I’m So Stinking Proud Of Him

posted by Momo Fali on September 3, 2007

This morning, I handed my son a rinsed-out bottle of laundry detergent to put in our recycling bin. As he was walking into the other room with it…because of a past experience with Poison Control, I yelled, “Don’t drink that!”

He stopped and asked, “Why?”

I said, “Because, it’s yucky. It’s gross. It’ll make you sick.”

“Yucky like poop?”

“Yes. It’s yucky like poop.”

“Yucky like a skunk?”

“Yes. It’s yucky like a skunk.”

And, although I knew he had another analogy ready to toss my way, I wasn’t expecting him to ask, “Yucky like Michigan?”

He’s getting his allowance doubled this week.
