And after spending a few days on vacation together as a family, I have a confession to make… my kids gross me out sometimes!
For example, when they combine all of their foods into one meal, you know the pickle, mac-n-cheese, peanut butter sandwich with a vanilla milkshake to wash it all down… I’m not sure if my oldest is a five-year-old with strange taste buds or a very pregnant woman.
Or when we’re playing a game of “I Spy” to pass the time at a restaurant and instead of using primary colors to describe something, you know, RED, YELLOW & BLUE, they use words like “I Spy something with my little eye that’s POOP color” – really? POOP color?!
Then there’s the obsession with public restrooms; it’s over the top! My little guy LOVES to go check them out just to tell me how “disgusting” the bathroom is; while my older son LOVES to go in to wash his hands so he can smell the soap. Even if it’s “gross” he’ll share it with me “mommy smell this, it’s gross!”
I’m also completely grossed out by their over abuse of “The 5-second Rule“; I mean yes we’ve all been known to break it from time to time, but these two put me to shame! Even when I’m screaming at them to put it down, my little guy just laughs and puts it in his mouth anyway!
Oh, and I’m sorry that I just don’t share their love for wet, sandy, slightly boogied Doritos…I guess it’s an acquired taste!
Don’t get me wrong, I love them, I really do, I just never realized how gross they are!
