An Important Lesson

Christmas was nice and quiet in my house. The kids were spoiled and I'm counting the days until school starts again.

I do think it's important that my children continue learning during vacation. I don't want them to be ignorant and lazy. Fortunately they have a natural curiosity about the world we live in.

Yesterday my six old asked me, "Mom, what are tighty whities?"

After choking on my tea I asked where he had heard it. It's in the commercial for the Disney movie "G-Force."

I reluctantly explained what "tighty whities" are. The next hour was filled with giggles and tattling. "Mom, he said tighty whities!"

Proud Parent Moment #643 is brought to you by Disney's G-Force.

Disney movies have illicited some of the most insane questions from my children! (And I am glad to hear that mine aren't the only kids doing some television learning while on break!)

That's just straight up adorable! I love that age... that innocence... when someone saying the word "dumb" is teetering precariously on the edge of cursing! LOL.

Enjoy your little ones. They really DO grow up too fast!

So now I had to go and Wiki "tighty whities" to find out what that meant. :)

Yeah.... we have several of those moments in my household, too. I can't remember exactly what my husband said the other day at lunchtime that set them off, but I know it involved flutes and gas. And they found it hilarious.

If that's the most embarrassing question your kids have ever asked you, you are living on borrowed time.
