God Rescue Merry Gentlemen

Joseph is way into singing lately. He likes a lot of Bob Dylan songs that I have on cds so when we're in the car I put them on and he just sings his little heart out. It's the cutest darn thing you every did hear. His favorite thing to sing is Christmas carols though. I have one on a cd by the Bare Naked Ladies that he likes a lot. It's an upbeat version of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen." Only, guess how Joseph sings it "God Rescue Merry Gentlemen". It kills me.

Yesterday we were all in the car and we drove past these two guys in black jackets and ties riding bikes. I said "Mormons! I didn't know there were Mormons in Minnesota!". Joseph said "What's a Mormon?" I tried to explain that it was a religion. He said "What's religion?" Geez. How do you explain that to a very bright 5 year old? I don't think I did a very good job.

Elle has a cold that just won't go away. She's mostly ok now but she's making some out of this world boogers. I go to wipe one away and it it just keeps coming and coming and coming. I don't remember Joseph ever having foot long boogers. My little girl must just be an exceptional booger maker. Lucky her. Lucky me because I'm always the one that ends up with them on the shoulders of my shirts.

One time I was courted by the mormons. My idiot roomate invited them in and gave them my phone number they were calling me for months on end. My advise..look down and just keep going.

That's what I try to do when I see a foot long booger on Jenny's shoulder too-look down and just keep going.

Have you ever seen a foot-long Mormon booger? That's the worst.
