Parenting: It's the Bee's Knees

Example 1: Mommy's little apiologist.

Gremlin: Mommy, do bees have tongues?

Manic Mommy: I...hmmm. We'll have to look that up!

(For future reference, yes, they do! They also have little pump thingies in their heads to suck the nectar.)


Example 2: How long before he asks me to drop him off around the corner from school?

HRH: Mommy, I don't like to kiss on the lips.

Manic Mommy: Not even me?

HRH: Sorry, Mom. I'm just not that type of person.

Oh, man. My little guy *demands* lip kisses. Sniff, sniff. Don't tell me it will end so soon!

I honestly think that the minute kids learn how to give kisses and hugs, they also learn how to withhold... Very small window of opportunity for the love.

lol! I'm so happy that both of my boys (10 and 13) still like hugging and saying I love you...

Bad news for his future wife!

So cute!!!!

Also for future reference: do not explain to your children that honey is actually bee vomit, because they will then remind you of this every single time you serve biscuits with honey butter at the dinner table.

Bees have tongues? I learn so much from you.

Funny stuff.
