What I don’t get

How is it that a TV can hypnotize a child so.

You all know that look.  They stare and you can see that they are not taking in anything but the TV.  You can tell them that they can have a whole slab of chocolate but they won’t hear.  They are in a zone and you are not a part of it.

Why is it that the road always longer on the way back from vacation?

How is it that it rains the day you wash your car?

Why do my kids always fall or hurt their faces just before we have our annual family photos taken?

Why do food taste better when it’s not you who made it?

My brother and sister-in-law says the the best meals are those you didn’t have to prepare yourself.  Gotta agree.

Why do my hips grow faster than my hair? 

Maybe if I stop feeding my hips the energy will be redirected to my hair and I’ll have my long hair back sooner.  Yes, I’m still not happy with my hair.

How did Quintus go from that tiny baby in my arms to the little boy who is going to “big” school in January?  I still see him as being three. 

How do men manage to sleep through a baby’s crying?

Not just that – the light going on.  Mom talking to their baby.  Giving their baby medication.

Why does a woman have to carry a baby for nine months and go through the pain of labour before she can be called Mom but a man gets to be a Father by default.

What’s the use of spam? 

Honestly!  Does anyone really read it?  If they can get it right to send spam with the subject of something I’m interested in, why do they send spam that offers to increase the size of my penis?

  1. Yes, how is your penis Mel. I was just wondering about that – NOT. LOL

    You are too funny today.

  2. Yep, men can sleep through anything. James never hears Olivia and she’s laying right next to him (I know you co-sleep too!) And yes, why does food taste better? 🙂

    I washed my car today….

    I went to one store directly from the car wash, spent 10 minutes in there, and it was raining when I came out.

    It’s the modern rain dance.

  4. That was such a funny post! The thing about men sleeping through a baby’s crying – I don’t believe that they actually sleep through. I once tested W and when Dylan started crying in the middle of the night (when he was a baby), I heard him but did not get up (on purpose) and eventually W said to me “hy, Dylan huil” so I said to him “wel dan moet jy maar opstaan vir hom” and he did lol! They know that we will react immediatley, so maybe (if you can) pretend to be asleep yourself and see what Tommie does! Have a great day!

  5. I agree. I don’t have one, and I’m pretty sure that if I did… I wouldn’t care about what you are selling!!!

  6. I have washed my car by myself for the past 2 weeks and it’s rained every Monday. Yesterday I paid money to have it washed and again it’s rained. UGH. Had to laugh at the penis comment. Oh and my hair is longer than yours for the first time in years. LOL. Guess that didn’t make you feel better? ha ha – your hair will be long again soon. If it’s any consolation – I think it looks good and a change is as good as a holiday – or so they say. If you master the energy away from your hips and in to your hair please let me in on your secret.

  7. now thats weird- the trip back always seems faster to me than the trip there!

  8. Oh I loved this list – had me really laughing here. I know what you mean about food tasting better when someone else makes it – even a simple sandwhich – how true!
