A Recalcitrant Wife and Mother Tells All

Belly Wave

One of my neighbors requested that I post this video on YouTube so she could watch it every day at 6 PM when she needs a little boost to make it through the rest of the day. Thought I’d share the love with all of you while I was at it. If this doesn’t make you smile, you are a heartless Honey Badger.

Don’t you just love a short week?

  1. Alison@Mama Wants This

    That. Is. Not. Humanly. Possible. I just tried doing it and all my belly did was flop.

    He’s so cute!!

    • The Bearded Iris

      Thanks! Me neither. Belly flop sisters, are we!

  2. Kate Yarris

    I love Bucket Head! I could never do those belly waves.

    • The Bearded Iris

      Aw – thanks! I love him too. Isn’t he just edible?! I can’t do the belly waves either. Maybe he gets it from his Daddy?

  3. Katybeth

    Love it! I could bounce back..but I won’t.

  4. Made in Suisse

    This is AMAZING!! I went to belly-dancing classes for a couple of years and never managed to belly wave like this. Ver jealous, that’s a true talent!

    • The Bearded Iris

      WOW! Good to know! I will encourage him to further develop this amazing talent and be the next World Champion Belly Dancer!!!

  5. Julie @ mamamash

    Oh, pshaw, mine does that all the time when I slap my thigh.

    • The Bearded Iris

      Hmmmm…. please tell me more about this thigh slapping. Are you a licensed hamboner? Or are you laughing so hard that you are slapping yourself? Or is the thigh slapping your “safety word” with Mr. Mash?

  6. Kristy

    WOW! My belly waves just as I walk! Yuck, really need to do something about that! 😉

    • The Bearded Iris

      Yours and mine both, sister. In some cultures, we would be revered! (Sadly, not in our own culture, dammit!)

  7. FiveOGrrl

    thanks for the SCRAPPPPS. Honey badger don’t care 🙂

  8. Allysgrandma

    That IS true talent. I think we should set up a blind date with him and my sweet granddaughter….in about 15 years!!

    Also another appropriate boost at 6:00 pm would be my beloved limoncello drink, 3 part limencello with 1 part pelligrino and a squeeze of fresh lemon. Repeat as needed!

    • The Bearded Iris

      That sounds DELISH!! I love limoncello. Hey, I made lemon-lime-basil-vodka slush puppies today!!! New favorite summer treat.

  9. Anne @ Domesblissity

    Oh Iris. What a clever little boy. You know what made me laugh? Every time I take a digital photo or video clip of my kids, they say “can I have a look?” It’s like that’s the best part of the whole process. Kids are so vain! LOL


  10. Dawn@LightenUp!

    Well! I am so glad I am not a Honey-Dam-Badger, because that was flippin’ Hi-larious! Thanks for the laugh!
