Mosquito repellent


Nish is quite scared of dogs…much to my chagrin and distress…he just is. He once had a stray knock him over and growl and bark and he steers clears of canines since. can’t really blame him. Over the last year, he has worked it out a little bit and so now he can manage being around dogs so long as they don’t lick him. he was brave enough to gingerly pet one last weekend too. 

Anyway, with that little background in place, I guess I can move to the rather funny incident at a friend’s place over the weekend. i was there with the boys and while Amu was busy hugging and cuddling their super patient goldern retriever, Nish was bouncing safely elsewhere on a trampoline. My friend brought out some mosquito spray for the kids and I asked Nish to come to me and get some spray. “For what?” he yelled, as he bounced on the trampoline. “So you don’t get bitten” I replied as I put the repellent on him. A few minutes later, a rather happy looking Nish resumed bouncing on the trampoline. “Now Holly (the dog) can’t bite me!!” (the poor guy thought that i meant he wou;d not get bitten by the dog – obviously the more important thing weighing on his mind…who cares about bugs?!)

Mom - a word that defines me... I smell of oats, johnson's and home baked cookies I am pink, purple, green and orange and so is the floor my kids color on. Flour on my clothes and a brush in my pocket, my glasses bent out of shape and smudged with tiny fingerprints. I can't remember the date but i know almost 40 pictures books by heart. I wake up humming 'wheels on the bus'and i talk with my fingers and eyes and mouth. My bag carries band aids, napkins, wipes, crayons, papers, candy and sometimes my wallet. I know all the parks and very few of the restaurants in my neighborhood. Most of my shopping is diapers, books and paints My phd certificate lies in a roll, the frame now contains an abstract work of art by two year olds and i am prouder of that piece of paper. mom - a word that defines me!
