Another funny Lolo conversation

Distraught little Lolo, flashing his thumb at me, says "mom my thumbs falling off!!" Years and years of Chris scaring him with the "your thumb will fall off if you don't stop sucking it" line. Oh we are so sick sometimes. He woke up to a funny looking thumb. His skin was splitting and it sort of did look like the process was beginning. Having dry skin and an already chaffed thumb didn't help.

Lolo: Mom my thumbs falling off!
Me: oh, o.k.
Lolo: Mom, what will happen if I don't have a thumb?
Me: You won't be able to write you ABCs.
Lolo: Or brush my teeth?
Me: Yeah, I guess that would be hard to do too.
Lolo: Mom, will you help me?
Me: Sure, I'll help you stop sucking your thumb.
Lolo: Noooo. Will you help me write my ABCs and brush my teeth?

*sigh* I guess it's just not worth it. Sucking your thumb must be really awesome.


  1. Just in case you haven't heard, the guaranteed fix is to take a pvc pipe end drill two holes in it and run some string through the holes to tie it on to the wrist. Never fails!
