I swore off french fries after seeing the movie "SuperSize Me". It was a long, long, LONG time before I could even walk into a fast food restaurant after that. I was traumatized.
People always told me that you'd get more sleep when your kids got older. Now I have teens, and all I have to say is... LIARS!!!
When the kids were little, they loved me to sing in the car. One of their favorites was the “Where is Thumbkin?” song. This created a problem when it came for “Tall Man’s” turn. I’d try to hide my hand into the steering wheel where other drivers couldn’t see it.
One of my fix-it tickets sent to me today had this in the notes: “paper tray will not go into the printer. like a baby which won't open his mouth for peas.” Who says geeks don’t have a sense of humor?
Becoming a mother is a life-altering experience. I never knew the depth of love I could have for another human being until I held my sweet daughter and looked into her eyes for the first time. The moment takes your breath away.
It’s a good thing teens are so darn cute when they’re little babies. Otherwise, I don’t think they’d live past age 15 or so.
