ABOUT ME

About me: I'm a 40-something mother to a pickle party of a family. My husband Chuck, our tween Junior, our 6-year-old Everett, our toddler Cam, and I live in a town in Connecticut I affectionately call Mulletville Lite (aka my childhood hometown). My friends call me Nutjob, and they're right. In my husband's spare time he dresses up as a Viking and chases ghosts (and I'm the nutjob?). I'm a freelance graphic designer and writer.

I suppose I could try to resell it as "bongo biceps"


The bongo butt game seemed like such innocent fun. I didn't mean for it to become a family pastime; I was just trying to kill time Friday night between Junior's after bath towel-down and Chuck's arrival with his pajamas.

Instead it was a weekend jamathon. After every shower Junior was eagerly awaiting me and Chuck so he could slap our asses and shriek, "Bongo butt! Bongo butt!"

Whereas Chuck shrieked, "Agh! Down boy!"

Whoever said regret is a chance to learn and grow has never experienced the sting of an overeager toddler's hand against his flesh. I take it back. I take it back!

I'm hoping by mid-week that the novelty wears off. Kind of like how the novelty of the words "poop" and "toot" might also wear off soon.

Yeah that's kind of how "Dancing Penis!" started in my house. I made a comment about how it looked like Boy Spawn's penis was dancing and now after every shower (even 3 months later) he runs through the house, shakes his junk at us and yells "Dancing Penis! Dancing Penis!". Sigh.

Hopefully you don't have company arriving any time soon....

Having been slapped on the ass by a three-year-old, I can honestly say, that is not something I'd want to include in our bedtime rituals. They are stronger than they look.

It's so nice to know I'm not alone...

This is too funny - Like mad woman we have dancing penis among other craziness. Can you imagine webcams in any house with a toddler?

Oh sweetheart..it shall never wear off. Good luck with that. Naked butt being chanted by my toddler hasn't gone away either...or the butt wiggling while he chants it!

Brandy said...

haha. the things we do to entertain our children.

Buggys said...

Hahaha! It's all fun and games until...

Lisa said...

Mmm yeah, still waiting for "poop" to get old. It's just not happening. At this rate, mine is never going to get a date to the prom. Then again, maybe she WILL...

those words rarely lose their novelty. nor do the bodily functions themselves. sorry.

We prefer to play "Flatulator!"

I'm dealing with the after-effects of the Swiffer commercial over here.

My 7 year old is singing..."who's that lady? Se-xy lady."

Thanks Swiffer.

Ahhh, it's like a Howard Stern movie I once saw ("Butt Bongo Fiesta" anyone?)

We reserve booty bongos for times with jammies on.

Good luck with the toot and poop thing...my 7 soon to be 8 year old still relishes in using these words.
