Mom's Test Kitchen: Crunchy Asian Noodle Salad

The Hubs & I both have tattoos.  I only have two but the Hubs has 9.  He might actually have 10, I’ve lost count at this point.  And his aren’t small either.  Granted he does have some smaller ones but he has one rather large one on his back.  It’s actually a pretty cool tattoo, its just one big word that’s written in graffiti style writing.

As Princess P has become a little older, she has become more & more aware of the tattoos, his especially.  The other day he was sitting on the sofa and Princess P came and crawled up on the sofa behind him, trying to climb on his back.

She was hugging on him and then decided she would lift his shirt.  She’s in that stage now, she likes to lift shirts; hers, daddy’s, mommy’s.  Mommy’s out of shape tummy & self-esteem won’t be able to handle this stage too much longer.

Anyway, she lifts his shirt & then she suddenly gasps like she has seen the most startling thing in her extensive 3 year life.  The Hubs kinda turns his head wondering what is wrong with his back to make her react this way & I look over wondering the same.  Princess P turns to me and says “Mommy, Daddy has the ABCB’s on his back!”
