  2. Lone Grey Squirrel says:

    Thanks! That was such a fun tour. Love the photos and the humor.

    I keep waking up at night. It’s either to damn hot or I have to use the bathroom, cause I drink tons of tea just before bed. Maybe nekkid with diaper is just the thing I need.

    Holy crap you make me laugh each and every time I visit! Your family is fantastic. Red teddy and a blue ball gown? Do I detect a trend with the niblet? Just teasing! The family’s adorable. And you are truly evil…I love it!

    As for the comments you left in the captain’s log, I think you need to get a picture of this pink tutu wearing fella in your neighbourhood. And a trip to Mexico? Shhhhhh….don’t tell anyone but that’s what I’m thinking. I’ve already got the tour picked out, now I just need the money.

    Darn. That title had me hoping we would see YOU in the red negligee. 😉

    Very cool photos.

    And by the way, I have passed along a blogging award to you. Richly deserved.

  6. Shari says:

    Unless you have nanosecond Internet connection or Superpowers, all the pictures you uploaded must have taken you a couple of hours!!

    Instead of cartoons, it was like reading a comic strip with pictures.

  7. Top cat says:

    Wow! just curious how long it took you to post all these pictures.lol
    Love all the pictures and your commentary is hilarious.
    I enjoyed this post a lot cause it gave me lots of smiles.:)

  8. charlotta-love says:

    lol. I loved every picture of your son in dresses. we have some of my brother like that too but I wouldn’t be alive if I dared post those. :o)

    Geez, I love it when life slows down a bit and you get to breath.
    btw- Ya got cute kids! Save those pics of Nibblet in dresses. You may need to blackmail him when he becomes an irritating teenager 🙂

  10. frannie says:

    those are wonderful shots to blackmail with…
    I mean with which to blackmail.

  11. urban-urchin says:

    i love the pic of the wee niblet in the sleeping beauty dress- that one will have to be brought out at his wedding.

    I loved the photo essay.

  12. Glamourpuss says:

    How much for the kids? Seriously. The Girl is clearly a natural at the old pole dance, and Wee Niblet is a drag act waiting to happen. Man, those pink marabou slippers? He looks a little bit comfy in those. I’m sure he will qualify for EDW – I haven’t included a cross-dresser yet…

    All power to you Jocelyn – dysfunction is just a princess gown away.

    You gotta love an all’s right with the world summer…

  14. Jill says:

    It looks like your family has a lot of fun. And that’s a very cool thing.

  15. mcewen says:

    What a good sharer you are.
    Best wishes

    I can’t help but notice that Woody and Buzz are in the background of many of Niblit’s pictures. Are they the sort of ‘behind the scene’ troublemakers that might lead a young man astray?

    I also know we’ve got the same pair lurking in our daughter’s bed, along with all the bears and bunnies and Hello Kitty. When I go home, I think I’m putting an end to that and exiling the Buzz-Woody duo to the play room where the Potatohead family can keep several of their interchangeable eyes on them.

  17. Theresa says:

    Adorable kids! Great costumes, but you’d better keep an eye on Wee Niblet there. What an uplifting post, life at its sweetest -perfect for the end of summer.

  18. heartinsanfrancisco says:

    I enjoyed this so much!! Your children are adorable, and Girl looks like you. It’s harder to tell about Niblet since he’s so boyish. I hope he finds his glass slipper, and that the dragon suit had a little give to it so he didn’t outgrow it too fast, although he probably won’t need it when he’s 16.

    Wonderful pictures, and your captions had me spewing coffee like Nessie coming up from the deep. Not that Loch Ness is filled with coffee. Well, you know.

    Did it ever occur to you that sometimes English is just plain swkward? But misplaced prepositions are something up with which we cannot put. Nohow. A grammarian’s life is a difficult one, wrought with sorrow. I could have been a popular song writer had it not been for my inability to deal in double negatives.

  19. lime says:


    the captions are too much. i am chortling and guffawing.

    i just want to ask. did you let wee niblet know that by throwing rocks into lake superior he is only raising the level? if it floods it may be his fault you know.

    also, in addition to saving for his college education are you saving for future therapy bills when he grows up and find you have posted pics of him in a slinky red negligee on the world wide web? imagine the psychic damge the two of us could inflict on our respctive progeny if we really put our heads together.

  20. My Reflecting Pool says:

    ahhhh, what a neat scrapbook to embarass your niblets with later!!!! What a fun and happy lot you appear in pictures to be!!! Did you say Little Debbie Zebra cakes? mmmmm.

  21. Mother of Invention says:

    That was the summer that was, eh? Nice to have it documented so well with pics. Today’s kids will have tons to look at when they are older. We only have a few from our whole childhoods.

  22. Diesel says:

    It seems that all lakes need more rocks. I love the sultry one.

  23. Wizened Wizard says:

    Thank heavens someone is working on the Lake Superior rock dearth. I’ve often layed awake nekkid in my diaper worrying about that…

  24. Voyager says:

    All summers should be such. Beautiful photos.

  25. That Chick Over There says:

    Christ on a bike. I laughed out loud at “Sultry”

    You SLAY me.

  26. TLP says:

    “But have you tried Nekkid Wid Diaper?
    Once you have, you’ll never go back”

    Wonderful. When I’m even older and have to be diapered, I’m going to steal this line.

    Great post! I enjoyed it so much!

  27. susan says:

    such adorable babies! And daddy is the perfect playmate

  28. Spider Girl says:

    This is SO sweet. And funny. 🙂

  29. Ann(ie) says:


    And you cracked me up as usual!!

  30. August says:

    So I’m four months late, but whatever.

    I never told you how much I love this post. Your Girl and Niblet and too much. They make me all mushy inside.

    And you, you get an A++ for being a wonderful mother.
