Baby vs. Cat
We had just brought home our newest member of the family, a healthy baby girl. After maybe a couple of weeks or so we noticed that she had been sneezing quite a bit. A crowd of us were sitting around the table chatting and someone brought up the fact that she may be allergic to the cat, whom we had for six years. My son, who had just turned 8, said, "well, we better get rid of the baby, we had the cat first."

Bee Nest in the Eaves
Some time ago when my son Andrew was six years old, he stood at the base of a ladder in our front yard "helping" me determine the cause of our clogged eavestrough. As I attempted to clear debris out of the trough I was suddenly swarmed by wasps! During my quick descent, I shouted to Andrew to, "RUN, I found a bee nest!" Startled, Andrew ran to the sidewalk waving his arms in a panic and loudly announced to all the flabbergasted neighbours that "my dad found a penis on the roof, my dad found a penis on the roof!"

Santa's Keys
To ensure "his" arrival - our delightful son decided to send our house keys to the North Pole so Santa will not be locked out. Thankfully, it was the post office drop box and the keys could be retrieved!

Poison Tea
Growing up in Conception Bay, Mom and the older sisters weeded the vegetables on Saturdays. This particular Saturday, around three o'clock, Mom wanted a snack. I was chosen to go home and get tea and molasses bread. I found an empty Crush bottle in the pantry, rinsed it out, and put the tea in it. Mom enjoyed the snack, but got sick afterwards.

The girls told Dad what had happened at suppertime. When the Crush bottle was mentioned, Dad, looking pale, jumped off his chair and went to the pantry. He returned shortly after and said, "I had poison in that bottle for the cabbage grubs."

If I hadn't rinsed out the bottle, I wonder what might have happened to Mom?

Having a Beef With Mom
My mom had a way with words.

Shortly after arriving in Halifax, I came home one day to find my mom in a terrible state. "What's wrong, Mom?" "Me son, I've done it this time. I should never have left Garnish." "Why not?" I asked. "Well, you knows how the small kids in the area comes in to play with our youngsters?" "Yes; what happened?" "Well, my son, one of their mothers called and
