I took a bit of a break from the blog recently. Did you notice?
I wanted to spend some time doing stuff with my kids (like I have a choice!), and I also wanted to try to focus on living in the present moment. That sounds hokey, but it’s something I don’t do enough these days. Also, school and other activities are keeping us pretty busy.
Additionally, I decorated the house for Christmas. Yes, I know it’s only November, but if I wait until later, it will be too late. In any case, I love the holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas), and I say there are no rules about that stuff. I can put up my tree whenever I darn well want. It doesn’t mean that I’ve forgotten about Thanksgiving. I am extremely THANKFUL that I am able to start celebrating Christmas as early and as long as I please.
Whilst living in THE NOW amongst the heathen tribe, there were a few instances where I walked into a room just in time to prevent death and dismemberment.
I have also overheard a few phrases that, although somewhat benign in their actual wording, were quite frightening when I considered their possible context.
So, for your reading pleasure, I give you:
- “Watch THIS!”
- “Is that blood?”
- “Is that chocolate? Let me taste it.”
- “Stop! I think I hear Mom coming!”
- “Where do we keep the fire extinguisher?”
- “Maybe we can fix it before she comes back…”
- “Don’t TOUCH IT.”
- “Do we have a chainsaw?”
- “Red RUM! Red RUM!”
- “Mom said not to do that!”
- “Ew. You ATE THAT?”
- “Gross. Is there poop in that?”
- “There’s no way you’ll make it all the way over there from the couch.”
- “You better go change your pants.”
- “I don’t think that’s playdoh.”
If you have kids, have you ever heard them say something that made your ears perk up?
