You Like Spanky?

Last night K called me to the bathroom to witness my children's tub time performance.

They stood in the bathtub repeatedly scream-singing the nonsense words, “highra dohba” while shaking and slapping their toddler butts.

They thought this was hilarious.

Hee-lair-eee-ous.

The thing is, every time I tell this kind of story about my kids people say things like,


“The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, I see.”

As if I stand naked in the tub slapping my butt flaps and yelling HIGHRA DOHBA!

Please.

I really can't imagine where they get this stuff from.



"HEY, BENDOVAH!"


(Oh, my stylish tube top!)








On a much more serious note, please go and sign Jenn's card for a fallen soldier.

A family that slaps butts together...stays together.

Sayre said...

My son seems to enjoy spanking himself... I guess it takes a while to outgrow.

Mary Alice said...

Maybe that's what I need today...to go take a shower, jump around and spank myself. Yea, that might help....I'll let you know if it improves my spirits.

Lawyer Mama said...

Hmmm, maybe that would get my kids more enthused about bathing. I know it would get my hubby more enthused about, um, something!

Victoria said...

Spanking, showers, tube tops...I can't believe my husband isn't interested in reading blogs. He's missing good stuff!

That tube top is actually quite flattering. You pull it off, quite well.

{I love it when you get all fancy with the pictures.}

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one with kids that make up nonsense words and do strange things.

The boys like to run around naked and scream "I'm the Naked Boy" and when Daddy's naked too -- it's a right old party! Ooops TMI...

Anyway....

The likes to run naked through the house yelling: "I'M NUDIE!"Her father accuses me of corrupting her every chance he gets.

As if he doesn't love it when I run through the house yelling, "I"M NUDIE!"

flutter said...

psha, I can't imagine WHERE your little nutbars get it....

Let's just say it is the House of JOY for a reason.

those are the best performances... the ones you couldn't do in public! ;)

I love the choice of the park ranger hat during bath time.

Gah, I just collect myself long enough from your post to comment and then I read Mrs. Chicken's comment and she's got me cracking up all over again.

(seriously though, J - if the community college needs a Photoshop teacher you should consider signing up!)

In our house, we do a little number we like to call The Tushie Show, in which the rear end is wiggled back and forth at its audience while a little song is sung that goes, "Tushie, tushie, tushie, tushie, tushie show-o." We're hoping that at least one of us outgrows this before the kids start dating.

dgibbs said...

Nice pic! Too funny.

Jennifer said...

Work it, baby!

CamiKaos said...

I am so happy for you that you now have a photo of K in that hat to paste into things... much mo better that way.

corgimom said...

Mine likes to bend over in front of the mirror each evening to check himself for diaper rash. No song, yet, alas, and rarely ever a rash.

Katrina said...

Ya know, I'm tired of you photoshopping my pics of me and the Murph. ;o) heeheehee...

motherbumper said...

OK - that's hot (OMG DID I SAY THAT?) - FYI: I'm talking about the park ranger spanking.

You are the photoshop queen (please tell me that's photoshoped b/c I don't remember the bobble head - not that there's anything wrong with that).

Redneck Mommy said...

Hey, I'd bend over if you wore that outfit for me...

Snicker.

liv said...

Although I agree that you have mad photoshop skillz, I think your rack is larger IRL.

Mad Hatter said...

Tee, hee.

urban-urchin said...

Sadly my children like to do these things outside of the confines of our home...

my boy likes to grab his package and declare "PEE-NUS" in a way that is eeriely similar to Borat. And then adds proudly "I grab that!"

The girl liked to disrobe at wildly inappropriate times when she was the Mayors age- like pulling her pants down around her ankles while we were waiting in line to by Mother's Day Candy at See's. It took the horrified stares of the blue haired ladies and the evil little giggle for me to look down and see her business on display.

Lisa said...

So I guess my family and I will see you all at the next "Family of Butt Slappers" convention?

BOSSY said...

You people spend more time in the bathroom than a commode.

Kyla said...

I bow down to the master of photoshop. You crack me up, J. I love it.

I've always thought that bathtub butt flap slapping was highly under-appreciated.

Thank you for your bravery in coming forward to give it the recognition it deserves.

King Isepik said...

Nice tube... :)

Emily said...

Butt Flaps!
Oh, the visual!
You create so much joy in the blogosphere. :)
*sigh* I have to go change my pants.

Shauna Loves Chocolate said...

Ha ha ha!

Mrs. Chicky said...

Nobody wears a tube top like you, my friend.

KC said...

*just trying to figure out who were in those photos originally* (I like your rendition of course)

carrie said...

Good one.

Ruth Dynamite said...

I've been looking at my kids lately and thinking the very thing. (Except I'm more Saucy than apple tree-like.)

Meegan said...

I haven't thought about this in SO long. When my sister and I were little we used to smack our bare butts together and say "Hunka-Hunka!". No idea where that came from. Thanks for bringing back such a fun memory.

FENICLE said...

Oh come one, you know you guys do this type of activity all the time!! It's called fore-play.

Daddy Papersurfer said...

You have the power of Tippex too!

~JJ! said...

You: rockin' the tube top.

Him: rocking the forest ranger hat.

tinakala said...

Well, why not? Sadomasochism has not been categorised as mental illness for years not. Slap that butt.

kellyo75 said...

Awesome! Your kids are hilarious! I quite like the tube top, it suits you well :-)

Jo Beaufoix said...

Hee hee.

I love it when kids try to make you laugh. It is so cute.

sandra said...

I am still laughing. I need to spank myself too...

Stella said...

I just found you...I'm crying I'm laughing so hard! Good God woman, you're funny!

Spanky said...

How can Spanky pee in her butt?
