Nose licking and the Hokey Pokey

Today as Howard and I were trying to buy a second car. I’m not even going to go into details how that went, not worth the time. But anyway, he’s holding Maddie and for some reason (probably because she still had a piece of chicken nugget in her mouth) she was doing a…well rather strange thing with her tongue. With it half way out of her mouth, she was sucking on the damn thing making herself look like a puppy that is begging for attention. She hasn’t done it in MONTHS and it absoutely cracked me up when she was making this face at the manager of the car dealership.

Howard then holds her up to his face and mirrors her actions. She stops, he leans in for a kiss and there goes the tongue rodeo, once again. She was licking his nose with abandon. He was giggling like a little girl, it was the cutest damn thing EVER!

Shortly after our bouncy 6 year old gets in the car she explains that during PE today she fell while running and twisted her ankle. She then says her foot still hurts and Howard suggested that we go to the doctor straight away and get her foot cut off immediately! With a sigh, she agrees and tells him to go ahead. He takes the long way home, looking like we are going to the doctor and then she started a very serious conversation…

Kenzie: “But mom, if the doctor cuts my foot off with scissors {I don’t know where the scissors part came into play but anyway…} then I won’t be able to do the hokey pokey anymore.”

Me: “Well, that’s reason enough booger. Daddy, no surgery today.”

And we head home. She jumps out of the mom mobile and skips inside as I follow behind her, holding Maddie while she’s holding onto my lip saying, ‘oh wow’. I love being their mom.
