Bad Bad Blogger

I can't believe I've been such a slack blogger the past week.  I have no good reason either.  I'm not sick, I'm not out of town, I haven't really even been watching the Olympics all that much.  I pretty much have prescribed myself to bedrest for the next 2 1/2 months.  The only comfortable postion right now is laying down on my side.  It helps relieve back pain, pelvic pressure, and lung compression.  It also is a lot more comfortable laying on my bed watching TV with my children next to me instead of on the couch with my children on top of me.  Anyway, just wanted to let you all know I'm fine.  Just lazy.

The other day as my kids and I were folding laundry at the end of the day, Bradley proposed that we play a game he read about in a Highlights magazine.  The goal is to name at least 10 body parts that only have three letters.  It's more difficult than it sounds.  I shamefully taught my kids two bad words in the process to try to get to #9 and #10 more quickly.  I warned them though that they were not appropriate words to say around their friends or at church or ever. But tonight at family scripture study we read:

Mosiah 12:5
"Yea, and I will cause that they shall have burdens lashed upon their backs; and they shall be driven before like a dumb ass."

So I guess it's ok to say one of the words in church in the correct context.  And if you are wondering what the other word is, it starts with a T and infants love them.

Can you name 10 appropriate body parts with only three letters?


  1. wow! your kids are so advanced now! too bad they dont have recess so they can teach their new words to everyone!! :)

  2. Eye, ear, toe, arm, leg, hip, lip, (arm) pit, jaw, rib, gum(s). Well, that's 11 unless pit doesn't count. Then its 10.
