Unintended Hilarity

My boys are big into practical jokes.  Most of the time it's hilarious.  I'm trying to teach them not to let it go too far or turn into things that make people feel bad... But an ice cube down the shirt never hurt anyone, and it keeps life fun.

So, last night when playing cards came out of the ice cube dispenser it was only natural for Eric to respond with "Alright, who is the joker who put cards in the ice maker?"

It took me a minute to process this because I remembered something happening with the cards but nothing to do with the ice maker.  So once my summer induced brain fog lifted a little I remembered. Those cards had been put on top of the refrigerator, but not quite far back enough, so when I had opened the freezer they fluttered down to the floor.  I picked them up and put them up on the top of the refrigerator again.  SO, apparently some of them made their way down into the ice dispenser.

I never would have dreamed even if I tried to orchestrate this little funny event that they would come all the way through and into a cup.

Life is funny that way!  Sometimes when you least expect it you get a good laugh.

Mystery Rashes

I just took my two little ones to Publix for a few things.  While Ben was getting out of the car I noticed some little pink dots on his feet and legs.  Now, it's not all that strange for Ben to get rashes. He has seriously sensitive skin.  But this rash was different that what I'd seen.  As Zack got out of the car, I saw the exact same spots.

My mind raced.  What on earth? Zack NEVER gets rashes.

I listed the possibilities. 

Allergy?  - Hadn't fed them anything unusual and they wouldn't have the exact same allergic reaction.

Virus?  - They probably wouldn't show up with the exact same symptoms at the exact same time. 

I grew more and more perplexed over this when suddenly I remembered.  They were pouring some strawberry banana juice earlier in the evening and spilled it all over. They cleaned it up as I asked them to. 

I got home and prescribed baths for both and sure enough, the mystery was solved.  Juice splash.  Thank goodness :)
