On a good day, parenting will test the integrity of your character. On a bad day, parenting will test your will to live. Parenting children with trauma histories will cause you to test the integrity of everything and everyone you thought you knew, for the rest of your life.

Wacky Words Wednesdays

OK, so Christine has her magic-milk pictures and her sexperiment and Essie has her too-true tuesdays so I thought

becasue our RADishes have all kinds of strange, silly, insane, absurd, irritating, nauseating and down right laugh-your-butt-off things they say, that they absolutely need to be put on the page!

So pass it along!
Wacky Words Wednesdays
Rules: in 300 words or less, paraphrase any back history needed to understand the context of the conversation with your RADish and then make us laugh with the crazy, insane, obnoxious, weird or wild things your RADish has said

The First Wacky Words Wednesday Post
We like to play car word games to prevent outbursts while driving. On our recent TL with Sissy, we were driving to the park so we asked the question, "Can anyone guess how many McDonald's there are in the world?" because the day before, The Dad and I had watched a documentary about it. Aspie Boy guesses, "22,000?" Wonder Girl says, "100!" and then it was Sissy's turn.


"Come on, Sissy, guess, it's just a game."

*more grunting followed by a whiny, "I don't know"

"Whatever, don't play our game, we don't care."


"Oh? you have a guess?"


"well, how many McDonald's do you think there are in the world?"

"65 billion."


The Dad and I lost it, we couldn't keep a lid on our hysteria. We laughed so hard The Dad almost had to pull over. Sissy groaned and Aspie Boy begged, "well, who wins?"

The Dad and I composed ourselves and said, "you're closest Aspie Boy, there are 31,000" at which point Sissy lets out a huge complaining groan of exasperation.

65 billion?!? i don't think McDonald's makes that much money a year! LOL I know she said it just to tick us off. It didn't work.

OK, your turn!

Whenever my daughter (placed with us at age 11, now 14) was working up to or down from a meltdown, she would often yell out, "YOU'RE CRUEL AND UNUSUAL!" I'm no sure she ever figured out why that made us laugh.
