Hysterical Blindness

The post is inspired by the lovely Momisodes, who knows, all too well, the joys of raising a curious child.

This is a piece I like to call, The eternal struggle of bedtime, and the toddler who just figured out the light switch.

Aww, look at you Mr. Big Man. Finally reachin' that light switch, huh.
Ok, ok. Let's settle down with the light switch, babe.
Listen, things are getting out of hand, a light switch is not a toy!
I am going to call your father in like, 5 seconds, enough with the incessant flipping of the switch!
What the fu- COME ON!

Annnnndddd scene.

oh brother! That was sooooo funny! I think everyone at work thinks I am crazy now! That, and the fact that everytime my super looks over here he see the new Mayo pic and glares at me! hahahaha!

Emily said...

Oh, the joys of raising children. Remind me again why I'm having one...

Fiesty Charlie said...

YOU crack me up!! Simply freaking put!! YOU CRACK ME UP....

Wait, does that make you my new crack? Am I truly addicted?

Ummmmm.... let me make a call and find out...

"9-1-1, what is your emergency?"

"I am trying to decide if I have an addiction."


"I am trying to find out if an addiction to crack is the same as and addiction to someone who cracks me up..."

"Maam, you do know 9-1-1 is for emergencies?"

"This is an emergency, I need to know right now, so I can leave my comment on her blog!"


I am looking for a hefty fine any day now....

The solution to this one is simple. Just move your light switches up another foot or so as needed. Just some light construction work, and you're all set!

Sandy C. said...

LMAO!!!!! Oh man, re-take that scene about 100 times :) You are hilarious!

That last pic has to be what my face looks like all. day. long.

(thanks so much for the link-love!)

Kristen Andrews said...

Excellent scene work - you were very clear on your motivation, and the obstacle was obvious... Sorry, I was a theater major. I just can't help myself from making stupid acting jokes.

Can I just tell you how happy I am that the mayo pic is now your profile picture. I am oozing with enjoyment.

Jennifer said...

The magic peek-a-boo switch! It would just go on for hours if we let them, wouldn't it?

Very cute!!

Brittany said...

Marie...Thanks doll!

Misty...Why thank you as well girly!

Peanut...Glad you thought so!

Dan...Well, you know me, any excuse to wield power tools and caulk...I would need caulk right? I try to incorporate it into all my handy work.

Sandy...YAY! Our lives are hilarious!

Kristin...Thank you missy!

Beth...See, I am so glad you liked it, i really wanted to be able to capture the emotion:) And thanks, i found that picture to be, BY FAR, the most appropriate form of greeting people!

Jennifer...It sure feels like it goes on for hours...and hours....and hours

I'm a little late to the party here, but it looks like everyone is really diggin' what you're servin' on this Post (but, then, why should this post be any less brilliant than any other!) Acting...Genius!!

Brittany said...

Politi...Um, what can I say, you know I operate with high standards, having graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Jon Lovitz School of Theatre.
