Going Commando

The Boy has taken to stripping off his Pull-ups in the mornings and putting his pjs back on until after breakfast. I joked about his "going commando" and then, of course, had to explain what that meant.

No big deal -- unless you have a gregarious, talkative child. We were sitting around yesterday afternoon and he piped up, "I told (insert name of cute little girl at preschool) that I like to go commando in the mornings." Me and my big mouth. Why did I teach him to speak?


Nothing quite as interesting to kids as sharing new words and phrases. Daughter OotFP (age two) once frog-marched out of a dirty Taco Bell declaiming, "GET ME OUTTA THIS HELL HOLE. GET ME OUTTA THIS HELL HOLE"

whenever my husband compliments my physical appearance (especially if it is in a way that only a husband should compliment), i always reply: "yeah, yeah - thats what all the boys down at the truck stop say".

it's a running joke. i don't know where it started - probably has to do with my discomfort having my physical appearance noticed. anyway, my eight year old evidently heard me say this one day and he asked my husband, "what is it that all the the boys at the truck stop say?"

my husband replied: "ask your mother".
