She Said: “If My Head Weren’t Attached… I Think I’d Lose It”

December 28, 2009 by Kat  

(I HAD TO INCLUDE THIS PIC, because I will bet this has happened to me
about 8 times, without me even knowing!)

Okay, so admittedly, I get ridiculously excited when hubby initiates the post, and I get to respond. My blood roars through my veins; it feels almost as good as it did when my parents would actually punish my annoying brothers for something they legitimately did (anyone else out there get in trouble EVEN WHEN THEY DIDN’T DO A DAMN THING??). How and why do brothers know exactly how to piss you off in such a way that you were seeping with rage… that as a child  you had to either shriek bloody murder, scream, or whine your tush off until mom or dad finally gave you the attention you craved??

And, even if your brother was the one to flush your head down the toilet (after they pooped), or stuffed cat hair down your throat until you begged “Uncle”… did YOU also get in trouble because you were the one who screamed, cried, or whined?

Wowsers, well glad I got that off my chest anyway.  I still smile when I remember the RARE times brother(s) actually got caught for their debauchery.

Anyway, hubby decently described the last few days at home; how we actually remember to go potty, ourselves, without an alarm to alert us, still amazes me. He did get a few items wrong, however:

- Seriously, if your Amex was missing for 2 weeks, and no one had charged on it – what’s the big deal?  (Okay, so yes, it was the 3rd time this year… thankfully, it’s not a debit card… c’mon! It’s AMEX for goodness sakes) — wouldn’t you pretty much bet it’s in the pocket of your favorite jeans that you can’t find at the bottom of the wash pile?

- I could care less about the damn remote. This is exclusively the man’s issue.

- Yes, I wanted to rip adorable son’s head off when he (inevitably, whined of course, while he) asked over and over for us to come and help him find the missing pieces.  If I calculated how much I could have accomplished during the 18 thousand ‘breaks’ in my workload I had to take to help find (with flashlight, on shag rug) those pieces, it would take too much time.

- Actually, I didn’t have spiked egg nog. We all enjoyed (well, not the kids, thankfully) screwdrivers, and bloody’s. And, please note, it was NOT I who forgot my glasses (this moment of triumph oddly resembles aforementioned moments, above, when brothers would finally get accused for their wrong doings…). Love the glory.

(Also glad friends’ house is in our neighborhood… what I’d like to retrace is how I wound up at a local bar [don't worry, we called a designated driver to/from bar to drop off/pick up] on a Sunday afternoon. You got me. Love the hubby… what started as a ‘drop by for brunch’ at a friends’ home that morning, turned into something a bit different. I owe yah one.

    So accurately describes the parenting years…lol. I just found a lost library book under my desk at work…that I had conveniently stuck in the bag I got at the bookstore 2 1/2 weeks ago so it wouldn’t get wet as I returned on the bus in the rain without an umbrella. I KNEW where it was, at the time. I just sort of forgot and the bookbag I bought that was in the bag was covering the book…etc, etc.

    Don’t let Kat kid you………she ALWAYS got the most attention from her parents. I think I will give her an Uncle Kevy next time I see her for lying!

    hahaha this is great and I feel the same way! I swear if my head wasn’t attached I’d loose it! lol I love how your blog is coming from Male and Female! I always say I want to write a post about how my husband and I do things so different when it comes to little but simple things with our daughter. So funny!
