My Day In Bullets Points (And It’s Not Over Yet)

The highlights:

    • Finding clean underwear for E to wear.
    • E peeing in the front yard at lunchtime.
    • N giggling hysterically ever time I say: POOPY
    • Changing back into sweatpants.
    • Not showering today.
    • My tweet coming true (so far).

The low lights:

  • My son’s version of the morning STARTED AT 5 AM.
  • And then my daughter got up.
  • And then she wouldn’t nap when I wanted her to.
  • And then five people hurt my feelings so I decided to CRY.
  • Which reminded me why I HATE PEOPLE.  And I explained this to a friend but made sure that she knew that she was not on the list.  Just other people.
  • So we arrive at music class late and after ten minutes, I realize that my FLY IS DOWN.
  • After zipping it up, I realize that is why my jeans FIT SO WELL this morning.
  • E outsmarted me on the way home with this conversation: E: I want to go to a restaurant! Me: No. We are going to E’s house and we can PRETEND it’s a restaurant.  E: Lets go to a restaurant and pretend it’s E’s house!
  • N fell asleep on the way home after a ridiculously short morning nap throwing off our ENTIRE AFTERNOON.
  • N vomiting immediately after giggling at POOPY for 35 seconds
  • E’s version of quiet time is hurtling himself off his dresser and shaking the entire house including his sister’s room.
  • N crying hysterically since she woke up.  Pausing only for raisins.

Is my husband home yet?

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. Reasons why I love Alex:
    1. “# So we arrive at music class late and after ten minutes, I realize that my FLY IS DOWN.
    # After zipping it up, I realize that is why my jeans FIT SO WELL this morning.”
    2. She can say she hates people and I totally get it! (cuz I don't like people either)
    3. She can be a total grump yet cause me to laugh out loud at my computer at the same time.
    4. She's honest enough to say she didn't shower today causing me to take pride in my own non-showered filth.
    5. She is REAL. No matter how brilliant, well read, spectacular wife and mom she is…she is REAL.

  2. You are so sweet and stinky (not showering and all)! And thank goodness that we at least like each other. Because we are busy moms who don't have time to add more person to our lists. (Seriously, it's so nice to have a people-hater too. And an EXTREMEMLY NICE one at that. Not an easy combo.)
