Okay, I'm out of my league here. David's end of the year party is tomorrow. We're grilling hot dogs and having a fun lunch. I decided to make cupcakes. Went to the store got the cake mix. Then I see right next to all the cake stuff is a pretty photo of some jigglers. I can do that. On impulse I grab 4 boxes of jello mix, check out, and head for home. Only once did I give slight way to the fact that I had never made them. Spidey came, walking right along with me, webbing everyone in sight with one hand, holding mine with the other. We're walking to the car and I tell Dano, "I love you monkey-face". Just a new nick-name we've come up with. All of the sudden my little angel throws his hand in the air and screams, "Goodbye Monkey-BUTT!!!" Gasps. I bust out laughing. To my left is an older woman, hand to her chest, gasping at my angel. Then glaring. Then growling something and walking away. Yes, this whole time I'm still laughing so hard my head hurt. I can NOT believe my little "Spidey" did that! If you know me at all you know that when I get surprised or nervous or excited, I can't stop laughing. This poor woman thought my son had called her monkey-butt and I can only imagine what the woman must have been thinking when the heathens own MOTHER didn't do anything about it. I was so embarassed! So we clamber into the car, both still laughing. Dano ever so proud of himself. And we head for home. Still laughing at the "incident". So now I'm going to have to call Dano "jiggler". His little belly didn't stop jiggling all the way home. Not even when we stopped for Dr. Pepper and told Daddy what happened. Guess we all needed some comic relief today!

Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to go wing some jigglers with my little jiggler. :)
ps - please know that my little angel was not saying that TO the womam, she was just in hearing distance. He was saying it to be silly and get a giggle from mom. :)

I am crying! I can't even see to type this. I got a visual of your "incident". That kid cracks me up, but I would have never expected those words would come from his mouth!

lol, me either! We've only ever called him "monkey-face". I think that's why I laughed so hard instead of telling that poor lady how sorry I was. I know... BAD Momma!
