I was helping out with one of the younger classes in Primary when the teacher for Jacob's class (he's my five year old) leans over to me and whispers,
"So Jacob comes up to me and asks, 'Did you bring suckers?'
I said no.
So he asked, 'Did you eat suckers?'
I said no.
Then he said, "'Cause you smell like suckers'."
I just feel the need to admit my relief that she didn't finish with, "then he licked me to see if I tasted like suckers." Because of all the kids, he would totally do it.
I want to celebrate this small victory.
Can I just throw in a "You know you're a mom when..." moment?
You know you're a mom when:
You open the drawer that holds all your make-up only to discover your foundation sponges have fresh baby boogers smeared all over them, the face powder has been thoughtfully and painstakingly emptied all over the entire drawer, your eyeliner pencil tips have all been bludgeoned to death, and your eye shadow butchered and mixed to create the most obscene colors!
And that's when you notice your mascara is missing......
I thought I heard the rustling of a guilty, run-away diaper.
*deep intake of breath*
Sorry. Just had to get that off my chest.
