In our free time, we've come up with a list of aging issues our children have provided for us-- entertainment and lots of sarcasm, so hopefully you can enjoy a laugh or two, cause we did!
**Instead of singing the newest "hit" sing we instead are humming a tune to Kylie's favorite show-- DAMN DORA!
**You can't remember what you or if you ate a meal-- breakfast, lunch or dinner-- but you can remember that you had a cup of coffee.
**You realize that your kids have nicer clothes than you do--- funny how that happens-- probably not that surprising seeing our shopping habits.
**You start sounding like you mother-- "if you don't eat your vegetables, you'll end up like this (and that is when Nana shows a pictures of someone having surgery).. I haven't gotten to that point yet.
**You start talking to yourself and have regular conversations--- its amazing what you can accomplish by doing this. (Plus, the voices don't talk back on a regular basis)
**You look in your refrigerator and you have more sippy cups and baby bottles than any other beverage bottle.
**You barely stay awake through the 10 o'clock news.
**You start watching the weather channel constantly because you cannot remember what the weather is supposed to be like for eight minutes!!! -- good thing its weather on the eights or we'd be in trouble here!
**You scroll the TV shows to look for kids shows and PRAY that it is not going to be a rerun because there is only so many times you can watch DORA "Pirate Adventure"-- I'm the pirate pig, I'm the pirate pig"
**You get into you car and its on the kids station or there is a kids CD in there-- "We are the Dinosaurs, marching, marching..." AHHHHH!!! Shoot me now!
**Your laundry is all your kids- forget washing your clothes-- and in this house, why bother when you constantly get puked on??
**You never shower alone-- there is always someone interrupting you-- "Mommy, are you happy?" "Mommy are you done yet?" "Mommy, I am hungry!" "Mommy I need more juice please!" "Mommy are you doing to wear shorts or pants?" "Mommy are you going to wear a red shirt or a blue shirt?" "Mommy, Shay and Anika are screaming again, can you fix it NOW!!!!"
**Wonder if Fisher-Price has a partnership with Duracell... they seem to have toys that run out of batteries in a flash of a light. What's with that?
**And last, do toy manufacturers only have three colors? I mean seriously, everything is yellow, blue or red? Is that all babies like?
I am sure many of you can relate-- any to add to the list?? I am sure we are missing a boatload, but in our sleepless stupor we miss quite a bit on every issue.
Until next time...... Are you sitting on the edge of your seat waiting to hear what these girls do to us next... I can't wait for the teenage years! HA!
