Good morning, good morning! Some of you might be wondering what the frick has happened to me. Most of you won’t have noticed I was absent, which is fine too.
I couldn’t really tell you whether I’ve been crazy busy w/ little-to-no time to think of anything to write -or- if I’ve had so LITTLE going on that I have nothing, not even a good grocery store story to share -or- if I’ve been in Barbados with my husband celebrating a belated 6 year anniversary trip.
Well, I guess I can tell you it wasn’t the last one. Though we did just celebrate 6 blissful years together. Who knows when those years will be, probably not for another decade or so, but we went ahead & celebrated them anywho. -kidding…
I think my life at the moment may be a little of both. Too crazy at times to think about setting down & sharing… & then when the crazy dies down, it’s so damn boring that my mind can not think of anything I would possibly deem worthy of any you reading.
Yesterday, I did have an experience that I will share. Don’t get too excited here.
I heard the girl holler to me from the bathroom.
*Never a good sign, since she is now almost fully in charge of her own wiping… especially if when she begins to yell you can’t find her brother.
“Ahhh, he’s trying to put som-ting in the toilet!”
Here we go again.
Upon entry to the bathroom I am faced with my two kids. 1 screaming & the other with a smug look on his face, almost a smile.
I look into the toilet & see a fuzzy ball.
*Fuzzy balls at our house are used as a form of bribery, currency, an incentive for good behavior which can be later traded in for treats & toys. This should be no surprise that neither child has accumulated enough to cash in.
Since the ball is little & I have zero plans to stick my hand in her pee for anything less than a cell phone, I flush.
Shu Shu screams holding her hand out, “NooOOooOOOoo!!”
As the yellow & gold ball swirls around the toilet for the last time before being sucked down the drain, the boy breaks his silence.
…and with 1 snap of his tongue – 1 finger gun – 1 air kick & 1 wink he shouts, “BOO-YA!”
The irony of him flushing his “good behavior reward” has not be lost here. I would laid the smack down here if he were not just so damn cute.
