Ever Misheard Something

Have you ever misheard somethng that was said?
I do.
All the time.

Apparently, these situations happen at preschool as well.
My son's preschool to be specific.
Of course it was my son who was misheard & he was very offended about.

Last week Bobster & I went to pick up Cheeks from school.
Now let me preface this with saying he watched the movie Transformers II.  It has some adult language and we have told him he is not to repeat what he hears.

So the young, senior in high school, who is in his room approaches me & Bobster to tell us our angelic boy said a naughty word.
She was turning about 40 shades of red.
So I asked "What did he say?"
She's himming, hawing.
Finally she says, in barely a whisper, "He said penis"

Bobster says "Well we are teaching him the proper terminology for his parts.  How did he use it? Did he say it hurt?"
The girl, bashful beyond belief, casts her eyes down & says "I'm not sure, Miss K just told me to tell you"
I told her we would take care of it.
Obviously, I was mortified but realized, well he's 4 at least he didn't call it something nasty.

So when we get outside I asked him why he said penis.
He looked very offended & got upset, saying "I didn't say penis".
Me: "What did you say"
Very proudly, but still offended, he replied "I said p**sy".

Now we have taught him this word means cat so he really didn't say anything wrong in his eyes.
I told him he can't say that at school and not to say it again.

Meanwhile, I have an embarrassed teen girl, an adult teacher who thinks I am one heck of a parent & a husband who is turning red & choking with laughter.

Now I have to face these
As if my stomach isn't turned into knots to begin with from my normal day to day stress.

All I can say is Thank God for Alka Seltzer.

Smurfs: The Lost Village & Psst...a lightening fast Giveaway too!

Smurfs: The Lost Village is coming out April 7th.  That's this weekend.  
I don't know about you but I remember when the Smurfs first appeared on the scene.  Way back in the 80's...that's early 80's mind you.  I think I just gave away my age.  Yes, I am that old I remember the original gang.  I even had little Smurf toys.  One was a police officer.  That was because my dad was a police officer.
Enough reminiscing, I am so excited that the Smurfs have stood the test of time and the my child gets to experience them.  At 10 years old, he still likes them.  His favorite Smurf...Papa.  So we are definitely heading to opening weekend to see Smurfs: The Lost Village. 
Let us see what this film is all about:
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil …

Nessie & Me...a Review & a #Giveaway

Need a cute movie for the little ones to watch, this is the one.
Cheeks & I watched it, we liked it, albeit a bit young for my 10 year old boy.  I would say good age range for kids is maybe 3 to 7.

Here's a bit about the movie:

The Loch Ness Monster has been back in the news following a recent sighting and resurfaced pictures, just in time for the release of family movie “Nessie & Me,” which is now available on DVD & VOD, courtesy of Vision Films!
When 9-year-old Jamie moves to a beautiful lakeside village, he befriends a grumpy old sea captain who tells him of the lake’s mythical creature named Nessie. The townsfolk don’t believe him, but Jamie wonders if Nessie can be the solution to save the town from a greedy mogul who is buying up land around the lake… if only he can prove that Nessie is real. But sometimes it takes a little bit of magic, and with the help of a mermaid, a treasure map and an unlikely friendship with Nessie the Sea Monster, Jamie and the people of Lak…
