It's All About The Babes & Boobs

I'm an only child (explains alot doesn't it!).

I never knew what it was like to live with little boys, until my own came along.

The closest thing I have to a brother, is my cousin Stephen. He is also an only child, a year older than me, and lived only 45 minutes away.

Boys are still a mystery to me most days.

The things that make them tick.

Or don't.

From the time they were very young, one thing about the boys was apparent...

I find it interesting to see what kind of girls they find attractive.

On TV.

In real life.

A few weeks ago, Adam asked me to show him how to change his background on the computer.

I said sure and walked him through the steps.

Once confident he understood, I left him to google the WWE Wrestler images.

A few minutes later, he calls out "MOM! Come see my new background! It's REALLY cool!"

I came downstairs expecting to find John Cena, Batista, or Jeff Hardy filling the screen.

Instead, I saw this.

Oh yeah, she's a wrestler alright. One of the Wrestling Diva's.

And that's what he'd googled "wwe maria"

It may have been an innocent google, but I wasn't about to have her splashed across my 9yr old's computer screen ... like THAT!


Without trying to make too big a deal of it, I simply said, "Uh ... Hon ... new rule ... you can pick a Diva, but ... she has to have CLOTHES ON!!!!"

"But she HAS clothes on!"

I simply shook my head and said "More clothes than that."

This time I left him grumbling.

They know there's no argument when it comes to computer use.

Nothing inappropriate. I must have all passwords. I will check history. No talking to strangers. Blah Blah Blah.

They will lose computer time for any and all offenses, so he knew this was a no win, as it clearly fell under "Nothing Inappropriate".

A few minutes later, I hear, "MOM! I chose a new one!" And she's wearing clothes!"

Sigh. I can't believe that just came out of my kid's mouth.

I walked over to the computer, to find this ... another Maria.

"Doesn't she look pretty Mom! And look! She has a sucker!"


I'd like to think that's just his innocence talking.

I'd really really really like to hold onto that, just awhile longer.

But alas, I know the truth.

It's all about the Babes and Boobs.

The background has once again been changed.

He chose a WWE Dude.

With clothes.

Hayley said...

I had to giggle at this. I think you handled it much better than I would have. I have 3 boys and boy am I worried!!! Is this really what I have to look forward to? Yikes!!!

Lans said...

This made me smile. I can feel that you're a great mom. We can only hope the best for our kids. Thanks for sharing this. This site might be helpful.

Kim's Korner said...

3699 - Yes, yes they do! Unfortunately, Adam is growing up even quicker than Alec did :-( I find with an older brother around the younger one learns ALOT more ALOT faster :-(

WWoW - yeah, GREAT sucker! And I can only imagine all the fantastic things she can DO with it too! ;-p

I have an idea for the giveaway, I just have to FIND it this week.

Haley - Yes ... you have all this to look forward to AND MORE!!!! ;-p

Lans - Thanks so much for visiting the Korner and for leaving a comment! Welcome! :-)

I don't know about 'Great Mom'. More like 'Flying by the seat of her pants Mom' LOL. But you're right, we only want what's best. Always! Thanks much for the link!

Rhonda said...

Well now, he could have picked the dude without clothes for his mom!! lol

And that maria thing? "Showing the ropes AND the rack"????? Huh?? Seriously? Guys are schmucks, but girls are dumb enough to pose for them, right??


Visiting from SITS!! Enjoy your day!


LOVE it!!!! I am feeling SOOOOOOOOO glad I have a girl right now. Oh, wait. She may be WANTING to wear those "clothes" one day. AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

sarah @ i run with scissors said...

so it really does start at a young age? huh... who knew.

Honestly, this post is hilarious.

Mary at Deep South Dish said...

Oh my, well boys will be boys!

Happy SITS Day!

Karen & Gerard Zemek said...

I think your mistake was showing him how to change his background to anything on the web. I think you should make a new rule--he can only use your own pictures for computer backgrounds.

Congrats on your SITS day!

gamommy2two said...

Remind me again...What's the fun of a WWE wrestler with clothes on? I thought the point of the show was to see men in their briefs all oiled up...Now my whole world view is skewed!

Donnetta said...

Thank GOODNESS my boy still just wants to murder and maim people on XBox! :)

Happy SITS day!

The Green Family said...

Kim, I'm also Kim~berli and I have two boys...4 and 7 months old. You make me chuckle...(does anyone say that anymore?! I guess I just did!)

Jayden (4) is ALL about BOOBS. He tells me 'Mom you have HUGE boobs'
'Mom, will Shanna's baby have boobs, because she has boobs'

Seriously...MEN. Happy SITS day SITSA!

Agy Talks said...

Happy SITS day! This post was so funny :D Love It! Boys still are boys no matter what age :D

Marie Cole said...

I had no idea at 9 years old they were already thinking like that, silly me.

Jen @ After The Alter said...

Boys are just too much! What happened to the days when boys wouold be embarrassed to show their mom that? Maybe hide their stuff under the bed or something?? lol

Annie @ astonesthrowfrominsanity said...

Ha! I am not quite at this stage yet with my son, but I have a feeling he will give me a run for my money. :)

Laura said...

I have 2 girls & know nothing about boys, but don't let his innocence fool you. He knows what he's doing. LOL!

Happy SITS Day!

It's heartening to know that there are great moms raising great boys out there.

Amanda said...

I grew up in a house with just me, sister and my Mom and he was the only male! No male cousins or anything. So i have no clue about boys. My hubby is a basketball coach to teens, and he's got tons of "boy stories" about them...just one of life's great mysteries!!

Sabreena said...

Hi! Here from SITS. Okay so you just officially freaked me out with this post. I have 2 boys that are still only 2 and 3 so I never think about how quickly they will grow up. I'm not ready for babes and boobs yet! Great post.

Kristin @ Meanbean said...

this is a great story! And way to go, enforcing like that...sounds like you've done a good job with it, and they respect that. Good job Mom! :)

sarah Baron said...

Very funny story! Boys are boys are boys. And then they grow up into men....

Anonymous said...

"She has a sucker" haha! Made me crack up at my work desk.

Aleta said...

That's hilarious, but what's really cool is that you have the rules and he knew better. It's called respect. Nice to see it still happens in homes, where the kids respect the parents!!

AimeƩ said...


And you made me so glad my little guy is still only 16 months, not 16 years!

Joann Mannix said...

OMG! I am snorting at the "She has a sucker!" Too sweet.

Having all girls, teenager ones at that, I am seeing the opposite end of the spectrum. I look at boys now with narrowed eyes, knowing what teenage boys think about night and day. That is according to my husband. There are good ones out there. Good ones raised my good mommas. I think your boys are going to be some of the goodies.

Babes about Town said...

LOL boys will be boys, apparently at ANY age! If you stop by my blog, you'll see the interesting convo I had with my 4-year-old the other day. Kids, you've gotta love 'em.

Happy SITS day, your blog is loads of fun!

Megan said...

Oh wow. heehee Good to know he's now got a dude...with his background. lol

nicole- chasing blue said...

Sigh...I'm afraid my little boy is going to be like that. He loves boobs and girls already at 18 months. I was afraid he'd never grow out of it.

Tanisha Rankins said...

Awwwh, I can't wait until I'm a mother of little boys:) I'd love to think that I'm a huge advocate for change. But I really hope I'm able to adapt to this. I'm an only child too, and your story makes life seem soooooo much more interesting and fun. What a humorous story! Happy SITS Day to ya:))

the sucker comment got my giggles going. I've been sick, so I needed that!
