*Yuck* *Blech* *Spit*

Although I love him dearly, my son is trying to poison me.

I let Lucas play in the water in the bathroom sink at least a couple of times every day. He loves it, and he gets clean fingernails...it's a win-win situation. Or so I thought. Every morning I stumble into the bathroom and brush my teeth...in the dark and without my glasses on. Every night I brush my teeth...in the dark and without my glasses on. This morning I was cleaning the sink after Lucas had played for a good long while and noticed something. He often plays with our toothbrushes, they talk to each other and go on watery adventures...I guess...I usually use that time to drink my diet Pepsi out of the bottle standing in front of the fridge so that I don't have to share...anyway...back to the point. My toothbrush was FULL of gunk. Nasty microscopic black gunk. I noticed that Luke's toothbrush was perfectly clean, however. I brought him upstairs to show me how my toothbrush got so yucky, and he pulled out the sink stopper (I didn't even know it came out like that) and showed me how he uses my toothbrush to clean it. BARF! I have no idea how long he has been doing this to me...let's say a little prayer it was just the one time...yeah right!

I always taught my first graders to change their toothbrushes at the beginning of each season-a reasonable association for youngsters. Maybe Lucas somehow got that message!!!and reminded his mom that autumn is upon us!

Hi,

Just discovered your blog and laughed for an hour while I read it. Great posts! While I am sixty now, they took me back to the time when I was a mother raising a delightful daughter by myself. Life has never been so sweet since. Enjoy it all!
