I posted this article on G+ -- 46 reasons why my three year old might be freaking out -- because it's pretty funny, and then it got me thinking:

What does my recent list look like? Without thinking hard, I have:

  1. I'm sneezing too much

  2. I have to pee and I don't want to get up

  3. My cat is meowing

  4. I'm cold

  5. I'm tired

  6. I can't sleep

  7. I have kitty litter stuck to the bottom of my foot

  8. I'm running late

  9. The store is closed when I wanted to get something

  10. My book is boring

  11. I banged my toe

  12. People

  13. The sun is too bright

  14. My cat is trying to get under the covers with me


Thank goodness I have more perspective and self-control than I did when I was three.

What about you?

Veek covered 9/10 for me.

I've been loving that list. We have been hypothesizing that Mr. D.'s hair is just too heavy as the leading cause of upset lately because it makes us laugh. Or pants. Always the pants.
