Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


What if ...

Are all moms like this? You get this massive "what if" issue. Little Bit fell asleep in the front room last night after a day full of playing. I thought about moving her, but just covered her up and let her stay there since she was fine (and we have one more day of no school).

Then, of course, I wake up about 4 in the morning worried about carbon monoxide poisoning. Yeah, I know. Paranoid. So, I had to get up and check on her just to make sure.

Do all moms suffer from the "what if? ailment" or is it just me? *sigh*

    It's a Mom thing. Mine once forced Dad to turn around and drive 80 miles back to the house because she just knew she'd left her curling iron plugged in. (she didn't...)

    Dad tried to resist, but the waterworks & guilt stream started. "Do you want to come home and find our house and all our children's belongings burned to the ground??"

    Dad gave in, but it became my job to make sure the curling iron made it out to the car before we left the house on any trip. He would also make a big deal out of unplugging the coffee maker, the dryer and the space heater in their bathroom.'

    Man, if you could just tap into the awesome power of MomWorry, you'd fuel the planet...

    We have a basement rec room that the boys always hold their sleepovers in. Right next door is the furnace room and gas water heater. So, I always start to stress around 11:30pm that OMG what if they ALL get carbon monoxide poisening from the room next door (since that is where all of the gas related stuff is). I'm always saying..."I'm getting a detector tomorrow!" and then I get so busy and sidetracked and don't even think of it again until the next sleepover! LOL! Hmm. I think I'll go get one tomorrow!
