I just like throwing this out there: I had a panic attack at the gym on Wednesday. The kids were in the daycare, I had just finished working out, and it just took over me. I laid down for a good hour until it passed, and I even had my mommy come and help me out the rest of the day.
I’m telling you this for two reasons:
1. If you get panic attacks, I want you to know it’s so normal.
2. I also want you to remember that you are never too old to need your momma.
I am getting my hair highlighted today. After I had Sam Bone, all the hair in my front head region fell out. It had the audacity to come cowering back all grey and nasty.
So, I’m doing the dye today. Decision made.
But, if you want another take on the matter, check out Kendra’s post on why she lets the grey stay. I always appreciate her POV.
I am working on two custom 8″ hoops for some ladies right now. One involves cupcakes, and the other involves birds. Loving both designs. If you want something custom, holla atcha girl. I will stitch you up good.
Sometimes there is a wasp in your house. When that happens, you need to get the spray hair gel out of the bathroom, and hose that sucker down. Make sure you get the gel all over the couch, windowsill and blinds. You really want to go for a big, gloopy mess.
Once the entire area is saturated, be sure to lose sight of the bug. Suspect that it fell under the couch, and text your husband one hundred times while he is in a meeting with a customer. He won’t be able to do anything, but it will help.
Try to forget about it until it crawls out from under the couch an hour later. Then, hold your son’s curiosity back while you ask your daughter to grab some tissue. Wonder what she is doing in the bathroom for three whole minutes. When she comes out with a scrap of tissue the size of a nickel, thank her and decide to kill the wasp with a library book.
Don’t tell the library.
While we are at it, a quick tutorial on how to go to the dentist:
Plan in advance by making your appointment six months ahead of time. Make it for the evening so it is more convenient for your husband. Remind him over and over again that the appointment is at 5, so he will need to leave work a tiny bit early. After all, you wouldn’t want to be stuck with a baby and a toddler (who is having her first cleaning too) all by yourself in the dentist chair. hahahah That would be crazy!
Then, make sure your husband doesn’t show up in time. You really want to make sure that you get a chance to calm down a freaked two-year-old and pull her out from under the dental chair because she doesn’t want Mr. Thirsty to come near her. Once she is finally done, hop up on the chair with your baby in your lap. Ask the baby to lift up your shirt to nurse a few times, tear off your paper bib, grab the tools out of the hygienists hands, and have an absolute fit when you won’t let him crawl around on the floor.
Tell your husband he is a huge nerd as he sheepishly enters the room and whisks the children away just as your appointment is ending.
Do all that.
