Things They Say

Tyler, when he and I were on our way back from the grocery store…

“I wish Lily was here.”

Me: Chase, let me wipe your nose.

Chase: It’s ok Mommy, I can just sniff it up.

The boys yelling in the general direction of a snake we found in our yard…

“Go somewhere else! We don’t want you to eat us!”

Chase: “I can’t go swimming because I have the hiccups.”

Jackson: “Mommy, you’re not my friend.”

(5 minutes later)

“Mommy, you’re my best friend!”

Tyler really gets into his food….

Ha! I kill me.

Splinter update! Tyler actually had SIX splinters in his hand yesterday. Most of them were really deep and Tyler got tired of me digging around in his hand. Soaking in water wasn’t doing anything but turn his hand all wrinkly. Thanks to Andrea’s tip though, we picked up some special salve and it worked! By last night all 6 splinters had moved out enough that we could get them out.

    Andrea - so glad to hear that that stuff worked for you guys. I actually only know about it, because my husband is a lobster fishermen and is constantly getting tiny fish bones in his hands from baiting traps….ReplyCancel

        Andrea - Oh yuck! I hate lobster, and my husband ate so much of it growing up in a lobstering family, that he doesn’t care for it either!ReplyCancel

          Helen - LOL! I only grew up surrounded by lobstermen, (none in the family until my brother was a stern-man in HS) so never got sick of it 🙂ReplyCancel

    RoseAnne (mom and grandma) - Where did you find the salve (as in…what was it near in the drugstore)? It sounds like a good thing to keep on hand.ReplyCancel

      Helen - Walgreen’s said when they carry it, it’s in the first aid section. I ended up at CVS though (because Walgreen’s didn’t have any) and they keep theirs behind the pharmacy counter.ReplyCancel
