- Leaving a message for the pedi: "Let me know as soon as the vaccines are in so I can set up an appt to go and get them shot".
- When I get the kids down for a nap and I proudly explain "I killed my kids!"
- Or when I was doing Harmon's IEP for the schools and I was trying to explain that Harmon is very very smart "in fact he is a diabolical mastermind". That is now in his IEP! (But Harm's teacher does agree he is one of her smartest students ever).
- My favorite that I am sure will one day bite me in the rear is when the Harmon is having a sensory meltdown in a store and people start staring. I smile and say, "we beat him". (I hate the gawkers... it isn't like you never saw a kid cry in the cereal aisle before!)
I get this from my Mom. She is delightfully dry witted women, but I'm slowly learning that not everyone has the same sense of humor I do! Nevertheless parenting twins and toddler, I think to keep sane some humor will always be a necessary component!
On a side note: moms should not wear white pants! Today was a busy day and so I wanted to look nice. Of course by the time I got out the door I realized I had a strawberry hand print on my hip, chocolate cheerios stains on my knee, and had somehow managed to sit on yogurt. Needless to say I had to detour back to the house for a quick change all while wondering how I didn't notice.
