“I Don’t Do That…”A Typical Quote That My Husband Says On A Regular Basis.

September 25, 2011 By: Lynn Category: My Daughter, My Husband, Pet Peeves, Simple Humour

If you are in a relationship or are married then you have probably heard that annoying phrase, “I don’t do that,” out of their mouth.  This is a quote that I hear on a regular basis.  There seems to be a lot of things that my significant other won’t can’t do.  Now you may be one of those extremely delusional  lucky women/men that think that you balance each other out and that they may not do something at the moment you ask them to, but they make up for in other ways.  Well, if that is you then I am happy *rolling my eyes* that you have that kind of support system, but for me in my house, that kind of support just doesn’t exist.

This morning I was getting my daughter ready for school, so feeling a little overwhelmed I was yelling asking my husband nicely to get back out of bed to change the baby’s diaper and get him dressed so that we could take our daughter to school.  So as a typical morning I am doing my daughter’s hair and asked my husband to put the baby’s shoes and socks on, well he pipes up,

 “I don’t do shoes.” 

Wwhhaatt!??  That make no sense to me!!@! 

Husband, do you wear shoes?” 

 ”Um, well, yay,” 

“well then you do shoes!!” 

Lord grant me the strength.  “I don’t do shoes,”  can you imagine, if I could get away with the phrase, “I don’t do that, “ then I am pretty sure that I would be on a permanent vacation on a tropical resort, being served by hot  half naked men.  These are some others that I hear quite often,  I don’t change diapers, I don’t do laundry, I don’t do silverware, I don’t cook like you and I don’t want to screw it up, that one is special.   All I know is that my son will NOT be following in his father’s footsteps.  ;)   Whomever gets my boy will be indebted to me forever!

Do you have any funny yet annoying phrase that your husband or significant other says to you?  Do you have a “I don’t do that,” example?

Leggings Are NOT Pants

September 14, 2011 By: Lynn Category: Feelings, My Daughter, Pet Peeves

For all of you ladies out there, that wear leggings, let me share with you….what the rest of us are thinking.  Leggings are NOT pants.

My daughter came home from school last year and informed me that there was a new fella starting in her class.  Yay for her!  I picked her up everyday at 1:30 (she was in Kindergarten at the time) parked there waiting for my daughter to come out,  I see the Ontario licence plate.  The mother gets out of her car parked behind me to go into the school.  I didn’t think much of it, she was a larger woman (not that I care) and considering how much work moving is I didn’t judge think anything about her right away.  She was wearing an a pair of leggings sneakers and a tight T.  So as the weeks went by, the EVERYDAY occurrence of this mother picking up her son up in her leggings was starting to get old.  I was mildly baffled that this woman was going out in public dressed like this.  But not only was she wearing leggings as an everyday occurrence she was trying to make them stylish.  Let me break it down for you.

DAY 1 (Monday) – First day of the week, she doesn’t want to try too hard, grey tights with a sneakers and a hoody.

DAY 2 (Tuesday) – Wants everyone to know that she exists a little, white, that’s right, white tights with a tight T and sandals.

DAY3 (Wednesday) – You’ll love this………tiger pattern tights with embroidery and black hooker boots that go above her knees!  Blouse and short leather jacket.

DAY 4 (Thursday) – Black tights with the double tank top look and thong sandals.

DAY 5 (Friday) – Dress up day, light pink tights with blouse, necklace and ankle boots.

On all occasions this mother is going into the school with all of these choices on and NO UNDERWEAR.  Not even a thong!

What I want to know is who told her that wearing leggings in public was OK!!!!  Doesn’t she have any friends that have her back so that she wouldn’t be laughed at. But really not even laughed at, people looking at her are astonished.  They shrug their head back with the disbelief that she could possibly allow herself to be humiliated like that.  Now I understand that people that are overweight feel as though they have less options, or clothing choices, but really she is about a size 18, that isn’t unusual with what our society weighs nowadays.  Where are the fashion police.  I feel sad that they haven’t been told that they are doing an injustice to their body.  To their class.

Just because they are the color black does not mean that they make you look smaller!  You do not look smaller, I just happen to see you cellulite easier now.

Do you personally know somebody that needs to be spoken to by the fashion police?  Do you know someone that wears leggings and it doesn’t flatter their body?

What Is The Fascination With Public Toilets?

September 11, 2011 By: Lynn Category: Annoying Traits, Bad Habits, My Daughter, Pet Peeves, Simple Humour

What Is The Fascination With Public Toilets?  I find myself giggling while writing this post because it is such an every-other-day occurrence.  My daughter LOVES and I can’t even stress that enough…..loves public toilets. 

We aren’t in a store very long before she starts to do the pee dance.  She longs to go into public washrooms.  I’m not quite sure what her fascination is with them but she just can’t help herself.

Personally, I think that it is massively annoying, especially considering that I have the baby now.  Before, it was mildly amusing simular to the article I wrote about , when my husband chews gum, and sneezes three times.  It’s strangely funny like that.

My daughter loves going to public toilets, if you want to see a child’s eyes light up, then you should know that she also loves port-a-potties.  Now mind you, I know you are reading this and you are probably saying to yourself, “do they really let her go to all these washrooms….all the time?”  Well, we don’t but the point is, when she even catches a glimpse of them, it’s like her radar goes into overload and she’s acts like a dog at a fire hydrant.

Anyways, as funny as it is, it’s still annoying.  *smirk*  Do you or someone you know have a fascination with public bathrooms?  Most people don’t want to go into them, but you haven’t met my daughter!!
