When I was expecting Shelby, people would tell me all the time, “Your life is going to change after the little one is born.” I always had to fight back an overwhelming urge to fake faint from the shock of that! Who knew, right? It would make Meat Galore mad when people told him that. He would come home and ask me, “Why does everyone think I’m an idiot? Do they really think I don’t know my life is going to change?”
But I don’t think we were quite prepared for the idiotic things that would come out of our mouths after becoming parents. Take today for instance. Imagine my surprise to hear my beloved shout, “Shelby! Don’t lick the trash can!”
I can only hope and pray that we aren’t still saying that when she’s in high school.
Patty over at Pip Stitch “tagged” me. For all of you non-bloggers, it’s the blogosphere equivalent of email forwards. But it’s more fun (and I kind of like Patty) so I’ll participate.
I’m supposed to share the 6th picture in my 6th folder. So here it is.
I took this picture on our way home from St. Louis last November. It’s on I-70 over by Lambert Field. I do believe that it’s the most non-sensical sign I have ever seen. Does it mean that you are in violation of the law if you are injured? Should everyone move off the roadway? How will injuries be avoided if everyone is moving off the roadway?
Okay, for those of you who don’t know me and who haven’t caught on to my super-dry sense of humor yet, I know what point the sign is trying to make. There’s no need to explain it to me. But you have to admit that it’s a pretty dumb and ambiguous way to word a sign.
I have to end this post now so I can go tell my kid not to eat toilet paper.
