More helpful household hints [Mar. 14th, 2005|10:39 pm]

When you're at the zoo with your three year old, and you're leaving, and he doesn't want to go, and your Husband decides that the best way to convince him to leave is to tell him on the way out you'll stop at the gift shop, and your three year old decides the gift he wants is a bag of plastic bugs that are very realistic looking, except for the fact that they're like a gazillion times bigger than the real thing, so that when you're going to the bathroom in the middle of the night and turn on the light and three of them have somehow gotten left in strategic places and you didn't know they were there until you turned on the light and in your half-asleep state think that your house really has been invaded by six-inch grasshoppers and rhinoceros beetles and some funky blue-striped bug that you're pretty sure could kill you just by looking at you hard, causing you to scream and wake the aforementioned three year old who then decides he can't go back to sleep until he's had some chocolate milk and a couple of stories - it's a good idea to talk your three year old out of the bugs and into a cute stuffed bunny instead, even if it costs more.

That's funny... instead of bunnies, though, would rubber snakes be acceptable? :P

I give you the award for the longest, coherent, run-on sentence I've ever read!

Don't worry. My 9 yr. old did the same thing with a plastic spider just the other night. On purpose.
