There is a lot I worry about when it comes to my kids. I mean, come on- the list is endless when you’re a parent. I worry about everything from the really serious- illness! drowning! kidnapping!*- to the mundane- sunscreen, bug bites & hurt feelings. But the one thing I never, ever have to worry about when it comes to Scorch is his ego getting too big thanks to his sister.
Earlier this morning, the kids were getting dressed. They get dressed every morning in the living room (a legacy from when they were too little to dress themselves and I had to keep them corralled). Today Scorch didn’t have to wear his uniform to school so he was dressing in casual clothes- in this case, a new t-shirt he got for his birthday. Scorch says to Bean: “Did you know my t-shirt says “Mom’s #1 Guy” on it?” And without missing a beat, Beaner goes: “Did you know I can see your penis? You should cover that up.” I choked on my tooth paste, I laughed so hard.
