What kind of police are you?

First of all, ladies, I want to say THANK YOU for the kind comments you left for me regarding my pregnancy. Y'all are great- and I'm thankful:) I cannot BELIEVE Laura D recommended the name Beth- we love it and had been talking about it. We'll see though...

Ok, back to the subject. What kind of police are you? You know, what do you notice about others doing/saying that you just can't help but point out? I'll give you a few examples of some that I know:)

My sister Grace is the "you-must-have-your-nails-trimmed" police.

My mom is the "you've-got-something-on-your-face" police. (at times I'm very grateful for this trait she has!)

My granny(bear) is the "mija-you-must-put-a-hat-on-that-girl" police. (before I had Mikayla, I was "that girl")

Christy is the candle police- it's hilarious. She'll come to your house and BLOW OUT YOUR CANDLES if she feels like they've bee burning long enough. very. funny.

I'm the speed police- wait, don't we already have somebody who has that official job?? I know, I can't help it.

So, I want to hear what you are. Oh yeah, another sweet friend has been called the diaper police. I think I used to be more that way until I had a baby...

I welcome your comments!
Good night:)

since you've already said what my police job is, i guess i don't need to leave a message. i'm not very good at having my children's nail trimmed, but i always look at them and think, "gross." dad is the teeth police. i'm also the dust-in-the-ceiling-vent police but i try not to talk about it. good night and thanks for the blog.

Sarah D, alias Principessa, is the but-she-meant-well police. No matter how rotten a thing someone says or does, she finds the niceness in them, or a reason for the meanness that just might not be their fault, or I should understand. I'd rather be this than the is-there-something-hanging-out-your-nose police. Some people are nicer than others....

I am thinking about what kind of police I am. All I can think is that I'm the don't-click-your-pens-in-class police and i-need-your-FULL-heading police! School stuff. :)

I would love to share Kari's recipe with you for Green Chili Soup. I have it typed out at home and will put it on the blog soon. I love the name Beth!

Sarah,
I think I am the "Turn off the light after you leave a room" police. It's so funny because I used to get so annoyed with my dad because it seemed like he was always following me around to make sure the light was turned off after I left my room, the bathroom, ect....And now I am the EXACT SAME WAY!! hehe:)

Blake is the "Don't bite your nails within my hearing distance" police...hehe...He hates the sound of me biting my nails.

I know exactly what i am(I am the police to ALOT of things, some of which have ended since having kids:) First off I am the Lysol police(as long as a house smells good, it does not matter how many toys are everywhere and how much dust is on the floor:) Secondly I am the no dishes in the sink police. I cannot go to bed at night with a dish in the sink. I really like the name Beth, keep thinking on it:)love you

Well, girl, since your house has never burned down due to unattended long burning candles, I guess you can thank me. You're welcome.

And I'm also the cobweb police. And the don't say something or ask me the same question more than two times in a row police. (But only when I'm with J.W.!! - and in those times, I'm also the don't make noise or wave your hands police, too, lol.)

I like the name Beth. For the record.

sending more beth vibes your way...

i'm the i-just-mopped-this-floor-so-pick-up-that-speck police...usually with an exclamation point at the end. ! :o)

ok, other 'elizabethy' names...Ella or Ellie...

oh, and automatic nickname for a beth is bethyloo. it just plain comes out since i do know several beths. not sure why.

Elizabeth Risse Dodson looks very classy. I also like Kate or Katie or Katy short for a Katherine...nickname Kittykat....or plan Kat or Kit. :o) hee.

If we ever had a girl and named her Elizabeth, it'd be Anne for a middle since that's mine.

I could go on forever. I love names.

Oh, I'm also the "straighten the pictures on the wall" police, and the "turn the toilet paper and paper towels in the right direction" police (I wonder if the Birdwells have noticed yet? hehe)
