Breakfast Conversations in Boyland

I am curious. If you have all girls, what do your breakfast conversations sound like? If you want a glimpse into what breakfast conversations sound like in Boyland, then continue reading...if you dare.

Amidst taking bites of my high protein Kashi cereal, Cade decided to inform me of what went down yesterday evening. I had left a hair clip on top of the toilet in their bathroom. Somehow, (some things in Boyland do, indeed remain a mystery) the clip found its way into the toilet while Eli was taking a nice little pee. Cade, being the responsible big brother that he is, decided to retrieve my hair clip.

I started choking on my high protein cereal that was all of the sudden tasting quite chalky. Oh, wait, it always tastes chalky, that is right. I asked Cade if he washed his hands with soap immediately after he rescued the hair clip. He laughed and said, "Well, no Mom, I was getting into the shower and I knew the water from the shower would rinse it right off." Insert: my heart sinking while I pondered if I had not taught my boys anything. I then asked him if he later washed my hair clip with soap. I don't even know why I bothered asking. All I can say is that I am glad he decided to tell me the story before I used the clip again.

So proud of himself, Cade inserted, "Well, at least I waited until Eli was finished peeing to get the clip out!!!"

And, that, friends, is what a typical breakfast in Boyland conversation is all about.
