So, perhaps without too much trouble you can imagine that my own mood is dipping south of Merry Poppins territory and headed more toward Evil Monster Mom land.
Unsurprisingly Evil Monster Mom lost her cool this afternoon shouted at Clara during lunch:
“Clara, get that pork chop off your head and sit back down at the table!”
Fortunately, though I didn’t let Clara know it, the humor in it struck me enough that instead of implementing my plan to run away from home to someplace childless and sunny I have instead decided to eat all the chocolate in the house.
… for now….
