Well, it was bound to happen...I lost my mind this morning.

Was just a matter of time. A matter of two long months of extreme mental anguish, stress, lack of sleep, screaming children 24/7, premenopause, and Lar buying vanilla frosting instead of dark chocolate -- LIKE I EXPRESSLY WROTE ON THE SONOFABITCHING SHOPPING LIST!

One cannot put vanilla frosting on a white cake. Should never be done, not ever.

One cannot expect a human being to gracefully endure all that I have lately without some sort of repercussions. I am not a robot, despite my stolid exterior. I have tried to hold it together, truly I have. But my God, VANILLA FROSTING???

I believe with all my heart that Lar deserved to be threatened with a cup of Kid's Kitchen Macaroni & Cheese.

Yes, you read that correctly -- I raised the cup of Kid's Kitchen Macaroni & Cheese and threatened to smash it on his head.

I also screamed at the top of my lungs and hurled toilet paper about the kitchen.

Then I shrieked the following:


I admit, that was shameful.

I hang my head in shame.

I'm not sure why Toledo. But the basic idea seems sound. Maybe just take the kids and go elsewhere? Anywhere?

Why do you have toilet paper in the kitchen? Or do I just not want to know?

Just a word of encouragement Toledo.

None of us goes into parenting with any experience. If we really knew what we were in for, a lot less of us would have done it.

Still, most of us manage not to kill the little tykes, and after a very short time (about twenty-five years) we are extremely glad that we did it (usually).

What is it about a shopping list that turns some men into illiterate dolts?

Carol, see my new post! HA! No kids, man.

Rabbitch, I was putting away groceries. Ay carumba!

Anthropositor, I appreciate that. Thanks. Actually, I'm pretty damned happy with my brood -- well, except when I'm not. ;-)

Kirby, lists require reading. 'Nuff said.

Toledo, Ohio, or the one in Spain (or some other decadent European country)?

Now, about the white-on-white thing. Here's my thinking: it's frosting, it's cake. Now I admit I am not an expert in the field of aesthetics, but if I'm getting tasty sugary treats, color is irrelevant (or is that immaterial?). I may be a friggin' Philistine, but I pretty much feel the same about car color, and, to some extent (god help me) clothing.

So glad you are feeling better dear. A droll sense of humor is such a help with family life.
