The Talent is Staggering!

Last night, in an effort to delay the bedtime routine, Bub decided to share his new talent with us. We already knew he was an expert at the armpit farts, but he wanted to show us that he could do it with the back of his knee as well! Sis told him that he should do it for our church kids' talent show this year. He then told us that his REAL talent was to do a whole song with armpit farts (I don't let them say the word "fart," but armpit "toots" don't have the same effect!).

So, he "played" us a song, and I IMMEDIATELY guessed "Mary had a little lamb." He then moved on to "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star."

Not to be left out, Sis then whistled a lovely tune of "Jesus Love Me."

That was all they could showcase before Don and I made them go to bed... they were quite amused with themselves, though!

Speaking of talents, Sis and I were in a ladies' clothing store at the mall over the weekend, and she started explaining that since everyone had a different "body type" (her words, not mine), then some clothes were more appropriate than others for people to wear. After I agreed with her, she went on: "Like your dress you have on, for example, Mom. It's probably not the best one for your body type, because it makes you little a little bit fat." And you know, she was right in that it wasn't the most flattering cut! What a talent of artistic ability and honesty all in one! :D

No worse than those two little girls who belched their way through Take Me Out to the Ballgame on America's Got Talent!

Out of the mouths of babes...and I'm sure she wasn't trying to be rude or hurtful. She is going to be a fashion designer one day, I just know it!

You should post a video of their special talents! CJ has said similar things to me that would make me cry if a grown-up said them, but she just calls 'em like she sees 'em. I agree that Sis will probably be a fashion designer (or something similar) someday. She is amazing. I'm sure Hudson's armpit farts are amazing, too. :)

Oh, I was totally NOT offended by what Sis said! In fact, I told her that I had just seen a picture of me in the same dress, and I agreed! Too bad it's so comfortable!!! Yup, when two of her favorite shows are Project Runway and Tim Gunn's Guide to Style, I know I've got problems! lol.
