The post office is closing in like 10 minutes (don't even get me started on the very short hours of country post offices). I have packages that I would have liked to be in the mail yesterday in the front seat. I have managed to get only Maddie and Tim out to the car, but not buckled up. Molly yells half way to the car "I gotta pee!" and darts back into the house. This is the slowest child in America, I promise. I wait. How long can this take? I mean you pee, wipe, and run...NOT THAT HARD. My patience is seriously being tested.....Tim is still standing in the van NOT GETTING BUCKLED.....Molly should have been done by now.....So I say "Timothy, tell Molly if she doesn't get her tail to this car I'm gunna snap!" (Yes, I still say snap. I know I shouldn't have brought that word out of the 90's, but I did, so there.) so he turns and yells out of the car door "Siiiiiiiiiis!!.... Siiiiiiiiis! Mama! said! come! on!" I honk the horn. Tim yells again. Maddie is now starting to unbuckle thinking we have been here so long we aren't actually going anywhere.....Just when I thought I was going to completely LOSE IT, Tim turns around and says, in the most serious voice, "Mama, you better snap cause she ain't comin." and I lost it. I laughed so hard I hurt! Then I called my list of "wanna-hear-what-Tim-just-said people" and told them, and they laughed!
I didn't make it to the post office in time, but that was OK, because it was totally worth having another "Tim story"...and ya know, that's just the way it is sometimes. This Mama gig isn't always easy, but you can almost always find something to laugh at! One of my favorite phrases is "if I don't laugh, I'll cry" and that is just so true....
I think I'm going to start a little collection of Tim stories here on the blog. There are some good ones, let me tell ya. This kid is crazy! We are always laughing at this little guy, he's our in-house comedian. He's also a *little* (A LOT) mischievous, but we wouldn't have him any other way.
By the way, I'm on Twitter now! I've actually been on there a while but I've just now learned how it works. So look me up! I'm handmadedress. I have committed to being very faithful for a few days to see if I like it, and I think I do.
And also, thanks for the Miss Mary love, I'm really excited about this one!
