Lather


"Mom? Will you keep me company while I take a bath?"

"Sure, Honey. Use that soap and washcloth on your face, please."

"Did you know Geon-Hee and I have almost the same tennis shoes?"

"I hadn't noticed that. Use that soap and washcloth on your face, please."

 "Mom, who's your favorite Jedi between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader?"

"Luke, I think. Use that soap and washcloth on your face, please."

"Mine's Darth because he's really Anakin Skywalker."

"Bob, will you please use that soap and washcloth on your face, please."

"What did you say?"

"Soap. Washcloth. Your face."

"Maybe next year for my birthday we could go to Lego Land?"

  3. LOL...great post...I usually have to repeat things over and over, in succession like a song until he hears me and then asks..."Why do you keep saying it?"

  4. This shows tenacity. It'll serve him well as an adult. (At least that's what I'm telling myself because we play the same game here.)

  5. This is my life, except without so many "pleases" and with a "(three syllable) mo-o-om, why do you keep telling me?" tacked onto the end.
