Great... my 3 year old saw me pull a tampon out & now she’s going around saying mommy had a mouse in her butt

5. And this dad who didn't want his coffee anyway:

2y.o eating his lunch: “Papa’s coffee hot?” Me: “Yeah baby it’s hot, don’t touch.” 2y.o: “Me blow on it for Papa?” It was at this point I witnessed with horror, my 2y.o attempt to blow on my freshly made coffee, only to spit a half eaten chicken nugget straight into it..
