It Just Might Make Me Grumpy

I hate daylight savings time. Its disturbing. Getting up at 5:40am when you know its really 4:30am just throws me and makes me grumpy.

You know what else is disturbing and makes me grumpy. Going to your regular Mexican fast food joint and as you order seeing a toddler in a pink princess dress wandering through the kitchen on the other side of the cash register.

You know what make me even more grumpy is realizing that that toddler in the pink princess dress is your baby who your husband is supposed to be watching while you get the food.

Not that that happened on Sunday. Not my husband no way! He would never fail to realize that his baby in the pink princess dress had left the table wandered into a restaurant kitchen causing kitchen wide panic as the restaurant workers tried to stop my little girl from making her way to a large vat of guacamole in the back of the kitchen to stick her hand in it. Nor would he ever completely forget that we have two children who need consent supervision and become so engrossed in a set of instructions to build a balsa wood airplane that he would allow both children to wander freely through out the restaurant giving his son time to shove eight lemon slices with rind into his mouth while no one watched.

That same man would not look at me shrug and say I thought you had it covered. Nope cause that would make me mighty grumpy. Uh huh....

My husband does the same thing and our kid is only crawling. I anticipate the situation becoming much like yours. :)

I hate.. I loathe daylight savings time. It screws with my kids schedule and it always seems to fall right after everyone has been sick and is getting back into their sleep routine. and then BAM! all hosed again. Not that I'm grumpy or something.

let me know how your panic works out. I know how you feel. Trust me.

That is a funny story. At the time though, you needed a big margarita with extra shot of patron. Sigh. Husbands.

You know all the BAD accidents happen while Daddies are "watching". Three feet in front of their faces.

Susan said...

I think you need a full time assistant. Remember several years ago when busy women were all getting "wives/assistants"? That's just what you need. By the way, you aren't related to Lucy or Ethel, are you?

I LOVE the image of the princess wandering through the kitchen. Too funny!

Debbie said...

How hysterical that it was your child wandering through the kitchen.

adrienne said...

That would make me grumpy, but it's still hilarious.
Give that little princess all the guacamole she wants.

Connie Weiss said...

Oh my...this could and probably will happen to me!

I agree...Daylight Savings Time is horrible. Why are we doing this again?

Vered - MomGrind said...

She's adorable!

I hate, hate, HATE waking up when it's still dark. Boo.

Marinka said...

oh, thank goodness that your son didn't do that. Because that wouldn't be good. adorable picture!

Helen said...

once again ... hysterically funny and little princess is adorably beautiful.

Daylight savings is worse in Germany because we're three weeks later so everything's off. No harm done, I'm sure the restaurant workers stick their hands in the guac all the time, but that's no excuse for not keeping tabs on your kids in a crowded public venue. Men!

Prefers Her Fantasy Life said...

I think that happens when margaritas are involved.

honeywine said...

I want her outfit. I'd have shown him how a pinata feels! lol

Aunt LoLo said...

oh no WAY!

Good thing that didn't happen to you...

TattingChic said...

Getting up during DST makes me cranky too, LOL!

April said...

oh, boo on him! i found my (2yo) son standing in the driveway next to the car to 'go out mommy!' a couple weeks ago. hubs was supposed to be watching him and i just happened to go outside and get the mail. hubs had NO IDEA he was gone. *sigh* how do you even fix that??? if you figure it out, let me know. then bottle it and sell it.

I can't believe how big your daughter is-it's only been 9 months since I was on the blogging scene and look how much I missed! Well I'm glad I'm back-she's a dolly!

In our house your Mexican restaurant experience would be an example of what we call "Mommy Style" versus "Daddy Style"...."Mommy Style" being supervise the children and make sure that they are safe, quiet, and happy-"Daddy Style" being as long as they're quiet he's pretty sure they're safe and happy and that's good enough for him!

I'm so glad we homeschool, so the kids and I never have to do daylight savings time! We just go about our schedules regardless of what the clock says. Hubby has a hard time with it though, especially working graveyard. Good luck getting your family adjusted!

Cat said...

She might have fallen in the deep fryer! Guacamole wouldn't be nearly as bad, for her anyway. I would have killed him.

Annie said...

She is so cute!

I think situations like that should make it acceptable for you to slap said man upside the head.
