Welcome back to Finish The Sentence Friday Blog Hop (FTSF). We give you a sentence and you finish it (however long or short you’d like). Please feel free to link up and follow any or all of our hostesses, which are below.
Plus, please be so kind to welcome this week’s guest co-host: Kenya from Here’s The Thing. We are truly so excited to have her join us this week as a co-host!
And now for this week’s sentence to finish: “A funny thing happened on the way to…“
Next week’s sentence to finish: “My best dream ever was…”
A funny thing happened on the way to..
Writing this article.
I actually had written the majority of it, while at the chiropractor’s and was putting the finishing touches up while I was doing the stationary bike.
My girls were in need of using the bathroom. Most times at three and four years old, they are capable of going by themselves, but of course the one time I do need them to indeed do this, while I finish my work all hell breaks loose.
I was putting down my iPad to go tend to Emma who was crying about needing my help and of course I hit the delete button on the iPad note that I had typed my post in. I was trying to hit send to my inbox, but instead deleted.
So not funny haha in the moment, but definitely ironic and I was fuming from this. And take it from a mom, who knows her meltdown’s well from being a contributor to this book (which by the way is on sale for Valentine’s Day for only 99 cents!), I felt one coming on any minute now.
When I finished tending to Emma, I began to check online how to recover a deleted note from my iPad and even downloaded a program to do just that on my MacBook to connect to my iPad to indeed recover the note I deleted.Recover Lost iPad Notes Program
The process took very little time for my iPad, but still again didn’t retrieve the deleted note.
So next, I tried to recover it from my iPhone, because the note was in the iCloud.
That took forever, because I have the iPhone 4, which is absolutely a piece of crap in plain English. I have been waiting to upgrade to a newer iPhone, but heard the 5S is not that much different, so even though I can upgrade I choose not to until the next version is released. But then I suffer with it running very slow and even making a recovery program quit unexpectedly (I know now I am just bordering on annoying here or could hear Kevin say this at the very least)
Anyway, the note is gone and my whole post for today is gone.
What was I going to share for this (in case you were wondering)?
Well, I was going to tell you all about the funny thing that happened when I was on my way home with my girls from pre-school the other day.
Actually anytime I am in the car with my girls is usually when funny things seem to happen to me.
Try for starters that my youngest child is the comedian in the family and usually can make me laugh no matter what she does.
Most of the times it happens while she is sitting in the back seat of my car.
This day in particular we were knee deep in the middle of the polar vortex. Lily starts to say, “I need my ‘babing’ (bathing) suit mommy.”
I turn and of course tell her that it is freezing out and way too cold for her bathing suit. She then turns and says firmly, “No, mommy I do!”
We go back and forth on this until, she giggles and says, “Laugh, mommy it was meant to be funny!”
She got me and totally was trying to all along on this.
As if this wasn’t enough for her, she then turns her attention to Emma and somehow baits Emma into asking Lily to be even more funny then she just was.
Lily turns to Emma and tells her she is done being funny and will be funny again later or maybe tomorrow for her!
This infuriates Emma and now she is telling Lily emphatically that she needs to be funny for her.
They go round and round on this with Emma yelling at Lily, “Yes, you need to be funny” and Lily arguing back, “No, I don’t!”
I know logically I should probably try to intervene, but by this point I am crying from laughing so hard at these two little princesses arguing as though they are two little ladies.
Honestly I was reminded of my grandmother and her younger sister (who actually had almost the same age difference between the two). So, because of this I was now in hysterics and just couldn’t help but laugh that much harder.
I finally make it home and Lily looks at me with a serious face saying, “I love you Mommy and Emma, too, but I am tired of being funny now, maybe later.”
So that was the end of funny for Lily (at least for that afternoon)!
Now that I have shared here, please tell me about something funny that happened to you, too!
