bad form

Sometimes Often, The Kidling is wiser than I wish she were expect. I mean, I am glad she is the most phenomenal human being I have ever encountered and could ever hope to interact with in this lifetime, but seriously. Can’t The Mama get away with something now and then? Case in point: doing odd things in odd places.

As you might have guessed, this wee blog is powered by many strategically placed notebooks. I have been known to make a dash for them in the middle of dinner, frantically yank them from my handbag whilst running errands, and enter near-panic mode when I cannot locate a notebook when genius or hilarity has recently ensued.

Thank goodness for the backs of cash register receipts.

So The Mama thought nothing of Β my recent perch for jotting down The Kidling’s most recent flash of brilliance. Until…

Alice: Are you going potty?

The Mama: Yeah.

Alice: While you’re writing!?!

The Mama: Yeah. Isn’t that weird?

Alice:Β Yeah. And kind of gross.

The Mama: You think?

Alice: Yeah.

A better blogger than I might ask for your input. “What say you, dear readers?” or a similar question to solicit your thoughts on matters related to this particular story. But guess what? I don’t care. Because without frantic scrawling in marker on construction paper, in pencil on gum wrapper, and in the occasionally properly-placed notebook,Β the book of alice wouldn’t exist.

So there.

And yes, I wash my hands.

    • Right? Everyone wants to have her hygiene criticized by a nose-picking, bottom-scratching five-year old with bad handwashing technique.

      (Confidential to Future Alice: All five-year olds are nose-picking bottom-scratchers with bad handwashing technique. You’ll find out some day when it is your turn to be The Mama)

    • I need a bit of help in the app department, Dean. I’ve been without my flip phone for a mere two months now, so I am just getting a hang of all telephone technology post-2000.
