“there are no alligators here”

In response to the warning, “You’ll need to be good at the restaurant, or we’ll have to leave,” Ben said, with perfect intonation, “I’m good right now…”

In an effort to discourage him from picking his nose, I told him that picking boogs brings out alligators. (I know, bad mommy. Don’t worry, vindication is coming.) A few days later, we pulled up to daycare, and, of course, that right index is making a play for it. I asked “Don’t you remember what mommy told you about that?” Ben looked at me, stuck his finger in firmly and said, “There are no alligators here.”
