Dinner at our House

Lori often talks about her dinner conversation with her boys on her blog. If you haven't already, you should go check it out because she's hilarious! I love her and her boys.

We also have odd dinnertime interactions - but ours are more of the interactive variety. At least lately they are. A couple months ago we were having some conversation at dinner when MM made the girl laugh so hard she shot water out of her nose. Since then it's become a game for them to see what else she can shoot out her nose.

So far she's done:

  • Water
  • Juice
  • Milk
  • Apricots (sadly this happened at school and MM didn't get to see)

MM calls this game, "What Can The Girl Shoot Out Her Nose?". He also plays, "What Will Fat Boy Eat?" with our chubby dog, Chewy. You know, in case you were wondering.

The other night at the dinner table we started talking about something and TG snorted. This apparently reminded MM of his game. He waited until we were almost finished with dinner, then caught TG just as she took a drink. Then he whipped around in his chair (he sits at the head of the table and she sits on his left) and looked at her with this really creepy face he has (I made him recreate it for me so I could so you..creepy, isn't it?) with his fingers steeped - Mr. Burns style.

As soon as she saw him The Girl snorted and a stream of Egg Nog shot out her nose. A stream, people. This is what I have to deal with. Welcome to my own personal form of hell.

Although..It was pretty funny. Afterward she laughed so hard she cried while I took pictures and Little Man and MM made jokes. MM is still really pleased with himself. Last night we had pasta for dinner and he tried to talk her into seeing if she could shoot a pasta noodle out her nose. She refused, thank goodness. I kind of have to wonder how long it'll be before it happens, though.

My sister successfully shot milk out her nose once when we were little. I was quite proud of her as the younger sibling. I admit I thought it was gross at first though when the boy that taught her did it first. Boys were already ichy eeew anyway.

Your crazy family is hilarious lol. :D

LOL - just thinking about that egg nog makes my nose hurt! :)

And to think you were all hot for him.

Yeah, it's definitely fun to do stuff to your kids, but to try to get a noodle to shoot out your nose? OK, that's just gross.

I've definitely had stuff shoot out my nose at the dinner table, but not on purpose. Just cause they seem to get such pleasure out of waiting till I take a drink before they start up. Brats.
