why my children are going to give me a heart attack ...

Yesterday morning, when I was trying to go to the bathroom ALONE, Dizzle and Doodle stormed in and declared that they needed to brush their teeth because the dentist told them to. Funny? We went to the dentist in May and you are just getting the memo now?

I looked at them and said, "Can't you see that I am going to the bathroom? Fine. Whatever. Go brush your teeth. Just get out of here." When I finished, I heard the girls in their bathroom down the hall. I told them to brush and then come downstairs as soon as they were done. And then I left. I went downstairs, sat down and tried to finish my coffee.

About two minutes later, I hear ear-piercing screams. Dizzle is yelling, "MOM! COME HERE! HURRY! IT'S AN EMERGENCY!" All I can think is someone is dead. They have found a razor and are bleeding to death or they drank all the toilet cleaner. I jump up and sprint up the stairs. When I get there both girls are crying and screaming. I look at Dizzle. And yell (so they can hear me over their screams), "What's wrong?"

"Doodle can't turn off the sink! She might waste water!"

Wait? What? Here I am thinking you are on the verge of death and you are just afraid that you're not being Eco-friendly? Seriously?

Yes, this is my life. Be jealous. Very jealous.

First of all, I think Mrs. Mer has rubbed off on them in a major way!!

Second, I LOVE D&D!! Dizzle has ALWAYS cracked me up from the 1st day I met her at SS.

I don't mean to laugh, but that is adorable. Funny how kids blow things out of proportion, yet listen to you about what matters (being eco-friendly)

"quick! mama's trying to pee. Lets bombard her with every inane need/want/desire we can think of!"

Char said...

That was so funny. I was drinking my tea and almost choked. One of my boys did a similar thing (many years ago). We'd just dropped his brother off at kindy and I'd put him in the car and forgotten to do up his belt. When I started to drive off he had a major melt-down because he wasn't safe.
