Have you heard the phrase, “lesser of two evils”? I’m sure that this will completely gross some people out, but it is one of the crazy random things that has crossed my mind today while staying at home with my beautiful children. Even beautiful children can be gross. I’m talking about boogers here. I have been blessed with the opportunity to rear both a boy and a girl and there truly is a difference in genders besides you know what. The booger thing is probably not gender specific, but I have noticed that while my beautiful, yet unmistakably boyish boy likes to eat boogers; my equally beautiful, self-proclaimed “girly girl” tends to be more of a wiper. Which, I am quick to say that I am so glad that she chooses not to digest her boogers; however, I am none too happy to find the little crusty things everywhere from her bed sheets to the trim panel of the door which is located next to her car seat. And, there was the time that I was walking her to her room one evening for bed and she very kindly wiped a long stringy one on the hallway wall. I really hope they both outgrow this picking stage real soon. The End.

I just got back from taking my five-year-old and 20 month-old to the county library. Let’s just say that I imagine they are very happy that the books are not due back for two weeks.
I just want to share some of the cute things Sam has said lately. My sister-in-law is in town and she took Sam with her to have lunch with some friends. As they were leaving, Sam told them all, “Nice to meet ya!” He is so polite!
Later that night John and I were in the restroom giving him a bath. We got him out of the tub and I was drying him off when he looked me right in the eye and said, “Stupid Mommy.” Not so cute and not so polite. He got his mouth popped for that one.
A couple of days ago, our dog Hydro hurt her leg. She could not walk on her right front paw so she would hop. Sam kept chasing her and we would tell him not to chase the dog because she is hurt. At one point, he laughed and said, “Hydo is bouncing! Look at her bounce!” I never thought about it before, but she did look like she was bouncing around the house. What perspective!
Finally, last night I was watching re-runs of “What Not to Wear” and Sam was in the room with me. He got my attention and said, “Shut Up!” Of course, I told him not to say that and then I wondered aloud, “where has he heard that?” Then in the background of my thought, I heard Stacey (from the show) say in her sing-song voice “Shuuuuut Uuuuup!” I turned the t.v. off and we went to say our prayers and go to bed. No more watching t.v. with Sam.
