  • Scorpion Bits

    April 19, 2007

    “Mommy I’m pretending this scorpion bitted me,” Sean says from the back seat. I look in my rear view mirror to see him stretch a sticky rubbery scorpion the length of his reach.

    “No, Sean,” I correct him, “I’m pretending this scorpion BIT me — not bitted.”

    “This scorpion bitted you too?!”

    Oh never mind.

      This comment is from Trista. I had to delete the original post (don’t ask) and she had already made this comment, so I am transferring it. Because I treasure each and every comment y’all. I really really do.

      “hahahaa! I love those moments when nothing we say is going to make them understand. ”

      Beautiful – I’ve had many of those same moments. And wow, English really is tricky to explain, isn’t it?

      But most importantly – did you both get medical treatment for those scorpion bites?

      Only in Texas would a child have a pet rubber scorpion and his mother would let him keep it without comment, well – except for his grammar that is…

      Beck, Medical treatment, yes. I applied alcohol to the affected area and then I drank the rest.

      ROFL! I knew that was coming!!!

      I have a 7-yr-old who still uses words in the wrong context from time to time, no matter how often I try to gently (or even not-so-gently) correct her. She couldn’t seem to care less.

      Oh, the grey hairs (along with the laughs)!

      Love it. I am going to miss those days. Jackson still says “callapidder” and I love it. I try to correct him sometimes, but it is so cute.

      just today we were talking about my son and his love for the “mocha patroller/ed” that is the remote controll, and its remote controlled items.

      What a coincidence. . .both of you being bitten by the same gelatinous scorpion that lives in your vehicle.
