Makin’ Whoopie


A few months back, the Hubs went to the store to pick up a few things- light bulbs, garbage bags. You know, the boring things you need to pick up on a Saturday morning before working around the house.  He came home with all that plus something extra for the kids.

Whoopie cushions.

Naturally, the kids thought they were awesome.  There is nothing funnier when you’re 2 & 4 then bodily functions- and a toy that sounds like toots?? It’s like hitting the jackpot.

Then, like with all toys, the kids lost interests and moved on.  Until today.

Today the kids discovered that they could “trick” someone into sitting on a whoopie cushion and pretending that the noise was real.  When I came in from work today, the kids had a chair set up with a pillow on it and a blanket over the seat with a suspicious looking bulge under it.  They invited me to take a seat after my long day of sitting in front of my computer, so I did.  When the whoopie cushion made its noise, the kiddos laughed so hard they got tears in their eyes.  When the Hubs got home some 15 minutes later, it was even funnier.

Since then they have been trying to slip cushions under everything to surprise us- there is no escaping them. Consider this fair warning if you come to our house!
