Freakin' Friday

In the grand tradition of mom's and daughters mysteriously trading bodies, my daughter and I have decided to trade blogs today!  Though I would not mind trading bodies with her either. Oh to be 18 again...  I hope this  Freakin' Friday does not send my red-head-co-ed along the same path as Lindsay-I-never-met-a-drink-or-scandal-I-did-not-like-Lohan.  So you will find ME over here at Makenzie, No "C".  And without further adieu I will introduce my darling first born, the original drama queen, never met a chocolate she did not like (where does she get that from I wonder?) Please show her some bloggy love because I think she is pretty awesome...



Linda is not here. This is Makenzie, her other personality. (Jk, I've recently watched Sybill for the first time, so excuse me for my creepiness.) This is Linda's eldest baby girl, Makenzie, aka Co-Ed. Apparently Co-Ed was given to me because I go to a Co-Ed school... ? Not really sure why that was a big deal. Probably because the fact I can walk down the hall and and hang out in my guy friend's dorm room until 2 in the morning is blasphemous. I'm happy with Co-Ed. Atleast it wasn't Heathen Woman or Spawn of Satan. That would make me sad.

So as most of you know (I would only assume, she does update most of my life on this blog) I am home from college for the month of May. I am going BACK for more school in June. Jealous? I would be. Psh, who wants to swim and... be with friends and.... dumb things like that. Considering I have to gain residency in the state I go to school in (U-taaaah, said in Frat boy accent) I might as well be doing something productive like getting an education while I am up there! But for now I am cleaning up dog poop, making meals (heating up taquitos), and watching re-runs of Khloe and Kourtney take Miami. Oh the joys of being home.

So because I am so thoughtful I decided to do a little diddy about how much I love my mom. Okay, it was her idea. I just remembered 2 seconds ago it was Mothers Day on Sunday. But let me list for you 18 reasons (1 for every year she's been my mom, in no particular order) of why I love my mom.

1. I love her because she laughs at the same things I do.
2. I love her because she owns and updates a blog... how many kids can say that??
3. I love her because she's a Gleek!
4. I love her because she lovingly chastises me when I need it.
5. I love her because she can use the word "totes" properly in a sentence.
6. I love her because I can happily borrow the cute clothes in her closet. Not a lot of kids can say that either.
7. I love her because she always answered the phone or at least called me back whenever I needed her.
8. I love her because she will still buy me things "just because".
9. I love her because she knows that crack is wack.
10. I love her because she has not chosen to sell any of us to foreign countries... yet.
11. I love her because she was born to awesome parents who took me to Hawaii with a friend last year!
12. I love her because she tells me I am pretty even if I don't feel like it.
13. I love her because she gave me her baby blues.
14. I love her because she's friends with my friends... she's just cool and hip like that!
15. I love her because she has a full-time job and does not get paid for it.
16. I love her because she is so excited for me to get married and have grandbabies... this is not happening anytime soon.
17. I love her because she does not take herself too seriously and laughs at herself.
18. I love her because she thinks I'm cool enough to write on her blog, when she is much wittier and better writer than I!

I remember one time one of the children asked my mom, "Why isn't there a Kids Day?" to which she didn't miss a beat and said: "Because every day is Kids Day". Well played, mom, well played.

I love you mom! Happy National Disabili- I mean Mothers Day! :)

Hey Makenzie...Great blog! You're funny like your mama and probably just as pretty. Hope you have a great summer! :) Oh, and Happy Mother's Day Linda!

Ashley said...

I love my dad for reason #11 also! We have awesome parents and grandparents. Happy mothers day to an awesome Aunt!!! Love you Linda!

Cheeseboy said...

I think your mom is just as luck to have you as you are to have your mom.

Never underestimate a Gleek.

Kristina P. said...

YOu guys are both hilarious and awesome. Seems like you actually like each other. :)

Lourie said...

You are so much like your mom. And my mom would say the exact same thing to me when I asked why there wasn't a "kids day." I now get to say it to my kids. ;)

Have a great weekend/month with your family.

Saimi said...

Love your list Makenzie! I never had daughters, but if did I hope I would have been as lucky as your mom!!

Tom and Karen Mortensen said...

Very nice blog today. You are lucky to have each other.

Jocelyn Christensen said...

Ha! Great list, but I am chuckling right now because "baby blues" must mean something very different BEFORE you've actually had a baby! :) Happy Mother's Day to you both!

AB said...

I love your mom for reason #1, too. But don't doubt yourself...you've inherited her knack for wit.

Happy Mother's Day!

Much More Than Mommy said...

Brilliant idea and fantastic post!!

Stephanie Bishop said...

Very clever and I feel I know you both so much better

Lisa said...

Yay for the apple not falling far from the tree. Well done, thou good and faithful daughter. I'm grooming a son to marry you. Just sayin'.

Marian said...

I thought one Erma Bombeck in the family would be good, two is exceptional! I am laughing my way through both your blogs. Keep up the good jibe, and happy mom's day to a great daughter in-law. Love you. Mom V

Krista said...

MaKenzie - don't overlook Lisa's comment about her son. He is cute. Your list was awesome - but I just have one question. Please fill me in on the cool lingo. What's a Gleek? In my house it's where my son can force saliva from underneath his tongue to shoot about five feet across the room. I can't see you calling you mom that. Thanks!

Marian said...

Oh, and for sure, an equally great granddaughter. You know I love and admire you. Grammy

Queenie Jeannie said...

Tiffany said...

Super sweet, you are one lucky lady to have such a great mom.

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

The relation is easy to spot.

L.O.V.E. it!!

Leanne said...

What a fantastic post, ladies!! Mackenzie, you got one great Mom there - but you already knew that. And Mom, you definitely did it right with this one! Love this "switch" ladies!

2busy said...

This is a fun post. I should have thought of doing that. I'd love to hear what my kids would come up with...

foxy said...

What a fun idea for you two to change blogs for the day. Love it!

I also happen to love the word "totes" - but really like to say "totes magotes" the best.

And nothing is cooler than a Gleek!
