Adam: Mom, if I could have one dream forever, I would wish for Cotton Candy Clouds, some Unicorns, Chocolate Raindrops and that I was a “Little Person” driving a Purple Volkswagon into the sunset that is made out of Laffy Taffy!
Me: I would just like to go to bed and not have to get up to Pee twice a night!
Adam: Wow…way to ruin my dreams Woman!!
Every Spring, I am reminded of this beautiful passage of scripture.
Ecclesiastes 3King James Version (KJV)
3 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
Me: Adam, wake up. Before you take a shower, you need to take the dog to potty.
Adam: Jumps in the shower (dog is in the bed)
Me: Did you hear what I said? I told you to take the dog out before you got in the shower.
Adam: Did he jump off the bed?
Adam: He will be fine.
Me: No, he will pee on the bed! If he pees on the bed, you are in so much trouble! I am so tired of having to take care of everything in this house! I told you that the dog is your responsibility in the mornings.
Adam: I have been responsible for two weeks Mom! I need a break!
Me: I have been responsible for 14 years, son! That is when I became a mom!! It’s a full time job!!
Adam: Looks like someone needs a vacation!!!
*The dog urinated on the bed! Adam is grounded. You may ask why I didn’t take the dog out instead of arguing? I asked myself the same question.
Adam may be right about a vacation!
