Victoria . . . I'm Pretty Sure She Farts Too

"Hey! Nice butt!"

Amused, I turned around slowly, faced my son in the mall corridor, and blushed.  "Ummmm, thanks Ethan? That makes mom feel good."  I was a bit uncomfortable with the compliment, but I was also flattered. I reflected that at age 37 I had just completed a half marathon, and now my kid recognized that I had a nice butt.

I seriously rocked.


My arm, however,  was quickly broken while I patted myself on the back when Ethan explained, "Oh mom!  Not your butt!  That butt!" And with that, he pointed to the 12 foot poster in the Victoria's Secret store window.  It showed a faceless model leaning over a car showing off her lacy drawers. She did, in fact, have a nice butt.  A I-have-never-had-three-kids-and-ate-my-weight-in-chips-ahoy-cookies butt.


My mood suddenly tanked until Ethan said, "Why would anyone take a picture of a butt?  Butts are gross!  I mean . . .they're butts."  Then he paused and said slowly for emphasis, "Farts.come.out.of.them."

So, I may not have a Victoria's Secret model's butt, but I do have a 7 year old little boy that makes me laugh.

And, Ethan?

He seriously rocks.



  1. Why are boys so obsessed with farting? LOL!

  2. He's dead right. Butts are kind of gross when you think about them. Right on, Ethan! Stay away from female butts for as long as possible!

  3. I love it! A butt is a butt doesn't matter what it is wrapped in or how perfectly formed it is - the function is still the same. I can't wait until you read your son this post at his high school graduation party- now that will be priceless. Oh wait maybe I am the only one who is compiling a catolog of my child's most embarressing(sp) moments to spill at some of their most important milestones!

  4. Victoria must fart ... otherwise life just isn't fair. Nothing like a young boy to bring you down to size, huh? And I personally think (sight unseen) your butt looks pretty good!!!

  5. Hahaha this is a great one. I have never thought of it that way. Wait about ten years and see if he changes his mind! :)

  6. That is hilarious! You say my kid is full of funny but I think yours could give him a run for his money. )

  7. You are right, your son rocks! What a fun blog. I think I need to be a Follower. Thanks for visiting me on my SITS day.


I love, love, love to read your comments!
