Five Random Facts

Mama’s Losin’ It

My family seems rather ordinary on the outside. Or maybe not, depending on your definition of ordinary.  So just for fun on this chilly January day, I offer five random facts about my family. They might help you get to know us a bit better.

You might decide we’re the weird family down the block.


You might decide we have more in common than you originally thought.

ONE  – The symbol of happiness and family life is a rubber chicken.

TWO – We have a pet turtle named Yogurt. And Thing One is striving for us to have a pet tiger named Pancake. Our dog, surprisingly, is not named after food.

THREE – One of us does not like fruit. Another does not like seafood. And the third hates pasta.

FOUR – Every year for Christmas, we watch Trading Places — with Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd. We never watch The Polar Express or It’s a Wonderful Life.

FIVE – Our favorite television show is M*A*S*H.  I seriously consider sharing that show with my kids as part of my legacy as a parent.

What’s a random and little known fact about your family? Do share in the comments. I’d love to hear them!
