Lesson Learned, Ask Before You Smell!

Saturday Kermit was in the bathroom and Mama could see him washing his hands. He came out and had a discouraged look on his face and said, "I've got a problem." So I asked him what was wrong. He came up to me and stuck his hand up to my nose and said, "Smell." In that 1 second I had to think about smelling his hand I decided it was okay because he'd just washed his hands, how bad could it be. Perhaps he didn't like the smell of the 'pink' soap that's in there. So I took a smell. And then I think I threw up in my mouth a little bit! It smelt like poop! And this is how the conversation went.

Mama: "What is on your hand?!!!"
Kermit: "Well, I got poop on my hand and I've been trying to wash it off and it won't get off."
Mama: "Did you try soap?"
Kermit: "No, I thought I could just wash it off and it won't come off."
Mama: "Try soap!!!"

So off he went and would you believe that soap can take off the stink on your hand!

Master Chief sat on the couch on the other side of the room and by the time I dared to look at him I thought he was going to pee his pants he was laughing so hard! Next time Kermit needs to go ask Daddy to smell his hands!

That's what daddy's are for. Good thing Grandma wasn't there that is kind of like boogies!

So glad you could make that mistake & I could learn from it! :)

Oh man! You've learned your lesson. I pretty much refuse to smell my kids' hands after a similar experience!

that *would* explain why you so adamantly reminded him to use soap when I was there yesterday... rofl.
