Goofy Monday: Chickens and butts, but no chicken butts

It’s another edition of Goofy Monday and this one is not R-rated like last week’s edition, but I think I still need to stick a PG-13 rating to it. What can I say, I live with two boys and I have a feeling it’s only going to get worse. Or better, depending if I’m on the receiving end.

Smells like…
Son #2 (hugging me goodnight): “Mama, you smell good! You smell like… chicken!”
I don’t think I’ve ever heard a guy say this to me, but from coming from my little man, I’ll take it as a compliment!

Tastes like…
Whenever I take my youngest to Souplantation for lunch, he likes to suck jello with a straw and extract “caterpillars” as a result (see below). Then he eats his caterpillar creations and comments on the taste:
“Mmmmmm, tastes like chicken!”
I’m starting to think I’m either smelling like cherry jello, or the Souplantation jello really tastes like chicken. I’m not sure which one to root for…

Butt crack
My kids like to play the Twister game. I can’t blame them, it’s a lot of fun, but I prefer to be the one turning the spinner and announcing the new positions because, well, my body doesn’t twist much. Once in a while though, I’ll take on the challenge and try to beat my kids at the game. And so I did a few days ago. As I was keeping up with the spinner and twisting more and more, this is what I kept hearing:
Son #2: “Mama, I can see your butt!”
Variant: “Mama, I see your butt crack!”
Note to self: don’t wear Old Navy low-rise jeans when playing Twister to avoid looking like a plumber crouching under the kitchen sink.

Look, I even have visual proof of our game. This is me as I started the game, and before my pants started coming down little by little with every twist. Notice how my son kindly cropped my upper body and face out of the frame when taking the picture with my cell phone. He may tell it like it is but he’s also a kind photographer.

I like big butts
Son#2: “Mama, you have a big butt!” (while slapping me on the butt)
Honestly, I don’t think I have a big butt as I’m far from being overweight, but I guess it may look big if your little face is at my butt level.

Have your children ever humiliated complimented your behind?
