Open Wide...

I picked up the boys from their mother this morning to take them to school.

Nothing special there; I do it every day.

This morning, after we got into the line of cars waiting for the doors to open and shut the car off (greenhouse gasses bad, continuing to live good), Hunter dropped down the sunvisor, opened the mirror, and began to stare into his mouth.

"Hunter," I asked, as any responsible and confused parent would. "What are you doing?"

"Nothing, Dad. I just like to stare at my uvula."

I'm continually impressed by the randomness of my son's fascinations.

Plus, since I still think of the uvula as "the hangy-down thing in the back of your throat", he's already proven that he's smarter than me.

At least he wasn't staring up his own nose.

Or mine.
Thanks for reading my ranting,



  1. Kids are wonderful entertainment sometimes.

  2. Wow, Brad, your kids have brains and creativity (spiderman trap, lol!). Your pride for them beams through in your posts :) What a joy it is, to stop by and read your "rantings."

    Kelly :)

  3. lol! You're always good for a laugh. You're boys too. Thanks for sharing these tidbits from your day. I really enjoy them. :)

  4. Hmm, I always thought of it as the dangly bit, instead of the hangy-down thing. To Hunter's credit, Uvula definitely sounds dirtier, which I'm sure is what he was going for.
