I never know what will happen when I leave Jason alone with the kids, and the children find great fun in giving me all the details. Sometimes I gasp in all seriousness and others in mock seriousness, but there is always something like, “Mom, Little Jason almost got run over by a car!”
This time Joy asked, “Mom, did we tell you about when Daddy said we had to be quiet or he’d make us eat boogers?” Uh, no I think I would have remembered that. “Yeah, Daddy got one of Bobby’s boogers during Bible time and said we’d have to eat it if we didn’t be quiet.” Soooo who had to eat boogers I wanted to know. Evidently Little Jason our five year old was the first one to call his bluff. But my husband was prepared with what the kids told me was a fake booger.
Between the shock, awe, and laughter over my husband’s schemes I never got to the bottom of whether or not my son ate the fake booger. What it was might have concerned me more than a booger!
Well, the kids seemed to have had great fun over the whole thing anyway. I’m not sure that it helped at all in Jason’s attempt to have the kids quiet during Bible time, but you know what they say about desperate times…
*No children were actually forced to eat boogers in the making of this blog post. 🙂
Now this sounds like something that I would come up with in the heat of the moment of frustration. Love it!
