My ass has made the big time

It's March, and you know what that means???

Why, yes, it's time for me to take a walk down memory lane, specifically to take a stroll down Colonoscopy Boulevard.

And in honor of National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, I have the pleasure of seeing my post published on the front page of BlogHer! Good thing I'm not shy about sharing!

Please stop by, and if you have a parent or spouse who has been putting off getting a colonoscopy, send 'em over there and hopefully I'll be able to convince them to get it done now.

Get your colonoscopy in March and start spring with a clean-as-a-whistle colon!

(I just don't understand why I'm not writing slogans for a living).


In other news, my son is, well, odd.

Want proof? Lately he has been sleeping with a new lovey; two, to be specific.

His loveys are oval and brown and fit nicely into his hands as he takes the trip to slumberland. They smell like dirt.


Yes, he has been sleeping with two russet potatoes. One is Ron, the other is Roy. Don't ask me which is which.

As odd as this is, it just can't be the weirdest lovey ever, so please leave me a comment and tell me: What is the strangest thing your child has adopted as a nighttime lovey?

If there wasn't a photo of D holding a pair of taters, I just might think you were talking about his private parts.

(rim shot)

Great job spreading the news with your butt. This week I've already shamed more than one person about their avoidance of colonoscopies.

OMG, these are the best loveys ever. Sorry can't beat that mostly for poor memory. Enjoy his uniqueness!

I'm so proud of your ass. :)

You know about Benjamin's marshmallow snowmen, right? He doesn't sleep with them...but they're going on 4 years of ownership now & quite honestly, I'm wondering what the HELL marshmallow is really made of?

Potatoes! Ha! That's one I've never heard of. My daughter used to sleep with river rocks from our yard. She also had some that were her "hamsters", and her "babies". My son (2) went to bed with a golf club cover the other night. He had put his arm up in it, wearing the rest as a sleeve. When I went to get him the next morning he was still wearing it. But that's still no potato.

My son takes cedar blocks to bed. You know, the kind that make your drawers smell fresh? And occasionally, he chooses a sparkly purple comb from Chuck E Cheese that's missing a few teeth. Nothing from the vegetable/root category yet though ...

Our kids are pretty boring - they just take torn, old, smelly blankets to bed. Although, when I get around to cleaning bed sheets, there are often odd discoveries under a blanket or two, but nothing that could one day sprout.

I love that. Do you replace them when he isn't looking?

Um when Morgan was two she carried around a toothbrush for three weeks. Slept with it and everything. Odd is good. :)

A few weeks ago at Knit Night, one of the other moms said her daughter carried a potato around for MONTHS calling it her baby. She dressed it up and wrapped it in a blanket and everything. And then one day, she brought it with her on a playdate. And the dog took a giant bite out of it.

Hysteria ensued.

So you are not alone. I mean, it's still weird and everything....

Congratulations to your ass.

He's a riot. And my kid slept with a rock for awhile. So yeah, I have been there.

Thank you for sharing that enlightening and informational piece. Fasting is much of a challenge for me since I only take two meals a day, namely breakfast and dinner and so doing without the two for a day should be alright. The challenge is having something up the ass. Since we'll be sedated most time, then it shouldn't be much of a challenge too.

And it is interesting about your son's lovey. So far I have observed only stuff toys for my niece and nephews. :)

I love that boy. Andrew has a tendency to fall asleep with whatever he's playing with that day, last night mardi gras beads (where is his mother!!). Other nights play coins, glow sticks, really anything toxic or chokeable! So potatoes seem nice, round and safe to me ;) of course the care bears are still hanging out after 5 years too...
