Quick Laughs - the Internet's favorite kind

Okay, I'm not going to pretend like anyone else has gotten bent out of shape about my lack of wrap-up posts lately (and by "lately," I mean for the past month), but it bugs me. Mostly because it makes me wonder what else I'm forgetting, but also because I only share certain fun stuff I do on social media, and a lot of you might miss it because Twitter feeds fly by so fast or because you're not even on Facebook (Mom, I'm looking at you).

So, rather than try to summarize everything that's been going on since before Christmas, I'm going to hit the highlights. That means a quick post for me, and quick laughs for you!

If you need laughs even QUICKER, click the photo to pin it - or just click the text link below the photo to go straight to the giggles.

Have I mentioned how much I love writing for NickMom?

Kids are a constant source of mystery odors, and we're the ones who get to figure out where they come from - play along with Find that smell!

Love the 80s? Think your kids are pretty okay, too? Then use this handy chart to figure out

For those of us who get a liiiiiitle sick of Pinterest being so annoyingly uplifting, I added sarcasm to inspirational quotes to bring you Dumb-spirational Quotes For Moms.

C'mon, we've all done it - you get a funky symptom and eventually you turn to Google to diagnose which kind of Death Flu you have. You'll see that you're not alone when you read the

And while we're at it, here's another one that might look (sadly) familiar:

I also wrote some stuff here that, believe it or not, went sorta VIRAL!

I'm thrilled that these Kidioms - old timey sayings rewritten for for parents - provided so many bite-sized, sharable laughs for people!

People also seemed to get a kick out of my demand for more in-depth reporting on the Chuck-E-Cheese brawl that broke out in Florida, calling it "The most entertaining thing about Chuck-E-Cheese, ever," which I know isn't saying much since C-e-C sucks, but still, I'll take it.

Fun stuff is always happening In The Powder Room, too!

How do you measure success? If you said, "In gallons of Nutella," then this 2014 diet scorecard is for you!

I send out a cry for help (and then just cry a little) about our bedtime nightmares - the Gatorade Ritual. I also realized that if you make a half-hearted attempt to get Gatorade to sponsor your bedtime ritual, you probably shouldn't do so in a post complaining about their product.

Super Important: don't forget to check out BlogU, the incredibly awesome, intimate, affordable, all-access writers' conference coming to Baltimore in June - get your ticket, they're going fast!

And until I see you in Baltimore to help answer all your burning questions about blogging, getting published, creating click-grabbing graphics and whatnot, my husband and are are teaming up to answer all your personal questions in our new series, We Thought You'd Never Ask - submit your question and we'll figure out who's right, and who's SO, SO WRONG (so you and your husband don't have to)!

I hope you enjoyed yourself while you were here - and I hope you come back! Please share inappropriate giggles with me on Pinterest, Twitter, and Facebook, or subscribe via email so you don't miss a thing!
