The cynical crayon

I'm Cynical,mostly facetious,always bespectacled & hilarious. This where I chronicle the trials and tribulations of life as a stay at home mom.

OK lets not oversell, my friends think that I'm funny; Is that like having your mom say you're pretty?

Note the pageantry of the animals. Their noble plastic stance on the corduroy plain. Nestled deep in the heart of suburbia, they patiently await the return of their master…

When cleaning up the toys, I came across my sons animals lined up in a row. The above text is my inner monologue when I stopped to look at them. Also please note that this needs to be read in David Attenborough’s voice to get the full effect.
