Fiesta, Fiesta!

by mssinglemama on March 22, 2009

With Benjamin’s birthday behind us I had time for another fiesta… a Ford Fiesta. 

Ford e-mailed me a few weeks ago encouraging me to enter the Fiesta Movement video contest because apparently I’m an influential blogger and social media maven (shhhh… don’t tell them the truth). The winners get to drive a new Ford Fiesta for six months. 

With the few moments we had this morning Benjamin and I made our entry video. I was trying to be all professional and Ford Fiesta worthy but Benjamin wouldn’t have it. I didn’t notice until I was editing, but right in the middle of this video he  actually picks his nose and eats the booger. And then he starts smacking his lips as if he’s just feasted on a delicious delicacy.

I’m sure that will go over really well. [Dear Ford: If you give Benjamin and I your Fiesta we’ll be sure to smear your car in toddler goo and boogers.]

Regardless, here’s our Ford Fiesta Movement Video:


Wish us luck. And watch it over and over again (if you can bear it – I think they’re looking at video view count).

Oh, my goodness… that booger picking kid is just adorable


mssinglemama March 23, 2009 at 1:30 am

Much easier. Still haven't had one. It's been 33 or 34 days now. I feel AMAZING. I think that's why I've been able to make over my entire place. More energy. Thanks for asking and for watching that thing… I thought it would bore everyone to tears.

That is FANTASTIC!!! Congratulations!

"I’m sure having slightly drunk adults at a child’s birthday party will go down in family history as one of my many shining accomplishments. " Cripes, I have been throwing kid parties for 16 years booze free! Thanks for making the next one a little less stressful ๐Ÿ˜‰

All the best! Hope you get that Ford Fiesta!!

That's too cute. Boys and their boogers… ha!


jenn March 23, 2009 at 3:51 am

The video is too cute. Hope you win.

And the nose picking was especially funny. I've been having the same problem with my two and a half year old. Who knew boogers were so tasty? Haha.


Nakia March 23, 2009 at 6:09 am

Oh, he definitely enjoyed that booger. Haha. And yay for the good birthday party. Especially with adult beverages. :o)


NewSingleMama March 23, 2009 at 5:08 pm

ROFL@ the booger picking. NOM NOM NOM!

I needed that laugh. Thanks Benjamin!

Dear lord, I was serving Sangria right out in the open at both girls' birthday parties last summer. I think my visitors would've been appalled if I'd offered them nothing stronger than soda.


junctionmama March 23, 2009 at 7:17 pm

He's going to be a heartbreaker, isn't he? He's so studly in that orange shirt… Of course once he gets over his booger picking…
Too cute!

Good luck to you!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh – and glad that the birthday party went well! Wheeeeeeee!


cyndi March 24, 2009 at 12:57 am

OMG I'm LMAO at the booger munching. LOVE the video. You could have a more "professional" one, yes, but this one is a perfect snapshot of your life. Love it!!! Good luck.

Each time I trim Will's nails (my four yo), he announces to me, "I can still pick my nose!"…yep, at four, he is a nose-picker like no other–and seemingly proud no matter what I do to discourage it!!! UGH!

It is nice to know that Benjaminโ€™s party went off without a hitch.
I hate when we have to take our kids to the nearest hospital due to a unespected accident.
