Just a Normal Night


It’s 8:30 and the kids have been in bed for the past 10 minutes.  I’m in our family room getting ready to turn on the TV when Scorch comes tearing down the stairs in full freak out mode.

“Mom, Mom! I have to show you something.  It’s really weird and I don’t know what it is and you need to get rid of it right now!”

“Whoa- slow down.  What’s right where?”  I figured there was a bug somewhere in his room – we always have a moth or 5 in the house thanks to letting the dog in and out in the evening & they like Scorch’s night light.

“It’s on my fingers and I have no idea what it is and you need to take it off right now!”

I examine his finger closely for .005 seconds.

“Seriously, bud?!  It’s a booger- go get a tissue and get back to bed!”

So…how is your night going?
