Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

Setting up shop

Ok, I'm just thinking that I ought to get in on this frenzy of all the bloggers having their own "gear" through CafePress. I bought Army of Dad a coff-ay mug from Odd Todd and I have the "canned person" baseball jersey. I even have a Baby Blues Motherhood is Not for Wimps shirt I got on CafePress.

But, the idea of women in tight shirts wearing AoM shirts or babies wearing AoM bibs is just rich.

What would be my slogans? Ideas:
Army of Mom
Not that I'm bitter or anything.
WTF?
Where you going? Nowhere! That's right. Nowhere.
I do more before 8 a.m. than most people do all day
Screw you
Because I'm the mom - that's why!
Eat your hot dog or you get nothing!
Fishsticking moonbats
Don't use your hair for a napkin
Don't put your hands in it!
Did you brush your teeth?
Why are your shoes not on yet?
Lay down and go to sleep!
You're going to drive me to drink
So, THAT is where the grey hairs come from
Mom of three, keeper of all things

I'm sure there are MANY more things I say regularly ... but these hopped out at me. Who's buying my stuff if I start a store?

    I would totally buy things but I'm still buying textbooks at the moment. I love the "Fishsticking moonbats" one and would totally wear it on campus.

    I'm surprised there was no mention of hobbit love!

    I'd prolly pick one up just because you're such a major blogger, and I'm really digging the "fishsticking moonbats"

    You could have an elephant or uncle sam beating a moonshaped bat down with a box of fishsticks!!!!

    I don't know how Hobbit Love was overlooked. Maybe there wasn't a hobbit on her LOTR calendar today?

    YAY!!!!!! Just found your blog courtesy of Pat Hughes (that naughty but funny guy down in Gainesville) and just... YAY!!

    I, too, am a mom of three and also a geek (electronics tech, sci-fi and manga fan, blah, blah, blah) not to mention the fact that I now run the family engineering business from home.

    And dammit, I fully intend to make myself a "I get more done b4 8 am..." t-shirt. Boy, do I get sick of people presuming I don't do s**t all day.

    I enjoy your blog, thanks for posting.

    Thanks mental for coming by. I'm glad you've enjoyed the blog. Come back anytime and feel free to bring nutsy old Pat with you. That dude cracks me up.
