Did That Really Just Happen?

Don't worry. Part two is headed your way on Monday. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, check out Part One.

Lest anyone think I live a pristine life, filled with one blissful moment upon another *snort* I present to you, Did That Really Just Happen? All from this week.
Enjoy the laughs at my expense.

Did That Really Just Happen?:
1. I left produce in my cooler bags for three days and wondered what "that smell" was.
2. I repeatedly walked by a giant black baby doll for half an hour wondering what had so wholly captivated Sophia.*
3. I guffawed (heartily) when the dental assistant apologetically told me they had accidentally popped out one of Naomi's teeth while flossing.**
4. Speaking of "that smell", I realized I needed to launder my daughter's shirt for AWANA. I tossed it in the washing machine along with the clean-up-the-bathroom-accident towels that had been in there for a day. No shame, people. Absolutely no shame.
5. At my midwife's appointment (sorry fellas) while procuring my urine sample, I may or may not have peed on my hand for a full five seconds before realizing it.
That, my friends, is sightly disturbing.***

You are welcome.

Keepin' It Real,

*Which begs the question, "What was Sophia doing for half an hour that required setting up a decoy to distract Mama?"
**Before you report me to CPS, it was already a little bit loose. And anyway, have you seen how fast they floss teeth?!?
***Perhaps no more disturbing than actually sharing it on the World Wide Web...


  1. You're too funny, Cynthia! I love the way you keep it real.

  2. Love these. Here's my addition. Since I couldn't produce any genuine contrition from my son about his attitude, I had him sit next to me while I cut up 45 onions. And his watery eyes made me feel just a little bit better. ;)

  3. ***ROFLOL***
    Ahem. No, I did not just laugh... I went waaaaayyyy past that ;-) Thanks!
