The Wisdom of Children

Pooh has had to make periodic trips out of Poland due to his health issues. Whenever he leaves, Piglet misses him tremendously, because there's no one for him to torment Stewie fights back he loves his brother so much.

Piglet, Stewie and I were having dinner the ONE night that Pooh was gone (Tigger was at play practice) and Piglet asked about Pooh.

Piglet - What's wrong with Pooh?

Me - Well, the doctor says that everyone has hair in their noses, you know?

Piglet - Yes.

Me - Pooh is missing that hair.

Piglet - Oh, okay. So the boogers just keep coming out because they're like "Whee! It's like a slide!"

Me - Yes. Exactly like that.


  1. Hahahaaa!! Kids have a way of cutting through the bull and getting right to the point, don't they?

    So sorry to hear/read about Pooh's health issues! I need to read more archives :-)

  2. Great. Now I have the image of a booger slide in my head. Not sure how I'm getting rid of that one. :)

  3. i wish i could post a snort and a giggle instead of typing *snort* and *giggle*.

    kids are awesome.

  4. Weeeeeeee....
    A buggie slide for me*!*
    Your kids need their own sitcom ;)

  5. It sounds like it's not just any slide, but perhaps a nice slippery water slide.

  6. Hmmm....just the other day, J was gazing up my nose (WHY????) and thoughtfully said, "Mommy, you have a LOT of hair in your nose." Great. Apparently I have Pooh's problem in reverse.

    Seriously, I didn't know Pooh had health issues, so I guess I need to go back through your archives....

  7. I cannot even tell you how much I have the perfect playmate for your Piglet here at my house. He wears a monkey-ear hoodie.


Comments are much appreciated! I love to hear the nice and clever things you have to say.
