playtime on the lane...

tania commented that maggie had a dreamy look in the photos of her i took yesterday...

tania was right!!!

little maggie was dreaming of being able to go out on the deck with katherine, chico, alex, and drew... she was sooooooooooooo sad that she wasn't invited to go "play" with them.


katherine came home from school on wednesday, and the first thing out of her mouth was, "mom, chico wants to know if he and alex can come over and show me how they wax the hair off their chests and backs. is it ok if they come tomorrow after school???"

ok, there are a lot of questions and requests for which a mother prepares herself; but, this was not one i EVER foresaw coming!!!
(waxing chest and back hair??? WTH???)


she started laughing. "i'm serious, they actually want me to do it because they didn't get it even the last time they waxed each others'!!!"

against my better judgement, i told her they could come but that they would have to do it on the back deck... as i didn't want the mess in my house:I

so, last night at 6:15, chico and alex came into the house sporting a bottle of... nair!!!

i read the directions aloud to katherine (who was totally not paying any attention), who was obviously going to "wing it"... when chico's cell rang. i heard him giving directions to our house.

"dani b, drew's coming over to watch, " he informed me as he closed his cell.

this is going to be a zoo!!! i thought to myself...

a few minutes later, drew arrived and the 4 went out on the deck.

thank goodness chico decided NOT to let katherine do the honors!!!

chico lathered up alex's chest. then the next thing i knew, drew was lying on his stomach having chico nair his initials on the back of his legs???

i cut my eyes over at john and said, "do you know what they are doing, NOW???"

john said, "oh, just leave them alone. they're just 'playing'..."

playing, i thought to myself... did he just say playing??? oh, yes he did!!!

wth:b i got out my camera:

well, that was life on the lane last night...

love and blessings,
dani xx

Bren's Life said...

What a crack up! Yeah I would of said WTH too... That is just a crack up. How old are these boys & did they actually even have any chest hair & back hair to take off? You should of come out with the tweezers & started plucking it for them!!!
Your house sounds so fun!

kristen said...

HMMMM nice bod!!

What a crack up !

Tanya said...

Makes for an interesting afternoon on the lane with out a doubt!! those boys are hysterical, & definitely not shy!! i'm sure Maggie was glad not to have been out there!! great photos Miss Dani!!

btw your photos of Maggie are just gorgeous, she is so sweet :)

t. xxxx

chico said...

Swizzle, :D

dani said...

hey, tabitha:)
i'm extremely happy that my maggie was watching from afar!!! otherwise, she would probably have bald spots today:o
the whole waxing thing was pretty darn funny... almost as funny as john telling me to chill because they were just "playing"!!! lol!!!

dani said...

bren, you should have been here!!! the boys are 16, 17, and 18:?
ha!!! it's usually at least interesting around here. that's for sure!!!

dani said...

kristen, they are "crack ups" for sure!!!

dani said...

thank you, tanya:) she certainly was a sad little pup that she was left... the boys are crazy, and i just shake my head, HA!!!

dani said...

chico, maybe you have found your niche in life??? no???

MoziEsmé said...

OOoo that looks painful! Though they seem to be having fun amidst the pain!

dani said...

hi, j:) they actually used nair as opposed to waxing... the nair just has to me left on for 10 minutes and wiped off as opposed to the wax that has to be pulled off... QUICKLY!!! but the stuff they used stunk so badly (like perm or hair dye only stronger)...

Little Sweethearts said...

Dani, what are you thinking: putting up pictures of half naked young men on your blog, a blog which is being read by women whose age (I premuse) is varying between late twenties and early forties!!!!

You're making us expect even more pictures next time!! hahahahaha!!


Amanda said...

Thats all i have to say:D
Great photos Dani!

Anonymous said...

What a total crack up!

Do they make Nair with a manly scent? Or did they smell kinda girly for awhile?

What a great start to you weekend!
I love your funny life stories and always leave your blog feeling happy and loving that I "found" you!

Kat said...

look what i have gotten myself into

dani said...

tania, i just truly laughed out loud at your comment (i thought about not posting the pictures at first and then thought, "why not???"). chico (sweet chics as i call him) loves being the subject of my blogg!!! you will notice above his comment ^^^ "swizzle", HA!!!
john just kept asking, "is it a fad???" "why do they want to remove the hair from their chest and back???"...
i love you for making me laugh:D

dani said...

amanda, when they opted for the nair instead of waxing, they also opted out of the pain!!! nair just wipes off the body (no pain involved but the scent is god-awful!!!) HA!!!

dani said...

hey, jenn:) it was "manly nair" that they used. i took the photos through the french door window, so i didn't smell the original scent. however, the after scent all smells the same... UGH!!! like perm solution only much stronger!!! it was horrible:S
thank GOD for oust!!! HA!!!
it was pretty darn funny, though:D

dani said...

hahahahahaha, kat, i'm just relieved you didn't have to get YOUR hands into the nair:b

Christy said...

I think I am a little confused. Why do these boys not want any chest or back hair?

dani said...

christy, i think it's a gq thing??? john couldn't wrap his brain around it either...

Wendi said...

You should start a reality show...
I guess that's pretty much what a blog is though huh? :)
Funny stuff!

rhonda said...

too funny!!! i naired kevin's back ONCE....only once because he had a rash/burn on his back for DAYS afterwards!!! guess i should have used nair for the face since it is not as strong???

dani said...

hi, wendi:) lol, i don't think i would want to be THAT scrutinized!!! blogging is about as "out there" as i care to be:D

dani said...

hey, r:) that's what i was afraid was going to happen to alex. the reason they didn't wax this time is because he broke out into a rash with the wax. that nair is some powerful (and powerful smelling) stuff:I

SuzanSayz said...

I can't believe I missed this one Dani! That is just too funny. Can you even imagine boys doing something like that when we were young? And more importantly wanting to go over to a girls house to do it? The world has sure changed. LOL!!!

dani said...

no, suz, i cannot believe it??? however, i have a feeling that chico likes being the object of my blogs, HA!!!

Dana said...

For crying out loud, d...

dani said...

have you seen it all (well, thank God it wasn't "it all") now???
