Wedge in the Water Hole

My friend Michele invited The Family Joy over for post nap play, dinnner and a walk in the nature preserve yesterday.

"If it's warm out," she told us, "bring swim suits for the kids because we just got a new inflatable pool..."

Well, it was warm out.

[Of course I totally forgot the bathing suits.]

It didn't matter though. Apparently, I'm raising my little people right because they took one look at the inflatable pool and demanded to be stripped naked.

"Take my clothes off NOW, Mommy!!"

Michele's husband offered The Mayor a swim diaper ( "in case he would feel more comfortable" ) but my boy wholly rejected those good intentions.

Nekkid is IN.

The Mayor frolicked about in the inflated pool waving his host's plastic, toy golf club in the air, smacking the pool toys and splashing the water with it.

Then he turned to Michele and her husband and said,

"Hey! Look what I can do! I can put this golf club up my butt!!"

Just like that, in all his nude glory, he wedged the toy 5 Iron between his butt cheeks, grinned like a maniac and waited for applause.

What on EARTH is Michele going to tell her son today when he wants to play with his toy golf set?

"Sorry, bud. Golf stinks."

Want to have us over?

OMG...lmaoooooo.

I got no golf clubs except the hubby's. Oh go ahead. He can have it. Saves me money. Come on over.

mommiebear2 said...

OMG - That is too funny and so something my little guy would do. Thats what kids are for, to embarrass the hell out of us.

Julie Pippert said...

I'm so excited to finally be here early enough to comment!

Nekkid is way in. I mean, if you can't be nekkid in your own backyard as a kid *with a free pass to be so*, when can you be?

Or, as your kids do, mine get nekkid at our best friends' house too.

LOL at the Mayor and the golf club. My kids are butt-obsessed too. I say it comes from their dad's side.

The Davis' said...

Hilarious! I can picture a few little ones I know doing the same thing.

Patience said...

Excellent, Mayor! There are a great many people whom I would love to see with a golf club up butt, but they probably wouldn't have enjoyed it nearly as much as Mayor!

Augs Casa said...

All I can say is Thank the good Lord it wasn't the Driver or putter!!! I think I want to play a round with the Major. I'm sure we would have some interesting conversations and um, club selections...ha ha ha

Jen Magnuson said...

SNORT!!! And I love the hole in one comment....I'll bet you travel with a lot of disinfectant. Or at least your friends do ;)

Paige said...

As much as I love the Mayor, I'm sort of glad I nixed the whole pool idea on Saturday.

Holy moly.

Kind of Crunchy Mama said...

Poor Dana!

Kyla said...

The Mayor is quite the character. That painting is hilarious!

Dirty Birdie said...

LOL Oh my GOD!! You are welcome at my house any time!!! hahahahahahaha

Queen Heather said...

LMAO! Nekkid is always in on the Shake-Shake. It's been in for over 6 years now. I'm so use to nekkid boy tushes that I wouldn't bat an eye. You would even get a parting gift of a toy golf club to go home with you! hehe!

Hilarious post!

Woman with kids said...

OMG. That's hysterical.

Mrs. Schmitty said...

LOL! Hilarious post!

crazymumma said...

Thank gawd there is another family like mine, I just have the girl version.

I need that picture on a t shirt by the way. need it.

DD said...

Some say you can judge the home life by how your children play.

Your home life scares the bajeebus out of me.

Annie said...

I really needed this laugh :) I'm sure my daughter will come out with something that will make me equally as proud, soon!

QT said...

I bet The Mayor was wondering why he didn't get a thundering round of applause.

The only thing that could have made it better would have been you releasing the Mighty Wind.

Tessa said...

OMG... are you related to us??? lol

BOSSY said...

You've reminded Bossy why she doesn't golf.

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

HA. Love that kid. Butt tricks are my favorite!

Jan said...

Laughing out loud- VERY loud!

ali said...

i'm a big fan of nekkid. big fan, big fan. ;)

slouching mom said...

OK, I am beginning to think that my life will not be complete until I meet The Mayor.

Lisa Milton said...

What a character. I dare say you will never be bored with that one around.

Come to think of it, nor will your friends, neighbors, people on the street...

He was born to the right folks - some parents would FREAK OUT.

Rapunzel said...

Again, I missed these "boy joys" by only having girls! I am laughing my own butt off here!

Lawyer Mama said...

Oh, my stomach hurts from laughing now!

You can come over to my house. The Mayor would fit right in, naked golf and all.

Stepping Over the Junk said...

your kids can run up the street with mine, who enjoy running up the sidewalk with their dresses up over their shoulders making "capes" but in reality, showing off their butts.

Shauna said...

LOVE IT!

notfearingchange said...

Oh lord....

wendy boucher said...

I'm crying here. That is hilarious!

Kristin said...

Oh, that is just so so funny and so so wrong!

mimikatemom said...

Too funny Mayor. Appears the apple doesn't fall far from the tree however...I seem to recall lurking through some honeymoon (?)photos and there was a sun hat, I believe, and a rather ummm, thick fence post? There may have been applause...can't be sure.

I prefer nekkid myself. Naked is overrated!

amyerj said...

Absolutely - you and the nekkid clan are welcome anytime. Warning, my dog is fascinated by low hanging fruit.

carmachu said...

You know, I really wish you lived alot closer....I think you'd fit right in here.

Audrey said...

That is hilarious! I have 3 little boys... I can only imagine what I'm in for! Great blog!

The Medium Swede said...

Looks like The Mayor has taken up my kind of golf!

The Sour Kraut said...

The Swede has a serious preoccupation with butts...and golf. He and The Mayor would get along beautifully.

mamatulip said...

I am in love with your family.

BlondeMomBlog (Jamie) said...

OH, the nekkidness!

Mrs. Chicken said...

Dana is multi-talented, indeed! You can come play in our kiddie pool any time.

Pgoodness said...

That's just fantastic. LOL. And yes, you're still welcome any time. My boys would be thrilled to have someone else around that loves all things butt. :-) Oh, and the nekkidness...gotta love it.

corgimom said...

Come on over! Pool is inflated and 2-year-old-boy-in-need-of-OMG-inspiring-mentor is a waitin' for a fearless leader.

flutter said...

Oh.My.God.

I think I just peed myself. Have any more of those swim diapers?!

Mrs. Chicky said...

I'd totally invite you to my pool. But I'd hide the toys. Especially the pointy ones. Heh.

Iris said...

I have to ask......does K play golf????

jen said...

hilarious. see, i can picture it so much better now.

hilarious.

Manic Mom said...

THat's a kid for you. Today, Tukey grabbed his brother's 'cup,' and I don't mean a drinkin' one, placed it over his twigs and berries, and said, "Punch me in the balls, Mom."

WTF?

Kristina said...

You have no idea just how much that behavior would be welcome at our abode. Yes, are you available for a playdate in Eastern Washington?

Queen Karana said...

oi... laughter hurts. that was toooo funny

Mama's Moon said...

We're at Nana's house for a while...come on over. We need a few good laughs a la The Mayor! Except, we don't have golf clubs. Hmmm, would knickknacks work???

EE said...

The 19th hole??????

Chris H said...

Too funny, and sounds like something our little monster would do for sure! Ain't kids grand?

velvet girl said...

That's hysterical. Your kids and my kids sound like a match made in heaven. ;)

Sandra Miller said...

Good God, woman--

I needed a laugh this morning, and you (as always) delivered.

Jenifer said...

I keep envisioning some kind of instructional video...

The Mayor is such a treat.

Marmite Breath said...

You can always let people hire out The Mayor for parties. He sounds like a riot!

karrie said...

You'd fit right in here.I think my Max would adore your Mayor.

wayabetty said...

Well, I give him an A for creatively at least!

Penny. said...

OMGosh!!! He's just too hilarious for words! I come here to laugh, and he never fails me!

ROFLMAO!!!

"Hey! Look what I can do! I can put this golf club up my butt!!"

Kim said...

What a kid...he's hilarious...and creative too!

I wonder what they did with said golf club after you left...

Gingers Mom said...

My kids are the same way. I'll have you over anytime. Sounds entertaining!

Kelly said...

LOL...That picture is hilarious!

Jen Magnuson said...

By the way, I was walking past the youth sports desk at my gym last night and there, on the counter, was a golf club. I laughed out loud. Probably made me look a little psycho, but ah, well. Not the first time.

jchevais said...

Nice birdy!

Damselfly said...

Kids really love their butts. I think it's just that simple. ;)
