How I know I am well-suited for raising little boys: When one of mine got a googly-eye stuck up his nose at playgroup this morning, not only was I able to both keep him from panicking and stop him from pushing it further into his nasal cavity, thus avoiding a trip to the ER, but I was also able to stop laughing long enough to help him remove the googly-eye ("Blow.") and finish gluing his turkey.

Please. Hold your applause.

Good job, little Mama! I bet I can guess which little guy put the eye up his nose! For the record, girls do these silly things, too. Gail once swallowed a penny.

Mom, I bet you would guess wrong. =)

I'll never forget the story of our friend's little boy who swallowed a penny during quiet time. They always told their kids, "Obey your parents, and things will go well for you." He came out of his room and said, "Mom, I did not obey my parents, and things are not going well for me."
