I was sleeping, I just didn't close my eyes

The offspring is approaching that time. Yaaknow. The one where she refuses to take that beloved nap so Mommy can watch Y&R and eat chocolate and think about nothing. It wouldn't be so terrible if, at 2pm, she wasn't throwing tantrums making it feel like the longest day in history (everyday).

But there's good news.

Wait...I think.

Okay, so I forgot my point. I'm going to do something unheard of right this moment. I'm going to say random words and see what the hubs has to say because as I type, my carp tun is locking my fingers. Even Candy needs a little help sometimes. And...go.

Pretzel: rod
Forest: tree
Milkshake: yum
Labrynth: shitty movie
Cartoon: fun
Violet: roygbv
Pink Floyd: trippy
February: cold

Thanks, dear. Always so insightful. Use this as your number one writing exercise because it's so scientific. Riiiggghhhttt. Or, just click "Next Blog," where, even if a blank screen, you will learn more than here, today.

Seriously, Candyland apologies for the short notice exit. Off to find my brace. Meh.

 Tell me friends, what's the FIRST word that comes to mind when you read the words above. Don't think. Just type.
Candyland. OUT.

How can anyone not like King Jareth?

You remind me if the babe. What babe?
The babe with the power. What power?
The power of voodoo. Who do?
You do. Do what?
Remind me of the babe...

I should probably stop singing to everyone.

I can't now! Once I see someone else's answers it's all I can think about. I'm also highly susceptible to getting a song stuck in my head if someone sings only a couple bars to me.

Sorry about the hands. :o( I can't eevn think of anything silly to say, because it's no longer a silly pain in the butt, but a real pain in the ass, er... hand. (Okay, I guess I could come up with something after all)

My oldest child napped til he was in kindergarten. My second child stopped napping when she was two! So I instituted a "quiet time" where she had to be in her room and she could look at books, play but had to stay in there for an hour and a half! Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't with her;she's a pistol. But my third one didn't take naps either but was compliant and had his quiet time each day so Mommy could stay sane.
Good luck with the naps and your carpal!!!

Your husband is completely 100% WRONG about Labyrinth. It's one of the best movie in the history of the world.
That is all.

My mind is in such a fog that I can't think of a single word, no not one.

Shitty Movie!? Strike 1 Candyman...

I hope you're hands stop aching so badly soon!!

And naps...so precious...so wonderful...can I have her naps if she's not gonna use 'em?

Creepy Query Girl said...

lol. Too funny. Trippy is a perfect word for Pink Floyd. Their music freaks me out, like seriously, gives me a nervous stomache.
