why i am not a nurse {or a food network star}

It has become plainly obvious to me today
why God didn't call me to be a nurse.
Or a babysitter.
Or anything related to someone who coughs and whines
profusely throughout the day.

God bless my Lucy...but heaven help her.
This child
just doesn't handle pain or anything uncomfortable very well.
At all.
(Note to self: mark calendar to be out of town the day she has a baby)

But in all seriousness
(actually, I was being serious),
she is getting better, but slowly...very slowly.
And I do feel so badly for her.

But life moves on with everyone else here...

And I'll give you 3,465 guesses as to what Brenden
is so intently looking.

Go ahead...guess.


Okay, I will tell you.
He (and Nick) were watching with the eagerness of
school boys (because they are school boys),
Giada, on The Food Network.


I chop, cook, bake, and blah, blah, blah...
just like she does.

But there's no admiration going on in MY kitchen.

And these are the reasons I am not a nurse or a Food Network star.

Maybe if you were a Food Network star the boys would watch you. Ever think of that? Glad Lucy is on the mend. Nothing worse than a sick child.

Lol, you make me laugh! :) you have a way with words... thank you for brightening up my day :)

So sorry to hear about Lucy, glad to hear that she's back on the mend, slowly :)

Jennifer said...

Oh girl! You've got me rolling! Glad Lucy is starting (slowly) to get better! :)

Holly said...

Ha! I am laughing out loud...again. :) And so glad Lucy is getting better. Poor little peanut.

Bahahahahaha... that is hilarious! As IF you aren't just as gorgeous at Giardia-whatsername. Yeah. That's right. I spelled it wrong on purpose.

As for Lucy...Sigh...I have Miss Drama pants too and last week when she had her bad day at the hospital, I was about to tear my hair out over her discontent. She DID suffer, but sheesh...could she suffer with a bit more dignity? You know...like give your poor old mama a break? I had the same thought as you...what will she do when she has a baby?! LOL!!

HA! Maybe if we hire a make-up artist, stylish, and then add a fan blowing our hair back as we cook in the kitchen, then maybe, just maybe, we will get the appreciation we deserve, LOL! Oh well, who am I kiddin?
