Long ago- when I tried to be a good blogger and make little notes of post ideas- I wrote these next few lines."
You know you are a M.O.B.* when…
… your cell phone has pictures of bugs on it… in various stages of life and some not so much life.
… you have several cages in the basement and garage for the inevitable animal rescue.
… there are Styrofoam cups in the car with bugs etc. that didn’t quite make it in to the cage… or didn’t make it at all for that matter!
… socks are ALWAYS on the list of needed items. All different styles so they can be matched to the right child, forget to the original mate!
… it is not the volume of a scream that matters so much as the delay of said scream from the moment of impact to the actual hearing of it. Quick cry- no worries. Delayed cry- call 911!
...you own several varieties of compound w.
... you buy a box of band-aids every time you go to wal mart. Yes, every time.
… duct tape, electrical tape, super glue and zip straps are favorite stocking stuffers.
… buying 7 gallons of milk on grocery day means you will only have to make one or two more milk runs before the next grocery day.
… the freezer houses not only food but various items of science projects – both gone well and not so well! ... magnifying glasses are very cool for art class. Not always safe, but very fun.
...there is not enough shout or zout or oxy-clean in the entire world to adequately keep their socks clean.… even pans with a life time guarantee do not stand a chance against a young man learning to cook.
… you look at the young men in your home and melt when they call you mom. If they happen to say “I love you” or give you a hug- it is all over. Even I cry- and that is saying something!
