Is it normal...

...that my daughter is the best burper in the family?

...that my children were cheerfully singing a version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer in June that included this line: "Rudolph, with your nose so bright, I'll mount you on my wall tonight..."?

...that my oldest son ate 14 pancakes at breakfast...and he counted them?

...that the more I go to the gym, the more I want to bake?

...that I like Nacho Cheese Doritos in my tuna sandwich?

...that the comments of some blog readers provide clarity that I don't get from people standing right in front of me?

...that I don't miss working at all? (I do miss going to lunch and dressing up every day.)

...that I need the reality of leaving the house to keep me getting up at a certain time everyday, even though I know my day is so much better if I just get up?

...that I'd much rather read a book than watch television or a movie?

...that I can't play video games?

My Take...
...that my daughter is the best burper in the family?

{Family trait I hate to admit, I rattle windows when I let it ripp}

...that my children were cheerfully singing a version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer in June that included this line: "Rudolph, with your nose so bright, I'll mount you on my wall tonight..."?

{What is wrong with this, I don't even see where the question is}

...that my oldest son ate 14 pancakes at breakfast...and he counted them?

{is that all... Rookie He should have seen Uncle Matt in his prime!}

...that the more I go to the gym, the more I want to bake?
{Clear cause and effect here I would say}

...that I like Nacho Cheese Doritos in my tuna sandwich?

{Ummm, well maybe a little strange}

...that the comments of some blog readers provide clarity that I don't get from people standing right in front of me?

{Why thank you, yes I am taking credit for that one... even if I am your sister}

...that I don't miss working at all? (I do miss going to lunch and dressing up every day.)

{OH Heck Yeah! Me neither and frankly I don't even miss the lunches and the clothes. No pantyhose for me thank you!}

...that I need the reality of leaving the house to keep me getting up at a certain time everyday, even though I know my day is so much better if I just get up?

{Sadly this is very normal... me too, but I'm working on it}

...that I'd much rather read a book than watch television or a movie?

{Definitely the images in your head are always way more hot and exciting}


...that I can't play video games?

{I think that might come from your Mom's side, Video Games were a constant source of entertainment in our home. But I still think it qualifies as normal, just not for us.}

God I hope so, because if it's not, I am so screwed. LOL Sounds like a typical day around her. We are at Sonic today, the kids have the windows down because it's hot (see the blog I am going to post for full details) and the guy next to us is giving me the eye, because my 5 children are singing "it all comes back to Jesus"... No, we aren't weird, we just enjoy life to the very fullest.

Normal is relative...and I am still trying to figure it out.

I love this post. My baby daughter can out burp her Father and brother. I don't condone this but she does it and everyone laughs at her but me. Sheesh so much for manners.
Love all these you listed. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

I do not even know where to start! I do not think that "normal" has ever been on my radar. I love the fact that my daughter can belt it out with the best of them. She knows not to do it in public so that is what counts. I think the others are just who we are and I never worry about it. Is that normal?

Yes! Well, maybe not all of it but I definitely find myself fitting into many of those categories. I haven't had chips in a tuna sandwich in a long time but I used to love that. And I am pretty sure it's a good thing to not be good at video games because it saves hours of your life!

Who cares if your normal, odd is sooooo much more fun.

Our second daughter can out-burp any guy I've ever known and that's a fact. I'm not too sure about the doritos on a tuna sandwich but everything else seems okay to me. Video games are very addicting and I try to stay away from them because of that.

By the way, I've been wanting to tell you how beautiful your white orchid is in your header. I've got purple ones but the white are prettier.
