Parents with a sense of humor have united the last couple weeks in a way that brings a tear to my eye. We are FUNNY. We don’t take this shit too seriously. We are not afraid to pose elves INAPPROPRIATELY! We will not let the guilt of not moving our elves every day into whimsical, time-sucking, mess-making poses paralyze our spirit.

We are the Inappropriate Elf movement, the 99% of parenthood, if you will.

We have come together to make the holidays HILARIOUS.

Damn, I am proud to be a part of this, and already plotting how to make next year even more epic. So buy those elves on clearance, bitches, because it is ON in 2012.

Voting ends tonight at 11:59 pm CST. If you haven’t yet, go here and click “like” to vote for your favorite. After that, the top 3 automatically make it into the top 10. Then I’ll choose the other 7 and send the top 10 onto our KICK ASS panel of judges.

The Bloggess– Uhm, yes, you are not hallucinating. It’s not too late to come up with entries that incorporate dead animals and giant metal chickens!

The Redneck Mommy– Because this contest is officially the coolest thing to ever happen to me in the blogging world, and not only did The Bloggess say yes, but so did The Redneck Mommy… I. Die.

How To Be A Dad– You know, crazy famous, hilarious dads? You and 71,800 something others may be familiar with them on the Twitter.

The Next Martha– Twitter superstar, Halloween goddess, Target Champ, one of the funniest people I’ve ever built something with.

Harpers Happenings- One of my internet besties, Mandy, who also happens to be so funny she makes me pee my pants. She also produces THE. CUTEST. spawn. I’ve urged her to contact Mattel about licensing a Harper doll.CHAPSTICK! (N0 really, you have to watch that.)

Parenting- Illustrated With Crappy Pictures– She draws pictures of my life. I think she watches me. I forgive her because she is a comedic genius.

  • "My first time seeing Eliza which was 4 long hours after her birth. @presciutti captured the moment and the tear in my eye perfectly. When I told you how amazing the staff was at Unity hospital, I meant it. I was in the bed waiting to be taken down to see Eliza, Nick had left the room for a few, and I was struggling to brush my hair because I was so weak all over from the birth. A staff member named Tomashia walked in the room, introduced herself, and saw me struggling. She sweetly offered to brush it for me. I told her I just wanted to look nice for Eliza the first time she saw my face. 🌹🙂" 📷: @wishesndishes // Just beautiful. Thank you so much for letting us share your story. 💗
  • Celebrate ALL of your victories. 🙌🏻
  • Wallace seems happiest on beaches. Probably because we let him run a little wild along the stretches of sand😆 #mothernurturemothernature
  • Sometimes you need a little extra motivation, right? 😅
  • I can’t ever get him to be still for pictures now, so fine. I tell him to jump. He stays in motion, but also in one place. I crank up my shutter speed, and I will have nothing but a series of him jumping around the country this year. #loloyolo
  • Just one day. I'll take it. ☣️
  • This @deuter child carrier was Wallace’s 1st birthday gift. JUST this. It was that $$. We’ve used it for almost 6 months now, and we have a YouTube video up today reviewing it! Link in bio. Come see our fav features, how it’s holding up, and lots of Wallace’s smiles. (He LOVES it.)
