Okay, birds are mostly harmless but I think their eyes are weird and they are dirty little creatures. But what I really hate is birds waking me up at 5:00 am with their pretty songs. I love birds singing after 7:00 am. Before then--Boo Hiss! Sorry. I will be happy to accept my "grump of the morning" award now.
I can't stand corn. I know, I know--you're thinking "How can anyone not like corn? It's so good with butter and salt!" LOTS of things are good when you smear them with butter and salt (popcorn, beets, asparagus, brussle sprouts...) so don't try to sway me with that one. I don't know why but the corn flavor does nothing for me. And I hate that it gets stuck in your teeth. And has a specific type of poop named after it (corn poop). And that it is all starch and no nutrition. When it comes to me, you can have my serving of corn. Deal?
I love clean children but I hate bath time. You probably just gasped because like 90% of moms think bath time is a blast but I can't stand it. I get wet. The floor gets wet. The tub gets ring around the tub (which means I have to clean it when I'm done cleaning the kids). Suds in eyes, fighting over bath tub toys, trying to find where my turkey baster is (of course it's in the tub, that's an obvious bath time toy, right?)... I wish I had a better attitude when it comes to bath time but I don't.
Yes, that is poop. No, not corn poop. Yes, I got him out of the tub before he got a hold of it!
When I was on the nest with my first child the news was always so traumatic (or maybe it was the hormones) that I always ended up being a teary-eyed mess. Shortly after my daughter was born I was having discussions with Matt about whether we would humanely kill her if society got *really* bad--you know, in the event that something like the holocaust were to happen again (you know what Nazis did to babies, right? *shudder*).
Okay, not sound thoughts. But if you've watched the news it's bad, on top of bad, with bad statistics, bad politics, bad celebrities, and bad news people pretending they are the only one's who aren't spinning the news.
I haven't watched the news in four years and I gotta tell you, I feel great! Now I can read news articles I'm interested in in about fifteen minutes a day. No commercials.
