Polka Dot Sunburn, Off Roading in the Sedan, and Drama In the Sky-Monday's Mama Drama

You Know You H ave Mama Drama When...

1. You forget that little spot on your daughter's back when applying sunscreen so when she takes her bathing suit off she has a nice RED circle right-smack in the lower middle of her back. Didn't seem to bother her, it's just kind of funny to see a single red polka dot on a pasty white kid's back.

2. You have to mud-bog in your SATURN CAR (not 4 wheel drive by the way), because the JD boy left his swim team goggles in Dad's truck and Dad's truck is parked out in a muddy potato field. We went straight to the car wash when we got back into town.

3. Your husband books plane tickets for a sudden and unexpected out of town trip during the week you have scheduled every doctor, dentist, haircut, dog grooming (I'm exaggerating now) appointment that could possibly be scheduled, so you spend an hour on the phone rescheduling appointments. However, it was all for a good cause we went up to see his brother who is being deployed to Iraq at the end of this month. So, I think a couple of doctor and dentist appointments can wait.

4. You find that you have developed a fear of flying after not having been on an airplane for more than 10 years and find yourself checking out the pilot not to see if he is a hottie, but rather that he is SOBER, as you board the plane. You also take note of the flight crew's physical or rather ninja abilities because you want to feel assured they can take out any terrorists that MAY be on the plane as well.

And Finally.....

5. Upon setting eyes on the little puddle jumper plane with the little outward propellers and everything you must board you just look at your husband and say, "REALLY??" Then once on board you consider turning your cell phone back on to call your children and tell them you love them one last time. Yes, I KNOW I am a Drama Queen, but did you get a look at the name of the blog? It's what we're all about around here.

I went on one of those 10 passener putt putt planes once. It was snowing and it was from Denver, CO to Crested Butte, CO. I lost my stomach a few times from the plane going up and down, up and down because of the weather.

You know it's bad when you see the flight attendant strapped into her seat tight, not serving anyone and she gently closes the cockpit door that was left open, it was a small plane. I thought for sure we were going to crash landing on a tiny strip of runway out in the snow in that small plane.

I was thinking...turn that cell phone off! You'll interfere with the signals and make your survival ratio on that propeller driven plane even worse. Actually, I do hate those things because the wind buffets them around so easily.

The sunburn dot is pretty funny! :)

I did the sunblock thing to myself a couple weeks ago! Missed an arm spot and a chest spot and wound up with quite the nice sun stripes!

LOL, it's so easy to miss those darn spots with the sun lotion.

I love dots for sure...

I love polkie dots! A polka dotted girl would fit right in. The hubs said to tell you that all the 40 year old healthy pilots are flying fighter jets. That is why we get stuck with the toddlers and geriatric pilots. hee hee. Pacifiers vs. pacemakers. Ha! Which one do you want flying the friendly skies? YOu know my vote - my feet are planted firmly on the ground especially after we talked.

Poor kid...but it would be kind of funny to see a big dot on her back...

I think I've done the polka dots to myself at one time or another!

Good luck to the Brother in Law in Iraq...he's a hero!
