I have missed this

By Mir
February 26, 2013

Offered without further comment, other than to say this is but her most recent observation on the oft-amusing experience of reconnecting with all the kids she’s known for years, some of whom have… changed… in her absence:


  1. Amy

    Oh just tell her that with the obesity rates in the south, his boobies will show up soon enough. :-).

    Much love to all of y’all!

  2. Randi

    Puberty is a BAD WORD in my house! My 12 year old sings “puberty, puberty, mom hates puberty” around the house just to make steam come out of my ears!

  3. Summer

    No one else needs to comment. Amy wins.

  4. Aimee

    When it comes to puberty, boys get off easy. Um, wait. Boys have it easier than girls. Yes, that’s what I meant to say. ;)

  5. Mir

    People, I do believe Amy’s winning of the Internet was just overridden by Aimee’s winning of the Internet….

  6. Lisa

    Oh my! Amy and Aimee!!! Too funny but so true!

  7. Little Bird

    This comment thread made my day, I love a good giggle in the morning.

  8. deva

    I am dying laughing here! Mir, I am so glad that Chickadee has returned home!

  9. Jamie

    LOL @ Amy and Aimee!!!

  10. Lauren

    This has just caused the unpleasant return of the memory of the fact that I dated the only boy in my 8th grade class with a full beard and mustache. At 13. This also likely explains why I’m still so beard and mustache averse now. IT ALL MAKES SENSE.

  11. Leah

    My daughter (11) is mortified if I talk about periods. So me being the awesome mom I am say often, “it’s not like we are talking about periods or something”. Just the look on her face is priceless. I always strive to win that mother of the year award.

  12. Megan


    Also? Puberty sucks. It just does – for all concerned.

  13. s

    The puberty movie they show at school has a song they thread through the whole thing “just around the corner” so I torture my kids by using that phrase as often as possible.

  14. Tracy B

    I’m with Chickadee on this one….I didn’t understand then, either! Maybe still have my questions……maybe.

  15. bonuela

    i missed yesterday’s post. that makes ONE missed post in the last five years and chickadee comes home?!?!?!? congrats! i will skip tomorrow’s too in case you want to win the lottery or find out licorice is really made of gold or something.

  16. Katie in MA

    I think the only comediennes I love more than your readers are you and that Chickie girl. ;-) Please let her know how much she has been missed!!!

  17. Arnebya

    It’s the Amy and Aimee show! And boy am I enjoying them closing for Mir and Chickie’s hilarity.

  18. addy

    fun, laughter and general snarkiness – yup Chickie is home!!!!

  19. Chuck

    My beard is OK, but my moustache is very thin. Fortunately I look better clean shaven. I do wonder what happened to all the kids who could grow a full beard by the age of 14 – do they have to shave twice a day now or what? Ah well.

  20. Celeste

    Hahahaha S! My kids’ school has that same movie. And I do the same thing, cuz I delight in torturing them.
