Only if you have boys...

...do you know how funny it is to fart in the fan aisle at Wal-Mart.

...are you asked about how a different animal poops every day.

...do you know the difference between a "triple" and a "home run" when a ball is hit off a tee into an imaginary stadium.

...will you see someone truly excited to pee outdoors. (And make up excuses to do so.)

...do you understand how important it is to retain control over juuuust how far down (or up) your window is set in the car.

...do you see how easily this will translate into controlling the remote in later years.

...can your heart be melted by sticky kisses and someone telling you, "Mom, I love you more than baseball!"

Loving boys for who they are? Works for me!


I need to ask for your help. My quest for total world domination starts with winning the Nickelodeon Parent's Pick award for best Milwaukee blog. Would you click over and vote for me, please? Many thanks!

oh, the farting in the fan aisle just cracked me up. My son and I just had this experience at the local Zellers (similar to a Wal Mart). We both farted so loud that my daughter stomped away and pretended she didn't know us. We were laughing so hard that i almost peed my pants. Which is pretty easy to do when you've had four kids!
Thanks for the chuckle
Have a great day!

More than baseball? Now THAT'S a LOT!

I gotta tell ya -- Standing in the Checkout Line at Walmart. It's hot in the store because the air conditioner is broken. Big floor fans are blowing air towards the checkout registers. From behind us. SWMBO is standing in front of the cart - #2 Son and I are standing behind it. All of a sudden ... SWMBO turns around and gives both of us a dirty look. Simultaneously, #2 and I point over our shoulders and say "It was her!". I turn to look and the lady behind us is slowly shaking her head "No." and pointing her finger at us.

Fink.

Oh you totally said it--farting never ever goes out of style when you're a boy.

How about audibly farting (audible that other people in nearby stores probably heard) in the Famous Footwear...and making hte high-pitched announcement "I TOOTED!!!"

Or when your five year old tells you he wants to marry you.

Boys are such special creatures. That's how my 16yo tells me 'good morning'... he farts in my general direction. Gotta luv 'em

Oh Colleen, how I have missed you so!!!

My boys still talk about the baby elephant at the National Zoo that ate it's Mom's poop -- you know we went a couple years ago to see the new baby Panda and they're were all like "hey, this elephant was eating poo!" Uh-huh! So boys!
