I don't know how the conversation started, but tonight I told the kids that when they were babies, I had my phone number tattooed on their butt. Maybe there was no conversation leading to the topic. Sometimes its just fun to mess with them.
Of course, they doubted me for a second, but I told them I wasn't kidding and that if they were ever lost and couldn't remember my phone number, they were to go somewhere private and look for the number. I told them its written in small numbers because they were just small babies when it was done..they might have to squint to see the numbers.
They left the kitchen, there was giggling, Niamh said she saw the numbers on Finn's bum, between the cheeks. Then Finn came in the kitchen with his pants down to show us where Niamh found my phone number.
Sometimes I just love being a mom. Its powerful.
