The Fragrance of Brothers

"Let me smell your breath," The Mayor said leaning towards his sister's face.
The Rooster exhaled.
"Your breath smells like yogurt!" he declared.
"Now let me smell YOUR breath," The Rooster said.
The Mayor leaned in again and this time he breathed on her.
"Your breath smells like BOOTY," she triumphed.
[Oh, The Proud.]

Over the last week, The Mayor, undaunted, has continued to ask his sister to check his breath.

Last night while eating ice cream he asked her to smell it again.
"Does it smell like ice cream?" he asked.
The Rooster smiled and nodded emphatically.
"Yes," she said, "like ice cream............... and butts."
[Thinly veiled parental giggling.]
"Half ice cream, half butts."
Happy New Year!

[May your year be filled with sweet, minty breath.]

Ben and Jerry's Mint Chocolate Butt Icecream. Delish.

I have to ask exactly what you were searching for to come up with those two photos. Wait, no I don't.

Happy New Year!

Just so you know? These butt jokes, fart jokes, burping, and all other sort of fun things continue for many years with brothers and sisters :)
Happy New Year!

I just love that Alan's leaping self portrait is performed next to a floral couch. It adds a special something.

this is the butt ice cream that put the other one out of business

Does Rooster win every competition? She sure sounds pretty good.
As for the pictures - yes, WTF? But the pole dancer, well, you might practise some things for K.

I laughed my ass off at the postscript photos.

And here is my P.S. - so glad we were able to meet in person this year, my dear! xoxo

Derive comfort where you can. At least he isn't sitting on her head and asking her to smell his farts. Brothers have been known to do that.
Not that I would know.
I hope that 2009 is so wonderful that you'd have to be twins to enjoy it more!

Have a great New Year!
If they are already talking about butt breath, think about the possibilities for the new year to come.

My kids ask to smell my breath. I don't ask what it smells like. They are now school age and still find all things fart & butt related hilarious. But they have stopped picking up visitors' shoes to smell.

My kids are also expert breath detectives...they like to catch me sneaking chocolate when I've told them they can't have any. This is always done by getting a little too close and inhaling deeply. So far no one has accused me of smelling like butts but there's always a first!

Happy New Year, sweets, to you and your adorable family. And yes, I think there may be some poledancing in K's future....

Rooster and my 2 1/2 yr old daughter must meet. It's amazing the way she works "poopy butt" or "stinky butt" into a sentence. I blame it on the 6 yr old brother factor. That or the poorly hidden snickers from her parents.
I love your fierce Rooster Girl stories! She sounds like quite a girl.

You'd think that the words "shock and awe" would have offered some kind of warning...Alas, I am slow on the uptake. Apparently.

I'm off to scrub those images from my eyeballs with my toothbrush.

Happy New Year!
