Perhaps I need to duct tape the child's mouth shut in public...

Jack & I were at Wal-Mart for over an hour today at 5pm, when I'm pretty sure the store is the most packed.  I hate Wal-Mart.  I rarely go there.  It's overcrowded & hot.  Really, really hot.  But, I had to get our tires changed because, once again, I got a flat tire while John was out of town.  Bummer.

Anyway, Jack & I were hanging out in the toys & a woman with an abnormally large bottom came walking by.  If you took the average ample American bottom and multiplied it by 10, you might come close to what we were looking at.

And then it happened.  The inappropriate comment from my son.

"Mama!  That lady has a big bootie!  Mama!  Mama!  Look!  I like that big bootie!!"

This was of course said at the top of his lungs while pointing.  He was thrilled at her bootie & pointed it out to everyone within hearing distance.  I didn't know what to do, so I just picked him up & walked away, but I couldn't stop giggling myself...

Total Awesomeness. Your sons first booty call. "I like that big bootie!" He's so kind in a weird way.

LOL, of course it's funny to us outsiders but yes, I do dread these moments that will await us one day in the near future! Warn Jack that "Auntie Kel" has some baby got back...especially now! :) He can point it out though and I'll still love him!!

Oh yes - one of my proudest moments was when Sam screamed out "Mom! That lady in the wheelchair is going to run over us!"

P.S. Did you take the Wal-Mart Bingo I sent you??

Keli- don't worry. you don't have anything on this lady. jack will not call you out!

julie- i didn't have the bingo card, but i would have filled the whole board in about 2 seconds!

That is so hilariously funny . . . b/c it wasn't my kid! : ) We've had those moments . . . it's really nice when the kid is young enough that no one (except me) can understand what they're saying. Unfortunately, that doesn't last long!!

What about when Jack yells out "I want dreadlocks!" just as the local rastafarian kid walks by our front yard.

Andi said...

yes, but somehow that doesn't seem so bad. i think the kid really would like dread locks. and, apparently, a big bootie of his own.
