The Joys of being a Mother?

I have seen every Bill Cosby show on television. I have watched the Bill Cosby Himself video many times. I don't think I have ever heard the whole thing because I laugh so hard.

Dr. Cosby has no idea, but I have used some of his techniques with my children. I have also used a couple of his comedic skills when dealing with a child by thinking like the child.

I also have seen every Home Alone movie. I love them! My son who is a very creative boy with ADD and other co-morbid disorders also loves Home Alone. What he thinks is funny probably is funny at some point, but not at the moment if you are the victim.

After a meltdown yesterday, he had to go up to his bedroom. When it was apparent he was throwing objects from his bedroom window again, I decided it was time to go upstairs. I opened the door and a pair of sandals fell on my head. I was not in a good mood by that time anyway so the sandals falling on my head was not funny at all. I started storming up the stairs and I saw a football helmet hanging from a piece of rubber at the top of the stairs that formerly contains said sandals that fell on my head.

Today I can crack a smile. Yesterday I was almost in tears. The person who made the comment "The Joys of Motherhood" had to have been a man because sandals on my head then going into his room and seeing a smiley face painted on the bedroom wall in purple paint was not my idea of joy.

It is time to put the Josh music on as I need to balance my mind. The boy is at his friend's house but he will be back. I almost feel like Mr. Wilson from Dennis the Menace.
