Some days I think that parenthood is the most wonderful thing that's ever happened to me.
This blog is about all the other days.
All mothers and mothers-to-be need to see this! Hilarious!
Love you!This is what motherhood is truly about. Like the time my two year old daughter begged us to buy her a pet mouse, and then on the way home from the pet store she let him loose in the car (becausehe didn't look happy in the box). My husband was driving, so I was in charge of mouse retrival while my husband tried to keep the car on the road. After 35 minutes of having a mouse remind me that my pre-mommy figure was far better suited to chase a mouse around moving automobile, and seriously considering going back to the pet store to buy a cat... I caught the mouse! Which then wee-ed at least half of it's body's moisture all over my hand. I popped the mouse back in to the cardboard box pet carrier, and my husband stopped at the nearest store, so I could run in and use their restroom to wash off the mouse pee. Just my luck, there was a press conference going on outside the store, with the political candidate of the day shaking hands and taking pictures. As I am slinking past beginning to reek of pet store, the candidate grabs my mouse urine soaked hand and shakes it heartily. A split second into the hand shake the man realizes my hand is wet, and a troubled look passes over his brow as the local reporter snaps the photo for thr front page of the paper with him looking troubled me looking horrorfied as I as squeak out "It's only mouse pee!"Ahh, motherhood, there is nothing like it.
