The Wild Rumpus

Parenting and family, served with a shot of vodka

On makeshift mammograms and ancient elephant innards

As a longtime newspaper reporter, I’ve written a lot of words and phrases over the years.

But every so often, parenting throws me for a loop, resulting in bizarre things my brain would not have imagined on its own.

Two such instances went down over the weekend:

“(Superhero), please don’t put the Woolly Mammoth’s gallbladder in your sister’s eye.”

This poor guy's gallbladder didn't make it back into his body, but it did fit perfectly behind my daughter's glasses while she was wearing them.

“(Sweet Pea), let’s keep the Crocodile Dentist game away from Mommy’s boobies, OK?”

My lovely preschooler unintentionally gave me a mammogram with this game. I won't soon forget it.

Creative use of toys has its limits, don’t cha think?
