Shut Yo' Mouth Saturday

(Okay, some of the stuff IS a little weird)

1.All 3 of my kids are Obsessed With Basically Anything White And Creamy They Can Put In Their Mouth. Give 'Em A Bowl (and sometimes a straw) And You Can Make Them Do Anything You Want.....

Ranch Dressing
Sour Cream
Yogurt (of any kind)
Ice Cream
Cool Whip

2. We Use Code Words And Foreign Languages In Our House To Make Me Look Like A Better Mom:

Gum = We Say This To Runs With Scissors When We Catch Him Biting His Nails.

Betty = When Something Is Half Pretty and Half Beautiful It's SOOO BETTY

Zubra = Penis in Arabic. When RWS Was Little, He Had an Obsession With Talking About His. I Taught Him How To Say It In Arabic, So He Would Stop Embarrassing Me In Public

And Finally....

Broccoli = I'm Teaching Hootie To Call FRENCH FRIES, Broccoli.

Watch Out People.....I'm a Freakin' Genius!

So When He Turns 2 And We're Out In Public And He Starts Screaming
Everyone Will Think I'm THE BEST MOM!!!

LOL! I should totally steal - er, adopt - this idea, especially about the penis. My four-year-old tosses it around in public (um, the word, not the appendage) like it's nothing.

Thank you so much for the award!!! I'm honored! You made my entire weekend. :)

Love this broccoli trick. Right now we have him calling my wine "mommys juice" and he thinks Daddy's bloody mary last sunday brunch was "green bean juice." Will employ your tactics on our 2 year old promptly. LOL.

Hilarious ... Zubra!! My son has had an obsession with the name of girl private parts. Little boys!!!

I might have told you before, but I LOVE your blog design! Too fun. Love your sense of humor, too!

You are a riot! I love the whole idea of broccoli. And you can teach them to call stuff anything in the world. Just brilliant.

Funny broccoli story.

My daughter's first taste of broccoli was at my cousin's wedding (she was three). Being the awesome parents we are, we just wanted to see her reaction when we gave it to her (figured she'd distort her face in some cute manner). She LOVED it! To get her to calm down, we actually had to threaten her with taking away the broccoli. That'll teach us.
