Do your kids have cooties?

i had my 2yr old dd sitting on the bathroom counter when i was putting her hair up this morning and she reached over and grabed my 18yr old sisters toothbrush and put it in her mouth. Ofcorse at that second my sister walks by, and i sware she freaked out like my dd had acid spit or something! Im not even sure she acutally got the toothbrush in her mouth before my sister fliped out! She actually started crying lol. I guess its not funny to my sister but oh man, if i could only show you the face she made lol! Shes STILL freaking out over it even after i bought her a new one!

Apparently my kids have cooties because they drink formula.
:) Lol! I should also tell you that my sister will actually throw up if my 4 month old spits up or even drools on her.

  • and also, my son is a cootie. I taught my girls years ago that boys don't HAVE cooties, they ARE cooties. So, ya know...

  • well, the toothbrush in the mouth is pretty gross. Its different if its your kid, like my son uses mine all the time, but i wouldnt want someone elses child (even my sister's) using my toothbrush. But the drool or spit up is a bit much. i understand some people have week stomachs, but drool? come on, grow up. on the bright side, at least there are no worries about her hving kids anytime soon!!
