Studies in Time

Quick! How many minutes does it take for my 4 year old to "wear in" his new bicycle helmet? Exactly 46 minutes after arriving home with the aforementioned bike helmet, he managed to tumbled off his brother's bike right on his head. Safety equipment is put to very good use in my home. Don't even get me started on safety glasses. We keep a pair in every room.

Next question: How long does it take me to dump coffee down the front of my white t-shirt first thing in the morning? Exactly 23 seconds after I start to dance around to the Jazzercise music on the morning show. Good grief, you'd think after 34 years of living in this "way less than graceful in fact beyond clumsy" body, I would have learned. If there is something to trip on in any given room I happen to be walking through, I will find it. In fact, I've been known to trip on thin air. I've also run headfirst into my fair share of poles. Why the heck do they have to stick those things in the middle of large rooms anyway? I mean aside from holding up the frame of the building and everything...

Final question: How long does it take me to succumb to the temptation of chocolate cookies in the cupboard that I bought for hubby and kids when I'm supposed to be snacking on yummy radishes today? I'll get back to you on this one :)

I loved the visual of you dancing around with the coffee! LOL! I laughed so hard that I had coffe up the nose... not a good thing. I so hear you though... there's a reason one of my husband's nicknames for me is SPOT.
