Me: What?

LM: Look at the size of the booger I pulled out of her nose!

Me: Whoa! That's like a grape!

Lauren: No! That's MY boogers! Waaaaa!

LM: Until you're eighteen, they're MINE, and I'll take 'em whenever I want.

Me: That's right, listen to your mother.

Weird Parent Conversations, part 2

My wife (yes, and I) has been trying to get back on track after all the holiday eating...but developed a ROLO candy addiction whcih has proven harder to break than U of M beating the Buckeyes. I've been trying to help her with encouraging comments and hiding of the ROLO's bag when found in their hiding placees. She was getting dressed for church the other day and had this conversation with our 6 year old.

MOM- UUGGGHHHH GRRR UHH (pulling on her pantyhose)
6YO- what's the matter mommy?
M- Mommy's pantyhose are getting too tight... I guess I need to buy some more.
6- No, you need to stop eating all those Rolo's

true story...

Weird Parent Conversations, part 2

Boogers are the worst.  I would rather deal with a dirty diaper.  My 2 week son had green boogers this weekend.  Impressive for a 2 week old I thought.

The My boogers part is classic.  And of course followed by the Waaaa!!!!  I sure as heck hope that the whining thing is just a phase, because if that is a permanent character trait of my 2 year old then she will definitely earn the Debbie Downer nickname.
