Little "M" begged me to lift her up to sit on top of our mailbox. At first I was a little reluctant because it's almost 5 feet tall and well you know. Well after I placed her up top I smiled and said, "Now how ya going to get down?" She looked @ me and said, "Oh Mom it's EASY CAKES". Now I've never in my life ever said anything that resembled "easy cakes" but I thought it sounded brilliant.
So pretty much there were no easy cakes to be found @ the zoo yesterday as I thought I was my own kind of brilliant to take all 5 to the zoo by myself. I was pretty convinced that it would be all happy happy joy joy as we basked in the glorious sunlight while observing nature @ it's finest all caged up. (I'm only a 50/50 fan of the zoo)
A deep rush of anxiety began to fill my whole body as I almost lost one who wandered off to climb the Serengeti tower. The anxiety never really left and came on strong again when the above culprits completely erupted like Mount St. Helens back in '80. It was all quite comical actually but I needed to get out of there quick before all of my pressure that was building went off like a whistling hot tea kettle. I beelined it as fast as I could to the car, in fact I think I made record time so that's why I probably missed what was going on with the car parked next to us.....
Picture this, triplet girls the same size and age as my boys. Their owners came over and exclaimed, "Do you have triplets too?" "Why yes, yes I do & twins as well." Well after comparing a few stats I soon realized that not a one of these people actually birthed these girls. They were in fact just the grandma, the uncle & the nanny. As we bid farewell I seriously thought now that's "easy cakes". Then the next thought of mine had to of been the icing on top of the easy cake when I realized that my cake was actually "CRAZY CAKES". Here's the thing, I really did almost feel part crazy as I realized my easy cakes were no where to be found that day. Well today the crazy lingered longer but as it wore off a bit I realized, yes I must invite a helper next time I venture out like that and yes I am so lucky to be able to be the one to be with my kids, not grandma, not uncle, not nanny.
I need a massage & a hot tub now.
