...are you one of THOSE?...

people stress me out sometimes. 

especially ones who act all freaky around kids-- specifically MY kids. 
"don't go in there", "don't touch that", "come sit over here", "careful!", "don't give my daughter that", watching their every move as if my 4 or 5 year old will destroy their garage or house (or child) if they lose site of one of them for 5 seconds. 


and then i'm all wigged out, worrying what my kids are doing and what the heck they could be touching. ugh. i get tense and tangled and no fun at all. can you say STRESS?

sometimes i feel like just holing up in the house. forget the polite chatter- i'll just stay indoors.

call me when you've taken your valium.
