Crude but Funny

For those of you with children, you know that there are moments that they make you laugh until you cry.  This evening was one of those evenings.  Daycare was closed today and Jayna was off work so she was home all day with the daughter.  Needless to say, the little one was bored with mom and happy to see me when I got home.  She was on my heels every moment and we were generally having a great evening. 

She’s 3 now.  I for some reason felt it was important to introduce her to the pull my finger game.  I said it was crude, but wait.  As expected she fell for it.  I will spare you the details, but after a few moments, she informed me that I smelled bad.  I told here there was no way that could be me, it’s probably her upper lip.  She had this terrified look on her face and looked at her mother like “what do I do about that”?  I told her she better go wash her lip.  She sprinted up the stairs and we could hear the water running.

Of course but this time we are in tears.  She returns from upstairs. 

“Did you wash your lip?”


“Does it still smell bad?”


“Well see, that was the problem.”

She still isn’t really convinced and has this bewildered look on her face but she reluctantly accepts my logic.  We repeat said process…3 times..

Once again, I apologize for the crudeness of this post but boys will be boys and little girls will fall for anything their dad tells them.
