The world is a scary place all by itself. Make your home a safe place for your children. You be there refuge.
Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to set the scene if you will…
Monday morning I traveled to the grocery store in order to get food in my house in preparing for Hurricane Irma. I carefully selected items for dinners and even a snack for my munchkins (lemonade icees). And for myself, after careful weighing of multiple options, I choose this wonderfulness below:
Doesn’t the name alone ooze marvelousness?
Audience Imagine letting that ice cream sit in your freezer for a day. And preparing your mouth after a long, draining day at the office for this piece of heavenly goodness only to find this when you open the container:
Do you understand the specturm of emotions I experienced all within .5 seconds? DO YOU? Perplexed, Anger, Hurt, Sadness, grabbling with the thoughts of beating my kids (I didn’t, but I did think about it) then the Empty VOID set in.
How did my husband allow these children to eat my beautiful ice cream that I was planning on consummating my love with tonight? Why would these two little monsters deprive me of the peace of heaven I had prepared my taste buds for? WHHHHYYY?
I am their mother I was pregnant with them for 38 weeks and 5 days. I threw up every single day (and I mean EVERY SINGLE DAY) in my pregnancy. I had pups and suffered a heart arrhythmia. How dare they take this away from me?
Tell me WHERE IS THE Justice? WHERE IS THE Justice?
When you cuddle with your children and fall asleep in your bed sometimes you wake up in a puddle or two… at 1am 🤦🏽♀️😢. I knew I should have gotten up to make them pee. Luckily it was only one puddle! Everybody’s potty training is different, for us nighttime is still a bit of a struggle. Almost there though🙏🏽
Back in May, I took my sons to their annual dentist appointment. Every thing went relatively well with the exception of getting news that Micah had four cavities😩😢. My first overwhelming emotion was "I'm a horrible mother. How could I allow this to happen?" My next thoughts were to get all the information from the doctors along with pricing for the two procedure options.
First, I asked , was it absolutely necessary to subject my son to this procedure if they are just adolescent teeth and would be falling out at some point? The doctor then proceeded to somewhat berate me as if I didn't have a college degree. At any rate she explained that the infected teeth were ones that would not start falling out until about 8 years old. And that a cavitiy is similar to that of a rash and if left untreated would affect his adult teeth.
I held off on choosing between the Oral and IV sedative because the doctor proceeded to tell me that I could not be in the room with my four year old for either procedure. When I tell you all watching them put my son under anesthesia was the most heart-wrenching, painful thing I've ever seen in my life. I wanted to die. He cried and all I could do was sing rock a bye baby and kiss him and tell him it would be ok before his body went limp. I damn near lost it, I was sobbing uncontrollably, I'm almost 85% sure snot was happening.
The procedure was rather quick, I moved my car to the back entrance and then they took me to a room and brought me my medically induced sleeping child. Waking him up was probably longer than the actually procedure, it took about 30 minutes for him to come to. Even after he was groggy for a couple of hours. Nevertheless, he got to eat ice cream at 10 o clock in the morning (Vanilla). The doctor said it was ok, taking better precautions.
There are three laundry baskets of clean clothes that need folding. Two and a half Bathrooms and a kitchen that need sweeping and moping and every room needs to be vacuumed. But you know what I have absolutely no energy or emergent will to execute any of these chores. None whatsoever.
All Eyez on Me 👁 or Cars 3🏎
Hmmmm decisions… the gag is I really want to see Cars also the cinematography on the first movie was pretty amazing 😉!
Judge if you must. 💁🏽
Oh and I still haven’t seen Wonder Woman😢.
So as you all know Father’s Day is rapidly approaching and I’m spent on ideas 💡. So I say to myself, self ask these children what they would like to get for their father. Here is the conversation:
Mason: A present 🎁!
Me: Yes…but what type of present?
Micah: Ummm…a tiger 🐯!!!
Me: 😳 uh ok…hunny I don’t think we can afford a tiger. What else?
Mason: some boots…tiger boots!
Lawd! He’s getting that Star Wars card and that’s it. 😕
