...until having children!
I was on the phone with my dear friend, Shannon, on my birthday when I said to David:
"You may NOT use my kitchen tongs to catch lizards!"
Honestly, you'd think that would be a no-brainer. Things that I use for food preparation shouldn't be used to pick up live animals, right? Apparently, to my boys, things can be used for multiple purposes. There's no problem when it can be washed. Unfortunately, the very idea that the kitchen tongs could have potentially touched a live, squirming lizard just grosses this mama out!
Then either yesterday at breakfast, or at dinner the night before (my memory is failing me at the moment), I had to say to Aidan:
"Take that fork out of your nose! It's used for eating your dinner, not for picking your nose."
Oh, some of the many joys of having boys. ;)
