I’m a Simpson, you’re a Simpson…

Wouldn’t you like to be a Simpson too?

Our family as the Simpsons

I was browsing mommy blogs over on The Mom Blogs and found this link to Simpsonize Me over at Flakes of Bran (where she has a lovely Simpsonized version of her own family) . The temptation was too great. I had to play myself. 🙂

After I created each of us (well, Jody did his own), I went into Photoshop and played a bit more, assembling us together for a family pic and adding a few personal touches. What do ya think? 🙂

Well, what are you waiting for? You know you want to go Simpsonize yourself too! 😉

A consumer is born


A conversation between Jody AKA Daddy and Ava (3) as they were out in the car running errands on Sunday.

Ava: “I don’t want to go home. I want to go to Walmart.”

Daddy: “We don’t really go to Walmart, we go to Target.”

Ava: “We shouldn’t go to Target. That’s what the girl said.”

Daddy: “The girl? Where at?”

Ava: “The girl and the boy who was making pictures.”

Daddy: “Why do you want to go to Walmart?”

Ava: “I want to buy everything that I want.”

Apparently Walmart is recruiting them young these days.

The funny this is, we really don’t go to Walmart, so I’m not sure where she got this idea, though Jody suspects she overheard someone talking about Walmart while we were at the mandala creation on Saturday. Despite that fact that we don’t do Walmart, Jody decided to take her anyway to give me some extra time without them in the house Sunday morning.

After hanging out at the “Supercenter” for a little while, they headed to the parking lot. As they were walking out, Ava said she wanted to go back in. Jody asked her why and she replied, “I want to buy flowers for mommy.” Awww. Walmart or not – who can argue with that? 😉

And don’t you just love that picture? God bless the Internet.
