We’re home from Maine now. I have a laundry list of things to do – namely… laundry… but that’s besides the point. I’ve already folded a bit. I loaded the dishwasher, made myself and Ginny lunch, captured a few cicadas that some one came down my chimney (yuck!) and then drove to pick up a bunch of mega blocks from a lady in my neighborhood. I had hoped the blocks would buy me enough time to get a few things done, but alas… they are spread out over Ginny’s floor and she is not anywhere near them. No… instead she’s “helping” me. So I’m sitting at the computer adding a few books to my wishlist and reving up to blog, and the following takes place:
“Mommy… here…” she walks towards me, then hands me a set of handcuffs my maid of honor gave us as a gag gift at a bridal shower. “Pretty mommy, here.” oh boy.
“Thanks Ginny” I respond as I set them behind my keyboard. Just what I wanted on my desk.
She walks away and returns with a package of bobby pins. “Mommy, Ginny hair please.” And I oblige, pinning her bangs back with a bobby pin and putting the rest behind my keyboard.
A few moments later “Mommy, here… tums.” And sure enough she is carrying a bottle of tums.
“Thank you baby.” You know I’ve probably got some sort of stomach problem if I say “Tums” enough for my daughter to know that word.
A few moments later she returns “Mommy, trash, here….” she hands me a condom wrapper. gah… get out of my drawer you little pipsquak!
But naturally I thank her, then tell her to go back to the blocks. That’ll do it.
But alas. “Mommy… here…” and she hands me a condom. Now… what I don’t understand… is how in the *ahem* heat of the moment *ahem* condoms seems to disappear from view and not one can be found but she can just *POOF!* find them in two seconds. :/
So now I need to clean out behind my keyboard, as it currently houses condoms, bobby pins, tums, a signle AA battery (which she said belonged with the TV… she keeps taking the remote apart), a too-small baby sock, and 2 hair clips.
Also… I think I need to find a new place to keep the condoms.
I’ll add that to the list.
