Tomisms: Funny things my son posts on Facebook #1

So, as  a mom of older kids, I don’t get to share adorable photos of them blowing spit bubbles and running around with chubby cheeks and pigtails. I do however have two amazing and funny human beings hanging around that I’m lucky enough to call my children — one in middle school and one who just finished his first year of college and is currently in his room screaming into his Xbox headset — o.o

Soooo… in lieu of cute photos, here is a new series called –

Funny Crap my son posts on Faceboook, or just simply put — Tomisms.


“I’m the smartest of my people, because I know, that I know nothing at all.”


“Don’t blow giant bubbles with gum if you have a beard..”

(After I saw this post, I immediately went in search of son to see if he did in fact have gum in his beard. Unfortunately, I was too late for the priceless photo opp I’m sure that would have happened had I been a few minutes quicker!)

“So I almost worked out today.. But I heard a cry for help and when I got to the location of pleading, Ice cream was sad, so I ate it.”


“Here’s a list of 10 things I do not like just cuz!”

2) Deep water
3) Olives
4) charcoal
5) cotton balls

“Happy mom day mom, hope you enjoy doing mom things. Like wacking chickens with giant flowers on LOTRO or other stuff like that.”


Yep, I asked my son for his permission to share the random things he posts to Facebook, and I stole this photo from him, too.
