Shark Bites - Typical Boy

IMG_4955


We were expecting company in one hour and I was dashing around and Shark Boy crossed my path. "You," I said. "Go change your clothes. And put on something that matches." "Matches what?" "Matches each other!" **************************************** Rob took Shark to the lake for a hike. It was a steamy southern afternoon with temps near 90 degrees. They came to a big steep hill and Shark said, "Let's go up there!" and Rob said, "I don't think I really want to climb that hill in this heat." Then they came to a slope downhill into a swampy area. "Let's go down there!" Shark said and my dad said, "No, it's all muddy down there. We'll be covered in mud." Shark looked at him and said, "One more statement like that from you and I'll have to start calling you an old woman." ******************************************

It's a good thing kids are washable cause they sure like to get dirty.


And the boys not only do not care if their clothes match, they don't even know what it means.

My first born is just the opposite, the pretty boy type. Doesn't like to be dirty or not matching. Sir Talks-A-Lot could care less!

Diva - It's funny that you got one of each! Shark Boy is starting to get pickier about his clothes, but it's only in terms of which tee shirt he prefers that day (!).

Heh. I'm going to start using that old woman line. It rocks!

Rachel said...

Love the... "matches what" and "old woman" comments. He's a hoot and such a good lookin' kiddo!

Elisa said...

That's hilarious! What did your husband say to the threat to be called an old woman? :-)

Life As I Know It said...

I've got two boys...3 if you count my husband. None of them know what "matching" means ;)

The "old woman" part kills me.

And I'm with you on the not caring about the matching. For the longest time, my son would wear his spiderman snow boots with everything regardless of the season and he'd tuck his pants in to them. I'd just be thinking honey you so do not know how you're making mommy cringe.

Yeah, just like my son. Couldn't care less how clean or dirty he is, whether he smells nice or disgusting, and whether he has matching clothing, or whether he's even wearing clothing. Boys...
