1st world problems

8yo [yelling from other room]:  oh, come on!!! seriously!!!

me [walking in there]:  what is going on?

8yo [huffing]:  i put the remote on the pillow and it keeps tumbling off.  IT’S A PROBLEM, mama.  i think it has tumble-of-the-bed-itis.

daddy:  God forbid.  what if you  *gasp* lived in a time when you actually had to get up and go change the channel on the tv??????  THE HORROR

me: [trying not to laugh]

i am a single mother of three

hubby likes that Geico camel commercial, so i sent him an ecard with it on it this morning. my reward for making him chuckle (on a not-very-good day) is???

daddy:  girls, what’s today????

5yo and 8yo:  IT’S HUMP DAY!!!

daddy:  WOO HOOOOO!

whereupon they all laugh hysterically and go crazy woo hooing and yelling hump day.

thanks, babe.
