Now THIS Makes Me Want Kids For Sure

Last weekend, I visited my brother, sister-in-law and their two girls. Being a firefighter who enjoys many days off each month, my brother is tasked with watching their youngest a few days every week. She's almost eighteen months old and a total firecracker. He shared the best story ever while I was visiting...

Apparently one day last week, he was laying on the chase lounge portion of their couch, watching TV. My niece was tooling around playing with her toys, doing her thing. She noticed her daddy and walked over behind him to pat him on the back. She lifted up his t-shirt and poked him a couple times with her tiny finger. Then she wandered away to continue her important baby business.

My brother didn't flinch when she came back and lifted his shirt again. But then next thing he knew, she yanked open the waistband of his underwear and dropped three raisins down his buttcrack.

She's not even two!! He said he almost died laughing, as did I. What in the world would possess a kid to drop dried fruit down her dad's pants, I have no idea. But I could not be more proud of her and am certain if I can have a kid that does stuff like that, all will be right in the world.

Wow, that was awkward said...

My kids haven't stored any raisins in my butt crack. But they like to show me their respective butt cracks while they wiggle and sing Shake Your Booty, Shake Your Booty at the top of their lungs.

I love that baby....She's apparently been leaving raisin deposits all over Mom & Dad's house. Dad says they are in the plants, in shoes...but none down his BVD's yet.

Can't wait for you to have a baby...I've been waiting ever since we pretended to be pregnant (twice I think!) in Spanish class. Oh yes, raisins down the crack are just the beginning of all the hilarious things that take place daily with a toddler....love it! Ange

Better down the crack than up the nose where moisture accumulates and makes they turn into prunes!
Do you remember - little one!

Maybe she was tapping into her inner gardener. She was planting seeds, growing wine for when she's ole enough to drink.
