Weird Thursday Truly

This is without doubt the weirdest first week on a job, that I have ever experienced. Strange is the word. Red flag here, red flag there, good day, bad day, weird day, no rosy honeymoon time with these folks. I'm just trying to put it together. What has happened before to loose this staff, and um excuse me, TWICE. We shall see.

My friend said she felt like selling her toddlers to the gypsies. I would've loved it myself, even when I was a little girl. My favorite dress up was a gypsy or a pirate,great fun, no costume in a box for those!

In honor of all frustrated mothers.
I will sing you a little song.
you must imagine the tune unless I find one on u tube.

Today is the day
we give babies away,
with a half a pound of tea,
so if you know any ladies
who want any babies,
just send them right over to me.

I mooned and I crooned
that little baby a tune
trying to get him to sleep.
And if he doesn't quit soon,
I'm going to hit him with the spoon,
and put him out of my misery.

I learned that in my Single Mothers Support Group it is the only thing I remember; besides finding out that all four year olds skip the wiping part of potty training.

Cheer up moms!

Ha ha, cute song, I can relate to the 4 year olds not wiping! I have a 6 year old with the same problem STILL! I am told your card has arrived! Woo hooo!

I was talking to a friend yesterday that hasn't slept in days because she has a teething baby. I may have to print this out for her just to get a smile.

It sounds to me like you are doing a great job at the new work. Your co-worker sounds a little like my MIL--nothing is too hard for HER brilliant mind! LOL

What! No disclaimer for poor Debbie in CA. LOL I am living the potty training over and over and over again... I love that little ditty... sounds like some of the lesser known Mother Goose rhymes.

MaBunny said...

HAHA, love the little ditty. Not going thru the potty training thing anymore, but what about husbands? do they ever fully get out of 4yr old mindset of potty trining habits? lol

Heidi said...

Potty training..... whats that? I have all boys remember so peeing outside is SO NOT potty training!!! LOL

Karen said...

There are days that the gypsies wouldn't even take my brood. I'm sure of it.

Debbie in CA : ) said...

Hey, Becky's right! Girlfriend ... where's my disclaimer?? (Is this a regular feature?)

You crack me up!

I love you!
