Here's to no headaches and eating weird things

*I want to give a big SHOUT OUT and CONGRATS to Casey and Ethan today. They know what I'm talking about. I dedicate this to the happy couple:




* Tristan wouldn't let me take a picture of his newfound armpit hair. Not that I'd really take a pic of his armpit hair and post it, but he thinks I would which is totally funny to me and means I am doing my job as a mom- embarrassing him.

* I watched a show about little girls that do pageants. Those moms are just out of control. It made me really sad. These 5 year olds are wearing fake teeth because they lost a tooth and it looks "bad." Hello- what looks more "5 year-old-ish" than lost teeth? See I have proof:

* Does anyone else out there eat gum like it's candy? On Atkins I can't eat a lot of carbs. Well, sugar alcohol doesn't count as carbs, so most sugarfree gum is ok to chew/eat. I ate an entire pack of gum today. And it was good. Am I weird? I only do it when it's a fruity flavor. Today it was watermelon. Yum.

* Sei keeps telling me he's going to grow a mustache or a "cop-stache" as I like to call it. He already does the "cop chew" when he chews gum. You know the kinda "tough guy smack" that cops do? HE DOES THAT- and it's not even on purpose. It's ridiculous. All he needs is a 'stache and dark sunglasses and then he will be this guy, minus the hair...

Do you mean "chew" gum, or "eat" gum? Because if you eat the gum, then yes, you're on your own. But if you CHEW gum constantly, then no. Orbit cinnamon all day every day. I don't even usually like cinnamon gum, but that does the trick for me.

I've never done that before, the double-posting a comment. I'm embarrassed by it and should go delete one, but I'm going to leave it so that I can be publicly shamed, which will ensure that I never ever do it again.

I meant EAT the gum. As in swallow it after a few minutes.

I'm doing this double-post on purpose to show I've got your back. Double-comments is nothing to be embarrassed about. It happens to the best of us.

Yvonne said...

I can't stand to chew gum after the flavor (aka sugar) is gone. But I don't swallow it--you know all those old wives tales ; )

I feel sorry for those little girls, too.

Heidi said...

TAJ IS HUGE!!! What happened? He keeps getting older without me! :(

Mikelene said...

EAT gum? No. Chew it, yes. I'll go thru 4-5 sticks of Orbit Bubblemint in an hour if I'm craving something sweet. I take the bubble gum out of my kids' Halloween buckets--cuz that stuff will rot their teeth. I chew it all up. The flavor dies out within 45 seconds. Lame.
I watch a lot of TLC, so I have seen promos for that show. Those moms have issues. Can you imagine how messed up those little girls are gonna be 10 years from now? Sad.
Just say no to the cop-stache. Makes me think of Reno 911.

Rawr, cue the Magnum, P.I. theme music.

HHAHAAA! Tori, you are so funny. I just snorted a little at the double post.
Who double posts like that anyway, SHEESH Omar!

So, that picture of Taj simply melted my heart. No way around it. A boy I know through the internet just melted my heart. SO CUTE.
And, uh, I know Bo is quite a bit older (while still 5) and there ain't even anything remotely loose in his gums. Just that gums themselves, flap flap flapping.

Anyway, that copstache is atrocious. But Deputy Travis can pull it off. So, maybe Sei can.
Good luck with that.

NOBODY said...

And I totally meant to say, "that gums themselves"

Because I can.

Stacey said...

I love to eat bubble-licious..always have,always will.

Those little girls will need so much therapy.

Lost teeth are so cute and kid-ish.

The cop-stache rules.

Klin said...

Taj is so stinkin cute. And yes 5 year olds should have gaps in their teeth. Parents who make their kids live out the childhood they wanted infuriate me.

Momma Magpie said...

Hilarious! The copstache is funny. I'd donate a dollar if Sei grows a stache. Seriously, you could make it a funny fundraiser! With all your bloggy friends donating a buck to the stache, you could make enough for a bill or two!

Pageants are quite sad. As if young women or girls need any help at all with their self image-- here's mom making sure that their looks are all those kids live and breath. Great way to mess your kid up, Mom!

Lastly, are you chewing the gum or eating it? It makes me nervous when Noah swallows the gum, and he always does. My mom said I'd grow a gum tree in my tummy (is there such a thing?) or I wouldn't be able to poop for a month if I ate gum. Talk about messing your kids up-- my mom told me all kinds of crazy stuff! I think I had nightmares about tree branches growing out of my stomach. :-)

Nancy Face said...

I love that Tristan thinks you'd really take a picture of his pit hair, haha! :D

No Cool Story said...

;) Tori is awesome!

Cop-stache, interesting. Just please say no to the short tight shorts. Nope.

Were you watching that show too? I catch part of it, where the one mom says that the only people who'd have a problem with them doing kid beauty pageants would be people with "Ugly kids". Whatever, that made me laugh so hard becuase if you saw the whole show that woman was koo-koo whacked out.

Look at Taj so cute and big, awwww :)

Lauren said...

Lol! I think Ted and Tristan could be friends. Whenever anything embarrassing happens, Ted says, "YOU CANNOT BLOG THIS!". Darn!

aubrey said...

you EAT gum? i think i'm going to be sick.

aubrey said...

only because i don't like gum. maybe because i accidentally swallowed one too many pieces when i was younger and that feeling of having something NOT food lodged in my through grosses me out. and makes me gag.

and that show about having kids wear fake teeth to cover the tooth gaps? that is crazy. ava just lost her second tooth today and i think it is the cutest thing ever.

Robin said...

Once a guy I worked with said that I chew gum like a hooker. I don't chew very much gum anymore.
