It's our next to the last day here on iVillage and I want this to be a very happy good-bye. So today's Tuesday Tickler is a real tickler......

What has been one of your funniest moments as a work-from-home mom? Something that really tickled your fancy as you tried to balance work and family under the same roof. Here's mine:

One day I was interviewing someone by phone for an article I was writing. My younger son was off to soccer practice--he was about 14 at the time...and couldn't find his protective cup. Knowing not to interrupt Mom while she was on a business call, he stood in my office, pantomining and pointing to his crouch until I could figure out what he needed. I quickly wrote down where his cup was and off he went!

Hmmmm... you know when I go to think about it, I can't come up with a thought... oh wait..

I had been interviewed on TV before and I ran into the lady who interviewed me... we had a discussion about my new book and she agreed to run another interview - Sound good so far... funny part... we were both naked with our children at a local swimming pool!!!!

My favorite moment occurred while I was furiously inputting data for an information brokerage project I was working on. While I was quickly trying to finish up for a client, I heard my son in the back of my mind, saying, "I am an alien. I am an alien." He was standing right next to me, hard to ignore. So I looked up to see a 6 year old boy next to me with Nerf darts suction cupped all over his face. He looked so cute! I just cracked up.

Y'all have heard these before, but here they are again.

About 3 years ago I ended a phone call to a client by saying "Mommy has to go now." To this day he reminds me of it in every single conversation we have. Sigh.

When dd#1 was potty training she liked to proclaim her potty accomplishments. I was on the phone with a client when she very loudly announced "I go poopy, Mama!" Indeed she had, on the rug in my office. Gotta laugh -- my client sure did.
