February 7 08

scene: last night…7:00pm. we are in the bathroom, ironing Emily’s hair. Josh is pretending to put on lipstick in his batman pajamas…so i guess it evens out. ha.

Josh: Mommy, Tyler’s cat has a rock in his wiener and so he has to pee out of his butt!

Ali: not sure it works that way, Bud. I’m pretty sure he still pees the normal way, but it hurts him.

Josh: (totally not caring one iota about my answer about poor Tyler’s kidney-stoned cat) Mommy, you have a hairy front private

Ali: yes dear (let the record show that Ali is wearing sweatpants. it’s only my own hair i dry in the nude. not in front of my kids…sickos.)

Josh: But only some of it is hairy.

Ali: yes dear

Emily: (giggle) it’s striped!

Ali: yes dear. thank you for sharing that

Josh: Mommy, you’re weird.

Emily: Josh, you are so dumb. all moms have hairy vaginas

Josh: i feel bad for Tyler’s cat. he has to pee out of his butt. *shrugs* (leaves room)Emily: *shrugs* (leaves room)

Ali: *shrugs*…

and then realizes that when she asked the question…”when do you stop undressing in front of your children?” she got her answer tonight.

(…but thanks, kids, for reminding me that i need to go see Argentina)

on a completely unrelated note…what do y’all think of this bedding??

  1. That is hysterical.

    My 21 month old keeps looking for everyone’s
    “pachina” including my father, nephew, and our male cats.

    P.S. Love the new layout.

  2. Hahaha!

    So wait, is “weird” better or worse than “scary”?

  3. That is the funniest thing I have heard in a long time Ali .. man your Josh is hysterical. Glad you have all these ‘moments’ written down to show him when he is older!
    I like the bedding .. those colors are in. Looks like it would mask dirt well (I’m thinking of myself, and our dog who insists on lying with us in the morning…)

  4. Love the bedding…I might stay away from the matching valance though. I did the matchy matchy set for our guest room but wasted a purchase on the valance because it was overkill.

    Comment by Steph on February 7, 2008
  5. Love the bedding. I agree with Steph to skip the valance though.
    I like the colour combo a lot!
    The conversation cracked me up. I always know with Matt when he says something like that to me it will most likely be repeated at daycare for all to hear.

  6. I have been wondering about that exact question lately. My 6 year old looks at me kinda funny when I get out of the shower and I don’t find it as amusing as I did when he was 3 :).
    I like the colours on that bedding.

  7. My son keeps wondering where my penis is. I tell him I’ve never had one and he says to me “sure you did mommy, where’d you hide it”?

    Another one for you: The other day while getting dressed (yes, I had no shirt on) he asks me what those things are on my tummy. Let’s just say my working breasts hang a little low at times…

    I took a bath with my son the other day (he is 1) and I was wondering when I am going to have to stop doing that…..

  11. I’m guilty sometimes of the Mommy nudity thing, but it’s a small apartment and I don’t always remember to shut the bathroom door. I figure when they get disgusted enough, they’ll stop asking me what’s for dinner while I’m otherwise occupied. And naked.

    fringes’s last blog post..One good wash deserves another…

    Comment by fringes on February 7, 2008
  12. LOL The fun never stops does it? My son had a total fit last week when I refused to go “cross the streams” with him when he had to pee. (I have my husband to thank for that one!) He just can’t understand why I refuse to pee standing up.

    Love the bedding. One of my favorite color combos right now. And I agree, skip the valance. But I’m not picturing you as the matchy valance type to begin with, so I doubt we needed to tell you that.

  13. OMG, that is hilarious!
    I love that bedding.
    I just got new bedding for our bed too! I have to take a photo to share with everyone 🙂

    And the answer to “When to stop dressing in front of your kids?” always appears to be “Several weeks ago.”

  19. Oliver and I took a shower the other day and it occurred to me that I won’t be able to do that with him for too much longer.

    The bedding…sorry, it’s NMS.

  20. Awkward story! Cute bedding! 😛

  21. I love the bedding! My b/f would never let me get sheets that color though…i think it’s a trying to look manly thing.

  22. So you’ve got a landing strip huh Ali? That’s hot.

  24. I love when people ask my opinion! Actually, I love giving it even when nobody even asks for it.

    But now that you’ve asked about the bedding… I like it, but it’s a bit too much the way it’s displayed. There’s just too much of the flower, even for me and I live in pink flowery universe. Picture it like this… I would definately make napkins out of the window vallance thingy and not use it. I’d just get a dark brown one instead. I’d also not use the second layer of flowered pillow shams – I’d either just not use them or get another set in just the solid blue color. And finally, I’d get rid of the small flowerey pillow at the front and that sausage roll thing would have to do to. THEN the whole look would be girly enough for me and not overly faggy for Steve cus the way it is wouldn’t fly with him either.

    Phew! I need a smoke now.

  25. I’ve wondered myself when to stop undressing in front of the kids…I guess they’ll probably answer that for me!

    As for the bedding, I love it. In fact, I’d like to know where it’s from and get it for my new bedroom.

  26. My 9 year old still occasionally sees me naked – it’s not a big deal sort of thing. My 2 1/2 year old is obsessed with my boobs and wonders when hers will be that big.

    Gotta love the things kids say! Especially loved the peeing out of the cat’s butt. Mainly because I think we’ve had a similar conversation in this house.

    I love the bedding! I am not a huge fan of useless pillows, but the bedding in general is very nice. (John Mayer in the Borat swimsuit brought that out.)

    Comment by Michele on February 7, 2008
  27. Oooh,as I do not have children… gotta stay away from that first one. But the bedding? LOVE it… jsut, like Emelita said, my other half would NEVER let me get away with something that girly!

    Comment by Mari on February 7, 2008
  28. I have always liked pale blue and rich brown as a colour combo…

    Leaf, probably…’s last blog post..I’m not even sorry.

  29. I’m gonna have to go in the minority here. I don’t like the bedding. I love brown and I love blue, but for some reason, I’m not feeling it from this set.

    Where is it from?

    I would whore myself out for this set though – http://www.potterybarn.com/products/p10022/index.cfm?pkey=cbabdvtptn

    Or this one, but only because toile gets me hot! http://www.potterybarn.com/products/p7634/index.cfm?pkey=cbabdvtall

  30. today, the two boys i work with asked what the “puff things coming out of” me were. (my boobs.) i said they should ask their mom, only because it’s too soon for me to make those sorts of judgment calls on my own. once i know what the parents want me to do in those situations, i’ll be a little more comfortable.

  33. I love the bedding, I’ve been slowly changing my bedroom to blue and brown, though I prefer a brighter blue. I agree with those that said not to overboad and buy the valance.
    Also, your kids? HiLARious!

  36. You definitely stop undressing in front of your kids when they run for cover at the sight of you in your underwear. I am constantly saying, “If you don’t want to see me naked, stop barging into my room!!!”

    As for the bedding…it’s pretty, but I fear that it is somewhat trendy. So if you don’t mind having it for a while and then feeling like it looks like those big shoulder pads from the 80’s, that’s cool. If you want something for the long haul, I would choose something more classic. You wanted honesty, right?

  38. Yes, I am very very (very) behind on blog reading. I normally refrain from embarrassing myself by commenting on two-week old blog posts, but this time I just have to. At least it was your own kids! When I was all of 15 & babysitting my regular babysitting gig, the 5-year-old girl burst in on me while I was in the bathroom. (Yes, I realize moms are used to this. 15-year-old babysitters though? Not so much.) At which point she announced: “My mom has more hair on her privates than you do. Why do grown up women have hair there anyway?” I told her to ask her mother. At 15, you have no answers for that. You pretty much just want to crawl in a hole.
