The Backup Plan

We were driving down the road on Sunday evening when I looked into the back seat of the car and saw my five year old with his thumb in his nose. Our dysfunctional conversation went something like this...

Mommy: Camden, get your thumb out of your nose. You're supposed to use a tissue!

Camden: This is plan B.

Mommy: What's plan A?

Camden: Plan A is use a tissue, Plan B is pick your nose, Plan C is take a piece
of apple and use it to pick your nose. (huh?)

Mommy: (Hands him a tissue)

Camden: I just need to see if I can feel something up there (inserts bare finger
into nose tissue)

Camden: Yep, there's something up there!

I imagine you're probably questioning my parenting, so let me be clear for the record:

1. I fully support Plan A.
2. I totally believe Plan B is gross but inevitable for a certain short period of a child's life.
3. I must admit I'm actually a little strangely curious to see Plan C in action...

...anyone curious to see what Plan D could be?


...frightening

He is so clever. It's like he fully thought about what he was doing and had no fear of you catching him because it made since lol!!

I just want to know if he'll eat the apple afterwards... THAT would be great!
