Allergic to water

Today, Laura got a text message from the babysitter "Is Ben allergic to water?"

The babysitter is new. Laura was a bit worried, but replied no. When she got home, the sitter explained the context of her question. She was about to give Benjamin some water, and Abigail warned that he was allergic to water. The sitter said she didn't think that was the case, but Abigail retorted, "OK, do what you want, but he's allergic to water."

HA! So convincing -- a little worrisome too.


  1. Hi, it's Raysha Palmer. I was just blog browsing and somehow ran into your page. It's been a long time since the days in the Sentinel Peak Ward. You have a beautiful family and I just had to let you know that I seriously considered, for one minute, going to a "Vampire Prom" at a book store in Tucson for the upcoming release of Breaking Dawn. I too, am a fan!

  2. Hmm. That would be awful on top of everything else Ben has experienced in his short life!

  3. I actually knew someone who was allergic to water--but only on the outside of her skin--she could drink:). I'm impressed with her ability to sound convincing:).

  4. Ok, that was the funniest thing I have heard in a long time. I can just see Abigail--"ok do what you want to do"--I am glad that all the tests came back normal fo Ben.
