"I do the peeling here!"

Emily has discovered a new past time and I'm grossed out, completely horrified, and laughing my fanny off all at the same time.

She is making it her mission to peel off my dead skin as I shed my sunburn.

"You are going to look back on this experience and be completely grossed out," I promise my eight year old as she picks and pulls. Emily laughs at me and tells me that she wants to start a collection.

A collection?

"Oooh! There's a big piece!" she says as she peels, her eyes lighting up. She's got this intense look as she goes after my dead skin, much like a scientist looking for a new strain of virus. Or a monkey grooming a friend.



I will be starting a fund for my daughter's anticipated therapy sessions. Feel free to mail me a check with your donations.

Ewwwww. Heeby jeebies! What if she peels off fresh skin? Ewwww. (I'm just kidding, I would peel off someone else's skin, too. Maybe.)

I am going to have to try this Murillo's soon. You all speak so highly of it!

You may be more stuck than you think. SWMBO goes orgasmic over peeling skin. Apparently, there are people like that - and you may be growing one.

I'm not following the Olympics at all but when I got that and realised Anna-Marie was in Beijing IN the Olympics - you bet I will do as she asks, even if I am not following the Olympics as a whole (I will keep an eye on the rowing team to root her on though!)

So... I appreciate the no-hating love you shared on my blog!! I didn't even know she was there!!! I knew she was trying to qualify but I never anything further! Woohoot! Talk about a life altering experience! I'm so happy for her!

Ewwww...sounds like something my daughter would do and if I squirmed she'd quickly put me in my place!

Daisy said...

Hmmm...you could get her started rubbing lotion onto your poor burned self. Maybe she'll become a massage therapist and practice on family!

What love shown! Emily helping with the peeling. ;)

It reminds me of peeling the skin off the bottom of my feet during my early teen years as I was growing. Remember doing that?
