Scarlett or Bo for short! She's 7, sassy, outgoing, cute as a button and has a passion for a few very select food groups! Finally we have our littlest princess, who has blessed us with her presence until it's time to go home. She's 1 and the happiest little baby around! She loves clapping, snuggling, shaking her head no, and laughing at her sisters! She's incredibly smart and uses sign language to communicate most of her needs until she learns to use her big girl words. We are loving on her with every ounce of our being!

That One Time We Went To A Movie Theater

Scarlett has JUST reached the age where she'll sit through an entire children's movie, so we've been venturing out with all 3 girls and attempting some theater outings.

For Christmas, Gummy and Papa wanted to treat the girls to seeing Frozen for the first time!

Paul and I decided to tag along, because I love Adele Dazim, and because we both enjoy a wonderful Disney Movie!

I attempted to draw out our seating arrangements and it looked horrid, so now you get to listen to me try and explain it.

Aren't you lucky?!

Just pretend that big line is the movie screen and those little zeros are all of our heads.

Beginning from left to right...

Empy Seat, Me, Scarlett, Paul, Papa, Lily, Gummy, Addison, Empty Seat.

Just so were clear, Paul and I were on the OPPOSITE side of a large theater from all of the following nonsense.

The rest of the theater was filling up and we were waiting for the movie to start.

Addison musters up the best stage "whisper" she can and decides to inform Gummy that her "naked" is kinda hurting.

As the ladies sitting directly behind my Mom and Daughter start to giggle to themselves, my Mom asks my child if she's been wiping. 

 A valid question.

To which Addison replies "I could probably be doing a better job!". 


 My Mom asks her if she'll be OK till after the movie when I can take her and she says yes and settles back into her chair.

Crisis averted.

For 30 seconds.

Addison then leans forward and scream across the movie theater...


Now, Paul and I had heard Addison's "whispers" across the theater, we were aware of what was coming, but had hoped to avoid the embarrassment train all together by hiding with Scarlett and pretending like nothing was happening.

As my dear sweet Mother, sandwiched in between our two oldest ladies, tried to shush Addison and scooch her out of the chair to head to the bathroom and avoid further embarrassment Miss Lilyanna decided we all needed further clarification on the subject.

"She means her VAGINA."

The entire theater went silent.

You could have heard a pin drop.


Que the entire theater audience bursting into laughter as the lights go down to start Frozen.

Literally the entire theater.

Never a dull moment with these kids.

p.s. I'm still all for teaching my children the anatomically correct names for their body parts, but fully understand now why some people choose not to.

No judgement from this Mama.


  1. I LOVE this! Mostly because it didn't happen to me...lol

    1. I'm sure you have plenty of embarrassing stories from your boys ;)
