Chicks Who Blog...

That time is upon us again... the Blog Party. The best kind of party... lots of company and you don't even need to vacuum first! AND, nobody cares if you're wearing lounge pants and there's legos on the stairs.


I'm supposed to be posting some sort of introduction, here.


I'm 41. Married. Three children (20, 18 & 20 mos). Actually yes, that is on purpose, thanks for asking. We have kind of a wacky life... typically suburban with a side of ludicrous. I'm used to having bizarre things happen on a regular basis and we just roll with it.
The GerbChildren


On the other hand, I don't exactly fit the Suburban Mommy Mold... not in my neighborhood at least. I'm a Game Geek of the first water and would rather watch action or martial arts movies than classically defined chick films.

On the other hand, I know all the words to Red Grammer's Down the Do Re Mi and I can make my own Play Doh. And I think rolling around the floor with 20 month old Jacob is the best way to spend an afternoon.

We have no cat, we have no dog, but I have some of the most spoiled gerbils known to man. Or woman, for that matter. I love me some rodents! My two current boys are Raisincranz and Guldens-stern. ( They always have food puns, and we've had such names as Indiana Scones, Elvis Parsley and Poi George.)
The rodents


And on to the party. (Sorry guys, its a Chick Thing although you might still find some cool new blogs to read through the link up top.) Ladies, feel welcome to click the link and join the party. It'll be as fun as we make it!

jennyonthespot said...

Woohoo! Party! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to let me know you did!

Hey - I was 19 when my lil bro was born. My sis was 16. I'm totally familiar with that! He is 16 now, and a great uncle to my kids!

Alexandra said...

I come here from the Party! I've read a few of your Blog entries.Super funny! Gotta add you to my Blogroll! Keep Partying!

Alexandra said...

Quite Honestly,there's nothing positive about Oklahoma. Except all the Roadkill,which makes for a great game of Roadkill Bingo! OK.I made this game up but I do actually play it in the car with my 3 year old.

Gerbil said...

Alexandra, now I DID spit soda everywhere because um... yes I have played that game with my sisters on trips to my grandmother's.

*SMOOCH*

Glad you are blogging again! :)

Mommy Brain said...

I'm so glad you visited my blog because your tip for using twinkies and cola to get at the uber-mommies still has me laughing. I MUST remember this advice if only to cheer other non-uber-mommies up.

And I completely agree the virtual parties are the best. It's not like you're going to sit in cheerio crumbs on my blog post. I hope. After all, those cheerios have a knack for showing up everywhere...

Unusually Unusual Mom said...

Hey Gerbil! Fantastic Party going on over here! Thanks for stopping by mine!

And FYI - we originally thought the leash was a bad thing until my son got old enough to walk. We call him our 'runner' - he totally has no impulse control, thus the leash! I figure as long as I don't tell him to heel while he's wearing it we're good!

Becky said...

Since you stopped by my place I wanted to return the favor and visit you! I thank you for that! Party Hard girl!

Linda said...

For some raison, Raisoncranz slays me. You are a witty gal. I enjoy reading other bloggers who are in their 40s, although you barely qualify. Thanks for stopping by 2nd Cup, come back some time.

Fireball said...

i love those kind of parties where you dont have to tidy up too! and we hve a lounge dedicated to legos and thomas trains at the moment - so i so relate! so i love the blog title - is there a story to go with that??? have fun partying!

Gerbil said...

fireball: It refers to a Monty Python skit. When I was a kid, my friends were all watching 8 is Enough & other such shows... me? I was watching Benny Hill and Monty Python's Flying Circus. I think it goes a long way in explaining my demented outlook on life.

Alison said...

Enjoyed reading your blog!

Shan said...
