Melts In Your Mouth.

Lauren and I had one of those serious parenting discussions last night. The ones where we are not sure of what the outcome of our decisions will be. This is how the conversation went.

Lauren: If he eats his dinner I will give him hmmmndmsnnh.
Bill: What?
Lauren: Hmmmmndmsnnh!
Bill: What is Hmmmmndmsnnh?
Lauren: (Whispering) M&Ms.
Bill: Why didn’t you just say it? Oh. He knows what they are?
Lauren: After the holidays he sure knows. He was eating mouthfuls at your mom’s house.
Bill: Oh. That’s a hard.
Lauren: What is?
Bill: Hmmmmndmsnnh. (whispering) M&Ms. I mean to spell. Like we spell B.a.t.h. or w.a.l.k. How would you spell M&M’s? If you spell it, you are saying it. I mean we could spell it like Eminem. (Slim Shady) but that is too difficult. This is a tough one.

Oooh, that it a toughy. Maybe you could just call them "slim shadys."

TBG said...

LOL too funny!

Kari said...

LOL I like the slim Shady's idea Kami!

mrtl said...

Now I just have to question your sanity. You give M&Ms to the child??

Those belong in YOUR MOUTH, William and Lauren. By the handful. To munch into a gooey tar and left to melt and leave you in complete bliss. A child doesn't have the skills to properly eat M&Ms; they're swallowed whole. WASTED. And wasting chocolate? It's a sin.

Unbelievable.

How about just using C.A.N.D.Y.?
And maybe is was a result of all the M&Ms he got on vacation that caused the extended poop three times in one day?
I'm glad you had a great time visiting family. Poor Jesus, no sammich. :( But hey, he got a balloon right?!
Happy anniversary very late to the original Poop and Boogies team!

Slim Shady is freaking PERFECT! (May I have your attention please?!) I likey!

Um, but C-A-N-D-Y works, too.

How about an acronym like - SSDTMIYMANYH - slim shady delights that melt in your mouth and not your hand. That might hard to spell though. :) ec

PIG LATIN.

Tammy said...

I'm with Kami as well. Slim Shadys.

Susie said...

Ooh, can't do better than Slim Shadys. But mrtl's right, don't share candy with children. What's wrong with you people?

Susie said...

Slim shady's is great. Love that. But I'm with mrtl and the other Susie. Candy is for cramming into your mouth with your back turned. Then turning and smiling with your lips glued shut.

No matter what you call 'em, he's gonna know....
It's too late to turn back now.

Football Widow said...

Definately the slim shady's. Just don't do it out in public. Kind of sounds like some sort of illicit drug or something. But then again, isn't that what chocolate is? It should be, it's so good!

Or you could use -

em-and-ems or
m-a-n-d-m-s

tough one alright! We've found that somehow our girls have learned to comprehend some of our cryptic spellings - even though they can't read yet!

LizzieDaisy said...

Man... I will be buying slim shadys from now on. You could be starting something here!! :)

Twixie said...

ROTFL, this is too much...

Mainline Mom said...

Survey says....slim shadys.

Hmmm, my day care person, from years ago, would use the "slim shadies" as rewards for going "poop" or "pee" in the kiddy potty......Seems to work!
