Woodys, Strap-Ons and Blue Balls

So there's been a lot of giggling in the Trenches lately.

It's me.

Apparently, I have the mind of a 13-year old boy. (Not a shock, to those who know me in real life.)

You see, Middle has taken to carrying around his Toy Story doll wherever he goes. So there's a lot of these types of conversations going on:

"Where's my Woody?"
"Do you want to play with my Woody?"
"Lookit my Woody!"
"Don't touch my Woody!"

And this, the latest one from Middle, directed to Baby as Baby was pretending to be a puppy dog: "You chewed on my Woody! I just saw you do it!"

(Yeah, this one had Hubby and I in hysterics.)


And then...there's the new Wii that we got for Christmas. A huDge hit in the Trenches. But the Wii-motes make me nervous. Especially because we have the Wii set up in our sunroom - which is all glass windows. Yeah. So I've been uttering these types of phrases lately:

"Put your strap on!"
"You can't play without the strap on!"
"Don't yank it from him, he's got the strap on!"
And Wii bowling?

There's a lot of talk from the boyz about which color bowling ball they get each time they play. So this can be heard quite a bit:

"Yay! I got the blue ball!"
"Look! My ball is blue!"

(I confess, I have been known to say to the boyz, "Daddy HATES the blue balls.")

So welcome to the Trenches, 2009 Edition: All Potty Talk, All The Time! Heh.

Funny, I was just thinking that I took a blog Hiatus & needed to get back for 2009. But all I had were stories that surrounded potty talk. Like today, the resounding sound was my boys yelling about their 'peckers'. And yesterday, a lot of talk about how they love 'caulk'. FYI, peckers are hangers that are pretending to be wood peckers. And caulk is really caulk... but it sounds so much different coming out of your child's mouth.

LMAO! It must be pecker week in the blogosphere! In addition to your post, there was Karly's at WipingUpSnot, Christina's at MommyCity & Gina's at MyVeryLastNerve

I'm practically Wii-ing myself! Strap-on - heh.

HRH refers to the little plastic pieces that connect orange Hot Wheel tracks as "hookers." As in "Mom, can we get more hookers?" Dad is entirely on board.

Spend too long with a Woody and you're bound to get blue balls.

I've got to hand it to you, girlie! You make me laugh my butt off when I read EVERY.SINGLE.POST! I just can't wait to tune in every day!

And you know I read your blog and anticipate the craziness that will soon come out of my son's mouth! Well, we need to work on talking, first! We're still little!

Keep the funnies coming! :>)

We do not have a wii. ILs do. When we were at ILs house playing it MIL said more than once she would help me put the strap on if I thought I would drop it. Yeppers. My MIL offered to help me with a strap on.

Oh and on another note...I received teh "days of Christmas" giveaway I won and it is BEAUTIFUL! Thank you so much for offering it and for shipping it so quickly.

SO glad it's not just me!

I have a similar story about a Woody. About ten years ago I was the manager at a store that specialized in watches. One day a customer came and asked for a Woody watch. Without even thinking I said, "I don't have a Woody but I have a Buzz!" I don't get embarrassed easily but I know I turned bright red and the customer and I couldn't stop laughing. Unfortunately he wasn't interested in my buzz.

This CRACKED me UP, Sarah! My boys are in a Toy Story phase right now, and I was just thinking the other day about posting how I can hardly hear the boys talk about Woody without having to suppress a snicker.

We are so in the same boat with this.

And then I read the "I don't have a Woody, but I have a Buzz" comment and almost peed myself.

Great stuff! :)
