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
