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.

"Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass...
It's about learning how to dance in the rain."

Your mind is the garden, your
thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

Barking Spiders

So, true confessions here at MightyMom's place today!

Do you have barking spiders at your house?

I do....big ones!!

I refuse to let Subvet teach our kids the "pull my finger trick"...just flat put my foot down way back when I was first pregnant...for the first time.

Unbeknownst to me there are a whole host of ways to make flatulence fun.

Now that the hub-bub of "Good Rip, Daddy, Good Rip" has subsided, old Subvet has moved on to the next level of entertainment.

He will let er rip....then start stamping his feet saying...."wow, did you see that big old spider?? Did you hear it bark???"

As if blowing bubbles in the bath tub and running to put ghost poop in the potty weren't enough....I am now under siege by a gang of barking spiders.

This girl better grow up fast...I need reinforcements!

Hmm we seem to have tree frogs, or an elephant under the chair....

I have lost the battle and the reinforcements will still*look* for the tree not really on my team, eh?

MightyMom said...

oh come on!! don't tell me that! I need help here or will never be able to take these kids out in public!!!

jennifer said...

Public...I pretend that my crew is someone else's! No kidding, they do learn some control....eventually.

But the family audience truly cheers them my chagrin.

MightyMom said...

oh, by the way folks, just so you know...ghost poop ECHOS in the potty!!!

My Dad used to step or sit on frogs. ;o)

Thanks for the birthday wishes. I was gone all day yesterday and today. Just got home an hour or so ago. I'm TARD so I think I'm going to wait until tomorrow evening to post. Got another full day planned tomorrow....

Love and hugs,

Uh, sorry MightyMom. Fart humor is some of my favorite. Just pour a cup of Earl Grey tea in my favorite teacup, slice me a piece of homemade pumpkin bread, and let the fart jokes commence! You can't be well-mannered all the time!
You know, this policy of mine WILL come back to bite me sometime in the future, and I'm sure I'll share the details with you.

We graduated years back from "Barkin Spiders" and "Mouse burps" to "Hey...did somebody step on a duck?"

This is where having a daughter only at home is a true blessing - flatulence never comes up as a topic of conversation or humor!

Unfortunately, it still seems to be something at work that people like to bring up from time to time so I guess that means guys never ever grow up, do they??
