After I put India down for bed, the house was quiet. But then I heard a sudden scream from her room, and she started bawling. I rushed in to see what was wrong, and she told me she got a boo-boo on her tongue. I’m assuming she bit her tongue. She was really upset, and really crying. I tried to comfort her, but the way I usually assuage a boo-boo is to kiss it.
She hadn’t forgotten.
India came at me with her tongue sticking straight out of her mouth. “Kiss it, mommy, kiss it!”
And I did. I repressed my gag reflex and kissed her tongue. It had to be done.
Ewwwww. I’m so grossed out right now.
