Bare bums and backseat drivers

Did I get ya with the title?

Here's two real-life incidents from this week retold with laughter for your reading pleasure.

We recently swapped the car seats over so Mylo is sitting behind the passenger seat. It's the first time he's had a clear view of what the driver is doing. And there's been some awesome back seat driving going on ever since.

Hey Mum, other hand, other hand. You're going to crash, need other hand (usually because I'm busy twirling with the other).

On Monday we took a different back route home from Karori library and I had Noah asking me:

Mum do you know where you're going? Are you sure? I don't recognise this street. How do you know where you're going? Have you been this way before?

Sheesh - if they're like this at age 2 and 5, I hate to think what they'll be like as teenagers trying to tell me how to drive!

The same night, I was upstairs having a shower with Mylo when Mark arrived home from indoor football and was also about to come upstairs to have a shower with Noah. He's usually pretty cautious about stripping off at the best of times, while I have been known to wander round pretty casually not really caring who sees what, I'm sure this has something to do with giving birth to two children and feeling like my nakedness isn't anything someone hasn't seen before!

Anyway, Mark was standing in the hallway at the bottom of the stairs, and took off his T-shirt, followed by his boxers to put in the washing basket. It was only then that out of the corner of his eye he spotted a visitor standing at the patio doors about to knock on them. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. It was the fastest dash upstairs he's ever done!

Then he made me (being only just decent having jumped out of the shower and gotten changed into my pyjamas - although wearing no bra so had to make a dash to put on a jumper first - thanks honey!) go downstairs to answer the door. It turned out to be a guy from Mercury Energy trying to sell us cheaper power. And then my two little boys came down parading around the room in all their naked glory without a care in the world.

Sheesh, he must have wondered what kind of crazy house he'd come to! 

Although he walked away with a new customer so he can't have been too unhappy, although the man of the house kept himself decidedly absent from being seen again until the coast was clear and the guy had left such was his profound embarrassment at showing his bare bum to a stranger.

Hee hee!
