Liz Strauss at Successful Blog may have sent you here. For that, I am truly grateful. Thank you Liz.

Welcome newcomers. And welcome back my readers who faithfully stop by my place daily. Sit down, take a load off. Would you like a beverage? That's it, take your shoes off, put your tootsie's up, relax. Excuse me, you? Sorry. You, over there? You might want to put your shoes back on. Thanks. K.

First, a little introduction. My name is Mrs. Schmitty, I've been married to my best friend, Mr. Schmitty, since 1992. We have 3 children, W. (10), T. (5), and R. (4). We also have a one and a half year old Cavachon (Bichon Frise and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mix) dog named Ruby. We don't live an overly exciting life, but a normal, hectic, life that is truly ours. We have ups and downs. I try to find the humor in those ups and downs, because honestly, if I don't, I may just lose my mind!

Liz suggested that I highlight some of my favorite posts. I hope you enjoy what I've written over the last year and a half. If you do, please subscribe to my feed and come back again. I'd love to get to know you better. Thanks for dropping by and enjoy!

I'm going to start you off with a very funny post about Baginas, because that's just how we roll here. Right to the nitty-gritty. And if we are going to talk about a girls anatomy, well, we are an equal opportunity offender at this blog, so read THIS too.

If you need to find the FUNNY in a situation, or you just might blow your brains out, you'll love The Troublemaker's Timeline. Go ahead, laugh at my expense. It's not your kid. I'd laugh if it were you it happened to. While you are at it, Superballs and Bouncy Balls will explain my hatred of grocery stores.

Not only are my kids the source of my amusement, so is my hubby. He has a tendency to stick his foot in his mouth and Needs To Quit Talking Before It Gets Worse. But he just can't shut it long enough and His Mind Is Always In The Gutter! And if it's not one thing, it's your mother (in-law).

Believe it or not, I can also be serious. REALLY! I can. OH.BE.QUIET! I CAN!! Read about Kate's Foundation, and see for yourself. My son W. had a very rough start to his life, I wrote about it on his 9th Birthday and Hasn't He Been Through Enough. I even delve into my own messed up childhood, briefly, when I mention the Man Who Spawned Me.

You had to go and make me get all grave and grim, didn't you? Now I have to lighten the mood again. THIS is probably one of my favorite posts because as I admit, I'm and ass.

Oooh, thanks for this! I had no idea about that thing Liz Strauss is doing! I've popped over and added mine, JUST in the nick of time!

And I'll be back to catch up with those posts of yours later! Don't think I won't!

Maria said...

I have always thought that your best blog posts were about your kids...

They are a constant source of amusement, yes?

The Fritz Facts said...

I didn't find out about this until to late, but I am reading the blogs! Loving the intro!!

Jake said...

Hey Mrs. Schmitty! I wanted to let you know that your Kate's foundation link leads to the Needle in the Haystack page instead of this one:

Mrs. Schmitty said...

Thanks Jake! All fixed!

Zephra said...

Girl, if I didn't have your blog to read, I wouldn't laugh as much. I always get excited to see what crazy things you or your kids did... and your hubby, oh yeah, he lives in the gutter.

You are one of my favorite blogs.

Mrs. Schmitty said...

Jay: I hope you enjoy them! Thank you!

Maria: They sure are. Thanks for always supporting me!!

The Fritz Facts: Thanks!!

Zephra: You have just made my day. Just when I think my stuff is all fluff...Thank you so much for the positive feedback!!

i love the I'm and ass post. dude!

Izzy said...

I just wanted to thank you personally for your comment on my crazy post. For some reason Wordpress isn't sending me emails for comments so it's just easier for me to do it like this. Again, thank you.

Momo Fali said...

I think you're great! Our sons and their hearts are awfully similar and I'm with you about finding the humor. I have to laugh or else I'd cry!

Between your husband's comments and your daughter's bagina, I really enjoyed myself this evening!
