Oh Those Pesky Homophones

"Pop into bed or I'll kill you with my bare hands." Mrs F teases Baby.

"You don't have BEAR hands!" Baby shouts out incredulously.

Cute!

How did night #2 go?

Mrs Furious said...

Despite Baby acting out and ripping Kid's doll accessories?! It went fine. They are getting up earlier because I have to take Kid to school and so they are tired by 8:30.
Kid tantrumed on the way home from school yesterday and was giving me a really hard time. Hopefully today will go better. I'm much less stressed than I anticipated... but... much more tired.

I'm much less stressed than I anticipated Yeah, because you have no one to take your stress out on;) At least that's how I always found it to be. Then when Tom would call or come home, I'd be on major edge.

I laughed out loud at Julie's response, because I'm the same way.

Don't discount the stress relief the exercise will give you even if you don't do it when it feels like it's stress relief. It's good for your body AND mind no matter when it occurs. Remember that!

Too cute! ;)

i agree that exercise is a great stress reliever of course you need the time for that. I thought Baby's response was too funny thanks for the laugh

I read that title as "Oh Those Pesky Homophobes." I could. not. figure out what bear hands had to do with gay people, and I was afraid to ask. :)

Mrs Furious said...

Robin,
lol that is really funny. I didn't see it as homophobes until this afternoon and I was wondering if that was going to be how people would automatically read it. I have homophones on the mind since Kid is learning about them in school.

Gigs said...

I have to admit I read the title of your post twice too, before I got homophones... But I LOVED that story. How funny!

I also related to Julie's comment. When my husband is not around I can always hold it together and manage just fine...but when he calls or gets home, suddenly it feels like it is/was so much harder. Why is that?

Mrs Furious said...

Julie, Deb & Gigs,
Oh you know that is exactly how I am. I think, for me, the truth is that it really is easier for me to handle everything without him around. Then when he comes back I resent him for not being a relief (even though he tries and wants to be) but being part of the problem. I think I wrote a lot about that after our summer separation and the ADD and how much more obvious all of that is too me (and annoying) when I'm not around it every day anymore. It is one thing that both of us are really, sincerely, worried about if we have to have a really long separation right now.
