The weekends are always a great time to enjoy and what better way than to read funny things that others write. Join the blog hop right after my top five laughs.

Now for my top five laughs:

5. Hayley is really big into playing games with me lately and she always manages to win. Yesterday we were playing a game called Zingo and Hayley giggles at me and says, “Mommy, are you ever going to win?” I feel like a reject losing constantly against my three year old.

4. Zane is now sleeping 12 hours a night and two 2-hour naps during the day. When I go get him in the morning he looks at me and constantly yawns. Takes him about 10 minutes before he stops yawning. You would think the little guy never sleeps.

3. Yesterday I was putting one of her million Barbies away and I accidentally dropped it. She started hysterical crying. I asked her what was wrong and she said, “Mommy, you hurt Barbie. Barbie is so sad that you hurt her.” Kids!

2. Hayley is obsessed with the smurfs. Today my mother brought her a smurf when she came up to visit and she responded, “This is the best Papa Smurf ever. I will let him sleep next to me all the time and make sure he is happy.”

1. MY FAVORITE OF THE WEEK: I was showering this morning and Hayley yells to me from the shower, “Mommy, come her quickly: Zane is crawling.” I instantly got out of the shower and realized we officially have a crawler. He looks so cute. He sticks his butt up and sways back and forth to get momentum before he moves. Time to baby proof again!

    Love #5, that's so funny for both reasons. She always wins and you feel like a reject. I don't like losing all the time easier, I'm glad that I'm not the only one. I love that Hayley announced Zane's newest trick. Hayls sayings are just like Claire's where do they come up with these things?!

  2. Naked Mommy says

    I can relate to #s 2 & 3. My daughter is obsessed with owies lately. She'll show me the tiniest scrape on her knee or tell me that Elmo has a broken arm. I of course pretend to be all concerned but inside I'm like why are you such a hypochondriac? ; )

    Congrats on your little crawler!!

    Oh I'm so jealous of Zane's 2 two hour naps! I'm lucky if Torin sleeps for 30 minutes at a time. Ugh!

  4. CacheyMama says

    Aww, how sweet that Hayley called for you! Yay, Zane! That's awesome he's a great sleeper!
    I feel like that when I do puzzles with my friend's children. They are way faster at finding matching pieces sometimes! Lol
    So glad you had a relaxing spa day! You deserve it!
    Have fun this weekend with your family!

  6. Nancy says

  8. OverMom says

    Ah CRAWLER! YAY. Hayls is soooo funny and cute! I wish my kids would sleep better, I am jealous!

  9. Alicia says

    Of course he chose to start crawling while you were trying to take a shower. Typical kid ;) Yay for crawling!

  10. Ixy says

    I remember how hard I thought it was when I could just put my daughter down, and she would just lie there like a paperweight. Ha! Those days are gone…

  11. Janet K says

    I had to link up a post from earlier this week because although it was funny, the comments get even funnier!! Thanks for the link up!!
