As I was getting Fin out of the bathtub tonight I noticed a small bump on her little butt cheek. I dabbed a bit of medicine on it and she yelped.
"Mom, what are you doing?!"
"I'm putting a little medicine on this bump. It's just a little pimple, no big deal. The medicine will make it go away soon."
"Mom, no!! Don't touch it!! That is my special plimple! It gives me super powers!"
Okay, I fully realize that I am first time mom who is still learning the ropes of parenting. I understand my child is only four years old and I have many experiences ahead of me that will render me speechless. But seriously, I had no words. I don't believe there is an educated parental response to this.
My child claims the 'plimple' on her ass gives her super powers. I'd say she totally wins this round.
