What the neighbors must think

Here's my amusing anecdote for the day.

Yesterday I was watching "What not to wear" on TLC while the children were eating lunch. After lunch Bird went down for her nap. I then turned off the TV and told Meaty and Bounce that they had to pick up the toys, then they could watch TV for quiet time. I left them to clean and brought Squeaky upstairs to bottle feed, rock and put down for her nap. After she was all tucked in and snoozing I realized the worst noises were coming from downstairs. It was moaning, a low rhythmic moaning, a female moaning, and it was LOUD. I went downstairs to see what the children were watching. I have parental locks on the TV so they shouldn't have been able to get anything adult, but you never know with these kids, they're scary smart. I walked into the living room where they were spellbound staring at the TV and asked "What are you watching" to which Bounce mournfully replied "We don't know." They had turned the TV back on (after picking up most of the toys I might add, I'm so proud) but being unable to reach the remote they were forced to watch "A Baby Story" on TLC. Funny I never realized women sound the same giving birth as they do conceiving. Being unable the change the channel they had logically turned the volume up all the way. And our windows were wide open. I'm sure child services will be here tomorrow to find out why I'm showing my children such questionable material.

Hee, hee! You'll need to make the girls watch that show again when they're 11 or 12 - I would think that would be a great deterrent to questionable behavior!

I've always thought that women in labor make sex noises and found it kind of ironic!

Quick question... do you remember which issue of Vogue that vogue wrap cardigan is from??
