Don't forget to glosh

In honor of the three thousand tons of candy the noisy boys hauled in last night, here’s a recap of our recent trip to the dentist:

Me: Wow. You got a goody bag from the dentist?
Twin A: Yup. Look at all of this stuff! (Pulls out stickers, pencils, and a yo-yo)
Me: Cool. When I was a kid, we just got a new toothbrush.
Twin B: We got those too. And these! (Holding up his new toothbrush and flosser.)
Me: Look at those nice flossers!
Twin B: They’re not flossers, Mom, they’re GLOSHERS.
Me: No, they’re called FLOSSERS. They’re for flossing your teeth.
Twin B: No, Mom. The dentist said they’re GLOSHERS.
Twin A: Yeah. They ARE gloshers.

Whatever. No need to nit-pick on the details. As long as they’re actually gloshing their teach, I’m good with that.

Especially after last night. Holy cow. You’ve never seen such efficient trick-or-treaters! They literally RAN with their neighbor friends from house to house. I actually broke a sweat trying to keep up. Which is a good thing considering I must have eaten some thirty-eight small-sized snickers bars yesterday. My head is still buzzing.

Well... Not to brag or anything,(OK, so I totally AM bragging) but I have totally arrived! After years of escorting my kids around the neighborhood- this year Teenage Son took Young Son trick or treating! Husband and I just got to stay home and pass out the candy!

Woo Hoo!

Wow.

And I thought the gloshers thing was very funny.

LL - I know. And 38 was just an estimate. It may have been even more. (gulp)


FrazzMom - I really enjoy the trick-or-treating part. I didn't get to do it as a child, so I am living vicariously through my kids now!

28 -- Oh my glosh, indeed!!
