It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for another Proud Mommy Moments!
Please make sure that if you’re linking up, you’re actually linking a Proud or Not-So-Proud Mommy moment (using the permalink. Not sure what a permalink is? Just ask me). Links not related to PMM will be deleted and deleting links makes me feel bad. Please don’t make me feel bad.
I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. I know we did. We drove across Michigan to have Thanksgiving with my family. My middle brother and his family just built a brand new house, and they hosted Thanksgiving. My oldest brother and his family, as well as my parents were also all there.
It was just a really nice Thanksgiving. Good food, good company, and the kids were being good. We really didn’t have to get after them at all.
At the end of the evening, as we were all saying our goodbyes, my oldest brother informed me that Buddy told him he knew what the word “dingleberry*” meant. The irony in all of this is that my brother, “Mr. Jokester” and “Most likely to get into trouble” seemed appalled (and to be judging me) that Buddy knew what that word meant and was telling people.
I honestly had no idea, at the time, where Buddy would have heard that term. It’s not a term we just toss around in our daily conversation. As you can imagine, I was kind of embarrassed that Buddy knew what it meant and felt the need to share with others that he knew what it meant.
My middle brother found this conversation pretty funny. He only had a daughter, and she’s pretty well mannered.
However, the jokes on him. Once we got home, I asked Buddy where he learned the word. He smiled and said that my niece…none other than my middle brother’s daughter, had told him what it meant.
