And So We Wander....

When as a mother, you get a moment to stop. Sit. Have a cup of coffee. And listen to....silence.

(Yeah right...)

No really. We get that now and then don't we? Kids at school, napping? If not, proceed to kitchen for frying pan and go beat on the man that impregnated you. Right now.

Ok, so here you are enjoying the silence. Some people use this opportunity to clean. (Ick) Watch TV, read...ok. Exercise (double, triple ICK) Me? I wander. In my mind...wander off. I'm sure other people do it. It can't just be me. But my mind truly is a Wonderland of things to discover and contemplate.

Sometimes I have deep meaningful thoughts and conversations in my head. But mostly...mostly...it goes something like this.

Ah...it's quiet in here. Bliss!
I should pick up those toys....nah.
Why is that Barbie staring at me?
Why is it naked?
Why is it always always naked?
I remember when my boobs were perky like that.
Why does my husband always grab my boobs when the kids "aren't looking"?
What does he find so appealing about me bending over the dishwasher?
I should take chicken breasts out of the freezer for dinner.
Last time I made chicken the kids said it smelled like feet.
Why does the boys' room ALWAYS smell like feet?
When is the last time they had a bath?
When is the last time I had a shower?
If I don't shave soon I am going to have to get me some Birkenstocks.
I should add granola to the shopping list.
That Barbie is still staring at me....

Were you inside my head?! My 'train' of thought feels less like a train and more like a 32-car-pile-up during rush hour. And they are ALWAYS naked. ALWAYS.

Focusing on Barbie can lead to severe stigmatism. LOL. You captured the mom's train of thoughts so well!

Gingers Mom said...

You ladies are a crack up. LOL. A 32 car pile up. What an accurate description.
And what is it about the nakedness? I think Barbie is some kind of dirty dirty whore....
