Too much Big Bang Theory

I know right! It’s a very disturbing title. Too much Big Bang Theory. How does one really accomplish this? It is rather simple though so I’ll explain how you could possibly tell if your family watches this lovely show a bit too much.

It’s a wonderful Tuesday afternoon when my son and I decide that we are going to go for a walk. Why not. Today is my day off and there doesn’t seem to be any good reason at all why one should not walk today so off we go. We get about 30 minutes into this walk and it starts pouring down rain. Normally it doesn’t bother me much to get rained on but later this day we have back to school night and I’m all ready for that. (was at least) So my son and I stop under a bridge out of the rain for a bit in hopes that it will slow down. I’m trying my hardest not to panic that the van is parked about a mile up the road in this wonderful down pour and I decided it was a good day not to roll the windows up. So I’m starting to worry a bit.

This is a good time though for Mom and Son to share some one on one time and I guess my son was feeling this way as well. You know as a child when you have a question to ask and you know it’s going to be an uncomfortable question so you try to find the exact right moment when it’s okay to ask it. He found his exact right moment. Hiding under a bridge from a downpour of rain my son looks right at me and say “Mom, what is masturbating for money? You know like how Sheldon tells Penny they tried masturbating for money.”

That my dear readers is when you know you are watching too much Big Bang Theory. So until that time, carry on.


The parental spelling game never ends

If your a parent or have been around little children your aware of the age old trick of spelling the secret words. As a Mom of five I learned real quick that you can’t just casually blurt out, “hey sweety, we should take the kids to get ice cream.” when you of course value your ear drums. So we learn the spelling game. Then that sentence safely becomes, “hey sweety, we should take the kids to get i…..c…..e…..c…..r…..e…..a…..m.” It really is a wonderful thing. Until of course when they are all old enough that spelling doesn’t do you any good at all then you have to find places to hide to talk about ice cream. Strangely enough by that time your probably just hiding in the bathroom eating the ice cream by yourself anyway so it’s perfect.

With my youngest being nine I’m pretty much done with the spelling game. The only time I really spell anything now is at a child’s request and most of the time I’m not really sure how it’s spelled and have to write it down to see if it “looks right”. (you know you’ve done that) So my spelling game days are over. Well they were till yesterday when I was talking to my family family about something very trivial and I mentioned the word walk in a sentence. Just the word “walk” nothing at all special about it, nothing you have to get excited about, my ears didn’t burst with the screaming but suddenly I noticed that my dog was whining and intent on listening to my every word. His ears were perked up, his tail was wagging he was ready to go on a W……A…..L……K.

I guess the spelling game really never ends.
