Crap Snap Traffic

Like all kids her age, Josie is a parrot, so I get to listen in   on her mother’s adherence to common rules of decency when dealing with traffic. Mommy doesn’t do so well.  Josie gets real bent out of shape when cars dare to be stopped in front of us at a traffic light.  She yells, ” Move it! Let’s go!” and ” Don’t park there cars!” She also yells, ” God” and “Shoot” ( it may be shit, but I give Mommy the benefit of the doubt). I can’t be so generous as I share Josie’s tendency to say “Crap…Snap”. She says them together because we tend to say them together, trying to correct ourselves  and really just fooling ourselves.

After her tirades, Daddy calmly and patiently explains to Josie that we need to share the road with our friends, and that the road is for everybody, and we can all just get along if we can learn to calm down.

OK…. Mommy?

    What a riot…when we were parents of young kids, we could’nt tattle on eachother on line. Such changes! So, as Josie said of the chili…”it needs to calm down”…all the traffic, the schedules etc. etc.
    Thanks for the humor and the wisdom.
