In Washington there are no specific laws stipulating the age at which a child can be left home alone...I think I need to take advantage of that more often...wow you can really put a lot in a title.

Why do I take my kids out of the house? You would think I’ve learned my lesson by now.


Like the time I was checking out at Wal-Mart and my 5 year old son starts singing some song he heard on someone else’s radio, cause I only play soft christen music in my car.

Sam: “Honeys got a booty like POW POW POW … Honeys got some boobies like WOW oh WOW! Oh oh ohohoh oh my gosh”

This complete with dance moves and booty shaken.

Oh my gosh is right, but I guess people have come to expect this kind of behavior from kids in Wal-Mart. Super

I should have never taken that kid out in public again. But NOOOOO I have a compulsive need for embarrassment and dirty looks from strangers.

As written in the Bible, if a child is taken into a store, he has to go to the bathroom. This need to pee must happen (according to Jon 24:7) at the furthest possible point from the restrooms and with great urgency. If I’m not mistaken (and of course I am) it reads, “He who has no understanding of a Child’s self-control is foolish and reckless – that is his folly and his shame.”

So today while in the Garden center at Lowes Sammy informs me and the rest of the planet that he has to GO NOW. And where is the Restroom at Lowes, that’s right, on the other side of Lumber clear across the great vast.

Here is where the folly and shame come in. Seems it’s a busy day at the Ladies room, as we wait for a stall to empty Sam explains to me that he is a boy and should use boy’s bathroom, then goes into why he is a boy.

Sam: because I have a dink and tenders…girls don’t have dinks or tenders.

Just super.

When a stall opens up I shoo Sam inside.

Sam: Mom I just got some pee on my shirt...why does it stinks so bad in here.

Super, now I’m trying not to laugh.

Sam: (singing) It’s 3am I’m a little drunk and I need you now…(huge fart)...Holy cow that was a big one!  Mom did you hear that?  Mom...mom...

Dirty look from strange lady with silly glasses

Me: Wash your hands and let’s go.

Sam: Why do I have to wash my hands, I never wash them at home.

Super Dee Duper.

HHHHAAAAAAAA! MICHELLEEEEE!!!!!

I can't handle it anymore - you make my belly hurt!!!! (Wait - that whole visual is not pretty - sorry! What I mean to say, is that you make me laugh so hard, my stomach hurts. How's that? Any better?) Thank you for my daily dose of humor!!!

Awesome...it always nice and loud and echo-y in there too so that no one could possibly not hear them!

Sadly, I found myself singing along to the words of Oh My Gosh. I know the song because of my son.

Here's the good news: in about 5 years, you'll be thankful for the boys. Because teenage girls will do their very best to kill you or drive you insane.
