What I CAN Draw

Sometime in the past few weeks...

TONGGINATOR: Momma, look! I drew a picture of YOU for my teacher!

TONGGU MOMMA: Wow, you worked really hard on that... I love that you remembered my eyebrows.

handcrafted by the Tongginator, Feb. 2009

TONGGINATOR: Now I have to draw a picture for my OTHER teacher. I'll draw Daddy.

TONGGU MOMMA: (busy paying bills) Okay, honey.

TONGGINATOR: But I don't remember exactly what he looks like cuz he's not here.

TONGGU MOMMA: Why don't you find a picture of Daddy to look at while you draw it? Will that help?

TONGGINATOR: Okay! (grabs a framed photo off a nearby table) Umm... Momma? I don't know how to draw all of Daddy's hair.

TONGGU MOMMA: Huh? Sweetie, you draw it on top of his head, just like you did for Momma's picture. Only use a darker brown.

TONGGINATOR: No. I mean his other hair. On his arms and stuff.

TONGGU MOMMA: Oh. Well, you don't have to draw that. Most people don't.

TONGGINATOR: (visibly frustrated) Arg! (sigh) Oh, okay. (silence for a few seconds, then... brightening) But Momma, I did think of what I DO know how to draw for Daddy.

TONGGU MOMMA: Oh? What?

TONGGINATOR: His peanut!!!

TONGGU MOMMA: WHAT?!?!!! No! You can't draw THAT, Tongginator. Absolutely not!

Tonggu Momma saves the day yet again. Although I feel totally curious about the Tongginator's artistic renderings of the husband's "peanut." And it looks like someone's gonna need to be more careful about locking the bathroom door when he's showering. BwaaaaHaHaHaHa!

Hahahahahahahaha!

This is so funny!

When my oldest daughter was young, she referred to that particular body part on her brother as his tail. Made sense to me.

Thanks for making me spit diet coke all over the laptop screen this morning!! She's a hoot, that girl!! I love it.

happygeek said...

What a riot.

Andrea said...

"snort" Haahaaa.

Glad I wasn't drinking my morning coffee while reading this post!

Ah, the days... Some of your posts, like this one, make me miss those days with my kids. And, reminds me of how fast they grow up!!!

Blessings!

Gail said...

I'm LOL and REALLY loud at that. Will is sitting on my lap as I type this and wondering WHAT mom is laughing about. Too funny!

Take care TM and hope your weekend is a good one. :)

Lula! said...

His peanut?

Does he know she said this? 'Cause...you know...it's kind of a diss.

Bwahahahahahaha!!!

Stefanie said...

We call it a 'peanut' as well... of course, that is in reference to Jude and Shepherd's 'business'...

Debbie said...

You should have let her! Now that would have been a "keeper"!
BTW, you might want to go a teeny bit lighter on the eyeliner:)

Quirky Mom said...

Hahahahaha, I would totally have let her, I just wouldn't let her take it to her teacher.

You know, a 6yo girl I know recently drew a very detailed picture of her hairbrush, only it turned out to look uncannily like male genitalia (the twig AND the berries). So you never know when the Tongginator will surprise you with an unintentional peanut picture.

Christi said...

That is too funny! My daughter would draw stick figures with circles for boobs. My under-endowed cousin wasn't too happy when she got tiny circles and requested larger ones, LOL.

prechrswife said...

Oh, my! You never know what they are going to come up with next.

Soliloquy said...

Nice.

If you hadn't willingly already humiliated yourself on your blog (multiple times), I would be sayin' "Sayonara - nice knowin' ya'!"

Is your man gonna' be mad?!

Mine would KILL me!

Laura L. said...

Thanks for the laugh! I'm still smilin'!

I was wondering if you would be in trouble with Tonggu Dad too.

jen@odbt said...

LOL! This is classic. Can you imagine if Tongginator drew her picture how she wanted to? Oh my!

LaLa said...

LOL...so funny!! Why didn't she bother drawing the boobies you showed the babysitter?

Briana's Mom said...

Ok, I started cracking up at the post and then I laughed even harder at what LaLa said.

BTW, thank you for finally showing us a picture of your face! ;)

Ivy said...

Gosh, I almost peed here:))

Saint Louis Family Robinson said...

OK, I'm busting my gut here! Seriously, this is TOO much... I've got a stitch!

The word peanut is misused at our house too. So far she has only gone into a detailed peanut conversation in the comfort of our own home... waiting for the day she does it out in public.

And I didn't know you were into yellow shoes!

Aunt LoLo said...

OH. MY. GOOD. STARS. AND. LANDS.

That is the funniest thing!!!

I was changing SJ's diaper last night, and BBJ was looking on. "Mommy, baby has owie!" "Where, sweetie?" "There!" "Where?" "There!!" (i point to his "peanut") "There?" "Yes!"

Hmm...looks like we might have some 'splainin' to do! 'cause that's SOME owie! I'm surprised she even noticed it!

Rebecca said...

Oh, dear. Now you've gone and made me spit my drink all over my screen. I am going to be laughing about this all evening...

Meredith Teagarden (The Things We Carried) said...

I want her to do my portrait, if she can make me look stick thin :). Oh dear, the peanut thing was hilarious! Good thing she did not get to school with her picture drawn for show and tell! Eeeek.

Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...

Oh my word.....she is a riot!! Good thing she worked on this project at home and not in school....could you imagine if you weren't there to stop her? HYSTERICAL!! Can't wait to hear what Tonggu Daddy has to say about this one.....

Have a good weekend:)

Rhonda said...

Hilarious!

I guess that would give new meaning to the song "Found a peanut...found a peanut..." ( I couldn't resist.) ;)

Dorsey said...

hehehehehehehehe I almost wet myself when I read that!! HILARIOUS!!! Way to save the day, Momma!!!

Kayce said...

Funnnny stuff!

Michelle said...

Oh my!! That is hilarious!! I'm not sure TH will think so, but it sure made me laugh!!

BTW, lovely drawing of you. Is that your, "just woke up from bed and before my first cup of coffee" look?

I'm days behind, but am just getting caught up on your latest posts. I love your new Wednesday linkage on NHBO.

Kristin said...

I'm sorry but that is hysterical! I can't believe some of the things our kids come up with. My son once drew a picture of himself and shared it with Grandma. When he got to the "pertinent" info, she about croaked. It was too funny. Well, to me anyhow. Not to her. :-)

Your little one is sure to keep you on your toes!!

discombobulated said...

I guess Tonggu Daddy didn't have a chance to proofread this post! Too funny. He will be deadbolting the bathroom door from now on!

Sharie said...

I just had to teach Amelia what a peanut was. No men in our house - that conversation was a hoot.
She was saying, "I fell down and hurt my "peanut". I had to explain to her that she didn't have one - then she wanted to know what it was.
"You know how the boys at school go potty standing up? How do they get the pee in the potty" "Oh it's a weiner!"
AHH lovely!

planetnomad said...

grr...just lost my comment.
Ok, here we go again.
When Ilsa was about 2 1/2, one day she announced, "Daddy Elliot Abel happiness! happiness!" Oh so sweet, I thought. And then, I thought, "But why only the boys?"
She was saying "Have penis" not "happiness."
Observant little monkey, wasn't she?

Monica said...

Hmmm...that picture looks JUST LIKE you. I can appreciate the Togginator's need for accuracy....
It appears that she was drawing you when you were racing around doing your laundry in front of the visiting young man (babysitter?) in your home...reaching far back into my memory there...but I think that MUST be the moment Tongginator had in mind when drawing this picture of you, given your complete lack of apparel. Great eyebrows, by the way!

kris said...

...oh come on, that coulda been yet another forwarded email to kingdom COME and back- you know, 'check your kids homework' kind of deal~!

McEwens said...

HILARIOUS!

Heather of the EO said...

Oh NO. PEANUT.

The other day I was moving the string from my hooded sweatshirt (really, that's what I was doing) and Miles said, "I saw you grabbing at your PEEPER." I said, "Actually I was just grabbing this string and I don't have a peeper." We didn't make up this name for penis, so I don't really get it...

Well, then the conversation had to carry on of course! "Well, then what DO you have?" sigh...here we go. What fun.

Beverly said...

LOL!! Now that right there is funny!

Rebecca Ramsey said...

Too funny!
My hubby started making sure to shut the door when our daughter (who LOVED to watch Barney the dinosaur, and even called her daddy Barney) said, "Wow Mommy! Barney has a really long tail!"

Janet said...

Oh dear me. That is too funny! I remember driving home once with one of my kids' friends in the car. They got talking about babies and Cecil just HAD to say something about the "sperms". Of course, the other kids asked what that was...and I told him he had to ask him mom, and then his mom called me the next day, wondering what on EARTH we had been talking about in the car.....oops.

Flamingo Mama said...

i had a feeling this was going there! absolutely hysterical!!

gritandglory.com said...

i'm sure he doesn't appreciate it being called something so...ahem...small!

All Rileyed Up said...

For my own personal benefit, I wish you had encouraged the drawing and then posted it on your blog for all the internet to see.

CC said...

Bwhahahaha!!!!!!!

And, um, did she give you a black eye in that picture of you?

Elizabeth Channel said...

All of that is simply awesome! If you *had* posted the peanut, I'll bet you would have gotten tons of hits ; )

Colleen said...

LOL so funny...when Livi was little she was showering with Daddy and said "look Daddy you have an ice cream cone". LOL

Mom To Six said...

Oh my! I'm a bit behind here, but I have to say that's gotta be one of the funniest things I've ever heard!!!

Blessings,

Ohilda

Peanut said...

Oh, that IS funny!

KK gets all weirded out by the fact that her dad is hairy.
