#31daymarch BLOG CHALLENGE- Days 8-10 (Don’t worry- I’ve abridged)

10 March 2013, 10:57



Playing a little catch-up here. I promise to not make your eyes bleed and keep each day short and to the point. Plus, Charlotte keeps dropping trou and it’s only a matter of minutes before last night’s dinner ends up in a nicely packaged pile on the living room floor, so speediness is a necessity this morning.

Day 8: Pet Peeves

- Grammar abusers. (I know that makes me sound like a snob, but it hurts my soul.)
- Captcha
- My kids’ incessant need to eat 24 hours a day. We’re one apple away from a padlock on the fridge. (And by one apple, I mean that they’ve each already eaten 3 before noon. In addition to the entire week’s groceries.)
- Anyone physically hanging on me. Whether it be the kids, my husband or Ryan Gosling. (I can’t even pretend that last part is true.)
- People who litter.
- The words, “totes,” and “adorbs.” Although, shockingly, “LOL” doesn’t phase me in the least. A piece of me is still 19.
- Anyone who attempts to parent my kids when I’m standing right next to them. (I’m looking at you, lady in the aisle of Christmas Tree Shop.)
- The MOTHER EFFIN BINKIE. (Post age 2. I am also, at the same time, a 100% advocate for the binkie. It’s the relationship I now have with it as we try to get my strong-willed almost 4-year old middle child off of it. I’m equating the process to what it would have been like to give birth out of my ass.)

Day 9: Bucket List

I feel the same way about buckets lists as I do about New Year’s resolutions. The more pressure you put on following through every item on a list, the more upsetting it is if you don’t get it done. I know that sounds awfully dramatic for a question that is simply asking me what I would like to do in this world before I die, but I’m nothing if not dramatic on a Saturday morning before a second cup of coffee.

I suppose I would love to eat a baguette in Paris or dive the great barrier reef or make it through a week without losing my shit once, but these are lofty aspirations, so I refrain from the pressure. I already have enough to worry about– like how I’m going to get tax prep done by the end of today. I will say that it would be stellar to someday take a cross-country road trip with my husband and girls and hit up every theme park (and restaurant featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives) along the way. You know, for when I eat carbs again.

Day 10: Daily Routine

Last summer, I wrote a post on Providence Monthly about what a typical summer day’s routine is like with kids. Instead of writing another one, I’ll just refer to that one. Feel free to place any season in the equation. It all works the same.

    So funny.

  2. Tami March 10, 2013

    OMG that list is hysterical and so true it hurts!

    Hate to play worse case scenerio with you, but just wait until you have teenagers. I don't even bother to put away the groceries - I just throw them on the kitchen table and let them graze. Of course, I have boys. I hear girls are different.

    Now after seeing so many people with Captcha on thier list, I'm going to make sure I don't have it turned on. It's been so long since I set it up ...

    You made me laugh with these, which is difficult to do with two wild children and a cranky husband screaching in the background. Thanks for brightening my day. Now following along.

    We definitely share a lot of the same pet peeves!

  7. Candice March 10, 2013

    You crack me up. Your pet peeves are a big ditto for me. I literally laughed out loud.

  8. megan @ ababymakesfour March 10, 2013

    Hysterical! I agree with all of your pet peeves, especially the food (I go to bjs and the next day I have no food in the house. How is that even possible??) and the random people who try to parent my kids. So annoying !

  9. I agree with SOOOO many of your pet peeves! I hate the word knapsack! LOL! Also, have you tried the "Paci Fairy" yet? You probably have but just thought I would throw that out there. Worked for both of my kids on their 3rd b-days!

    I'm trying to not spit out my wine (I don't have the money to get more this week... MUST SAVOR!)/not laugh so hard I wake the baby.
    You're amazing! THANK YOU FOR THIS POST! :)

    I actually bought a lock for the fridge but it wouldn't stay on, imagine my colorful language as 3 kids were trying to get into it.

    I have read so many articles or reviews regarding the blogger lovers except this article is in fact a fastidious piece of writing, keep it up.
