Today's post, in which the second pair of fingerless gloves go into the gift bag for the teacher, is at Toxophily.
Meanwhile it's time for our Bonus Feature: Kids Say The Darnedest Things, Personal Hygiene Edition!
1. While bathing Cady Gray, she was trying to "give" me squirts with her squeezy airplane. "Just what I wanted for Christmas!" I joked. "That's exactly what I told Santa when I sat on his lap."
"Mom, you're too big to sit on Santa's lap!" she objected.
"Oh no!" I exclaimed. "How am I going to tell him what I want for Christmas?"
"You can stand beside Santa and talk to him," she suggested.
2. Shortly after this helpful exchange, Archer came barreling into the bathroom to go to the potty. Engrossed in the bath, I paid little attention until I heard, "Uh, Mom? There's one of Cady Gray's socks in there."
"In the potty?" I asked, aghast. Then I remembered that she'd flung her clothes into the air after taking them off. She must have scored with one of her socks.
Before I could complete that thought, Archer reached in gingerly, fished out the sopping anklet, and tossed it into the hall. As he settled down to do his business, he announced triumphantly, "Mom, I am in the job of getting things out of the potty."
