Ok, so I know that I usually do the whole What The Heck? Wednesday Meme every week, but I’ve decided to change things up a little bit over here at The Mommyologist. We all know that I have plenty of What the Heck? moments each and every week, but sometimes I just feel that What the Heck? doesn’t do justice to some of the things that occur around my house.
Depending on how my week has gone down, I will now either be writing a What the Heck? post, or a GLAM CHECK! post. I will still have a McLinky each week and you can feel free to pick either of the two Memes and write your own post and link up!
Just in case you were curious, here is a little example of how to distinguish between whether you’ve had a What the Heck? week, or whether you need a serious GLAM CHECK!
I finally managed to secure an appointment with my one in a million hairdresser, but unfortunately the only time that I could get in was while the little dude was at preschool, so instead of sitting there and enjoying those two-and-a-half hours to myself, I frantically grabbed for my Iphone every five minutes to make sure that his teachers hadn’t called to report that he’d cut his finger off , and then I frantically looked at the time on the clock and tried to calculate in my head exactly the number of minutes that it would take for my cut, color, highlight, and brow wax to be finished and still allow me enough time to get from the hair salon to the preschool with a couple of seconds to spare so that I didn’t look like one of those late-ass slacker moms who never manages to pick her kid up on time.
My hair looks great, but I really didn’t get a fraction of the enjoyment that I should’ve gotten out of that appointment. In fact, I am still kind of stressed out about the whole thing. And did I mention that I’m doing a 14 day cleanse and part of that cleanse means that I can’t have wine?
What the Heck?
Hmm…let’s see…where shall I begin…
Upon picking my little guy up from preschool yesterday, I noticed that he still had a huge chunk of strawberry jelly on the side of his cheek from the jelly sandwich that I packed him for lunch instead of his usual peanut butter and jelly because I can’t bring peanut butter into the preschool lunch bunch arena (and no, I’m not complaining about it because I totally understand the whole allergy thing, but my kid barely eats anything and peanut butter is a main staple and sometimes I just panic a little about what else to feed him). I probably should’ve thought twice and grabbed a wipe out of my purse before I picked him up to put him in the car, but he was one step ahead of me and proceeded to wipe his mouth on my nice, light powder-blue spring trench coat. It’s now sitting in the laundry basket and I’m seriously hoping the stain will come out. What was I thinking in pairing a cute coat with a jelly-loving four year old?
The other morning, I sat on the couch and enjoyed a nice cup of coffee and a magazine while I let my little guy have a few minutes of computer time before we got dressed and started our day. He seemed really engrossed in the Lego website that he was looking at and started giggling like crazy. I went over to the computer to see what was so funny, and my precious son announced to me that he was Indiana Jones and that he had a whip. The whip that he was referring to? Oh yeah, that would be his little wiener sticking out of a hole in his pajama bottoms. I tried to rearrange his pants and shove the whip back in the hole where it belonged as quickly as I could. And while I was doing that my son went digging for gold in his nose and wiped a fat one right on my shirt.
Not exactly how I expected my morning coffee ritual to go.
Next time I think I’ll just wait until I drop him off at school and then go grab a $1 coffee from McDonald’s and sit in the peace and quiet of my car. That is, unless I happen to have a hair appointment.
