Another One For The Sheridan Files...

Every evening when the kids get home from school we go through the exact same routine; homework, dinner, dessert, dancing, bath time, story time, glass of wine for mommy time, and ending with my favorite... bedtime. Throw a wrench in our routine... also known as daddy's out of town ... and you've got a recipe for uncontrolled mayhem. Tonight was no different.

While giving the girls a bath, I found myself needing to use the toilet. Since I usually don't have a moment to even poop to myself as there's always a kid who needs me at that very moment, I figured that taking ten seconds to pee in front of them would be perfectly fine. However, unbeknownst to me at the time, they were both staring at my lady-parts, and when I stood up the two of them burst out laughing while Sheridan said, "Mommy, you have a hairy tush."

Awesome!

This kind of talk comes on the heels of some trouble Sheridan recently got in on the school bus. Apparently she was pulled aside and reprimanded for none other than ... flipping people the bird. She claimed she had no idea that it meant anything. She thought she was just being funny. Of course, it was Riley who ratted her out, as Sheridan was so scared to tell us anything about it.

When Matt heard this last week he went ballistic and immediately wanted to know where she learned to do such a thing.

Before he could get too angry at her, I quickly went over to him and tapped him on the shoulder.


*ahem*


"I'm quite sure I know where she learned it ...."


I'm so totally winning mother of the year.

Oh well, you can't win it EVERY year. ;)

We got a bus report for flipping the bird earlier this year. Glad to finally learn I can blame it on you.

Hmm apparently the gesture means 'I want to @#$% you' here- not as satisfying a road rage sign to use but still definately not one to be 'practising'! In NZ the 2 finger 'peace' sign backwards ie back of hand facing the recipient means the same thing as flipping the bird although we flip too (not very often though ;)

Amy looked at me on the toilet the other day and announced 'Mummy, your bum is fat. Big and fat.'

I mean, geez, thanks kid.

I'm biting my nails every time the in laws come to DC to visit hoping the four year old doesn't repeat "what the hell is that?" that he's said to me a few times.

J said the same thing to me when she was about the same age. :) She also said that she wanted to grow up and have a big tummy like me....which left me really thinking about how my body image affected hers...so at least you are better off in that category! :)
