My funny son....

As one of our activities this week, we decided to take all of the kids to the Art gallery. They had all sorts of things for the kids to do, and we also figured that a little culture wouldn't hurt them. We are walking through the gallery and are in the Christopher Pratt exibit. Sam gets a little ahead of me which is never good, and next thing I hear is him saying, "that looks like my mom" All of the kids are laughing and people leaving the exibit are smiling. I look where the kids are looking and I see this....












Well, to say I was embarassed would be a major understatement, but what could I do? I'm not so sure that I really stand around with my hands on my hips while naked but anyway. We quickly moved on to the Maud Lewis exibit. Of course, we had to pass through the Pratt exibit again to get out, and as we walk through one of Karen's kids pipes up"there's Alison".......

So cultured we are. They did seem to enjoy the rest of the gallery and they got to paint their own Tom Thompson inspired art. We left with dripping creations and delivered them to Grandmother before heading home to the silence...

Oh my goodness! Kids hey? We go into the fitting room to try on bras and when I'm done my son announces... "no mommy! I want to see your boobies!" or when we go pee in a public washroom and he announces "Mommy...you have a gina right? Let's see it!"
Good times!! I mean you gotta admit she's pretty hot... skinny.... at least it wasn't some fat hairy old granny that he announced looked like you.... there is an upside!

That is SO funny and embarrassing too.
People will think that you stroll around naked.

"There goes that hippie, free-thinking Alison. Those poor kids are growing up in a nudist household!"
