Snippets of conversations I heard from the nursing chair last night at dinner time while Daddy and the boys served their plates:
B: We heard the weirdest song on the way home from your baseball game on Sunday, Caleb. It was something about “that bass”
J and C in chorus: Because I’m all about that bass, ’bout that bass – no treble!
—– a few minutes later —–
B: [child's name], quit farting on people! It might have been funny the first few hundred times, but now it’s not!
Thus began a conversation about farting etiquette (it’s a thing, people, especially when you live with boys). My favorite gem of this conversation was, “The best thing to do is SIT ON IT.”
Not too long after this, I joined them at the table. Farting talk tapered off and we ended up (after everyone was done eating) pulling up Jimmy Fallon clips on the iPad. It started with the Adam Levine/Jimmy musical impressions bit, then went on to the Justin Timberlake/Jimmy “History of Rap” bits.
Y’all, I really did the world a disservice by NOT having my video camera ready to film the singing and dancing that went on around my table. Really. You have not lived until you’ve seen your 14-year-old break it down to old-school hip-hop, and your 10-year-old bust out all the words to Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy.”
We ended the evening with a rousing 3 part (14-year-old, 10-year-old, and 4-year-old) remix of “Baby Got Back.”
So, you know, a typical Tuesday evening around here.
