They're Just Preparing Me for the Big Injury

The Febreeze was left out after a nap-time accident.

Stupid parents.

Mr. 6 sprays Mr. 4 in the eye with the Febreeze--because what six year-old can resist a spray bottle?

So here's what I hear first:

Mr. 6: I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

One brother apologizing to the other? The sure sign something is wrong.

Mr. 4: Ow.

Mr. 4: He sprayed me in the eye.

Mr. 6 runs away.

Me: Mr. 4, you okay?

Mr. 4: My eye is wet (I'm guessing that's better than "it burns like a m-ther f-ckng jalapeno mom.").

Mr. 6: (from the other room) Well Mr. 4. at least your eye will smell good.

Do you know how hard it is not to laugh while you're trying to punish your child?

I agree! :D

I remember my little boy throwing his bottle after drinking it straight up. I really got angry because he almost hit my head.

When he saw me raving mad, he approached me and stroked my arm. "Meme." He said. "Meme" he tugged my arm as if to stop me from being "angry."

Well, that sure made me smile. lol.

My son is only 19-months-old.

You know, I've never once wondered what my eyeball smells like until now.
