The Other Mommy
While I find the portable DVD players that we bought for our car a blessing on roadtrips, I have mixed feelings about them for day-to-day travel. For starters our DVD players are not top of the line so they restart the DVD every time you restart the car. I've heard the previews on the Monsters Inc. DVD no less than 360 times. I'm certain.
Moreover when the movies are playing, my kids are not talking. When they talk it's a real gut buster. Recently I got on Coop and Mason's case for running away from me in public places. I said something about it really scared me when they ran away because I was afraid someone would take them away. This ruminated for a few days and came out like this...
Coop: If I run away and someone steals me, you won't be my mommy anymore.
Mom: *thinking to self, please don't say you want to get stolen because you don't like me*
Coop: That would be bad because her won't know how to drive me around...
Mom: That's right. You remember that.
Coop:And her won't bake bread for me...
Mom: *melting heart* That's right. Should we make bread today?
Coop: And her won't come looking for me like you do.
Mom: *thinking, where's a pen, this is the funniest thing I've ever heard*
