For the last few months, Asher has been using "my throat hurts" to mean anything on his body hurts.  It could be he stubbed his toe, has a stomach ache, or even a poked eye.  It has NEVER meant that his actual throat hurt.  So a short while ago I said something to the effect of, "He just needs to have  a sore throat once so that he can understand what part of his body it actually is."  The problem is that I didn't really mean it, but sure enough he has come down with strep throat.

So, to test my potential gift of issuing curses, I am trying the following: "The makers of Teletubbies just need to be forced to watch their own show for a few hours so that they will understand the error of their ways."

With any luck, the show will be virtually eliminated within a few weeks.

(Disclaimer - my kids have never really watched Teletubbies, but I personally am creeped out by that baby in the sun.  It's just scary!)

That Sun IS the creepiest thing EVER! I mean really - its like that Clown in the horror movie that makes you hate Clowns forever kind of creepy.

Hope Asher is feeling 100% again!
