We Are 100% Sanitary

Sidewalk Chalk. Nothing says summer quite like the multicolored dusty bodies of children.
And no one can demonstrate those multicolored dusty bodies quite like my spawn. There is some demon deep within the inner bowels of my begin that cannot stand chalk dust. It is the equivalent for me of getting hair in my mouth. Or running out of Dr. Pepper Lip Gloss. Almost. But I don't like it. And when Middle Twerp INTENTIONALLY gets all dusty and dry, I scold him and say, "Act like you got some sense and quit getting that chalk all over you. Now dust yourself off you nine kinds of crazy boy."In which I believe he will smack his hands together, or much to my chagrin, wipe them on his pants or even (heaven forbid) wash his hands with WATER. But being the germ cautious little person he is, he removes the chalk like so....See Mom? All clean. And look at the influence he is. Someone pass the Germ X then like gag me with a spoon. Totally.

Boys gotta love them :)

They are two of the cutest things ever!

OH! Stop!! Enough!!!!! UGH.

The feel of it makes my teeth hurt and my bottom pucker. Like fingernails on a, uh, a chalkboard.

We will let IJ and Mr. Clean handle that mess while we sit out back and drink wine.

Amen.

Just another reason God did not bless me with children! Oh my! I guess boys will be boys won't they?

At least they're not licking their hands after they hold the frog!

something tells me MT is going to be that boy who takes crazy dares when he's older. He really does use his expressions well. Maybe he'll be an actor... or more likely a stunt man.

Boys are amazing! Just wait till they're all "grown up" and going to the prom and taking finals in college; and they ask you to play frisbee on Mother's Day, and even though you know you can't catch a frisbee and you throw like a Girl, you play with them with all your heart--because one day you'll wish they were there licking chalk off their hands, keeping frogs in the house, and laughing while you try to play frisbee.

You know they do it to bug you. Act like you don't care!

I despise the chalk too, we use it at school at recess or for art projects and every time it gets on my hands, I have to wash it off quick! :)
I know you probably won't do an ask CG soon because it's losing on your poll, but is there really a Dr. Pepper lipgloss? I've only seen Bonne Bell Dr. Pepper chapstick. My sis is a Dr. Pepper addict (drinks one for breakfast every day!) and I think the lipgloss would be a fun gift... thanks!

I can't stand the feel of chalk or the sound of it and this just made me hurt and shake all over. But how I long for the little boy days. I truly miss them. He's graduating this month...sigh...
