So Much WTF

Why do my kids insist on talking to me constantly when I have earbuds in, very obviously ignoring them? And they don't just talk, they're asking me questions. It baffles my mind - like when the dentist asks you shit after he wedges your jaw open with a foam block. WTF?

I'm wearing glasses this week because I have pink eye. Why is it so damn hard to get the lenses clean? No matter what material I use, how long, how hard or how soft I rub there is perpetually a greasy, blurry spot smack dab in my line of vision.WTF?

Speaking of pink eye - Dr said I got it from a sinus infection. I think I got it from these two little germ sponges I call my children. Sore throat, cough, runny nose, ear aches... Aidan had it all of about a day and a half because he's too damn mean for it to stick around. Asher hung on to it a few days and milked it for all it was worth. The Mr got only a bit of sore throat and coughing. He got pink eye too but don't try to tell him that *eyeroll*. Me? I'm down a lung, my nostrils are red and chapped from blowing my nose, and there have been moments when I was certain that the front of my face/head was going to explode outward. And this is going on Day 7 for me. WTF?

Aidan is almost done with indoor soccer. Baseball is next. Only I made the mistake of saying 'teeball' so he didn't want to play because he wants to play baseball. No amount of explaining the reality that teeball IS baseball penetrated his thick skull and I was having a hard time giving a damn if he plays or not. A day later he comes to me and asks if he can play teeball - like he just came up with it and the previously mentioned tantrum over teeball vs baseball never happened. WTF?

I am accompanying Aidan's class to the zoo on Friday. No, I'm not sure WTF I was thinking. Bet I get a blog post or two out of it though. That is if I don't feed myself to the sharks to escape the hell that a group of 258 kids at the zoo will surely be.

My girls do that too. I'm on the treadmill, running my heart out, and it becomes 20 questions time. I'm sick as hell, laying down, wanting to die,and I am suddenly the only one who knows where to find socks. All the time, the hubs is sitting on his ass watching a rerun of "Scrubs". Can't wait to hear of your zoo adventures *chuckling to myself of the misery about to visit itself upon you* :).

LOL, yes... lots of WTF goin on in your parts these days.
good luck at the zoo though, maybe you'll get lucky and your kids will be mistaken for escaped monkeys or something and be "returned" to their cage. :D just a thought to brighten your Thursday.

If you have anti-reflective coating on your glasses, that is why they are smudging. If you don't have AR coating, then I don't have the 1st damn clue why they are smudging.

Don't worry...that was a FREE professional opinion. Welcome!

Kids are dirty little creatures who spread pink eye faster than herpes in Hollywood. Make sure you do lots of hand washing (hand sanitizer only helps with bacteria, and most pink eye infections are viral.) I may have to send you a bill, after all....

Oh, and wash your pillow case at least every other day or you will keep giving it back to yourself.

You poor thing.... And what Opto-Mom said, I agree completely, consider that a 2nd opinion and I'll send you a bill, too!
As for going to the zoo with all those brats... errr, little bundles of joy, I believe your head was plugged with green goo and you were NOT thinking clearly.
Can't wait for the blog posts, though! TeeHee
