I love the third one…it's never too early to teach dinner etiquette!
Oh, and I think it may be acceptable to pee off the third floor deck if they can water your plants at the same time…multi-tasking!

I've been like a broken record myself lately – mostly with Z "Get your hands out of your pants!"
April 13, 2010 at 7:30 am
seriously. i just heard that on dirty jobs. if men are up really high–they feel the need to pee off of it. wth??
April 13, 2010 at 7:43 am
LOL, sounds like my Bubby is at your house, LMBO
April 13, 2010 at 7:53 am
"Don't put your hands on your brother like that!" is the phrase of the week, no, MONTH around here.

April 13, 2010 at 8:02 am
An ice cream cone!!!!! Hysterical!
April 13, 2010 at 8:10 am
Who would even WANT to eat at the dinner table with no underwear on? I don't know about you, but I would be kind of chilly on our kitchen chairs.
As always, thanks for the insight into what life with my little boy will be like a few years down the road.

Never a dull moment with those boys! Mine loves showing off his butt too. What is up with that?
April 13, 2010 at 8:33 am
What is up with little boys?????!!!????
April 13, 2010 at 8:37 am
Just stopping by to say hello! Found your blog through Leanne at My Hips and My Home are Doublewide 🙂
Love this post! Too funny!
April 13, 2010 at 8:46 am
Do I HAVE to wear underwear at the dinner table? Really cramps my style….
I think I'm going to use the put your butt away thing….at work. I am SO tired of seeing crack. I see more crack on a daily basis than a proctologist!
April 13, 2010 at 8:54 am
Just stopping by to "meet" another mommy of 3 boys. I've never heard the ice cream cone one! I'm a broken record with "Get your hands out of your pants".

April 13, 2010 at 8:55 am
haha sounds like some good advice.
April 13, 2010 at 8:58 am
Boys love being naked. I don't get it!
Ice cream cone? That's too funny!
April 13, 2010 at 8:59 am
Just another day in life with boys, huh? LOL It's amazing the things that come out of my mouth. Like, No, I won't tickle your pee-pee. Stop asking. LOL

April 13, 2010 at 9:02 am
aw, but mom why can't we pee off the deck? lmao!
These are hysterical! 🙂 I'm off to read your guest post.
April 13, 2010 at 9:23 am
No, I do not think your peepee is shaped like an ice cream cone.
I hope this gets said more often than once.
April 13, 2010 at 9:30 am
Ha! I love that last one!
Ice cream cone. Bwahahahahaha!
And underwear at the dinner table. Yes, I agree. Very important. 😀
April 13, 2010 at 9:50 am
What is it with boys and poop talk? I say the same thing to my oldest…"if you want to talk like that go to the bathroom and do it!" I think stinky and poopy are his favorite words…
We 2 Bee's says
April 13, 2010 at 9:53 am
LOL! That is so funny! We never think about the things we will have to say when you have boys! I find myself saying lots of those! "Leave your brother alone" ranks at the top! Thanks for the laugh!
April 13, 2010 at 10:00 am
My stepson refuses to wear underwear. I found them stuffed under his mattress last summer. I think I am going to ban him from swimming this year if he doesn't wear them!
Sara @ Domestically Challenged says
April 13, 2010 at 10:01 am
Yep, I do the same. Like "DON"T PUT YOUR FINGER THERE!" ahh…the joys of boys.
April 13, 2010 at 10:11 am
OMG these are Hilarious!!!!
Cold As Heaven says
April 13, 2010 at 10:14 am
I'm always swearing too much when I'm talking with my boys. Not because I'm angry … I blame it on Tourette. Anyway, they're used to it … and do the same >:)

Boys will be boys! 🙂
Hair Bows & Guitar Picks says
Sad but true I have said most of these to my boys too 🙂
April 13, 2010 at 10:35 am
LOL those are hillarious and some of them very familiar 🙂 I loved your guest post too…..that's so true! Or you could say "Yes I know thankyou would you like to take one for awhile" 🙂
April 13, 2010 at 10:42 am
Get used to it. Boys play with their penises. Alot.
April 13, 2010 at 11:00 am
HOly Crap…that's hilarious! I wish I could be a fly on the wall at your house! Id laugh all day!
April 13, 2010 at 11:08 am
I love how you inserted a blurb about your guest post. 🙂 THANK you so much. YOur guest post has been really popular!
April 13, 2010 at 11:16 am
They're all the same, those little boys. I say the same dang things all day long. Going to check out your guest post 🙂
April 13, 2010 at 11:39 am
Hehe! These are hilarious–I laughed so hard at the pointer finger…haha!
April 13, 2010 at 11:51 am
And, therein, lies the reason I never wanted a boy baby!!
I don't think moms can understand boys at all! After all, all the big guys who have disgusting habits (too many to list)were once little boys with moms who tried to civilize the little guys but were spectacularly off the mark!!
Messy Mommy says
April 13, 2010 at 11:53 am
Boys. One time Otter had a friend over and I went outside to find them both peeing off our front porch! There was an old man walking by and he about crapped his pants.
April 13, 2010 at 11:58 am
LOL those are great! Gonna to read your guest post.
April 13, 2010 at 11:59 am
Hilarious! Reading funny things like this makes me want to have another baby (sick pregnancy be damned) on the off chance that we'd have a boy. They sound like so much fun!
April 13, 2010 at 12:00 pm
Ha ha ha kids are the best!

April 13, 2010 at 12:15 pm
OMGosh! Hilarious! Dont you just love the things we have to say as moms to boys??
April 13, 2010 at 12:29 pm
Pants at dinner? Totally overrated!
And, hey, if they are peeing off the deck, then you don't have to worry about them peeing on the floor in your bathroom, right?
What's that, your hands are full? Sorry….couldn't resist.
April 13, 2010 at 12:37 pm
Boys and their pee! My 2 year old just learned to make whirlies with his pee! Gasp!
I gave up on the underwear rule at the dinner table, long as they clorox wipe the chair afterwards I am okay! haha!
I am going to check out your post!
April 13, 2010 at 12:41 pm
Ha, Those could be MINE! Just change brother to sister!!!
Sarah and the Gentlemen says
April 13, 2010 at 12:52 pm
Leave your brother ALONE! is my most common one recently. Oh. And Keep your pants up!
April 13, 2010 at 1:05 pm
Okay Peepee shaped like an ice cream cone! Bwhaha. thank goodness I had girls, I'm just not cool enough for boys:)
April 13, 2010 at 1:27 pm
Oh, too funny! Especially love the underpants at the dinner table note!!!

Stopping by from UBP! I enjoyed learning about you and visiting your site. Moms say the same thing over and over!
April 13, 2010 at 2:06 pm
lmao. Ice cream cone … really?? Little boys crack me up.
I'm heading over…
April 13, 2010 at 2:51 pm
Awesome post its today! I gave up on the underwear thing. My son went commando for about 2 years – he has finally started wearing boxer shorts again!

April 13, 2010 at 3:12 pm
Your list is seriously funny! I have four girls, so reading about boys is great!!
April 13, 2010 at 3:21 pm
So that's what it is like to have boys – hilarious!
April 13, 2010 at 4:31 pm
Hmmmm nudity problems….sounds like an interesting day!
April 13, 2010 at 4:32 pm
Those all had me laughing my ass off!! Sad that they think their peepee is shaped like an ice cream cone!!!I can't wait for my second one…. you at least have some extremely entertaining posts and super funny stories!!
magically ordinary says
April 13, 2010 at 5:00 pm
So funny! I think I have said the same things to my boys. Wait until you say "if you are going to play with your peepee, please don't do it in front of me."
April 13, 2010 at 5:09 pm
LOL…These were hilarious!
April 13, 2010 at 5:27 pm
Haha.. the joys of little boys.
April 13, 2010 at 5:32 pm
That is hilarious! Why does talking to little boys always involve poo and pee?! However, it doesn't change even when they are grown men!
April 13, 2010 at 5:47 pm
an ice cream cone huh? lol! too funny…out of the mouths of babes!
April 13, 2010 at 5:50 pm
I tell my 2 year old daughter lately that she needs to put her butt away. She loves to have it out and show it off to people… I'm a bit concerned.
April 13, 2010 at 7:22 pm
ROTFLMFAO That is HYSTERICAL!!! An ice cream cone…HA!! Haven't laughed that hard since I was a little girl! 😉 Your kids sound like they're my kids…totally random and just too funny for words! Thank you SO much for this amazing post…and I hope you don't mind if I pirate it someday. LOL

I am SO sick of hearing "mommy look!" only to turn around and seeing his little trouser garden snake hanging over the top of his undies. ugh

April 13, 2010 at 9:29 pm
Okay. Boys are WAY more entertaining. Of course, if I'm still blogging in about 10 years, I'm sure my girls as teens will give me some fun stuff. 😉

Love the one about TOES! I had to pull Sophie off of my mother's foot yesterday! She's always seeking out feet.
April 13, 2010 at 9:57 pm
LOL I've said some of those same things to my son.
April 13, 2010 at 10:14 pm
Boys are so silly…big and little! I guess this is what I have to look forward to!
April 13, 2010 at 10:30 pm

Oh the things we have to say as mothers! And I just love that little boys think they can pee anywhere…my oldest peed on someone's tire in a parking garage once.
Working Mommy says
April 14, 2010 at 2:27 pm

This is great! I did a post similar to this quite a while ago. I compiled a list after I wondered what the downstairs neighbour was thinking when he heard me YELL to my daughter, "Don't lick your brother's butt!!"
I can soo relate to "that's not your pointer finger"! Ahh, kids! 😛
