The Family Blocks

Emma: Moooom!! Micah has blocks in his underwear. His actual underwear!

Micah: (suppressing giggles).

Me: Micah, honey.  Take those out.  Blocks don't go in your underwear.  Besides, you already have jewels in there.  There really isn't room for anything else.

Micah: Wha.....? I have jewels in there? I don't believe you, but I'm checking. (Pulls underwear out and looks around.)  Nope. Nothing.

Me: Oh, they're in there. They're family jewels.  You just don't know what you're looking for.

Of course, I'd backed myself into a corner here.  I ended up having to launch into an explanation of what the family jewels are, and why they are called that. Way to go, me.

  1. I thought we covered that when Claire was playing with Scruffy's toys and said 'Scruffy has 2 balls' and Daddy said, 'No, she doesn't'.
