Crisis Averted

The Victim:

The Hero:

Tonight at dinner, Monkey5, the 3yo, suddenly started crying and screaming hysterically. She was screaming "I'm bleeding! I'M BLEEDING!" at the top of her little lungs.

I looked at her and could not see what the problem was, nor figure out how she had mangled herself while simply eating dinner quietly at the table.

My son, however, being wiser than I, realized immediately what the problem was.

He reached over, grabbed her arm, LICKED the spaghetti sauce off her forearm and then said "There, see, all better!"

Monkey5 laughed hysterically through her tears and hugged her brother in thanks - much relieved that her gaping wound turned out only to be tomato sauce after all...

My kids are weird. I'm just saying.


  1. Guffaw! THAT is funny!

    You do know that weirdness is genetic, right? ;)

  2. Oh yeah - no question where the weirdness came from LOL!

  3. Weird people are THE best!! I should know. :)

    And why is your word veri taunting me?! It just made me type in "eaterr!" Ha! How did it KNOW?!!

  4. If it would have made me type "overeaterr"...well, I don't know if I ever would have come to visit again. Heehee
