Helpless

Heath will be back from his Iowa trip in about an hour, and I am just about counting the seconds. There are two minor situations awaiting his return, the first (and most horrifying to me) being a not-so-small roach sitting under a bowl downstairs. Why did it have to attack me today, of all days, when my husband was completely unable to come to my rescue? (It really did attack me; it crawled out of my pant leg - of the pants I was wearing.) Second on his to-do list, is to un-do whatever Ainsley did when she hit a button on the DVD remote. I've been watching the remainder of my West Wing episode with French subtitles and with the menu still on the screen. For the life of me, I can't figure out how to fix it!

Seriously, when did I become so helpless?!?

Dad wants to know: were you wearing the pants that the roach crawled out of?? Mom and I sympathize with you!

I know I shouldn't laugh, but I couldn't help it. I hope you weren't wearing the pants when the roach crawled out! By the way . . . has Heath been able to fix things?

French subtitles!! Hahahahahahaha!!!!!! I LOVE IT!

And it's so appropriate that Ainsley was the genius behind this classic moment. How is it that children are always so much smarter than the rest of us? Just last month my 6-year-old nephew discovered how to activate something on their Wii that no one had found before. I think it's because they're fearless, unafraid to try and try and try with no thought to consequence. Genius!
