Flying High & Mouthwash!
Hey! Popping in with a quick card because it’s my day over at Make The Day Special today. I’ve used two sets- Hello Sunshine & Into The Woods
I thought the little deer wanted some freedom and thought a little trip through the sky would be perfect. We needed him to make sure the little birdy and bee didn’t disappear off into space..he’s the ‘weight’!
At home, we’ve been trying out mouthwash.
I say ‘we’ being the kiddy royal ‘we’.
One of the boys was insistent that he HAD to have mouthwash. I looked around for some kid-friendly kind.
We found it & this morning went a little like this
Boy: ‘Mum, (shuffles nervously) how exactly do you use this’
At risk of severe spillage, I measure the correct amount out & give him the cap and now open bottle of mouthwash. He proceeds up the stairs. I’m instantly regretting the decision- waiting for the ‘oops, I’ve dropped it’.
There comes more shouting from downstairs
‘ Mum, I don’t want to do it’.
‘then don’t’, I holler back upstairs.
He comes back down. ‘I didn’t do it. I couldn’t. It tasted too bad’
I explained that it was supposed to taste un-yummy so kids didn’t drink it. You just swill it around your mouth.
He trudged back upstairs. His ‘need’ for mouthwash was waning fast.
Littliest bounded downstairs- ever the tale-teller.
‘Mum, he won’t do it. He says it’s poison’
‘No. It’s not poison, it’s ok- he can swill his mouth with it’.
They both came downstairs.
‘Mum, I swallowed a little’ he said, a little panicked.
‘It’s fine, you’re not supposed to drink it, but a little won’t harm you’
He seemed relieved.
‘Will told me I wasn’t supposed to drink it- he said it might be poison. Then I started to worry. Then he told me it was ok, if I died I’d go to Heaven’.
He was quite happy with the answer!
I explained it wasn’t poison again, and he would be fine.
The mouthwash is still relatively untouched. I wonder what will happen tomorrow?!
