Gumbi

25 Sep

I spent half the night on the couch as a toddler mattress. When we both went back to bed at 4:22 a.m. my whole left side was stiff and aching and I thought, “Ooooog.  My body’s not cut out for this type of thing these days.  Tomorrow’s gonna suck.”  (Yes, I am always this perfect and coherent and eloquent at 4 a.m.  S’truth.)  

But I feel totally normal this morning.  Phew.  

I know I have the miraculous ability to carry life inside my body and all that, but this morning this feels far more miraculous.  Hallellujah!

    I have decided that “ooooog” is my new favourite word. It has all the benefit of onomatopoeia and is easy to say even without teeth.

    Wheee! Do I get credit for inventing it? 😉

    Having been a nanny once, I know how difficult to handle a toddler. But I had a lot of fun doing my job.
