Our peanut butter went bad. I don't know how that happened because peanut butter theoretically SHOULD outlast Dick Clark.
I told my son, who has had his life sustained on PB&J's that our peanut butter "HAS ISSUES" and that's why there is just jelly on his bread. This seemed to satisfy him until the next PB&J time when he once again questioned angrily the validity and enjoyment factor of a "jelly only" sandwich offering.
Certainly without the peanut butter our lives are lackluster at best. I mean we can't even REALLY do the always inspiring "Peanut Butter Jelly time " dance with any credibility!!! (Song is added above for your dancing and singing enjoyment, you are so welcome!!)
Without THAT dance I believe my "mommy star quality" is depleted greatly, and this saddens me.
Traxx is doing well and seems to be getting on with his life. He has however adopted a new phrase in this traumatic time. Anytime something DOES NOT work or seem RIGHT to him in any way, he quips wittily "IT HAS ISSUES!!".
No, I CAN'T take a nap because this pillow "HAS ISSUES" mommy!!!
No, I CAN'T ----just drink water--- because our water "HAS ISSUES"!!!
---countered swiftly by: "That soda DOES NOT ---"HAVE ISSUES" mommy!!!!"--------
As I parented him with verbally strong words for putting hair gel in his hair (the whole container,, we'll be faux hawking for weeks!!!) he proudly stated:
"Mommy".......(dramatic pause)........"YOU HAVIN' ISSUES,,,,,,(with the big eyed sweet face he continues),, like our peanut butter????????"
"Yes son,,, I have a few "ISSUES"!!!!!
If life were only THAT simple!!!! And our "ISSUES" were as innocent as a toddlers!!!!
Then we could do the peanut butter jelly dance everyday with gusto and live happily ever after!!!
Hey!! I ALREADY do the peanut butter jelly dance everyday!!!!!!
ROCK ON ME!!!!!!
