Kids Don’t Think ‘Bubba Teeth’ Are Funny? (VIDEO)
The other day I bought those gnarly fake teeth, a.k.a 'bubba' teeth, you see in the costume store. I figured it would be fun to wear them while acting silly and joking around with my 3-year-old Brody. I thought it was funny - I'm smiling just thinking about it - but he hated it. My mom and dad used to do this stuff all the time when we were young, but I don't think I'll be using them again!
When my 3-year-old son Brody was born, my family and I started calling him 'Little Bubba' or sometimes just 'Bubba' for short. A few months ago, I just randomly started calling him 'Chubba Bubba' and he always laughs and says 'No daddy, I'm Bwody!' with his cute little 'r' that sounds like a 'w'. But he loves the nickname.
Then I created a song one morning and it stuck. It's sung to the 'Brady Bunch' jingle and goes like this:
Here's a story...of a Chubba Bubba.
Who was Chubba Bubba Bubba Buh-Buh-Bubbbbbs.
He was Chubba...and he was Bubba,
And he was Bubba Chubbs!
And he loooves it. He sings it back to me and we even recorded a version together on a little device.
Fast-forward to a little over a week ago when I saw those gnarly teeth and I was like, I gotta have those for the song! Well, I can tell you he pretty much hates those teeth and I've worn them around the house a few times and he won't even look at me when they're in. And then he's over it and we go back to watching dinosaur movies.
I thought his mood would change a little when I took Brody apple picking last weekend with my girlfriend Samantha and my sister and her family. It didn't. I sang the song to him with the bubba teeth for added flair. Nope...not funny. He hated it.
I'm smiling just thinking about it and I thought I would share the cute video with you, because as of today, the gnarly teeth are officially retired.
