My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Thesaurus Thursday

aahhh, it's Thursday again.

Subvet took the boys to school and he's not back yet. Baby girl's asleep..the house is MINE ALL MINE!!!

I wanted to share a funny story from last weekend.

OK, you know we're having neckedness issues with Gator-boy. Real life clothing malfunctions! Well so far they have been curbed by wearing zipper jammies backwards during nap and bed times. He has 3 sets of these jammies, 2 are 4T and 1 is 5T because I just used what I already had from Sonshine's old clothes.

Well, this weekend he was in the 5T set. I get him up from bed one morning, jammies are on, all is well. I get his breakfast then we go in the bathroom for their baths.

I unzip the jammies and see


I guess the 5Ts were baggy enough for this Houdinni child of mine to reach up and get that dad-gum diaper off through the legs.

Obviously those jammies hit the trash can quickly.

This child never ceases to amaze me, and I don't think that will end any time soon!

OK, words are



I can't wait to see what funny definitions you come up with for those!!

madtom--what my daughter's cat is when he sees the cat carrier.

poil--the bits of potting soil that fall outside the flowerpot when trying to fill it. 8^)

So, I guess everyone at the House of Sub is feeling better???

I'm just curious how many times duct tape has come up in conversations recently at your house regarding a certain boy's nekkid habits. ;D

Madtom - Male equivalent to the female wallflower.

Usage: Dateless, once again Lester resigned himself to being the only madtom at the prom, never dancing a step.

Poil - The residue left at the bottom of the deep fryer after cooking.

Usage: After 6 months of use, the poil at the bottom of the deep fryer was a bit raunchy.

Madtom- Like the word metrosexual...this word is a progressive female.Not a Madam anymore but a Madtom.

"The Madtom wants to check her uzzie and her nine, at the counter."

Poil- after spending 1.5 years in Louisiana I am confident of this words meaning. It is pronounced pole(as is telephone pole)
The oi in Louisiana jargon is pronounced oooo.Long o. Oil is Ole.

It took us months to learn this little secret. "Do ya need ya ole
cheked???" They wanted to check our oil!!

Good luck with the nudist camp that you are hosting!

A little junior Houdini for sure! lol I have a niece by marriage who's in her 30's now...when she was around 3, she wouldn't keep her clothes on, just like your son. Thankfully it was just a phase! lol

madtom: a male cat that is very very very angry!

poil: it's the southern way of saying "pail".

You said "cool idea" about the Halloween Swap...does that mean you want to join too or you were just remarking?? Just want to make sure! lol xox

maybe gator boy should have a name change. where did gator boy come from, anyway?

so there was a diaper in his pj's but not on his little body? that would take some work. he's a smart one, yes he is.

MightyMom said...

Di, house of Sub is better thanks. I seem to be the last holdout but I'm improving. I asked Subvet how many times we'd mentioned duct tape...he said "COUNTLESS!!"

Jen, I represent that Lousiana comment!! Where were you?

Pea, ummm I was non-committal. I think I'll have to pass on this one, I catch the next swap you do!

Diana, oh no, it was much worse than that. The diaper was nowhere to be found. I finally discovered it under the matress that was half off his bed. He'd been necked all morning apparently.

I answered the origins of his name in a new post.
