We all have it. That gag reflex has saved us all many times from choking. And, it has probably embarrassed us just as many times. I've noticed that I have a child who has a SEVERE gag reflex. Recently, I was brushing my teeth when she walked in my bathroom. I am, by no means, a gross tooth brusher. I don't make weird sounds or anything. But, for some reason, my daughter starts gagging every time she walks in on me brushing my teeth. She gags; then takes off running. The other night, her sister didn't rinse the sink out too well after her own oral hygiene routine. Sure enough, Eva walked in the bathroom and started gagging when she saw the sink. I could hear her from upstairs.
This morning, I asked Eva to bring me Jacks laundry. Jack is a 15.6 year old young man who plays soccer...quite often....4 days a week....and sweats. You guessed it. Eva started seriously gagging.
She can eat larvae and grasshoppers, but cannot stand stinky stuff or watch someone brush their teeth.
Moxie, the girls, and I went for a short hike last weekend. The weather was perfect. Each of the girls have gotten quite a few ticks on them this year, so we always wear hats and checks their legs and heads whenever they've been near or in the woods.
Eva was the only one who ended up with a tick on her leg.....The price you pay for loving the great outdoors.
We had dinner with friends on Monday. The girls tried a bit of fishing in their pond....no luck.
We had a great time with friends, though. They introduced my girls to boxing on the Wii. Eva was sore for a couple of days afterward. Maybe I should take up boxing...on the Wii.
Now, I am going to show you a before, during, and after picture of Jack. His friend, Abby, will be mad that I posted this picture because of her closed eyes (but she still looks lovely, along with her sister)...but it tells the story. The gang was enjoying chatting...
....then Jack started getting itchy...very itchy.
He ended up being miserable. So, I guess he is allergic to their grass...or their house...or them...
Jack was better by the next morning...after we pumped him full of antihistamines. Poor guy.
Fifty more days until we see Zach and Jordan!
