I think we need a different toy

Peyton loves the game Cootie.

It’s a fun game, I don’t blame her.


Wendy’s new toy in their kid’s meal is a miniature Cootie…with a pull string that makes it wiggle all around.

After playing with it a while, Peyton comes flying into the kitchen yelling, “Look!”

She tucks the toy between her legs and pulls the string.

“My cootie vibrates!”

Me?  I’m thinking a bottle of Excedrin sounds GREAT right about now.

I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried to, people.

    Ha-ha! That’s too funny! Can’t wait till my son speaks. Or can I? At least Peyton doesn’t touch herself in public and say, loudly, PEE! PEE! PEE! I’m working on potty training:) Can you tell?

    oh that is soooooo funny! and i’m thinking that you need a new toy!

    when kirstyn got her first pack of hello kitty big girl panties one of them had a picture of hello kitty on the front. as soon as she put them on she would point to her *ahem* and say me-ow. her daddy went to the store and bought some very conservative plain pink panties… i can’t imagine why!
