    I have a lot of those same questions!!!! Sometimes life is just that way and there are no answers. I’m just glad God is still in control, and I just don’t have to worry about a lot of those annoyances!! I’m pretty sure you were still in a nighttime diaper at 3 🙂 Love to you!!!

    and conversely (sort of) why does coffee breath smell like skunk? tea breath like ass? and why does tea seem to rot people’s teeth? or is it their breath that rots their teeth?

    Why does spinach make my teeth feel like they’re wearing little sweaters?


    thesweet Reply:

    Yes! The chalky sweaters! It’s something about chelating minerals, or bound calcium, or sumpin.

    Yep, because bacon tastes gooood. (And my kids grind their teeth at night too–the dentist said they would outgrow it.)
