Saga of the Cootie!


For those of you lucky enough to miss this melt down, it was quite funny...although hard on the ears. It all started one day when she had gotten all the cooties out and put them together. Then, she put four of their little chairs in a row, and placed a cootie under three of the chairs. Then, she laid down under the fourth. I unwittingly initiated the first melt down that day by assuming that she was pretending to be one of the cooties...apparently that was not what she intended. Needless to say, things really hit the fan when I suggested I try pulling a "cootie leg" off her....all in jest of course. In the end, there was screaming, crying, and inisting that she wasn't a cootie and did not have a cootie leg. After much yelling, I ditched the cootie leg, suggesting we take the rather loud cootie's "mouth" off...this elicited a renewed fit....with a vengeance. To this day, if you suggest she's a cootie, you may as well take cover.....

Now we know how this all started! Maybe it didn't have to do with losing Cooties to the four year old sister? hahahaha!

We didn't say it would grow in your stomach! Just that you would have vines growing out your ears! :o)

Dearest KS,
As you have probably discovered, once you become a parent, you are given a Parental Handbook. This handbook is what you use to guide you in raising your kids. It also guides you in how to corrupt them as well as punish them! lol I'm sure that Mom had no real desire to scare you about the Watermellon seeds. She probably looked it up in the guide and saw that you were at the age to be told this. As for KP, she has no excuse like the Parental Handbook. She was just being bad! lol So the next time you decide to tramatize one of my cute little nieces, please refer to the Parental Handbook before doing so! lol
Love you!
