God Bless You

I hope you aren't eating while reading this post... or about to eat... or whatever. Because, for this post to make sense - yeah - I have to go there. Anyways, consider yourselves warned.

While the Tongginator ate breakfast yesterday morning, she let loose with one gigantic, enormous sneeze. It was the kind of sneeze that sprayed... er... particles everywhere. Yes, it was rather disgusting. Especially since, at the time, she was eating peanut butter toast with banana slices on it.

Umm... attractive.

Yet still I managed to display tremendous Motherly Love by calmly wiping up myself as well as the kitchen table before telling the Tongginator, "God bless you."

TONGGINATOR: God BLESS you? No, Momma, that's not right.

TONGGU MOMMA: What do you mean, "that's not right?" Of course it's right. When someone sneezes, you say "God bless you."

(long pause)

TONGGINATOR: Oh... I thought it was "God MESS you."

Heh. Only sometimes Tongginator... and definitely when one is eating peanut butter toast with banana slices on it.

Haha! It makes sense, though, when you think about it.

They're so literal sometimes. :)

Yes very funny! Emily has a word in our national athemn that she loves because it sounds like an F bomb and for a child who wants to swear like a trooper and knows she can't always smiles when she hears the song and Fridays at assembly she always beams!

Tongginator is priceless...I can't imagine it was easy letting a big sneeze go with peanutbutter and Banana in your mouth!! LOL

Want to talk about mess? Ok, you asked for it.

Mess (and pain) brought to you by me! (In the mode of Sophia Petrillo - Golden Girls)

Picture it: Toronto, 1977 - I was about the age of the Tongginator when I was eating breakfast one morning. My brother made me laugh so hard that I ended up shooting Cocoa Puffs and milk out my nose - still in their whole form - all across the kitchen table.

God mess you, indeed. ;)

Heh indeed....she has a point!

Sarah said...

Gross! That's EXACTLY why I'm staying indoors this week. I want no one's buggers, germs, or anything else getting to me. I'm not a germaphobe, but this week I am.

Gross & Hilarious!

Peace and Hugs,

LOL...it's too cute when kids goof up every day saying, song lyrics, or stuff like that. We have a long list of family sayings thanks to Darling Daughter. She's always misxing up something.

thegypsymama said...

PRICELESS! Just thank your lucky starts she wasn't eating spaghetti sauce at the time!

Heather of the EO said...

I'm totally stealing that. Next time someone sneezes, I'm all over the "God MESS you." :)

redmaryjanes said...

I love it! Makes you wonder how many other things we have taught our children that they completely missed.
I ready about the creepy coffee guy below. I am fully creeped out. I'm glad you confronted him. It may detour him a bit to come across a strong Mom who isn't going to play along with his game.

SO cute!!

Janet said...

Eeeeewwwwww! That sounds like something one of MY kids would do....what kind of child are you raising over there, anyway? :-)

Myrnie said...

Too funny :) Alright, you went there first, so I'll go too. I hear an enormous sneeze from the back seat of the car, and then a surprised little voice "Mommy, I bleshued! I have blesh-oos on my fingers!" Heh :)

Beck said...

Poor sneezy kid. It's funny what we can cheerfully live through once we're a mother, eh?

Hope you all enjoy your weekend!

She is just TOO FUNNY!!!
Hope her first week at Kindergarten was a success!!

Michelle said...

Ha ha ha ha ha!! Well, it makes sense, after sneezing and all. Too funny!

blackbelt said...

I love stuff like that. So cute!

Stonefox said...

Ha Ha, that is so Tongginator...and makes perfect sense to me!!

Mahmee said...

Ha ha...I think peanut butter just came out of my nose!
I have had so many things sneezed on me over the years...peanut butter and banana would be a welcome treat.

Innocent mistake. It could happen to anybody. It does make more sense...

Out of the mouths of babes!

CC said...

Bwhahahha!!!!! perfect. Just perfect.

and The Flash has the world's 2nd loudest sneezes ever (prof X's former roommate holds that title). So maybe we could say, "God help our ears!" when he sneezes!

Misty said...

that is a pretty funny and clever Tongginator-ism!

side note... i know the whole bless you thing is rooted in superstition, but isn't it odd that it's the only bodily fuction for which we expect others to excuse us? i mean, we burp or pass gas, and it's excuse me, but we sneeze, we expect a bless you. weird.

Cavatica said...

I agree with Misty, we should offer blessings for burps and passing gas. The world would be a happier place - or would we rather live in denial?
