Once again, I’m cutting it close with the A to Z Challenge post. This one is ready with about three minutes to spare thanks to my never-ending day that started before the crack of dawn!
Diving right in — my kids go by the “what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is also mine” rule.
My food? Also their food, even if I have the same thing that they have. My radio? Obviously theirs. My Playstation? Well, you get the picture. I say “no” sometimes, but “yes” is far more prevalent since they’re a) my offspring and b) cute. (My husband, though? You better bet that “no” accompanied with other not-so-nice words happens when he tries to get a bite of my steak or swipes one of my ice-cold Cokes.)
I’m used to sharing, but there’s one thing that I thought would remain mine and mine alone, for at least a decade, and that’s feminine hygiene products. However, since both of my children are like dehydrated people in deserts who see mirages of water everywhere in cartoons, the kids see candy everywhere and have tried to make me share my Aunt Flo-inators as well.
Note to Baby Girl: this is the first red flag that you need help with your popsicle addiction.
Now Little Man won’t think the fact that he’s called me “Mommy” is the most damaging thing I’ve posted online anymore.
