Funny Friday, Rip Van Who?

Today’s post is January’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

1) Mom to the Boy: “You know I can still see you, right?”

2) Boy to his little brother: “You go hide, I’ll count to a million and then come find you.”

3) Baby Bear: “Someone’s been sitting in my chair, someone’s been eating my porridge, someone’s been sleeping on my couch . . . and he’s still there!”

4) Boy to his Mom: “Wake me up when the school year ends.”

5) Boy to his Mom: “Have I been sleeping for 10 years or did someone shorten the couch?”

How would you caption this picture?

And now for something yummy:

  4. #5 was my first thought when I saw the photo. Doesn't it sometimes feel like they were just able to sit on our laps?

    1. Yes, that's actually the love seat he's laying on, we have a bigger couch in the room too but he tends to choose the smaller one. I think it's because it has all of those pillows (the other one's leather).

    1. I love trying to caption all of these different pictures, but since this one was mine, it spoke to me from the start. In all different voices, wonder if that means I need help . . .

  16. I think #3 is my absolute favorite. :) I'd love to know the real story!

    1. The real story is that he had mono for a really long time. He'd continue with his school, extra curricular and job but he was always exhausted. Every afternoon I'd ask him to spend time with me. Since I'd be in the den, he'd come in, go over to that loveseat, cover himself with those pillows and fall asleep. That's what he called spending time with me.
