24 Apr

Picture it: It’s past bedtime. I’m snuggling with Michaela in her bed, trying to help her get to sleep. She’s quiet, momentarily. Then:

Michaela: Mom? I just thought of something I wanted to tell you about the field trip. Can I tell you?

Me, sighing heavily: What?

Michaela: We saw a cool cucumber today on our hike! But it’s not really cool. If you eat it, it makes you throw up and poop, all at the same time!

Me, sighing heavily: GO TO SLEEP!
