I'm Gonna Eat Your Nose.....

Please tell me you've played this game.  It's fun and kids get a kick out of it, right? 

My kids have taken it to a whole new level.  A new irritating level.  Here's how we roll in our house.
Belle or Molly will start by "eating" the other's nose (or eye, or knee or whatever).  Then that child will begin to cry hysterically and scream and holler that they need their nose back.  At which point the one who has "eaten" the nose will refuse to give back said nose.  If it is Isabelle who has Molly's nose, she will go one step further and say that the nose is stuck in her teeth and she can't give it back.  This makes Molly crazy.

On and on it goes with screaming and crying and carrying on until I have to intervene and tell them to, "Give your sister her nose back."  It is a major ordeal.  I honestly can't believe I have to raise my voice at my kids over an imaginary game.

Last week Molly "ate" Isabelle's knees.  Isabelle was convinced she could not walk until Molly gave them back.  Molly, of course, would not give them back.  Until I told her she would have to go to her room if she didn't.  And yes, I have explained to them that it is an imaginary game, that they do in fact, still have their nose.  They don't care.  It is crazy.

In all my wildest dreams I never though that this would be what I would be dealing with as a parent.  Disciplining my kids for an fake game.  It is great!

Do your kiddos do anything weird like mine?  Are Belle and Molly just crazy?


  1. this is hilarious!! I can't wait for these kind of games!! I can only imagine...

  2. Oh my goodness - this is so funny!! My girls don't do this right now, but they manage to drive each other crazy in many other ways :)

  3. maybe try to get them to eat each others lips so they can not talk. it could help or at least not hurt.
