It Builds Character

4 going on 14

The other night, I took the girls to swimming lessons. Lauren goes from 6-6:30 and Catherine's lessons are from 6:35-7:20. As Lauren and I were sitting in the bleachers, watching Catherine swim, Lauren was playing with my cell phone. She likes to press all the numbers, and she has figured out which button to push to activate the camera. She was having a good time taking pictures of the pool, her feet, my purse, my sweater, basically anything she saw. Then she started taking pictures of me, but she was standing right next to me, so they were all VERY close up. She took one of my nose that was so close up, that it was only my nostril.

"Nice," I said.

She looked at it and said, "This one is SO going on the Internet!"

Innocent cartoons

I took the kids swimming tonight, then we swung through the drive-thru at the local Wendy's for a frosty. As we were sitting at the dining room table eating the frosties, Catherine called Lauren Boo Boo. (Lauren's nickname is Boo.) I said something like, "Who do you think you are, Yogi Bear?" Given today's crappy cartoons, Catherine had no idea what I was talking about. I went over to my laptop on the couch and googled "Yogi Bear." A couple of pictures showed up, so I called Catherine over to look at them and show her who I was talking about.

A couple entries down on the google page, there was a link to a You Tube video that said "Yogi Bear theme song-real funny." So I clicked on the link and all 3 kids and I watched it. Now YOU watch it, and guess at what point I scrambled for the mouse to shut it off. Watch.

If you guessed that I shut it off when it started talking about Suzy shaving her pubic hair, you would be correct. I probably should have shut it off during the part about the whips and chains, but I didn't. After I shut if off, Catherine asked me, "What's public hair?"

All three of them were absolutely dying laughing, knowing they had just seen something they shouldn't have. At that point, there was nothing I could do but laugh along with them. Note to self: never watch anything on You Tube with the kids without viewing it myself first.

The dog needs to get out more

Tonight, she was barking at the popcorn popping in the microwave.
