Have You Ever . . .?

Have you ever . . .

-licked the spoon without even thinking about it after you have adminstered medicine to your child ?

-drank a cup of coffee after brushing your teeth and gagged at the combo of toothpaste, coffee, and vanilla creamer?

-wished there was an instant replay after something gets broken and "no one" did it?



Well how about, have you ever . . .

-spent 10 minutes looking for your car keys only to find them still in the car's ignition?

-lost the TV remote only to find it in the refrigerator?

-misplaced the cup of coffee you were drinking, made yourself another cup of coffee, and then found your 1st coffee cup in the bathroom linen closet?



Oh well.

What about have you ever . . .

-licked your thumb, smeared it on your dirty child's face, and then triumphantly declared the child to be "clean"?

-sniffed a suspicious piece of laundry in order to determine if it is "clean"?

-sniffed a child's diapered butt to determine if his diaper is "clean"?


Still no?!

Well then! Have you ever. . .

-shaved one of your armpits (or legs) twice leaving one armpit freshly shaven and one that resembles an unruly jungle of hair?

-gotten caught plucking your eyebrows in the car's vanity mirror while waiting to pick up your kiddies at school?

-farted in a public place and blamed one of your kiddies?


You've never done any of these things?!?





It must be just me.

Mama's Losin' It


  1. Oh, I feel you on the toothbrushing and coffee. Then again, OJ and toothpaste is pretty nasty too. Actually, now that I think about it, I recognize most of those things as daily occurences.

  2. Stopping by from Mama Kat's. You are not alone. I've done many of these things! :)

  3. Yeah ... it is just you! HAHA!
    Actually, my thing with the toothpaste is drinking orange juice after brushing your teeth ... horrible horrible.

    Thanks for the visit earlier!

  4. Oh yeah, I've done lots of those or at least some variation of them.

  5. I'm just going to say yes...don't ask for details!

  6. i'm guilty of several. all of the sniff/smell test ones, "cleaning" my kids faces, and disturbingly finding their cherry medicine rather tasty.

  7. Oh, I've done the diaper butt sniffing thing for sure!

    Saying hi from Mama Kat's....

  8. It's definitely not just you!! Except maybe the armpit might be alone with that. ;)

  9. Ha, ha, ha. I searched my car, the yard and my friend's entire house looking for my keys. They were on top of the car the entire time. I was so frustrated.

    Happy Potluck Friday.


  10. Visiting from SITs and Mama Kat's.

    I've done most of those things since having my daughter. Especially the clothes and diaper sniffing. In fact, I'm 98% positive my daughter's diaper is in fact NOT clean right now, but I'm going off of the 2% that my nose hasn't been working properly lately. Or I tell myself I wanna wait until she "gets it all out" so as I don't have to change another diaper immediately after. I can get to her after the dishes.

  11. Haha, thanks for the laughs! Oh, and the gross face I made at the medicine spoon lick. Aack to that!

  12. I have totally done all those things.

    Stopped over from SITS and I am totally loving your blog. I will be back. :)

  13. Stopping by from SITS and I have to say, you ask some very compelling questions that hit right to the gut! I'm following you now and I would love to have you visit my blog.
    Today is Friday and on Fridays I run a series that offers a moment of presence and contemplation, for busy moms this is like a mini vacation all to yourself in a moment.
    This week I am also offering a beginning visualization exercise.

  14. Yup! I have done some of those! Have a great weekend!

    Mama Hen

  15. Yes, to all of the above, especially shaving under my arm twice and forgetting to shave the other.


I love, love, love to read your comments!
