I had to bite the bullet and tell my butt knuckle balls to suck it up.

This is a conversion I had with Rocket about a week ago:

Rocket: Mom, my balls really hurt.

Mom: Your balls hurt? Why?

Rocket: Well, because I was standing on them a lot in Karate class.

Mom: You were standing on your balls??!!

Rocket: Yeah!! The balls of my feet. I was standing on the balls of my feet.

Mom: Oh! I understand now. I thought you meant your balls... like... your private parts.

Rocket: NO! (laugh) Thats funny- standing on my private parts!

Mom: Yeah, that's why I was confused.

Rocket: Well, here is how you can not get confused. If I say 'butt knuckle balls', then I am talking about my hiney balls. But if I say 'balls', then I mean the balls of my feet.

(I have no clue where he came up with ANY of this terminology)

At this point I burst out laughing

Mom: (while laughing) butt knuckle balls?!!

Rocket: I am serious. It's not funny. (He gives me an angry look which lasts 2 seconds, and then he can't help but start laughing too.)

This last week, we were spending the week in Breckenridge- a vacation that Matt won for us a couple months ago. One day we rented bikes to ride to Dillon (a 25 mile round trip). Rocket rode on a "tag-a-long" which attatches to my bike to turn the bike into a tandem bike. Roxanne rode in a carriage behind Matt. The wind was in my ears as we rode, but I could hear Rocket shouting things to me from behind. At one point we had this conversation:

Rocket: Mom, my butt knuckle balls hurt!!!

Mom: I know, so do mine!!

Rocket: But, Mom, I thought you didn't have any butt knuckle balls!?

Mom: You're right, I don't.

(A few moments pass)

Rocket: Mom, I had to bite the bullet and tell my butt knuckle balls to suck it up!! If yours still hurt, you should do the same thing!

Mom: (laughing so hard) OK!

So, that is how I came up with the title for this blog. I think it is the best title I have had yet. Now, we will just have to extinguish this sort of language before school starts again.

Welcome to the Weird, but Wonderful World of Boys!
I had to remind my 2 that poots are bodily functions, NOT weapons. That's just a small sample of life w/ my 2.
I've always said boys are from another planet...
If Rocket grows up & becomes a proctologist, you need to frame this conversation on the wall of his office. *G* Rocket it just too funny!!!

I think you gave me crap about cycling stuff, but you rode a LONG LONG way. You could totally do it. slacker. It also makes me laught to think about future ball conversations that I will have. I take it the ride wasn't very hilly...
