In Just One Evening...

I had the following conversations with my sons.

A, The eldest: My breath stinks and my teeth feel like rocks.
Me: Why are you taking my toothpaste? You have three tubes in your bathroom.
A, The eldest: I need manly toothpaste mom.

Yeah, he's not eleven yet.

And then in the bath:

P, the small: Look at my pickles. (Grabbing his testicles)
Me: Your what?
P, the small: My pickles.
Me: Oh no. You know what those called. Those are your testicles.
P, the small: My teckles. This one's Oodie and this one's Chonk.

I fear for the women who will date my son.

J, the middle has yet to regale me with any of his wisdom, but the night is still young.

OMG. How hilarious. Talk about honesty (you AND him). I may never look at pickles the same way . . .

My boobs are Mildred and Unis, it's healthy to name your goodies, didn't you know? You're son's a friggin genius.

Absolutely Bananas said...

oh that is RICH!

Kim Moldofsky said...

LOL! Sounds a lot like my house (two boys).
Thanks for entering my backpack giveaway. Good luck!

PunditMom said...

I'll post a real comment when I stop laughing!

I hope to meet everyone BUT Oodie and Chonk this weekend :)

Beth said...

It's quite the education raising sons, isn't it?
And lots of laughs.

Leslie said...

Oh my goodness, this was hilarious. Oodie and Chonk. Too funny!

Mrs. Chicken said...

Oodie! *falling on floor, laughing*

I needed that. Whew.

You got any girls???? NO??? I have four boys and four girls.... you have not had to decide which girl has the bigger boobs eh? Or show her how to use a tampon... you be lucky!!! Mind you, Griffin did come up to me one day, thrust his hips out and say "show me ya balls"..... mind boggling stuff from a 5 yer old.... sad sad sad.

andi said...

But the question is, why do you have the manly toothpaste in your bathroom, Mamma?

Gotta love kids and their logic.

Oh, The Joys said...

Odie and Chonk are great names!

Lawyer Mama said...

Oodie and Chonk are somehow the perfect names!

~JJ! said...

"Pickles"! I love it.

Lisa said...

Pickles. That is so funny. What man hasn't named his penis or testicles?

QT said...

Reminds me of the time a co-workers husband taught their 3 yr old that when he got an erection it is called a "boner" and to go show mom - so now he runs down the hallway yelling "Mom, I got a boner!!"

Good times!

Slackermommy said...

I love it! You'll have to tell P's P's girlfriends about his teckles and their names.

OMSH said...

Oodie and Chonk?

I am DYING!

Oh my, that hurts ... stop it.
Laughing so hard.

Jennifer aka Binky Bitch said...

Why must they name their parts?!!! It sure is cute, though! Oodie and Chonk!

Ally said...

This is too funny. How exactly is a toothpaste manly, I wonder? Kind of an Old Spice flavor?

Ah, all of the things I have to look forward to. My little guy isn't old enough to name his testicles yet, but he already has a good time yanking during diaper changes.

Angela said...

My boyfriend names his too!

Not nearly as cute though...

Petite Mommy said...

My boys call them knuckles! LOL! Cute names.

TheAngelForever said...

LOL - Thank you so much for sharing those stories.

I can so see my oldest son doing this in the not so distant future. Heck he’s already had some funnies noticing things with his body. Just the other day while in the tub he said to us “Look it’s growing!” Ah, boys and their toys ;)

DangerDoll said...

HILARIOUS! I'll never look at another jar of pickles quite the same now!

Heather said...

Man toothpaste and pickles....all new ones on me!

LOL

Megan/ Velveteen Mind said...

I swear I read this post before right now but I don't remember the Oodie and Chonk bit. Good Lord, woman. Good luck with that one.

And yes, I have two boys, so good luck to me, too. My 3 year old did a run-by penis grabbing on my husband the other day and we could do nothing but look at each other with "this is just the beginning" looks.

JazzBrown said...

Great. Hysterical.

I wish I had read things like this BEFORE I prayed for boys!

goldennib said...

Kids are great. Very funny.

Elizabeth said...

That is hilarious!! His "pickles"!! My son Nathan got hit in the crotch with a ball and tried to say "genitals", but instead he yelled "oh, my gentlemens!" So now that is our family word for the crotch area, the gentlemens :)

Mamalicious said...

Nice!

Genevieve Choate said...

Laughing so hard I'm crying. Oodie and chonk indeed!

Amanda said...

Brilliant. My daughter calls her vagina her jewel...damn Disney Princesses and their brainwashing.
