Driving home from the volleyball game today, my daughter told me her back really hurt and she had stomach pains. I started to laugh. Then I panicked. Then I smirked.
BUG: What, Mom?
ME: You know what that means?
BUG: It really hurts, Mom.
ME: Well, I will give you some Midol when we get home.
BUG: What? NO! NO, Mom! You can't give me that stuff. That is what you too when you were pregnant. I'm not pregnant. I don't even think about that stuff. I don't want that MID...whatever you said. NO!
ME: What in the heck are you talking about? I didn't take that when I was pregnant.
BUG: Yes, You did. The doctor prescribed it for you. You had to take special vitamins.
ME: (laughing) Uh. Yeah. Those are not prenatal vitamins. Midol is for premenstrual cramps.
ME: I so love you. I love that fact that you are so innocent. Now, remember if you come within 1 foot of a boy, you could get diseases in your downstairs or pregnant.
BUG: Mom. Seriously? I'm not that dumb.
