Lucid Thoughts

Today I have had some lucid thoughts, and since it happens so rarely, I decided to share:

  • No matter how many toys a waiting room has, a child who has been given eye drops meant to dilate their eyes will begin to whine and/or go nuts after about 10 minutes.
  • If you are going to going to a high energy, body moving, high impact, dance/exercise class, do not go to Mexican food and proceed to eat your weight in bean dip, first.
  • When men leave work early, it is usually to go to watch ball games, to go drinking, etc... When women leave work early, it is usually to take their kids to doctor's appointment's, dentist appointment's, recitals, etc....
  • When there are 10 different Calliou DVDs available to watch, both kids will inevitably want to watch the same one (but in two separate rooms).
  • When your husband agrees to do you a favor without any questions, he will invariably call to change the plan to fit his wants/needs.

These lucid moments have been brought to you courtesy of our visit to the Pediatric Opthamologist (the appointment itself was wonderful, it was the down time that wanted to make me pull my hair out), dinner at Los Toros Mexican Restaurant (they give the absolutely best bean dip along with salsa and chips), Zumba (of course) and Calliou (the most annoying kids cartoon character).

Love the lucid thoughts especially about the difference between men and women and leaving work early. That is the damn truth...

AND I simply MUST try Zumba in '09 - I'm adding it to my resolutions!

:-)

Lee - One day I will take you to class with me. And then we can go out for drinks ;)

Amen sister to the third one... and the fourth one... and the last one. Oh heck, AMEN to the whole post.

Calliou is like nails on a chalkboard. His parents are freaks of nature.

Under the Influence said...

So true! Especially the men/women observations.

Janna said...

I couldn't agree more... especially about Calliou. I hate that kid! Zumba looks like a lot of fun.

Yeah, it's called Mama's Murphy's Law. Wait until your 2 kids become teens, then you'll have 3 of them on your hands...

Opus #6 said...

LOL. Yep, he agrees to get something at the store, and it's 50/50 whether he remembers.

Truth. I can't stand Calliou.

I have to disagree with you. Barney (and all his little friends) is WAY more annoying than Calliou. But that damn song does get stuck in your head!

Julia - okay I keep wanting to comment back to you directly after you comment on my blog and you have the no-reply blogger deal set-up and you have no email anywhere. Have I already asked you to email me with your email so I can communicate with you via email instead of just the comment section? If I have, maybe you don't want to send your email, if I haven't will you email me? leemwob@gmail.com

First I think we should drink and then Zumba. :-)

Calliou's parents are more annoying than even he is. Who creates a water park in their back yard with garden hoses and spray bottles? You know they're on some mellowing drugs or something.
