* laughter lives at our house …

Laughter LivesThis post is part of “Laughter Lives! Tuesday” on the Riggs Family Blog. Check our their blog to read everyone else’s “Laughter Lives!” posts.

A new fun thing to do … I have decided to participate in the “laughter lives Tuesday” blog party over at the Riggs Family blog. In order to do this, I have gone back & grabbed a post from a couple of weeks ago, most of you have already read it but if you get a minute jump on over to their blog (click the blog button to your right & it will take you there) & read some of the other really funny family stories they’ve posted. While you’re there, also check out their praying for Abby section & send up some prayers on her behalf.

For anyone who doesn’t know my family, Chrisi is my oldest daughter, she is 20. So here goes …


Welp, I made it safely home from Bible Study tonight and nobody asked me not to come back for another round next week. Yeah! Either it went fine or they are gluttons for punishment.

Before I went to church I had the following conversation with Chrisi … I love that child.

phone rings, I answer:

Chrisi: “mom?” (like she was surprised that I answered even though she dialed my #)

Me: “yes Chrisi?”

Chrisi: “I have a question & you have to promise not to laugh at me”

Me:”ok Chrisi, what is the question?” (knowing full well I am probably going to laugh)

Chrisi: “what are those lumps in cottage cheese?”


Chrisi:”there are lumps in the cottage cheese I bought today, what are they?”

Me:(pretending not to laugh) “well Chrisi those are curdles of milk, that’s what make’s cottage cheese be cottage cheese”

Chrisi:”does that mean spoiled milk? cause that sounds nasty”

Me:”well, not spoiled Chrisi, but pasturized and processed a different way so it doesn’t have bacteria that will make you sick”

Chrisi:”well I bought the strawberry mixed kind and I don’t like the lumps, how do I get them out of my cottage cheese”

Me:”Chrisi, you realize I cannot not share this on the blog”


just shake your head and smile … bless!
