Starting Early

At the end of each work day I hang out at The Mayor and Rooster's daycare for a little while.

Sudden transitions are not popular with The Mayor.

We take our time.

The other day I waited for him as he wrapped up the "Mr. Potato head has 4,000 sets of teeth" activity he invented.

I absent-mindedly watched The Rooster smash graham crackers on the play table. (Is that wrong of me?)

Other mom's were arriving to pick up their kids.

Jack's blonde and athletic mom arrived fresh from a jog wearing lycra running tights.

The Mayor dropped Mr. Potato Head (and all his teeth) on the floor, ran to her, smacked her on the ass and yelled,

"Nice legs!!"

Early womanizing. The joys.

Proud Parent Moment #256!
Men are men no matter what the age, we're pigs all!
Way to go Mayor! Did 'ya get her number?

Kim said...

perhaps The Mayor is watching K too much?! ;)

...a friend of mine has a son who for quite a while would go around slapping his mom (and occasionally me) on the butt...because that's what mom's boyfriend did. the joys!

Kevin Charnas said...

I don't think that potatoes and "Dana" should meet.

Augs Casa said...

No way, did he really slap her on the butt!! I can't wait for my boys to do that when they get into school. Heck I have them both fixing their hair when I tell them there's a pretty girl. I also make it a comment practice when my boys are playing around cute girls, to tell the mom or parents there, that he will soon ask for their daughters number.

Nancy said...

Too funny, kids ... they seem copy their parents ... The Mayor must have heard/seen that from K which makes it a compliment to your legs *smiles*

SciFi Dad said...

I with Kevin on the potato/Dana avoidance thingy

anna said...

Ah, boys. They always let you know exactly how they feel.

Cece said...

And where did he pick THAT up from, hmmmm??? lol

Patience said...

Isn't that sweet and charming?!? He simply must learn to speak with a romantic accent!

Mel said...

Just so that you feel better, because it's not always little boys that do that, I have to share an "I still cringe" memory from when I was about four.
My older brother took me to church with him. There were two very cute boys in my brother's teen youth group; I spent a great deal of time running up behind one or the other of them, slapping them on the ass, going "Woo-WOO!" and running off again.
I wasn't allowed to go to church with my brother again for about a year.

slouching mom said...

I love it; this is so funny! There's a little boy at Jack's preschool who is having a love affair with me (and believe me, it's not because I can squeeze my body into anything made of Lycra), and when I pick Jack up at noon, this boy runs over to me, hugs me, grabs my hand... This all makes me a wee bit uncomfortable, but I don't stop it because he's only four. I don't want to scare him away from expressing emotion, because too many boys are taught to repress it.

Only Jack is bitterly jealous and nearly took W.'s head off after W. ran up to me on Friday and said, "Hi, Mommy!"

Liam's Mom - Gina said...

That is SO funny! I guess Liam will never learn that because his dad doesn't slap his mom's dana like ever! :(

DraMa said...

HA HA HA HA!

That is hilarious! You go boy!

My hubs would be proud.

And I have to tell you (can't find an email addy for you)... I see you EVERYWHERE! You are one popular woman and so funny. I just haven't commented till now... you get enough comments and don't need another dummy like me adding to the mix.

Anyway, I love your blog and figured I should finally say hello, since you are everywhere and all.

Karly said...

Ohmigod. I bet daddy was so proud! I wonder if that mommy has a blog...you know there would be a story about The Mayor on there!

Paige said...

Just when I thought Avery would be a menace to the opposite sex, you tell me this...

Now I don't feel so alone.

Janet a.k.a. "Wonder Mom" said...

He's an ass man. Gotta love it.

Ryan said...

I could only dream of having a son like that...

Iris said...

I am more than just a little concerned that Mr Potatoe Head is acquainted with Dana......

Blog Antagonist said...

LOL! My oldest child, now 8, is very erm...appreciative of women as well. The other day one of the little girls next door confided to Husband that Diminutive One asks them to play husband and wife, and then does "naughty" things. I was horrified. Turns out the "naughty" things are just hugs and kisses. WHEW.

Jill said...

Too funny! Boys never let you down, do they?

Multi-tasking Mommy said...

VERY cute potato head picutre!!!

We are giving a potato head bucket to the bunny for her 2nd bday, cannot wait! Or can I? Oh, the pieces!!!

Tabba said...

Great googly-moogly. You and The Mayor......dear God....WATCH OUT. What a dynamic comedy duo.

Kendra said...

You should be so proud of your manly little guy. That is so cute. Proud mommy moment. LOL!

Mom on Coffee said...

Oh, to be the mom of a boy...

MommyWithAttitude said...

Hilarious -- it really is nature, not nurture, unfortunately!

Lisa Fine Goldstein/Kelly Kelly said...

Woo hoo! Too cute. And I agree, it was a compliment to your legs b/c he must have heard K say that to you.

Lisa

Penny said...

I LOVE THIS! My brother did something similar when he was young. Walking behind a prostitute, he asked my mom if she had a 'nice ass'.

What do you do.

lol!

mad muthas said...

he'll go far, that boy! (his father must be soooo proud)

Chrissy said...

I love it! It gives me something to look forward...

Robin said...

Nice. Very nice. I'm sure she took it as a compliment.

Speaking as one who has worked with young children, most of them don't recognize that part of your body as any different from the rest. The first time a child tried to get my attention by poking my bottom - yikes! You get used to it.

Abbynormal said...

I would only hope that he liked my legs.

PS I'm working on that uniform.

Two Kids and a Husband said...

OH MY GOSH that is the funniest thing I have heard in a long long time.... Kids are GREAT that way arn't they.... Now admit it ... you wanted to smack her ass too....didn't you???

Mona said...

Soon he'll be going up to Dora the Explorer saying, "How you doin'?"

Woman with kids said...

OMG, that's hysterical. Boy 1 would be so jealous... "But he gets to play with the hot woman's butt..."

Belle said...

Haha, that is SO hilarious! What did the mom do?

Groovy Lady said...

Hahaha!

Sounds like he is progressing along right on schedule!

flutter said...

oh.my.god.

Did you just about pee your pants?

Dan said...

Good God in Heaven! The Mayor is me many, many, many ... many, many years ago.

No! The Mayor is me today.

What a great kid!

Jenny said...

Could be worse. He could have called her a fat-ass.

Terri said...

*chuckle chuckle*

very cute!

Manic Mom said...

Good thing he didn't slap her on the ass and say, NICE ASS!

ANd how does one 'arrive fresh' from a jog? I'd like to know!

Sorry, I no like her, the one who can be fresh after a jog! LOL.

Garrett said...

The Mayor and the rooster is what I call my balls.

Mrs. Chicken said...

Dude. Lock him up.

The Poo is already kissing boys and making them cry.

We should introduce the two of them!

amyerj said...

My daughter once advised a co-worker that her "headlights" were on. Jo was 8 or so, I was mortified or so.

Sound about right? Don't even ask me how she knew that term. I lost control around 8 or so.

King Isepik said...

What I wouldn't have given to have been a fly on the wall at the time. :)

jen said...

he's well on his way, sister.

a job well done.

Terri said...

I was thinking...

What did you do?? or say???

mamatulip said...

L. O. L.

That's hysterical. The pride must be seeping from you.

Domestic Slackstress said...

My eldest son said the same thing when he was two to my ob/gyn at one of my preggers appts. He noticed her glossy looking panty hose and skirt, both of which he'd never seen the likes of before -- mostly only my stubbled peppered legs sneaking out from a bathrobe. He pinched a section of panty hose between his curious fingers, let is smack back like an elastic band. Schwip! Finally, he slapped her on her thigh and said, "Nice legs, Dr. Seuss." All doctors were Dr. Seuss until he was three. I was mortified but not for long. The doctor said, "Hold on. I gotta' go tell my staff about this." She went down the hallway with a huge smile, then I heard a burst of laughter from the office and she came back in still laughing. I love that doctor. Never saw her again because I opted for home birth, something that simply doesn't mix with MDs.

Mimi said...

Ha! Once, trying on bathing suits with my sister and accompanied by her two year old, I was doing the bounce test (you know, where you bounce to see if your boobs jiggle unacceptably). We settled the question and moved on.

But not before my nephew, dazed looking, asked "can you jiggle some more, Auntie Mimi?"

Oh dear.
(thanks for visiting, btw!)

sweatpantsmom said...

I guess The Mayor likes those older women (better keep him away from Mrs. Potato Head...)

Gingers Mom said...

You are such a hoot. Now wonder where you kid gets it from. What did the mom do? Was she appalled? I would have laughed my Dana off!!

Dirty Birdie said...

Well at least he didn't yell out "Good Game" or "Nice Ass Sugar Tits."

and Dana....ha ha ha ha

ewe are here said...

I just spit out my ice cream.
Seriously funny.
:-)

Chaos Control said...

Boys are just so much fun, aren't they? LOVE it!

urban-urchin said...

That kid kills me. I think his preschool teacher must be thrilled that she gets to hang out with him during the week.

Kyla said...

Seriously?!? Hahahaha!

notfearingchange said...

LMAO oh nice job The Mayor!
