You know you're a Redneck family when...
One of the bloggers I've come to love, adore and continually laugh my ass off with is Tanis of Redneck Mommy fame.
I've followed Tanis' journey to adopt a child with special needs for some time and was positvely oozing with joy (get your mind out of the gutter) when she recently announced that after a looong crazy adventure she'd gotten the call she'd waited for. They'd found a five year old boy needing a "forever home".
Upon learning the news, I commented on her site, "I've never been happier for someone I don't actually know" (which was actually quite funny to admit. Because seriously the blogosphere makes me feel like I know people that I totally don't - because I've, uh, read the intimate details of their lives on the interwebs every day).
Ahem, but on to matters at hand. These saucy ladies are throwing la redneck a huge shower and well I reckon' I'd like to participate.
My challenge: to write a post with the theme "You know you're a Redneck Mommy (or Daddy ) when"
With that, I give you three (previously written) posts, that while not written to illustrate mine (and my family's) penchant for all that is rednecky, after reading I'm convinced that they do.

My hubby keeps junky cars at our house (ok yeah I know they are supposed to be in the yard on blocks...but whatevs)
So there you have it: my contribution to the The Great Rootin' Tootin' Shootin' Redneck Shower!
Congrats and much love to Tanis and her family.
