  • Mood:
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?
