so, i am sitting here eating a piece of reheated pepper and onion pizza (i picked off all the peppers, though) and logging it in to weight watchers and trying to figure out what i can eat for dinner that only has five points, when cara walks over and says "eww! that goss! yuck!" it's a piece of pizza, for christ sake. i took the green peppers off, didn't i? she eats pizza. how gross could it really be? then i look at her and she is trying to hand me something that looks pretty, well...gross. so now i say "eww! that's gross! what is that in your hand?" this is where i get a little closer and discover that it is a chewed-up and spit out quarter of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (with the crust cut off, of course). she responds with "too much. yucky. here, fo you." thanks anyway, but i'll stick with my "goss" pizza. she defnitely out-grosses me in the what do i have in my hand category.
this gets me thinking, maybe i'll start a list of gross things that cara has handed me lately. because, surprisingly enough, the pb&j regurgitation WAS NOT the worst thing caroline handed over to me today. earlier, while i was talking to meghan on the phone, cara walks over with a poopy diaper IN HER HAND, not on her butt and says "my hiney hurt. boo boo." so i hang up on meghan and yell "what are you doing?! where is all the poop?" to which she says, "right here" and walks over and hands me some of that, too.
it is sometime later now, and baths have been taken, diapers have been changed, children have been dressed and fed, the floors have been swept and vacuumed and i am considering the things cara has given me lately. i actually don't think i will make a list, because now that i have given it some serious thought, the entire list consists of: chewed-up and spit out food products, things involving poop and mail. not much of a list, after all, she does however win the grossest thing in my hand competition for the day. hands down. oh wait...i have just been handed "bobbie's jess" (barbie's dress to the rest of us) with a comment of "eww. goss. bobbie's jess all dirty. here." she just left me with the dress to show her siblings "nakee bobbie." how long do you think it will be before i have a story about that to post on here. right now, the boys are thinking that "nakee bobbie" is pretty "goss."
ahh...the joys of motherhood...
