We have a term in our house "spleen damage," which refers to anything even remotely suggesting to our kids that their parents might have a sex life... "ewwwww, gross you guys!"
When my son was younger he took a fall and had to have a CAT scan to check for spleen damage (he was fine) and I guess it was the first time he'd ever heard of a spleen, and had no clue what it was or did, but it seemed to fascinate him, and ever since then whenever they would catch us kissing or making cute little comments to each other he would yell out, "my spleen!"
Of course, now my hubby and I exploit this to the fullest - I'll buy the hubby a birthday card, or stick one in his pack if he's going off somewhere... and I often buy the "suggestive" ones... and once one of the kids picked it up and read it - something about sex on the kitchen floor I think - and now they are very careful about reading cards that aren't intended for them.... "Is this a spleen card?" I save the hubby the green M&M's, and when D#2 asked why, I told her.... "ewww Mom, that's gross - you think your funny, but you're not... that's just gross." I'm always telling them... don't ask questions you don't really want the answers to! Spleen damage - I love to see them squirm. I always tell them, it could be worse, you could have parents who can't stand each other, instead of parents who, well, you get the picture.
My talking about being a "sexy knitter" would be enough to cause spleen damage. So, of course, I do mention it from time to time. Sexy and parents do not go together - spleen damage.
So, check out the progress on my Essential Stripe Wendy/Heather Tub sweater... it's getting there! I know, I'm slow, but I'm knitting as fast as I can. I actually took a picture of it on me this morning, and it's fitting beautifully. I can't wait for it to be done. I'm hoping it will be ready for Thanksgiving, since it will be cold where we're going and it would be perfect.
I actually posted the picture of me in the sweater - for about a minute, until I (thankfully) took a closer look at the picture. The sweater doesn't quite cover my belly and there was about 2" of "muffin top" action goin' on. My stomach is not up for showing to the public any more - and I didn't want to cause any of you spleen damage.
