death and the kindergarten mind

K: mama!?

CK: Shhhh... It's past your bedtime... No talking.

K: but mama... I have to ask you something... It's reeeealy important!

CK: *sigh* well make it quick...

K: if you have mucus and you don't use purell do you die!!? Cause Mary says you will but I don't believe her!!!

CK: No... You won't die. She doesn't know what she's talking about. Go. To. Sleep.

K: are you sure? She was really sure.

See, now I have proof that I'm not the one making my kid a crazy person...

Mucus equals death? If Mary's mom is that kind of mom, Mary's childhood is gonna suck.

If you want to really scare her, tell her I don't believe in using Purell, I just wash my hands...

stu: she was asking because I told her NOT to use purell... just to wash her hands.

mel: oh the evil

TIM: the name "mucinex" always makes me think of an icky hot cereal.

Mie: That's about the 10th thing that one of her classmates have said would kill. They're all a bunch of death centric little buggers.

BW, Jo: In all fairness any other day I would have been laughing but yesterday... yesterday was a bad day for being a mama. If Mr. Kaos had been home I would have gone out drinking.

Lilac: I agree... though the Purell part no doubt comes from their teacher who has, I am not joking, purell on EVERY table.

Other people are always making their kids crazier than we are...

i just love that they are willing to believe other people much more readily than they will believe us. queen of hearts' friends have only to speak with mild confidence about something, all of a sudden they outrank me as the authority. whatever.
