Finger Jam, Mac & Cheese, and No Privacy...

Everything has a place, an order, and a reason for existence, right? But, how often do we ignore something's place, its order, or its reason for existence even when we know better? We know that our feet don't belong in our mouths or on the dinner table. Even though we know that, we still chew on them as babies, or maybe even adults, and we still sit back relaxed with our feet up. We know that there is a handle on a toilet to flush it or a door knob/handle on a door to open or close it but we don't always use it.... that is honestly my point here... there is no deep philosophical thought coming, its simply that I am an adult, and that a door has a handle for a reason and I completely... and I mean completely ignored it, as I often do. Today that came back to bite me... or rather... jam me? Office doors at work have a handle to open the door, and shut the door; seems pretty simple and honestly logical and well just plain common sense which I clearly don't have today... or most days. I spoke to someone in their office and when walking out I pulled the door shut behind me, but holding onto the door itself, not the actual handle... and then... yup shut my finger right in between the door frame and the door. I = dumb. I said a few choice words, other coworkers laughed, in which I did too, because I mean come on, how unintelligent of myself. I don't think I broke it but its got a pretty good bump and it hurts... typing this is painful but... that is what I get for ignoring the laws of placement, order and existence. Insert the "angry kangadillo" from the last post...


Don't you worry though I am not the only one that ignores the laws of placement, order and existence in this household. That chubb of a one year old Evalie, she likes to make her own rules. She beats to her own drum and she often does her own thing without a care in the world, one day that will come back to bite her... like it did her Mama. However, when she does her own thing and breaks all the laws of placement, order and existence it just ends up messy... and I mean MESSY. You've seen me talk about her love of food, but her love of Mac & Cheese is on an entirely different level. Mac & Cheese meet cute dimply face, forehead and what little hair she does have. Trust me Mac & Cheese does not belong on the forehead or the face but it sure is cute when you're a chubby one year old.


Evalie also... doesn't care about the existence of privacy and trust me fur mama, fur dada, human mama or human dada you all and I mean ALL know what I am talking about. Mama's may know this a little more than the dada's BUT what was once a "hiding" place in the bathroom is literally no longer a thing when fur babies or human babies are involved... and Evalie... she is the best at not giving a damn about whether or not you want to be alone in the bathroom for any amount of time. It could be mom or dad she doesn't care; she is now of the age where she barges in, brings a toy for you both to play with together and if you tell her to leave, she just looks at you like, "excuse me... you talkin' to me? Cuz I'm not leavin'". If she wasn't so cute it would probably be more upsetting but how can you resist a tiny dimply human that knows what she wants and goes to get it, even if that means spending time with her favorite humans, in the most unsanitary of places...



Everything has a place, an order and a reason for existence, and although I started this off saying that we should really follow those rules because if you don't you end up with an injured finger or cheese on your face and forehead... sometimes just sometimes rules, placement, order, and existence or what we know of them are meant to be broken or rearranged in order to get what we want and to find our happy place.


So break all the rules just don't get a finger jam injury in the process....


We're keepin' it real...
