The truth about Smartmouth

Finally back to reality. It has been a month of choas and basketball...seriously how do people run kids around to three different sports and still manage life. Actually it has been kind of nice not running to my computer and thinking of stuff to say. Bu there I am again to impart another great family story.

So the other night thad and I sat down to play a new game with the kids...Smartmouth. We divided up into teams syd/dad...noah/me to play this spelling game. You are given two letters that signify the beginning and ending of the word that needs to be spelled and you think of as many as you can. I realized about half way through noah did not have a chance to was hard to think under pressure and have a really cool word. Sydnie did great, she slammed about a bunch of words and of course thad came up with some really creative ones as well. It was late in the game and the next two letters to come up are P,P. Sydnie immediately yells out POP. I being the swanky mom that I am, turn to noah and whisper in his ear to yell POOP and noah being the boy that he is yells with all his might "POOOOOPPPPP!!!!! Needless to say we won that round...good stuff.
