I had a little meltdown Tuesday, and it rather inconveniently placed itself smack in the middle of the time where I pick up my boys from school. When I pulled up I was all snuffly and right away I said, “You guys didn’t do anything wrong, I’m just having myself a little meltdown. It’ll pass.”
Just exactly then, “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” came on the radio.
I busted out bawling again.
Rocky put his hand on my shoulder and said, “Mom, this is, like, the stupidest song ever.”
Laughing through crying helps.

I invite you into my bathroom this morning, right after our shower. (Yes, HunkyDory showers together. Save water; shower with a friend!).
Just, like, in your brain, blur stuff out where The Sim’s game does.
Christmas carols are playing on the iHome.
Hunky: [singing along with ‘White Christmas] IIIIII’m screaming at. A. Whiiiiiiite Supremisiiiiiiiist. Just like the ones I… [stops singing abruptly] There’s a chance I might’ve had too much coffee.
Dory: *blink* *blink blink* I got nothin‘, dude.
Hunky: *wandering off and twirling his hands* [sing-song voice] Tooooo Muuuuuch Caaaawwwffffffeeeeee!
Yeah, that’s how we do what we do when we do what we do.
