Well, of course you did

29 Sep

Halia, holding a whole red pepper that has fallen to the filthy, dusty, dog-hair-covered kitchen floor: “Mama, can I eat the wed pawt on dis?”

Me: “No, Halia, it needs to be washed first.”

Me, noticing a bruise on the pepper and mistaking it for a bite mark: “Halia, did you already take a bite out of that?”

Halia: “No.”

Me: “Oh, good.”

Halia: “I licked it.”

    I laughed too. And I agree that it is a scenario that woudl be right at home in “For Better or For Worse”, my all-time favourite comic strip.

    My seven-year-old STILL licks stuff! So now I have two kids that lick things, including me (???), and I think that when they’re all grown up and finally not licking things, or me, anymore, I’ll be happier about that then not having to change diapers.
