Today’s Mommy Meltdown Brought to You by Little Blue Happy Pills


October 7, 2008 by Marj Hatzell

Sheesh.  I should learn to keep my big mouth shut.  Remember how last week I was (ignorantly) gloating about how happy and well-adjusted and normal everything was ’round these parts?  Eye of the storm, my friends.  I’m chalking that one up to cold medicine, mmkay? And for now on?  When I say stuff like that?  Please gouge my eyes out with a spoon, because it’s preferable to listening to my kids scream like a banshee.  And this is what I look like when I’m having a meltdown:

I know, I’m looking rather haggard. I promise, I’ll start taking better care of myself.  Really! I will!

I’ve decided that I’d do something fun for a change.

Y’know.  Important stuff), I’ve got a challenge for you!  See if you can figure out what three things Bugaboo did last night that caused my meltdown. C’mon!  Don’t be shy!  Knowing his history of NON-STOP PARTYING, I know you can come up with it.  It doesn’t have to be in any specific order.  And the person who comes closest (without going over) wins a FABULOUS AWARD:

And for the Bonus Question for this round, guess how long it took Bug Boy to take his meds this morning.  Go ahead!  Guess!

I’ll wait…

    Sorry DG, hopefully today will be a better day.

    Bugaboo: toothpaste in the carpet, nekkid streaking through the neighborhood, and something involving poo.

    Bug Boy: 75 minutes.

    Poor DG! I hope you can get a nap today. Naps are good.

    I have my guesses, but I won’t frustrate you more…

    Oh, I just saw “little blue happy pills” and I was magnetically drawn to the post.

    I’m actually afraid to guess though.

  5. […] brings me to the next thing I should mention.  Remember the other day when I said, “Hey!  Guess what he did?  You’ll get an award!”  And a few […]
