I am proud of My Monsters; and they do crack me up; as does my life. (And it hasn't been all honky dory; okay now I am cracking myself up.) A girl from the hood using the phrase “Honky Dory.”
We were on a cruise; and so if any of y'all cruised with children, it ain't pretty. Confine a family in a tiny cabin and force them to get all dressed up for dinner. It isn't pretty. There might be some family out there who said.
“Okay Timmy, now let me adjust your tie, while Susie and Davie get ready.”
Yup there might have been that family.
But here is the memory I have of that trip, and it wasn't our first cruise, but is a memory. A memory we still laugh at.
We were confined on a Cruise Ship for Eight Days. Sure it was a Children's Cruise Ship; but we were confined with three children for eight days; and an eight month old baby.
Finally we were on shore, me carrying a baby and trying to keep track of the other monsters, and we had to book ourselves, by we, I mean ME, into our resort; where Magick would happen.
At last we were in our suite, pretty swanky and huge.
The monsters were besides themselves running around. After being on a cruise; which was great by the way, they were free in a huge three bedroom suite, in the most magical place in the world. (Yah as if the most magical cruise was not enough for them)
I was content to nurse the lil monster on a huge couch, and not in a small state room. Monster number two comes out of The Master Suite, he is soaking wet. Lil monster is almost asleep and he screams.
“Mommy I love this place!”
Okay I think, but you have woken up your sister, but I ask why? And he says,
“Your bathroom is great!!!” He wipes his face with his wet shirt. I laugh, and he says.
“Mommy, your bathroom has two toilets, one you can pee in and one that washes your face.”
Ahh the memories.
