    LMFAO @ butt nugget, that is now officially my new favourite saying, and I will be using it in everyday conversation (while checking to see if son one and two are listening).

    But REALLY??? Can I honestly not expect my life to get any easier, like, at ALL? I was hanging out for the teenage years when they stay in bed all day (no more night waking, yay) can get their own food (meaning no more thankless cooking for me. But not doing the dishes to chase the dog? Hadn’t thought of that), and I hereby promise that the first time either child says something embarrassing when too old to get away with it because they are little and cute I will instantly and without any guilt whatsoever start wearing my bra on the outside of my clothes in public and start hitting on their friends, ha. Teach them to embarrass me at the shops!

    LOL @Beth – butt nugget is an actual term Junior whispered at 3. And 4. And 5. And…you get the picture. Whenever he said it, I had to do a quick look away so he wouldn’t see me laugh.

    Sadly, it doesn’t get easier. Oh, there’s this brief period at about 11 where they like you and still think you are smart – but once they hit the teen years you become a full-fledged idiot and they regress to a 3 year old. But don’t worry. You don’t have to wear your bra outside your clothes to embarrass Sons 1 and 2. Just the mere act of drawing breath while their friends can see is humiliating enough for them :)
