~SHOCKED~PROUD~and a wee bit scared.......

I am the proud and lucky mom of 3 amazing kids...and one wonderful daughter in law. And most days I feel blessed.....Some days....I feel just a tiny bit afraid. Today was one of those days.

I get a call from my middle daughter Lindsey, who lives in Texas. She has been visiting my blog for a couple of months now....and seems to enjoy it. But I NEVER expected in a million years that I would ever hear her say....."Mom I have a blog" .

After the shock wore off....I developed a small case of hives. Small being a relative term based on proportion to my body mass. Actually the hives would have covered most of Rhode Island. So with much trepidation I entered the URL and took my first peek at her brand spankin new blog. I encourage my children to develop their talents...really I do....but after watching the hilarious blog wars between Justine & Jill...I'm not sure I want to have all of my secrets revealed by my daughter. I kind of like only telling you guys the stuff I WANT you to know about me.

But alas those days might be over......if this artistic display is any indication....


So with GREAT fear and reluctance....I'd love for you all to hop over to Lindsey's blog....."At least my dog thinks I'm interesting" And tell her "HI" and "Welcome to blogland....now be nice to your mother". She would be thrilled to have the company.

And remember my dear daughter......Mommy knows where you live..........And hiding is NOT an option.

And on the next post I'll show you my other daughters new website.....

I totally understand the fear factor of it. That is too funny. I would write out an agreement right now and have you all sign it. There has to be boundaries. But then again, we might really enjoy all the stuff we will read. Hee hee.

Like real life People Magazine :)

Quirkyloon said...

I'm so grateful I don't have to worry about this....yet!

Eeek!

I can't wait to check out her blog!

Erin said...

It's like on Friends, when Monica and Chandler tell the whole world the awful secrets about each other. Yikes! Good luck, my friend!

Fragrant Liar said...

I was going along all oblivious and minding my own business and all, when suddenly I clicked on Nikki's blog and then . . . WHAM! I was informed my children could get their own blogs too, and then they'd tell all these secrets about me and speak of me in cranky terms and rag on my foibles and how horrid a mother I was and then the world would think . . . and I'd lose readers and friends and . . .

Okay, maybe not that bad, but if your daughters can do it, mine can. Damn! Please don't tell them, okay?

And now I will straighten myself up and go warn your daughter to be nice to you. ;)

Rue said...

God help me if Annie ever starts a blog.... yikes LOL

Welcome home!!

My SIL is the only other person in my family to have a blog, but my MIL actually comments regularly, and has said that she wants to start one, as has my dad.

My dad is probably the most conservative family member in both our families, and I always wonder if he dies a bit inside, reading my blog.

He also works in the IT department at BYU as one of the head IT guys, and his best friend is the guy who does the censoring of sites there. I keep waiting for the day when my blog is blocked at BYU.

Erin said...

I was just in, blowdrying my hair, and all of a sudden out loud I said, "Ross!" Duh. I meant Monica and Ross, not Monica and Chandler. Sheesh.

The Blue Ridge Gal said...

Always be nice to your family when you blog... it's an unwritten rule in my family.

roy/elisabeth dean said...

My daughter had a blog for a while too. I loved reading what was going on in her life (and she always said the sweetest things about us). I'm sure Lindsey will be complimentary...and funny as hell!
I'm heading to work now, but I will check it out when I get home!
Have a wonderful weekend Nikki~
♥,Lilly

Carolynn said...

I'm heading right over. Sounds like she's a chip off the ole block though...you may want to go buy yourself a pair of those glasses with the mustache attached.

Ginger said...

I know your kids are some of your biggest fans of your blog and since you are such a great mom, Lindsay will only have good things to tell about you...and if not, cut her out of the will. (just kidding).
I will hop right over to welcome her.

Midwest Mommy said...

I would be nervous too, lol! No one in my family knows about my blog. I think I might have a heart attack if one someone mentions this funny little website called "Mommy from the Midwest" lol!
Headed to see her now :-)

KC Mom said...

I was a little nervous when my middle daughter started her blog too, for that same reason. But so far, she's been kind. Could be that's cuz she still lives under my roof!!

French Fancy said...

I totally understand your feelings here, Nik. Mr FF has a blog but I'm not allowed to mention it or refer to it and he wants to be anonymous. If it was left to me I would tell the world who he was.

Anyway - I bet Lindsey's blog will be (almost) as fantastic as yours

Kris said...

Ha' another reason I don't share my blog with family. hehe

Going to go visit Lindsey and say hello. Maybe bride her to dish the dirt?? Money talks!! haha

Gram said...

hip hip hooray for another fun lighthearted loud on blog- fun silly and witty blog!

Happy To Be said...

Hey Girl I just went to Lindsey's to welcome her...Did you notice right off I went by her blog frist?? may she'll take over girl..She is funny Nikki...But just remember you know more about her than she does you lol!! Of course she could alway bribe her grandma for some dirt ha ha!! My youngest daughter reads my blog everyday..so I have to watch what I say about her ha ha!!Have a great weekend my friend...Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

onlymehere said...

I popped over and left her your message. I just hope she plays nice with you!! She's funny but I still think you're the queen of funny!!

imjacobsmom said...

Nikki, She's a Hoot! You can be proud! ~ Robyn

Renna said...

I've had people ask me if my kids or husband reads my blog. My answer? Nope, never, and I'm quite content for it to stay that way! ;-Þ

The Garden of Egan said...

So funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You must be so proud!

Kat said...

The only "bad" thing I did to my mom was post a picture of her in her 1988 high school reunion dress. It was 80's-tastic!

Yaya said...

Oooh! Cool! Can't wait to see it!

Kritta22 said...

I understand your fear....if any of my family started a blog, I'd be worried.

Not cuz I lie but cuz I don't say certain things for some reasons.

Especially my sister. If she got one, all the dirty laundry would come out, I'm sure.

Thank goodness, I had to bookmark my site and that's all see knows!

Tristan said...

LOL!!!!

Becky said...

Nope. This is not a possibility. This cannot. willnot ever happen to me.

Can it?

Oh shit.

Welcome Lindsey!

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

Now Nikki! We all know that anything she could possibly say bad about you would be a total fabrication! I'm off to see!!!!!

Tootsie said...

girl...I understand...I am terrified that my sister will get a blog....she is not afraid to kill me via embarassment!
on my way to plead your case....

Cherie said...

Really fun! I will check out her blog.
I understand your fear. My married daughter has started a blog also and you just never know what might pop up. She spend about 5 days at my house going through old pictures and laughing at a bunch of me with old hairstyles. I have no idea what she scanned and kept - Hhhmmm I am a little worried about what might show up!
Have a GREAT day!

Diane @ Four Paws and Co said...

Wow Nikki, she's off to a great start & I can hardly wait to hear her family stories. Hmmm, maybe she'll be sweet & post some pictures of mom!!! ☺♥☺ Diane

Swirl Girl said...

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery....blah, blah, blah.

Jared y Jessica Gale said...

Mother!!! What have you done now? 80% of the female population in our family have followed you and jessica to Blogland where none of you seem to return again. Lindsey was so young and not so innocent..... Whhhyyy!!!

Shelia said...

Hey dear Nikkiness! OH, the joy! I can't wait to pop in to check out your darling daughter's blog! Thanks for popping in to see me, sweet friend!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Shawn said...

Its always hard to cut the proverbial umbilical cord.

Good on your daughter! Have to check it out!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Great disguise. :) I won't even tell my daughter how to find my blog. I get enough yelling as it is. Some nut case is going to track me down ...HA!!
I think she still sees me the way I looked when she was four...and every single one of them threatens me within an inch of my life if I show their picture on here...so..you can plainly see why I don't let them know how to find me. :) I will hop right over and welcome this..sweet young thing in...disguise?
Mona

Not The Rockefellers said...

I think that is wonderful. At least now you will have an inkling as to what is going into your biography. :)

Tried to comment on Lindsey's blog to welcome her but I was unable to. Maybe it is sooo busy! I am now a follower, though!

Peace - Rene

Jared y Jessica Gale said...

Let the blog wars begin!! :D

Twice as Nice said...

Great!! Maybe she'll start a "What about Mom Wednesday...or a Talkin' trash Tuesday...I'll go over and give her a few ideas.HA

xinex said...

Your blog always make me smile, Nikki. You will be a family of bloggers, will visit her and I am sure it will be another entertaining one..Christine

wendy said...

So, how do I get on to Lindsey's blog --I want to hear all the smut on YOU.

Becky said...

Welcome to family blogging NikkiCrumpet! Both my daughters have a blog and I'm living through it! LOL

Actually they are the reason I started blogging and it has been terrific.

Lindsey's only going to tell us what she wants us to know as well!!! Now, that could be scary for you!

The Things We Carried said...

Too funny and very honest!

wendy said...

OK Nikki, am I just totally computer challenged (well, don't answer that) but every where I see Linday's name - it doesn't link me to her blog. so-----what's up. I was up until 2:30 a.m. so maybe my brain is fried.

JANE said...

She's really good, definitly from your gene pool!!
BTW, I learned to text from my 14yr old just a couple of months ago.

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

Awesome! Wait - did she actually put that stick figure thing on HER site? That would be too funny and I guess I'll find out since I'm going over there right now.

Shauna said...

Can't wait :)

Em said...

Thanks for giving me another reason to be happy that my children are still illiterate. Damn that kindergarten though - it's only a matter of time.

Hubs out of town next week so I'll be burning the midnight oil making up for a lot of lost blog time - she's on my list to hit!! E

Cynthia said...

This is always the challenge with family and blogs. It's probably a good thing. Most days anyway.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Well, if her blog is anything like her Mom's, I know I'll enjoy it, so I'll get right over there (I do hear your fear!). laurie

Cynthia said...

OMG this is so funny! Love your doctored pic of darling daughter and hope for you there are no Dearest Mommy posts. Don't you just love daughters, Cindy

Smilingsal said...

That would frighten me too, Nikki

I'm going to visit her now.

Beverly said...

I did just as you directed. Her blog should be a constant reminder to you of what a wonderful mother you are. ;-)

Gaston Studio said...

A chip off the old block, she is! My oldest daughter also has a blog but my youngest refuses (got it half right)!

Justine/Justiney/Tiney said...

OMG, think of the endless possibilities here! We could have mother/daughter blog wars, or Crumpet/Ozzie/Whatever her dog's name is wars. Ooh, I'm getting chill bumps just thinking about it!!!

Okay, I'm off to welcome Lindsay!

Justine :o )

Sassy said...

She has probably learned from the best! Both of my daughters have one too....thankfully I'm still mostly the one that tells everything....sadly they are the ones who are better behaved...I'm going to go visit her now... =0}

Anonymous said...

Nikki and Lindsey
Beware...............this old lady could always blog too and then both of you would be in serious trouble---------oh! what tales I could tell.
Grandma/Mommie

Raxx - A day in the life said...

The sibling wars of Justine and Jill are great, looking foward to mom-daughter war! Ok, kidding, I know she'll be as sweet and funny as you are, off to check her out!

Jill said...

I am on my way over there right now.! This is going to be fun! WOOOHOOOO!

jeanne said...

Hi Nikki, I am going over to Lindsey's blog if I can find her link.
I am enjoying this very much. You may have some competition here Nikki.
Best wishes to her and her blog.

Hugs...Jeanne

Melissa said...

Niiiiiiice Lindsey! I would be TERRIFIED if one of my sons decided to blog. But I think I am safe. Not one of them is remotely interested.

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

OK, I'm no longer confused - serves me right working backwards in your posts... ;)

I'm off to check out Lindsey's blog - I'm hoping that when Princess Nagger gets old enough to have her own blog it'll be passe... ;)

Belle (from Life of a...) said...

I just went over to visit. This is going to be LOTS of fun reading BOTH of you. I don't think Lorelai is ready to start a blog yet but I constantly worry about what might be on her facebook page.

Lisa Loo said...

I just went and checked her out. She is funny and I am really looking forwared to a little reality Nikki tv!

The Kooky Queen--Rachel said...

She is just as funny as her mama!!!

Queenie Jeannie said...

LOL! Thanks for the true belly laugh!!! Soooo needed that today!

Marrdy said...

I am so bummed I missed this on Saturday. Now we can all know your deep dark secrets. I'll tell her to do it in a nice way!

Jessica said...

Yeah~ I will go by & pay your daughter a visit. :)

Hugs to you!

The Main Ladybug said...

Gorgeous family! I'm off to visit your daughter's new blog.

BTW, I'm a new blogger too (or attempting to be, I should day).
