I love the third one...it's never too early to teach dinner etiquette!

Oh, and I think it may be acceptable to pee off the third floor deck if they can water your plants at the same time...multi-tasking!

I've been like a broken record myself lately - mostly with Z "Get your hands out of your pants!"

Who would even WANT to eat at the dinner table with no underwear on? I don't know about you, but I would be kind of chilly on our kitchen chairs.

As always, thanks for the insight into what life with my little boy will be like a few years down the road.

Do I HAVE to wear underwear at the dinner table? Really cramps my style....

I think I'm going to use the put your butt away thing....at work. I am SO tired of seeing crack. I see more crack on a daily basis than a proctologist!

No, I do not think your peepee is shaped like an ice cream cone.

I hope this gets said more often than once.

And underwear at the dinner table. Yes, I agree. Very important. :D

What is it with boys and poop talk? I say the same thing to my oldest..."if you want to talk like that go to the bathroom and do it!" I think stinky and poopy are his favorite words...

Blogger We 2 Bee's said...

LOL! That is so funny! We never think about the things we will have to say when you have boys! I find myself saying lots of those! "Leave your brother alone" ranks at the top! Thanks for the laugh!

My stepson refuses to wear underwear. I found them stuffed under his mattress last summer. I think I am going to ban him from swimming this year if he doesn't wear them!

And, therein, lies the reason I never wanted a boy baby!!

I don't think moms can understand boys at all! After all, all the big guys who have disgusting habits (too many to list)were once little boys with moms who tried to civilize the little guys but were spectacularly off the mark!!

April 13, 2010 at 11:51 AM

Boys. One time Otter had a friend over and I went outside to find them both peeing off our front porch! There was an old man walking by and he about crapped his pants.

Pants at dinner? Totally overrated!

And, hey, if they are peeing off the deck, then you don't have to worry about them peeing on the floor in your bathroom, right?

What's that, your hands are full? Sorry....couldn't resist.

Boys and their pee! My 2 year old just learned to make whirlies with his pee! Gasp!

This is great! I did a post similar to this quite a while ago.
I compiled a list after I wondered what the downstairs neighbour was thinking when he heard me YELL to my daughter, "Don't lick your brother's butt!!"

I can soo relate to "that's not your pointer finger"!
Ahh, kids! :P
