Swallowing Flies

On the way home today (sort of home, really on the way to the free babysitting at parent-teacher conferences, which both Hubs and I had tonight until 8:00, which leads to one more week of never-ending tiredness, but that's another story entirely)...so on the way home:

B: Mom, today we heard a rhyme about an old lady. She swallowed many things, until she swallowed a horse and died.

Me: Wow. That's really sad, and pretty gross.

B: I'm sorry I talked about it, but it was quite 'portant.

Me: Yes, it's an important story. Did you like the story about the old lady who swallowed a fly?

B: Yes! But...I was so nervous while I listened. Really nervous.


Have I mentioned lately how much I love my kids?

Wow, I really do.

I love these kind of stories! My girls are always coming up with something...lately they are debating whether our family needs a baby brother - my best friend had a new son last Saturday (her third child) it has led to some interesting stories!

She is adorable. I can just see her with her big worried eyes during the story.

I always found that particular song/story kind of disturbing, too!

Its funny how you never have to think about these things until you have kids. Time to start cramming for the midterm, What is the moon made of? Why is the sky blue? Are Cheetos really toes? How does a snake move with no legs? Enjoy every minute of it!

What a cute story and it makes me a little nervous too when I hear it! Cute. See ya.

It's nice that she was trying to protect your feelings.

Once at library storytime the Librarian tried to change the lyrics so that the Old Lady laid down and felt better. It really screwed with the rhyme's meter, and DrKnow kept correcting her. Because my kids are ghouls.

That is hilarious - and quite important!
