While Mother’s Day is generally joyous, many people were not able to celebrate this year with their Mothers, or, with their children, be it long distances, social-distancing, or a recent death in the family, this year has been undoubtedly difficult. I was fortunate enough to be home with my kids that day, and for the most part, they were behaving, being sweet, and even took their naps. On one hand, I know they need their naps. NEED them, or else, all their demons come out and wreak havoc! But on the other hand, I almost hate when they are both napping because there I am, tip-toeing around the house, unable to really do anything until they wake, for fear of being loud and waking them… — Why does this silence and stillness drive me nuts?!
On a similar but different topic, someone very dear to me lost their Mother recently, and I tried to express my feelings to them.
“Sexist Liver Side” is what my phone sent…
My phone had “corrected” what I was trying to say. Well okay then phone, but actually, that’s not what I meant!! I know this has happened to all who have phones at some point, but seriously, that was not the appropriate time to be silly.
If only my mouth had an auto-correct so that I wouldn’t say the wrong things sometimes…
My brain almost has one. I have referred to them as the committee… — They argue and disagree among themselves before coming to a final decision. A process that I’m unaware of but others have mentioned seeing happen in real time, as I nod my head yes or no to myself.
And I know I’m not alone; I have noticed my Son nodding emphatically to himself when he agrees with something, even for a few minutes afterwards.
