I had gone cold turkey off my caffeine habit when I started the juice fast a little over a week ago. I got to thinking about how wonderfully regular and all my life was when I enjoyed a cup of coffee first thing in the morning. It seemed to get my whole day started. In more ways than one.
Therefore, I decided to experiment with a cup of java this morning.
I am vindicated. Everything is back to normal. Whatever that is.
And yes, I’m speaking in code.
Every once in a while Fiddledaddy and I will tune into the show Supernanny, just to feel a little bit better about our own parenting skills. We also surround ourselves with friends who can usually top us with a “well my child set the church on fire” kind of story. It levels the playing field.
Interestingly, one such family forwarded an email sent from another such family friend, informing us that Supernanny was coming to Florida and looking for troubled families to film.
Frankly, I think we’d be perfect. However, we’re all far too vain to allow all of our many foibles and dirty linen to be aired on nationwide television. In fact, one of our children who is by far the loudest of us all, is the most quiet and sweet mannered angel in public. No one would ever believe that she has a fiery temper, that is often taken out on my innocent Fiesta Ware.
The other evening something or someone crossed her and I entered the kitchen and posed the question, “Why is she angry at my dishes?”
The rest of us are really no better. Everyone in the family, with the exception of Jensen who is not in possession of any type of filter, can put on a brave front when out among the masses. So I don’t think the show would really want us since we would never allow them to catch us at our worst.
