What’s Bugging You?

Jack is totally in to the Backyardigans (in Jack-anese that’s “back-ya-ya-ya”). There’s this episode that he’s fixated on where the Ya-ya-ya’s chase the wormens around the house singing “what’s bugging you, what’s bugging you, do you have a pesky pest?!”

Seems there’s pesky pests everywhere these days (Here: we are talking literal and figurative!).

In my old age, I’m getting a bit grouchy. Or maybe because it was recently full moon. Or perhaps it’s because it’s August. I don’t know. But, I’m having a rough week.

So, it’s time to make a new list. We did so well with the “Signs of the Special Needs Mom“… I figured we could vent our frustrations about life this week.

  1. “Does he have cancer?”—no. My kid is bald because he pulls his hair out. And he wears a mask because you could be harboring a cold, which could kill him!
  2. My boy is not potty trained, and really, it’s not a big deal. Unfortunately, everyone else in my life thinks this is the worst thing ever. The fact that my son has terrible lungs sort of trumps potty training, thankyouverymuch.
  3. “Stop worrying!” —really? REALLY?

(Ok, this is the part where you chime in…I think maybe venting it out, will make us all feel better.)
