Inside Tommy's Closet

I managed to get some good photos of Tommy. This doesn’t happen often.

Tommy is sporting a shirt from Crazy 8.

And a rose lollipop that I thought could be used as a fun prop.

I handed it to Tommy and he was like, “What do I do with this?”

“You smile with it,” I suggested.



So he did.

Then he was like, “What if I close my eyes?”



“If that’s what you want to do, Tommy.”

“What if I want to act mad?”



“Go ahead.”

“I pledge allegiance, to my rose lollipop!”



“Great, Tommy.”

“Mommy? This lollipop doesn’t smell good.”

“Fine, you can put it down. Can I have a nice smile?”



“Er...with your eyes opened, Tommy?”





“Very cute.”

“I’m pretending to be an old man thinking.”



“Okay? How about you give me smiles again? Think about…farts.”



And then he started to think, “Man, my Mom is nuts. But at least she lets me talk about farts unlike my weird friend’s parents who claim that farts are an inappropriate subject matter.”







Yeah. We’re a family who laughs at inappropriate things.

And Tommy loves it.

  1. Farts. Works on my kids every time.

    And the "Old Man Thinking" is spot on.

    Love these!

  2. great photos....FART! Love it. Some words will always be silly. Like bellybutton.

    PS - there is nothing cuter than a kid without his two front teeth. Glad you captured that moment :)

    You and your husband seriously make beautiful kids. You could sell embryos and make bank or something.

    Annnnd -- yes, the eight-year-old-boy-humour gland is alive and well in me too.

    Farts.
    Fart.
    Farts.

    The word itself makes me grin. I wish it found itself in more conversations...

  17. These are awesome photos! What a cutie!

    And mentioning the word "farts" works every time with my kids, too. The next best thing? Making fart noises while snapping the photos. It cracks them up!

  20. We have wars in our house. My 6-year-old informed me the other day that popcorn makes the best farts (loudest and longest) but eggs make the stinkiest ones (usually silent-but-deadly). Little boys are so much fun!

  25. I have to admit, prior to being a mom i didn't think farts would ever be an appropriate subject matter...now i have two boys and i'm usually the ringleader of such inappropriate subjects lol


    and btw, tommy is absolutely adorable :)

  26. Tommy should be a model!! He's adorable :)

    PS-- I want that tee shirt!!

  27. You need to download the iFart app if you have a smartphone!! It works like a charm! I especially like the "Dirty Raoul" ;)

    You can also set the phone up to fart when the next person moves it... could be amusing!

  32. Those are great shots of a very cute kid! I gotta say, though, that first shot is perfect. The t-shirt tie and the popsicle rose make him the perfect kid suitor!
