Due to popular demand, I have decided not to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Though The Foorce may be left behind in NYC, Mondays and Monday Minutes are definitely still happening here in Texas. And with more kids than ever before, I figure more kids = more Monday Minutes, because everything’s bigger in Texas, right?
And yes, I know it’s not a Monday – let’s not get picky here.
Ian (runs in, pointing to his chest): Mooommmmm, Adam drew a spot on me!
Adam (running in after him holding a marker): I did not! (Looks at Ian) No, that’s just a freckle.
Me (also looking at where he is pointing): No, that’s your nipple. Everyone has them.
Adam: Oh, it’s just a nickel. I have some too.
Me: No, it’s a nip-pull.
Adam: Oohhhh right, it’s a Nick-fell.
Ian: No, it’s a nick-pell.
Me: Nipple, guys. Nipple.
Adam and Ian (running around in circles, laughing and shrieking): Nick-pell, Nick-pell!
And with that, be careful what you wish for…
