You Never See It Coming

As a parent, I thought it was just me. But I read other blogs, talk to other parents and realize… it is not.

We find ourselves saying the absolutely most utterly ridiculous things. Things so absurd, that after we say them, chill out and reflect, we think to ourselves, ‘Did I really just say that?’

Sometimes that period of time from saying to realizing what has been said is minutes… perhaps an hour. Othertimes it is damn near instantaneous… as the sentence is finished, at the end of the blurt, ‘BAMMO!’ the thought immediately enters the brain, no pause, ‘Holy crap, did I just say that?’

I’ve posted these type things here before. The two funniest I have read lately have been over at Grau’s today and over at VW’s the other day. Good grief.

And yesterday I heard my husband shout from the kitchen, out to the boys, “It is time to get this dirt out of my refrigerator! It has been in here for SEVEN WEEKS! Get in here and remove this dirt!”

It would appear that the simulated winter for the boys’ carnivorous plants is over. Let us see if they actually grow now… as they sit on the back porch in the tropics.

Owning a dog isn't much different, there are things I never thought I would say before getting the puppers, like:

stop humping your sister

Don't eat your poop

Don't eat worms

Maggie, stop licking Lances wee wee

What I like the best is when you say something in public and you have other people look at you strange.

I enjoyed the comments of the above bloggers. I cried when I wrote Taken for granted, too. Thanks.
