Feeding the blog

Last week while driving in the car, Lindsay says to me: 
Did you know Neil Armstrong died?
Me: yes.
her: That is so sad.

Me: Yes, but honey, he was 82 years old...he lived a long and full life.
Her {with a confused face} He was THAT old? I had no idea....

Me: {Lightbulb over my head} Um, you might be thinking of Lance Armstrong; the bicyclist.
Her: Oh.....ummmmm.....yeah.

Me:  You just love to give me good blog fodder don't you?
Her: Yep, I am food for your blog with my stupidity.

Of course, this is not stupidity...this is blond-itity...there is a difference.



  1. I needed that smile this morning. Thanks! :-)

  2. Oh how funny! What a lovely photo, too! You guys enjoy the day.

  3. hahaha! too funny....but I "get" the blonditity.... ;op


    hello gorgeous xxx

  4. She's young... you have to wonder if this generation even knows who was the first to walk on the moon. Waaay before their times. :-)

  5. It is crazy, growing up in the tech era how much these kiddos actually missed out on learning. I have had to explain these past couple of years as people passed on...

  6. Blond-itity makes life interesting. I really like your photo.

  7. LOL I have blond-itity too. Especially after a glass of wine:)

  8. That is not stupid - - - Lance is fortunate to be alive after the bad cancer he had. And there are those of us old enough to remember his walk on the moon - - - it happened the month after I graduated high school!!!! So tell your daughters in forty years - - plus three, they will be my age! They should start blogging now so they will have documentation to help them remember it all.

  9. Oh my goodness, she's too cute!

  10. She's not the first to make the mistake. The BBC reported the death of astronaut NEIL YOUNG!

  11. it....there is another blond here- I knew who Neil Armmstrong is...but who is Lance Armstrong.....Bwhahahaha- xo Diana

  12. Look at you and your mad photography skillz!

  13. I like that--blond-itity. I may have to steal that! Usually I just give my best dumbfounded look and say, "I'm a blonde, what did you expect?"

  14. I love it too!! She is gawjus! Just like her mama!

  15. she is too cute :)
    and i love the photo!!!!

  16. She's so cute!

    Just like her Momma.

    I don't think it's Blond-itity though.

    I think it's Generational-itity


    Strange look words there.

    Happy Tuesday anyway.

  17. Too funny...well, at least she'll be giving you good blog fodder for years to come! :) Cute pic, btw. : )

  18. I feel her pain as I too have done that - often. Confusion Rules!

  19. She is not stupid, she is adorable (& compassionate). I sometimes feel the same way about some of the famous people of my parents' generation - who???

  20. Oh how cute.... Typical teen and adult conversation. Sometimes I wish we adults had the zest and love for life and trustworthiness that teens have. Not a worry in the world; They don't know what is going on in this ole world... Wouldn't that be neat---not to know?????? Don't know why this post reminded me of this ---but I love the innocence of teens.

    You have two fabulous daughters..
