Keep in mind this is my "Keeping It Real" post, so I am going to be embarassingly honest. After we ate some watermelon I said,"Oh, my belly feels like it is gonna burst!". Then, I burped! As soon as I burped Sahara let out a burp! Savannah burst out laughing! And yes, we know that is gross, but somehow burping is cute when babies are involved.
A few moments later I realized Savannah (8 y) had paint on her shirt, so I told her to wash it off in the kiddie pool (bending over it). She decided that was not working, so she stripped her shirt off and continued playing! Yes, out in the backyard for all to see. Caden was already completely nude and splashing around in the pool. I said, "Savannah, aren't you worried about being shirtless?" She shrugged her shoulders and simply said, "Redneck" as she hopped on her bike and laughed.
Hmmm... Did I mention watermelon WAS lunch?!!! Well, an hour later we had a regular lunch, but we were all content with the idea of WATERMELON being lunch!!
And one more thing... a couple of month's ago we tore our dryer apart thinking we were going to fix it. Well, that did not quite work out and we bought a new one. So, I told my husband to let the kids play with the dryer drum (the round part that spins the clothes ... or in our case it spins our kids ... Hehehe). They rolled all over the house like little hamsters until we got aggravated with stumbling over the huge thing. Then, we took it outside for them to roll it around in the yard. Thinking of the tire swing theory I said something about it making a cool swing. One thing led to another and before I knew it there was dryer drum hanging from a tree in our backyard!!! Our kids and all their buddies had the best time. It was like a ride at a fair. We worked it over and broke the rope 2 or 3 times, so it is out of commission until we fix it. In it's place for the time being is another redneck "swing" that I scored at the beach compliments of Hurricane Ike. It is a huge knotted up rope my husband hung from the tree.
I would NEVER consider myself a Redneck, but I have to admit it might seem that way... ;0 (Uh-hem... don't look at the way my kids are dressed... hmmm.. looking a bit redneck! ;0 )
