Mama is Grounded!

The cohabitants at my house were driving me crazy yesterday.  My husband was teasing me relentlessly, my kids were utterly obnoxious, and the dog - well, he came in with a frozen piece of poo in his mouth and deposited it in front of his crate.  Then he vomitted.

"You guys are barbarians!" I said, utterly exasperated.

"Mama is blowing fire out of her nostrils," said my husband.

"Yeah, and smoke out of her ears," said my son.

The dog just looked at me and started licking up his vomit.

I shook my head. 

The man continued.  "Woman, I am going to ground you."

"What are you talking about?" I said, getting even madder.  "You can't ground me!  I'm not a kid!"

"You're grounded!"

"Fine.  But I'm taking my violin up to my room with me."

So my violin and I were grounded for two hours.  But at least I got some good practice time in!

  1. Haha, your hubby didn't know he was actually giving you a well deserved (from the sounds of it) break by grounding you.

    Hmmm...maybe my wife will ground me...? :)

  5. Teasing, obnoxious, frozen poo and vomit. And grounding on top of it? You have a great sense of humor if everyone in your house is still alive. :-)

    1. I hope it gets fixed! I've missed reading your poems!

    2. I briefly saw your poem, but it blinked a couple of times and disappeared. Sorry about the problems you've had. Take a little break and then come back to it when you're not fatigued. Good luck!

  13. That's so gross and hilarious. My little guy screams, "You're fired," when he gets mad. How awesome would it be to be fired for a day?!

  15. Poop in the mouth. Used to have a dog who did that ALL the time. I loved him, but I don't miss that aspect of his life.

    Love,

    1. They say that when dogs eat poop, it's a sign of intelligence. Personally, I'm not so sure about that. ;)
