Incompetence

Thursday, November 22, 2007




In the past twenty four hours :

  • I made a five year old cry minutes before he left for school. He has a loose tooth. Just not loose enough to come out. I refused to A: pull it out and when that plan failed I refused to B: allow his brother one quick punch.

  • I broke four dishes while washing dishes. In my defense, I had a great plan to occupy the three year old by letting him dry. I just failed to catch the ones he look a baseball 'ed me. I caught some of them. After four, I made him go watch Shrek.

  • We managed to trim all of Smokey's claws on her front feet. It only took two people, a dog bone, a leash, seven band-aids and one episode or crying (me - she scratched right by my eye. It hurt)

  • My dad gave me my moms old mixer. I bet it is older than I am. I used it to make gingerbread dough and it started smoking. I forgot about the smoke but was reminded by actual flames and meted plastic this afternoon. Some one Remind me to put the smoke detector back together in comments please. Preferably in the afternoon.

Sounds like me in the kitchen, which is why Erik does all the cooking.

Truisms:

The kitchen is not fun until something breaks.

I have smoke detectors but when our house was on fire all they did was annoy me on the way out.

Dogs love to test our unconditional love.
