Nonna Nonsense Mondays...

Stephanie from Connecting with Stephanie suggested that I start a new traditional about my dear, sweet (crazy as all get out) mother (who means really well) and post once a week. Welcome to Nonna Nonsense!

After snuggling with my daughter on the couch for 30 minutes, I get up to go downstairs and cook some breakfast.

Daughter: I'm hungry Mommy.
Me: Okay, I will get breakfast started.
Nonna: Where are you rushing off to now?
Me: To make breakfast, like I just said.
Nonna: You were only here for ten seconds, no wonder your daughter feels like she doesn't get enough time with you.
Me: She's the one who asked me to make her something to eat.
Nonna: It's no wonder, she is a skinny as a twig. You need to feed her more.
Me: That's where I was just going... (stomp, stomp, UGH!)

After breakfast, we all pitch in to clean up.

Nonna: Can't we just sit here for awhile without rushing to clean up?
Me: But you said you wanted to get to the store while it was still cool out (note: in Texas, anything below 100 degrees is now considered cool).
Nonna: I do, we should leave soon.
Me: Then I need to clean up the breakfast dishes
Nonna: Can't you just leave the mess here while we go?
Me: Um...NO, have you met me?

Seriously, I am OCD about having a clean house. Especially the kitchen. I can't even think about heading out to the store with a table full of food and a sink full of dishes.

That's all I have time for today, but you are right Steph, I DO feel better. :-D


  1. AAAHHH we have the same mother! I can't write about mine though because she has freakin figured out the internet and how to read my blog.. Lots of my scolding anonymous comments are from that woman.. Love her but she drives me bonkers. Btw I'm OCD about the dishes and kitchen thing too. Drives me nuts!

  2. I'm glad to know I am not alone on this one. Any tips you can give me on how to prevent the insanity would be greatly appreciated!

  3. This is my favorite post of yours to date. It is sooooo funny. Like a Who's on First conversation.
    You are awesome.
    Now come over to my place and clean, please!
