Put A Ring On It

After a tumultuous weekend I've been enjoying downtime at home with Jeremiah and the kids. By downtime I mean sitting on me bum, laying in the sun next to the baby pool, working on various things that give me the opportunity to sit on me bum some more...etc...etc...

In stark contrast with my lethargy, my children have been energetic and entertaining.

Olivia was lying across my legs while we were lounging in the sun and was very taken with how smooth my legs are. She yelled across the yard to Max, "Maxine! Come feel Momma's legs...they're soooooo soft!"

Max ran over, felt my legs and looked thoroughly unimpressed.

"Hey Olivia! If you think that's soft, you should feel my butt!" Cascades of giggles and lots of butt shaking followed.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Speaking of Elijah and his underwear (or often the lack of it), I've recently taught him how to pee outside, a skill that enables more lethargy on my part.

I'm lying in the sun and he's in the baby pool and he says, "Momma! I pee in gwasssss!"

"Ok BUBBA! Yay! Go ahead. Go over by the tree." and then I lay my head back down.

I look up a few moments later to see Elijah chasing a tiny baby bunny around, his wee wee hanging out and a strong stream of pee coming from it.

"I pee on bunny MOMMA! I pee on bunny!!!!!!!"

The bunny escaped unharmed and was back for more the next day, maybe it finds Elijah as delightful as I do?

She is all business about that dancing, isn't she? She totally kicked those dance moves asses.

Peeing outside, it's a manly thing to do.

Cutest video, but I can't get over this strong pang of jealousy about the bunny in your yard. WTF? I want bunnies in my backyard. For peeing on and cuddling, of course.

Those girls have rhythm! They will appreciate this video when they are teens...
My son pees outside any chance he gets. My daughter too, actually. You're right, it's a laziness enabler.

Sam said...

Oh, I guess you've never had a pet bunny? If you look in the manual, it plainly states that they enjoy being peed upon.

i loved the video. clearly some good beyonce moves in there. my daughter loves to bust her moves on that one too.
and btw, i've had some pet bunnies, but never thought to pee on them. hmm... maybe my cats would enjoy it too.

Nice glimpse of a summer afternoon: pool, kids, dancing (GREAT dancing), bunny rabbits and pee. All we needed was a nice tall glass of lemonade. Oh, wait. Maybe not. ;)

God she's cute. I think she gets her dancing skills from me.

Kim said...

That is so weird. I do that same routine every time I hear Prince.

that might just be the greatest thing ever.

The video is adorable. And the pee story, extremely amusing.

That is so cute the peeing on the bunny thing.
