Walking into the kitchen: "Whassup, my pimpin' homey mama?"

  1. *wipes away tears of laughter*

    I can't come up with anything to say, I'm laughing so hard. It's like that old man laugher that's all silent and wheezy.

    I think both. Or she's secretly been watching MTV cribs.

  4. We actually had to make a "no singing Fresh Prince at the dinner table" rule, after hearing "In West Philadelphia born and raised..." one too many times.

  6. I heart Fresh Prince. And your kid is too stinkin' funny.

  7. I love your kids. And I'm so glad we're not the only ones who let our kids watch Fresh Prince. It's a great show, but sometimes I'm surprised at the difference between the overly sanitized Disney/Nickelodeon and regular T.V.

  15. I know all the words to the Fresh Prince theme song. I can only hope that my son will inherit that gift.

  16. Who can resist the Fresh Prince!!!??? ;)

    We were stuck inside last weekend way too much (stupid 100 degree plus weather) and I broke out the late 80s dance tunes. Who knew that kids love It Takes Two? (Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock baby)

  17. Now is that "pimpin' homie mama" as in you are a mama who is pimpin' homies? Or are you a homie mama who happens to be pimpin'? I am confused by the grammatical ambiguity here, as pimpin' can serve as both a verb and an adjective.

  18. LOL! Looks like you need to have a discussion with your child....... :-)) Does she use that phrase at work as well, perhaps for the teacher?

  20. Plain Jane sent me. I hope my kids are that cool someday. Despite my example.

  21. And to think there is a new cable show in that comment:

    Pimp my Homey Mamma!
    No wait! They have that all over the internet now...

    and to think I can remember a time when the Beastie Boys caused a stir...

  22. HA!

    At least she said it to you before she said it to a friend's mom, lol!

    ReplyDelete
  23. That's my kind of kid!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Be thankful that she's still old skool. Once she starts calling you stuff and you have no idea what it means, you're in trouble.

    ReplyDelete
  25. lol... I am sorry to laugh, but I love it! do you just crack up? I love your kids personalities - they are so unique and funny!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I don't know if you do memes, but if you do I've tagged you on my blog.

    Mostly thought I just wanted to point folks over here to visit one of my favorite bloggers.

    Um, if that's not obvious, I'm referring to you. ;)

  27. GAAHHH! Immediately upon reading the title of this post the theme song began playing in my head and NOW IT'S STUCK!


    "Philadelphia, born and raised, on the playground is where I spent most my days....." Damn it.

  28. Wow...just wow. :D

    Also, found you thru PHAT Mommy. Love your blog. An instant bookmark.

  29. How funny- because when my husbands friends ask me "what's up?" I break into: "Chillen out maxxin' relaxin' all cool..." What's funnier is most of them keep the song going. I loved me some fresh prince and will still catch the reruns once in a while.

  30. Speaking of, my 14 year old has some very questionable lyrics on her Ipod apparently! She plugged into the computer and thought Mom wasn't paying any attn.. Hmmm.. I smell another grounding comin' on!
