Random Not-Monday

In CategoryNavel Gazing, Random Monday

We took the kids out for breakfast this morning.

I have avoided this sort of thing for years, because taking small children to restaurants, you know, sucks.

Today it was good, though. They can feed themselves (mostly), AND we are now past the age of needing booster seats!

It’s a new day, people.

There was a small-ish incident wherein my daughter needed to go potty, and when I was getting her situated, my sunglasses fell into the toilet.

This freaked her out a little, if by “a little” I mean she rocket-propelled herself off the toilet with her pants around her ankles, pinged around the filthy stall for a minute and then made grabby motions at getting them out.

Grabby motions ONLY, no actually grabbing thank goodness, or I would have been the one flipping out in a dirty bathroom stall.

When I got back to the table, I told Jim what happened and that the manager was waiting on him to come fish them out.

He didn’t even blink an eye.

I must be losing my touch.


Thank goodness it wasn’t my new iPhone (that I love so much I want to marry it). That’s the stuff of nightmares.

    Ewwwwwwwwww…..I would have left them there and purchased new ones. I hope that you boiled them in cholorine bleach. And then I still would be afraid to put them near my face.

    Dude, I totally abandoned them.

    I don’t even really like little kids books from the library because they are so cruddy and germy.

    I would have left them too.

    My kids are excellent at eating in restaurants. Because them get to eat food that I don’t make at home.

    Sometimes we think eating out is a good idea with our three kids five and under. And when we’re sitting there inhaling our food because we know the bomb is ticking we wonder why we don’t just order in pizza. Again. Anyway, I’m on Pin at AprilM3RH I think. There’s a button on my sidebar but if you’ll let me know your Pin name I’ll find you.

    SO so funny, Deb. I could totally picture this, in technicolour even—you squeezed in the stall, your girl freaking out, you leaving your glasses (so sad and smelly now) to their fate. Brilliant.

    You’re like my own personal movie cinema, Deb, where I can go and know that every time I’ll laugh/cry/smile/empathise/learn/feel something fine. And then I can walk out into the day saying to myself, Now that was a good time! That was worth every penny!

    And you’re FREE. Blows my mind!

    Love that she was pinging around in the bathroom. 🙂

    Too funny! The only diffrence – had I been in your shoes – would be my child settling down and calmly saying,”I’ll go get Dad…”

    The mantra in our house for getting help with anything gross or unpleasant is “Go talk to the man.”

    As always, another great read!
