Heather of The Extraordinary Ordinary chases two beautiful boys daily. In her former life she was a social worker and a more doting wife than she is now. Heather says “rocks the party” too much in an effort to remain cool. Mostly, she’s totally in love with being a stay-at-home Mom and wishes time would slow down just a wee bit so that she could kiss the chubby baby cheeks of her boys forever.

I was all proud of myself this morning. Because I took a shower.

Miles was at school and I gave Asher a snack and turned on Clifford, thinking “I can do this, I’ll just take a super fast only sort of get clean kind of shower” (the kind that leaves my hair less greasy but doesn’t really mean the bottoms of my feet were scrubbed. That kind.).

I got out of the shower and rushed to get clothes, thinking about how quietly Asher was watching the Big Red Dog. I’m an idiot, so I was pleased by his silence.

I was in the shower for approximately three minutes and dressing for about thirty seconds. I kid you not.

And just yesterday my friend and I were talking about how much we love Curious George, even if he does get into all that trouble. We blamed the Man with the Yellow Hat for George’s antics because anyone knows you shouldn’t leave a monkey alone so much. Especially not to “watch over the store” or all alone in a country cabin. I mean, he IS a city monkey after all. He’s sure to spill grape juice and then fill the place with water and suds trying to clean it up. (Don’t ask WHY we were having this conversation. I simply do not know.)

But I digress…

    Good article, as they say humor is the only real choice as the rest will usually lead one to suffering!! And when we are old and gray haired, we look back and realize that we have taken life and ourselves to seriously..
