The Stronger Sex

I am realizing fully why God made women able to put their own illnesses aside to take care of their family. In times of need, we mom's are able to put aside our own aches, pains, sinus infections and annoyance with the fact that the Christmas tree is still standing AND LIT UP, ahem, to make sure that our patients are comfortable and without want. But occasionally, we have to leave a few tasks up to the other parent such as packing the toddler's lunch so he could go play at a neighbor's house while you accompany a friend to the doctor.

I give you the lunch that Dorkfish packed for Deuce:

It's the perfect lunch box for the three-year-old junkie. Hidden under the drugs, is a bag of goldfish, some cheese crackers and a hot dog.

You know, for the munchies.

Hahahahaha ... that's beautiful! My tree is still up and lit because I like how it creates a light void in that corner of the living room ... no ornaments though.

Phil, I don't think it counts unless you have ornaments on it.

Although, I did have a friend who gave up trying to untangle his lights and just plugged his 'Christmas Ball' into the corner every year.

I'm guessing the actual food is only under there because of the labels that said "take with a meal."

being a single parent, I literally don't have time to get sick. It's the worst when that happens and yet, we are women and we are strong, we can do it....again
