Monkey Minute: *Snort* edition, Daffy / Duckalicious style




In honor of Daffy over at Batcrap Crazy, who lost her beloved Big Sis last week,
we give you today's Monkey Minute!

1 - Do you *snort*?
Um, yes. More often than I care to admit. It runs in the family.

2 - Our friend, has a nickname and it's Daffy.  What's your nickname?
The only one I've ever really had is "Ernie." My brother, Mark, dubbed me so when he was young and couldn't pronounce Erin properly. But many hours watching Sesame Street taught him the next best thing. Thankfully I'm not orange with an annoying yellow friend named Bert.

3 - Do you know sign language?
Only if you count giving the bird....

4 - What's a sample convo from your hood?

Izzy: Daddy, what's that you're wearing?
Daddy: It's a sport coat.
Izzy: Do you go sporting in it?
************
(during potentially last group shower, taken recently)
Abby: Daddy, what's that?
Daddy: That's my penis, that is what Daddy uses to go potty.
Abby: Why don't I have a penis?
Daddy: Because you have a vagina. Girls have vaginas.
Abby: But will I grow a penis when I get older?


5-  Do you sleep with electronic devices - i.e. laptop, Blackberry, iPhone, etc?
No, although Hubs frequently complains that I am attached to my laptop. I don't have a Blackberry. I only recently upgraded from a flip-top cell phone that couldn't even text efficiently. No iPhone, either. No iPad. And I barely know how to work my iPod. That about covers it. *snort*

Mad Woman said...

Yeah that's about when group showers quit happening in our house too. Hahahah!

RN Mama said...

Bahaha! I almost choked on my coffee when I was reading the shower conversation! My girls have asked about penises, and my Mom was the one who broke it to them that their Dad had one:)

Tracie said...

LOL! Love the penis convo.

Hope you have a fabulous Monday!

Lee said...

Great post, Ernie!

BigSis said...

The girls in the shower - BWA HA HA! We have the opposite in our house. My son asks why "it" sticks up sometimes. My only answer is "ask your grandpa."

Daffy said...

snorting is genetic? Geez...never knew that...

Thank you Erin.

leigh said...

Ah...the penis conversation. It's opposite over here. Griffin recently asked me why my peanuts (That what he calls his man business) don't dangle.

5thsister said...

true conversation after my daughter, when she was younger, overheard her father and I through the bedroom door (the little sneak!)

Daughter: Mommy, why was Daddy breathing so hard last night?

Me: Oh honey, he was just doing his exercises.

Daughter: What kind of exercises?

Me: Push ups!

Bwaa ha ha ha ha!

Love it!!! We have family showers too and the way it's going looks like Bear will be retiring sooner than later- yesterday he was more than obsessed with my boob anatomy. Sorry honey, but now that we're done nursing these girls are off limits! It's been almost a 1/2 year and he still seems sad to say goodbye to them- poor guy!

The Random Blogette said...

I love the shower convo!!! Peanut hasn't really noticed the difference yet, but she did ask me about the hair down there once. That was fun...

The Boob Nazi said...

I snort all the time!

Steph said...

HAHAHAHHAHAHA! That shower conversation is the best!

When my now 10 1/2 year old was 2, he was in the bathroom with his daddy...I was laying in bed. Our son said, "Daddy, when I grow up am I going to have fur like you?"

I love kids!!!

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Seriously!? Am I the only one who doesn't give the Bird? I need to start using that more often!!

Matty said...

LOL, I know that sign language too. And gotta love that conversation with the kids. They're so innocent. Have a great day Ernie.

Salt said...

I had a friend named Erin when I was younger that we called Ernie!

I snort all the time too. I'd love to know which relative I inherited it from.

SuziCate said...

some of the convos we've had while our kids were young and curious are the funniest ever! Thanks for the chuckle!

Quirkyloon said...

*snort*

I snort too!

You so fonny, Ernestina!

Can I call you that? Kidding!

Ian said...

LMAO @ Abby that was hilarious!

purseblogger said...

Oh man, that was hilarious!

Helene said...

OMG, I love the conversation in the shower! We had a conversation similar to that recently, only it wasn't in the shower. Tim had come downstairs naked after a shower, looking for some clean clothes in the laundry room (as if, right?) and the kids were shocked that he had a penis.

I was like, "Well, sure Daddy has one. He's a male, isn't he?"

Bella said, "Yeah, but his is way bigger than Garrett, Landon and Cole's...like REALLY big".

Tim was all smiles until I reminded him that it wasn't much of a compliment, being that he was being compared to a couple 3-year olds and a 5-year old.

I need to go back and read your brother's posts when I get some time later today!

DaisyGal said...

the shower conversation was hilarious, I mean she must really WANT one :)

this post made me laugh and even snort...A little. :)

Aging Mommy said...

Fabulous as always - love the girls' conversations with Daddy, just priceless. With you all the way on lack of gadgets, I haven't even got an iPod yet and still have my ancient pay as you go do nothing but take a call phone.

MiMi said...

What a strange combo: Erin's familial traits...Great writing and Snorting. LOL

The Blue Zoo said...

Ha ha! Just wait til Abby shares that bit of info with total strangers at the most inappropriate time.

Nancy C said...

My son saw a friend of his get changed awhile back.

"Where's her penis, Mommy?"

"Well, she doesn't have one."

He shook his head back and forth, "That's so, so sad..."

Dee said...

I've had my Ipod touch for over a year now and I still can't figure out how to work it "right!"

Mindy said...

Now I will think of you as Snortin' Ernie. jk Love reading your convos. Happy Monday!

Elaine A. said...

Did you reassure Abby that she will NOT be growing a penis any time soon? WHEW! ;)

Love your snort at the end...

Joann Mannix said...

My daughter to the grocery store cashier, "My mom has hair on the front part of her butt."

Yes, she did.

And I'm the biggest snorter in town.

Babes Mami said...

Well Ernie, Abby is hilarious without trying! Everytime I change Babe at my sisters my neice says 'Afaniel (she's 4 its better then anl which was his name last year)is a boy and then she giggles' It's great.

The Robin's Nest said...

Hilarious!

When she was about 3 my daughter walked in on her dad going to the bathroom standing up. I think it was the first time she ever realized he went to the bathroom differently than me.

Here: "Daddy, why are you squeezing your tail?"

Clearly it was time to have a talk with the kid about anatomy.

His response? "Go ask your mother."

MEN.

{Kimber} said...

I'm a snorter too!! hehe
*snort*

Michelle Pixie said...

I am pretty sure we had almost the exact convo in the shower that brought our group showers to a halt as well. *snort*

Casey @ If The Crown Fits said...

Love the convos!

Mrsblogalot said...

LOL! That was great Erin!!!

You did tell Abby not to worry right? (-:

blueviolet said...

Now that you mention it, I think I've heard you snort before in a vlog! :)

Joey @ Big Teeth and Clouds said...

This reminds me that I haven't snorted in a while. Are the people around me suddenly less funny?

Much More Than Mommy said...

The Husband stopped letting the girls take showers w/him when they each asked about his penis. Coward. :-D

Annah said...

That first question should be rephrased. I was like "Do you snort what?" and you said "Yeah, I do, runs in the family", and I'm all like "What kind of mommy blog is THIS?" lol

Anastasia said...

Ma What's 4 dinner said...

Do you go sporting in it??? I'm dying, that's so funny! And please, please don't grow a penis! :) There's more than enough of those around!

Lots of yummy love,
