Germs on my bed!

There are 20 months and 3 weeks between William and Benjamin.

William is my first born. He's bigger than Ben. He talks more than Ben. He is "alpha male."

Benjamin is my second born. He's shorter than Will. He's quieter than Will. And so far, he takes whatever Will dishes out.


Benjamin has learned that you don't have to use physical force to aggravate. Sometimes just a little bit of cunning goes a long way in making your big brother yell for mom.

In recent months I've heard a lot of "Mom!! He's puttin' germs on my bed!!" from William.

Any ideas on what Ben is doing?


Carrie said... first thought is "coughing" that almost feels like an obvious.

Licking the bed?

No telling if it's like my house.

I was thinking coughing or sneezing, and then I thought about licking the bed. But those are all normal boy things.
And then I thought about that game I had as a kid. It was called 'Cooties' and it had all of these little bug like plastic things, and you had to put them together. Kind of like Mr. Potato Head, but there were actualy rules, and turns, and it was a game.
That would be a little like putting 'germs' on the bed. ;)

Coughing, licking, Cooties game...

All excellent ideas. Keep in mind that my boys share a bedroom. And think like a boy. = )

Oh my goodness!!! It is "cousin Stephanie"... I will put you on my morning coffee reader so I can keep up. The kids are beautiful!!! Tell Joel hey for Dan and me...

I had no idea you had a blog or that you had been on W@H. I don't go there much myself. There is just too much on my plate most days. It is so great to know where you are.

I have actually met Stephanie at Olive Tree in person. She is lovely and so sweet!

Keep in touch when you can. :)

How gross should we get?

1. Buggers on the bed?
2. Rubbing his bottom?
3. Putting Sam diapers on it?
4. Dirty underwear?

Oh tell me it's none of those!

Stephanie's Mommy Brain said...

LOL!!! LOL!!! Now those are suggestions only a mom with a 5 year old boy could think up! = )

Alicia's on the right track! = ) rofl!

I don't even want to say the things that come to my mind. Some how snot just doesn't seem adequate.
