Random Tid Bits

  1. I had a conversation with the boys about soda.

    Me: I just don't want you boys drinking soda a lot. I know someone at my work that drank Mountain Dew and got kidney stones.

    Mica: What are kidney stones?

    Me: Well it's like a small stone(s) that is trapped in your kidneys. The only way to get it out is by peeing it out. If it's really big they have to do surgery. I heard that peeing out a kidney stone sometimes hurts worse than having a baby.

    Mica: I don't want to pee out a stone. I won't drink Mountain Dew ever.

    Me: Well don't drink Mountain Dew.

    At school a few days later Mica won a prize. He picked to have a soda. It surprised me that they even had that option considering that they don't even want parents to pack juice in their school lunches.

    Mica ran up to Daddy after school and whispered: Dad is this soda going to give me kidney stones? I don't want to have to pee out a stone!

    Daddy knew nothing about our conversation about soda. He laughed and said: I think if you just have one soda you're fine. 

  2. Mica hates spiders. I don't know where he got this fear of spiders.

    Mica: I just killed 3 spiders in my room with my Indiana Jones whip.

    Me: Yuck, make sure you clean the spider guts off your whip and floor with toilet paper. Are you sure there were 3 spiders you killed?

    Mica: Ya Mom I'm sure. 

    *Cleaning it up Mica said Oh I guess it was just 1. The others are just crack designs in our wood floor.

  3. Both boys love to talk about natural disasters. Isaak calls a hurricane "Hore-i-cane".  It's too funny to correct.

  4. Mica has been asking me for weeks: Mom am I old enough to have a frappe yet?

    Me: What's do you want?

    At first I don't know what he's talking about. He pronounces it as "frape" rhyming with grape.

    My answer: No you can't have a frappe.
  5.  We went to a wedding this last weekend. In the reception hall people were smoking.

    Me: Look at that the worker...she is smoking.

    Daddy: What are we seriously stuck in the 1990s?

    Me: That's sort of what I was thinking.

    Daddy: I thought that was illegal to smoke inside everywhere.

    Is it illegal to smoke in public places where you live. It's illegal to smoke inside all public places in Nebraska. Even bars and bowling allies are smoke free.

I laughed over killing crack designs in the wood floor :-)

My boys aren't allowed to have soda - unless we are in Disney World where they have this coke place where you can get coke from all over the world. That's it, though. I am mean ;)

Some of the places here are smoke free, but we went to eat at a bar a few weeks back and it reeked of smoke, so I guess it isn't banned everywhere.

I did let Allison have a Dunkin Donuts iced coffee a few weeks back. She was so excited until she tasted it and thought it was the nastiest thing she ever had lol.

I've never tried a frappe. Everyone in our family gets so addicted to them, that I'm not even giving it a try. ;)

Poor Travis... He wasn't prepared for the kidney stone talk, but he gave a good answer anyway.

I'm guilty of drinking soda. Probably more than I should. Mt. Dew is what messed up my teeth and caused me to have a ton of dental work. Smoking indoors is illegal everywhere in IL. There are some places in MO that still allow smoking inside.
