A Little Awkward

The night before last, Mr. Ashley and I were "relieving some stress" (wink, wink) and not long after we finished, heard the dreaded, "Dad?"

Mr. Ashley wrapped a towel around himself and ran to the family room where he saw Big Kid.

"I couldn't sleep and I came to ask you for da rice pack, but da door was closed and I heard a lot of wigglin' and fidgetin' and what sounded like hard "O" sounds," Big Kid said with a grin and a question in his voice.

"Oh. We already packed the rice pack. Goodnight."

Way to go, Mr. Ashley. He could have at least said we were exercising or playing Jenga or something.

Thankfully, nothing was said the next morning. Let's just hope Big Kid doesn't mention it in school for some reason.

LMAO!!! I <3 Big Kid!!! Does he know anything about Hard O Sounds? He must, otherwise why would he say it with a grin??? At least he didn't just come in!!!

Ashley said...

He just knows phonics! Nothing more!

I have no idea why he was grinning, I think it must have been the idea of the wiggling and fidgeting. I don't know. It makes me laugh and cringe at the same time.

the best part is the fact that there is a label for Hard O Sounds.

brilliant.

Tooooo funny! Kids! But, you'll have one great story to share with him someday, when he's an adult! LOL! He'll cringe hearing it...believe his parents only had sex twice...for him and his brother! Blessings, Lisa

Oh, so sorry Ashley, but you know that they will be going over the alphabet at school and he will use this as an example for the Hard O sound.

hopefully he doesn't bring it up at school. hard "o"--i'm giggling.

Jennifer said...

You know he is going to totally tell that story to the bitchy mom at school, right? LOL

Caren said...

Well, at least you know his teachers are teaching him in school. He's applying his phonics knowledge to real life situations and that's always a good thing. LMAO!

Joy said...

"Now class what makes the hard "O" sound?"--Big kid raising his hand-- "yes big kid" "My mommy and daddy last night:)"

OH my this is my big fear now that our oldest is at that lots of questions stage and his room is shall we say not far enough away from ours! and that little one likes to get up and come to our room in the night unannounced

Amo said...

At least he had the decency to wait until you finished!

maisy said...

Ah, my kids told my mom they heard a woman ghost "moaning" in MY bedroom!

Maggie said...

Holly in Tampa said...

Awesome! Hopefully his next picture from won't be your bedroom door with "hard O sounds" coming out of it. You gotta love the innocence of a child though :)

hard O? WTF? It's the long O.


Kids these days.

That is too funny! I swear, in our house the kids have radar....as soon as the door closes and Mommy and Daddy start to get it on, they are either knocking or at the door for something! I'll have to make sure I don't make "hard O" sounds!
