Something that, as a parent, you really don’t want to see

is your five-year-old avidly licking the sole of your shoe.

(Hypothetically, of course.)

She’s gonna have one fine immune system, if she makes it to adulthood.

UPDATE: My mom says I shouldn’t have left my reaction out of the story. Here was my reaction: “Rose, stop that. I said STOP THAT! You could get very sick from doing that! YOU COULD DIE!!”

    Please have her checked for worms immediately.

    You know, I can certainly expect to see a one year old licking a shoe. But a five year old? Was there gum on the bottom? Ewww!

    Oh, and thank you for the information on the Monet painting today. I appreciate the cultural help, since I am clearly not competent in that aspect!

  3. Melanie J says:

    Yeah, I was thinking gum on the bottom, too.

  4. Jason says:

    OK, you you sweet ladies are really grossing me out.

    I’m thinking you must have stepped in chocolate. All chocolate is fair game.

  6. Jason says:

    Is not!

    LOL, ewwwww! That’s so funny yet disgusting at the same time. Rose is such a precocious lil pumpkin!

    Sometimes I identify with Rose too closely.
    I licked the bottom of Benjamin Goets’s (grammar?) shoe when I was… 5.
    The thing is, I did it for a prize. They (Benjamin and Rachel) had those amazing Japanese cracker snacks (that was the first time I had them, and I’ve been hooked ever since), and who knows who thought of it…but basically, they gave me the snacks as a reward for licking the bottom of their shoes. And I got lots of attention for it, too. And I’m pretty sure I licked it more than once (only the one event, though).

    GAAA. I can’t believe I did it. I can’t believe I remember it so vividly. And I can’t believe I just told this story to the Internets.

    (That said, I do seem to have a pretty good immune system) 😉

    LOL, Lili. I never would have known. You boot-licker, you.

    Please get Lili tested immediately for worms.
