My daughter has a little school concert tomorrow. One song includes the words
“lately I’ve been going through some things that really got me down. I need to find someone to help me start to turn my life around.”
I am sure all three year olds can totally relate to the gravity of these lyrics. Just yesterday Stumps laid bare her soul and confided to me that she spilled some grape juice on her favorite pair of Dora socks. Preschoolers deal with some heavy stuff.
Bonus points if she picks her nose while singing this verse
Hanging out with Husband , arguing about baby names. Husband’s votes were “Ashley” and “Jennifer”. I let him know that the early 80s called and they want their Top 10 Names back. I suggested “Ryan”. Husband informed me that if I burden our little girl an androgynous name, I will be a single parent by the time she arrives.
When I insisted that “Tierney” is a beautiful name, Husband replied with “It is a beautiful name… for a stripper.”
I may disappear on him at the 8 1/2 month mark and return a few weeks later with a sweet newborn baby and a signed, unalterable birth certificate.
