My charming quirks!

As the title implies, this post is all about me!
Quelle surprise!
…and my adorable habits.

You’ll see.
By the end of this post, you’ll be like, “She IS fucken cute!”

1.  Everytime I walk by the full length mirror in my bedroom, I lift my top and stare at my stomach…
…Of course you think I’m checking out my abs.
I’m not.
I have a mole that I’m freakishly obsessed with.

…But since I’m standing there anyway, I like to flex.

2.  Feces and vomit don’t bother me one bit.
I can be elbow deep in shit, no problem!
Vomit! Bring it on!
But if one of my kids shows me a lose tooth, I’m like, “Gross! Teeth guts!”

3.  Anytime my husband walks in on me when I’m naked, I will ask him, “Do you think I’m fat?”
After 9 years together, he has officially run out of clever ways to answer, “You’re not.”
He no longer answers at all.

4.  I LOVE the word ‘vagina.’
Why, you ask?
Why not!
What’s not to love!
It’s a fun word. It’s a fun body part. And it’s cute too. Totally non-threatening.

5. I cry when I get bad grades in school.

…Then I come home and make my kids do the housework.

6.  I never outgrew my naps as a baby.

6.  I don’t like talking to my husband after 7pm.

This picture was taken before 7pm.

    Teeth guts? You know, I never knew what to call that soft spot after the tooth fell out and it felt all gummy. Now I know.

    And you're right. It's pretty gross.

    Why would you ask if you're fat? You're nothing like fat.

    Ha ha ha! I cry if I get a bad grade too. That's the real reason I refuse to even consider going back to school. The next time you get a bad grade, keep this in mind. Back in the day, I flunked a test to become a McDonald's manager. Had to take it twice! It really doesn't get worse than that. I have no idea how I got a degree.

    I always suck in my tummy when I'm looking in the mirror while changing for bed. Not that I'm chubby, but after two kids the tummy–she ain't what she used to be. So I totally get the looking.

    Love your quirks! I have a saliva issue. I even vomit when I'm brushing my own teeth cuz the saliva gets all foamy and..I'm gonna stop there before I vomit.

    I looove the word vagina. I also like the word dildo.

    If I had your flat abs…I would be checking them out too. Teeth gross me out more than I can say. I can't even stand to watch them wiggle their teeth.

    I can one up you on the crying on bad grades in school. When I was in college and I had to sign up for a class that I *thought* I would get a bad grade in, I would cry my eyes out filling out the form, and turning in my registration and usually on the first few days of class. Then when the report card came and if I got anything less than an A, I would go into a pretty crazy depression for a few weeks. (For the record, I somehow managed go graduate with a 3.8 GPA)

  14. Rebecca
    March 18, 2011 | 2:08 am

    ….and the nap thing. The only reason I don't nap now is because my kids are evil spawns that don't let me sleep. Once they start napping again (teens?), I will totally start sleeping 12 hours at night and taking a 2 hour siesta daily.

    I don't even want to know what you check out when you look in that mirror above your bed. Oh, wait…your vagina! DUH!

    I'm exactly the opposite with the grossness. Teeth don't bother me. Well, not as much as they used to. I can't pull a loose one out or anything, but we lose a LOT of teeth in 1st grade (3 this week alone!) so I've just gotten used to it.

    Now vomit? That's a WHOLE different story all together. I do NOT do vomit!!! The ex moved out before my son was 2, but for his entire childhood, anytime he vomited, even if it was the middle of the night, I called the ex to come deal with it because I just could NOT handle it. Just thinking about it would make me start to heave. Hell, I'm starting to heave now just typing about it!! The ex even came a couple of times because I was the one vomiting. Nice, right?

    Apparently, your husband doesn't require any dirty talk when you two are bumping uglies, huh? Well, unless you get it done before 7, that is. ;-)

    March 18, 2011 | 2:28 am

    cute huh, ok I'll take your word for it. Just so you know, I pass on the shit and vomit. I thought my children from a young age to vomit in the toilet, so I outgrew the shit and vomit pretty early.

    Enjoy the rest of your week.
    Hope to see you via comment by my place.

    stay happy…

    And also? If I had that bod, I'd be checking myself out too.

    1. I was shocked you wrote a blog about yourself.
    2. I was equally shocked that you have a gross mole.
    3. I love vagina too
    4. I wish my wife didn't talk to me after 7PM
    5. I love how I turned this into a blog about me.
    6. I love how you have two number 6's

    I don't like talking to my husband this week!

    I'm happy to read #3 and have you shoot down some comedian who says thin women never ask if they look fat.

    I love how you are uniquely you.

    I think you're Fucking Cute even before I read your posts. You are. You and hubby make a nice looking couple. I bet you guys laugh a lot! We do here. It's the best part of our relationship. The laughter! (Well, and the great sex too)

    I've never heard the term “teeth guts” before! Ha! How fitting! I'm channeling my inner “Sandra” in hopes of obtaining your long legs! Nope, not working, still got the tree stumps!!! Damn you!!! lol

    March 18, 2011 | 3:54 am

    “Teeth Guts” ewwww I never realized before how gross that was….but now that I think about it, the name fits.

    I love the word vagina too! It is a great word….why people are so intimidated by that word, I will never understand. But no cutesy euphanisms for me.

  30. dddiva
    March 18, 2011 | 4:17 am

    I had to learn to deal with gross stuff (and I still suck at it) but really, feet gross me out probably more than anything, and everyone says I have cute feet. *rolls eyes*

    hahaha running out of ways to say you don't look fat- I love asking that- well when I am feeling fat I don't but mostly I love asking but I'm a major dork like that.

    You are adorable!

    Awe now see that's where we're different, I love to pull teeth, only if my kids would have let me. The would see me coming and take off in the other direction. I've even attempted it while they were sleeping..

    I refuse to talk to anyone before 7am. It's a mess of grunts, hisses, and low, threatening growls.

    i like loose teeth so much that i even pulled out my baby cat's loose tooth. and saved it in a box with my daughter's old teeth. we're not weird or anything.
    and i like the word vagina too. but even more when it's surrounded by the words “spicy” and “bubble”. because nothing's funnier or more descriptive than a spicy vagina bubble.

  38. Sarah
    March 18, 2011 | 5:56 am

    I have been thinking what to call the lady bits, for when my daughter is a bit older…and decided to call everything what it is. That way she is ahead of the rest of her classmates when they do anatomy ;) nothing wrong with vagina!

    Naps…I love them! I need them! My daughter is being horribly evil. She waits until I think she is napping and I start drifting off to get up and run around! Dammit kid! Take a fucken nap while the baby is! Mama would be so much happier :)

    So what do you do after 7? I don't like to talk before 7…no 8…make that 9 am! In fact, I'm pretty sure I am not capable of talk; just grunts and groans!

  39. Jessica
    March 18, 2011 | 6:03 am

    I don't like to talk to my husband (or anyone else) before 9am. Very suprising that puke and poop don't bother you but teeth guts do.

    Just don't name a child “vagina” LOL!!

    Teeth guts.. FUNNY!!

    I'm sure he's OK not using the English language after 7 as long as body language is sometimes still available!! BAHAHA!!!

    Yes, you are adorably cute. ;p

    Funny word, vagina… I was watching Canada AM this morning and Jeff was reading the weather and he came to Regina and, even though I've heard this a MILLION ZILLION times I still think “Regina Vagina” and wonder if people who live there want to change the name and laugh uproariously.
    It never gets old….

  45. Deborah
    March 18, 2011 | 11:53 am

    I do the same thing when I walk by a mirror except I'm sucking it in so I don't think I'm such a fatty.

    My wasband used to HATE it when I used the word vagina with our daughters. “Can't you say something else???” Hence the was in wasband. Or at least one reason. Ha . . .

    March 18, 2011 | 1:35 pm

    Loose teeth totally freak me out, too. My kids ask me to feel how loose their teeth are, and I pucker up my face, close my eyes, feel it and then promptly withdraw my hand, screaming “Oh my God! It's moving! I felt it move!”
    Maybe it's a nurse thing.

  60. Julianna
    March 18, 2011 | 6:17 pm

    Teeth guts… yeah gross.

    And Almost And I just swing the other way on the fat thing…

    Me: “What are you thinking for dinner?”
    Him: “Are you calling me fat?”

    Him: “It's a really nice day out, let's take the kids for a walk to get ice cream”
    Me: “Why do we have to walk? are you calling me fat?”

    Me: “Really? The hamper's 2 feet away, you couldn't have put your clothes in it?”
    Him “I think you're calling me fat AND lazy.”

    Him: “Guess what I did?”
    Me: “a sit up?”

    Okay, maybe the last one I was calling him fat…

    It goes without saying that your quirks are beyond precious. But I'm jealous…and having a difficult time getting past the fact that you get like a BAJILLION comments to “I like to flex”. Although perhaps it's more in response to the part about your cute vagina. That sounds about right.

  66. Nari
    March 18, 2011 | 7:26 pm

    You're right. You really ARE cute. The way you feel about loose teeth is the way I feel about anything having to do with eyeballs. I don't gross out easily but my family knows they can easily coerce me into anything by folding their eyelid up or threatening to touch their eyeball. * shivers*
