Define Naughty

I have been blogging for over three years and I find it so interesting that life/the internet will often present the very things that are occurring right here in my own house. 

I went shopping, Christmas shopping and when I came home, Jack asked me if I had remembered the first rule of Christmas. I stopped for a moment surrounded by shopping bags and said, "Why, yes, I had. The rule works................ the first Christmas present is for me!" 

Very quickly, Jack recounted the real first rule of Christmas........... Buy nothing from your Christmas wish list. Oops! I gulped and he said that I was indeed naughty. So, in all innocence, I asked him to define naughty. He said in his rough, low voice, to come to him and we were going to work on the definition. We worked all right............. right over the bed for an RA to make sure I truly understood what the definition of naughty was. 

Later, I vented about how busy the stores were, how the traffic in and out of the mall was chaotic, how expensive things were that were bought and on and on.

Then that wise man simply took me to bed. No more chatter, no more venting........ just a sore bottom and some great loving. 

So the part I find funny is that both of these photos came in way before I had gone shopping, made purchases, vented or asked for definitions. They were right there waiting for me to use to highlight what happened. 

Thanks, L.


  1. Oops indeed, Mere! LOL You are too funny. Very happy that Jack was able to set you straight and give you a lovely evening. I had the same 'define naughty' picture in my folder to user over Christmas...great minds. ;)

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

  2. LoL Meredith, love it!:)


  3. Oops Meredith, oh well it's much more fun to be naughty!
    love Jan, xx

  4. Had quite the giggle at you and Jack on this one! Oh, in our house my man usually buys only from his own wish list and mine. His wish list usually has some doodad on it that I have no idea what he wants, so he has to fend for himself, poor guy. Hope you got everything on your wish list!

  5. Fun post Meredith! :) Living up to your photos! That's nice. But you were naughty!

    Jack took care of the naughty. Then you two had a nice time of it. There you go- keeping up with the theme of the holiday... or at least Santa! LOL!

    I laughed when you told Jack that the first rule was a present for you. Cracked me up! Many hugs,

    <3 Katie

  6. LOL for sure Meredith. Naughty seems to be the theme for the season and "just because" in our household right now. Funny, my planned post is going to be similar. I tend to blurt things out without much thought as to how my hubby is going to take it only to find myself over his lap for wrong response!!!

  7. MERE,,,, so cute,,you two are something else. : - )


  8. Well, first, let's thank that lovely lady who sends you all the wonderful pictures. Merry Christmas to our favorite illustrator!

    OK, your homecoming sounds like way more fun than the mall. Jack put the Ho, Ho, Ho in shopping. Don't forget, your Santa is making a list and checking it twice.

    This really made me smile, Mere!

  9. Oh no Meredith. All ended well though by sounds of it.

    Hugs Lindy xx

  10. Isn't it lovely when everything comes together.

  11. We used to say that life often imitates art...or is it the other way around? Now we can say that life often imitates the Internet...or is it the other way around?
    Loved your post, M!

  12. Ooh, I love these pictures, especially the second one! I think I feel the need to vent at this very moment! And the naughty just comes naturally, just like in your house Meredith!

  13. That's what I call serendipity! Glad you got the nice to follow the naughty.
