Remember Captain Caveman? I loved that old cartoon! So did my husband. Who has a small mouth. Now, there's a lot of room in the inside of his mouth, but stuff has to fit past his small lips. Okay, maybe his mouth isn't that small. Okay, his mouth is pretty average sized.

I, on the other hand, have been blessed with a rather large mouth. I've heard comments about my "voluptuous lips," etc. But, basically, I'm one of those people that can fit my whole fist in my mouth. Big Daddy finds it hilarious. One of his nicknames for me when we were dating was "Captain Cavemouth." If I yawned, he would cower and yell, "Don't eat me!"

Lest you think Big Daddy didn't get any playful teasing, I often referred to him as Sideshow Bob.

That's pretty much how Big Daddy's hair looks when not in a pony tail (thanks to for the photo).

Here is a photo that, thankfully, has yet to make it into any family albums or slideshows about Africa. You can see the beginnings of Captain Cavemouth (and the fact that I spent a great deal of time in Africa topless ...).

For more embarrassing memories captured on film, check out We Are THAT Family.

I think it is perfect! Captain Cavemouth and Side Show Bob could make a great spin-off show.

My mom has quite a few pictures of me and my sisters running around without tops when we were younger and we weren't in Africa!

Oh, and I had totally forgot about Captain Caveman! I used to love that cartoon!
