Caroline and I were in the commissary, walking down the cereal aisle, when I noticed that she had a black smudge on her nose.
What did I do? What all mothers since the beginning of time have done, and what all kids since the beginning of time have hated.
I licked my fingers and used them to wipe her face.
Don't knock it; your mom did it, and you've done it to your kids. But did you or your kids snap back the way Caroline did, much to the amusement of passersby?
"Ewww! Mom! I wish I was a cat! Then you'd have to lick my butt and THAT would teach you!"
No, probably not.
