Powerful stuff

The title of this post makes it sound like it might be deep and thought-provoking. I assure you it will not be.

We were bathing the girls last night and I was putting some special prescription cream on Addie's eczema. She's got these sores behind her knees that just look awful, poor thing! So Ems is getting lathered up with her beloved "purple" lotion which suddenly isn't good enough and she asked Gary if she could have Addie's lotion.

"No," he said. "Addie's lotion is pretty powerful stuff. It might hurt your skin."

"Oh." And she dropped it. (Good girl, Emma!)

A few minutes later, I had finished drying her hair and was brushing it. In a rare Osborne moment, all was quiet, even with the four of us merely inches from one another. And then Emma tooted.

"Emma!" we exclaimed, while trying to stifle our giggles. Because yes, even grown-ups think tooting is funny sometimes. Come on, admit it.

With big eyes, and a whole bunch of seriousness, she said, "That was powerful!"

We busted up laughing and even Addie did too!


  1. That's hilarious...she is so funny!
    We get lots of giggles out of toots too.

  2. That's hilarious! :D

    We laugh at um...toots...all the time! They're funny!
