Mother's Day Grooming Advice

Spoken by the youngest at a very early hour, inches from my head on the pillow:

“Those lines there (finger poke) are they wrinkles?  I think you are getting wrinkles.  That means you are going to die soon.”

Followed by:

“Did you know  you should always check your eyebrows for dead flies?  I checked and I found one there yesterday.”

Hope your Mother’s Day was a good one!

    Dead flies in his eyebrows or yours? 🙂

      Ya know, after I had to go pick him up at the nurse’s office today (he RAN into a metal pole — he’s fine) I pointed out that he bears some responsibility for those wrinkles. And I wouldn’t be surprised to find them in my eyebrows at this point.

    It is not a good idea for me to sip my drink as I read your post – I came dangerously close to spluttering it everywhere! Morbid and hilarious all at the same time – love it! 🙂

    You have to admit….he is never dull!

      Dull would not be a bad thing!

    My oldest once helpfully pointed out the “mad triangle” between my eyebrows.

      And can I guess at whom you were mad? : )
