We actually returned on Monday, but I’m so far behind in mommy duties I haven’t found the time to blog. When I think of what I feel like writing today, so many things come to mind but more than anything, I’m reflecting on all the talk I do. It seems that my mind has a mouth of it’s own that rambles on and on as I move through my day. Sometimes my mind mouth is quieter, and other times I can barely hear myself think because it is so loud. Today, I have had a hard time staying focused on what’s going on around me because it just won’t shut up. Do you want to hear my mind mouth? You poor Pink Moss followers that enjoy my random thoughts for whatever reason.
Here we go:
Why do the the computer cords get all tangled up with each other, even though I don’t ever see anyone under the computer messing with them?
Does Patrick on “Sponge Bob” really have a laser in his but like Halle says?
What day is it?
If I don’t exercise when I am sick, does that count as lazy?
How can I help my daughters have a good self esteem?
What is my schedule for today?
Who’s job was this?
I’m sick, but it doesn’t matter because I’m mom.
I wish my kids knew how great they are.
I wish my kids would stop fighting.
Why are my kids so annoying…” mom mom mom mom mom mom mom mom ”
Why don’t theses pants fit? It couldn’t be the ice cream and french fries.
what what what what…”I said WHAT”
I wonder what I’ll be when I grow up.
Maybe I should learn Spanish today, or the piano, or write a book.
Then there is my face mouth that talks to the kids, and I hear the same things over and over again:
“Are you deaf or something? Do you need hearing aids?”
“Did you brush your teeth? Today?”
“Did you comb your hair? It doesn’t hurt so much if you do it once a week.”
“Do you think your socks are going to pick themselves up?”
“Don’t eat that, you’ll get worms! I HATE worms.”
“Don’t pick that scab! I knew a girl once that used to pick her scabs and eat them and it sicks me OUT!”
“Don’t talk with your mouth full!”
“Can I PALEEAASSE go to the bathroom without you banging on the door?”
“Go play outside! It’s a beautiful day!”
“How do you know you don’t like it if you haven’t tasted it? And no, I’m not hiding fish in it.”
“I brought you into this world, and I can take you right back out”
“I didn’t ask who put it there, I said “Pick it up!”
“Someday you’ll get your chance to be a better mother than I am. Good luck, I hope you are.”
“If you’re too sick to go to school, you’re too sick to play outside. That’s the rule.”
“It’s not that I don’t trust you, it’s that I don’t trust everyone else or the Internet.”
“Life isn’t fair.Get used to it.”
“So it’s raining? You’re not sugar — you won’t melt.”
“What did I say the FIRST time?”
“What part of NO don’t you understand? (afterward singing the song “They might be giants” No means no.)
“When I was your age, I had to walk ten miles through the snow, uphill, to get to the bus stop.”
“You kids are trying to drive me crazy!”
“You can’t judge a book by its cover. It would be boring if we were all the same.”
“You can go out to play…after you pick up your room.”
“Running away? Is that a threat or a promise? Let me help you pack.”
“Is your homework finished?”
“If you’re too full to finish your dinner, you’re too full for dessert.”
“If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.”
“Did you flush and wash your hands?”
“Bored! How can you be bored? I was never bored at your age.”
And then Jon comes home and we have our business rundown for the day, and my business mouth says:
“Did you finish your budget?”
“How did the meetings go?”
“What are our goals for 2012?”
“Thanks for working so hard to support our family and so many others.”
“Did you hire that new guy?”
“Did the janitor really steal it, or were we just accused because “the janitor always does it?”
“Everything will work out OK!”
“One day at a time.”
“Go get em’ Tiger!”
So you see.
I blog about a lot of things, but in the mean time I am talking through a lot of different mouths. I guess you could say this is my blog mouth. The mouth that lets me blab about whatever I feel like that day.
Random, indeed. But I guess that’s what you get on my blog. Different snap shots of my head mouth, face mouth, business mouth, and blog mouth.
Now that’s a lot of talking!
