Social media challenge: Put the FUN back in dysFUNctional this Thanksgivukkah

Last night, while laying in bed with my 3-year-old, right after he said, "Mama? Sorry I kicked you in the neck"...


that is NOT my tiny hand resting on my eyeball

and after my mom angrily threw her teeth at me because I wanted to  avoid them "getting stolen" by putting them away for the night (no, they are not safe in her mouth)...


I thought, there are sure to be some excellent quotes/pictures/scenarios to be floating around this holiday season. Yes, we need to spend time with our families, but if you happen to overhear something and want to hide in the bathroom, I encourage you to post it to twitter with #dysFUNctionalholidays, on Facebook WITH THE SAME HASHTAG or email me at and I will happily share it along with your first name or anonymously. I can tell you right now,  I am going to need some laughs today...just look at those teeth.  And I am sure, if we actually do this, a lot of other people would get some much needed giggles and snorts too.

Happy Thanksgiving! Happy Hannukah! Happy Thanksgivukkahfrom my family (aka your neighborhood sociopaths) to yours.

Look closely at this photo...there is a lot going on.
