How Sweet is That! (dripping in sarcasm)

So Bren is watching the Miss Universe Pageant with me...after all St. Martin was on there (though she didn't make it to the top 20).

So the bathing suit contest is going on and Bren says,

"Mom, I don't want you skinny, I like you... you know...the way you are...not inesquick looking."

(she learned about Anorexia recently so she meant it nicely...just couldn't say it LOL!) However, I am still wondering what "the way you are" means. LOL!

My Hubby is the Cutest Thing EVER!

No, this isn't a post about my kids....Shocking, I know, since this blog was created for them. However, they have been underperforming lately, which makes me happy and very very scared all at the same time. Could something big be building up?????

Anyway, back to my husband. So he and I have these authors that we LOVE. They write as a team and not only scare the living heck out of you, but then they give scientific fact on how it could actually happen IN REAL LIFE! Not cheesy horror, but real horror. Why do I torture myself? WHO KNOWS!

So I recently ordered their latest novel and had it shipped here. Hubby read it in one night...stayed up and couldn't put it down. So I am reading it last night and noticed that ever so often there are notes in the margin. Little love notes, or silly notes, notes that hinted to the ending and then a chapter later said "just kidding". I found myself wanting to turn the page to see if there was a new note, and kept reading until I found just "one more". LOL

So he is officially the cutest thing EVER today...he is just not like that perhaps he wants something??? *giggle*

Who is her mother????!!!!!

I hate to do another post so soon, but Jace completely EMBARRASSED me today!

We were asked by my husband's medical school to be interviewed on camera for a marketing campaign they are doing. The kids were to be with us. So we got all dressed up and practiced our good know the bit.

Well they wanted to interview the kids first, ask them all about life here on the island and what they like best. They asked each kid to say their name and spell it. This is how it went:

Bren: "My name is Bren B-R-E-N."
Mase: "My name is Mase M-A-S-E."
Jace: "My name is Jace....ummm.....A-S-S."

She's THREE! She doesn't know how to spell her name, but apparently she can spell ass!!

ROFLMBO!!!! They said they'd edit that out...after they got through wiping their tears of laughter.

A Testicle Post!

So Mase was standing there naked after a shower and said. "Mom, what are these hanging under my private?" (pulling his penis up to his ears so I can see under it)

Me, "Those are your testicles."

Him, "What's that?"

Me, "Well they are little balls inside a sac...and they are just under you penis."

Him, "Uh no, this is my private."

Me, "No your privates are the whole thing...that is your penis and those are your testicles."

Him, "But you don't have testicles, right Mom?"

Me (refraining from saying HELL YES I DO...I have more balls than your father sometimes!) "No honey, just you and your dad and other boys."

Poor, Poor, Momma D!

My mom is called Momma D by her grandchildren. She is really the BEST grandma ever...besides her mom who was my grandma and she is hard to beat!

Anyway, she has 16 grandkids and 10 great grandkids (give her take a couple) she is destined for moments like this:

One of her great grandaughters was staying the night with her and they were lying in bed watching a movie. Somehow they got on the subject of being old and my mom said, "Hey! Momma D's not old!"

Her ggd saidso simply and lovingly, "No, you're not old Momma D...but your neck is." My mom now puts anti-aging creams on her neck! LOL

It just reminds me of the times when I played with the loose skin on the back of my Mammaw's arms, or loved to jiggle her earlobes. I dread the day when something looks old on me and my grandkids point it out.

Jace is bad enough at pointing out my flaws NOW!
