Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


My anthem

I've always joked that the boys in Queen wrote this song for me. Friday night, I had this exchange with my 5-year-old daughter.

Little Bit: *dancing around naked after her bath* I have a cute little butt!
AoM: yes you do.
Little Bit: You don't, though, cuz your butt is big like this *gesturing to really wide*
AoM: Some people think my butt looks pretty good.
Little Bit: Well, not me. Your butt isn't little and cute like this *turning to show me*

*shaking my head*
At least she's confident, if not tactful.

    LOL.Out of the mouths of babes. Reminds me of myself just a couple years older when we were driving my aunt to the airport. Gleefully I stated "Yay! I get my room back!" I only remember it because Dad gave me a "look" that could kill. That's when I learned the meaning of tact.

    BTW, I think the only butt that Freddie Mercury wouldn't have found fat is this gal's (it's clothed, but the 'mmercial itself is a strong PG-13).

    On behalf of AoD and myself, prepare an ivory tower in which to lock Princess Li'l Bit upon the occasion of her first period.
