A recent exchange between me and my 5 year old:

Me: Please take your foot out of your mouth.

Son: Why?

Me: Well, it looks kind of gross, and your feet have been on the floor and aren't for eating.

Son: But, I have dry skin!

Me: That happens. It's okay. I'll get some lotion if you'd like.

Son: Great. What is dry skin, anyway?

Me: Your skin peels a bit when the top layer is dead, and it naturally becomes loose and falls off.

Son: this is what I'll taste like when I'm dead??

And....I'm speechless. Yet again.


What's on your mind?
