Another Overheard moment..

Two Things sitting huddled on the couch this morning, when I hear one say to the other "She's Crabby" "Yeah, I know".

HUH? I am not crabby. I'm just slowly waking up, looking around for missing lunch boxes, filling thermos for husband, figuring out what to serve his royal pickyness that is Thing One, and hoping that we've got what Thing Two prefers for breakfast. So what if I was a little snappy when they woke me up before I was ready. I'm not crabby...I'm just the mom!

I go back to putting together sandwiches of all shapes/styles, when I hear "Yeah, but I caught her, now she's mine".

Double HUH? I'm just standing here, stewing...
Oh wait, notice what the boys are doing: heads buried in their electronic gadgets...
Apparently, they had caught "CRABBY" some sort of Pokemon.

Yet again, that reminder that sometimes it really isn't all about me!

Just so you feel better... I still think you're crabby! (LOL!)

You mean our children's lives won't always center around us? This is news to me, as I have two level five clingers over here on Lisbon.

Soooo funny! Yet somehow when I hear my kids saying things like "MOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!! LEAVE. ME. ALONE." I'm not so much wondering if it's about me...
