I Think an Intervention is in Order

Two signs that Mr. Daddy and I need some time away from the kids:

1. Yesterday I told a coworker that I needed to go tee tee.

I heard it come out of my mouth and as I was hearing it I couldn't believe that I said that out loud, but I was powerless to stop it.

"I live with a two year old! I'm sorry!" I explained, mortified. Fortunately, she got a good laugh out of it.

2. I've been hounding Mr. Daddy for days to bring boxes home from work. I sent him two emails yesterday reminding him. Did he bring boxes home yesterday? No, he did not.

We had chili for supper tonight and we usually have corn muffins with it. Mr. Daddy gets home before I do and he called while I was picking up Bubba. I returned his call when I got back in the car.

"Did you need something?"

"Yes, I was going to ask you if you wanted me to make muffins for dinner. But then I realized if you give a mommy a muffin, she's going to want some boxes to go with it. So I went back to work and got some boxes.

I got a great haircut today. I would post some pictures, but I'm coloring it as we speak. Maybe tomorrow. Now I'm just trying to figure out how to lose 10 lbs by Friday.

Oh man. Mr. Farklepants suffers from the same condition. As for the 10 pounds...I wonder if you digest the hair dye if the subsequent trip to the ER and stomach pumping would do the trick? Too risky?

Heh. You guys need a fifth of something strong and a weekend to pretend you're just a couple.

Come to think of it - so do I.

You could lose WAY more than ten pounds by Friday. Just drop the kids off at the police station or some other suitable location. Weight gone!

If I told you how many times it takes my husband to remember to bring home a box when I ask, you would appreciate Mr. Daddy's return trip. Let's just say I have to think MONTHS ahead.

I think your hubby's "if you give mom a muffin" line is genius! Too funny. Hope you get the break you need. (Tee tee...that's fuuny too.)

"go tee tee" is fabulous! I used to LOATHE the word "potty" especially when uttered by an adult but now I find myself using that word, not only with my 3 yr old, but in reference to myself! Ugh! I can't wait until I get to use big words again like "lavatory". :)

You all need a dose of my husband. His mission in life is to see if he can fill the basement clear to the 10' ceiling with boxes brought home from work before I can find friends to give them to.

I lose pounds by wearing heels. 135 pounds looks very different when you're 5 foot 6 than when you're 5 foot 3!

Lulu said...

I can't wait to see the haircut!!

Oh, and stop by your local liquor store. Plenty of boxes there. Don't ask me how I know...

Lauren said...

Thank goodness it's almost Friday right???

So we also had chili for dinner last night. Crazy.

I need a haircut, where did you get this great haircut anyway?

At least tee tee is less crass than "I have to pee" which is what I typically say. :)
