ADAGE: a saying often in metaphorical form that embodies a common observation
During my work session at Son’s school this week, the parents were banished from circle time so that the kids could plan a surprise for the graduation ceremony. During our gab fest in the other room, one mom mentioned that her infant daughter hadn’t pooped in days.
[The fact that talking about stools seems like a normal thing to do when given the opportunity to chat un-interrupted with other grown-ups is evidence of just how far down the rabbit hole I’ve fallen.]
A wise mom with older children didn’t skip a beat before replying, “Oh, just put on a crisp white shirt, nice pants, do your hair, and make a dinner reservation. Then, pick her up and she’ll have a blow-out.”
So. Stinking. True.
I often curse Murphy’s Law. Murphy gets the best of me often. But, this changes everything. I don’t know how I failed to think of this before. I just need to use my opponent’s strength to my advantage.
Watch out Murphy…I’m coming for you!
