Rock the Cradle of Love

OK. This woman is obviously sleep-deprived and delirious. WTF? D and I have always agreed never to let the children outnumber the parents. I love my children to death but sometimes I have questioned my own sanity after dealing with the tantrums and over-dramatization of the most inane situations. PLUS, I find that prolonged, consistent exposure (like for example when your husband is having a nice holiday in New York the same weekend your 15 month old daughter decides that she no longer needs an afternoon nap and would rather try her hand at riding the dog like he's the Black Stallion) leaves even the most intelligent adult as coherent as Rain Man.

Case in point, on Monday while I was training a team member on our new software I actually said the following "And if there is no adverse event then you can click the tool bar to make the screen go bye-bye." Smooth Minty. Very smooth.

Kinda like when I say "Oopsy daisy!" when I drop something in the BOARDROOM in the middle of a meeting :D Funny read. As for the mom with 16 kids (and thinking of more:o) I agree with you - she is sleep deprived. Everyone knows the first thing to be affected when you are sleep deprived is your decision making power and logical thinking. Need one say more???

16?!? That is absolutely ridonkulous. Reminds me of a certain song in a certain Monty Python movie ... sad, really.
And this became the most linked and forwarded story on Yahoo! yesterday!

Not only is that woman sleep deprived, she lucky as heck she didn't bleed to death. She needs to put her uterus on permanent vacation.

Screen go bye-bye. I love it.
