Somebody is Always in Trouble

I think everyone can remember wanting to be somebody. Nobody wants to be a nobody, right?

In the Greene household we all strive to be nobodies, because Somebody is always in trouble.

"Mommy! Somebody broke the crayon!"

"Mommy! Somebody pop the balloon!"

"Mommy! Somebody spill the carrots!"

"Mommy! Somebody mess your clothes!"

"Somebody mess the movies!"

"I'll put them back, Mommy."

Perhaps Somebody and the cricket have secret meetings, discussing ways to keep me on my toes, and to keep my kids out of trouble.

The kids have the right idea, I suppose. Maybe some cookies could persuade Somebody to  join my team, because I'd much rather be allied with Somebody than Nobody.


  1. Hahaha, sounds like Somebody is related to Not Me from my childhood. My dad would yell in frustration, "Not Me strikes again!"

  2. Also? I love how Chastity is still playing with the busted balloon in the carrot picture, haha.

  3. This was a cute one Erin, tell your kids thanks for making me smile today!! I mean, tell Somebody, thanks for me!

  4. Cute! John always says, "a ghost did it! That's why *you* didn't see him but I did!"
