So Apparently I'm Pregnant and My 4 Yr Old Needs Alcohol???

HA! Made ya look! Boy if that title doesn't get your attention, I don't know what will. Yes, you read that right, but it's NOT true! I took Lexi to school on Friday and the teacher down the hall asked me how I was feeling "these days". "Um, fine, just tired," was my reply. I meant TIRED FROM MOVING, not tired from pregnancy. Little did I know...Lexi has apparently been telling everyone at school, teachers included, that she's going to have a baby sister in her house soon. Her teacher informed me of this on Friday. I said, "Well, that's funny, because I actually just started taking the pill a few weeks ago!" The scary thing about all of this is that this sweet little girl of mine is eerily prophetic at times! But as of now, I don't believe I am pregnant, nor do I have the desire to be pregnant. (Actually, I like being pregnant, it's the actual raising of the child that makes me want to use birth control!!!)

And now, for the other "hot topic" of the week...ALCOHOL! Also, straight from the mouth of a 4 yr old..."Mommy, I need some alcohol!" "Huh??? Wha??? What did you say???" I asked. "I SAID I need alcohol!" That is what Lexi said to me last week. It certainly made me ponder REAL QUICK...oh no, has she heard me say that...what kind of shows are on Disney these days...HOW IN THE HECK DOES SHE KNOW WHAT THAT IS??? So I finally asked her, "Honey, what is alcohol?" "You know, those little purple things you give me to make me feel better, like medicine." Think think think think, retrieve retrieve, retrieve, what is she talking about??? Finally, it came to me! "TYLENOL, you mean TYLENOL! Yes, of course! Tylenol. Shew!" She had taken a Tylenol chewable a few days before. Tylenol/Alcohol...I guess they sound similar!

You are hysterical! I have often wondered when my children are going to ask for a beer or something from seeing commercials during football/basketball...etc. games.

ok - that is funny about the confusion of Tylenol and Alcohol. She is a funny kid! Even funnier is her telling the teacher about a baby sister. Funny. Our son told me the other day that he did not want another brother or sister because he only likes the one he has and no more. We all laughed.
