I Also Don't Bother Explaining Wreaths

Emily was helping unload the dishwasher. As she went to put away the bulb portion of a turkey baster, "What's this thing?"

Ever tried to explain half a turkey baster? Not worth it. I would have had to search for the other portion, which I probably already destroyed if history rings true. No idea why, they simply don't last in this house. So I went with the normal mom answer. "Don't worry about it."

And Emily went with the normal Emily... "It looks like it could suck your eye!" She then proceeded to squeeze it, press it against her eye, and release. Floop! "OW!"

Yeah. That's about right. For crying in the night. At least she still has her eye.

Guess she won't do that again... Such interesting uses kids dream up for things. For some reason it reminds me of the bird in "Little Mermaid" explaining the pipe. Or whatever it was. I don't know, it's been awhile since I've seen that movie.

I am reminded of a little girl about your daughter's age with a bright red ring, errr..."hickey" around her lips from putting the vacuum cleaner hose over her mouth just to "see what it would do"...Hickey lasted quite a few days if memory serves me right.

Gee, ring any bells?

and you are wondering where the apple fell?
