Naked Lady

I am recording this story because it is so funny and I don't want to forget it. When we ask Tyler about his day we usually get the response of "Fine" or "I don't know". Occasionally Tyler will just start to talk and tell us stories and when he does Drew and I really listen since he normally doesn't give us a lot of information on his day at school. This was two nights ago, we just finished supper and were sitting in the living room and Tyler just started talking, without stopping to take a break. Here's how his story went:


"Today on the bus home from school I was talking to my friend...he's in like 2nd or 3rd grade I don't know, and he went to a beach over spring break in another country. Like Mexico or Canada or something. He said he was in the pool and there was a naked lady in the pool. He said she was a mom lady with real boobs, not flat ones. He said he kept following her and his dad would tell him to leave her alone and stay with him. He said she fell asleep in the pool and was just floating around and when his dad wasn't looking he swam over and touched her head. (ha, ha he is laughing pretty hard now). He said he tried to touch her back but she woke up and he swam away really quick."

(speechless, turned around trying to keep it together but laughing)

(speechless as well, but unable to hide it my mouth is open and my eyes have that stunned glazed look)

"What? It's okay mom, it wasn't like a real girl she was a mom lady. When we go to the beach this summer will there be any naked ladies there? I mean mom naked ladies?"

At this point I explained a few things to Tyler with Drew's help, but I won't get into that. I can't wait to tell him this story when he's married to a mom lady.

Today the kids had an easter egg hunt at church and had a lot of fun with that. There were over 400 eggs and the kids were split up per age group. Loralai was in the 3 and under group while Tyler was in the 4-6 group. Unfortunately, I couldn't be with Tyler while he was hunting for eggs but he seemed to do pretty well...all the kids did really since there were so many eggs! It was fun to watch Loralai hunt for eggs. She seemed to get right away what she was supposed to do. She wasn't as aggressive about it as Tyler was at this age, but she didn't shy away either. The only pictures I was able to get of Tyler after the egg hunt was of him sitting down by his basket of eggs. He stayed there for about 15 minutes until we left. I thought he felt sick, but he told me he was keeping watch over his eggs, he didn't want anyone taking them!
After lunch we came home and played with bubbles outside that the easter bunny left in their baskets. We also flew a kite which turned out to be funnier than intended. Watching Drew fly the kite combined with Loralai crying to hold the kite and Tyler kept getting caught in the kite string...Drew was getting so was so funny!
Loralai has now crashed after the sugar high and taking a nap. Tyler never seems to run out of energy and is now playing lego star wars on the Wii. We are about to play RockBand and on a side note I got 100% on the vocals(expert level) for "You Oughta Know". It's just killing Drew that I'm better at this then he is :)
