Now when I say that, my friends and family usually head for the hills....I am a dreamer, which is probably why I married the most practical, grounded man on the planet and also why I keep my dad and my friend Susan close at hand.
But forget necessity, I'm beginning to think insanity is the true mother of invention (especially since the two so often go hand in hand).
As I posted a few days ago, when I spend the morning negotiating the consumption of breakfast, wrestling clothes on very fast children, and trying to keep my son out of EVERYTHING so I can just do something that makes me look less like a homeless woman, I am sometimes ready to have a tantrum of my own.
Instead of turning into THAT mom, however, I just remember someone telling me that it is all just a small moment in the day and I suddenly break into a quiet rendition of one of my least favorite songs, "One Moment in Time".
But it distracts my children for a moment, allowimg me to regroup and prevents me from screaming like a banshee and accomplishing nothing aside from a great lesson in screaming.
So why not make a compilation?
What other songs would be good in the vein of "Mommy on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown"?
I can't stand "I Will Survive", though it may be fitting; but, there have to be other songs that fit a near meltdown moment.
I'll be brainstorming in the Comments section all day...with a frequency that may or may not depend on inspiration.
Will see if O agrees to the jean skirt.
