Parenting tip #4702

Don’t let your five-year-old pull your head near her mouth so she can whisper in your ear if she’s just been eating a tuna sandwich and grapefruit.

As long as I’m here, here’s another Rosie-ism.  Mabel’s friend had just told me her dad’s knock-knock joke, which goes, “Knock-knock.  Who’s there?  Musky. Musky who?  Mosquito!”  Here’s how Rose retold it:  “Knock-knock.”  “Who’s there?”  “That thing that starts with bite.  Spuh . . . spuh . . .” “Spuhquito?” “Yeah!”

    Mmm…. tuna and grapefruit.
    (no, although puffball IS used as a nickname for seedy dandelions, it’s actually a type of fungus that releases a spore-cloud when stomped on. They can be as big as footballs!)

    You may call your dandelions puffballs as much as you’d like! We call ours “wish dandelions”.

    But we don’t call our dandelions puffballs! Thanks for the permission, though. (I think this is all a sign that I should really not be making comments anywhere while my brain is off on vacation.)

    Spuhquito is sort of like Musgetti.

    It’s very funny.

    Also, it sounds like a new Taco Bell invention.
