I’ve seriously got to watch my mumblings.
I’m talking about those under the breath comments a mother makes as her children talk smack, or spill their milk for the third time that day, or when her five-year-old decides to talk like a baby ALL DAY LONG.
In the South, if you listen closely, you’ll hear mother mumblings like this:
for cryin’ out loud, for Heaven’s sake, for Pete’s sake, and my favorite, have mercy
Don’t get me wrong, a mother’s mumblings are a good thing. After all, frustrations must escape somehow, and mumblings are way better than a yell.
But like I mentioned, I need to watch my mumblings, because the children are tuning in.
Here’s the scenario.
Yesterday, we suffered a series of potty-training setbacks.
While on my hands and knees wiping up pee, I told Blondie to take off her wet clothes, and in her struggle to remove her pee-soaked panties, she flung them right in my face.
I was too stunned to speak, so she spoke for me.
“Mommy, was that for heaven sake?”
I laughed. But not out loud, because I had pee on my lips.
You love that story, don’t you?
Moving along, now...
BooMama's post today inspired me to share something salty.
When I crave salt, there's nothing that hits the spot more than these chips. Go here to see why blue corn is slightly better for you than yellow corn. It's also important to mention that taking this bag with you to the sofa will prove detrimental to your diet. You WILL eat the whole bag, so please please please grab a bowl and a handful of chips, then put the bag AWAY!!
You'll thank me later when you're trying on bathing suits.
