Pill Popper and Jaw Dropper

Because of allergies, colds, prevention of colds, and a slight lack of pain tolerance, my husband will often use OTC medication to relieve his symptoms. I, on the otherhand, have a high sensitivity to drugs (which is often confused with a high tolerance for pain--do not be deceived!) and try to avoid medication altogether.

My kid comes up to me with a gummy bear vitamin pinched between his/her lips. With the part of the mouth not holding the vitamin, he/she mumbles, "Mommy, can you get me a drink?"

Looks like its genetic. And dominant.

In other news, guess what my husband called me today.

[His mother's name].

Does your husband call his mother by her first name? What a funny slip up.

Ever since my husband and I started dating, he has referred to me almost all the time as "dear." I think that's so he never has to worry about calling me by the name of an ex-girlfriend or something.

I call my husband too many crazy names. I've called him both my brothers names, our kids names, "Mom", and names of strangers. What is my problem!!!!

When we visit his family, my husband will inevitably call me his little sister's name. He's also called me "Mom" a few times, which doesn't come true 'till May.

Yes, he does call her by her first name. Had he called me "mommy" he probably would have been okay!

I just laughed at the thought of my husband calling his mom Mommy!

all signs point to a freudian slip. wikipedia it, if you are not too caught up on silly things like accuracy.
