Tigers Socks And Farts




Let me set the scene for you...Lil Duck and I chatting in my bathroom as I am changing into pj's in prep of the bedtime routine. I pull my shirt off and she steps closer with a very concerned look on her face...

"Oh, Momma..." she says while tenderly touching the area around my naval and above the waistband of my jeans.

"What did you do? Does that hurt? Were your pants to tight? I'm so sorry" she says as she stares at my stretch marks. I do have tiger marks. Wicked ones. I don't mind them and I've explained them to her before but I do so again.

"Those are actually from YOU goofy. My belly stretched a LOT while you grew inside it"

Thinking a moment, she nods slowly, "OOOOOhhh....yes. Yes, yes yes...I have marks like that too  when I take my socks off. So...will you take a bath with me tonight? I promise I won't fart this time"

And THAT is why I continue to feed this child. She amuses me to no end.

I saw you tweet that out about the bath fart - kids are hilarious! My son's new year's resolution this year is to grow a moustache - he's 10..he said he's really gonna try, not sure how..

Roflmbo. See if she were much older I would so hook her up with my baby, but he is 13 and just as witty. As much as I love staying in bed in the morning I am going to be glad when they go back to school, tomorrow. Mama needs her peace and quiet. No bigger than you are they cannot be bad stretch marks. I consistently remind my children that I could have filmed the movie a River runs through it using the marks on my abdomen. Tiger my ass, more like tributaries.

My little girl is just a bit younger so I'm still laughing when she repeats the cuss words on the way home from Grammy's, no telling what shewill say when she sees me without a shirt, I'm certain it will make me jiggle!

Shine on girl, shine on!

She lied. The most fun thing to do in a bath is fart and try to catch the bubbles before the pop.

I've always heard that if you want to REALLY understand life, talk to a child!
