Yes this post is about Benadryl. I have a cold. I am taking a lot of Benadryl.
Ahhh Benadryl.... There is no sleep like sick in bed on Benadryl sleep. Days can go by unnoticed. Sleep is the best thing for me when I’m sick. Benadryl turns out the lights, even if my eyes are open. I am not responsible for anything I might have said these past few days or for what I say in this post.

Anyways I realized a few things while I was laying on the couch (feeling sorry for myself) flipping through the channels. One thing was that I am one of the only people on earth who does not have a talk show. I've got to do something to remedy that. I’m equally as unqualified as anyone else to have my own show, yet there are so many who are not me who do. Perhaps I’m on a waiting list. This is what I have to believe anyway.

Secondly, I think Disney has something against mothers. Have you ever noticed there seems to be an awful lot of Disney movies where the mother is not present or killed in the opening credits? What is this about? Aladdin, Beauty & The Beast, Pinocchio, Nemo, Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, Ratatouille, Snow White....No mother, no no no no. What is the meaning of this? What is the purpose....beyond causing me to wonder about it the rest of the day? Because when your on Benadryl you wonder about stuff like that.

Other things i have been wondering about...

How can I get my kids to clean my whole house....

Why does my husband feel that, at the completion of his business, if there is even a square of toilet paper left on the roll, he is absolved of all roll replacement responsibilities. It’s hard to say if one square will be sufficient for the next user. It is also not his problem.

Why does Joby feel like he needs to take everything out of his drawers and pile it up in the corner of his room? What message is he sending?

Why do we drive on parkways and park in driveways?

What does hummus taste like?

So I could go on and on until you got really tired of me, tempting.... but I don't think it is going to happen.

I leave you with another thing I wonder about....why can't my boys always act this sweet to each other?

  1. Smiled as soon as I saw your post. I have been writing a "Things that get on my nerves..." post in my head all afternoon. I totally agree about Disney movies. Can you name one Disney movie with an intact nuclear family? I realize there are single parent households, but every single movie? And always mom??? I still haven't tried hummus. I asked about it not long ago on FB and honestly the description of it did NOT make me want to go out and try some. Love the picture of the boys. Oh, and your title? I thought maybe, just maybe, you were slipping some to your kids for some good rest. :)
