Act One: Harried mother tries to get two children under the age of 4 in to the car whilst remembering snacks, diapers, water, swimsuits, swim diapers (I forgot them), a book (ha!) and sundry parenting crap.....
Lucy: Waah, waah, waah, waah!!!!
Anna: Mom! Mom!
Anna: Momma, why are you so mad?
Me (slapping on my air hostess everything's fine smile): I'm not mad love!
Anna: Well your face sure looks mad
I thought this was funny. I think I even snapped out of my defcom delta parenting mood and smiled. What's not so hilarious is me relaying Anna's words of wisdom to a fellow Santa Barbara parent when we finally arrived at the pool and receiving this in return "I know, kids are so receptive to your moods aren't they, you know, sometimes if you just take a deep breath and think it won't always be like this it helps".
Or you could laugh with me, not at me lady.
