where did he come from??!!

On the way home tonight; after a very long couple of days, lots of miles and even more in gas, (hence the lack of posts this week) 'Young Squire' has what we've now dubbed an "Andrewisim." We'd been all over the state today as part of the 4-H dairy judging that the kids take part in now ans have learned so much by participating in; and dairy farms are notorious for a certain 'permeating aroma' which we don't exactly mind nor are we overly fond of... Andrew in fact relishes smelling like it. That being said he knew that a bath was in his immediate future, (and he loves baths, so I'm not sure where this came from but bare with's Andrew) he decided being ever 'resourceful' with his time decided to pull the shoulder of his shirt down and start licking himself. He smiled sheepishly at me as I looked in the rear-view not sure I was actually seeing what I was looking at and not sure I wanted to fully understand it if I did! With my face in a very screwed up and puzzled look I asked what are you doing?! With that adorable freckled nose and wonderful impish grin of his that certainly could melt the heart of even the most hardened criminal said, "I'm giving myself a human shower!" and proceeded to lick the other shoulder.

I know most people call me Twistie and for good reason, and I'm sort of known for being an oddball, but can we at least blame Ron for this one?! I don't think it's possible to have gotten all his wierdness from me!? Right?

Just a note for those of you who have stopped laughing and are now likely thinking then what happened, he stopped immediately. And yes, will be in the bathtub after this post is published and will use actual water and soap!


  1. Just one of the more interesting moments of raising boys. I had 4 of the critters and there was never a dull sane moment after age 7.

  2. How funny... I love it when kids come up with those things. And be grateful it wasn't at one of the farms surrounded by people. Then, you'd have gotten some strange (and probably sympathetic) looks.

  3. I am not taking credit and/or blame for that this! He's all you, just in a boy package!

    Resourceful as ever! Hey Andrew, if they start calling you "shine"....refers to spit!

  5. Sounds like the Andrew we all know and love!! LMBO!


So what's the view from your world about that? I'd enjoy hearing it.
