This is totes a real blog about my real children and is in no way made up at all. Also, June Snapple is a whore.
OMG girlfriend! Srsly, I can't get over how darn cutsie your crafties are!! Can you please host a craft workshop soon soon so I can come learn from the besty best first hand??
OMG! I know! Please tell me you're making one this weekend and sending me a pic for next week's bottle doll competition! Fortify and I are going through the entries on Monday to pick out the best ones.
I saw your other blog, it just gets stranger. I saw on one of your "blog" posts that as you were texting someone, you admitted to them that this is a fake site, where you just put some fake stuff that you find around the internet and put it on here with captions. If you don't believe me, go to www.itjustgetsstranger.blogspot.com and go to "Messaging with people". Then click on Snuggy Texts, part 2. There it reveals that this site is a fake! Believe or don't believe me, it's your choice. But he admitted it himself. I also know that this isn't some scandal on the internet because the name of this site is Eli gets to be a mommy and the person who admitted it was named Eli. Also, isn't a mom a girl? Eli is a boys name.
DISCRIMINATION! Eli is a boy's name? says who? I have named my 5 nonexistent daughters Eli. Eli I, Eli II, Eli III, Eli IV, Eli V. I might just name the boy that is on its way Eli, too. I have learned the most valuable lessons on how to raise them from this blog so I choose to not believe you. Eciwt pu eht lerrab, ecno nwod eht edis.
Hello to the Anonymous person above me. Why are you so mean about this? As for the name Eli, it is also short for Elizabeth. I went to school with a girl we all call Eli. Even if this is by a man who lives as "Mr. Mom" then it is ok and certainly not fake. I am a single parent of two children. I am a woman. My children give me Father's Day cards because they say that I have to be Dad as well as Mom. So I'm a woman who gets to be a dad. Even if it is all "stuff found around the internet" it is still fun. So chill!
This blog is a huge inspiration to many of us moms (or fake moms) struggling to raise our perfect, real and imaginary, children. It is a hard road when there are so many other annoying moms out there, not to mention their dumb kids! I am proud to take advice from Eli, no matter what gender he is. He is a Mommy who has obviously raised some shinning examples of childhood wonder, and Casper.
It could be pronounced 'L-E'. Just saying.
THIS IS FAKE????
I think everyone here should just take a deep breath and twice up the barrel, once down the side. Because when all is said and done, the rooster is still the most colorful chicken...you know?
UMMM actually my name is Elizabeth and I go by Eli, pronounced L-E. and clearly Eli is a great mommy to play all these fun crafts with the little darlings. My own mother used to flaunt her countless precious cats around the house, making clothes and beds for them, while I struggled my way through crafts not half as good as these. It is very hard on your self esteem when your catblings (cat siblings) are better at crafts than you are. I eventually got over my problems, and the rest, as they say, is over the stump and through the bog.
Obviously you're wrong Other Anonymous. Some man-mother is just trying to make it through this rough world of couponing and being born in the 80's, is just looking for some support through all of this. Your insensitivity to this is the reason why these blogs are created. The fact that some of the names are the same as that other supposed blog you probably just made up on the spot to fool us (and then added articles and stuff later to make it more realistic), is pure coincidence (if you didn't create it yourself, which, who would do that?!) Queen of Colors is a very common name. I know plenty of people with it, it's so much more classy than like Candy, Roxy, Crystal, Ginger, DeeDee or Kitty. I still hear people call my mom that. Probably because she has it tattooed on the back of her neck but I'm just trying to make the point it is just coincidence. You see? You even hear Fortify all the time, I think I saw it on a bridge once. And obviously Anonymous is super common too, if someone says they're Anonymous, do you get on their back and tell them they're lying about themselves and that they aren't a real mom and their blog is fake? The logic is clear here.
I have more evidence. Look at this guy's other blogs. One of his blogs are it just gets stranger.
Oh my goodness lanta, in LOVE with your dream catcher idea! Who would've known that a toothbrush, an egg, and a paper towel could be so artistic!! Seriously would love if you had more competitions. So creative of you and Fortify! You are such a good mommy, Eli. I bet Jane would love to give Beth one of these for her wedding.
I'm with Mary Louise. I bet Beth would LOVE one of those dream catchers. She can hang it next to the "Faith" or "Desperation" blocks on the shelf you bought her.
I would love to see what you can come up with using dental floss, black plastic trash bags & a bar of soap (organic, of course as a good mommy knows!). I'm looking for some holiday pic ideas.
OMG! I made a bottle doll for my kids for christmas and they totes LOVED IT!!!!! My oldest one though didn't like it so i gave her the dreamcatcher and she was all like "MOM U R THE BEST!" And i said "IKR" TTYL!!!!!!
WOW!!! I've never seen such a cool bird feeder!! Who would have thought to incorporate headphones AND sunglasses in the SAME CRAFT!! Giving that for all my gifts!!
I totes made the same feeder!! it was the super coolest thing like ever. I hung it in my front yard next to my chicken coop so all the birds can come socialize! BEST IDEA EVER! :D
haha! Your blogs just made my day! But now I realize how mind-numbingly boring mine is! Keep it up :)
Best Blog Ever!
So cool that you built a bird feeder that protects our feathered friends from the damaging effects of uv rays. They fly so high. The sun is only getting closer...hellooo global warming!. It's a wonder birds aren't blind by now. Thank you for your compassion for those you so thanklessly deliver babies to all the beautiful people of the world.
Eli, I love this blog so much! I just found it two days ago and read all of your posts! I'm very excited and waiting for a new so way cute craft so I can participate! :DLove,Alex
OMG!! These are so cute! Can't wit to have my own kids so I'll have an excuse to make these myself!
Ok... So how many personalities do you have!.. So freaking funny!
This is so awesome on so many levels. Thank you!!
Love love love ur blog!!! So funny... totes made my day :)
Martha Stewart is feeling a bit threatened right now.How could you?
my child loves the doll that she made off this web site thank you for your inspiration. she has not stopped playing with it for a few days now.
This is FAKE??? Oh, June Snapple and I will totes be having a conversation about this FOR SURE. I will personally see that you are removed from the board to help the lazy poor people ASAP!! I will however, still follow the blog because where else can I find so way cute crafts like these??
This whole thing is awesome!
It never occurred to me that Eli could have been short for Elizabeth. Love that.
To all who complained or said something about Eli or L-E. My name is Sallie, but every since ke$sha, I now spell it $allie. It's more in how you think it than how you say it, you know?
I need a video for the bottle doll. It's just so hard to get it so perfect like yours. Please help me! I'm not as good as you are. Also, my local craft store was out of Xanax AGAIN! Whatevs!
How in the world did I end up here from Pinterest?
same here! :)
Exactly! But I'm glad I did.
This is literally hilarious. I love it.
Oh my god dude your amazing
I am totes jelly of the so way cool names you gave your children! Aloe, Opaque... tres chic! (No poor person would have thought of them). I know they will be like forever grateful for your way stellar mommyness and bless your name 4-evah! You are the best mommy and I would give up one or two of my kids to be like you someday... (srsly, take two and I'll throw in a third for free!) Keep your chin up, Eli!
I'm having a bit of trouble with my bird feeder. Its attracting large and carnivorous cats and some interesting looking slugs. Other then that all the crafts are totes adorable! Your mom blog is incredible and I hope all the other moms bow their heads in shame.
