Sometimes, being a mother is...  
Freaking disgusting.

There are just certain things that you SHOULD NOT have to say.  Like:

"Don't lick your shoe."

"Please don't try to scale the walls.  Spiderman is pretend, and you're leaving shoe marks on the paint."

" You cannot eat brown sugar from the bag for a snack."

"No, you can't go out in the snow in just your underwear and boots.  You'll have to wear clothes."

But today was the kicker.  Aaron was playing Green Lantern, which, you know, I'm all for.  He asked to borrow my High School Class ring, which has a green stone in it.  I said, "Not right now."

THEN, he got quiet for a few minutes, which is NEVER a good sign, and I found him standing in front of my jewelry armoire, looking at my orbis ring. Which is a really pretty ring, with different colored interchangeable orbs you can put in, to match your outfit or whatever.

He panicked when he looked at me and began making noises like he was blowing his nose.  HOWEVER, there was no kleenex in sight.  

Ew.  Ew, ew, ew, ewwwwwwww.

Long story short, he had shoved one of those little orbs up his nose.

No, we will not be making a trip to the emergency room, but I'm going to have to sanitize the velvet lining of the jewelry box, and take a bunch of my earrings in to have the snot removed from them.  


Now I'll have to add, "Don't shove Mommy's jewelry up your nose, please," to my list.
I feel:: disgusted
I hear:: Firefly on DVD

Oh dear. It appears that Aaron and I are kindred spirits. I shoved a plastic bead up my nose when I was little. My mom did take me to the ER, but fortunately I sneezed while waiting to be seen and it flew out of its own accord.

However, on the topic of things you never want to have to say to your children, when Mer was very little and her pink monkey was still furry, she decided he was 'bad'. I have actually uttered the words 'Don't spank your monkey' to my daughter. Not a good day, that.

I just hope I never have occasion to say that to my SON.

*cackels madly*

Have you ever had to call poison control because one of your sons has eaten his OWN pooh? (I did -- so Scott has Aaron beat. Not to mention that it was only two weeks after calling them when Scott ate raw chicken out of the garbage).

Yeah - There's a reason sons are gross! Lucky us, eh?

Oh poor you! Wait til he figures out they fit in his EAR! Now that is fun. *sigh* Then again the nose thing is really nasty too- mine have done both.

I don't know if you've seen this or not... but it should make you laugh... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxT5NwQUtVM

I'm so sorry! Sounds like we both had lovely afternoons.

I just had a cup of tea (the red one). I highly recommend it!

wow... the things I can look forward to. I think this one will go on my list.

Keep giving me things to be sure to say to my lad! *grin*

I'm sorry, I just can't help but laugh *giggles* I can tell you that the compulsion to put things where they don't belong does stop eventually, but then they start wanting to put other things where they'd really enjoy...

*cackles* Remind me to lock away my jewellery? My brother has pulled tops down in public and TAKEN NAKED PHOTOS OF ME IN THE SHOWER but apart from that, he's been quite good. I'd prefer Aaron to Daniel, actually. Disgusting vs. embarrassing? Disgusting all the way. Hope that jewellery goes all sparkly and shiny again! Snot is gross.
