She's Alive!

You guys are great, asking me if I'm dead and stuff. I can feel the love! I'm happy to report that I'm definitely not dead. It's just summer. And, well, ya know.

To make up for my lack of posting lately, I have one doozy of a story to share with all of you. I should warn you now, if you have a weak stomach or are eating something while reading, you may want to stop reading. And then come back later because it is a seriously funny, yet disgusting, story.

A couple of weeks ago we attended an open house for a friend of mine from high school. He and his wife had just bought their first home. Very exciting! We were chatting in the front room just before making a graceful exit. Lolly and Babs had been playing well together, but had pretty much used up all of their "plays well with others" reserves by this time and were ready for dinner. I was holding Babs and was talking to them both about....something that I have since forgotten, so obviously it was very important. What is important to know is that all eyes were on me at this time.

Babs, unbeknownst to me, was picking her nose. That right there is just gross. Anyway, I was oblivious to her choice of entertainment until....UNTIL. She wiped something on my chin. I put my hand up, while stupidly asking her what she had wiped on me, and when I pulled my hand away from my face I saw that it was a great big BOOGIE!!!! AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!! It was so disgusting! I ran screaming up the stairs to the bathroom to dispose of said boogie, all the while trying not to completely lose my lunch. I figured that the only way to make this embarrassing situation even worse would be to start throwing up uncontrollably. On the bright side, everyone else found this highly amusing.

We left shortly thereafter.

Anyone want to invite us over to your house for a party now?!

Yup, you are invited, but only if you leave the kid at home. Or let me video tape it.

You're back! You're back! You're back! Hooray.

I am so happy that I managed to read this story all the way through before getting completely queasy.

Summertime should keep you away from the computer, though. Just give us a sign from time to time. :)

PS: I am going to start looking for you on Facebook. We will chat someday!!

We will remember this story when she is a beautiful, flawless bride and I promise to not share it with anyone, but I will be thinking how far she has come. :)

Okay I'm confused... in your June 4, 2009 post - other bodily discharges from this same child were not so seemingly terrifying. Yet a simple little boogie sends you screaming into the night? What would Freud say about this?

Glad to have you back!!
You've been missed!!

well hopefully it will make you feel better to know that I have a 20 month old that doesn't have a pacifier(did i spell that right) a blanket or a thumb...no he has a pointer finger that goes up his nose when a "normal" child would be reaching for his blanket or paci....sigh
