13 Things I Learned This Week


1. My daughter Georgia’s head is big enough to get stuck in the stair banister.

2. Her head is small enough that I can get it out myself without having to apply butter or call 911.

3. Apparently it is easier for Georgia to pee in the middle of my bedroom floor than it is for her to go to the potty.

4. A 2-year-old girl can only hug a cat so many times before he reaches his limit.

5. My husband can sleep through a tornado, but the sound of a cat throwing up anywhere in the house will make him bolt upright in bed at 3 a.m.

6. My 5-year-old son knows how to get to Netflix on the computer and find movies to play instantly.

7. I should not watch When Harry Met Sally when I know there’s a chance my children might walk in the room. I thought the movie seemed fairly innocent until I had to explain the “faking an orgasm” scene to my son. (My explanation, BTW, was “She just really liked her salad.”)

8. Gluten-free bread is nasty unless it is homemade.

9. Gluten-free anything costs at least twice as much as products containing gluten.

10. Apparently, I am the only woman in America who didn’t watch Sex And The City. No less than 5 of my friends have asked me to go to the movie, and they all seem shocked when I tell them that I never watched the show.

11. Men can’t take hints.

12. Target has great acoustics. A child’s screams echo. Loudly.

13. A piñata is a dangerous thing.

"Men can't take hints."

Truer words were never spoken. I've been married since 1966, and I still sometimes forget this. Which of course often leads to anger and disappointment on my part, and Cliff saying, "If you want something, just buy it for yourself. How hard is that?"

I've never watched "Sex and the City". Or "Desperate Housewives", either.

Funny, funny list.

I join you as the second other person to not watch Sex and The City, nor really care about the movie coming out tomorrow. The only reason I know is because it is my birthday so I noticed the date being broadcasted umpteen million times.

Love your explanation of the When Harry Met Sally scene!

And I'm another non-SATC watcher. Never could get into it. :)

And I thought I was the only one that didn't watch Sex and the City! I'm glad to hear that's not true.

Very funny Thursday Thirteen!

I never watched the show either!!

Sounds like an educational week!

And how many times can a girl hug a cat? My baby keeps cornering poor kitty - she pets softly, but poor kitty is so irritated! Fortunately we are leaving poor kitty in peace when we head back to Mozambique next week.

Sex and the City? What's that? *wink* Count me as a non-fan as well.

I guess I can join your club because I have never seen Sex And The City either....

Crazy Working Mom said...

Nope, not the only woman who didn't watch the show. I'm in your club as well. Never seen it!
