One of the first blogs I started reading on a regular basis a few years ago was Dooce, written by Heather Armstrong. Now, Dooce isn’t for every body. Heather has been known to use bad words. But, when she is talking about her kids and dogs, she can make me laugh a body part off. Take her recent post on December 17th. One of her kids has been sick with a virus, poor thing. For almost a week Heather was able to do virtually nothing but take care of her daughter. Meanwhile, one of her dogs decided to get sick, too. So while taking care of her very ill kid the dog is spewing things FROM BOTH ENDS all over her living room. While reading her take on the whole situation I laughed until I had tears running down my face.
My kids are adults now but I had moments like that when they are little. I also have pets who still do awful things in my home. Like the time Honey pooped in the house and then danced in it and spread it absolutely EVERYWHERE. And that is why I laughed so hard. We have all dealt with it. We all survived, and Heather will, too. But, meanwhile, it is so funny when it happens to someone else!
