I don’t like you finger bones. Will you wear gloves, please?
Actual words my kid said to me last night. Thanks for being polite? Kinda? Kids are weird and creepy sometimes. And hilarious a lot of the time. The sad part for me is that he’s obsessed with skeletons right now, so it’s pretty specifically a critique of my bones. Big confidence boost right there. Anyway, happy Halloween. I think your bones are great.
