This must be from one of his dad's genes

This is what Josh's face looked like when he woke up this morning. Actually, the rash didn't cover quite this much surface area, but this was the rash. It wasn't all that big, and I had no clue what it was, but being the kindly, concerned mommy-type that I am, I ignored it and sent him to school. This is the conversation we had when I picked him up this afternoon:

Me: How's your rash feel?
Josh: It itches a lot. Mrs. F says it looks like poison ivy.
Me: Hmm. When would you have gotten poison ivy?
Josh: Well, yesterday at Gaga's house, I took a leaf and rubbed it against my cheek like this.
Me: [Actually, this is where I say nothing for a minute because I'm pretty much speechless.]
Me: What?!

Come to find out later that my dad had shown Josh and Lesey that a particular 3-leafed plant was poison ivy, but Josh wasn't sure if that was the one or not. I guess that was one way to find out.

Kids do the most amazing things! Bless your heart, at least you got it out of him before you visited a dermatologist!
