Encore!

Grandma Seattle (a.k.a. my mom) was in town over the weekend to celebrate her birthday.

On Sunday night there was a post-cupcake toddler crazy dance in her honor.

Two tiny people gyrated wildly, screamed, ran around and called it "The Show."

At the end, Grandma Seattle clapped in delight and shouted,

"Encore!"

The Mayor lifted an eyebrow and smiled deviously.


"You want an encore?" he said.


Grandma Seattle nodded enthusiastically.

Still grinning mischievously, The Mayor dropped his pants, turned his rear to face her and shook it with gusto.

Oh, The Proud!

Nice one!

Serina Hope said...

Oh yes. That is what I call an encore.

Springsteen used to do the same thing for his encores. You've never seen Rosalita performer properly without Bruce's ass shaking.

Family Adventure said...

I figured he'd be dropping his pants, but thought he might go get his Halloween horsey.

This was just as good!

Nothing like a dinner and a "show" to celebrate!

ARCI on NovBlow&Go.

Quite an encore! My son also loves to drop his pants and do the "butt dance". Happy Birthday, Grandma Seattle!

Jenifer said...

I guess it is what Dana suggested for an encore?

Sounds like another fun evening in the House of Joy.

Janet said...

What is it with kids and their bums? Both of mine consider pointing their (clothed) derrieres at me and rubbing them with both hands to be the pinnacle of comedy.

QT said...

Wow - if this is how he is now, you are going to have your hands full when he gets to high school~

The Mayor strikes again!

Magpie said...

I love that. And your illustration, of the man.

During the prep for my wedding, we talked about hanging up a big round paper lantern in a tree, so it would look like a moon. Every single time someone said "let's hang the moon", everyone's pants came down. It's on videotape, even.

beta mom said...

That must have meant it was (are you ready for it?) THE END! (Drum riff) Goodnight bloggers - you've been a great crowd!

Sorry - it's lame, but it's all I've got today. Nekkid butts trump all.

Mimi said...

Bums are funny. Thank you, that is all :-)

Jennifer said...

HA! Did Grandma Seattle request encore #2?

Multi-tasking Mommy said...

HILARIOUS!

Beck said...

And once again, I am reminded that I am raising prudes.

AnotherMomCreation said...

Funny! I loved that!
I wonder what my kids grandma would say about that?

Victoria said...

LOL!

Jenn said...

This doesn't happen on a daily basis and was a source of humiliation?

Huh.

Guess I'd better start re-thinking what passes as acceptable here in the castle.

motherbumper said...

*thud* - that's my jaw hitting the floor on your mom's behalf.

That is one hilarious kidlet you've got there.

slackermommy said...

Go Mayor, go Mayor! Work it!

Momish said...

LOL! The Mayor does it again!

Mac and Cheese said...

Be careful what you wish for, I guess.

~JJ! said...

Gotta love a full moon.

Lisa Milton said...

awesome - we love you Mayor.

Major Bedhead said...

A Mayoral moon. What an honour.


Your kids crack me up (well, you do too - the apple, the tree, etc, yada yada).

Circus Kelli said...

Excellent! I would expect nothing less!

Mrs. Chicken said...

No one can deny that the boy, he's got style.

Veronica said...

That is too funny! What an encore!

flutter said...

That boy certainly has his theatrics down!

cronznet said...

I believe the core of the story is:
The apple never falls far from the tree! (I'm thinkin' of that skirt picture featuring the Mayor's mom, for example)

we_be_toys said...

Sounds like "The Show" was a big hit, and that encore had to be the ultimate show-stopper. Man do I miss those years! Thanks for sharing such a priceless moment.

g-man said...

Wow, in our house encore means something TOTALLY different ;)

Good one Mayor!

Loralee Choate said...

One word:

Bravo!

holly said...

you're not really a granny until your grandkid's flashed your butt at you...

carrie said...

Funny, the encore I saw Saturday night was nothing like that! :) That kid, he's going to go places!

Happy Birthday to the Fab Grandma Seattle!

Shauna Loves Chocolate said...

Oh The Funny (because it didn't happen to me!)

Queen of the Mayhem said...

Well.....she asked for it!!!! :)

Sarcastic Mom (aka Lotus) said...

Above Average Joe said...

Ah, the power of sugar!

Damselfly said...

That boy is too much! A birthday present for sure...

dawn224 said...

what the... how the ... how does Dana equal Encore?

Deb said...

I suppose Grandma is unlikely to whip out a lighter and request another encore, so at least the world was safe from blue flames.

Jeff Lee said...

Just think, someday he'll bring home a girl and you can embrass HIM with this story!

JCK said...

Great story! Love your category "butt and poo" - I can relate, relate, relate to that tag!

Grandparents are the BEST audiences. I sure remember mine as I hammed it up.

meno said...

Eh, people from Seattle are used to casual nudity.

Shannon said...

That's hilarious!

My boys do that naked butt dance daily. Seriously, they do.

Pendullum said...

Makes one wonder where he learned that from?

Jo Beaufoix said...

Hee hee.
