Barts & Bumper Stickers

Our little 9 year old day camper (you know the one that never stops eating) decided that while Insane Mama had her back turned to watch a soccer practice, and while I was walking to the bathroom, that it would be the right thing to do to rifle through both of our bags to look for food...cuz the cooler was empty. Dose she have no respect or self control?

Insane Mama and I were talking about our upcoming camping trip to the Sequoias (with no kids) and how there is nothing but trees and big Black Bears. Then we joked about having a little pot while we were up there. My instantaneous response…no….what I blurted out was, “I would much rather see my kids than get high with bears.” We thought that might make for a funny bumper sticker.

Other bumper sticker thoughts:
There is nothing sexier than an Insane Mama
Sex is best with a Tent Camper
My Tent’s pole is bigger than your tent’s pole
Forget…check into a nut house

11 year old Megan…on the car ride home today said, “Excuse me…I just barted." Not knowing, at that point what the hell she was talking about…we just shrugged and smiled. I’ll have you know that a Bart is when your burp smells like a fart.

And to top it all off…9 year old Christie, who had to pee on the way home, ran inside and said, “You’ll all have to excuse me…I’ll be in the bathroom…for a long minute.”

I think I have had one martini too many because I thought you said "I would much rather see my kids get high with bears" and I thought, yes, that would be hilarious!

Creativity runs in the family, I see. Bart is a new word for me, I must admit. I like it.

I love new words.

I'd rather seem my kids than get high with bears too. hehe

I thought of you yesterday.

Our five year old said our seven year old dressed his G.I. Joe like a "Butt Ass" and so he tattled on her.

Turns out she actually meant to say "Bad Ass" and all was forgiven.

Bumper sticker for your list: Everyone has an inner Tent Camper.
