Cleaning up throw-up notwithstanding, a girl can have fun beyond her wildest dreams as a mom. Here?s a fun game. I like to call it ?Drop Out.? Let?s say you?re home of an evening and the kids are in bed. Your husband starts to tell you a story about his golf game, or his meeting with the company, or his latest research on grass. Here is how ?Drop Out? works. You sit very very still and stare quietly out the window and don?t respond at all. When
he repeatedly calls your name (assuming he?s noticed you?re not
listening), slowly turn your head and fix him with a totally blank
stare. If your eyes are half-closed so much the better. Then, barely and inaudibly mumble ?huh?? Better yet, just stare at him and don?t say a thing. At
this point, he?ll either abandon his story all together (you win),
retell the story from the beginning (you lose), or keep on talking from
where he left. Just think of the fun!!
Or, you can play a new game I just made up called ?Watch the Mad Lady.? Wait
until one of your babysitters comes to watch the kids and announce
?Here comes Jiggles? in sing-song voice as they walk over to you.
