Rhyme Time – Mommy Brain

I am not sure if today’s post is really a mommy brain moment, but it is definitely one of my more embarrassing mommy moments…

Over the last couple of weeks, my son has become a bit obsessed with rhyming. When I say “a bit”, I mean we rhyme all the time…car rides, dinner time, play time, it is constant. Sometimes it is real words, sometimes he just makes them up.  There are times where it is cute (singing songs to his sister making her name the focus on rhymes), and times where it gets a little frustrating (stomping around the bathroom saying “see me pee, yippee”).

I really choose my words carefully depending on his rhyming mood.  I have learned that when I say “see that deer”, his response will be “it wants a beer” or “we have to get your sister in the shopping cart”, the response is “where she will fart”.

With all of this in mind, we head to school drop off…we have a very set routine for our morning drop offs – first we bring my daughter to her class, she gives us one kiss each, and happily runs off with her teacher to have breakfast, never turning back. I then bring my son to his class, where he is usually overly mushy with goodbyes. On this particular morning, it was us, the mom who makes pinterest breakfasts for her daughter every morning and just oozes perfection, and another little boy and his mom. My son was insisting upon multiple hugs and kisses (which I never turn down), and ended with an “I love you, Mommy”…whenever he says I love you, my response is “I love you more”. Now I should have known because we had rhymed the entire way to school that morning, and really, there are a lot of words that rhyme with more that he KNOWS (um, core, four, bore, chore, i could name a ton…)…but his response, clear as day, which made the other 2 moms and his teacher stare at me with mouths that dropped to the floor was “I love you, wh^&*.” (this is a family friendly site, use your imagination!)

And this was me…left trying to explain our rhyming games, and that he makes up words and does not know what the word actually means, and would not call his mom that…

Too funny! I’m sure the teachers understood and they probably got a good laugh out of it too!

Visiting via Sitsgirls! (And I’m going to blogher too! First time and I’m nervous!) - June 2, 2012 - 10:07 am

Had to laugh because it sounded like something my son would have done. He embarrassed me MANY times while he was growing up. Actually my daughter did a few times, too. One time at the grocery store there was a woman ahead of us with a LOT of cleavage showing. I mean a lot. My daughter, who was probably 5 at the time, said loudly: “Mom, why is that lady’s crack showing?” I was SO embarrassed.

As far as the rhyming, maybe your son will be the next Dr. Seuss.

By the way, visiting from SITS.

LOL! That is to funny! Kids seriously say the funniest things! I would have had rosy cheeks too though!

Stopping by SITS sharefest, and this is hilarious! Maybe your perfect Pinterest mom friend can get some inspiration and make rhyming word breakfasts for her perfect daughter! 😉 I am impressed that your son knows how to rhyme. My daughter, let’s just say, does not.

Heather - June 2, 2012 - 3:38 pm

That’s priceless! The pinterest moms are why I now steer clear of the classroom!

Michelle - June 2, 2012 - 8:23 pm

So funny. I love these moments, at the end of the day. It is sometimes great to laugh at the end of the day when these moments have passed!

Jamie Knupp - August 9, 2012 - 12:18 pm

oh no! That is hilarious! One of those moments where you wish you could just disappear lol. Just be comforted by the fact that you didn’t say “I love you, Huck?”

Laura - August 9, 2012 - 6:17 pm

This is absolutely hysterical! I am still laughing.

Jelli - August 9, 2012 - 10:23 pm

This is by far the funniest post I’ve read all day, and trust me, co-hosting this mixer with you, I’ve read my fair share of posts. I can just imagine your expression when he came up with this line. Priceless, I’m sure. Following you now…and still giggling. (Read this to the hubs too. He laughed.)

Kiim@Co-Pilot Mom - November 13, 2012 - 7:59 am

Oh, the things children say sometimes. Funny how something as simple as a little rhyming game can cause such embarrassment!

Sheila Skillingstead - November 13, 2012 - 9:40 am

Definitely a made for memory moment. Loved the post. Enjoy your SITS Day.

Kristin - November 13, 2012 - 11:12 am

BAHAHAHAHA isn’t is amazing how, if you go through enough sound blends, a made-up word will actually be a real one? And they’re never, ever a silly one.

Britton - November 13, 2012 - 11:23 am

LOL! I would have DIED! I could imagine the look on your face and the thoughts running through the other mom’s faces! I would have TOTALLY judged!

Tricia - November 13, 2012 - 11:45 am

Oh my goodness! Oh the things little ones say – and always at the most inopportune times!
