The Wild Rumpus

Parenting and family, served with a shot of vodka

EOTW: My Tail, Literally and Figuratively

Welcome to the second installment of Embarrassment of the Week.

It was actually a pretty good week in this regard, and I thought I may not have anything to post. But leave it to Sweet Pea, 2, to get it in there by deadline. Guess she takes after her journalist parents.

So, I was standing in the bathroom painting my nose black for Halloween. She walked in behind me and pulled on the tail I had just affixed to my outfit. Her review of this addition?  “Mommy, your tail is so small and your butt is so big!”

Then she giggled and ran out. She thinks the word butt is hilarious, thanks to her older brother.

To be fair, it’s not the smallest rump in the world. But I guess when you’re at eye level with such a thing, it must look enormous. Someday, I’ll have to clue Sweet Pea in to the infinite buttock wisdom of Sir Mix-A-Lot.

In the meantime, I think I’ll steer clear of the kids’ overflowing Halloween buckets. Just to be on the safe side.
