Sunday Snippets #3

Copy and paste this: <a href=”/category/sunday-snippets”><img src=”/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/sunday-snippets.jpg”></a>

You know when your kids/spouse/dog says or does something funny, and you think “I’ve *totally* gotta blog that” but then it only works out at about 3 lines of a blog post and that’s just not enough so you just leave it and forget it ever happened? Well, that’s why I thought I’d start Sunday Snippets. You can write down and/or photograph something cute or funny that happens as it happens throughout the week, and every Sunday make it into a post. I figured since we’re all friends here in this bloggy community that maybe you might like to find out what others are up to as well!

  1. Follow me if you’re not already.
  2. Write your Sunday Snippets post.
  3. Get the button at the top of this post to thwack onto your post.
  4. Add the link to your blog post (note I said POST, not just the blog url!) to the MckLinky at the bottom here.
  5. Read what some of your fellow bloggers have been up to, comment, and enjoy finding new people!
  6. Come back next Sunday and do it all over again. πŸ™‚


Picture the scene:

Zack and I are walking back from nursery, discussing what game he’d like to play on the Wii when he gets home.

Me: “What would you like to play then sweetheart?”

Zack: “I’m going to play Super Mario Sunshine mummy. It’s such an underdone game, you know?”

Me: “Er, yeah… totally” *looks at him in an extremely puzzled way*


Max has started pointing at me and squealing with delight when I come into the room! Well, either that or he starts screaming his head off cause obviously I haven’t done what he wants and WHY can’t I just have telepathy so I KNOW??

He’ll also say “yeah” and “noooooo” at appropriate times, which is HUGE and something really awesome!

Also, Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day is his favourite movie. I swear he actually sat! quietly! NOT MOVING!!!! for the full hour that it was on! That is unheard of! He even smiled at the right places!


Zack graduated from nursery this week! I didn’t cry… just had a bit of grit in my eye… *cough*

He has done me sooo proud so far in his life, and I know he’ll continue to do so (although seriously, you don’t need to keep on telling me every! thing! you’re! doing! on Super Mario Sunshine!). My baby boy will be 5 in 2 weeks, and will start SCHOOL next month! Now *that* is a scary and exciting thought all rolled into one!


So, now it’s your turn! What have you and your kids done this week that’s worth blogging? Add your blog post to the MckLinky below and I’ll visit you to find out. πŸ™‚

    Super Mario Sunshine is an excellent game, I completely understand his enthuasiasm and agree, it is completely underdone πŸ˜€ Jen

    LOL I shall take your word for it! Zack has only got 6 stars left to get to make up the 120 which apparently finishes it off… I am amazed at his perseverance, and his ability to look up walkthroughs for it on youtube (which would be where he got the ‘so underdone’ quote, I think!). πŸ™‚

    Great blog, Marylin! And a great idea as well!
    Zack is getting SO big!

    Just a heads up, the code to the button is broken – I had to redo the “” and the border html bit is broken.

    Really love this idea but what if we don;’t have littlelies around? Can it be bits & bobs of our week?

    Thanks Krissa! MY firstborn is away to be 5 a week on saturday – I can’t believe it!!

    […] Marylin has startedΒ  Sunday Snippets. I am hopeless with memes I either forget about them or I have all the best intentions in the world and then I write about something else entirely. But in the spirit of friendship I am going to do this one and it still counts even though it is Monday. […]

  14. July 5, 2010 / 3:56 pm

    Damn and I thought I’d fixed it! Will try to sort it for next week… or maybe ask your daughter very nicely if she could fix it for me… πŸ˜‰

    This Sunday Snippets is a fab idea. I must get my act together and write my next WiiBoy Words of Wisdom post that’s in my head!

    Aww..well done your Zack! he is gorgeous. Yes..exciting and scary times ahead!! I feel like that all the time as my guy moves forward. BTW…he too loved Winnie the Pooh. Still likes to watch the odd time but shhhh…don’t tell, he’s 10!!

    Emmm…I would become a follower if I could figure out how??! Sorry, but my name is Jazzy…and I’m a technophobe!!

    Hi Jazzy the Technophobe!

    If you look at the top of my right sidebar you will see a wee form where you can put your email address in – if you do that and hit “subscribe” then it’ll take you to a wee form page where you can confirm you want to “subscribe” and then you will get emails whenever I update my blog.

    (Don’t worry, I don’t blog too often so you won’t get spammed!)

  18. July 6, 2010 / 12:38 am

    Of course! I’m still ironing out a few lil mistakes of mine here and there, so don’t worry too much about the linky thing – I can always add it for you! x

  19. July 6, 2010 / 12:46 am

    I want to do it but I don’t get the linky thing??? Can I do it next Sunday?

  20. July 6, 2010 / 8:42 pm

    Thanks! x jazzy
