One of the Many Joys of Having Sons

Yesterday afternoon Charlie came running up to me from the living room shouting "Mommy! Mommy! See what I found!" Preparing to be a good mother and celebrate his discovery, I turned to him, to see his face shining with pride. Charlie proudly dropped a live cricket into my lap.

I bet you heard me screaming. Words cannot express how much I detest bugs. I love worms, don't mind cleaning up poop or puke, but show me a bug and I dissolve into a puddle of disgust.

WHY do boys have to like bugs so much??!!

Poor Charlie. He just couldn't understand why I made him flush his discovery down the toilet.

Little known fact about me ... I am totally paranoid about bugs being flushed down the toilet. Even the most smooshed bugs have the potential of coming back to life and crawling out of the toilet when I'm sitting on it in my mind.
