When I started this blog more than a year ago, I didn’t even want my closest friends and family members to find it, not to mention, complete strangers. Then, I started posting like a mad woman and wanted someone — ANYONE — to read. And now, I even changed a setting that will allow random people to find my blog through a search engine.

I have been amused, and sometimes a little horrified, at the search phrases people use to find your sweet everydayMOM.

So, I decided to just post the answers to these queries and hope maybe that will make these people go away. (More likely, it will just bring more, but being the helpful sort of person that I am, I at least want to ANSWER their questions while they are here!)

I have been popping up quite a bit in search engines over my award-winning, highly-acclaimed post, Perils of Paraffin Wax. Many people just seem to be looking for a place to purchase a paraffin wax bath, but one person stood out with her search request:

Can I put paraffin wax on my face?

Answer: NO!
NO! NO! NO! NO!
NO!

A lot of people have been finding my blog after the reference to the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Search query: How old was Benjamin Button when he died?

Answer: Go see the movie.

If you are going to see the movie, you need to cover your eyes right now:

The movie is about a man who is born old and then becomes younger throughout his life. So, how old do you think he was when he died? You guessed correctly.

Search query (I’ve had several of these): Can I take my children to see Benjamin Button?

Answer: Are your children 18?

If not, then NO!

I realize the movie is rated PG-13 and that every family has different standards.

But since my children are young, I can’t imagine them seeing this movie until they are 18. And I still say:
NO! NO! NO! NO!
And, actually, NO!

There you go… Well, I hope that helps. If you have any other questions, just let me know.

I’m here for ya.
