Apples to Apples
You know how sometimes you'll be mindlessly eating an apple? And you're taking crunchy bites while you watch tv, or read, or clean the kitchen? And after a while you'll realize that you've been chewing the same chewy bite for a while, and you figure out that you forgot to take the little sticker off and you've been grinding it around in your teeth for like half an hour?
Yeah, that's pretty fun.
Or how about when it's 7 AM, and your kids are sleeping, and the house is quiet, and you're trying to figure out what to blog about today, and all of a sudden you hear your 4 year old screaming at the top of her lungs. Except she's not crying. She's yelling, "IF YOU HAVE A FROWNY FACE, DO NOT LET IT STAY! QUICKLY TURN IT UPSIDE AND SMILE THAT FROWN AWAY!!" And she's got the scratchy I just woke up voice going on, and you know she's just laying in bed, singing to her stuffed animals. Very loudly.
And it makes you smile from the inside.
Or how about when your sister gives you her facebook password so you can check out the profile of the new boy she's hanging out with? And you're really tempted to change her status to something like "I am a man," and send scandalous emails to all her ex boyfriends... But you figure that will result in you losing the Sister Password Privileges. Boo. Being mature can be so boring.
Or how about when you realize that all your friends who were pregnant at the same time as you when you had Baby #2 are all pregnant again? And a lot of them have actually already had another baby? And it makes you feel sort of sad that you're not even close to having another baby, and you wonder if you'll ever have that experience again?
And remember when blogging about that made you kind of sad? And made you feel like you were done blogging for the day? Word.
