!

Kmama said...

LOL! I love the caption you put on mine. I THOUGHT we were supposed to make our OWN cards. Hell, I wouldn't have spent so much damn time on it if I knew you were going to do it! LOL

Evonne said...

Wow! Picking your nose might be easier than picking the best, um worst, card!

I just have to go with #16. Great caption...and that is exactly why I send out boxed cards!!

Lisa Curcio said...

Those are funny!

I vote for #27!

BlogBaby said...

So we can only vote once a day, right?

Mmmmhmmm...yep, that's what you said and since my first vote was at 11:47 pm yesterday and it is now 12:20 am, I am voting again...FOR ME - #11!

P.S. Dumb Mom - You can link to BlogBaby now, you know if you wanna, 'cuz I noticed mine was missing a link.

The (Un)Experienced Mom said...

Opps...forgot to post my vote. Of course, it's #27! ;-)

The (Un)Experienced Mom said...

Ok, seriously mad I didn't put my # in the first post, which was 11:58pm on 12/12!

My 2nd post was q12am on 12/13....please can you count my first post as an actual vote for me...b/c honestly, you KNOW I am going to vote for myself.

*Smacks dumb blonde head!*

The Mommyologist said...

Ok, so of course I'm voting for my little butt-crack boy...#18 from The Mommyologist. Who'd a thunk that a butt crack could get you nominated in such a fun contest? I can't wait to pull out this photo on Prom night!!

bksmoney said...

#11 is fanfreakintastic.

Shannon said...

Boom BABY! I LOVE it!
I think you may (or your lil one) have coined a new phrase in the blogosphere!

And # 18 is PRICELESS!!!

Traci said...

Only one complaint -- next year, please post the following warning: "Go to the restroom before viewing the following cards!".

Too funny. I seriously almost peed myself laughing -- Boom Baby!

WeaselMomma said...

#14 PB in my hair! That's who I'm voting for.

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Seriously. Funny.

I didn't get to play along this year because Princess Nagger decided it was the perfect week to get sick and feverish. Though if I had stuffed her in her Christmas finery and plopped her in front of the tree, I might have been a contender. ;)

I'm casting my vote for #6!

Now I'm going back to look at them all again and laugh the night away... ;)

Jen said...

Angela said...

I vote for #23. Although I must say, I was wondering what was so funny about #2...I kept studying it over and over, until I read in the comments that someone was giving the finger! So hopefully she doesn't feel bad about missing that and making 40 copies...I missed it too! :)

Evonne said...

I'm really having a hard time deciding which one is the best..um, worst.

#16 it is

Ok, maybe I'm a bit biased!
