This is the expression
This is it folks, the exact expression I often get from John. This is the "God help me, this woman is in charge of our kids all day!" expression. I'm very familiar with it. Really sometimes I wonder why I don't just keep all of the close calls we've had to myself, but I just can't help myself, once the fear or embarrassment or shock has passed I always see a little humor in the event that I think I want to pass along to John. He's not always laughing though. This week I earned two of these hand to eye's, slight shake of the head, groaning expressions. One involving my excitement in showing Jack some dead decomposing bodies (I thought it would be exciting and scientific and cool for him, I was wrong) in a documentary a friend and I were watching. This was a bad choice on my part, really a lapse of my good mothering sense. I got it back quickly and tended to my son's horror and I think he's over it now. AND one today, in the park a lady lecturing me, demeaning and insulting my friend Trish and I for letting our girls wander off. They were OK, just far far away for a few moments. So anyway I earned the "God help me, this woman is in charge of our kids all day!" expression from John honestly this week. I'm laughing now though, it's all a little funny to me now. Anyway I'm not going to let a little lapse in judgement spoil my week, there will be more dead bodies and little lost children to fret over tomorrow I'm sure.
