In my mini-rant, I forgot about a funny story. My son came home from school and cleaned out his bag. He mentioned that some of his stuff got wet because his backpack was wet. I have no earthly idea what craziness possessed me, but I smelled the "wet" papers. I have a pretty strong stomach, but I honestly thought I was going to start gagging and heaving right them. Upon investigation--I discovered what I thought was a totally saturated bag of smashed cheez-its (I was totally emptying his bag to take it outside to air out).
My reply, "You mean the carrots and celery we served for a snack ten days ago during your star week?!?!?"
They had become pulverized in the baggie, then the half-rotted veggies had seeped out of the bag contaminating everything.
I think he's becoming a typical boy!
