There are other times that are just as tough. Like when your kids do or say something that you know as the parent you shouldn't find funny but you do anyways.
Case in point today.
When I picked up dash-1 from school I saw the other kids coming out before him with little brown bears they had made when they did a bear unit. I heard the other kids telling their parents what they had named their bears, one little girl called her's goldilocks, most everyone had a normal name.
And then comes dash 1.
I asked him as we walked to the car what his bears name was....
Meet mr. poopy
Yes that's right. mr. poopy.
I did my parental thing and said "Well I don't know if that's an appropriate name, why don't we call him something else."
"Because mom, he looks like poo,. See he's brown and lumpy."
And in case your wondering he only has one voice and its an outside voice so all the parents heard us and a few turned around laughing.
Again I did the whole necessary, that's not appropriate, blah blah, but to be honest, the kid is on to something and I seem to be wrong. It does kinda look like poop and mr. poopy does seem pretty darn appropriate.
Just cause I'm a mom doesn't mean I've lost my sense of humor.
And its not like he named him mr. sh*thead or something. Now that would have been inappropriate.
