A new year, a new milestone

Originally published at Big Ugly Man Doll. You can comment here or there.

As I turned out lights tonight, Number One Son rolled over and mentioned, quite casually, that he’d squashed a bug that was crawling on his bed and put the tissue he’d used to do so in the trash.  You know, like he did that all the time, instead of hyperventilating and running up the stairs to find me.  Huzzah for killing your own bugs!

The funniest part was that he mentioned “it kind of stinks a little where I squished it.”  I examined the carcase of said bug, still in his trash can, and explained why they call them “Stink Bugs.”  I think he thought it was even cooler at that point – hey, stinky!

I now go to bed secure in the knowledge that if any more bugs wander by, he’s on the job.

Yep, looks like another post from the Big, Ugly Man Doll!
