Now before you get too scared and think I’m gong to tell you a tale of true woe or a big old ghost story…RELAX. The following is a list of those moments that have struck true terror in my
oh so shallow heart. A kind of heart pounding that only the truly spoiled in the Suburbs can understand.
You know that feeling when you turn on your stuffed to the max, overused, completely relied on, run twice a day dishwasher and it makes a new and uncomfortable metallic clinking kind of a sound? An oh crap, that’s not sound good sort of noise? Yes, the distinctive sound that tells you in a matter of days you shall be washing dishes by hand…or eating off paper plates just like Kate and her Plus 8. That feeling strikes fear in every domestic goddess. Mama needs her dishwasher.
The moment when you slip into your fave little black dress and the freakin zipper will n0t do up. Well, it will do up, but only if you hold your breath, squish your wee boobs in and make plans to stand the entire night. Not good.
The most unpleasant noise of a little voice in the middle of the night whispering every so quietly into your ear “Mommy, my tummy does not feel good.” We all know this means vomit will follow. For me, vomit is more then unpleasant, yes, it borders on scary.
The experience of going to put on your “go to” pair of jeans, you know the pair, the only piece of clothing in your closet that makes your butt look awesome, only to discover the cat has PEED on them! Fave jeans, now garbage…and that cat had better have a bladder infection because it doesn’t matter how cute he is, he is in TROUBLE!
The true terror of your hair stylist calling just days before a big event to CANCEL your hair appointment because he is sick? What? Hairstylists can get sick! Unheard of! Panic.
Yes, as much as I celebrate the little things in life I must also acknowledge that sometimes theses teeny moments of angst make this Mama a bit stabby. Coffee usually helps.
What scary moments in your life bring on the heart palpitations? Please tell me I’m not alone!
