I can't help but notice the possible coincidence between this post and the new header. ;) Not that there's anything wrong with squishy...OR chocolate!

*considers making a "truth hurts" comment, but is distracted by a toy turtle*

Platypus said...

Ah, kids, don't you just love 'em?! And they wonder why we take every opportunity to embarrass them in front of their friends...

Circus Kelli said...

Eclectic - It's a vicious circle of chocolatey squishiness.

Mr. B - Nice turtle.

Platypus - I do love 'em. That's why they still live here. :)

Sharkey said...

That is too funny! Sorry for laughing at your expense.

On another note . . . I'm wondering what the font is in your header. It's so cute! Are you willing to share its name and/or where you got it?

Brudder doug said...

Hee, hee, not even going to venture to guess which one said it first, but am willing to bet it became a chorus for a time.
Reminds me of the time one of our daughters at the age of six came in from playing outside and said, "I know where cousins come from." What made it bad was that she shouted the punch line at the top of her voice. (although she didn't know the meaning yet) . . . . . A living room of church friends was the audience.

Lynn said...

Okay, then!! Check this -- one day last spring we took the kids to the beach. We all wore swim suits. I have, um... small ones, if you know what I mean. My husband is trying lose weight. One of the twins killed us both with one stone when she said, "God, Mom. Your boobs are almost as big as Daddy's!" A ten year-old made us self-conscious for weeks!! Yes, it's a good thing they're cute. Wait till she finds out that boob size can be hereditary.

WILLIAM said...

It's like Charmin.

WILLIAM said...

I love the new look.

Circus Kelli said...

Brudder - That would be Sweet Pea. Thankfully, the other clowns were still sleeping when she said it.

William - That it is... and thank you for your comment on the design.

Lynn - Oy.

The Kept Woman said...

Leave it to your friggin' kids (who probably MADE your butt squichy while you were pregnant) to point that shit out.

LadyBug said...

Hee!

LOVE the new layout...but it sure is making me hungry!

Nilbo said...

I think William was commenting on both the design of your blog and the design of your butt, there, Squishy.

Laura said...

laughing at William's comment...
and I love the new look!!!

Circus Kelli said...

TKW - I can neither confirm nor deny the squishiness that may or may not have existed before my children were born.

Ladybug - Me too!

Nilbo - Yes. I know.

Laura - William is funny, iddin he?

Effie said...

mmmmmmmmmm, chocolate...did you have your chocolate yesterday? Chocolate Tuesday, you know...

Arlene said...

When I was pregnant with my son, my almost 4 year old daughter told me "Wow Mom, you're butt's wide!" Yeah, love her ;-)

Ortizzle said...

LOVE the new page. I agree with Sharkey, too: nice font (reminds me of a slightly elongated version of Curlz MT). (The quote in the byline sounds familiar, too, heh,heh!)

Squishiness: Yeah. O.K. If it's any consolation, squishy is far preferable to saggy. I will never forget the time my mother confessed that she felt really elated one day when she looked in the mirror and her butt didn't look as fat. Until she realized that it wasn't because she'd lost weight; it was just that everything had gone south.

Aging is such fun. Sigh. (Pass the chocolate.)

Annejelynn said...

yes, I think I've been told something quite similar as to the texture of my own behind... something about it's width being greater than his father's

wordgirl said...

If one of my kids told me I had a squishy butt...I'd probably just head for the nearest bar and set up a tent. Love the new blog look. Where on earth did you get the new background pattern? It's scrumptious!

Circus Kelli said...

Wordgirl - I made the new background.

Annejelyn - The boy has told me I have a big butt...

Ortizzle - Pass the chocolate, indeed! Cheers!

Arlene - My oldest child burst into the bathroom as I was stepping into the shower (8 months pregnant with her sister) and was literally struck dumb when she saw my belly. I'm not sure which is better.

Effie - This blog design was inspired by Chocolate Tuesdays. :)

Hathornefer said...

I dont suppose telling them that some animals eat their offspring will help much - even if you say it will be easier to eat your them if you cover them in chocolate first.

Bless the squishy marshmellowy chocolaty offspring - for they know not what they say. (Until they ask for pocket money - at which point you find they have surveyed 100 of their closest friends)

Now where is my jar of Nutella?

Circus Kelli said...

Hathornefer - Thanks for stopping by and commenting! "Bless the squishy marshmellowy chocolaty offspring" -- Amen. :)
