How does it work, then?

My mother, the dear saint that she is, stole my children yesterday to spoil them with a couple days' worth of Things Only Gran-Gran Lets Us Get Away With. When she takes the kids, we trade vehicles so that she can haul our tribe. I just spoke with the kids and my mom told me this story about my nephew from yesterday's trip to her apartment that was too good not to share:

TJ: (finding one of my pregnancy tests that I left in the van) Oooh! One of Moxie's tests! Am I pregnant, or am I not? (pulls the cap off of said test and jams the test under his armpit)

Chanel (TJ's mom/my sister): Uuuhh…Teej? That doesn't work like a thermometer does.

TJ: How does it work, then?

Chanel: Well…Auntie Moxie peed on that.

TJ: (after comprenhension slowly dawns) EWWWWWWWWW, GROSS!!! (flings test on the floor) I got Moxie's pee under my arm! Naaasstttyyy!!!

    That is too funny! My mom caught my brother playing with her tampons when he was little. He was unwrapping them and popping them out – or as he said “launching rockets!” NCLM

    LOL!! Do be sure to file it away, it’ll be worth pulling out in the future!

    lol!!! That’s awesome.
    Hey – congrats on the bfp! I have a really good friend who did what you are doing twice. And WOW is all I have to say.
    But then again, I would do it too because I love to be pregnant that much. I’d totally be a surrogate if someone asked me.
    But still – you are awesome. 🙂

    Your nephew finds USED tests in the glove box of your car…and in your purse, and in the refrigerator, and sitting on the coffee table…
