Location: Palm Beach County, Florida, United States

Recently have been told I look like Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island. I hadn't heard that in years, but that is a good place to start as to what I look like, although she had a better bod. I have three boys and have been married for 13 years. Born of a Navy family, in Hawaii, one Mom, one Dad, one sister and one brother. The eldest of three children. BS in Applied Mathematics. Consider Pensacola my home town although I moved every 2-3 years of my life growing up. Currently work in the aerospace industry in an engineering position while being a Mom. Of Celtic heritage and very proud of it.

Follow the Bouncing Ball...

Once again, a story that I think the men will laugh at, I may gather a cyber collective *gasp* from the women... and my Mom might get kinda pissed. Just a little... although she may laugh and *gasp*.

Background: Keep in mind my Son is 9 and really just is NOT noticing anything. Also, remember that his mother is a small breasted woman. When I go running if I wear a good tight sports bra, I look like a boy. There is no 'bouncing'.

We were eating dinner after going to see the Sponge Bob movie. The topic of David Hasselhoff came up and Son#1 wanted to know who he was. So my husband explained that he was in a show called Knight Rider and then went on to be in a show called Baywatch where he played a life guard with a bunch of bikini clad women life guards who ran around on the beach. The following is the ensuing conversation:

Son#1: Sounds like a stupid show.

Husband: Maybe, but some men thought it brilliant.

Son#1: Why?

Husband: All the women in their bathing suits running on the beach. Their breasts were bouncing and some men like to watch that.

Son#1: (short thoughtful pause) Maybe they were attached by strings making them bounce up and down.

Silence at the table as my husband and I look at him.

Me: Yeeeaaaaah. That would do it.

I wasn't about to explain that to him... not anymore than I was about to explain that humans don't always do it like Donkeys.

David... just post! I read your profile. You look like you've got a helluva a lot going on in your life. Let me know when you're up and running...

You mean strings are not what makes them bounce? I thought it was since they had those pointy things to hook on to.

I am up and running . . . for better or worse.

Speaking of pointy things . . . how come they don't make those pointy bras from the 40s and 50s movies any longer? Some things just never go out of style.

David made a comment on, so I went to his blog, which lead me to yours.

My wife is small also, but my 15-year-old daughter inherited different genes. Last night we were out with a couple of close friends (Ones with whom we are very comfortable) when my wife said,
"Laura, button your sweater. You are showing cleavage!"
Whereby our host replied, "Don't worry about it Laura. Your Moms just jealous."

I would like to invite you to visit my blog:

I have enjoyed your post.

Tell Son #1 that special effects technology has improved greatly since the 90's, and these days you can't see the strings anymore :-)

Guess I need to get some string and bring it with me the next time I come to visit you and the boys. GRIN. That is way too funny.

LOL! We are starting to have those conversations at the dinner table in my house, too with our 6 yoa son. Cracks me up the things they think of.
