Our homeschool group met on Friday at the playground. Jensen has two little buddies his age that he was hanging with. They are twin boys that belong to my sweet friend, Staci.
Let’s take a moment of silence and hold Staci up in prayer. Because she has TWO 4 year old boys. In my book, that would be the equivalent of TWO Jensens.
And incidentally, one of her boys is the same one that I inadvertently grabbed and hung onto by the scruff of the shirt, thinking he was mine on a field trip. While I continued the conversation I was having with another harried mom. When I eventually looked down and realized that he wasn’t Jensen I was horrified. So was he. But his mother has assured me that there were no lasting damaging side effects. This remains to be seen.
Well, this particular boy and Jensen were knee deep in conversation, and we mothers were privy to what interests 4 year old boys because we were sitting just 2 feet away.
The subject that they were enamored with was food. And I’d like to share the recipe that they concocted together. I took copious notes, in-between their thigh slapping and squeals of uproarious laughter.
- Poop – Fried (it is important that it be FRIED and not baked)
- Topped With Whipped Cream (low fat, I imagine)
- Sprinkled on top with MARSHMALLOWS (COLORED ONES)
They went on to declare how GOOD their recipe would be! FLAMING POOP.
What is it with boys? A joke just isn’t a good joke unless it contains poop. Hilarious. And just so we’re clear, Jensen often enters a room announcing in his best outside voice, “MOM! I HAD A GOOD SOLID POOP!” Always a proud parenting moment.
Anyhoo. After the mothers were sufficiently grossed out, we shooed them off to play. Because if the truth be known, our Friday afternoon homeschool play group was not formed to aid in the socialization of our children.
IT IS FOR THE WEARY PARENTS. So that we can have adult sized conversation, and assure one another that we’re not alone in our insanity. Mostly.
And we also trade notes on inexpensive boarding schools. Located in a harsh climate. Just in case…
What does this have to do with Saturday Stirrings? Nothing. Except that I’ve not been able to get Flaming Poop out of my head.
And frankly, I don’t think I’ll be serving anything with whipped cream and marshmallows on top anytime soon.
As always, if you have a recipe to share, please leave it in the comments. And if it’s on your blog, you can leave the URL to the post in the comments as well.
But if the main ingredient is poop, then please refrain.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
