‘Spiky’ things are not always bad or painful. They can be loving and affectionate, in a way.

I was sitting cross-cross applesauce on Thursday during my usual volunteer time when my son came to sit next to me on the floor for story-time. He snuggled right up against me and gave me a hug.

The librarian began reading the book, while my son decided to causally place his hand on my leg. He moved his fingers a bit and belted out ‘Mommy has spiky legs’. I sat up straighter a bit horrified when I realized he was referring to the stubble on my leg (I was wearing capris).

He repeated it twice while I shushed him but to no avail: The librarian heard him, looked at me and we began laughing.

I headed home giggling and craving something fast, easy and a bit sweet to eat to comfort my embarrassment.

That is what I get after four days of chilly rainy weather…..One warm day and the spiky truth is revealed.

This reminds me of a picture my nephew drew of my sister. In the picture she had multiple appendages coming out of her legs, and when she asked him about it, he simply said: “Those are your spikeys!” Aren’t kids great ;).

yes, we can always count on our children to blurt out our embarrassing habits / secrets at usually the most inappropriate times… ah kids! The snack looks great though – I’m really loving blueberries this year.

We will need to plant our own bushes because we go through pints a day.
