Booty Kickin' Mammaw!

I heard something yesterday that I have never heard about my mom and don't think I ever will. If you don't know my mom, she is pretty quiet and shy around anyone she doesn't know. She is very polite. She is gentle (Bethany has said she likes that about Mammaw). Actually, she's a lot like Bethany. They even look somewhat alike.

The supervising Physical Therapist came by yesterday for her final check-up. From now on she will go to outpatient PT to finish her therapy. Well, at least therapy for her knee. Therapy from raising us is way too costly, I'm sure! So, this guy comes in and his first words to her are, "From what I've been told you are Kickin' Butt!" It took everything in me not to bust out laughing. Mom was grinning, too. See, Mom never let us use that word. It was "bottom" or "backside" or "rump." With my kids our favorite words are "Hiney" or "tushy." But (no pun intended) never the B-u-t-t word (spelled out as my kids do). I'm not so strict as my mom about it & know that it's the normal word to use now days. Even mom will say it is okay to use NOW. Still, I've never heard HER say it. And certainly she has NEVER said she's Kickin' one. AND REALLY never been TOLD that she is kicking one!

I think her grandkids all need to get a shirt now that says, "My Mammaw kicks B......."

Or not. LOL!
