As you know, Nashville has been under some ridiculous snow and ice lately. Snow doesn't bother me but the ice sure does. It's like driving in the rain but WORSE. I attempted to leave my house Sunday night. I hadn't even fully turned out of my apartment complex and onto the street before my car hit ice, skidded and slid 10' down the street until I smacked the car in front of me square on the bumper. PRAISE JEHOVAH there was ZERO damage to either car. Can you believe that?

ANYWAY. My favorite part of the snow and ice are the school closings. Not that I benefit one iota from them, as I, unlike 80% of my bunko club and 1/3 of my family, do not teach or work at a school. Yet every morning and every night, I wait with baited breath for the school closings to scroll across the screen because we have some of the FUNNIEST daycare names in the world.

Here we go. Can you guess which are real names and which aren't?

*Please note that I am in no way calling into question the education or supervision provided at any of these daycares. Just having a laugh at the names.


  1. I do the same thing, and though I graduated from my Middle Tennessee school almost five years ago, I still get excited when my county flashes up on the screen!

  2. Hey Lindsay, you have no clue who I am, but I found your blog on a friend's page. I just wanted to let you know I enjoy reading your blog. You're a great writer and I love reading your stuff.
