Growing, Not Dying

Welcome to my insights, ponderings, and experiences. Hopefully they will enrich you in some small way, or at least make you laugh.

She Must Not Be Home

"It's such a nice day out today," I think as I meander out to the mailbox.

"MOM! Phone!" I walk back to the house hearing the machine kick on through the open door. *click* They hung up. Hmm...wonder who that was.

You see, our main line has no caller id box and is a corded phone right now. (The cord helps me remember to use the cordless voice-over-IP phone to call long-distance. We currently have 3 phone lines running in our 1400 sq ft house. Why? No clue. That's a Honey thing.)

"Ugh. Baby we have got to potty train you. I am so not a fan of stinky diapers." *ring* "Kinda' busy here, " I say to the ringing phone. *ring* "Leave a message" *click* Well, it was probably some survey or charity.

"Can we please keep the water in the tub?" Faintly from the kitchen I hear "Hi. I can't come to the phone" *click* Arg.

Besides baths, diapers and mail there is also potty training, cleaning, time outside and the occasional few moment I get to go to the bathroom myself, (rare as that might be.) If you want to talk to me, leave a message!

*ring* "Hello?" (Ha. I caught it this time.) "Hey Sis. Aren't you ever home? I've been calling all day!"

You need to train her to leave a message.
