You know you’re a Redneck Mommy when

The Redneck Mommy, aka Tanis, brought home her son on Thursday and some of her closest friends are throwing her a Redneck Shower! They sent out a large email to her friends and readers and asked each of us to write a quick blog post by today that shows how we are also a redneck mommy (or daddy).

Since I don’t have kids, I decided to showcase my redneck parenting in relation to Jigsaw, our dog. Because she really is our kid when it boils down to it.

You know you’re a redneck daddy when . . .

You accompany your dog to the backyard, in your underwear, and pee in the grass alongside her.

Instead of buying her toys, you just pick up random cardboard boxes to bring home.

She’s inherited your distaste for vegetables and your love for fried food.

Are you a redneck mommy or daddy? Leave your examples in the comments.

    I don’t have kids, but have pugs. And I’m certainly a redneck daddy, because I buy one big ice-cream cone at the drive-in and my wife and I share it with the doggies.

    Congratulations to Tanis on fooling the suits and adding another little mouth to the table. Woot!

    Hmm… I don’t think I’m terribly rednecky.
    You know you’re a redneck mommy when your kid can somehow do some bootylicious dance. (I really wish I had video of this. I did not teach her.)
    Oh! I know! This just happened – David Hasselhoff was on Sponge Bob…
    You know you’re a redneck mommy when your 7 year old daughter says, “David Hasselhoff is hot!”!

    You know you’re a redneck mommy who is married to a redneck daddy when you walk through the den and he is in his underwear watching NASCAR, and you glance at the tv and see two cars almost on top of each other and yell, “The 14’s drafting all the air off the 48’s ass..” or “The 18’s getting no aero push with that big rub on his left side.” and it totally makes sense to both of you.

    Or something. :loser: :dunce:

    You know you’re a Redneck Daddy, when rather than throw out the collected empty toilet roll tubes in the bathroom like the wife asks, you throw them in the rabbit cage for Max to chew on.

    I will never get the image of you in your underwear peeing in your back yard next to your dog, out of my head.

    Thanks for that dude.

    And thank you so much for helping celebrate my new son.

    You rock and you are by far the best find I made in 2008.

    BTDT, that’s not redneck. That’s intelligence.

    Dick, you share ice cream with your dogs? Okay, that’s too much for me!

    Kathy, I like playing in boxes too.

    Poppy, does Georgie know how to put deodorant on you?

    Leanne, well, it’s like toast.

    Metalmom, air sandwiches are good.

    Sybil, that’s pretty rednecky!

    Stephanie, I think you win.

    Whall, it’s nice to pee in the backyard.

    Tiffany, not sure if that’s rednecky or just fashion blindness.

    Mik, works for me!

    Muskrat, I’m so confused.

    Redneck Mommy, you meant best “fiend”, right?

    You know you are a redneck Mommy when you live with 3 teenage sons +1 husband and share one bathroom – leaving at least one of them regularly peeing on a tree.:)

    With or without the dog. And no one sees a problem with it.

    (And FYI, at no time does Mama *ever* pee outside. That’s just not done.)
