My 6 year old grandson recently spent some time at my house with my 12 and 16 year olds listening to music – maybe not the best idea in retrospect. So he says to his mother, “At Nana’s we listened to a song about big fat butts. What does he mean when he says you know what to do with that big fat butt? What does she do with it mom?”.
My daughter said she almost passed out.
I, however, laughed so hard I couldn’t breathe and am still giggling about it.
To fully understand why I find humor in it, you should know that my daughter was THE BIGGEST instigator of bad behavior in her younger siblings. So this incident is actually her own fault – at least thats my theory.
I have to say that there is no greater pleasure than watching your children parent their children. Not only have I dealt with the inevitable “I’ll never do or say _______ to my child” statement but because there is a gap in age between the first two kids and the second two, I’ve had to deal with the older girls trying to parent the younger boys WITH me – which, to me, at times has been more frustrating than co-parenting with my ex.
So now, my reward for making it (almost) through all of that is I get to watch as my daughters parent their kids. I am blessed (and amused almost daily)!!!!
Karma at its best!
Have a joyful day!
