Boys are Gross!

SCENE: Putting anti-itch cream on my oldest’s mosquito bites

OLDEST: “Mommy, why do mosquitos just love me?”

ME: (prepared with a quality “momism”) “Because you are so sweet, baby!”

OLDEST: “I need to do something to make me not sweet.”

ME: “Like what?”

OLDEST: (paused for some deep thinkin’) “I don’t know… like rub boy stuff on me or something?!”


It’s Been a Pleasure,

Your Moderate Mama
