    1. As long as she knows what an adjective is, I don't care what the heck word she uses :)

  5. We love mad libs around here, although butts and farts feature prominently.

  6. I love how this started out perfectly logically and then quickly took a turn for the nonsensical after the first sentence!

  7. Love this! IT reminds me of the time I had my daughter write a note to a Nursing Home for "handwriting" that day. It read, "Dear Sad and Lonely Folks, I hope you have a happy death! Love, CC" You kids sound super fun!

  9. I really love "camel-infested," what a great imagination! I remember when my kids were crazy for Mad Libs, they would have done the same thing with an assignment. I was a terrible mother and taught my son the joys of using variations of "poop" ("poopy," "pooped," poop-colored") for all the words. It was worth it for how hard he laughed, and I guess he got it out of his system because he never tried it again.

    1. I remember doing mad libs as a kid and being absolutely breathless with laughter when one said "massaged his latrine". Clearly, however, I did not get it out of my system, considering how often I use the word "turd" in everyday conversation... ;)
