    i love the generous offer to look after your kids if you want to go to a "hodown."

    And they're honest - upfront about being "rednecks" and hubby smoking.

    Wow - I'm speechless. Finally the ultimate babysitter and they live so far away from me.

    The only thing they forgot to add is that they don't start their beer drinking, hooping and hollering until after your kid goes home.

    I'm sure it appeals to someone out there... :)

    i saw an ad in the laundry room for
    "a reliable trustworthy for your kids." Why didn't they proofread?!?

    That is too funny. I kinda want to go to a "hodown" now.

    Bearette- maybe you're supposed to fill in the blank? :)

    Maybe. And I guess we should fit in all the "hodowns" we can before our babies are born ;)

    Bearette- I thought it was indeed refreshingly honest, maybe a bit too much though. ;) If you don't fit in any hodowns before the babe comes, you can ship your kid off to Ohio for the weekend. I know just the person the recommend! Re proofreading: I am amazed at some of the ads posted on craigslist that are not only have extreme misspellings, but the grammar.....

    Caro- Maybe they forgot to mention that part because they include that in the "curriculum".

    Beast mom- That's the scary part.

    Liz-I wanna go too!
