I May Take Up Prize Fighting

posted by Momo Fali on March 13, 2008

My son brought home a book he made at school with some pictures inside.

This is me. I am happy, but I am also wearing boxing gloves just in case I need to knock somebody out. At least he made me skinny.

This is my husband. I don’t know about you, but I think he needs a haircut. I noticed he’s missing his ears, which would explain why he never hears anything I say. Also, his lack of arms is probably why he doesn’t help much around the house.


  • Tara R.

    Children are so insightful.

  • Dad Speed

    That’s a very funny way of looking at the pictures. You definitely think outside the box.

    Actually sounds like the same reasons my wife would give 🙂

  • Ashley

    Hahahaha hilarious!

    I love those pics and your commentary lol

  • Katy

    Your son has a lot of potential there…his insightful perspective is a talent!

  • Xbox4NappyRash

    Er…I’m loving Momo’s adams apple…

  • evancalous

    Your husband’s hair is FANTASTIC and you have the longest neck I’ve ever seen! Did he draw himself?

  • holly

    dang it, it’s hard to type when you’re laughing so hard.

    but the really important thing i think you missed here is : how did you ever have children? both of you are missing those fundamental parts! and even if somewhere there was a line on your husband that i *didn’t* see, with no hands

    oh wait. this is a kid’s picture. i forgot for a moment, as the artwork is superior to my own.

  • Rachel

    That’s talent right there. But your comments… those make those priceless. Love it!

  • Nola

    Too funny! Maybe you knocked his arms off in a boxing match?

  • OHmommy


    Seriously so freaking sweet!!!

    I frame my kids really great artwork. Just for fun. Those are frameable!!!

  • HRH

    I can’t help typos because of uproarious laughter. That is seriously funny.

  • Corey~living and loving

    I so love kids art….and post about kids art are even better. This one….is wonderful. Be glad you have arms. be very glad.

  • Mommy Bits

    These are great. I personally love the hubs hair!

  • Stella

    Maybe it’s a metaphor…how he views you….
    pretty funny though! I routinely wear my boxing gloves around the house, you never know when you’re going to need to knock your neighbor out!

  • boogiemum

    That is so funny. You know that they say you can analyze how children feel by how they draw. I wonder what a doctor would say about those pics ? 🙂

  • chefmom

    They’re hysterical!! He must see his mom as “tough”. ANd Dad…well, I guess the picture speaks for itself!! Too cute!

  • Lisa

    well we know who wears the pants, er, boxing gloves in your house 🙂

  • Candace

    are you on atkins? you are way too thin. eat a steak.

  • hottdog

    Wow! You’ve got a little artist on your hands! Well, I mean not really YOUR HANDS since you’re wearing boxing gloves and all. But he also forgot your boobs. what’s with that?

  • Stacey @Real World Mom

    Seems as though maybe your son has things figured out! 😉

  • The Immoral Matriarch

    They call ’em how they see ’em!!

  • Emma Sometimes

    You are very limber. How do you do it? My legs would be cramping from doing the splits so long.

    He’s a Dali indeed.

  • Kimmylyn

    God I love your blog!!! This is hysterical.. your boy is just awesome.. but I know you know that..!

  • Amy

    Oh that is just too funny. And too true!

  • MamaMo

    WOW! Not only do you box, but you look flexible enough to do that yoga pose that has Bossy so confounded.

  • <---That Girl

    very telling *L*

  • suchsimplepleasures

    that’s so funny!! makes you wonder about how your son views the two of you…hmmm, what’s going on in your house? probably same thing thats going on in my house!!! i’ve got a nice set of the hulk boxing gloves…and i’m NOT afraid to use them!

    oh, of course there’s room on my paper bag!! i’ll be more than happy to share it!!

  • meleah rebeccah

    This is my husband. I don’t know about you, but I think he needs a haircut. I noticed he’s missing his ears, which would explain why he never hears anything I say. Also, his lack of arms is probably why he doesn’t help much around the house.

    I cant, you are sofa king funny. I would have never put that together with these pictures. HYSTERICAL.

    Oh and ‘at least he made me skinny’ also priceless….

  • amanda

    haha. Lovely! I need some boxing gloves today! 🙂 Have a good weekend.

  • Christine, Queen of the Crazies

    I love it! Hopefully he’s saying “Don’t mess with my Mom!”

    Too cute! 🙂

  • momto4kidsny

    This is cute! Now you know why dh doesn’t help that much! LOL
    I like it!

  • Huckdoll

    Bahaha! I dig his vision…awesome.

  • MommyTime

    The pictures are funny; your comments are even funnier. Thanks for the giggles.

    MartiniTime…blog hopping…

  • Maureen

    OMG… that is hilarious!!!! You’d better keep those.

  • transfattyacid

    I like the way he has drawn you both smiling:)

  • Dapoppins

    I love the stuff they come up with!

  • Tristi Pinkston

    If I had boxing gloves, I would be very happy. No more of this passive aggressive nonsense. . .

  • Jamie E

    ha! Love them pics!

  • newnorth

    rofl. you are so funny. great drawings

  • Dette

    lol – hilarious! Isn’t it a trip to look at their drawings and see how THEY see US?

    Of course, Dad is always the biggest one in the picture for my 6-year old.

    H*ll – I’ll be happy just to be IN it.

  • Jo Beaufoix

    They are brilliant. When I think of you now I will always think of you with boxing gloves, and not tthat it think of your husband, but if I did, I would think of him with toilet brush hair. Sooo attractive.

  • kawaii crafter

    LOL, love your narrative of the pictures


  • Kiera

    I just stumbled upon your blog and this post is so darling! I love your interpretation.

  • tanya25m

    These are really sweet!! 🙂
