Things I don't understand

Why a kid needs to lick a sliding glass door.

Why said toddler always selects Mommy's toothbrush to "clean" various bathroom fixtures.

Why he begs for an apple, then calls it a day after one bite (any guesses how often the horses get a treat after I check the fruit bowl and find THREE of these, nice and brown?)

Why he'll thumb his nose at peas, but eat a 2-week old Cheerio from under the couch.

Why a Mommy-only emergency develops every time I think about taking a shower.

Why a kid will not trust Mommy when she says, "Honey, don't smell that"

(though he just might believe me next time - especially when it comes to VICKS)

Too funny. That face is the best! So glad you caught it on camera! I don't understand those things either. Kolby always licks the Dunkin Donut counter. Gross! Germs! I can feel my skin crawl when he does it. Yet he never learns. Did we do this stuff too?

I know!! They must be some unwritten rules that children live by. I think licking everything is universally followed.

LOL at the Vicks shot, though. Maybe he WILL listen to you next time! Anya did that to me with a hot pan on the stove. About 2 seconds after I told her it was hot and don't touch...she touched! Now she knows better, I guess. Hasn't done it since!

:D These are so funny, and so true!

And I love the smell of Vicks, haha.

We went through this stage with W.W. when he wouldn't brush his teeth with anyones toothbrush except mine. I used to hide a second one just for me. ;) Toddlers are just into everything.
